Sweet Cherry Pie

I love cherry everything.  My favorite snowball flavor is cherry (black cherry if they have it), my favorite pie flavor is cherry, and goodness knows if there is a cherry print anything I’m gonna want it in my closet.  Which was pretty much my exact reaction when I saw this sweet cherry shirtdress in Jaci Blue recently.

Golden Hours (ModCloth dress review)

Spring is finally here in Louisiana!  This year has been a lot different than usual because we’ve actually had a real honest-to-God spring, with cool nights and low humidity and warm days.  Typically, we only get like a week of that and then we roll right into 90% humidity and temperatures in the 80s-90s.  NO THANK YOU.  I’m determined to enjoy this weather as much as possible.

Abstract Flowers (ModCloth dress review)

After attending the 1920s Picnic back in November, I became pretty obsessed with adding some 1920s style into my wardrobe. My standard for vintage-inspired style for the past few years has been 1940s/1950s, but there’s something so – freeing? – about the looser silhouettes of the 1920s. That and sometimes during the warmer months, the idea of a fitted waistband plus shapewear just isn’t appealing at all. So off to Poshmark I went to find some 1920s-inspired styles. This Modcloth dress was one of the styles that I found on Poshmark, and it is definitely a looser, more flowy vibe. This dress was originally called the “Fiore Your Entertainment” dress on Modcloth, and even though it is no longer available, it can be found to pop up on Poshmark occasionally in assorted sizes. I fell in love with the abstract print – is it flowers? Is it splatters? It reminds […]

Stress Window Shopping: Vixen & La Femme En Noir

Last week was ROUGH, y’all.  I’m really trying my hardest not to buy any new clothes until after Labor Day, but it is HARD to not shop when I am stressed.  I did have to buy a pair of shorts – because my office does volunteer work once a month and I like to died this month wearing jeans – but it’s definitely not the same thing.  With all of the dress groups I follow on Facebook and Instagram, seeing so many gorgeous ladies wearing new styles, the temptation is REALLY REAL.  But I can window shop to my heart’s content, and I have so many pieces in my closet that I should wear instead!

A Queen Within: Adorned Archetypes at NOMA

Last year, when Mom and I visited the New Orleans Museum of Art for the Venice exhibit (and the Ferrari exhibition), I decided to go ahead and sign up for a membership to NOMA.  We tend to go a few times a year, and there are occasionally special events for members, so I figured it would be fun. And I was right. A few months ago, I got a press release from NOMA about their upcoming first-ever fashion exhibit, “A Queen Within: Adorned Archetypes”.  Not only was I excited about this exhibition because it was focused on fashion, but they would also have some Alexander McQueen ensembles there on display.  My favorite couture designer is Alexander McQueen, and the opportunity to see his pieces in person was something I could not pass up. I recieved an invitation from NOMA to view a preview of the collection the day before it […]

Dress A Day May – Week 1

Last month, lots of my Instagram pals participated in All Dress April (#AllDressApril), where they wore dresses for the entire month of April. I didn’t notice it until a week in, so I didn’t want to be late to the party. However, Yvette from the Trashy Diva fan group on Facebook mentioned she’d be doing Dress A Day May (#DressADayMay), and that piqued my interest. I’ve been feeling a little funky lately (which you can probably tell via my posts), so to try and get myself out of the same-old fashion funk I’ve been in, I decided to participate. So, here’s what I wore for the first week of #DressADayMay! Monday – I was sick at home, so no dress pic. I wore a nightgown, though. Does that count? LOL. Tuesday – Dress: Lady V London Lyra in paisley print This is one of what I call my “pajama dresses”. […]
