Dressed in (almost) All Black Like The Omen

Thrifted blazer; American Apparel skirt; Mustard Seed tank; Ash sandals; jewelry from unknown vendorsAs much as I want to wear multiple bright colors, it never seems to work out. I wore my DIY sleeveless blazer with plenty of goes-with-everything black, red drop earrings, and my favorite orange lipstick. I guess I've always been more comfortable playing the demon child.Have a great weekend!...

Sexy Secretaries and Burnt Oranges at Resort 2012

The Resort collections are moving right along without much fanfare, which is kind of the point of Resort--not everyone and their grandma sees it, so it's more difficult to identify which collection pieces came from and when. Pretty sweet deal for the fashion lover who doesn't want people pointing and yelling "Miu Miu, Spring 2010!" when she walks down the street.Some of my favorites so far:And, apparently, Alber ('cause we're...

DIY Collection: Sleeveless vest

Y'all won't believe this, but I finished another DIY Collection project! This time, I decided to take on the sleeveless blazer--I'm much better at destroying and deconstructing than I am at creating.I decided to use this rarely-worn rayon-blend blazer I picked up from a thrift store last year. I love the pattern and the shape, but hardly ever wear it because it's usually too hot for long sleeves by the time...

Tumblr Tuesday: Cute Kittens and a Magical Wonderland

I wish I could figure out how to work a full-on tree into my living room decor; Studded nude heels go with everything; Can there ever really be enough cute kitties on the internets?; I can't believe this magical wonderland exists in real life; Love this wax seal-inspired bracelet charm by Jessica de Lotz; a strawberry and cream covered waffle is officially the new Breakfast of Champions.Find more inspiration at stylesample.tumblr.com!...

Crazy or lazy

Spent the weekend alternately lying around in complete slacker mode or running around like a chicken with my head cut off--no in-between. Crazy or lazy, I always say.Thrifted shorts, belt & top; no-name bag; Naughty Monkey sandals; Stetson hatOn Saturday, the most strenuous thing I did was eat. To be fair, I actually LEFT THE HOUSE to do so. TWICE. That has to count for something.SSOMOn Sunday, I headed over to Main Street to volunteer...

Shoe Withdrawal, Need Advice

So, I have a "problem." I'm suffering from shoe withdrawal. I haven't bought a pair of shoes--any shoes--in over 6 months, and I'm starting to feel it. My left eye is twitching.Add to that the fact that in the last two weeks, not one but TWO pairs of my favorite walking flats have developed holes in the soles. I know shoes can often be re-soled, but, really, where's the fun...

Guide: Summer in the City

'Member how I said I wanted to start including stuff about other people on this site so it's only, say, 95% self-indulgent vanity? Well, I'm sticking with it! I asked a few of my bloggy friends (that's what I'm calling them until YOU come up with something better, all right?) what they were into right now and they rose to the occasion:Occupation:  Sales Analyst  |  Stomping ground: Downtown CincinnatiReading:  Finishing Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell...

DIY: Elastic Elation

You guys! I finished a mending* project thanks to something I learned on the internets! So, I've had this vintage beaded skirt  for years, but never really wore it because the elastic waist was SO stretched out. Even a belt wouldn't keep this sucker up. Enter this video and my newfound do-it-yourself-y-ness, and I decided to try my hand at fixing the waistband. MYSELF. Step 1: Remove the thread from the waistband. I used...
