  • Re-Stringing the Pearls

    Re-Stringing the Pearls

    So for Thanksgiving I went with my boyfriend and his entire extended family to a fancy fancy restaurant.  Can you say nervous?  And you know me, I would LIVE in sweatpants if I could.  Getting fancy happens once in a very, very, very rare occurrence.  But I donned an all-black ensemble and topped it off…

    Chain Mail

    I love questionnaires! I found this one courtesy, once again, of Angie from Lariats and Lavender, which is a blog I’ve been a fan of for a long time!, who found it from Kyla at Kyla is Inspired, which is a blog I just discovered and is really lovely!!! 1.  Song you can’t get out…

    Blogtember #14: The Pants Problem

    I believe you’ll know if it’s true love or not if you find yourself thinking all day about getting home to that special someone. Or some-thing. And I may have found true love. I bought these sweatpants from Kmart on Friday, September 6th.  And they have taken over my world.  All day at work, all…

  • Blogtember #12:  The September Issue

    Blogtember #12: The September Issue

    Today’s Blogtember prompt calls for “only photos.”  I wanted to get a little meta with it:  take photos of photos. See, my friend Matt and I always get together in the beginning of the fall to share Pumpkin Spice Frapps and ogle the September issues of the big fashion magazines.  And then he moved away. …

  • Doctor Who / Tom Baker Scarf !!!

    Doctor Who / Tom Baker Scarf !!!

    Yes, remember a few weeks ago when I started earnestly tackling the most daunting nerd project of all – the infamous Tom Baker scarf?  Ten feet long, it is now FINISHED!  Proving that you never know what you can accomplish until you start! I used this pattern, found on Pinterest, courtesy of the awesome Tara…

    Currently…in September 2013

    New bang trim…what do we think??? Feeling:  EXCITED!  Fall is my favourite season!  I adore Halloween.  New York Comic Con is just around the corner.  And I count the days until my first Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks! Watching:  Classic Doctor Who.  I keep returning to it because it has such heart and so much…

  • If I Had to Guess…

    “I like your shirt,” I told my customer.  “Where did you get it?” “Guess.” I paused. “I don’t know, it’s really pretty though.” “No, guess.” “I honestly wouldn’t even begin to know where you got that shirt from, I’m sorry. “It’s from Guess.” Classic.

  • I Am Supergirl !!!

    I Am Supergirl !!!

    There used to be a saying.  It went a little something like this:  “If a tree falls in the woods and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” Now, I think we should change the saying:  “If a blogger wears a cute outfit, and doesn’t do an outfit post about it,…

  • Skulls and Roses

    Skulls and Roses

    Clutch your pearls and reach for the smelling salts, I’m doing an outfit post. Everybody liked this dress so much when I posted about it on Sunday Social/Instagram, I’m afraid it’s become a runaway hit.  I try to save it for special occasions. Like my bracelet?  I made it!  I’ve been just slightly obsessed with…

    Summer 2013 To-Do List – Punk: Chaos to Couture

    First of all, apologies in advance, but there is no photography allowed in the Punk:  Chaos to Couture exhibit at the Met.  So you’ll have to be satisfied by my wordy review and thie picture of me awkwardly posing on the stepladder in my apartment using a self-timer on my phone to take pictures of…

  • Don’t Get It Twisted

    This one time, I nearly had a heart attack. I was at work, doing my thing, when I suddenly became aware of an acute, piercing pain directly over my heart on my breastbone.  It hurt so much I couldn’t breathe.  I started to launch into self-calming mode:  I started to talk softer, took deep breaths,…

  • Summer 2013 To-Do List

    Summer 2013 To-Do List

    Ever since the weather started getting warmer (then colder, then HOTTER, then COLDER again and then finally HOT), I’ve been keeping a list of things I want to do this summer.  Some I’ve never done, some are limited time only, and some I’ve been meaning to get to for years.  I can’t wait to get…

    Call It A Talent

    Today’s Blog Every Day prompt is to sell yourself in 10 words or less.  I did it in 9.  I know I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating:

  • Don’t Try to Copy My Swagga

    Don’t Try to Copy My Swagga

    Dear Sir, I appreciate your look.  Belted cinched fur coat, dirty Chuck Taylors, slouchy disaffected glare. I liked it even better when I WORE IT FIRST. Thanks ever so. Love, The Original Fierce Gangsta

  • For the Love of Eyeliner

    For the Love of Eyeliner

    …and I usually wear even more than this on a daily basis. So, clearly, I love eyeliner.  And lately, perhaps too much!  I’ve been double-lining my eyes – two colours at once!  Sure, the compliments I get are nice, and I would never reveal that secret for profit (or would I?) and each of my…

    Unofficial New Year’s Resolutions

    Late to the party?    I don’t like making New Year’s Resolutions because they’re so hard to keep!  And I especially don’t like telling people about them because then I’m held accountable.  Still, I have had a few New Year’s Resolutions in the back of my mind for the past month and thought to share them. …

  • 30DHN:  Style Inspiration for the Season

    30DHN: Style Inspiration for the Season

    This fall/winter, as indeed every fall/winter, I start to get a little discontent. The cold makes me angry.  Layers upon layers of warm clothing needed to survive out in the windy streets feels like body armor.  Hunching your shoulders around your ears against the cold feels like the shrug of a malcontent.  And my fall/winter…

  • Cuz I’m A Winner

    Cuz I’m A Winner

    True story. Whilst walking with my new roomie from BB&B (Bed, Bath, & Beyond) to DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse) on the UWS (Upper West Side), we came across a mobile makeover station.  New roomie wanted to get a mini makeover, so we chowed on lollipops (the candy, I can’t escape it!) and chatted with other…

Yes, about two years ago, I was flying to London following the terrible volcanoes in Iceland.  The weather was horrible.  Flights were getting delayed and cancelled all over.  I had already…
