A Damsel in White

Here in DC, and some parts of the East Coast, we've been enjoying some pretty mild weather - think mid 50s - for Dec. But according to the news, snow storms were coming our way (ended up only being like 2in. in my neighborhood, while it was bad enough to flip cars in other places). Looks like winter's ready to make hr entrance!

AND, as we've been dutifully enjoying, reeling, and anticipating an episode of Scandal every Thursday, and the days in between, I thought it'd be nice to get into some Olivia Pope style white coats. Not only will you look like a loyal gladiator, here's a great way to look fab this season, and "blend in with the elements."

Below you'll find your Pope coats, in the highs and lows of prices. Enjoy.

What are some of your picks, or ideas, for Olivia Pope white coats this season?

I'm back :)

Yes, I've been quite busy.

Right now, I'm actually nearing the end of an Oracle DBA course (Google it). And hopefully, I can get a job within a month. Cross your fingers, pray and fast, cuz this gal needs to start making real money - there are tons of stuff I gotta do including paying off my student loans, business start-up, traveling, 25th bday planning - and they all need MONEY!

Anyways, I would definitely try as much as possible to do at least one post a week, or two. I've abandoned the blog long enough.

I hope y'all enjoy what's to come!

Day 1: May Wedding Photo Challenge

Day 1: wedding dress

I'm posting this dress because it's something I envision myself wearing. It's from the 2013 fall bridal Oscar de la Renta collection. But then, sometimes what we want is far from what we get...

May Wedding Photo Challenge

I don't participate in photo challenges, but since I'm interested in weddings, and planning one at the moment, I'll participate in this one.
