Black Velvet

So I’ve always been obsessed with velvet, it’s soft and warm, and allows for statement pieces that can easily be dressed down.  In this case, the black and the faux turtleneck make it a timeless piece to own, but the velvet gives it a romantic twist. I was looking and realized I own velvet dresses, […]

70s Meets Modern

Happy November my babes! I took a break for mental health reasons this past week and now I’m back and ready to power through the coming cold weather. If you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, please check out my blog post from Sunday for some tips that don’t involve medication. This jumpsuit is […]

Gloomy Days Ahead

  The winter absolutely kills me. I have depression, and when the sunshine is gone I also get SAD, or Seasonal Affectedness Disorder. People think it’s crazy, but living in Wisconsin has a serious effect on your mood and the moods of the people around you. I am not looking forward to this time of […]

Rose Duster

It was finally a cold day and I was able to bust out my duster! I’m kind of bummed though, because my shoulders are a bit broad so I can’t move my arms very well when wearing it, which means I can’t wear it to work.  So I may sell it on my Poshmark, and […]

Janitor’s Jumpsuit

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect unique jumpsuit, and then I finally found it at Anthropologie.  On the hanger it sort of looked like pajamas, but I was drawn in by the pattern which is reminiscent of a deck of cards, and decided to give it a chance, and I’m so glad I […]

Ya Burnt

I feel terribly stereotypical in this color, but I’m fine with it because I made it my own.  If burnt orange isn’t the most iconic of fall colors, I don’t know what is.  So finding this steal of a dress at St Vinny’s made my day.  I really just took the fall colors and ran […]

Polka Dot Peplum

Finding work looks can be really challenging.  You want it to be a balance between professional and your own style.  Some environments are much stricter than others in terms of acceptability.  Especially when it comes to having visible tattoos and colored hair. I have been very lucky to have jobs that allow both of those. […]

Velvet Joggers

I have a vendetta against denim at the moment.  With weight fluctuations coming up during the holidays, it’s hard to invest in a nice pair of jeans that won’t fit in a few weeks.  So I took the plunge and got these crushed velvet joggers, and it makes life so much better.  They’re perfect for […]

Embroider-me to Death

Nothing better than a dress you find on super sale! Anthropologie has this beauty marked down, plus had an additional 30% off. I had been eyeing this dress up forever, but didn’t want to pull the trigger, but I’m so glad I finally got it. This is a statement piece for the books. Not much […]
