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!
Angry gods bidding February goodbye with some Colorado Thundersnow??? Fight back with glittery sunglasses and some BONKERS high heeled rubber and neoprene Sorel boots.
Like mother like daughter
If you ever wonder about nurture v nature, ponder this candid shot of Eleanor and I. Basically the same person. Except my outfit was more expensive.
Here in Colorado we have two seasons. Summer consists of July and August. It’s hot. The other ten months, well, you never know. I’m celebrating the 70 deg weather by saying ‘screw you February’ in an aggressively yellow dress.
Tipsy Cooking: Baked Polenta & Kitchen Sink Salad is even easier than me (ba-dum-dumn)
“Crap, there’s nothing for dinner.” This single thought takes up approximately 5% of all my brain activity on any given day. Having this gem in your repertoire comes in handy on busy weeknights or when you need to look like you tried really hard (i.e. impressing menfolk.) It’s also great because it uses ingredients you…
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….
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…
