Femme Dandy

Tuesday, January 31, 2017 4:30 AM

Good morning lovelies! 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. 
My dad was admitted back into the hospital on Friday, then later in the weekend released. They have treated him for a UTI, so hopefully he will finally be on the mend.

I am STILL battling the throat/ head cold/ chest illness. Seems it just wants to make it's way through my entire body and stick around for a while. 

My sister in law and I took the kids to see 'A Dogs Purpose'. Ok... It was a great movie, the kids loved it. If you have ever seen 'My Dog Skip' or "Marley and Me' and cried, this movie will leave you sniveling under mound of tissues.  To say I couldn't get it together would be an understatement.  We had to stay about ten minutes after it was over in order to collect ourselves.  Again, great movie, but you may want to wait until it is on demand so you can sob in the privacy of your own home.       

Onto this look...
I have always been loved femme dandy style, the juxtaposition of masculine and feminine work so well.  Stars such as Marlene Dietrich, Katherine Hepburn, Diane Keaton and Madonna have all rocked this style. It is a fun way to look and feel powerful and still very sexy.
