'I Will Speak Daggers to Her, But Use None'


So I'm back up and running with my new laptop. Gotta get used to it and the new photo editing tools, but when I do, I think I'll be all good with smashing my old laptop in a fit of PMS rage (long story). Anyhoo, I've learned my very expensive lesson and when this laptop begins to act up, I'll know better...

Took my white T.B.A. dress out for a spin. As soon as I stepped out of my door, a fresh (as in naughty) gust of wind carried it up right up over my head (well almost) flashing the BF my lady parts. Back in the house I went and added my sequin skirt.

Wanted to show off this Chanelesque blazer I picked up at L&T for a fraction of the original price only to have the sleeves rip at the seam a couple of days ago. PISSED AM I! Whatever happened to quality? Ugh. I do love the blazer though, so I'll be taking it to the cleaners to see if they can restitch the sleeves.

  8. I LOVE how you added the sequinned skirt to the look! It certainly adds more class to an already classy outfit. I'm hearing you about the quality of clothes these days. They're just not the same. There's a reason why vintage clothes are almost non-destructible... because they were truly made with quality (and polyester-ick).

  14. I love this look soooo much!!!!! I love that dress,it's so chic. Your jacket is an incredible piece but I think that's so bad that it's broken,hope you can get it fixed! The metallic heels and the sequinned skirt give the look some great depth and texture. Inspired by this look for sure :)

    Take care,Daniella xox

  41. I love that jacket but so sorry to hear the arm seam has come apart..... I totally agree that quality is just not really there in a lot of pieces anymore. I especially hate blended fabrics...nothing irks me more than polyester and cotton...

  42. So pretty !

  43. I had to chuckle a little when you said lady parts!
    I have a few dresses like that...Its because sometimes I shop in the Juniors/Teen section for dresses which seem to fit me well...But then I forget the length wasn't made for a woman......:)

    Adding the sequined skirt is a great idea! Im going to try different bottoms for skirts.

    PS this is a random question but I am looking for a great pair of denim shorts that dont pinch at the thighs (i.e no one wants to see a sausage roll)...any suggestions?

  44. I love your bouclé jacket and it's great combined with silver pumps!

  47. You are so funny with the wind experience and smart to add the sequin skirt. Love the jacket, too bad about the rip. I am sure it is fixable. Loving your pointy toe metallic heels too.
    Good luck with the new laptop. Did you get a Mac this time? I switched from a PC to a mac and it was a long learning curve but very happy now.
