I've been out of commission this week with a pretty awful bug, so dressing up has not exactly been on the agenda. I made myself pull it together for this week's style challenge though... and boy was it a challenge! I don't have any authentic turbans so I spent an hour or so in front of the mirror grabbing scarves out of my closet and tying them in silly knots around my head, putting my hair up, taking it down, twisting it in a scarf, and who knows what else before I finally gave up on a full turban and decided to go with the 'Rosie the Riveter' look.

Who knew you could have two awesome picnic party prints in one? This dress is not only the happy marriage of polka dots and gingham, but it's pretty much my definition of a picnic dress (whatever that is).

While I was in Los Angeles last weekend I tagged along with Meghan and Kellen on a trip to Fashion Island for brunch and a little window shopping. I think we all agreed it's pretty much some sort of shopping Disneyland.

Once again, Lucky FABB did not fail to delight and inspire. I had such a great time listening to the panel speakers and hearing words of advice and inspiring stories from Zac Posen, Janie Bryant, and Elizabeth Banks (to name a few). After the conference I got a chance to catch up with old friends and meet a few new ones while sipping on lychee martinis and listening to a beautiful performance by A Fine Frenzy. My only regret is that I didn't get to meet more people at the conference!
