It's summer, so we're back to watching marathons of home-improvement shows.
I smelled something incredible today, Beyond incredible, really. Totally divine, but this story will have to wait a few months. In the meantime I can tell you that I've been enjoying the bottles I picked from the Henri Bendel clearance: Undergreen Black and Sideris by Maria Candida Gentile.
Even more eyeliner than usual.
Frequently worn Item/Outfit
A DVF shirt dress in the classic chain print. Goes with everything from heels to flip-flops.
That Henri Bendel sale. I love the bargains, especially on stuff I planned to buy anyway, but I do feel guilty to enjoy the demise of a NYC icon.
I'm going to take a page from my reader Eileen and shrug off any banes. What banes? It's summer, the world looks and feels glorious, there are so many joys, big and small, and so much love.
Real friends who inspire me, set me straight, and remind me how lucky I am.
I'll show and tell soon.
Home improvements. The guest bedroom is in a dire need of redecorating.
