No outfit is complete without laser beam eyeballs.

On Valentine's Day, this handsome man planned several surprise adventures. I dressed to tackle anything Grego could conjure for our day. It was wonderful.

I even wore a little makeup. That does not happen very often.

black top - Express
black dress - I'm not sure. It was a gift.
black belt - thrift
black tights - TJ Maxx

Sunday, we went to Playhouse in the Park and I wore this sparkling garment, in all it's not-tied-back maternity glory.

I really don't know why I don't wear these tights more often.

These cats secretly dream of modelling.

Not I, though.

tights - I actually bought these at a little hosiery store in London. It was in a Tube station of all places.

I had the loveliest Monday! It was a holiday for we government workers and I got a little dolled up to shop around with Mel.

This cape is amazing. Greg's mother gave it to me ... She bought it brand new in the '70s and wore it every day for a decade.

Today is my first foray into beret-dom. I'm getting mixed reviews but I love how the combination of yellow hat and cobalt cardigan turn my eyes into blazing blue laser beams.

02-17 makeup
You've heard of the lipstick indicator? This is the face of someone that buys into it (so to speak). I found a Hard Candy makeup kit for a steal and went nuts.

hat - Urban Outfitters ... It was expensive but our darn intern runs around with these cute little berets all of the time and so I was forced to up the hat ante.
