Unpopular Fashion Opinions

I'm sick, my nose won't stop running, and I have a lot of work to do, so I'm feeling extra grouchy. I'm also a little woozy from the meds and in the mood to talk about UFOs--no, not the kind with little green people--UFOs as in Unpopular Fashion Opinions. There are several things that are deemed "classics" in the fashion universe--untouchable icons of style, so to speak. Things everyone else seems to love that I have

Zoot Suit Quiet

Thrifted trousers, blouse, belt, and jacket; DKNY heelsSomething about the pants I picked up during this Thrifting Adventure (TM) make me feel like a cross between a circus clown and that dancing cartoon cat from Paula Abdul's "Opposites Attract" video.  But you know, in a good way.

Tumblr Tuesday: Wicked Witches and Wrapping Paper

Please pardon my absence as of late--I've been off earning my official Bad Blogger Badge. I recently went from working like crazy to find a job to working like crazy because I have too many jobs. Since my schedule is not as flexible as it once was (*sheds a tear*), I'm thinking I'll go back to posting three times a week like when I first started blogging--maybe Tuesday, Thursday, and

Winter Wares

Since I'm gearing up for The Big Switch--you know, switching out all of my lightweight summer stuff for heavier knits and wools--I thought it would be a good idea to keep this season's color + texture inspiration in mind.

Not Quite A Schoolgirl

It's been a "few" years since I could credibly claim even attending any sort of school, let alone wearing a uniform. As much as I've always loved clothes, I would've killed for a Gossip Girl-style uniform back in junior high and high school--and sometimes I still like to pretend.Colin Stuart blazer; thrifted blouse, skirt, and bootsAlso, there's a Jenni Kayne pop-up shop at The Wardrobe starting today, with a portion

Halloween Costume Help!

So, the Best Holiday Ever is coming this weekend, and I still have no idea what or who I want to be. I swear I had plenty of ideas back in June--what happened to them?For inspiration, I looked at some of my costumes from years past:I MIGHT take this whole costume thing too seriously sometimes

Tumblr Tuesday: Cookie Art and The Casa Sutra

I've started randomly striking this pose in various public spaces; A cameo made from an Oreo cookie is the perfect marriage of art and, well, cookies; Yet another dude I want to dress like, bag and all; Chairs with no shame unabashedly assume casa sutra positions in public; A dressing area with a working tub and gothic chandelier is a dressing area I want to be in; These are the perfect recycled jack o' lanterns,
