Lulu Letty: March 2011

iPhone Photos: Spring Wardrobe

My wardrobe is pretty set for spring. I've been accumulating some of these pieces for a while now...

Rikki of Kissyface was so very nice and sent me a Western bow tie and wooden floral brooch. You'll be seeing both pieces very soon in future shoots.

I had a store credit just itching to be used at Dear Creatures. I bought the Hannah dress in stripes and the Colonel blouse in purple/beige (which is on sale).

Siren sent me two very pretty chiffon blouses. I will be pairing both with wide leg trousers.

I have three events coming up in the next two months and these two Dahlia dresses will be seeing me through- my sister's baby shower, a cousin's bridal shower and my 30th birthday party (yikes I'm not ready to be 30). I bought both dresses on asos with one of the 20%off coupons that they're always sending to my email. iPhone Photos: Spring Wardrobe
And last, but certainly not least- I was finally able to procure the elusive Rachel Antonoff Bass floral navy saddle shoes. It was a happy accident when I checked Free People on Monday and got the last pair available in my size. They arrived this morning. Happy dancing ensued.

Thank You So Much for all the incredibly kind comments on my new haircut, Cole's b-day, water-heater problems/fixes and my crazy thyroid. All your love and support means so much!

Yours,
Maria Sig 2

Can you say "sunflare overload!" Cole and I were a bit off with our sunset timing yesterday. We're not used to it being so sunny and staying bright so late, making us off by a good hour and a half.:o In a way, I like some of the photos since they have a more grainy strangely-exposed film quality. But the perfectionist part of me, that dominates all, really wishes they were more clear.

I've been a really slow blogger this week and haven't been the best with responding to emails and comments. Just know that I'm not purposely being rude. My only excuse is that things have been a bit rough with my thyroid since I stopped the synthroid. The highs and lows are happening so fast that it's making my head spin. I'm hoping once my body adjusts to being off the drugs, it will start to chill out.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that Cole was able to fix the water heater issue on Monday. He installed a new something-or-other and then had a plumber come in to fix a broken valve. It wasn't too bad since we high-tailed it to my parents for the weekend, but it's amazing how one day without hot water and I was a mess. I obviously would not survive long in the olden days.

Yours,
Maria Sig 2

Camp Dear Creatures

Camp Dear Creatures
For two years, I have longed to buy this Dear Creatures' dress. Ever since I saw the Zooey cotton commercial, I knew it had to be mine. Finally, two months ago I lucked out and found one on sale at 80s Purple in my size. I've been holding back and waiting for warmer weather, knowing already how I wanted to style it. While it's still so cold outside, at least all the snow is gone. Fingers crossed, for good.

As you can see, Cole really loves his pipe. He's even been braving the cold weather to smoke it outside. I love it when presents I buy are such a hit!

Thank You So Much for all the kind b-day wishes for Cole! He wanted me to tell you all "Thanks!" and I could tell he felt touched by all the love.:o So yesterday, was a bit stressful and we ended leaving last night for my parents' house which is about 45 minutes away. Plus, I didn't sleep at all last night since Wellie is sick again with a terrible choking cough, he couldn't breathe and it was scaring the bejesus out of me. I blame it on the cold weather. Anyway, it felt really nice to be able to take a hot shower this morning. I'll have to show you a snap of my new haircut tomorrow. I cut a couple inches off and its now a chin length bob. I like it- more dead and damaged ends gone.

OH, almost forgot! Since so many asked, I wanted to let you know that I bought Cole's vintage pipe on ebay. I found the brand I liked (Stanwell) on a pipe website and then searched ebay for a cheaper price. I lucked out by finding a vintage one that was un-smoked for a really good deal. He's already puffed on it a few times with some Dunhill Special tobacco.

Happy Saturday!

Yours,
Maria Sig 2

Happy Birthday Cole!

Today is my darling's 31st birthday! He knows how much I absolutely adore him, so I won't get all mushy, but will simply say...I Love You.
Happy Birthday Cole

Here's a little peek at the gifts I bought him...

Sorry for the delay...chosen by random.org, the winner of the Melie Bianco Violet handbag is Kate Olmstead. Thank you so much to everyone that entered and a big Thank You to the lovely people at Melie Bianco!

So if you follow my twitter you might have read that our water heater broke yesterday! It pretty much interrupted all plans of an iPhone Photo post and took over our afternoon and night. Today, I bathed myself out of a pot of hot water while standing in the shower. To put it mildly, it was not pleasant. I then attempted to wash my hair in the sink and made puddles all over the floor. Thank goodness, I'm going to the salon today for a haircut and will at least have my top half looking ok.

TGIF!

Yours,
Maria Sig 2

Ruche- A Garden Dream, Spring 2011

I just had to share this...Ruche has launched their second spring lookbook: A Garden Dream. Their lookbooks never cease to inspire me. I think that probably has to do with the beautiful locations, dreamy photography and lovely clothes. Plus, how bad do I want that plaid umbrella.

Look for a new iPhone Photo post tonight...hopefully!

Sponsor Spotlight: Softspoken

Being a quasi-creative person, I always find myself completely enraptured by individuals that can create lovely pieces with their own hands. Rachael is one such person. The items I picked from her shop, Softspoken, are so gorgeous that all I can think about are warm spring days spent in grassy fields with frolicking horses.

It was 67 degrees yesterday, a perfect day for a picnic. I'm hoping the weather stays this way from here on out and that this is the first of many enjoyable afternoons spent out of doors. iPhone Photos: Picnic

Here's a funny old polaroid that my mom found of me...

This was taken during the spring of my junior year of high school c.1998 and right around my 17th birthday. Two things that stand out: my really tan skin and freaky highlighted hair. :o

TGIF!
