Black and White

Thursday, January 31, 2013



Hey all! Hope your week has been going great. I've been busy with school and working, still fighting those winter blues but hoping to get out of the funk soon. One thing that has been helping is the magic of black and white. I know, I know, it's really a no brainer. These colors have gone together since the beginning of time and it really never goes out of style. This Spring though will have a little more clarity with stark contrasts of graphics and patterns. Inspiration from the 1950s and 60s bring looks full circle.

Have a great day!

Friday Favorites - A Touch of Class

Friday, January 25, 2013
So Minnesota weather has been super cold over the last couple weeks. While everyone has been either been sick or is still battling a cold, I've been having a case of the winter blues. I tend to always get this way each year, it's gotten better since high school but I still battle it off and on. So I figure what better way to get out of these doldrums than a great post with some classy images? I'm sitting here listening to the Dario Marianelli station on Pandora, and it always seems to lift my spirt. Especially since the 'Pride & Prejudice' soundtrack pops up every so often.
But back to some more of my Friday Favorites! These will definitely help me get through the weekend, and I hope they will for you also!

Just a quick note, this entire collection took my breath away. He always just seems to create the most spectacular gowns that could be seen in a fairytale. I will never not love anything he creates. So special, and what a dream it would be to wear one of his creations.
I'd get out of the Winter blues quickly if I woke up in this bed.
And to end on this positive note, I hope you all have a great weekend!
Always, Mostly Lisa

Happy 2013! I can't believe another year has gone past, and things are still going so well. Tons of things happened last year for me, and I hope this year will continue what I started working on. Keeping my fingers crossed for good things. I recently had surgery for a cyst to be removed in all places, the bellybutton, but it went well and I'm now fully recovered. Damn things itches though. I am slowly trying to work on updating my blog design and hopefully make it more presentable. So bear with me while things change. Even trying to find out if my I can change my blog domain name. Should be interesting.

For a start to the year, here is a little inspiration post. Images I've found through Tumblr and other sites. Give me good feels. Plus, I've entered a contest on ModCloth where you can win a YEAR full of dresses. So if any of you want to vote for me, I'd really appreciate that.

Have a great weekend everyone!
