The Monday Rundown

New series alert!  Every Monday I’m going to bring four things to you that are currently making me happy.  A little happy dose for the worst day of the week! Sigh.

T By Alexander Wang One Shoulder Dress: I tried this dress on at Fred Segal a few weeks ago but they didn’t have my size (as I mentioned here).  I couldn’t resist so I ended up ordering the LSD (Little Sage Dress) from ShopBop.com and liked it SO much that I then ordered the same version in black.  The bad news?  Both versions are now on sale and I paid full price.  Get them on sale (since I didn’t)!  The sage version is marked down to $99 (from $165) and the black version is marked down to $82.50 (also from $165)!

Birthday Cake in a Jar: As of late, I’ve been consumed with the idea of cakes in a jar.  It’s weird, I know, but I’m thinking it may be a side affect from this super strict diet that I’m currently on (more about that later…so not Monday appropriate).  This recipe looks fairly easy, for the baking-retarded like myself, and is pretty and festive.

NARS Nail Polish in “Orgasm”: Everyone raves about the color “Orgasm” from NARS and I’ve always agreed – the color is pretty and works well on almost all skin tones.  And then I came across the nail polish version and became and even bigger believer.  I want, no, I NEED this color for summer.

“All You Need Is Love” hand painted wall decor: The famous Beatles quote is, simply put, just lovely hand-painted on a wooden plank.  The artist makes these in Northern California and can even customize color and size.  I’m contemplating this for my entry way.  Thoughts?
