Enter Dior. They have declared "nude" to be the color of the season and even created their own polish to celebrate called "Nude Chic". It's $19 and only available for a limited time... so you better stock up now. Your nails will thank you.

I bought these...
I was also tempted to buy these and these...
and if I was really saucy I would have bought these....
I stole this from fashionista.com, but it's just too juicy not to pass along. Now, who loves you the most? I do, I do!
Because of a major lawsuit filed against major department stores in California in 2003 (it seems some of the big name stores were purposely holding back inventory to up the price of high end beauty products), everybody is getting paid back in a major way next week.
Starting January 20th, major stores like Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s are being forced to give away $175 million worth of beauty products nationwide, for free, to anybody who walks into their stores.
Shoppers only get one item per cosmetic company, while supplies last - Think Chanel, Estee Lauder, L’Oreal, etc.
Click here for a full list of stores/beauty brands.
And please, put all those eco-friendly totes to good use on Tuesday.

Especially this little guy who kept me entertained during lunch today.
That said, I did get a chance to have a sneak peek at Theory's new Spring line yesterday. It is all bright, electric colors, stirrup pants and sequins. I am not into florescent yellows or pinks or anything. But if I had $325 to drop, it would have been on a short black sequined mini-skirt. Oh well, I still have the baby to keep me entertained!

When we were little we would spend hours playing with our cabbage patch dolls. Dressing them up, feeding them bottles and changing their teeney tiny diapers. As we got older, and in our pre-tween minds more sophisticated, we switched to barbie. Hours were spent decorating the perfect room for barbie, picking out the perfect hair style for her date with Ken and fighting over who got to wear the formal dress and who got to wear the mini-skirt.
Time moved on and we paid less attention to dolls and more attention to boys and school. Instead of decorating barbie's dreamhouse we were decorating our first apartment. And fake weddings turned into the real thing. But always, somehow, we were still kids.
And with new babies and new homes and new families, we will still always be kids. Just kids with better toys.
Today my sister finally had her little baby girl. Welcome to the family baby Elle... we've been waiting for you!

Each time I tried to remove them and add something new, I couldn't do it. They are like an old sweater - warm, comforting and familiar. So instead I put them into a new playlist and added some new Sasha, Beck and even a little David Bowie. We'll see what happens.

I bought wet leggings.
Well not wet as much as shiny spandex. I tried them on and as soon as the guy in the store told me I had the perfect legs for them I was done. And his advice as I was walking out of the store...
"These are like a bathing suit. No dryer. No iron. They will melt."
The only thing melting is my heart, because I am in love with them.

Somewhere around 1996-1997 I quickly fell out of love with plaid and in love with flowey skirts and hippie shirts.
Today I am going to hunt down a plaid flannel dress. It only seems fitting in this cold, cold city.
