Super Pretty Funny {numero 8}

Between last week’s fashion posts and what feels like constant meetings, this week has felt quite dressy. The gorgeous shot of Jean Shrimpton wearing Lanvin in 1965 felt appropriate heading into the weekend.

What is new? I’m still treading water to stay afloat at work but hoping I see an end to the craziness next week! It doesn’t help that the sink in my bathroom literally fell out of the wall on Tuesday {as previously mentioned, I live in the Money Pit}. The optimist in me would say such things add a little bit of adventure to every morning. The pessimist in me thinks it is freaking annoying.

But I have a fabulous girl’s night to look forward to on Saturday evening. We’ve printed the Matchbook Guide to 50 Classic Movies and will settle in for a night of good old fashioned films, food and fashion pajamas. I also started watching The Wire this week and am totally addicted.

The other big news is that I have been working on a redesign of the blog in any spare minute I can find! I’m taking the leap into self-hosting and a professional design. I hope to get some CSS coding cracked over the weekend and perhaps – work with me here universe…no more falling sinks… – launch it in the near future!

Have a great weekend,

xx J
