A fun and useful form

I have always wanted a dress form but kept putting it off because they aren't cheap and I couldn't find one that was cute. Finally I spotted one months ago at Pier One but still waited. Months later I had a coupon for $10 off plus a $25 gift card, AND the dress form was on sale. With the planets aligning like that, I couldn't resist. Now I finally have something that is ornamental but also purposeful. This model is called the Frenchy Mannequin.

Fall Chanel nail polishes are here, ready or not

Fashion is always at least one season ahead. I already scored the three Fall 2013 nail polishes from Chanel. It looks like green undertones will be a common theme as we move into fall. Alchemie is lighter than its predecessor Peridot, and Mysterious is a little closer to Vertigo than I would have liked, but nevertheless a cool polish anyway. Elixir is a well-pigmented rosy color and perfect for just about anyone. They should already be in your local department stores as well as your local Chanel boutique.
