Birthday Event

I've been having a very challenging time at work and thus have not updated the blog in a long time. Sorry. Anyway, today is the weekend before my birthday, so we are going wine tasting in the Boulder Valley area. This shrug was a random find on etsy and I am in love! She normally makes these shrugs for weddings, but I'm the kind of person who figures that if it's good enough for a wedding, it's good enough for me to wear everyday.

I am obscenely amused with the fact that I just happened to grab the one pair of shoes I own that have elastic straps and my new Elastic Bandage cage legging from minxshop. The effect is so serendipitous, I am shocked.

I got a new nose ring from Rock Your Nose on etsy. I was looking for something with a little extra umph to it. I just happened to stumble upon this seller two weeks ago and I love her stuff. I will be purchasing a great deal more from her.

Fade to Black

This is what I am wearing for a dinner of ribs. I wanted to try out the feather cap with something more casual. With a dress, I think it'll just be way too dressy for everyday. I mean, it's already an attention grabber, so a dress would make it more dressy than my everyday life can bear. That's why I waited till I got to my parents house to reclaim my black jumpsuit.

Walking on a Dream

So, I've been gone. I haven't felt that my outfits were all that extra special and therefore, felt no motivation as far as the photography bit. Sometimes, you just need to recalibrate. I believe that with everything. I believe that with my job, teaching Zumba, and fashion. So, I just took it easy for a while and now I'm feeling fabulous. This outfit materialized in my head on a whim yesterday and I decided to just wear it without even laying it out, first. I do this sometimes, but they are typically safer outfits. I am so happy with this, though. It's campy and outlandish and it makes me feel a little like an eccentric old lady. Furthermore, picture taking went like a dream, which was great since my puppy was with me and I could tell he was getting restless.
So, sometimes recalibrating does work and it's not just a justification residing in my head.

Autumn Loves

Ok, so you all got the rant from my last post and now I'm going to give you a teeny glimpse into what I'm doing about it. What I feel I lack in my wardrobe currently are those surprising "that makes your entire outfit" pieces. I have them, but those I have bore me. Here are a couple of pieces I've found (mostly on asos)that will hopefully keep me inspired as I enter my favorite season.

I'm into weird headpieces right now. I really want an indian headdress, but they are crazy expensive everywhere I've looked. In lieu of that, I've found plenty of animal-like silouettes to give my outfits a little surprise factor.
It's megacheap on forever 21's website.

You just saw this in the previous post, but I think that it will pop up often during the cooler months of autumn. There is a bit of flair to it and I like the fact that no one can ignore me with this accessory atop my head.

A feather cape is just what the doctor ordered here. Melodrama (there's an overabundance of that in this post) and at a steal. How could a fashion concious girl resist?

Another sale find from asos, that is from the summer season. Too damn bad! The lace and the cat ears begs for the melodrama of fall, in my mind.

I'm pretty sure this bag, like some of my other items, was from the summer collection. However, something about the muted colors and the airy texture of the feathers has me visualizing it with chunky, oversized sweaters and short sequin skirts for fall.

This is one of my favorite finds. I actually looked on ebay for something similar and cheaper, but to no avail. They were all more expensive. This is en route to my house even as we speak and I think it is going to get overused this autumn.

Now, you tell me. Where are you looking for inspiration this fall? I'm dying to know. I need websites, magazines, whatever is hitting your fashion hotspot, right now.

Bunny Ears

Ok, summer and its clothing has officially become stale. I thought this outfit might make me feel better, but I ended up hating it almost instantly. I think it has less to do with the actual outfit as it does my deep-seated resentment for sweating in everything I wear right now. Does anyone have autumn temperatures currently? If so, I'm moving there.
By the way, just a little heads up: I'm heading (back) to San Fransisco in October and want very badly to spend a lot of money there. That on top of finding little of inspiration in any of the 8000 places that I shop online and otherwise means that I will be looking to get creative with what I've got. I do plan on garage saling a little again this fall (I think that's when you get the best stuff) to add a little creative flair back into my wardrobe, but I won't be making major purchases for a few months.
Also, thank you to my followers. I have now exceeded 90, which is completely astonishing to me. Sorry for being such a bum blogger lately.

You know I don't want to be clever

I really love this outfit! I like the flowy, yumminess of it, especially in summer. So, I bought this dress from asos as a recommendation from Patrice, but it's perhaps a bit too large. Belts seem to add a nice shape, however, which makes me happy.
By the way, I discovered a new yummy food/drink combination: Cupcake Chardonnay and Goldfish are delish together. I couldn't stop eating them.
