little white frock
I have been looking for the perfect white sundress for years, but it’s one of those summer staples I’ve just never been able to nail down. I finally found The One, and it’s only $24.99! Be still my heart. It’s light but not sheer, strapless and stays put, and falls in a flattering, slight A-line cut. You can wear this frock a million different ways. Pair it with a jean...
Snapshot: even concrete can be pretty!

“It’s always best to be yourself. You have to care deeply, and at the same time, not give a damn.” –– Iris Apfel If you’re anywhere near Salem, Massachusetts, go check out Rare Bird of Fashion: The Irreverent Iris Apfel, at the Peabody Essex Museum. (If there’s one quality I love in a girl, it’s irreverence.)
mad for spring
Confession: I am not a Mad Men fan. About two dozen of my friends and co-workers have told me that I would love it, must watch it, have to see it now. I’ve tried – really I have. As a TV show aficionado and pop culture junkie, I want to like it. And believe me, I am as aware of Jon Hamm’s charms as the next girl. But whenever I make it through a whole episode, I’m left feeling...

singin' in the rain
Get ready for April showers. Ever since Kristin Davis carried a big, clear bubble umbrella in Sex and the City, I’ve had a thing for this rainy day accessory. Target has an inexpensive option, in yellow, teal, black, red and purple trim.
pretty eats: salsa chicken
Delicious, healthy recipe courtesy of my bff: Place chicken breast in a baking dish, cover in salsa of your choice, and bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes, or until cooked through. Garnish with cilantro (optional). Et Voila!
pretty little things: cheap and chic
This $5 ($5!!!) make-up bag from Old Navy combines two of my favorite looks: a mod pattern and a nautical color scheme.
pretty little things: wink and a smile
This iPhone 4 case by Kate Spade provides your iPhone with some serious protection, while managing to look slim and enticing at the same time. It’s Audrey Hepburn in the role of Bond, Jane Bond. (I’d have seen that movie!)
the nest: pretty pets
I know a lot of Pretty Is girls who crave canine companionship, but don’t have room in their lives for a pup just yet. Until you find your one true puppy love, try these pretty pooches on for size. They’d look great on any mantel, shelf or bookcase. I’d name them Pippa and Kate, just to be cheeky, or Etta and James, in honor of the late great lady crooner.

Taylor Swift told teen cancer patient Kevin McGuire she couldn’t go with him to his prom… but aked him to be her date to the ACM awards instead.
If you haven’t caught an episode of USA’s White Collar yet, you’re in for a treat. Matt Bomer is perfection as art thief and con man Neal Caffrey. Like all the best gentlemen thieves – Pierce Brosnan in The Thomas Crown Affair, Cary Grant in To Catch A Thief – Caffrey is impeccably dressed, maddeningly witty, and totally intoxicating. A thief, but a gentleman first. In Season 2, the show...
