I am attending a wedding at the end of the month in D.C. I am having a lot of trouble finding a reasonably priced petite dress to wear. This time of the year a lot of dress have stripes, polka dots, flowers, or are neon. The wedding ceremony starts at 3pm, so I need something that will transition from day to night. I am open to color suggestions. I only ask that they not be black or white. Budget-wise I’d like to keep it $100 and below. Please help! –Christa
When I initially went searching for a dress for you, I bookmarked a bunch of dresses that are striped, brightly colored, or floral print, because apparently I have a really bad short term memory and they were all really cute. Then I went back and looked at your email, and I realized this is indeed a tough season to be looking for a simpler style of dress.
But this fashion mission isn’t impossible, and I did find a few options that I think would work really well for this wedding (and other events throughout the year!). Read on for all the details about these four lovely frocks… Keep reading »
Does the layout of this modern apartment look familiar? That’s because it’s Dexter Morgan’s Miami apartment from the show “Dexter,” recreated in painstaking detail by illustrator Iñaki Aliste Lizarralde. His depictions of TV homes are available as posters from his Etsy shop, and include such notable spaces as Lorelai’s sprawling Stars Hollow house from “Gilmore Girls,” Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment, and The Simpson’s Springfield abode.

A couple weeks ago I saw a sappy romantic movie with my friend Kevin. I won’t tell you which movie at the risk of spoiling it for you, but at the end of this sappy romantic movie, the main character finds out that her best friend was actually a ghost. I was totally thrown off by this ghost plot twist, but it turns out Kevin was quite taken with the idea of being friends with ghosts. “Think about it,” he told me on the way home, “a ghost friend would never get in the way of where you wanted to put a chair.” I had no idea that Kevin was so inconvenienced by the way his mortal friends get in the way of his chairs, but apparently it’s a major problem in his life. When I mentioned the concept of ghost friends to Ami, she, too, was instantly obsessed, so we teamed up to compile the following list of reasons to be friends with a ghost. Read on if you’re in the market for a supernatural BFF… Keep reading »
I’m pretty sure Amelia is on a plane flying over the Atlantic right now, which means I’m safe to post something positive about her arch nemesis, Eva Mendes. Good timing, too, because this outfit she wore out in New York City yesterday is one of my favorite outfits of all time. The fabulously retro coat makes her look like Sophia Loren stepping out of a time portal from the 60s, while the textured tights and stiletto booties feel very modern. Sigh. So perfect. Uh oh, now I’m starting to hate her too… [Photo: Splash News]
