Earning my stripes

Vintage blouse, thrifted vest, Marc by MJ jeans, DKNY heels, Marc Jacobs bagI've been spending time spring cleaning, working on various projects (Final Friday PopShop is this week!), trying to find a hair stylist (seriously, I have a LIST of interview questions), enjoying time with my mom (hi Mom!), lamenting the fact that $3.85/gallon suddenly seems like a "reasonable" price for gas, and watching all the trees bloom green--seemingly overnight.I'm just so glad it's finally,...

Tumblr Tuesday: Purple fog and ice cream macarons

All of this rain is sending me into a trench coat-focused spiral of need; Purple fog in Milan is second ONLY to Purple Rain in Minneapolis (for obvious reasons); Sparkly heels, 'nuff said; Forget Me Not scarves are like beautiful paintings I want to drape myself in; Why weren't Jeni's ice cream-filled macarons in Columbus when I was?; Apollonia's OTT eye makeup is my new go-to look for lingerie-clad stage performances (because I do that...

Under Consideration

Okay, so I'm seriously considering getting a real hair cut. By seriously, I mean for the past two days, which is A REALLY LONG TIME, GUYS, especially considering I usually just grab some scissors and start hacking. Which is a big part of the reason I need a real, professional, non-jacked up hair cut now. I was browsing the Internets for ideas, and came across several pictures of Tanika Ray,...

Party Tips(y)

Last night, I went to a party and proceeded to drink approximately 1/5 of a vodka tonic before getting legitimately tipsy. The Official Excuse is that I hadn't had dinner yet, but it really just boils down to the fact that I'm a lightweight. We headed through Fountain Square on the way to find food to absorb the alcohol so I could walk home without wandering into the...

Can’t get away

No matter how I try, I just can't seem to get away from grays and neutrals. I want to--I do!--but TEH GRAYZ are such a prevalent part of my wardrobe it's hard to resist. I swear, one day I'm gonna bust out in red and pink and shock the heck out of everyone--including myself.H&M skirt and sweater; vintage blouse, necklace, and shoes; AA socks; Marc Jacobs bagOh, and to go along with the '70s secretary...

Tumblr Tuesday: Pants like the ocean and Fijan beaches

I want pants that flow like the ocean; This ring is begging for a Cleopatra getup and a corny asp joke; Love the crazy nighttime feel of this Michelle Armas painting; Fijan beach at night = I want to go to there; I miss dyeing Easter eggs with my mom; These trainers make me miss the days of LA Gear and British Knights.Find more inspiration at stylesample.tumblr.com!...

This is why I like shoes with ankle straps

So, this is probably going to sound silly, but I think my ankles are too skinny to pull off the socks-with-heels thing. Seriously, look!I thought I'd grown out of this particular paranoia (like maybe I gained some "ankle weight" or something), but these pictures brought it alllll back. Sigh. THIS is why I prefer shoes with ankle straps!Y'all know I think red shoes go with everything, so I did like the colors and the gold...
