Caught my Eye Friday

Here is some cool stuff I found around the internetz this week!

Like most of the world I am obsessed with Henri Le Chat Noir. But I feel akin to him in many ways, he may be my new spirit animal.

Le sigh

Continuing on that depressing note, this song pretty much sums up the fears of a generation in a truly funny sad a way.

Okay let’s cheer up please, bring on the cute stuff!

Check out these totes amazeballs shoes from Etsy seller Pony Chops. (Pictures link to shop.)

Each of these hand painted shoes are so unique and fun and are sure to garner a lot of attention and squees of cuteness! They run about a hundred US dollars, and they also take custom orders so you can get a pair in your size or a print of you wildest kawaii dreams.

Put a Bird on It

My new favorite trend right now is birds! Beautiful birds and feathers are everywhere right now, form jewelry to home decor, and they swooping into fashion big time. (
Sorry that will be my only bird pun, I promise!) I am definitely into this trend full force. I mean you can have a sad little tote bag, but once you put a bird on it, gasp “did you see that bag before!”

Here are some of my favorite bird items I’ve spotted.

Put a bird on it

Bird prints are perfect going into spring and summer. Plus it is a really easy trend to work with because it can be styled in so many different ways. Bird cage prints like the Torrid top and Asos and Lucie Lu dresses can be styled with pastels and light flower fabrics for a vintage romantic look. The Yours bird tops and anything with owls and be worn with more edgy or 70s inspired pieces for hipster, hippie, or rock festival trends. And take your peacock prints and anything with feathers and turn it into a sexy, tropical summer look.

How do you feel about birds, do you love it as much as I do or are you flying the coop on this trend (Sorry I know I had to!) I am currently redecorating my room with a bird cage print bed set and little birdie wall decals, and now I am looking for bird prints to add to my wardrobe. So I guess I am going in completely with this trend.

Also can’t go without posting this…

Belated Holidays

So Sunday was Easter but right now I’m going to share my St. Patrick’s Day outfit. Last St Patty’s Day I was in Ireland, so this year and probably any year in the future could not and will not be up to live up to it. But this year I had my super awesome Dotty Doll dress from Domino Dollhouse, and all of my excitement went into wearing it.

Outfit Details
Dress: Domino Dollhouse size 2x
Headband: Forever 21
Necklace: Ireland
Earrings and ring: Torrid from awhile ago
Bracelet: gift from my mom

So I spent the day in a traditional Irish fashion having lunch at a mexican restaurant, o’margaritas and mc nachos, erin go ole! Then we ended the night at a bar filled with drunkenness and bagpipes!

(p.s. I’ll have my easter outfit soon!)

Happy Birthday to the Ground!

I recently celebrated my 29th birthday. Eep my last year in my twenties, I really don’t feel that old, and I don’t think I’m ready for it. Well who really is? But when I was younger and I used to picture what my life would be like when I reached this age, it’s nothing like what I thought it would be. Well I might as well enjoy this passing youth while I can and plunge into my thirties in full force. Here is what I wore to celebrate the day.

me and the bf


For my birthday I asked for a chair, a very grown up present! I’ve been trying to redecorate my room a little bit and after turning my desk into a vanity, I decided I needed a perfect boudouir chair. I fell in love with this purple one from Pier one.


My cat fell in love with it too!

Pineapple Express

I love it when an outfit can completely change your mood. I had been a little depressed lately and I wasn’t sure at first about this insanely bright and colorful outfit. But as soon as I had it on for a few minutes, I started to feel incredible cheerful and silly.

I feel like I should be an extra on the old kid’s show Gullah Gullah Island; in fact I was singing the theme song for most of the day.

Outfit Details:
Top: Asos size 14
Pants: Asos Curve size 18
Flower: Asos
Earrings: Claire’s
Necklace: Express
Watch: Daytrip via ShoeDazzle
Shoes: Andie via ShoeDazzle

I had been admiring these pants for awhile and as soon as they went on sale I had to have them. I was looking for a top to go with them when I stumbled across this one. When I received it, it was much more over sized then I expected and I wasn’t too sure if I wanted to keep it. But like I said, the longer I wore it, the more giddy I got, and the more I loved it.

Do outfits ever effect your mood, can you put on a shirt or dress and your day is instantly brightened? I know when we wear ill fitting or things we are uncomfortable in, it can instantly dampen your mood and ruin your day. But what about the opposite effect? What are your go to happy clothes?

Fatshion February 7: I Love my White Blazer Part 1

Most of last week was filled with me laying around in pjs or wearing work out clothes, so I didn’t have much fit for Fatshion February. I promise I will try to make up for it this week though. I even decided to look for some outfit inspirations. I recently got a three month free subscription to Lucky magazine for my Kindle Fire; and I found this article called “I love my: white blazer,” which showed white blazer styled four different ways. I too have a white blazer that I love but don’t seem to wear often enough, so I decided to give it a try.

The first outfit featured the blazer with a white sequined cocktail dress and color blocked flats.

Being a goth kid for most of my life, white on white is something I have never tried, and honestly I was a little afraid of. I went with a more casual white tennis dress, and too my surprise I liked the look a lot. I still felt the need to break up the outfit with a metallic pink skinny belt. Also since it is still winter here, I needed to add leggings but decided to go with a light grey hoping not to add too much to the color palette. I luckily also have a pair of color block flats, which lately I have been wearing with pretty much everything! Overall, I thought the all white gave a very luxe look to a simple and comfy outfit and I would not be opposed to trying it more in the future.

Outfit Details:
Blazer: Torrid size 1
Dress: NY & Company size XL
Leggings: Lane Bryant size AB
Headband: Asos
Earrings: Betsey Johnson via TJ Maxx
Necklace: Express
Belt: Asos size 16/18
Watch: Sanrio
Ring: Tarina Tarantino
Shoes: ShoeDazzle
