Well hearty hello to you all, I hope you’ve all had a good week. Today on the blog I have Pt 2. of my Lil Lou Lou feature. If you already read Pt 1 then you know it was love at first sight for me and this stellar brand. Seriously this company is everything I love; wonderful designs, quality construction, friendly service, and USA manufactured goods. Bandana: Lil Lou Lou Oh so darling yet oh so sturdy. The Rosie bandana is made from 100% cotton and has been sewn and hemmed in such a way that it wont wrinkle and crumple like traditional bandanas so often do. Basically it is the perfect headwrap for a girl who doesn’t want to spend ages trying to get her “rosie” do just right, you seriously just throw it on and voila, adorable hair! Blouse: H&M/Similar Jeans: Old Navy Flats: Payless/Similar Sunglasses: Unique Vintage Blouse: Ann Taylor/Similar Belt: Vintage/Similar Skirt: Lil Lou Lou to put it simply this skirt completes me. I just cannot get over how much fabric there is, anyone who knows me knows I love a full skirt and believe you me Lil lou lou delivers. One thing Lil Lou lou also delivered was a novelty print I actually love, usually novelty prints just look too sloppy or childish for me to get on board with them, but this skirt has made me a believer in beautiful and fun novelty prints. First off its blue…and for some reason most of my favorite pinup pieces are blue, and the undergarment advertisements that make up the print add just the perfect amount of sass for me. Like I said before this skirt completes me. Flats: Payless/Similar I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you get yourself some fabulous goodies from Lil lou lou! Happy Friday my dears.

Fashion Friday Featuring Desi Roo Clothing
Hey guys I am rather excited to share a fabulous find with you all this week. Whilst surfing through etsy (like one does) I came across the fabulous Desi Roo Clothing, not only are there beautiful accessories to choose from, but all of the blouses offered are so incredibly lovely!
What I especially loved is that a lot of the tops are made from vintage fabric but the blouse itself is new, so there won’t be the hassles that come along with pure vintage pieces like rips, fragility, and mysterious smells/stains. There are a few variations of blouse structure offered: cotton tie shoulder top, flirty puff sleeve wrap back blouse, and the 1940’s puff sleeve wrap back, plus all the prints and fabrics offered are too numerous and outrageously beautiful to name, if there is a particular color or print you happen to be fond of I bet you can find it. I could honestly buy one in every print and have the most perfect wardrobe that ever was. Oh and another great thing about Desi Roo is that if there is a top you like that just happens to be too large it can be altered for a better fit for only $15!
Basically its impossible for me to remain serious 😉
Earrings: Desi Roo Clothing all the beauty of actual Bakelite but none of the potential lead poisoning. I mean who wouldn’t want to don a pair of pastel chrysanthemum earrings?
Blouse: Desi Roo Clothing I love love LOOOVE this blouse! Its just as comfortable as a T-shirt but worlds more stylish. Whether your personal style is that of a vintage inspiration or you’re simply a woman who appreciate a well made spectacular fitting top that can be worn from errands, to the office, and then to a night on the town, then this little number is for you! The fabric is sturdy, doesn’t wrinkle easily, and the fit is superb! Just follow the size chart and you’re good as gold. My measurments are 36″ 27.5″ 36″ and the medium is a perfect fit yay! It can be difficult to look stylish during the warmer months but this blouse was made for spring and summer! The sleeves sit just off the shoulders for a feminine and stylish look that will keep you cool but won’t sacrifice on style!
Pencil Skirt: H&M
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check Desi Roo Clothing out! Happy Friday love you all.
Fashion Friday Featuring Punkabilly
This week’s Fashion Friday will be featuring Punkabilly Clothing. Punkabilly is the result of Tom, a man with a passion for punk rock and rockabilly, meeting Naomi, a highly rated model scout who had always dreamt of becoming a fashion designer. Someone who understands the punk/rockabilly culture and someone who truly understands fashion? A match made in heaven if you ask me. They’re based out of Bangkok Thailand and ship their products worldwide, in fact you get free shipping when you purchase $100 worth of pieces, and let me tell you $100 will get you pretty far. One of the problems I run into with dressing the way I do is that the pinup/rockabilly style can get very expensive! Punkabilly has fabulous prices but doesn’t skimp on quality. My dress is 95% cotton 5% spandex making it sturdy, but comfortable enough to wear for everyday occasions. I actually wore this for Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve, so comfort was pretty important. My measurements are 36″ 27 1/2″ 36″ so I got a size large, and it is a perfect fit, so I’d say they remain true to size. I know how that can always be a bit of a gamble when purchasing items online, so no need for worry here.
Flower Hair Clip Got it at a craft fair but Claires has a great option http://www.claires.com/store/us/goods/hair/cat1260200/barrettes+%26+clips/p65480/glitter+edge+flower+clip/

Fashion Friday Silly and Sassy
I have every intention of taking nice editorial type pictures, but let’s face it I’m far too silly for all that. So I hope you guys enjoy this week’s Fashion Friday. For some reason I was feeling particularly sassy and it certainly shows in the pictures.
So much silly dancing!All that sassTop: Old Navy I bought it on clearance so of course they don’t have it, but Forever 21 has a similar shirt http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?Br=F21&Category=top&ProductID=2073956663&VariantID=
Skirt: Cotton On. You guys I am sorry I never have the link to the exact thing I’m wearing but I am a clearance shopper, so what am I to do? Same skirt different print http://us.cottonon.com/shop/product/jeanie-flippy-skirt-black/
Hope you all liked this post and that you have a fabulous weekend.
Repeating outfits is something I am guilty of all the time, I’m not sure if its out of laziness or lack of clothes, either reason I don’t really care. Anyway here is a look of an outfit I wore while I was out of town on a roadtrip. I wanted to be comfortable but I didn’t want to look like a slob either. I think this outfit has the perfect comfort to style ratio.
we have fun during our shoots
Now if you’re not too concerned with comfort and you’re not going to be jumping around 😉 you can always opt for a pair of killer heels.These are my “sitting shoes”I hope you all enjoyed this look and have a wonderful weekend.
Earrings: Claires http://www.claires.com/store/us/goods/jewelry/cat1260134/hoops/p86948/enamel+hoop+earrings/
Blouse: It’s a hand-me-down from my brother actually, just goes to show you don’t always have to stick with the ladies department. Guys have some pretty cute clothes too. Here is a similar shirt at forever 21 http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=21MEN&Category=m_shirts&ProductID=2000112078&VariantID=

Fashion Friday Can It Be Fall Already?
Is everyone else dying for it to be fall already or is it just me? I want to layer, wear boots, and hats. But alas I live in Texas and it is only now starting to be bearable, that means around 90 degrees for those of you who don’t live here. So here is my best attempt at a fall look that wont result in a heatstroke.
clearly the whole wearing a cardigan thing didn’t last long.
Headband: Fished it out of one of my ribbon nick knack bins. But this headband from Forever 21 is similar http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=hair-accessories-headbands&ProductID=1030188061&VariantID=
Cardigan: Old Navy I bought is a few winters ago so they don’t have exactly the same one but they have some really great cardis regardless http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?vid=1&pid=638142002
Dress: Cotton On bought it on sale so the print I’m wearing is not on their site but they always have this cut of dress, which I am thrilled about.http://us.cottonon.com/shop/product/jenny-dress-blue-foulard/
Flats: Payless. Another purchase that happened a while back but they have similar flats nonetheless http://www.payless.com/store/product/detail.jsp?catId=cat10088&subCatId=cat10276&skuId=132563080&productId=69922&lotId=132563&category=&catdisplayName=Womens
Hope you all enjoyed this Fashion Friday and that you have a wonderful weekend.
