Update

I haven't really posted in a while. I've been a mix of busy and not busy. I've been working and spending a ton of time on college applications. I have also been embroidering the skirt of this dress with seahorses and fish.

I'm excited that undersea stuff will be on trend in spring. Maybe I can a cool print like the one in this Mary Katrantzou dress and make a cool skirt or cropped pants.

Holiday Dresses

I don't think kids should have all the fun during the holiday season. Kids get to dress up and then when we turn into adults we don't take holiday dressing as seriously. I'm perpetually overdressed. Holidays are no exception. Here are some dresses that won't get you sent to the kids table.
I like to eat my weight in food at family functions. At Thanksgiving, the family member next to me unzipped her pants right at the table! Empire waists are wonderful because you can eat as much as you want and you will never need to unzip your pants. I like this
dress because of the unusual color.
This dress has great details. I love the pleated sleeve. The color is amazing.
Red velvet at Christmas is great because it is like Santa's suit. I love the bow on this dress.
Sometimes your extended family doesn't really talk to you so you may read a book. This
dress looks really comfortable therefore, it is great for reading.

Feather Guide

Today's gift guide is for the girl who thought "I'm like a bird" was about the need to be covered in feathers at all times.
I don't want to be hyperbolic but these Jimmy Choo's are the greatest shoes ever. There's something about purple and blue that looks wonderful. And the feathers have rhinestones! They would look great with anything.
Feather prints are great way to incorporate the fun of feathers without the fear of molting. I love the 70s secretary vibe of this Rachel Roy blouse.
This BHLDN skirt looks so fun to prance around in.I'd pair it with a smart blazer. It also comes in black. A dramatic jacket would look wonderful with jeans. If you want to be noticed the Roksanda Ilincic jacket is just the thing.
What do you think about feathers?

Adore Me Review

I received a lingerie set from Adore Me to review. When you sign up for Adore Me you get to take a fun style quiz. It's about ten questions and you pick the photos that describe your style the best. My showroom had a lot of variety; there were playful sets and some sexy sets. In addition to pairing you with lingerie, they also pick some slips,babydolls and stockings. If you don't like what is in the showroom you can always take the quiz again. I was deciding between this set and the one I picked. I loved the light color in this. This is my set. I didn't have any black underwear before this so it fills a void. It is super comfortable.The bra doesn't have a lot of padding. I like that because I don't need to be pushed up all the time. My favorite part is the hint of lace on top. I think it will be a great bra to wear any time and under sheer and semi sheer blouses.The underwear is different from my usual printed cotton pairs. The lace makes me feel girly and confident. I don't usually wear thongs but this one feels amazing.
Shipping was fast. I ordered Saturday night and received my package Wednesday.So it took 5 days. I loved the pink tissue paper in the packaging.

Lack of Color

I wore this to run some errands. I picked up some cookbooks at the library because I can't cook. Dress and bracelet-Vintage,Boots-Payless,Sunglasses-Marc By Marc Jacobs, Sweater and belt- New York and Company I picked up the belt and sweater on Black Friday. I saw my old science teacher and he told me that this outfit is less colorful than normal.

I wish I had a good crinoline to wear under dresses to make the shape look better but having no crinoline make the taffeta a bit more casual.
