Black Halo dresses are too gorgeous not to be copied

February 27th, 2009

Black Halo Keyhole Ruffle Sleeve Sheath in Ash
This Black Halo Keyhole Ruffle Sleeve Sheath is probably one of Black Halo’s most recognizable dresses. So many celebrities have worn it. Understandably. It is extremely feminine and figure-flattering.

Lo and behold, I found a much wallet-friendlier version of it.
ruffle-sleeve-sheath-dress RUFFLE-SLEEVE SHEATH DRESS $49.50 at Alloy.com. It has the similar deep but narrow split v-neck, the pretty ruffle sleeves, a nipped waist. This one is only a little shorter, lands above the knee instead of just below the knee, which makes for a younger look.

I want pretty plates

February 26th, 2009

I’m kinda becoming embarrassed about serving food on mismatched plates when we have company over because I seem to habitually break plates periodically. We can definitely use a few new sets of plates. How refreshing looking are these? They would look so cute holding dumplings.
