mad style

Well, after MUCH consideration, I submitted my original photo in the Mad Men casting call contest! Here’s a screenshot:

Click to vote daily! As you can see, I didn’t wear the dress I’d planned on (which was really more ’40s than ’60s) and didn’t even take photos in the downtown location I’d originally wanted to, but I’m happy with it. Thanks for the help, Katy! (Dress details here, shoes: Nine West.)

I’m going to share a lot more photos from the photoshoot, and I’m definitely interested in what you like, but PLEASE don’t tell me “You should’ve used THAT ONE!” As my friends know, I agonized over the decision much more than a 27-year-old should, trust me!

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!

Ladies of LOST: Kate

And lastly in my Ladies of LOST series: What Kate Wore. (See what I did there?)

Needless to say, there will be *SPOILERS* ahead! I would highly recommend NOT reading further if you’re not caught up on the series. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Vintage John Locke welcomes you in…

dressed & reporting for duty

This is one of my favorite looks. I feel like a 1940s USO girl in it, and thus I call it my USO girl dress – I’ve got creativity for DAYS, I tell you!

Dress: OC by OC (size 12) purchased at TJ Maxx. No, those are not pleats in the front – it somehow did not lay flat in my closet and got a wee bit wrinkled. Yes, I decided to wear it anyway.

seeing red

In response to my last post (the results are pretty evenly spread out right now, so please go vote!), a few people got talking about colorful, hot heels – and Divadoll21285 and I discussed red shoes in particular. As I told her, for a while I became obsessed with the idea of red shoes, I think back in college. I didn’t have any, and it was my quest to get some. They are just bright and bold and strangely empowering. They add kick to any outfit and are, let’s face it, rather sexy.

I now own 4 pairs. Ahem.

But, like she said, you need different types of red heels for different occasions. It’s important! With that, I present you my red shoe collection…

from brunch to birthday party

Bit of a jam-packed weekend pour moi – so much so that, after shopping with my friend Sarah at Woodfield all day, I felt very unwell and crashed at 6:30 pm on a Sunday night. Well, it is now 1am and, wouldn’t you know, I’m awake. So a-blogging I will go!

Saturday was full of fun & friends. Meeting my friends John & Taurean for mimosas and brunch at Orange with a Peel, I went casual-cute in this:

I’ve already featured this top a few times, but I just love it. From Ann Taylor Loft, it’s colorful and comfy-soft, not to mention accented with rhinestones and ribbon around the neckline. Jeans: American Eagle, jacket: Mossimo. I ended up having the same issue with this jacket as the other day, however, so I had to ditch it.
