Porcelain toile

So I’ve written about this dress here, but a very long time ago. I had it imprinted into my memory, after seeing someone else wear it online back in the early years of fashion/style blogging (I hunted down the image from 2007 here, on the Cherry Blossom Girl’s blog). Once I had seen it, I KNEW, I just knew it had to be mine. Once I found it, I loved it, wore it, and then never wore it again? I resurrected it on January 1st after many years of being in the back of the closet, as a motivation to give things another try (you may have seen the Instagram photo here). Too bad it’s a little too cold to show the whole beauty of this dress – bless those nude pantyhose keeping me warm.

I’m starting to fall in love with toile again!

Naughty or nice

I like the idea of one little change to an outfit that can transform the look. A little bow can go a long way – from sweet to sassy in one second. I was going to wear the bow look out to dinner, but decided it was too fussy in the end (my hair was already sort of wild this day). So I took it off and just fluffed my hair up a bit instead.

I also found these shoes again for a great deal! This pair fits a lot better than the other color I have, so I’m gonna try to wear these more often.

Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!

Dress: Theory (they release a version of this dress every year, it’s a classic keeper for sure). Shoes: Melissa x Vivienne Westwood (other colors HERE). Belt: Vintage. Twist scarf: American Apparel.

Happy Friday folks! I’ll be on the road again this weekend!

My tablet, my way

#spon: I’m required to disclose a relationship between my site and Intel. This could include the Intel Corporation providing us w/content, product, access or other forms of payment.

I’m really excited about today’s post! If you’ve been following my tablet life posts since the beginning (see all previous posts here), you’ll get an idea of how I’ve been integrating the tablet into my daily life. Intel gave some select people tablets (I think we all got different ones) back in early 2013 and the freedom to do whatever we wanted to do with them! It’s been really awesome to come home and tinker around with it most evenings, do blog work, listen to music, and my personal favorite READ BOOKS!

So with some help, I was able to shoot this video to share with you guys a quick zoom through of how I use the tablet! If you’re interested in specs about the tablet I use, the Acer Iconia w510, check it out on Amazon.

A touch of red

This red blazer is one of my favorite things to wear BUT, it’s also one of the damn hardest to fit into any outfit. I have had so many moments where I’ve wanted to wear it, but decide not to last minute because it doesn’t seem like the right thing to wear (we all do this with one thing or another right?!) But I’m feeling super confident about how this outfit turned out WITH the blazer! I have a lot going on, but I like it.

Blazer: mine is vintage Nordstrom thrifted, but you can get a similar one here by Trina Turk. Sweater: Alexander Wang, thrifted. Pants: JBrand. Boots: Boutique 9, on sale!! And partially purchased with my Shopbop credit (they’re one of my sponsors). Scarf: Madewell, from a few years ago. Purse: Botkier. Gloves: vintage.
