Let’s talk vampires. Because if there’s one thing I can talk about, it’s vampires. Vampires were my first real foray into the goth scene in high school (thanks, Anne Rice’s Queen of the Damned). I met most of my college friends through playing live action Vampire: The Masquerade for YEARS – way into my 20s. Hell, I met Doug at a Vampire LARP.
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.
Hi, my name is Karen, and I am obsessed with floral prints. I’ve tried to deny it for many years now, but I must admit after looking in my closet – I have WAY too many floral print dresses. And I’m pretty sure I’m not going to stop buying them.
I’m not sure how to say it other than just coming out and saying it, so… I lost my job at the end of March. 😞 The business I worked for had some cutbacks and I was one of the people that were let go.
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.
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 […]
Hey everyone! It’s been a rough few months. A lot of things have been happening in my personal life that has kept me from blogging (more on that in a future post). But I’m ready for 2019 to be the year I really focus on my creative endeavors, and blogging is going to be one of them! I’ve really been ignoring writing for a long time, and I really need to get back into it. It’s a great outlet, and I feel accomplished when something is completed. I feel like this winter has been a really funky one here in Louisiana. Over the holidays, it was very grey and dreary, and I feel like we’ve had a lot of rain and generally funky weather (not as bad as up north – I can’t even comprehend that level of cold). So when Trashy Diva released their latest print, Tropical Nights, I […]
