WIW - Those paint splattered jeans + safety pins and creepers :D

Hello again! In a couple of hours i am headed up to Como Zoo with the family to check out the Japanese Lantern Lighting Festival they are having! I'm excited as i've never been before and it looks like a lot of fun. Hopefully i'll remember my camera and can get some good pictures!

I made this tshirt a couple years back inspired by a Balmain shirt that was covered in safety pins. I still really like the look so i decided to break it out again today. I also like to layer a lace top underneath but i couldn't wear my lace bodysuit because it gave me horrible VPLs with these pants. Guess i should pick up just a regular lace tank.

I felt like there was a lot of edgy going on in this outfit so i curled my hair, threw on a headband and added a pretty lip to bring back the cute a bit. ;)

Thanks for looking! Hope you're all having a great weekend!

WIW - leather, burgundy and lace!

Worn to work! Whenever i wore this...this past Monday or Wednesday i think - it felt like a fall day! Pretty exciting after months and months of 90s. I'm sure summer isn't done with us yet but it was fun to be able to break out some fall clothes earlier than expected!

Also, i have a question. Why does one color have so many names? Burgundy, Maroon, Wine, Cranberry. And then there's Claret and Oxblood but i *think* claret is lighter than burgundy and oxblood is darker. Or am i wrong? It makes internet searching for this specific color a little difficult. And then there are some retailers just labeling it as "red". Not helpful.

Well whatever you want to call it, this is one of my favorite shades to wear and i know i'm going to be filling my closet up with it all fall and winter long. I said on my blog that at the end of winter i should do a joke post in which i wear all of the items i've accumulated in this color in one outfit. But i already have two pairs of burgundy shoes so that might be rather difficult. :D

Thanks for reading/looking!

WIW - my MOTG ;)

Yesterday after work i needed to go out and grab a few finishing touches for our new bathroom and i had my son with me, thus, a mom on the go look was born!

Since i had a lot of tough elements going on already i thought it would be fun to contrast with more classic, ladylike flats instead of my normal go-to boots.

And i was having the worst hair day ever so by 5:00pm i couldn't take it anymore and just threw it up in a ponytail. ;)

Thanks for looking!

ETA: apparently a faux leather vest is a lot tougher than a faux leather jacket. We went to visit my husband at his job as well and he said after i left several men asked him if i drove a bike. XD

WIW catch up (pic heeeeavy @_@)

Hi guys! Trying to play a bit of forum catch up today and see what everyone's up to! I just got back from Chicago for Lollapalooza last weekend and it was a super fun time. Other than that i've been trying to avoid too much shopping temptation as we are in the final stages of finishing the basement and are going to need furniture and carpet and fun decor!


Pic 1-2: Worn to work. Still love suspenders. Still trying to move in my "goth-lite" direction. ;)

Pic 3-4: Weekend look. Was inspired by a Rockabilly hairstyle on YouTube I tried to recreate here so i thought a rockabilly type look (i think?) would be kind of fun as well.

Pic 5-6: Casual friday. I was really against pairing this jacket with this dress for a long time. It seems too obvious and too...."girls just wanna have fun" but apparently i got over it because here they are together.

Pic 7: Weekend. Worn for my son's 6th bday party!

Pic 8: Work. I believe this is when it started to cool down a bit outside. yay for layering!

Pic 9-10: Worn to work. I did a slight "Black Swan" inspired theme. :D And i'm so, so, in love with these shoes right now. Random find on Ebay that was obviously meant to be.

Pic 11-12: Worn today! It's another gloriously cooler day out so i got to wear these leggings i love with this Patterson J Kincaid asymmetrical tunic i scored on Ebay as well. I don't know if this brand runs big but when i got this it seemed huge. I had to shorten the straps quiiiiiiite a bit. Perfect now though!

Thanks for looking! All comments are welcome!
