Swimsuit Season

I can’t believe it’s almost swimsuit season again.  Even if it’s not time to wear one, it’s certainly time to go shop for one.  Now, I don’t look like a swimsuit model, but even if I did I love retro styles too much to want your average triangle top bikini.  Now, that’s not to say Read More …

Border Prints – Ahead of the Curve

I was doing a little internet browsing on ModCloth, one of my favorite internet sites, when I suddenly realized how many skirts and dresses there were with border prints in their store.  I have to say that I was actually really surprised.  When I first decided to make my border print dress I had a Read More …

Styling the Taffy Blouse

I love this version of the taffy blouse with a pair of black skinny jeans and a black biker jacket.  With the black pumps and super cute sunglasses, all I’m missing is a cool vintage car, so I can be a greaser.

A Day in Makeup

I love makeup. It’s one of my very favorite things about being a girl.  So for this week’s Fashion Friday I’m going to tell you about some of my favorite products.  I’ve used all sorts of brands since I first started wearing makeup, and I’ve finally found products that I love to wear.  If I Read More …

Fashion Friday – Geek Chic

Going though my old Fashion Friday posts, I’ve noticed that I’m wearing a dress or a skirt in almost all of them.  Now, I do love a good dress, but I don’t always dress up.  I think it’s about time you see what I wear outside of the office (and sometimes in it).  Today’s Fashion Friday is Read More …
