Kid N Play on Lopez Tonight

My site is more or less done being revamped. I've been so busy fiddling with it and fiddling with my own life, I haven't had time to post! But I'm back, and things should be pretty consistent from now on.

I've always loved Kid N Play and the silly fun of the House Party movies. So I was so excited to see they were on Lopez Tonight! They're touring the U.S. to celebrate the 20th anniversary of House Party. Twenty years already? That makes me feel old.

Under Construction

I've been looking a lot of the other blogs and I'm starting to feel embarrassed about my layout, plus I'm over the purple. So I'm going to fiddling with the look and feel but not posting much. But for your viewing pleasure, here's this lovely comment from the people over at ModCloth about my dress! I'm so proud of myself and I had to share!

Wax on, F*ck Off, Starring Ralph Macchio of The Karate Kid

Hilarious Funny or Die video I found on Trapped in the 80s Mom. You gotta love an actor who can make fun of himself and the sometimes sickening culture of celebrities behaving badly.

Retrofit: Perfect Dress for a Picnic

I've long lusted after the lovely clothes on ModCloth and now I've finally picked up a dress of my very own. Behold, the Soda Fountain Dress in ginger.

Belt, Rainbow
Shoes, Anne Klein

It's a basic shirtwaist dress, made of light cotton and the color is great (I was a little worried about that when I ordered it).The dress comes with its own cotton belt in the same color of the dress, but I though a cinch belt would be smarter. It's a great dress for during the day. I'd recommend thinking about your boobs when your order this; I'm admittedly a bit top-heavy (I'm not very wide but I'm a 34DD), and even with a minimizing bra on, I had some pulling in the chest. Commenters on ModCloth complained about the same thing. I'll either look into a different bra or get it altered a bit. Remember, when it arrives in the mail, it will be horribly wrinkled, so use some starch when you iron it. I didn't, and it was wrinkled again within minutes. Still, it's a great buy! I might even get the same dress in black.
