We’ve been looking forward to The Ugly Truth for awhile now, as the trailers started playing forever ago. Sure Kat Heigl is a little bit annoying, but she’s married to an Augusta boy, and we can’t lie, we liked 27 Dresses (sidebar, if you feel the need to start a sentence like this “hey, it’s kind of funny that your name is ‘Laney’ and her name is ‘Janey’ – about 27 people have beat you to it). But Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 13%! Ouch (less than half of 27). However, it also predicted Bride Wars to be horrible, and it was kind of fun. Maybe the ugly truth is that The Ugly Truth is a rental. What do you think – are you going to see it?
UPDATE: It’s ugly.

ATL Downtown is a special place. It’s cool. It’s crunk. The Falcons are there. And starting next week, it’s Atlanta Downtown Restaurant Week! In the never-ending push / pull of loving the finer things and being really poor, we love when we get to go out to dinner and eat it too! Ray’s, the Ritz, Social, and FAB are all participating. Pre-fixe 3 course meal for $25. July 27 – August 9. For a full list, click here.

Summer makes us feel a little more free with our clothing choices. We tend to get lax on blowdrying our hair and hear the calling of the college hippie skirts still in our closet (no, eMum we do not still wear them. yes, you’ve mentioned what you think about them. yes, we’re sure). Perhaps it’s summer that’s made these Mexican Tunic dresses peak our interest. Normally in the battle of tu-nic, or not tu-nic, we believe in waistline-waistline-waistline! But these Mexican Tunic dresses kind of make us what to Mex it up. What do you think?

We at elaney have a love hate relationship with all things Tory Burch. Tory B just seems so obvious. Everyone has the flats; everyone recognizes the logo, but at the same time, you kind of like the flats. And you sort of want to sport the logo. It’s like a rich man’s Miley Cyrus. You don’t want to like it, but you kind of do. So after a rather public and controversial stance on the flats, we feel that there is no going back there. But Neiman M has all the bags 50% off. Is it time for a truce?! What do you think – TB bags: bag it or bag it up?

We look forward to this every weekend for the six months leading up to it. After shopping in Paris, NYC, Rome, and Hong Kong, we can confirm that this is (not as good as those places, but still) a spot for excellent deals! Friday and Saturday at Atlantic Station. For details, click here.
