Fashion Friday Featuring Julie Mollo

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?352837093584PicMonkey Collage3639378137213564forever twirling38403766and pretending to be a ballerina365937513613and then I happenMy mom was standing out of shot so naturally I had to make a face at her 😉

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.

Oh Pinterest Why?

I have a love-hate relationship with Pinterest. I love it because basically its a giant culmination of everything I wanted, plus stuff I never knew I wanted. I hate pinterest though because I waste far too much time on it, and the main reason I hate it, is because it walks up to me all seductive and inviting… then slaps me in the face with the wet blanket that is reality *BAM*! The reality that…

Eating like this

Will not result in a body like this.

That I will never own a pair of these.

I mean yes I could save up and buy these…but $1000!!! Seriously I am the girl who manages a panic attack while spending $60. So no I don’t think I will ever own the beautiful Louboutins 😦

That my dream dress’ price matches that of a car.

Quit taunting me!

That my engagement ring will probably not look like this.

Wowza that’s gorgeous!

And the fact that I have zero patience to make something like this has not, nor will it ever change.

I made a coaster using this technique…ya only a coaster 😦

That with all the practice in the world I will still paint my nails like a drunken 4yr old.

Seriously what kind of black magic is this?

That in order to restore a beautiful automobile like this, I will have to save lots of money, and oh ya learn how to restore a car.

*drool*

That growing my hair to this length is going to take at least another 2 years.

If only.

The fact mommy will probably always detest the idea of tattoos, no matter how fabulous they are.

And lastly, finding a home in my budget that also happens to contain all of this, is about as likely as me running for president and winning!

Yes pinterest is a cruel mistress indeed. But it gives you something to strive, work, and save for…So I will probably frequent the site all the same. I hope you all enjoyed this post, and if you have any similar reality checks you have come across please feel free to share. Happy Thursday all!
