Have you ever noticed that Disney movie villains have the best songs? Think about it -- Scar's "Be Prepared" in The Lion King and Ursala's "Poor Unfortunate Souls" in The Little Mermaid? Both amazing. I watched Tangled recently and now Lady Gothel's song, "Mother Knows Best," is stuck in my head.

These are the types of pressing issues that I concern myself over.

I had an awesome Valentine's Day yesterday, reading over some hilariously corny jokes from my giveaway submissions and coming home to flowers and chocolate-covered strawberries from Boyfriend. He's a keeper!

As part of my gift to Boyfriend, I made one of his favorites: lettuce wraps.

These are a modified version of this turkey lettuce wrap recipe from Steamy Kitchen. I substituted apples with water chestnuts and made 3x the amount of sauce. I highly recommend it!

And finally, the OOTD:

striped dress, modcloth [x] [x-ish] [x-ish]
always cardigan, j.crew
leatherette belt, f21
berry bush tights, anthropologie
kinnetic flats, steve madden
half-slip, anthropologie
heart pave ring, coach
gold bangle, kate spade

Thanks again to the commenter who recommended this half-slip from Anthropologie! I completely forgot what it was called, but it is perfect for adding some much-needed length to my way-too-short-seriously-who-can-wear-this items from Modcloth and F21.

I wanted to brag about all the sweet treats I got from my Valentine's Day swap partner (organized by Tippy) and from Lisa, but apparently I forgot to upload the photos onto Photobucket last night. This is my expression right now:


Oh well. Tomorrow!

  4. Awww ^^ That's muy sweet. I got some fantastic v-day treats to satisfy my sweet tooth too, nom! Best v day ever!

  5. Omg! Lol, do you know that I never used to want anyone going through my ipod list because I had an insanely ridiculous number of disney songs. I have been obsessed with "Be Prepared" for as long as I can remember, and still am...lol..ok onto your OOTD. Love it! Looks fabulous on you! I may also try the lettuce wrap you made. Looks delicious! :)

  6. <3 this. And you are totally right about the Disney Songs. Evil anthems get me pumped!

  7. I love this outfit! I am so loving stripes lately, anything striped!! You look really pretty.

  8. Gah! Those shoes are so wonderful! I love (almost) anything sparkly and those are bombtastic! :) Your ring is also really pretty.
    I never thought about adding a half slip to a dress if it was too short, but that's a great idea! My aunt also likes to add lace to the end of her dresses if they turn out to be too short, and they look great as well.
    I am going to have to try those lettuce wraps. They look so yummy!
