Tumblr Tuesday: Ankle Cuffs and Checklist Stamps

I love the boldness of heels with shiny silver ankle cuffs; Andre is a trip and a half, but his one-liners and ostentatious capes never fail to amuse; My hyper-organized side is seriously coveting this checklist stamp; The cover of Nabokov’s Lolita gets a lacy type treatment; A pop of yellow in a neutral room seems just right; This still life is so calm and lovely that it makes me want to (try to) do

My Favorite Matador

A few weeks ago, I was asked to participate in the Symphonic Stylings fashion show on behalf of NVISION vintage boutique in Northside. I happily obliged by hamming it up all over the runway in a haze of wannabe Sasha Fierce-ness. It’s completely contrary to my nature to be that close to that many beautiful clothes without obsessing over SOMETHING, so after seeing this gorgeous matador-print skirt swish down the runway, I had to have it. It

Style: Dizzy Spell

Shop the look: Dorothy Perkins Aztec print tee | Oodi shell necklace | Forever21 Chevron striped pants | Bebe python print heels

Tumblr Tuesday: Earthpins and Painted Peacocks

The sheer fabulousness of these Balmain booties is giving me fashion hallucinations; How neat would it be if hills were created by giant clothing pins?; I’d like to hole up in a luxurious hotel room and sleep for a few days, pleaseandthankyou; I’m not one to wear my heart on my sleeve, but wearing it around my neck is a different story; I’m working on determining my “look” for fall, and this combination of quirky

Win a $40 Gift Card to The Limited!

I know, I know, I’ve been a Bad Blogger™. Just leaving without saying a word, not posting or tumblr-ing (though I have been tweeting). My bad! Though I have to say, it’s been nice just living life without thinking about how to editorialize it. Every now and then, it’s rejuvenating to take a Blog Break. Aaaanywho. I’m back today because I received an email offering readers a $40 gift card to The Limited (my old college

Brunch Basics

I love a leisurely weekend brunch as much as the next wino, but the whole occasion becomes slightly less leisurely when someone* is rushing you to get ready because they hate waiting in line at IHOP with the rest of the hangover crowd. When I need to look somewhat presentable in 15 minutes or less, I like to stick to the basics: cotton tank dress, femme high-tops, a denim jacket, and a big ol’ hairbun. No

Tumblr Tuesday: Red Velvet Ice Cream and Hippie Glam Sandals

How am I supposed to cut back on sweets when things like Red Velvet and Salted Caramel Pretzel ice cream exist?; You wouldn’t know it from the current state of my closet, but I like seeing accessories organized neatly; A cleverly altered plastic chair serves as a not-so-subtle reminder that yes, you WILL die; Who knew a rock (cushion) could be so comfy?; I feel like now is a good time to pare down my
