These skirts (from Banana Republic and J. Crew). I'll probably try to find similar patterns - all Butterick patterns are a dollar at Hancock this week. I really wish I had more time for sewing.
Karmin. If you haven't heard of them, they're an adorable couple who make fun, clean party music. Their album comes out in just a few weeks! I love the singles they've released so far, and of course, their impressive rap covers. This one is still my favorite:
Aaaand.... the finale of One Tree Hill airs tonight! I discovered OTH in reruns on SoapNet a few years ago and was instantly hooked. I've seen the first four seasons multiple times, but haven't kept up as well with the later seasons - though I've stayed current since January since I knew this was the last season. In terms of major plotlines, the show has never been realistic: teen marriage, teens in trouble with the mob, teens going on concert tours, a group of college-aged friends all becoming millionaires and running business empires, heart transplants derailed by stray dogs, evil men and evil nannies wreaking havoc, multiple kidnappings, repeated near-fatal car accidents, and PTSD severe enough to make a man forget he has a son... just to name a few. But under all the ridiculousness, I love the heart of the show. I love the depth and complicated quality of the relationships. Over time, OTH has inspired me as a writer in a way I can't really put into words. I hope it gets a worthy ending!
