Victorian Chic

I was inspired by Monday's episode of Gossip Girl. Blair kept wearing all of these flowy collared shirts with big brooches in the center and it was so chic, I just had to create a version of my own. I luckily have this cameo pin from my grandmother that was the perfect compliment to the color pallet of my cream vintage top and light pink tank. What was even more exciting were these skinny pants I got from Ann Taylor Loft. They are like legging pants, fit like a glove, and actually don't make my legs look giant!!!

Pretty Punky

Today's look was really more about mixing a pretty look with something more edgy. I paired this gorgeous brooch headwrap with a structured patterned top. Also, my leggings, worn as pants today, are a matte lame with a snakeskin motif to give it that extra edge. All are from Urban Outfitters.

Dance Party...punk style!

I was a little hesitant to wear my headwrap across my forehead but it actually made me feel glamorous, as if I had a tiara on. Yay for feeling pretty, and like a little punk.

Today, I was inspired by a new blog I have been reading Orchid Grey. I loved how she used a scarf to create texture and pattern to a dress. I paired my scarf with a basic black dress I wear all the time to give it a new pattern. It also covered up the fact that I am all bloaty today. Boo for being a girl :(

Dress: The Gap
Cardigan: Silence + Noise from Urban Outfitters

Halloween Presents: Princess Peach

I usually don't get into Halloween but this year, we were also celebrating my niece's 1st birthday by dressing up. My boyfriend and I decided to go as Mario and Princess Peach as an homage to our Nintendo playing days. Overall, it was a lot of fun and I can't wait to dress up next year!

I found this dress on eBay for $15 and decided to give our costumes a cartoon effect by creating foam accessories. My brooch was made of foam as well as my crown.

Also, we thought it would be more fun for my boyfriend to be the raccoon Mario so I attached a feather boa that looked like a raccoon's tail and added foam ears to his hat (also purchased on eBay).

My niece as a bee! Isn't she the cutest? Surprisingly, she kept on the antennas all night!
