gilt edge | about me

Hi.

Thanks for visiting my blog! Lots of clothes, oodles of beauty, a few books, and some food. I love hearing from you - so drop me a line! xoxo

4th of july kimono && πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ jello

Wildfox Swimsuit (previously worn here), Free People Kimono, Ray-Ban Sunglasses, Lips - NARS in Dragon Girl

I would describe this outfit as πŸ‘ΈπŸΌπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έβ­οΈβ€οΈπŸ˜Ž! We all agree, yes? (Guys, emojis are how I do life, okrrrrr?) It was actually really cold on the 4th in Northern Indiana, but that didn't stop me from moving forward with my outfit as planned. It was just too fab not to!

July 4th may very well be my favorite holiday. I love America, like a lot, a lot. When I first moved to New York everyone would always ask me what I was, which was so, so confusing to me. No one had ever asked me that in my life. And I'd always respond "I'm American" which just confused them. Ha! But let's be honest, my father was born here, my father's father was born here, my father's father's father was born here. You get the picture. American Girl through and through 😘

Also, sidenote, anyone notice the bruise on my right arm? I bruise SO easy. Beginning to think I am a very delicate peach or something πŸ‘

Hello, Jello!

Ugh, ok, onto this mess. Last week, I was really in the mood for a Pinterest fail. Like something that would shake me to my core and make me question my domestic prowess, and these little twits really delivered.

I'd pinned this photo a few years ago. And really when it comes down to it, layering Jello is insanely easy. You pour it in the pan and wait. Go read a book! Drink a beer! Take a nap! Catch up on Mindy Project! And then add another layer! But my layers are so wonky. Should have let them set up on a level shelf. But who knew the shelf wasn't level?? And unmolding these suckers was just like 😩. And it wasn't until after I'd started the process that it even occurred to me that I should have added vodka. This is either an amateur mistake or a sign that I am getting old and therefore boring (please... say it isn't so). Anyway, my grandparents were nice enough to eat a flag and tell me it was delicious. Thank god for grandparents.
