The Cat’s Meow

Sometimes I just need to indulge in total cuteness with my outfits. This was one of those days. It started off with just the cute kitty sweater but then I just needed to keep on adding more elements of cuteness! I don’t care if I went overboard, I need to spread my cuteness love with the world!

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
Shoes: ShoeDazzle

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.

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?

Do You Love Love?

People seem to get so up in arms about Valentine’s Day, I don’t really get it. Okay I know I have a boyfriend and I know that when you are single the day can be hard. But guess what? It’s just a day, a made up holiday at that. I say whether you are single or in a relationship don’t take it so seriously. If you are in relationship, try not to put too much pressure on yourself or your date. Cook your own dinner instead of going out or order a plain pizza and decorate with your own toppings in hearts or funny sayings. Buy a box of chocolates from the drugstore and eat them off of each other. Or just stay home and cuddle under a blanket. And if your single, use the day as an excuse to have a fun time with your friends. Get dressed up, go to a bar and hand out paper valentines to anyone you think is cute or looks lonely. Rent the sappiest, corniest movies you can find and pig out on ice cream and chocolate. Or have a sleepover like when you were kids, paint each others nails and play truth or dare. Just have fun with it!

Although I am not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day, I just love everything that comes with it. All the pink and hearts and candy and cuteness; how can you not? Also now is the time when all of the really great corsets, lingerie, and hosiery starts coming out. I made a few Polyvore sets showcasing all of my favorite valentine’s Day outfits in red, black, and pink for whether you are going out or staying in (if you know what I mean, wink wink!)

So, I’m not going to lie, but I kind of want everything from Domino Dollhouse’s new lingerie line. Its just all of the perfect pin up sexiness I’ve been dreaming of. Unfortunately its not really in my budget right now, but a girl can dream, right?

Torrid and Cacique never seem to fail when it comes to lingerie for Valentine’s and this year is no exception. Torrid also has quite a few cute casual selection in their VDay lookbook including super cute print cardigans and lots of fun jewelry.

So what are your plans for Valentine’s Day, do you play it up whether you or single or not, or do you just ignore it completely?

Belated Xmas Ootd and Contest Winner!

Eeep It’s already mid January and I still haven’t posted any holiday outfits. I am behind on the times. Well after I got back from my cruise I got really sick, so I decided to spend christmas day curled up in bed in my pjs hugging a kitty while my family went out. So the only christmas outfit I have is from a friend’s pot luck dinner from the beginning of the month.





Outfit Details:
Top: Express size Large
Jacket: Torrid size 1
Skirt: Etsy seller PrototypeDesign size Medium
Belt: NY & Company size XL
Tights: We Love Colors size c/d
Earrings: Lia Sophia
Necklaces: Sanrio and Lia Sophia
Bracelet: Gift from mom
Shoes: ShoeDazzle

Let’s start with this skirt; if I could, I would wear it everyday. I first saw this Miu Miu inspired skirt on tumblr and knew it had to be mine. Well I first saw these Miu Miu shoes and knew they had to be mine…but without the price tag.

So the skirt was a very happy alternative. After conversing with the owner of Prototype Designs I was able to get a skirt in my size and I was in love. It was well worth the wait. Seriously if you have not checked this shop out yet, do it now. Along with cats, there are birds, bows, polka dots, florals, scarves, and everything else you’ve been craving.

The shoes, called Aubrey, from ShoeDazzle are the highest heels I have ever owned. I hemmed and hawed over ordering them, but they are just so similar to Jeffrey Campbell’s Litas, I just couldn’t let them pass. I have to say the height wasn’t too bad. I don’t think I could wear them if I had to stand or walk for a very long time, but they were perfect for a dinner party. I got a lot of compliments too and a lot of “I could never wear such high heels.” Me neither lol, but the width of the heel and the platform helped a lot. And I got to be taller than everyone!
