I figured for my last Halloween post I should really go out with a bang, and what could be better than two outfits in one post? Especially when those two outfits are incredibly nerdy? My sister and I are both Whovians so we attended Doctor Who Day at the British Emporium (had an absolute blast by the way) and once we were done stocking up on Jammie Dodgers and meeting fellowe Whovians, we figured it only stood to reason to capture our outfits and post em on here for all of you to enjoy!Apparently River didn’t get the memo that Stetsons are cool.Drunk giraffe loves Jammie DodgersTardis self destruct button…or is it in fact a biscuit?River’s Costume

This week’s Fashion Friday will be featuring none other than the incredible Julie Mollo! I actually had the great pleasure of meeting this lovely lady when I was in Brooklyn back in May, and I was immediately drawn to her, she just exudes confidence and has such a playful spirit, and her sense of style is the perfect blend of feminine and badass retro babe. These wonderful attributes are carried right into Julie’s designs and its no surprise that several big names have taken notice and commisioned Mrs Mollo to create pieces for them, one of these “Big Names” is none other than Katy Perry! Katy Perry’s style has always been one of the things I most loved about her, and I’ll admit there are several looks of hers I’ve tried to recreate. Now many of us cannot commision designers and don’t have teams to make us look fab…But we can still look like stars because Julie sells her pieces to the masses as well as musicians, performers, and the like. Isn’t that wonderful?forever twirlingand pretending to be a ballerinaMy mom was standing out of shot so naturally I had to make a face at her 😉
Blouse: Hot Topic/Similar
Jacket: Forever 21
Belt: Pinup Girl Clothing
Tutu: Julie Mollo I would like to extend a huge thank you to Julie for understanding how so many of us ladies wanted nothing more than to be ballerinas! Now I may not be able to dance en pointe, or just dance in general for that matter, but that does not mean I cannot rock a tutu. This glorious tutu is made from 8 layers of wonderful bouncy tulle and the tie is made from cotton sateen, also another fun factor about the tie is you can tie a bow, knot it, and wear it either fastened in the back or front, its entirely up to you! Since this piece is a true to style tutu it is a bit sheer so I wore a white pencil skirt underneath mine, but you could wear a slip, tights, or even rock a body suit! Julie creates pieces that are easily personalized, and knows that fashion is meant to be fun and a form of expression! So all of her pieces are meant to be styled from one extreme to another, so whether you want to embrace the full girly girl look or want to add a little bit of edge to your attire Mrs Mollo has what you’re looking for.
Heels: Charlotte Russe/Similar
I really hope you all liked this post and that you check out the always fabulous Julie Mollo. Happy Friday!
Sunday was the day we have all waited for, well I didn’t wait but that’s besides the point, the third season of Sherlock premiered here in the states. So being the crazy fangirl I am I decided to do an Irene Adler inspired look for the occasion. I’ll be honest I hate the character of Irene but The Woman has style.
See what I mean? Ever so stylish.
Overall I am quite happy with how I executed this look. I of course went more casual with my clothing choice, but I think I pretty much nailed the hair and makeup, and will probably wear this style more often.
Black eyeliner: Besame
Blue “eyeliner”: Loreal
Coat: H&M The one I have has sold out but this one is a lovely alternative
Blouse: Hot Topic bought it ages ago so of course there aren’t anymore but Forever 21 has a great one!
I hope you all enjoyed this Irene Adler inspired look and that you have a wonderful weekend. Cheers!
Here is my look from Thursday, I headed out with one of my dear friends for a much needed get together. It was a really relaxed night so I didn’t feel like dressing up too much, but I still like to give you all a fun look on here.

This is my outfit from Monday. We were experiencing bipolar Texas weather, even though it is almost April it was surprisingly cold 50’s during the heat of the day and 32 at night, that may sounds very mild to all of you in colder climates but when you go from the mid 70’s to that it’s quite a shock. So I figured I better take advantage of the cold and wear my lovely knit hat cause it’s gonna be months til it gets this cold again.
My sister’s dog had to join in on the fun too, aren’t we gorgeous 😉
Lipstick: I bought from ULTA its the NYX matte lip cream in Monte Carlo
Top: Hot Topic
Necklace: Forever 21, it was a gift from my big brother.
Jeans: Old Navy got these baby’s on clearance for $10
Shoes: Another gift, they are from my best friend, I love my TOMS.
I hope you all enjoyed this post have a happy Fashionable Friday and a fabulous weekend!
Wow I am doing another Fashion Friday. I really liked this look so I though I would share. It was just such a lovely day here in Dallas, not too warm and not too cold, so that means a dress and layering day to me. So here it is.
Dress: Target. It was a Christmas gift a few years back.
Vest: Target. A hand me down from my sister-in-law. I always wanted an older sister for that reason 😉
Panty hose: Kohl’s.
Socks: Forever 21
Boots: Atwoods Home and Farm Supply. I got these babies on sale for about $60 which is almost unheard of!
Nose ring: Hot Topic…it’s a fake
Turquoise bracelet: A Native American Festival, I picked it up and loved it…but it was too small, so the sweet little Navajo grandma who made and sold the jewelry, added more beads and wire to it to make it fit me! How sweet!
Gold Bracelet: Family Heirloom.
Headwrap: I think my mom found it at a garage sale.
Earrings: Charlotte Russe. These were free, for every $15 you spent you were able to choose a piece of jewelry under x amount of dollars.
So I hope you all enjoyed this post! Wishing everyone a Happy Friday and fabulous weekend!
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!
