Fashion Friday: Hot Dame

I will make no excuses for lack of posting…But I had a little freetime this week and I thought hey I should post a little look for you all. This week I am featuring the hottest little black dress I’ve ever had the good fortune to wear! The dress is The Vamp from Pinup Girl Clothing.

Hair Flower: Gift from Miss Amy May

Earrings: Charlotte Russe/Similar

Necklace: Gift/Similar

Dress: Pinup Girl Clothing I actually tried on this dress when I went the the pinup girl clothing boutique many moons ago and fell in love instantly…but alas I was a little too broke to buy it at the time…but as the saying goes “Good things come to those who wait”. The dress went on sale, and is still on sale I might add, so I finally bought my PUG first love. The Vamp is the perfect LBD, form fitted to show off the curves, yet modest enough you wouldn’t feel awkward if you ran into your Grandma while out and about. The fabric is a sturdy cotton poly blend but still comfortable, as reference I am 36″ 27.5″ 36″ and the Medium fits me quite comfortably. Basically The Vamp is everything you could want out of a LBD…But if black isn’t your thing this dress comes in other colourways as well!

Shoes: Restricted

I hope you all enjoyed this post and thank you for putting up with me and my lack of posting. Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday Winter Wonderland

The weather was pretty insane this week. I cannot recall a time when Dallas has seen so much ice. So for this week I will be sharing a very winter prepared outfit. If you follow me on instagram you have already seen these pictures. I didn’t have the opportunity to do another shoot this week. But hey this is better than nothing right?

Outfit Repeater

outfit repeaterRepeating 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.

Fashion Friday Featuring Onzie

So in my most recent post I had said how yoga clothes are not worth sharing on Fashion Friday…Well the problem wasn’t the fact that they were yoga clothes, the problem was that they weren’t Onzie yoga attire. Seriously I have never seen such pretty activewear before. All of Onzie’s production, that means from knitting to photography, takes place in their Los Angeles facilities. It’s nice to know that there still are 100% USA made companies out there. Onzie was created by 20 year bikram yogi so you can be certain these clothes are just as functional as they are beautiful. You can find out more about this awesome company here http://www.theonzie.com/

6482668364586701this is what happens when you walk barefoot across the street 😉

665165706505clearly I was having fun in the reflection pond

6594661265566689652568126806IMG_67616821IMG_6773I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you all go and get yourself some onzie gear.

Everything I am wearing is from Onzie but I will post the links to what particular products I am wearing.

Scoop back tank: http://www.theonzie.com/scoop-back-tank/ I honestly love this top so much I’ll probably wear it round town cause I absolutely adore the back detail.

Criss cross bra: http://www.theonzie.com/criss-cross-bra-top/ just a little side note this is the most comfortable sports bra I’ve ever worn! Its supportive but it doesn’t dig into your shoulders like so many sports bras do! So I would definitely encourage anyone on the hunt for the “perfect” sports bra to get this one.

Sport Short: http://www.theonzie.com/sport-short/ I got the floral print cause it’s so perfectly girly! These are also super comfortable.

Have a happy Friday everyone.

“What I Wore” Wednesday

So I may or may not keep up with another outfit post but it’s worth a shot. This outfit I wore on Sunday for a quiet girls night out. Me and some of my lovely friends went to dinner then onto see Star Trek Into Darkness, which is a crazy awesome movie! Benedict Cumberbatch is incredible as Khan. I decided to go with a fresh faced not too fussy outfit and I think this was the perfect balance of style and comfort.

9721972597449737 My absolute favorite thing about this dress has got to be the opening in the back!

980197799734

Earrings: Cracker barrel, you can find just about everything there!

Flower: I bought it at the dollar store.

Dress: Cotton On http://us.cottonon.com/search/?q=raven+vintage+dress  couldn’t find the print I’m wearing, but the other prints are gorgeous and this baby is on sale for only $10!

Boots: Atwoods.

Hope you all enjoyed the post! Have a happy Wednesday.
