Well, we have a little trouble in paradise these days. One of my Sasha blondes has decided that she is actually Marie Antoinette. I made the mistake -- actually two mistakes -- of letting her watch the Kirsten Dunst film version of Marie Antoinette's life. The second mistake was buying her a gown from Carpatina that resembled one from the film.

Now my sweet blonde is walking around with her nose in the air, swishing her skirts and announcing "Let them eat cake!"

I tried to explain that Marie Antoinette never actually said that but it doesn't matter. Even telling her that Marie lost her head over it hasn't deterred her one bit.

Well, I give up. This is, after all, her favorite thing.
