Wonder Woman

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

One of my favorite things about Halloween is seeing how crafty people get - utilizing what we already have for cute costumes! (because sadly not all of us can spend $200 on fancy costumes

I purchased a couple sheets of glittery gold foam sheets and one red and then cut out a Wonder Woman logo, bracelets, stars, and a crown out of them! I glued the crown and cuffs together, then pinned the "W" on a red cardigan I have had for years (and you guys have seen a bunch on here)!

The red over the knee socks suggest Wondy's over the knee boots, and the only thing I had to really buy was the star shorts! How cute are they by the way…? It was a custom order from one of my favorite shops I'm Your Present and I adore them!

While this isn't cosplay worthy, I think it turned out super cute if you need a costume fast! What are you going to be for Halloween?

Samantha Pleet SS15 Lookbook

Friday, October 17, 2014


I didn't think I could love Samantha Pleet's designs any more - and then I saw the new SS15 collection…! Bubblegum walls, cotton candy carpet, and pastel fixtures surround the beautiful models decked out in scalloped yellow matching sets, denim bell bottoms, and swimsuits decorated in seashells.

My favorite pieces would have to be the blue matching set and dress above - that sheer overlay fabric with sparkles is nothing short of a dream come true and reminds me of the blue fairy in Disney's Pinocchio *__*

I hope you have a great weekend! <3

My Favorite Novelty Bags

Friday, October 10, 2014


JUMP FROM PAPER BACKPACK *, VINTAGE SHELL PURSE (GIFT FROM MARLENA), MODCLOTH ICE CREAM PURSE, CAT NOVELTY PURSE FROM LOOKBOOK STORE *, ALDO CONVERSATION HEART PURSE, GOLD SHELL BAG FROM SWAYCHIC *, SILVER SHELL BAG FROM MODCLOTH (OLD), RED LIPS PURSE (GIFT FROM MARLENA), CLOUD PRINT KLING PURSE *

As you can see, I'm kinda obsessed with novelty bags! I'm always drawn to exaggerated shapes, food themes, and colorful designs - and there are so many amazing purses that feature just that! Here is some of my very favorites in my collection.

This Jump From Paper backpack is from their new PINK collection - and I'm in love with each one! The backpack stood out to me in particular because I don't have any backpacks, and just look at it! It's quite roomy and definitely a conversation starter - perfection *__*

My ice cream purse from Modcloth might just be my favorite bag ever. You all know ice cream is one of my very favorite things in the world so the minute I saw it, I knew I needed it ;__;

I put a bunch of novelty purses I have on my wish list in the widget below - including this this Kling popcorn bag (Kling always has such amazing accessories) and this donut purse from ASOS!

Do you have any novelty purses? :*

Spooky by Berta Pfirsich for Ruby Star

Wednesday, October 8, 2014


This August I was reunited with Berta Pfirsich to shoot an editorial wearing Kling clothing for Ruby Star magazine!

I love Berta's work because so much of it looks and feels spontaneous and in the moment - like you are witnessing a private moment between friends! I think Berta has the ability to draw that out of people, she is extremely charming, laid back, and always has a twinkle in her eye - which makes her a joy to work with!

We shot these at her cute apartment (where I met her darling cat Klaus!), a cafe where we ate yogurt parfaits, and in front of a pink house (can I live there please?)!

As you know, I'm pretty smitten with Kling's clothing so it was so much fun to dress up in their upcoming winter collection! I will be sure to let you guys know when it's released - I'm in love with the fluffy pink jumper and navy collar dress! It's also extremely exciting to be published in Ruby Star - a magazine I have admired for the beautiful editorials and amazing photographers they spotlight since I discovered it earlier this year!

You can view the feature online HERE <3 ps, online there was a misprint and the model is listed as somebody else, but I assure you that's me! haha :')

Witchy

Monday, October 6, 2014


DRESS: Pop Boutique at ASOS (similar) SOCKS:Sock It To Me HAIR CLIP:Hair Dessert
BAG:Sun Jellies SHOES: Forever 21 SUNGLASSES: Forever 21 (sold out, similar 1 & 2)

You might not know this, since I am always dressed in ensembles that call to mind Technicolor throw up, but I actually really love black clothing too!

This dress has a distinctly witchy, Wednesday Adams vibe - and though I feel like those type of dresses have been cropping up everywhere lately, the empire waist detailing really made it stand out to me! When I hear "empire waist" I usually think of renaissance era dresses with pillowing skirts (which are lovely for the time period but not exactly something I would personally wear…!), so the fact this dress has a subtle empire waist but still manages to have a fit and flare silhouette really intrigued me. I was extremely impressed with the fit and absolutely love the dress! It's currently sold out, but keep your eye on the product page - ASOS has a habit of relisting pieces people have returned…! (which is how I got mine!) *___*

I paired it with pops of pink in the form of my accessories: a darling heart clip by Hair Dessert being one of them! I am so obsessed with Aiyana's designs - they are so so cute and well crafted!

As for my socks, is this not one of the cutest prints you've ever seen?! Cats, in cameos! Adorable! Finally, my bag was sent to me by Sun Jellies - it is incredibly roomy and lightweight - I'm smitten!

PLAYSUIT: ASOS ROLLER SKATES: Moxi @ Urban Outfitters
RING:Tiny Hands Jewelry PURSE:SwayChic SOCKS: American Apparel
NECKLACE:Mod Dolly (old) SUNGLASSES: ASOS

Finally! A ridiculously belated outfit post, and one that just so happens to be my favorite thing to wear as of late! I stalked the product page for this darling ASOS playsuit for months as it was discounted from $80+ to $23 - score! It reminds me of those adorable little tap dancing outfits ladies in 1930s musicals wear, and it incorporates two of my favorite elements: the color pink and a sailor collar!


I wore it with my dream pair of pink roller skates by Moxi, a holographic gold seashell purse SwayChic was kind enough to send me, and this darling ice cream ring by Tiny Hands Jewelry!


Rolling around on pink roller skates at the local park caused quite the stir, not surprisingly…! Shockingly, though, people actually stopped to compliment my outfit (as opposed to the usual blank and incredulous stares I usually get…) which totally made my day!
