These dresses are dangerous! Found through shopmyclosetblog, Grey Ant has some fancy stuff. I would love to wear one of these for a New Year's Eve Party, wouldn't you?

Chicago Views

Since there was a record high of 62 degrees in Chicago tonight, my sister had a bbq at her new condo in the city. What amazing views there were from the 25th floor!Also, this is my new camera, which has the most ideal setting for night photos, which I'm pretty excited about. Thank you to my Astoria-gentleman friend :)

Vintage Desk

Ooph my Craigslist addiction has started again. I thought I had kicked my habit of perusing this site for hours in search of vintage furniture I can't afford, and might not even need, but no, I'm back at it. How beautiful is this desk? For $200...those handles...those legs...I love it!

Happy New Year!

I've resolved to do more cultural things in 2008. I'm going to start with the Art Institute in Chicago, which is currently exhibiting Girls on the Verge: Adolescence, a collection of photography portraying girls in those awkward years.--"Adolescent girls find themselves on the cusp between girl and woman, child and adult. It is a time of physical and emotional changes, of yearning for freedom while secretly cherishing constraints, of finding the pleasures as well as the terrors of one’s own appeal to the world."--
Reading the description of this exhibit got me thinking...The early-mid 20's are a lot like adolescence aren't they?

Resolution #2: Make it through my 2nd adolescence with more grace and less drama than my 1st.
