Calling all Short People

If you are vertically challenged like myself than you will love the Japanese Soho store, UniQlo. I have visited this store a few times on my previous trips to NY but I just found out on Sunday while shopping with my friend Ranchel a great secret, they hem all pants for FREE, full price or on sale. And they guarantee it will be done within 24 hours, how amazing is that!! Today I am sporting a new pair that I bought on Sunday that they hemmed for me in less than 2 hours! Also, just because it’s in Soho doesn’t mean its ubber expensive, they have great affordable prices and it’s a great place to shop for the basics, like as seen in the photo, t-shirts and sweaters in every color.

Erin and Matt

We just got back from a weekend in Long Island and Manhattan, on Friday we witnessed our friends Matt and Erin tying the knot, it was in the bride’s hometown of Huntington Long Island, which is a very charming town. We had a great time and here are a few photos to capture the day.

New York City!

This Thursday Chris and I will be driving up to Long Island for a Friends wedding, because it is a Friday wedding we have decided to spend the weekend in Manhattan and all I can keep thinking about is going to the Room and Board store in SoHo. I first visited this store in Chicago and fell in love with its clean lines and contemporary style, unfortunately we do not have it here in DC. I'm in love with their concept of "design your own" which are modular systems with multiple inserts to pick from. I have been eyeing this dresser for months now and I think I'm ready to take the plunge and splurge on something special for our bedroom. Now we just need to decide what combo works for us.

Go to the pool, it's HOT

Forget those boring suits I posted last week, these one pieces from Anthropologie are way cooler, thanks Kenzie Kate for posting about them. I think I love the pink one the most!

Girls Weekend

Tonight I will be heading down to Virginia Beach for a girls weekend with some college friends. This prompted me to run out on Thursday night and buy a new bathing suit. But you won’t find me looking at Bikinis, too much of my “cream” skin showing sometimes scares people away so I prefer to cover up a bit more. I had a very difficult time finding one pieces that didn’t look like something my mom would wear. Here are a few from JCREW that are simple yet so classy and I wish I had planned ahead more and bought some of these.

(If I looked like these girls I would wear a bikini)
