What I’m Wearing
* Betsey Johnson rose print jersey dress …from GILT a while ago …seen here
* House of Harlow 1960 – Black Leather Station Necklace
* Salvatore Ferragamo bag
* Pour la Victoire studded peep to wedges …Courtesy of Pour la Victoire
* Tom Ford Sunglasses – Anouk
* Hair: air-dried again …I’ve been lazy
* Title: Lyrics from Tori Amos’ Caught a Lite Sneeze …my favorite of hers though strangely enough I like the album version better than her live versions. When I was 19 I worked at the Hard Rock Cafe at City Walk as a server and this song was in the music rotation and it would make my night when it came on. It always reminds me of that now.

I’ve been putting off going to the dermatologist since my dad died in 2003 from skin cancer. I know it’s the exact opposite of what you’re supposed to do but I was entirely too freaked out to even face it. However, yesterday, with my husband’s help I went to see one for the first time in my life and I was beyond nervous. OMG I’m such a baby. I had the full body inspection and as he pointed out all my moles being similar in color and completely normal he stumbled upon an almost black little guy the side of my lower leg {a very common spot for women apparently} …and then promptly whipped out his numbing device and razor blade and sliced it right off. I have to go back in three weeks to make sure it’s not cancerous but other than that I’m a-okay. I’m just so happy I finally did it. And I’m even happier that it’s over …but mostly I’m so happy that this very stressful week is over. It’s been a rough one for us so yay. Let’s celebrate!

    Hey Maegs, this should be captioned “L.A. Confidential.” You always remind me of Kim Basinger, at the peak of her beauty and fame, especially in this outfit. You always look completely natural, and it never looks like you’re trying too hard. Wish more L.A. women would take some style pointers from you. 😉

    I think this is my favorite thing you’ve ever worn. It fits you like a dream and the shoes are perfection with the dress. I think I would kill for your legs if that was an option.

    I hope you have a fantabulous weekend!

    My little sister is a Melanoma survivor so I’ve been religious about my skin checks. I’ve had so much sliced and diced it’s crazy. I did have one on the back of my calf and I didn’t like the color — very black. It came back abnormal/pre-cancerous. So I went back and had a larger margin taken. I’ve got scars everywhere, but it’s worth it to live. So glad you’re getting checked. Due to family history, I go every 6 months. You might want to consider getting on a frequent schedule too. Early detection is key! Sorry to get on a soapbox, but it is sooooo important.

    1) LOVE those shoes, and
    2) Good job on getting ourself to the dermatologist! I know it’s scary but it’s necessary, especially for sun-loving babes! I go to the derm regularly but I had to finally ASK for a entire body skin check. It’s always better to be safe than sorry. So again, well done!

    Have a great weekend!

    YOU think SHE is a circus side show act?
