Marianne: It's Friday and I want things.

Ah, Friday. It holds all the promise of the weekend but you have to GET THROUGH IT without killing anyone. I need to distract myself with some pretty.

My hair is too long to wear jaunty hats like this, but I love this model's perfect pink lips and eyeliner.
Kate Spade hurts my feelings. I can't explain it, but I always feel like the prices are going to fall more along the lines of J.Crew, a bit expensive but not out of the question. But even on sale, I can't afford it. This entire outfit is divine and I want to try and recreate it. Well, minus the scarf. I might act crazy but I try not to look crazy.
I also loved this outfit to pieces on first glance. So springy and cheerful and fun! I already played with fixing my hair like this, even. But then I took a closer look at the coat, just to torture myself.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Betty Draper wear something just like this when she was pregnant on Mad Men? Seeing it all buttoned up took this out of the "fun and springy" category and put it in the "twee and infantilizing" column.
Lastly, the perfect little sweater dress I looked for all winter, an now that I've found it I don't want to buy it, even though it's cheap. Please feel free to throw something sticky at me come fall when I am once again bemoaning my lack of perfect little sweater dresses, okay?
