I just realized this is the debut of my vintage eyeglasses! They are cat eye, from the 50s. I love them so much! And I got really really nice lenses for them so I want to wear them all the time. Please forgive my gross sleepy face, though. I'm still getting 5 hours of sleep a night. Too much to do!

I wanted to be comfy so I wore this grey sack dress. Since it's so billowy and short it begs for colourful accessories, as you can tell by how often I wear this thing. Little black dress? Pfft. Little GREY dress. I like the way the red goes with the tights from We Love Colors, I was worried I'd look too superhero or something. But I think just the little touch of red is just the thing, and the tights make the dress look really mod.

I also really love my new ring from LuShae Jewelry. I've been wearing this every day since I got it. I was worried the stones might get damaged from all the work I do with my hands but this thing looks like it just came out of the box! This is my favourite kind of ring; unique with a bit of bling but still nice and flat. They have a bunch of other things I really liked, too, and even my brother liked this ring!

In other news, my apartment is coming along. We started painting last night (don't worry, I changed out of my cute outfit first!). Here's a crappy cell phone pic of my new bedroom colour:



I'm accenting with red, dark blue, grey, and white. What do you think?

I leave for New York City tomorrow morning! I have a pretty full schedule at this point but feel free to toss some recommendations my way! I'll try to pre-write a Friday Links post for tomorrow but otherwise I might not update until I get back. Then I pack up and move next weekend. I can't wait for it to be June, jeez, maybe then I can get some sleep!

You NEED to get at least one doughnut at The Doughnut Plant, 379 Grand Street
New York, NY 10002. They serve life-changing doughnuts there!

Also, go to Beacon's Closet in Park Slope, smaller than the one in Williamsburg but cheaper and more vintage. You probably already know about the flea markets but The Garage Flea Market in Chelsea is my favorite!

A lovely lady once told me to put clear fingernail polish on costume jewelry with stones; she swore that none of her crystal stones have ever come out. I've never tried it but maybe you'll find the courage to.
