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!

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.

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.

Dress: Beth Ditto for Evans via Ebay UK size 20
Jacket: Torrid size 1
Tights: Hips and Curves size XL
Hair Bow: XSRE
Earrings: Betsey Johnson via TJ Maxx
Necklace: Betsey Johnson, gift from my mom
Ring: Tarina Tarantino via Regencies and ShoeDazzle
Shoes: Jade via ShoeDazzle


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 6: Pony Ride

Outfit Details:
Dress: Fashion to Figure size XXL
Sweater: H&M size L
Leggings: Torrid size 2
Scarf and Pin: Raspberry Beret (Thrift Store)
Headband: Forever 21
Earrings and Bracelet: gifts from mom and coworker
Shoes: ShoeDazzle

I’ve had this outfit planned in my head for awhile but I just never got around to wearing it; I had to add a sweater to it though because alas it only seems to be springtime in my dreams. I love the bright coral color of this dress but I’m afraid it doesn’t look the best against my skin tone. So instead of pairing with another bright color like turquoise, I decided to try toning it down a little by adding a dark hunter green scarf. I think I really like the effect. By the way this dress is also being sold on the Re/dress website in a couple different colors on sale now.

Don’t you love my beautiful, sparkly Hello Kitty shoes. I was originally drooling over these on the Hello Kitty site but the price turned that drool to tears. Luckily they are also being sold on the Torrid website and I was able to snag them at half off when they were having their haute cash coupon sale. No I can sparkle with Hello Kitty magic everywhere I go!
