Unfortunately, I don't see myself going to any red carpet events in the near future, so Timeless Vixen Vintage has done it again--they've gotten me to waste half an hour drooling over a dress that I don't need. And when I say I don't need it, I really mean it this time. I was just 60s retro for Halloween and doing it again the next year would be lame. None of my friends are getting married soon so I don't need it for a wedding. The only charity I give to has really casual events and this (amazing as it is) would make people think I was recovering from a head injury. Gaah! I have NO REASON to buy it.
Tell me I'm doing the right thing. It's pure foolishness to buy a $300 dress for no reason, right? Right?!

Epic fail, NBC.
If you're grumpy about this, too, and want to read more, my husband sent me a good article earlier. Clickity-click!
ModCloth is having a Cabin Fever sale! A (gigantic) selection of items are 70% off, so here's your chance to snag some deals. The stuff is selling fast--the dress I wanted sold out before I could get my wallet--so you might want to work on your quick reflexes if you're planning on some retail therapy. And if nothing left in the sale tickles your fancy, their regular-priced items are worth a look, too.

This is today's shirt over at TeeFury. And I think they're probably calling Bella the mope, as opposed to Kristen, but I think it works for either gal.
Let's have a look at the closeup, shall we?
It has everybody's favorite lip bite AND a tiny broken heart in the upper left corner!
If you want to snap one up for yourself, it'll only cost you $9. The downside is that TeeFury reveals a new shirt every 24 hours, so you need to order today--as in, before midnight Eastern time.
I won't keep you any longer; get your mope on.

I got home from work and smelled gas in our entryway. My husband said it had been that way for a few hours and that the handyman for our complex come by and said nothing was wrong. To which I said, "If nothing is wrong then why do I SMELL GAS?" I started to get sick, and the smell got worse, so we called the fire department. Turns out, the empty unit across the hall had the leak, and it had built up so much that the fumes were creeping over to us. Some cleaning or repair person had been working on it and messed up the connection to the range. Awesome!
Anyway, we had to skedaddle while they aired everything out. The wind chill was below zero again, so today I find myself in the mood to look at coats! Victoria's Secret has some lovely ones on clearance:
Left to right: the grey A-line is now $59.99, the plaid is $64.99, and the classic wool trench is also $59.99. I'm kind of eye-balling the grey one, but I think Chicago wind would blow right in there. Shame.
On a totally unrelated note, the firefighters from last night were very nice. If any of them harbor a secret love of bargains and ever stumble upon this: thank you! We appreciated your help.
Anybody else ever had a gas leak?

LOVE. Love, love, love. In fact, I love it so much that I wish time machines really worked so I could go back and get married again. Or I could just convince my husband that we need to renew our vows at the one-year mark. Whichever.
It's from David's Bridal, and considering all of its exquisite glory, it's only $850. I actually read somewhere that the average wedding dress is about $1100, so you'd beat the curve with this one. And look damn good doing it. (Seriously, I WANT THAT.)
You can win them by heading over to Bride on a Budget. The contest ends at 5 pm eastern on Sunday. And by the way, BoaB was just named one of the 100 top wedding blogs (and/or Twitter accounts) by BrideTide.com, so you know girlfriend has some good stuff over there. If you're going for the win, good luck!
(I'm tossing around the idea of doing a giveaway here, too. I'll keep you posted.)
