Fashion Friday Featuring AC Clothing Pt 1.

Yes! Week 3 and I still haven’t dropped the ball on blogging! Haha I have to admit though I almost didn’t make it, I didn’t know what I was gonna post about, but hallelujah my parcel from Apostolic Clothing showed up just in time for me to crank out a shoot and a review.

Apostolic Clothing was founded on the principle of  providing fun and fashionable modest pieces. In a world or extremes it can often be hard to find clothing that is modest without it looking like a gunny sack as well as finding clothes that are on trend but still leave a little to the imagination. So coming across AC is like breathing in a breath of fresh air. You can read more about the beliefs and principles of the company here.

Now onto the fun bit! PICTURES!

Blouse: H&M

Skirt: Apostolic Clothing Can we just take a minute to appreciate how fun the print of this skirt is? I absolutely adore the pattern just the right amount of quirky and feminine. The cotton/poly blended material itself feels very sturdy no flimsy tissue paper skirt here, and the size chart is very accurate, I’d suggest though if you do fall between sizes to size up. My waist measures 27.5 inches and the medium is precisely for that measurement, so there’s not really any wiggle room there, so just keep that in mind whilst ordering. All in all I am incredibly happy with my new skirt and I have a feeling I will be getting a lot of wear out of this fun little number.

Shoes: Restricted Footwear

I hope you all enjoyed this post, that you check out Apostolic Clothing, and that you keep an eye out for Pt 2 of this feature. Til then happy Friday my lovelies.

Fashion Friday Get’s White Hot With Unique Vintage

Bonjour! How are you all doing? Thankfully it hasn’t been as long since we’ve spoken last, I really am going to try and keep with my posting schedule, but I can’t make any promises 😉

This week I am featuring Unique Vintage yet again… Yes I know I do a lot of features of UV clothes but I haven’t heard any complaints, and if I do…well I can’t say I’d care. I adore my UV Darlings!

Hair Flower: A lovely handmade gift from Miss Amy May

Dress: Unique Vintage God bless the person who constructed this white cotton masterpiece. I can’t recall the last time I wore a dress that has made me as happy as this one. I can honestly say that I would be more than happy to get married in this dress (of course that’s not happening anytime soon haha) but seriously that’s just how beautiful I feel in this number. The bodice is slightly structured so no weird lumps and bumps from floppy fabric, and of course since its haltered you can adjust to your specification, The fit is so spot on, it basically feels like I custom fit. I think this might be one of the most flattering silhouettes I’ve ever worn, even with my less than average proportions the size chart was incredibly accurate. Now talking about sizing here comes the sad news, I snagged this number during a sale and as everyone knows dresses that go on sale always run out of sizes so right now they only have medium 😦 but the good news is its still on sale for $50 so if medium is your size by all means snatch this dress while you still can! Also you ladies who are not medium don’t think for one second I’m neglecting you, I think this dress could make an excellent substitution.

Shoes: Miz Mooz/Similar

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check out Unique Vintage. Happy Friday my loves!

Fashion Friday Featuring Olan Rogers Supply

Hello my darlings welcome to the weekend. As some of you may know I had the incredible opportunity to model with the Olan Rogers Supply team this spring, and I must say I had an absolute blast. I already loved this brand but after getting to know everyone involved my love and respect for them has become tenfold. I’ve never met a nicer group of hilarious and insanely hardworking people in my life. This team is so determined to give their all and present you guys with the absolute best products possible. Long hours, sweat, and even some tears go into every new line these guys put out. Yes the designs are beyond awesome and the shirts are softer than baby blankets made from a cotton candy and fabric softener blend, but its knowing that you’re repping a brand that cares so deeply about their customers that makes this so special.

The new Spring line was completely inspired by films that basically served as mile markers through Olan’s life. It really is the story behind the story that’s always the most interesting, so I say give Olan’s inside look into the inspiration for this new line a read so you can fully appreciate how killer these new designs are.

Fashion Friday Featuring Tattify

Hey guys sorry I’ve been MIA for a few weeks but life got a bit crazy…and by “a bit crazy” I actually mean my life should’ve been checked into a psych ward crazy 😉 But anyway I am back and finally have a fashion friday to share with you all. This week I am featuring the godsend of a company that is Tattify. If you’re anything like me you’d love nothing more than to be a tattooed badass…but you’re not quite ready to make that leap just yet. This where Tattify comes in to help, they have a myriad of temporary tattoos to choose from sure to suit all tastes. But if you want to be sporting something no one else is or tattify doesn’t have the design you want you can send in a design and get a custom piece! They also have nail art and metallic tattoos so they’ve got you covered on all bases really. 8020PicMonkey CollageI of course went the nerdy route and got Doctor Who themed tattoos.81198193812681047971“Are you afraid of the big bad wolf?”

Earrings: Payless/Similar

Tattoos: Tattify First off I love the designs, was thrilled with how realistic these tattoos looked, some temporary tattoos are too shiny to look real, my highly sensitive skin had no reaction praise the lord, and the price is highly affordable at $5 for two duplicate designs or $15 for a full set. I will say that the Bad Wolf tattoo wore off really quickly…but I think that had to do with where it was placed more than anything, because Allons-y lasted a few days. So all in all I am very pleased, and I will probably continue purchasing from Tattify til I take the leap and get real tattoos 😉

I hope you all enjoyed this post and check Tattify out, and if you do be sure to let me know what design you get! I love hearing from you guys. Happy Friday.

Restricted Shoes Holiday Look

Closer than ever to Christmas now. So cannot believe it, and sadly this is my last Restricted inspired Holiday Outfit to share. But we’re going out with a bang. Like I said in my last post Restricted and I want to make sure that Christmas spending money you get goes a little further, simply use the discount code SF40 for 40% off sitewide now through January 31st.

I cannot tell you how excited I was to share this look with you all, its a culmination of everything I love, glamorous, but not over the top, detail oriented, and amazingly incredibly comfortable. Seriously I’m itching to wear this outfit again…perhaps for New Years?

I’m never taking them off, and if you know me at all that’s quite a statement, I’m usually the first girl to ditch her heels and brave it barefooted. But Restricted knocked it out of the park with these. So if you’re hunting for the perfect pair of heels pick the Doreens you wont be sorry!

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas full of friends, family, food, fun, and of course fashion! XOXO

 

Olan Roger’s Apparel: Fall Line Feature

Hey guys and dolls I’m so thrilled to be sharing this feature with all of you. As you probably know I’m a huge fan of Olan Rogers and Olan Rogers Apparel, but to be featuring pieces from the new fall line is extra special. Not only are the designs absolutely amazing, but the story behind them is something else entirely. Anyone who watches Olan’s videos knows this man is a complete and utter goof. Honestly its like watching a really large, happy, sugar high child tell a story. But it turns out behind all the hilarity Olan was having a really tough year. Like a lay awake at night have your troubles eat at you, tough year. However, instead of letting all the set backs and frustrations trap him, Olan channeled all that stress and negativity to create what I think to be his strongest line yet.

The entire fall line is about Going to War and not letting life knock you out. That’s definitely something I wanted to support. Because its something I could relate to, this past year has been depressing, maddening, exciting, and scary, sometimes all in the same day. However I learned I’m stronger and braver than I ever imagined. Sometimes life doesn’t pan out the way you planned or even busted your backside to make happen. Yet amazing things can still take place when you keep on truckin…and having some seriously cool uplifting styles never hurt either 😉

Hoodie: Olan Rogers Apparel Thank heavens for hoodies. Its the closest thing to your blanket that’s acceptable to wear around in everyday life, and this particular hoodie may even rival my blanket in its comfort levels, its made from really sturdy cotton poly blend so its great at keeping the cold out, which I was super thankful because Texas went from 75 degrees to 50 overnight, and the design on this piece is so effortlessly cool. Oh and this hoodie is PERFECT for layering, so if you live somewhere like I do where the weather is totally bipolar having a good layering piece is an absolute must.

Sweater: Olan Rogers Apparel This is the piece that started the entire collection and I have to admit its definitely my favorite. Which is saying something because I really love everything from the fall line. First off the design on this sweater is incredible! I mean who wouldn’t want a battle ready bear gracing their shirt? The stone color is so perfectly suited for fall and winter, the classic crewneck cut will never go out of style, and I wish there were words sufficient enough to describe how perfectly soft the inner lining is, maybe this is what its like to be that paper cone they wrap cotton candy around? Oh and if the softness wasn’t enough the warmth will be, its what I imagine swimming in a giant cup of coffee to be like…I think I must be tired, I’m associating everything with sugar and caffeine haha. But seriously this sweater is the best!

I really hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check out Olan Rogers Apparel. This is a company I so wholeheartedly support, the people who run it are amazing, the designs are so fun and unique, every article of clothing I’ve received from them is insanely comfortable, and for every shirt sold a needy child is fed for the day! Now that is the kind of business I want to get behind.

Oh and on a side note the holidays are coming up and shopping for people can be really tough but I happen to think everybody would appreciate some Olan Rogers gear, don’t you? Happy Friday my loves.

 

Fashion Friday Featuring Lady V London

Well Happy Halloween everyone. Today’s post is not the least bit scary or spooky unless you happen to get the creeps from fabulous dresses at fabulous prices haha.

This week I am featuring the lovely company Lady V London. Lady V is run by husband and wife team Sergio and Victoria whose commitment to their customers, community, and workers is outstanding. From the very start of their company Victoria and Sergio were determined to create beautiful vintage inspired pieces at affordable prices, this means all the products are designed in house, and up until 2013 all of their dresses were made in EU. As of June 2013 Lady V moved their production to London ensuring excellent working conditions, higher standards of construction, and a quicker turn around time producing new designs and stocking old favorites. Beautiful clothes that you can feel good about wearing? It doesn’t get better than that! 45424628This shoot was 90% giggles.4606gloves and shoes4788twirlGotta do the twirl test, the Isabella passed with flying colors.459945604544474445894795Earrings: Sam Moon/Similar

Necklace: Sam Moon/Similar

Dress: Lady V London To me this dress is a prime example of why the pinup style is so fun and more practical than you might imagine. The versatility of this dress has got to be one of my favorite features. The bow detailing can be removed in order to change the feel of the dress. Plus the timeless design can easily transition from a casual day out by pairing it with a cardigan, ballet flats, and fun 50’s style pony tail, to an elegant night on the town by ditching the cardigan adding some heels, an updo, and some glitzy jewelry. Also in case you’re wondering the fit of this dress is superb, my measurements are 36″ 27.5″ 36″ so I went with a US size 6 (UK size 10) the dress has ample room for the simple things like moving and breathing 😉 but it doesn’t look the least bit sloppy, oh and my favorite part, it actually has sleeves that can handle my shoulders! Lady V London thank you for making such wonderful dresses ❤
