Hey Guys & Dolls!
Blue and Silver is such a great combination for holiday parties! It’s a great alternative to red and green, which while festive can look a little “been there, done that”. This dress is interesting because you get arm-coverage for those of you concerned with showing your upper arms, and you could also wear tights like I did in the Holiday Go-Lightly look, or go bare like I did here. Note- this was hella cold, so maybe tights are a better idea. The silhouette the dress creates with the sweetheart neckline and the flared shirt and so flattering, and while it’s short, it has enough weight to lay-down so I didn’t feel exposed- I even walk back up my stairs at the end of the video and you can’t see my bum!

Hi Guys & Dolls!
I have been planning this look for a LONG time. I’ve been wanting to do this type of video for at least 2 years, and here it is!! I feel cleansed, I feel happy. I feel tired, lol. One thing I love about all my Halloween videos this year is that I’m using elements from my own everyday wardrobe into the costumes- with this it’s my boots, a camisole and my leggings. The Top Hat and Wig I’ve had for a long time and I have to tell you- this wig SUCKS! I mean, it looks great and all, but it’s too shiny, which could be taken care of with a little baby powder, but it’s SO itchy. I tore it off my head the second I was done with this. You’ll also remember this corset from my Victorian Lolita look- the funny thing is this look was conceptualized first, but the Victorian one came first because I’m uploading them in chronological order based on the era of influence.

Hi Guys & Dolls!
A few weeks back I was approached by Evans to do a review of their new swimsuit line. At first I was hesitant, because as much as I’m all for empowerment, and self-acceptance, I’m just not comfortable being stripped down to just a bathing suit on the internet. Even those of us with mucho confidence sometimes want to keep something private. At least for now. Super sexy, and fabulous plus size models like Tess Munster post is swimsuits and lingerie all the time, and inspire me to say “to hell with it”
but I’m just not quite there yet. I was relieved when the rep from Evans assured me they only wanted an honest review! Read more

Hey Guys & Dolls!
Lately I’ve noticed that there are nautical inspired items everywhere, and as a lover of Americana and Retro Style, I’m loving it! It seems like everywhere there are Navy & White striped clothing, Anchor jewelry, even Hello Kitty has donned a Sailor Suit! Another thing popping up just about everywhere is Polka Dots. As a life-long member of the I LOVE EVERYTHING POLKA DOT club, I’m a happy camper & I’ve been shopping like crazy, scooping up all the cuteness.
An outfit like this one is simple- really it’s just a t-shirt and jeans. But it’s the little details- Polka dot denim, Hello Kitty in a Sailor Outfit, Leopard Flats, than make it feel playful, and in turn, makes me feel playful! I know there are a gratuitous number of photos featuring the jeans, but it’s not everyday you find polka dot jeans- much less ones that fit you so well. Seriously, Check these ones versus the Poppy Red Cropped ones in look 2. They are the same brand, same size, but a different cut/fabric. These fit like they were cut for me. LOVE! I also HAVE to take moment to self-congratulate- the squats, though freaking painful, are paying off in the booty-department. Motivation! Read more
