cupcake confessions

everyday for the past few weeks i have had to consume a cupcake. not sure what's come over me. it's like i HAVE to have one. sunday night i hit starbucks on dupont circle at 8:02pm, only to have it close at 8pm. i was traumatized, pulling on the door, trying puppy eyes with the man behind the counter, basically begging - nada. i walked home defeated sans cupcake.

in addition to cupcakes, i've been consuming a lot of soy chai lattes. a diet of cupcakes (who cares about the cake, i just like the top!) and soy chai lattes is not enough to sustain. beau made me a salad tonight so that i could mix in some greens!

attached is a mention of TranquiliT in the latest issue of bust magazine. yay for eco-friendly and fabulous clothing! speaking of which, i carved out 2 hours of creative time this morning and after piddling for an hour, i got down to it. began pondering fall designs. colors are chosen: cranberry, slate, noir, au naturel. i know, i know, who's thinking of fall fashion when we haven't even donned spring yet? since my seamstress will be out for a couple of months late summer as a new mama, it's time to get fall planned. i mulled the ideas over later with my darling assistant and i think we've got a good plan lined up. if you have any special requests, do tell!

took 2 hours off tonight to watch the hours with beau. such a solemn flick. gotta do some lighting research. promised my contractor i'd have sconce decisions for him in the morning! our new home on 17th street continues to evolve.

I heart BUST magazine (and Debbie Stoller, who also wrote the Stitch N Bitch books).

LOVE soy chai lattes - at least you can get them non-fat!
Slate and cranberry for fall - yay!!!!! Can't wait - can you offer more long sleeve tops and some gaucho type pants (I know gauchos are no longer 'in' but that look can be so flattering) and roll-down waist bands - they are the best! I love the pair of tranquilit pants that I have with that waist band.
Looking forward to it and I can't wait to get a piece or two for spring in those beautiful colors.
Have a wonderful week with or without cupcakes!

Those colors sound fab for fall!!

I'd love to see a long cardishawl that covers the bum, to snuggle up in when the weather cools down again!

I second the slate and cranberry yay and the longer cardi shawl for fall (poetry ;) )

Can you incorporate some long length yoga pants into your designs? I love the styles you have now, but they look like floods on me! :)

At a certain time of the month ;), I tend to crave things like cupcakes, too. I figure my body must be deficient in sugary baked goods, so why fight it?

Cupcakes are good for inner peace. :)

Love the new shortsleeve wrap dress, too!

Mmmm, cupcakes! I would also love more leopard and a cardishawl would be great! And congrats to you for the pic in this month's Washingtonian! You and Louis looked wonderful!
