Guys. I finally figured out how to do victory rolls! They're definitely not the best, but this was the first time I was able to create something that looked passable (every other time I've tried, I can get the first one and fail miserably at the second). I was bummed when I realized it was raining outside, and I thought my chances of documenting this feat were ruined... but then the sun miraculously came out for the last bit of daylight! I suppose it just goes to show that things have a way of working out in the end.
I don't wear this gorgeous dress from Tatyana very much (it's such a special piece), but one of the only good things about winter is that I can pull this out of my closet again. The neckline is probably my favorite part. I wore this dress last year on the blog, but my favorite styling of this dress has to be Ashley's recent post of the wiggle version!

I spent this past weekend in New York City with my mom, and we're coming back home today. I was glad to get out of town, even for just a few days, and we did lots of fun things! We saw A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder with my college roommate on Friday, went shopping and saw John Cameron Mitchell in Hedwig and the Angry Inch (the whole reason for the trip) on Saturday, and we're meeting up with some family to have tea at Alice's Tea Cup today before we leave for the airport. I'll have a post devoted to the trip soon, but suffice it to say that I've had a very nice last few days. :)
Hope your weekend was wonderful, too!
