Wedding season is upon us! Even though I have been to a ton of weddings, every time I go to one, I still have to ask myself, “What should I wear?” When it comes to attending weddings, there are definitely some rules to follow – you want to look nice, but not outshine the bride. You want to dress for warm weather, but not be too skimpy. And then there are unsaid rules such as “never wear white to a wedding” (unless your white dress doesn’t really look white) and what about black? What’s the rule on wearing black? I don’t have the answer to all of these, but I will be providing some ideas so that hopefully it will make your decision easier next time you’re wondering, “What should I wear?”
I wanted to title this post something cheesy like “Darth Helmut”, but given that the world of Helmut Lang and Darth Vader don’t cross over too often, I decided not to. I recently got this Helmut Lang wrap skirt and fell in love the moment I put it on. It’s one of those skirts that you can dress up or down and way it’s draped in a way that would flatter anyone’s figure. Oh, and did I mention how comfortable and soft it is?
Happy Friday! Wearing one of my favorite tanks that just came back in stock – the “I Only Date Super Heroes” tank top! And coincidentally enough, I’m also wearing almost all Forever 21 clothes in this post. I may not be 21 anymore, but their clothes are seriously fun and soo affordable that I’d be surprised if there are any women out there who don’t own something from that store! But buyers be warned – you definitely have to be picky about what you buy there. T-shirts and tanks, definitely. Leggings, definitely. Jackets and pants, depends on the fabric and quality. Shoes? Maybe not. Unlike many stories I hear, I personally have never had anything “fall apart” on me or get “destroyed” in the wash, but then again, I am very picky about what I buy from there, so definitely be careful! That’s why they say, “you get what you pay for”!
Last week was practically a heat wave in the Bay Area! And even though I’ve been living in dresses, skirts, and floral for the past few weeks, it looks like it’s getting chilly again so it’s a perfect time to wear some of my lightweight sweaters. I’ve been loving this Joie Aimee sweater since it’s not only thin and lightweight, but it’s also made of Alpaca, which is warm like wool, but without the itch factor. If you have never tried on an Alpaca sweater, I highly recommend it as a great alternative to wool and cashmere!
The title says it all. Happy Star Wars Day! I love May 4th because it just gives you an excuse to re-watch your favorite Star Wars episode and wear your favorite Star Wars tee. Wait, I guess I do that every once in a while anyways. I guess it also gives you reasoning to be able to talk about Star Wars all day long and force your friends to listen to it. How about that? On top of that, what could be better than Star Wars day except that it happens to also be the same day as Free Comic Book Day! Amazing! The stars have aligned today and all is right in the universe. Of course I got my fix of both. What about you guys?
I would never have been caught dead in a dress when I was a kid. But of course things change and if you’ve read this blog for a while, I have plenty of dresses. One of my favorite things about wearing dresses is that you’re only dealing with one piece of clothing instead of multiple. There is less to worry about when it comes to pairing things with the outfit and it’s something you can easily throw on and go out the door. This Parker colorblock wrap dress is simple, elegant, work appropriate, and can go day to night depending on what you pair it with. Of course, I would definitely reserve these fun lightning bolt tights for more of a “going out” look, but I’ll let you be the judge. Happy Friday!
If there’s one thing about geeks, it’s that they love their fan art. One of my favorite things to check out at cons is the Artist Alley and you can guarantee that I will always come home with at least one new piece of art. But it doesn’t stop there. I was recently exploring Society6.com only to find that they now make printed pillow cases! So not only can you hang your geeky art, but you can cozy up to it on the couch. With that, I wanted to share a few of my favorite pieces of art that I’ve picked up from cons over the years as well as some fun ways to make your home more geeky!
