I Heart Yelle.

Check out Yelle, my newest music fixation. This is "A Cause Des Garcons," which translates to "because of the guys."

She makes me wanna dance. Love it. And can't wait to see her in D.C. this fall!

So, I'm kinda-sorta really into this DJ named Diplo. I've seen him twice in Baltimore and will be seeing him in November at Black Cat. Here's a clip from his show at Paradox that I was at; drinks in tow. The sound quality sucks, but what'd ya gunna do?

Diplo's "Shake It Over, Over"

Diplo's "Wes Remix"

10 Ways to Be an Even Better Friend

I stumbled upon this article today on ten ways to be an even better friend, because nobody is the perfect friend. Especially me!

1. Gossip, yes, but don't get mean. She'll wonder whether you're talking that way about her to everyone else.

2. If she's got a poppy seed in her teeth, mascara under her eyes or deodorant on her sweater, tell her.

3. Do not ̶ repeat, do not ̶ side with her mother.

4. If she's crazy about him, pretend he's your brother and never date him. Ever.

5. Have that scary fight about how she's been bugging you. If you can go there for a guy, you can for her, too.

6. Keep her ring size filed away in case you-know-who calls for advice about you-know-what.

7. Oh, just wear the bridesmaid's dress.

8. See straight through her attempts at cool perfection and love her more for the weaknesses she's trying to hide.

9. Remind her that she wasn't that into him, either.

10. When the guy dumps her, the cat gets cancer, the job explodes, simply be there.

This post is dedicated to Marley; an amazing friend who practically wrote the book on friendship and who I love to Reeses Pieces!

(Fantasy) Birthday Wish List

Birthdays are fun. And so are (fantasy) birthday wish lists.

As always, my favorite dress
designer, Betsey Johnson, delivers.

Hanging lamp from Ikea. Hot.

Chandelier wall decal from Urban Outfitters. Cheeky.

Normally I wouldn't be going ga-ga over an Ikea mass-
produced print but I love, love, love this.

Behold! The Marc Jacbos "Mary" Bag. Usually the only
thing I like quilted is Chanel but I have been converted.

Update: I bought the Audrey print and the lamp. I'm naughty!

Wish List Part 234,053

"Lemon Poppyseed Dress." Beautiful buttery-lemon color.

"Cocktails at Lunch Dress." The name pretty much says it all.

If you're into fashion with a vintage-twist like I am, then Mod Cloth is right up your ally. Their dresses in particular! I am basically loving these two dresses.

Must. Have. Them.
