For ModCloth’s Uniquely You campaign, I created this Polyvore set/outfit around the Vivacious and Vibrant Dress in Noir. I was inspired by vintage-inspired elements such as the hat and the earrings, but also more modern elements such as the shoes and the handbag. I wanted to maintain a little vintage edge while at the same time injecting playfulness and whimsy into the outfit. The shoes are some of my absolute favorite shoes (Mel by Melissa) so of course I couldn’t resist adding them to this set. Basically, this outfit has some of my favorite thing: hearts, flowers, polka dots, bows, vintage-y flair, starts, and cute-ness!
Modcloth has so many cute dresses and accessories – they have something for every budget and even extended sizes, which is really great for us curvy gals.
What do you think? Hope you all like it. Happy wednesday – be sure to check my blog tomorrow for the (almost) weekly Thrift Style Thursday post!
So, I was wearing this grungy outfit the other day: plaid, jeans, vest, Docs. But I was having a really really bad day at work and when I got home, I didn’t feel like having my picture taken. So instead of my actual ‘grunge’ outfit, I am showing off just 1 grunge-y piece, my new olive green utility jacket.
I can’t get enough of this jacket, it seems to go with everything. Here are 2 ways I wore it in the past few weeks. It’s kind of grunge-y right? Paired with docs and something flannel screams grunge to me.
Well, thats it folks. Sorry for a late and lackluster #TST post this week but I am still super stressed at my new job. Hoping it gets better soon.
Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TST crew!
it’s not news to anyone who regularly reads my blog that I love polka dots and I love various shades of the color yellow. Put those 2 things together and BAM – I’m a fan for life. This is what’s so great about this skirt =)
Hope you’re having a good monday – I am soooo tired today! darn insomnia!

I didn’t have a clue what to wear until I realized that my photographer friend Rachel’s Gatsby photoshoot was this weekend and that I could use Halloween to test out hair, makeup, and outfits. Also, we found out that 2 of our models couldn’t make it, so I have to fill in as a model, which will be fun but scary!
So, here I am, all dressed up as a flapper, fancy 1920s lady for my work Halloween contest. I didn’t win like last year (our group costume won 2nd place) but that’s ok because I had a great time. By the way, styling long hair like this (finger waves) is a LOT harder than it looks. The make up wasn’t too bad, I even penciled in my eyebrows to make them appear longer and thinner.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE! xoxo

This is not a very exciting post, nor is it a very exciting outfit.
BUT, I finally got to wear my new Zara leggings and I got excited. I thought for a long time that curvy gals couldn’t wear leggings but I figured out that I could definitely pull them off with boots + a longer blouse/tunic + jacket or sweater.
Hope everyone’s having a great Tuesday!
