I've been a longstanding ICE T fan... no really, I have been. He makes Law and Order SVU even better. And getting a glimpse in to his marriage to this woman who defies nature with her measurements reminds me that one day I will find MY perfect match, too. (cue the peanut gallery)
I tried to explain to someone why I like this show, and I came up empty. I don't really like any of them or attribute them with redeemable qualities, but I can't turn away. It's like a sparkly, heavily-accented train wreck that keeps me tuning in week after week.

I love my hometown. One of the newest things to love is the huge I HEART MEMPHIS mural on the side of a building in Mid-town. (Memphians: It is behind Urban Outfitters)
It screamed at me as the perfect place to take my birthday outfit pics.

A couple months ago, I won a giveaway at one of my favorite blogs, Feminine Bravery. I love her blog so much because she is NOT afraid of color and she knows I am not either, so she sent me a lovely shade of Lingerie Pink! Ooh-la-la!
I won the BEST shade of lipstick ever, and at the request of the giveaway-er I sent her pics of me wearing the lipstick! Charlie, of Feminine Bravery, has all of the giveaway winners showcased on her blog with their pics. Find the pics I sent in below and you can VOTE FOR ME on the sidebar of her blog, if you think I won the challenge!
Here's a little info on my outfit from the pictures:
I bought this dress two months ago, from ASOS, for my birthday dress.
And as I have mentioned--my birthday is THURSDAY!
So I wanted to share the pics I sent her on Matters of Merrymaking, too!
My birthday party is at the casinos, so I chose a flapper-esque dress and can't wait to show you the pictures after the soiree! (These pics were just a warm-up! Birthday dress rehearsal, if you will!)
|dress: ASOS | shoes: payless | belt: dots | necklace: sister's | ring: gifted|
I hope you liked them and please check out Feminine Bravery and the other lovely ladies who won the giveaway! Vote for who you think won the challenge :)

HAPPY JUNE, YA'LL!
and boy, is it a hot one!
Speaking solely for myself, it is way to hot outside to even function. Especially, when you add in the humidity, heat index, and air alerts. It's cray cray.
I took these pics last night when we went out to a friend's art opening. I wasn't even planning on shooting my outfit, if you can believe it. I saw these amazing location and was like "TAKE MY PICTURE!" It's such a fashion blogger thing to do, chickens.
Thankfully, my fellow art aficionados agreed & sister #2 even hopped in a couple herself, that little fashion maven.

The art show was fabulous! The picture above was my favorite piece, so I had to snap a pic.
I love art openings and trolley nights, where the whole arts districts has shows.
SO MUCH FUN! Especially when there is a nightcap, aka, a top shelf margarita.
I hope all of my chickens are staying cool and comfy, and enjoying their weekend.
Summer camp starts MONDAY! As does:
BEKAH'S BIRTHDAY WEEK!
My birthday is Thursday, so be prepared for tons of merrymaking and posts on ME!
