Bits and Pieces

by Jodifur on January 31, 2012

Thank you so much for all your comments and emails regarding yesterday’s post.  I say this a lot, but I have the BEST, most caring, amazing readers on the planet.  I have somehow built a little community here on jodifur and you all mean more to me than you could ever know.  Michael is fine, great really, and the phone call I made turned out to be a wonderful thing.  He is going to be even better very soon.

I leave on vacation in two weeks and I have a problem.  I always shop like crazy before a vacation.  I feel like vacation is just an excuse to buy new clothes.  Tell me I’m not the only one who has this problem.  I’m home sick today AND we are getting a new furnace and it turns out that is the loudest thing on the planet.  I can’t watch tv.  I can’t think.  So I’m stuck internet shopping.

I actually bought a dress I pinned on pinterest months ago.  I really believe I should get an award for that.

How awesome is this?

I bought it for one of the “smart casual” nights on my cruise.  Apparently smart casual really means semi-formal, in which men wear suits and ties and girls wear fancy dresses.  I have no idea on what planet “smart casual” involves suits and ties. But it is not formal, because we have those nights too. And luggage restrictions on airlines.

Speaking of my trip, if anyone is interested in guest posting on jodifur while I am gone email me at jodi@lucidphoenix.com.  I would need all posts by February 15th. Also, I am in desperate need of shoes for shoe friday. #saveshoefriday.

I am in love with that dress! SO PRETTY!
And yes, I totally use vacations (or work trips) as excuses to buy new things. You can’t take old WORN clothing on a fancy vacation! That’s just crazy!

LOVE that dress. And love that you are going on vacation soon! We are on vacation right now (in the Caymans) and I am in bliss. In some ways, the build up to it is the best part!

We’re going on a cruise this month too! On the 18th.
And we never dress in semi-formal on smart casual nights. We actually probably dress semi-formal on formal nights. And rather “neat” casual the other nights.

The dress is adorable! Add some sky-high black peep-toe pumps, a small string of pearls and a cat eye and you’re good to go!
Would this help for Shoe Friday? http://followgram.me/hipmom/515225977_4593762
