Fashion Friday With My Twin

Today’s fashion post will be co-staring my beautiful fabulous “twin”. She and I have been best friends for about 13 years, I’m not sure when exactly when we started calling each other twins but we haven’t stopped, and let me tell you the looks we get when we tell people we’re twins is always priceless. As you’ll be able to tell from the pictures we clearly like to be silly. Hope you guys have as much fun viewing the pictures as we had taking them.

Fashion Friday It’s Been A While!

I cannot begin to tell all of you how excited I am that the weather here in Dallas seems to be calming down a wee bit. It’s funny how your body will suddenly find 90 degrees rather cool, after a week of 105! Fall is just around the corner, I can feel it, so I since the weather was quite nice I decided to dress up a little, and share my look with you guys. When it’s 105 looks are the last thing on your mind, it’s been lazy ponytails, slouchy tank tops, shorts, and flip flops most of the summer. This is the reason for no fashion Fridays as of late, so hopefully I will now be able to post more regularly now that it’s cooling down quite a bit.

I was going for a 1920’s flapper inspired look. I had pin curled my hair the night before and decided to try my hand at a faux bob, and I must say I quite like it.

My accesories and nail polish.

Dress: Target.

Necklace: It was my Super lazy DIY.

Bracelet: Family Heirloom.

Nail Polish: Zoya in the color Goldie, and Sally Hansen in the color Black Out.

Ring: My mother and my Late Father gave it to me 🙂

I really adore a vintage feel to my style, and try to incorporate a bit of retro whenever possible. What are some of your favorite vintage or vintage inspired pieces? What is your favorite fashion decade? I would love some feedback. As always I hope you enjoyed this post, and that everyone has a Happy Friday and equally happy weekend.

You Might Be An Artist If…

The fabulous comedian Jeff Foxworthy has made a whole routine about “You might be a redneck if…” Funny and ashamedly enough I have found instances where I was indeed a redneck. One of the jokes goes something like “You might be a redneck if you have several cars in your driveway but the only thing mobile is your home” this was in fact true for the first few years of my life. I have managed to accept some my Texas redneck ways, but one thing I sort of struggled with was identifying myself as an artist, I mean artists are painters, sketch artists, musicians, certain types of photographers, and writers, I am none of these. But friends and family have told me that being  the photographer that I am did indeed make me an artist. This last week I realized how much of an artist I am…No this is not me bragging on how gorgeous my latest portrait is, in fact it is me making light of the silly habits I have. So here is my spin on a classic comedy set up.

You might be an artist if…

You sometimes entertain the idea of being homeless.

No not the have to sleep in cardboard box kind of hobo, but the kind that jumps on trains and takes up odd jobs so you can travel and see the world…even if it isn’t so glamorous.

You constantly worry that you are just a hack, and anyone with half a brain could do what you.

What if I’m just not original enough???

The idea of packing it all in and getting yourself a “proper” career crosses your mind daily.

Consisent pay and benefits are quite tempting.

If you keep a notepad full of artistic ideas, but honestly it’s mostly gibberish.

What the heck did I write???

A nervous breakdown is commonplace for you.

 A little sobbing is therapeutic right?

You understand why artist are often drunks.

It’ll help my art right? I’ll drink to that.

After all the horrible insecurities manifest you realize you have unique point of view, and decide to stick it out like a beast, because nothing makes you happier than your art!

So whether you are a worldwide success or merely accomplished by your own standards, understand that you worked hard to get where you are, or that you are working to get somewhere. Know your worth and keep your head high because it’s so worth it!

I hope you all enjoyed this post, and if you have any similar feelings please feel free to share. I love feedback! Happy Friday and an equally happy weekend to you all!

Fashion Friday is National Wear Red Day!

So I have never done a fashion Friday before…mostly because I am far too lazy to really dress nice, unless I know for certain I am going somewhere where I really should wear something other than a T-shirt and jeans. But today is national wear red day, in support of fighting heart disease in women, so I decided I would glam it up a tad. So here ya go! Oh and please ignore my lack of modeling skills 😉

 

Necklace bracelet combo: Christmas gift.

Corset: Hot Topic.

Cardigan: Cotton On.

Skirt: Target. I bought this skirt when I was around 13, can’t believe the thing still fits, but I haven’t changed much in 7 years haha.

Pumps: Charlotte Russe. And to answer your question yes they are challenging to walk in. 😉

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Wishing everyone good health and a fabulous weekend. Happy Friday!
