Raleigh's racking up some more accolades - this week out of 40 cities we won the "35th worst dressed city for men". Congrats to all the City of Oaks males who made this possible. I think it's a little general to just say everyone looks like they're going to a golf course. Did GQ even check out downtown Raleigh? What about the small but growing hipster population? Boston won the #1 slot.

The other night, we were watching This Is Spinal Tap, and I found myself craving a cigarette. "But I hate cigarettes!" I thought. Then I realized: Fran Drescher is just making smoking look SO COOL. More about this look: the off-the-shoulder dress = hot. Earrings: perfect. Makeup: perfect heavy eye/light lip balance. And her hair! Normally I'm really not crazy about a total pullback, ballerina-style, but the gold comb she's wearing in her bun really sets off the look.
And her attitude! See left for the classic Drescher 'tude, about cancer, holding an adorable dog in a t-shirt. Style file: case closed.
