Longing for Spring and Loving Tory Burch

I want this dress. I want to wear it on Cote d'Azur while eating a gelato with the wind blowing through my hair...well not really, because chances are I would have my hair in a ponytail so the wind could not technically blow through it, but it is hard to make a pony tail sound all sexy in the wind on the French Riviera , but you know what I mean..I digress.

It is cold, gray and snowy and miserable in my neck of the woods today. This dress sings to me of sunshine and beaches and all warm and happy things. It is fun and flowy and beautiful. The dress is the Lila by Tory Burch, whom quite honestly I am falling in love with. Not with her personally, but with all things Tory. I love her shop in NYC, I love her clothes, and I LOVE that she is so awesome that Guerlain fashioned a bottle of their famed Vetiver just for her. Can you imagine?? Guerlain making you your own bottle design with one of their famous fragrances inside? That is so damn cool! Tory once said she only wears Guerlain Vetiver because that is what her father and brothers always wear.

I am loving her whole "pre spring" line. On the TORY BURCH WEBSITE she says that the line was inspired by a book called "A Place in the Sun" and by the famed artist Frida Kahlo. What an interesting mix of inspriration. Most of the line looks like a summer vacation to me. I want it all!

I am also loving the simple artistry of this top.

This is the Tory Burch Grace top. I am a sucker for a crisp white shirt and this one is interesting with the ruffles and the polka dots. Perfect for spring and summer. According to my 92 year old Grandma (Hazel)- Polka dots are really gonna be in this summer. You heard it first here folks. Hazel said so.

Next time you are in New York City, stop by and give Tory's store a look. It is located at

257 Elizabeth Street

New York, New York

There are many more wonderful things in the store that you cannot find on the website.

Have a beautiful day!

Hi Green Eyes--
I know, right? Tory's clothes and shoes are gorgeous!

Hi Gretchen-
I think I may have to cave. It is just so fun. Hope you are doing great!

Hello C-
You know Hazel knows what is up. Thanks for the kind words, but the figure has the winter blahs and I need to get my butt back to the gym. How are you doing on the "NO COKE" thing? Hugs to you!

Hi R-
How are you pretty lady?
I'm a liking too--tee hee hee.
I think I may have to get that dress for myself for Valentines Day. You know after being married so long you have to kind of treat yourself on V-day!

Lovely day to all!
