"Fading everything to black and blue."




Tart tank top. Xhilaration bandeau. Ed Hardy skirt. BCBG wedges.
Swarovski earrings. Marc Jacobs and House of Harlow rings.





A faux pas, as well as giant pet peeve of mine, is when bra straps stick out--particularly with tank tops. I find that most tank tops aren't cut straight in the back and are more or a less a racerback style which is a nuisance to wear bras normally; the straps always show.

Solutions:
1. Strapless/convertible bra; this convertible bra from Forever 21 is cute and an amazing deal!
2. A bandeau top (like I did; I actually combined it with a strapless bra since my tank top was cut deep).
3. Crossback bras also usually work well; these bras from the Victoria's Secret Pink Collection are my favorites and they're a bargain.
4. Using a convertible bra connector with a regular bra; I've also heard you can buy them a dollar stores.

I'm a bit OCD so when my bra straps are showing, I know I can't concentrate on doing anything else because I'll be so focused on trying to hide them every five seconds. Finding a solution to the nuisance is a really lot less time consuming!



"Ringer" is on tv tonight, yay! I love it, it's probably one of my new favorite shows. I was skeptical Sarah Michelle Gellar could be as good as she was in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," but she is amazing!

I'm starting to get into "Hart of Dixie"; I'm not a huge fan, but I think I'm starting to warm up to it. I also feel like one of the reason people might not like Zoe so much is because Rachel Bilson's character dresses so much more fabulously than everyone.

"Gossip Girl" was pretty good last night. I was really happy that Chuck got that dog, Monkey, because it's a reference to the book; although in the book, Chuck's character has an actual monkey. TV Chuck is really nothing like the Chuck in the books; I like him a lot better in the show. The show is hardly anything like the books and honestly, if I didn't like the show so much, I would be really mad it's so different.

Does anyone watch CW television shows as much as I do? I watch almost everything on that network.
