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…

Ootd: target run 

  Everyone, even mega-celebrities like myself (chortle) need a place where you can get lemon extract, hair dye, and $200 of WTF random objects. Seriously, what did I just buy? Style tip:  I refuse to let a closet full of open-toe shoes lie dormant for 5 months.  Wear some opaque tights with those bad boys.  …

I am obsolete– Racked.com review

During a morning of children/ cleaning avoidance, I found a website that is basically what I want my own site to be, but it’s like a million times better.  I probably shouldn’t advertise that.  However, my ethical duty as a fashion blogger requires me to tell you to go to Racked.com immediately. There’s shopping tips,…

Ootd: a little boob

I was trying to go for a 1970’s Town and Country vibe.  The photobombing 7 yr old  adds a certain”realness.”  I also realized after I got to work that you can totally see my boobs. Generally I am pro-boob.  In court, not as much.      BThe skirt is METALLIC.
