May 29, Sunday

Hello All,

Just because I haven't posted lately doesn't mean that I haven't been thinking about you or that I haven't been endeavoring to make good fashion choices. It's just that I can't seem to find the right time or way to photograph my outfits.

Do you guys ever have issues with this?

My main issue maybe that I have only told one person that I'm doing this, and that was out of necessity (she found my outfit pictures).

How did you break it to your family that you were making a "fashion blog"?
Did you ever fear telling someone?
I guess my fear is that they'll think I'm not fashionable enough to do this.

it doesn't matter, I'm still afraid.

I will try to upload at least one outfit a week, that's a good starting goal, right? I thought so too.

Let me show you a few things I've been drooling and dreaming over...Dress-tined-to-Be-Together,
Dr Who Items, and Love Culture

What if the things that I love, don't fit into "my style"?

Can a person have more than one style?

I am struggling with staying true to myself and my own developed style which leans more towards classic, while still figuring out how to include wonderful pieces like this Octopus Necklace that I found and would LOVE to have.

The issue is, that I haven't yet found how to include and mesh my classic 50s pencil skirts with octopuses. It's an ongoing battle.

Any suggestions?

Do you have examples of classic/octopus type combinations working well together?

Leave me a comment.

I'll let you know how it goes.

May 19 Thursday

 Sometimes it's just a "men's wear" day. If I'm in the mood I may even throw on a tie.

May 18

In general I am a big fan of scarves.
Then again, I'm a big fan of army boots, yellow ruffles, and tights too.
Being a "big fan" doesn't always mean that I can pull a look off smoothly.

Anyway, back to scarves. I love them.
Up until this point I have had issues with figuring out how to wear them though!
I know what you're saying, "It's simple, just throw it around your neck!"
but life is never that simple for me.

I have collected many nice scarves over this past year, three from England when I was last there, and I still haven't been able to find a way to wear my favorite of the three out into public!
Such a shame.
But I do enjoy it as it sits in my closet.

When my friend recently came back from NY she was lovely enough to buy me a.... scarf!

She really is a sweetie-pie.

This scarf however, is different.

It's yellow. and I mean BRIGHT yellow.

Also, it's a little thinner than my other ones, which I appreciate because I dislike a bulky "gets-in-your-way" scarf.

So I am wearing it today, in honor of my bestie, Becky.

With some dark-wash jeans, a black shirt and a purple tank under that.
I'm lovin on this yellow "pop" going on.
I'll try to get you a picture later.


ps. Have you guys seen all of the wonderful fashion blogs that are out there?!
I'm overwhelmed!
