The Pretty Life Girls: Down. With. Monday.

Down. With. Monday.

Monday, February 28, 2011

It's Monday, folks. And I mean it's REALLY Monday.

I just worked for like an hour on a sassy little post with outfits and collages and witty commentary and life altering fashion genius {ok, no, nothing life altering or genius really, but I thought it was pretty good}, and just as I was going to post there was some sort of computer freezing problem, Windows told me it was closing everything, and my post got sucked into internet oblivion.

I said bad words. Loudly.

As a result, I now give you a second-rate, hodgepodge post, consisting of the following:

1. My favorite Oscar dresses:

Feathers! Sparkles! Those arms! Amazing.

I would kill for that pony tail. Serious.

As a person, she's not my fav but this dress is fab.
If I were to go to the Oscars I would want to wear red.
And be Sandra Bullock.

My favorite. {What were yours?}

2. What I'm wearing today {which I really don't want to post after the Oscar dresses since it is neither red, nor sparkly, nor does it have a train. Oh well.}:

Dress: Old Navy $6.99, Cardigan: Target $9.99, Belt F21 $2.99, Tights: Khols $5.00, Boots: GoJane $11.99

3. And the winner of our houndstooth giveaway:

So, yes, that is my post today. Not my best work, but like I said, Monday, post-eating computer, etc.

Don't worry, I have big plans to show this Monday who's boss and come out triumphant maybe on Wednesday or something. After all, with a little Diet Coke, and a little Bachelor watching tonight, anything is possible.

Happy show-Monday-who's-boss day!


PS. Congratulations to Rachel! Email us at and we will get you your prize! Thanks to all who entered!! 


  1. the best part of icky mondays is that the week can only get better. And yes, diet coke can fix most Monday doldrums :-)

  2. Congrats Rachel! My favourite dress is Halle's one as well, she looks stunning!

    Love the khaki/brown combo of your outfit x

  3. It's a very Monday of Mondays. That's why I'm currently drinking a Diet Coke. Even though her look wasn't necesarily my absolute favorite, props have to go to Natalie Portman for looking so killer when she's a bajillion months pregnant.

    North Meets South
