fakesgiving 2010

Hello there! Today was Fakesgiving (fake friends Thanksgiving), and it was a total success. Last year we had 4 people; this year we had 14 people! And so much wonderful food! We try to dress up because it’s just more fun, and that ends up making Fakesgiving more classy than my regular Thanksgiving, to be honest. Here’s what I wore:

This is almost head-to-toe New York & Company. Top: NY & Co. (size 6), pencil skirt: NY & Co. Collection (size 12).

september sunday

Oh, Midwest, you tricky little minx. I already started dressing in Fall mode, and here it was sunny, warm, and generally beautiful! At least my colors were equally sunny & cheery:

This has been featured a few times before, maybe not even that differently, but I still thought it was fun enough to share. Dress: Four Stars (size L), brown woven leather belt: thrifted, yellow tights: Gap.

casual friday

TGIF, am I right?

Super simple look today, but one I haven’t featured, so posting anyway – although there is really something to be said for simple clothes that are easy to wear and just make you feel good.

rainy day hues

“Golly, gee, would you look at that rain?”

Wednesday was one of those glum days that needed an adrenaline shot in the form of fashion. Ok, so, perhaps a silk dress wasn’t the wisest choice for rain, what with its tendency to cling, but at least I brightened up my own environment a bit!

modcloth avocado orchard dress

Those of you who follow me on Twitter got a little sneak peek at this yesterday. A while back, I was browsing ModCloth, like ya do, lusting after many a lovely frock (also like ya do), when I came across the Avocado Orchard Dress. I got weak in the knees at the mere sight of it! The cut! That belt! Those colors! But it was OUT OF STOCK! So I signed up for their handy “Alert me when this is back in stock” feature, figured it would never be back in stock, and promptly forgot about it. Then I got an email with the following subject line:

Avocado Orchard Dress – Hurry, it’s back in stock!


Don’t you love it? :)

feelin’ groovy

Celebrating their birth year of 1970, my family had a ’70s-themed 40th birthday party for my Aunt Jackie and Uncle Jon yesterday. I tried to dress semi-appropriately!

Sorry for the weird lighting here. Just pretend it’s psychedelic or something.

black & white & red all over

What’s black & white & red all over? Me!

Please pardon my roommate’s moving boxes. You’ve seen almost this exact retro-style look before, so click here if you want to read what I love about it. This look is just slightly different, however, which leads me to a question. Should I try to avoid the repeats, or do you enjoy seeing looks that have already been featured, as long as they are switched up in some way? Feedback is appreciated!
