And The Sugar On Top

Food and fashion are two of my favorite things in life, you know. And everytime I can mix them, well, I do it! I literally adore to look at brightly colored cakes, cookies and all sort of treats (although I never eat anything to "bold", but this is another story...!).

If shopping and chocolate are the cure of (almost) all sadness and if you dream about designer bags and Manolos but you can't afford them, you can still indulge in the fab little pieces below...

My favorites, from Eleni's NY, a new series each new season of course!

From The Flour Pot Cookies

And last but not least, for every Cinderella at heart, life size chocolate pumps and mules from Gayle's Chocolate

Aren't they great?

But for a guilt and cal free pleasure you can always go as a me.
I adore those full poofy 50s dresses and a couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to win the auction for this dress

I ended paying only 9.99$ for it. Less than a designer handbag, but also less than a designer handbags cookie set ;-)

Thanks everyone!

@ selinaoolala: actually my waist is often way too large for this kind of dresses, I could wear a 23" at the most but I found great pieces in a scary 20" waist !!!

@ annah: thank you! I didn't know the blog and it's really nice :-)
I should study a new hairstyle but I'm lazy in these day!

@ sam: now I understand why your birthday cake was so beautiful! You're so lucky!

@ lianne camille: sure, I added you :-)

@ oh, my, you don't have to kill yourself of course. Life, summer and your blog are beautiful!

@ ruby may, chililady: I would never be able to eat them too, they're too colorful for my stomach!!!

@ meg: well, I'm a constant ebayer ;-)

@ times of glory: a lot of people use to call me Snow White and I like it a lot, so thank you :-) !!!
