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!

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.
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.
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.
Eeep it’s March already, and I’m afraid I didn’t get too many outfits into my first Fatshion February. But good news, I’m starting a new job, and my birthday is coming up, so I promise I’ll have plenty more outfits to post. But for now, here are two leftovers from February.

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.

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.
