As much as I love shopping... and clothes... I must admit, I have never been too enamored of warm weather fashion... With that said, it's obviously been a rather lackluster past few months...
Anthropologie to the rescue... this morning they delivered an enticing email highlighting their Fall fashions and this suede bomber jacket... and it's bye bye beach wear.
Of course, I bypass the jacket completely... and instead fixate on the funky little tutu skirt they paired it with... I see it with a sweet little black sweater... black opaque tights... black classic patent pumps... and me!

/art/...the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, Redemption!! I admit I may have been (muddled speak for "was") a day late and a dollar short when it came to advance notice of the Old West End Festival this year... but please note that I am a whole SIX days early on my reminder for the always amazing Ann Arbor Street Art Fair 2015 (thank you... thank you heavenly metal for my heads up email!)
It's everything you would expect from an art fair... and more...
it's an original, baby! A2 Art Fair 2015

I meant to post about the festival earlier as a save the date... but, as oftentimes happens, life got in the way of my best intentions. So, at this point, we're either way out on a commitment to your 2016 calendar... or just embarking on a good read... take it as you will...
The Old West End Festival is an amazingly fabulous annual outdoor weekend party... typically held the first weekend in June it encompasses all that is wonderful... shopping... live music... art... food... mansion tours... parades... lemonade stands. They have it all covered... and then some. Think Mardi Gras - Midwest. One year, I dragged home a chifferobe... the next year, just a bag of praline pecans. I came across an article that not only gives a nice festival overview, but includes a few other local gems as well... bonus! detroitdvotion.com
