Fashion Friday Featuring Malco Modes

This week’s Fashion Friday will be featuring Malco Modes. Malco Modes is a 100% made in the USA establishment that specializes in petticoats, underskirts, crinolines, pettipants, and even square/western dance apparel. All of the garments are hand-sewn and made with the highest quality materials, ensuring not only a beautiful piece but one that is also made to be sturdy enough for dancers and performers. There is a great variety of pieces to choose from, but if you cannot find quite what you’re looking for, you can give this Eastern Tennessee based company a call and they will do a custom order for you! How great is that? I cannot encourage you enough to give this company a try. You will not be dissapointed http://www.malcomodes.biz/default.asp

So I am still waiting on a swing dress to arrive in the mail (curse you Dallas Icestorm) but I wasn’t going to let that stop me from showing you all my beautiful new petticoat. So being as it is an “undergarment” I decided to have a bit of fun and do a “getting ready” type shoot.

Crop top: Charlotte Russe which no longer has any but Forever 21 has some wonderful options http://www.forever21.com/Search/SearchResult.aspx?dsNav=Ntk:primary%7cpolka+crop+top%7c3%7c,Ny:True,Ro:0,Up:regular&dsDimensionSearch=D:polka+crop+top,Dxm:AllPartial,Dxp:3&dsCompoundDimensionSearch=D:polka+crop+top,Dxm:AllPartial,Dxp:3&keyword=polka+crop+top&fromsearch=true

Petticoat: Malco Modes http://www.malcomodes.biz/petticoats-petticoats-Jennifer-p/582.htm I must shout it from the rooftops, this petticoat is a fluffy cloud of perfection. The beautiful nylon chiffon is incredibly soft, but the double layer gives that wonderful fullness one so desires! Plus the adjustable waist and length make it a piece that is versatile, so no need buy tons of different petticoats. Of course after you experience this petticoat you might feel the need to buy more colors 😉

I am over the moon thrilled with my petticoat and I hope you all give Malco Modes a look. Happy Friday guys I love ya!

Why I Will Never Be Considered “Cool”

So let’s all be honest we have all tried extremely hard to be cool at one point in time, heck some of us are still trying to be “cool”. I think I must have been around 8 or so when I really started mimicking my peers in order to fit in, well sense that was when Britney Spears and belly shirts were the height of fashion, you can imagine that mom snapped me out of that one real fast haha. After that little incident, my mom was really pushing for me to be my own person. And I must say it worked, so thanks mom thanks for making me uncool. It’s just about the best thing that ever happened to me. So I thought I might list a few of my uncool qualities.

1. I am beyond old fashioned! Hey I may only be 20…but I am close to 80 years old in my views on life.

If my appearance matched my personality 😉

2. I find sports a form of public humiliation and torture. Growing up in a household of Texas boys this made me incredibly uncool.

I was always on the recieving end of any sports “accident”. Let’s just say having your arm pulled out of socket twice is a good limit. Thanks Michael and James!

3. My idea of current music is Johnny Cash.

“you kids turn that racket down I can’t stand that noise you call music!!!”

4. My idea of a party is… a tea party!

“I do declare Gertrude this is one of the most outrageous get togethers I have ever experienced”

5. I read and not because I have to.

“Is this what heaven looks like?”

6. I’m always a friend never a girlfriend.

Being a friend to the guys was not only “uncool” it made a lot of girls hate me!

7. I dance like Bill Cosby! Even when there is no music.

These are my mad dance skills. You jelly?

So all in all learn to embrace your own inner dork! You will be a much happier you.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!
