What I’m Wearing
* Vintage faux suede teal dress …belted ….seen here
* Vintage gold tone stretchy skinny belt …last seen here
* Vintage gold plate necklace …last seen here and here
* Graziano Triangle drop earring …gilt.com/FUSE ….TwitPic of purchase {and just so happen to match this necklace swimmingly! …excited about that realization this morning}
* Tom Ford “Yvette” sunglasses
* Metallic Marc by Marc Jacobs peep toe platform pumps …last seen here ..originally purchased for wedding reception November 2006

* Hair: twisted back top sections and clipped in back …waved a few sections with the 1″ iron today.

While it is actually raging hot in LA right now, every time I look in my closet I’m subconsciously putting together Fall outfits …which I’m trying desperately to stay away from until absolutely necessary. Why? Because I know that about two months in I’m going to be sad I can’t wear any of my short sleeved numbers and/or wishing I didn’t have to wear a jacket everyday – everywhere. Needless to say, about half of my closet ends up on our bed in the mornings as I tear through outfits -on/off, on/off- in a rampant hurry. Although I wish I could be more proactive, it’s rare when I actually go to bed knowing what I’m going to wear the next day …It’s madness I tell you, madness.

    Your madness turns out EVERY time lady! I too had this problem UNTIL…i decided i would try on my closet at night. Since i’m a night owl and all, it’s easier to decide what to wear with no hurry.

    Seriously! I can never plan my outfits out a head of time- and if I do, I’ll change my mind. Things tend to look better in my mind. Especially late a night. :)

    I used to put my outfits together at night… but I’d usually change my mind in the morning depending on my mood… sometimes I am in the mood to wear certain outfits, and sometimes I’m just not!

    Glad to know that even YOU (someone who is always so put together) has piles of clothes left in your wake just like me.

    I always feel like a train wreck hit my house when I leave.

    That color is AMAZING on you…Makes your eyes look unreal!

    *~FYI Side Note: My son walked in his first Fashion Show today at NY Fashion Week. He has 2 more shows left…CRAZY!

    Visited LA for the first time last year around Halloween, I loved your weather and was even boiling on some days, must’ve been a flukey(?) week. I hope it’s like that again this year as I plan on visiting in November :)
    You look stunning, I love everything about this!

    Great dress!! I am totally in love with those shoes!!! Very very nice!

    Oh and I totally hear you on the wanting to wear the cute little short sleeve numbers in two months. I am so torn right now between wanting Fall to come and Summer to stay because since I live in Boston, I know once it gets cold it never stops. LOL

    Fall is definitely upon us in Pa. I’m wearing my “Marilyn” sweater today, just like the one she wore in Lets Make Love. The resemblance stops there.
