popsicle

the only thing that induced me to leave my air-conditioned apartment and venture out into the stifling heat last sunday was a desperate need for an ice cream scoop. i have a drawer full of bent spoons from trying to coax out hardened sorbet straight from the freezer without first waiting for it to soften.

it was fitting then that i chose a dress which kind of reminds me of an orange popsicle... at least it's a refreshing thought?

i only had about 30 minutes before a thunderstorm was predicted to start, so i rushed to the nearest kitchen supply store which happens to be Williams-Sonoma. i ended up dropping $27 bucks on an ice cream scoop! whatever. it is made in Italy and they scoop tons of gelati and sorbetto over there so they know what they're doing - it should last me a lifetime of summers, right?

then it was back home straight away for some heaping scoops of Ciao Bella sorbet, and no more bent spoons...

  5. Mm I really adore this shade of orange- same as monk robes. A brilliant striking orange. Also reminds me of the Central Park "gates" from years ago that I loved. Anyway it suits you so well! I am also looking for a good maxi dress, but mine will be black, I'm afraid.

  6. owww lady love that color on you. I need to tan first before even thinking about such lush colors like that. great touch with the belt too, takes something so dressy and lux and makes it casual and fun.
