While in London, E. and I visited Kensington Palace to William-and-Kate-stalk, as well as to see the Fashion Rules exhibition featuring clothing of famous Kensington Palace residents Princess Diana and Princess Margaret. It was a Jolie dream.
For years, I didn’t care about fashion. I’d be rocking smokey eyes and edgy mullets until the cows came home, but when it came to my style sense, I essentially had none.

Enter Wacoal…
I went to Bloomingdale’s today and made the catastrophic error of wandering by the Ted Baker section. Big mistake. Huge. But I’m oh so happy I did!
