Darlings, Can you feel the excitement in the air? There’s something stirring this spring and it’s not just the birds chirping or the bees buzzing. Fashion’s biggest night out, the Met Gala, always takes place the first Monday in May, and it’s right around the corner.
It’s a red carpet fashion lovers dream come true.

Dear Brittany & Jessie, Part of me wants to say you’re rude and shallow, while another part of me thinks the difficulty our culture has with aging is because of people like you. Who are you to mock the way Sarah Jessica Parker looked at Monday night’s Met Gala with mean girl tweets like “she is aging faster than spoiled Greek yogurt,” “horses have a life span of 20-30 years so she is definitely blessed to still be with us” and “she’s aging like a bad raisin”?
Has it even occurred to you that you’ve shamed all women for the privilege of living and breathing and getting older?
I can’t click on a fashion blog without seeing fall capes. They are one of the hottest trends this season and for good reason. They are versatile and can be worn with pants or dresses. They are so easy to throw on and for me, I love the ease of being able to quickly take them off in the car. They keep you warm, but free up your arms, and you don’t have the bulk of a coat. It’s a nice way to ease into the winter wardrobe! Following are a collection of trendy capes found around the web.
