Second time is a charm

Whew! last week was KRAZY. Sneezing and coughing and earthquakes and RIOTING IN THE STREET. Thank Goddess that's over.

On to more important(and by that I mean less important) things:

I have worn this dress once before and I styled it ALL WRONG. It put me off of the poor thing. I put it on this morning with my past styling mistakes in mind and this is soooo much better.

P.S I love my glasses.

What I know for sure.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I now present to you-THE CUTEST JACKET OF ALL TIME:

I know this blog is just supposed to be about cute clothing but puttng this jacket on this morning reminded me of something fairly important. It reminded me that I am beautiful and unique and that I always have been. Duh.

The thing is, when you read/write fashion and style blogs, you are reminded daily that there is always someone more chic, more rich, happier, thinner, cooler and MORE STYLISH out there than you. Being reminded of this on a daily basis is sometimes hard. I started blogging because I wanted to show women that if they follow their instincts style just happens. Problem is, I think I have been spending too much time coveting other peoples style and STUFF. I will not be able to afford any Miu Miu platforms or Jessica Simpson clogs or Yoji Yamamoto jackets anytime soon. I never used to care about this.

I bought this little jacket at the goodwill for $1.25 a few months ago and once I got it home I resisted wearing it because I thought it wasn't 'fashiony' enough. I threw it on this morning on a whim and I feel GREAT. I feel like ME. I feel retro and girly and fun and STYLISH.

Just like I always have been.

So boys and girls, Today's lesson is be true to YOURSELF and pick and wear clothing that speaks to you. You will always look great.

A note about Tumblr. I LOVE it. It is really quite inspiration from a creative standpoint as well. You should all try it!

Should I stay or should I go?

I like this outfit. It's greater than the sum of it's parts.

These are my favorite pair of sandals. I have had them for years, they always look right and they are very comfortable. I love a wooden heel.

Onward and upward.

I'm not sure if anybody really reads this matter- I do really enjoy it.
BUT-I have to confess. I have found a new obsession:

Stay stylish!

Rapunzel, Rapunzel.....

I call bullshit on Spanx.

I know that everyone thinks they are the greatest thing ever but I have to say I think they make women's body's look rather fake and strange. For some reason I put some on underneath this dress today and really, all it did was make me feel weird and uncomfortable. It's not normal to be completely smooth from the waist down...their should be some jiggle....I am ready for this jelly.

I missed my super long hair.

"Standing at the bustop, suckin' on a lollipop...."

P.S. LL Cool J has obviously made some kind of deal with the devil.He has looked pretty muc the same for the past 20 years.

So them rings and things you sing about bring 'em out...

I used to wear TONS of rings all the time. One on each finger!

Funny story: I lost 110 lbs and none of them fit anymore!

I never got any new ones and I've only worn my wedding rings since. I've been spotting all kinds of amazing rings lately. I hit the jackpot yesterday and found a great clearance bin: 1.50 each! They'll probably turn my fingers green but.....

I loooove this. I don't know if you can tell but this clear stone is magnifying an awesome photo of PEACOCK FEATHERS!


No-I did not wear them all at once...although I may some day :)
