TAKE ALL MY MONEY

During my weekly troll of favorite sites, I came across the most insane, perfect, WTF is it skirt at Jcrew.com It’s like a western-Gilded Age- cake topper with pink polka dot tulle.  If I had $1000 laying around, this would be obvious best use of said money.

You can’t be sad on a swing 

Everything is still generally terrible (don’t read the news, ever) but it’s spring and there’s flowers and a swing set.  This flamenco-dancer sparkle day skirt doesn’t hurt either…. 

Heels + grass = suburban Godzilla lady 

After work (yes I wore a cardigan with the dress in court,  I’m not a heathen!) I was in my yard looking for tulips like one does.  My new Alexander Wang heels are now muddy but I have this awesome shot where I look like I’m going to go eat some villagers.   

On Wednesdays We (Still) Wear Pink 

Lurking in my aging body beats the heart of the girl who made ‘fashion violation’ tickets with her bitchy friends and gave them out in high school.  Mean girls forever!  

OOTD: Outlander Dreaming

If you’ve seen Outlander and were able to focus on anything other than how effing gorgeous Jamie is, you probably noticed that the clothes are also amazing. Although I prefer my Jamie without them, but whatevs. This outfit makes me feel like Claire, mixing a little 1940’s skirt and blouse action with a Versailles-worthy velvet blazer…

A Lesson in Failure

This is a longer read than usual, but stay with me friends. January is inherently a terrible month, and this one has been worse than usual.  Hence my total radio silence.  Who wants to see “OOTD:  oversized sweater and weird politically-caused pimple on cheek.” But I’ve pulled myself back from the brink before, and I…

Ootd: totally court appropriate tights! 

Getting dressed in January is not fun.  The thrill of getting out sweaters and boots evaporated weeks ago and Spring dresses feel a million years away.  Soooooo….. tights with moons and stars!  It’s the little things right? And look how cute this bow is.  I can’t see it but I know it’s back there somewhere….

Disco rodeo

When my bossfriend asked me what on earth I was wearing, the answer came immediately:  disco rodeo.  It’s denim and sparkles and prairie boots and the perfect antidote for blustery day blues.    

Like a jungle cat

So there was this Marni blouse that had cats on it that I was dying for.  But even I couldn’t justify spending $1000 on a blouse.  With cats. Imagine my glee when I found this impostor cat blouse at H&M during black Friday/weekend for $7.  Scorrrre. To help balance out the mass-produced poly blend sadness…

Festive snow boots & work Snuggie

It took until December, but we finally got some snow here in Denver.  I was getting anxious not because I worry about devastating wildfires and drought– no– I really wanted to break in the sweet boots and break out the sweater dress (i.e work-appropriate Snuggie).

The shipping emporium / bee shoes

Between the constant incoming boxes from various online merchants and the outgoing things I sold on Poshmark and Ebay (which are unsurprisingly things from said online purchases that don’t fit or are weird), I have accumulated a lot of shipping materials.  Like, to the point that my coworkers come to my office when they need…
