I'd Rather Be a Girl!

Yesterday, via Dust Jacket Attic I was introduced to a lovely designer, Katie Ermilio.
Her fashions are so fresh and so lovely.

I especially love the color play on this outfit. I think I would like to try this with a top and pants.

 Everything is just dripping with femininity. These are the types of clothes that make me happy to be a girl!!

 I love the back sweep of the overskirt. It's detachable. A great idea.

 The lovely cut of an open back.
To see a better picture of this dress, go to Katie Ermilio's website and click on collections. This dress has a lovely piece of peekaboo jewelry in the opening of the back. Wow!
The photographer of these lovely confections is Jamie Beck. You can check out her website here.

Maybe this is in bad taste, so forgive me, but my husband, of all people, sent the following to me. This does not make me jealous in the least bit. I would far rather be able to wear pretty dresses as pictured above than have the following opportunities. Hope it brings a little light to your day.

Men Are Just Happier People

If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.
If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Bubba and Wildman.

When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50.
None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.
When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.

A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.
The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337.
A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.

A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.

A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.

Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances,
best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.


A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!

  1. Rhonda.....I love all! Don't know who wrote this, but he/she was genius!.....Lydia

  2. I love the dresses and had 'Pinned' them on my board yesterday. But your 'male comments' really made me smile and though I was happily married for 30 years, these are just a few of the reasons why I chose not to do it again!

  3. Yes my DH has this next to the computer :) Gorgeous dresses by the way.

  4. Soooooooooo funny! Thanks for posting that today!
    Love your blog and what you make...and thank you for 'free pattern Friday'. I'm going to make the 'all points skirt'.

  5. The dresses are such eye candy. Wish I had a place to wear them.
