The Velvet Underground

Happy Tuesday from Australia, love bugs. I hope you all had an amazing weekend. My weekend was busy, busy, busy. Lovely times filled with good wine, good friends, delicious cakes and hot wings. I had a birthday party on Sunday night, and I hosted a goodbye party (I was so stressed about it - but it turned out great!) last night for my room mate Heather and her lovely husband-to-be. Such a good weekend! What did you guys do?

This is one of my favorite dresses, ever. About 6 months I became obsessed with velvet. I dreamed of my entire closet being filled with velvet. I wanted velvet booties, capes, jackets, cardigans, pants, tights, shorts. You name it. The perfect item from 'velvet world' never came to me though - but all good things come to those who wait, and here it is, my favorite delightful velvet black dress.

I have loved reading all of your super sweet comments about the ship tour that I am going on. You girls are so lovely. I am getting so excited about it. Its definitely not going to be a luxury cruise, and my packing and space is very small, so its going to be interesting - but its all part of the adventure, true? Hope you girls are having a good start to your week. I did a workout video at the crack of dawn this morning by Jillian Michaels. Man, that girl sure puts you to work! Walking back to my house this morning was almost torture, I felt like my legs were going to break off. Its SUCH a good feeling though to work out in the morning. I need to do it more! I recommend you check out her video...its a good one! :)

  8. such a lovely dress! I love it when I'm sore from a workout, it feels like I did something really good for my body! I USED to be able to run a lot but not no more. One of my goals this summer is to get back on track!

  11. Gosh I love that dress! Velvet really is amazing, too bad it's only cold enough to wear it for about a month here..but that's okay because my Christmas dress was velvet and it was lovely!

  13. Aw, cute girl, I'm sad you're leaving!

    What Jillian video did you do this morning?
    My mom, sister and I are HOOKED on the 30-Day Shred; seriously, it's like our special cult or something. Ha ha. But even her short mini-workout youtube videos kill. She's such a beast.

    Anyway, have a good Thursday, miss Kate!

  23. Velvet... luxurious! Like the dress. Remember when velvet was hip in middle school? Velvet and racer stripes. (Yikes)

    I'm hosting a giveaway for a pair of vintage shoes right now... if you're a size 7, you should stop by! If you're not, we have an extra offer as well. :)

    Be well! God bless!
