First up, a burgundy dress. I had a dress similar to this one a few years ago which I foolishly donated. Second chance dress here!
I also bought a shirtdress, which does look better in person -- but because of the flimsy material and the fit being a little big, I think it is best to get it altered. Otherwise I am swimming! Tall Girl sizes are hard to get right sometimes.
I have recently embraced polka dots, first with my navy Lauren dress and now with this pin-up style swimsuit:
The swimsuits are quite classic in my new Hollywood Poolside book, which I bought at Paramount Studios in LA:
I had to buy a Hollywood top so I can California Dream whenever I want. I bought it at that "Everything is Under $10!!!" store on Hollywood Boulevard, or whatever its called:
My Let's Go! LA outfit (like The Cars song...oh yes we blared that tune in LA too!):

I wore it to the Gaslamp District one night, however we did not venture inside The Tipsy Crow. We already have a 'Crow and Hen' Pub (my pet name for it) where we live.
I haven't come across a satisfactory tangerine or coral dress yet, but I have bought these two tops to get me started with that colour palette:
How is your week going? I can't stop thinking about the last Sunday's Mad Men episode!
