ModCloth Wish List

I love ModCloth.

You guys already know this about me, so that's not really news.

I check the site multiple times a day to view the newest frocks, vote in their amazing Be the Buyer program, and add even more into my shopping cart. I have a wish list that's 5 pages long and counting. In my head I already own all of these items and I imagine all the fabulous places I'll go and things I'll do while I'm wearing a dress picked directly from my fantasy wardrobe.
I mean LOOK at these shoes! I die.

Believe it or not - and let's be honest, this is a big, fat NOT - summer is already drawing to a close. And while I'm enjoying soaking up every ray of sunshine my pale porcelain skin can handle, I've got one eye on the fall fashions and my (fantasy) fall wardrobe.

Fall is my favorite season by far. There's something romantic about a warm, sunny day that turns into a breezy afternoon and ends in a chilly evening snuggled on the couch with someone special. I love the leaves, the smells, the colors, the textures. Everything. And I want my wardrobe to reflect all of that. So here are some of the pieces in my dream wardrobe from ModCloth that I will own one day.
On a warmer day, paired with skinny jeans and ballet flats.

Imagine this one with a red cardigan, grey tights and my grey Mary Janes with the little bows on them.

Chocolate tights, nude pumps and this necklace:
And how pretty and romantic is this shirt?

I want to go apple picking and pair this dress...
With dark tights and these amazing boots:

This one...With a long, soft cardigan and gold flats.

This amazing motorcycle jacket (I am dying over the color!), over this feminine and flowy dress.

Can't you see it with long, gold rope necklaces and dark brown booties?

This gorgeous sweater dress paired with tights and calf-high boots for brunch, shopping and an afternoon curled up with a wonderful book.

How perfect for cocktails out with the girls, right?
Hair pulled up, sparkly earrings, sparkly shoes. Perfect.

Paired with a black turtle neck and black shiny patent leather pumps.
Hellooooo, Joan Halloway!

I just love the simplicity of this these little cream dress. It's just Pretty.
Yes, with a capital P.
And these. I mean.. I just.. Come on, it's not even fair.

Alright, spill. Which fall fashions do you have your eye (and heart set) on?

Food Trucks

Food trucks. They're all the rage these days, no?

Lucky for me, there is a spot reserved speficially for food trucks right outside the building where I work. The other day I decided it was high time I check it out, and boy am I glad I did!

This colorful little vehicle de cuisine was blasting some great raggae/island music and has an impressive menu of sea food themed dishes. As I scanned my eyes down the menu, I suddenly saw:

It was like that scene in the movie where the record stops abruptly and everyone at the party whips their heads around to stare. Spiedies. Spiedies?!

For those who need a refresher, I'll direct you here.

The minute I got up to the window I asked the man where he was from. He grew up in Binghamton! The people in line behind me laughed out loud as I yelped out an emphatic, "ME TOO!" We chit-chatted a bit. He told me he was thinking of making just a spiedie truck. A whole TRUCK that serves ONLY spiedies. Helloooo?!

Delicious! A little taste of home right here in the heart of Boston. He souped them up a little bit by adding a cucumber and red onion relish on top of the spiedies. Honestly, as good as it was, I could have done without it. There's nothing better than the plain, old fashioned original.

I also went back the next day for the fish & chips (to die for!) and a lemonade. YUMMO.

Any great food trucks in your area that you'd recommend?

I've been gone a long time. I'm sorry. If you read my blog, then you know that sometimes I do that. I disappear for a little while. It doesn't meant I don't love you anymore. It just means that I'm staying true to the one guideline I gave myself when I started the blog:

"Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you,
say what you've got to say, and say it hot."

I have had a kind of crazy couple months. I haven't felt moved to write and share the inner workings of my brain lately. And I know that would definitely come across in my writing. I don't want to bore you with half-hearted posts. You deserve better than that.

So, for anyone out there who may be waiting with baited breath for my next post, I'm back. It's so nice to see you again.
