Halloween dogs.


Have you noticed that dogs in costumes, no matter how outrageously cute, always look really unhappy? Still, this is the cutest gargoyle I've ever seen.

Yeah, yeah, I'm still alive.

Yeah, it's been a while. A long, long while. My excuse?: I've found it suprisingly hard to maintain a Facebook account and a blog at the same time. Seriously.

But, nonetheless, I've been filing things away to share with y'all.

Like this great postcard from the golden years of bully-dog-hood (thanks Bad Rap Blog!):


And this dress, from Anthropologie, which I really must have:


It's funny, because I'm really not into the one-shouldered Flinstones thing, at all, but I love this dress. Maybe it's the fact that the one-shouldered thing is sheer black net, and I have a thing for sheer black anything? Anyway, I simply covet the dress.

(But I've been good, and haven't actually shopped at Anthropologie in so long. Really, you'd be proud. Global economic collapse has been a real motivator. Speaking of which, get moving on your "recession garden"!)

I've also (finally) discovered Net-A-Porter, home to designer apparel that is so ridiculously far out of my price range as to not even constitute a shopping risk. That sound you hear? That would be a strangulated moan of appreciation coming from my throat:


It's so subtle and understated, but so beautiful! And priced at less than one mortgage payment (calculated based on pre-bubble-bursting real estate values - i.e., the amount I actually pay), it's practically a steal!

I'll be back - in less than three months this time, I promise!
