Weekend Links: Dirty Dancing Edition

Dirty Dancing @ Dream Sequins

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm heading up to the Catskills tonight to spend the weekend with friends in a country house (sadly no Dirty Dancing will take place). We'll be firing up the grill, lazing by the pool and visiting a pet cemetery (don't ask about that one-- but I'll be sure to take spooky pictures for your consumption). Hope you enjoy sunny times this weekend.

And be sure to click on some of these delicious links:


Couture Carrie gets into shiny things—and I think I like it.

Check out these lovely photos styled by the talented AsianCajuns.

Our City Lights shares some awesome polaroids from her recent trip to Northern California.

Wrecked Stellar rocks neon like no other—and nearly gets into it with a rude elder at the movies!

If you are catching up on Dream Sequins, check out this Super Awesome Giveaway of a style consultation with Mademoiselle Robot, which will be open until July 22nd. This week, I also posted a Twitter-view: Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?, in which my Twitter friends disclosed their dream dinner dates. And last but not least, check out the Behind the Blog feature with E of District of Chic!

I'm skipping the samples sales this summer, but Doo Ri is one I should make no matter what!
Sounds like a great trip, enjoy! (and yes, you have inspired me to watch Dirty Dancing again this weekend).
