Fashion Friday Featuring Restricted Shoes Pt 2.

Well a very happy November to you all! Oh gosh I just love that, wishing you a happy November!  Since we’re finally moving into “winter” Texas is getting the rain it so desperately needs and clearly I could not be more thrilled. I was ever so slightly concerned that it might dampen (haha see what I did there?) our photoshoot, but I think it just highlighted my gorgeous flats from Restricted Shoes all the more. Don’t you?

Shoes: Restricted Shoes What a fun spin on the classic oxford!!! The cutout detailing brings a breath of fresh air and a touch of edge to an old favorite, the pointed toe for me is synonymous with high fashion, and the color combo of white and mint keep these bad boys perfectly playful and oh so 50’s! I’m really enjoying these flats a great deal. I’ve had some really bad experiences with ballet flats causing gnarly blisters but the Gimmie is made from really soft faux leather so no blisters for me! Thank God! So I guess what I am saying is these are an all around great pair of flats ❤

I hope you all enjoyed this Pt 2 piece on Restricted Shoes and that you have a very Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday Featuring Atomic Swag

Oh my goodness guys I’m so stoked for this week’s feature. As you all know I really enjoy rocking the pinup/rockabilly look, but unfortunately that style can be a bit too dressy. Now I’ve actually come to the point where I no longer care about people thinking I’m too dressy, but some day’s I’d prefer to be a little more chill, and what is more chill than a t-shirt? Well I’ll tell you, a t-shirt from Atomic Swag Apparel. I’m not sure I’ve ever worn a more delightfully soft shirt, seriously it’s like wrapping yourself in your favorite cozy blanket…except these bad boys are way more stylish than walking around wearing a blanket.

Atomic swag’s shirt designs are just fabulous and could fit anyone’s taste, men included, this post isn’t just for the ladies. The different styles offered range from rockabilly, motorcycle, state, to hotrod racing t-shirts and all these designs are printed on 100% cotton t-shirts using waterbased inks so they won’t chip, peel, or fade. Huzzah for excellent quality! Looking good isn’t enough, I need style and quality and Atomic Swag certainly delivers on both accounts.

Shirt 1.


Shirt: Atomic Swag Apparel I just love how delightfully cheeky the design on this shirt is don’t you? I’m just so pleased with this soon to be “overworn” piece. Since I’m a pinup and a Texan I’ve always had a bit of a softspot for pinup cowgirls and this shirt could not combine those two styles more perfectly.

Shorts: Target

Boots: Atwoods/Similar

Seemed like an appropriate sign to stand under 😉

Shirt: Atomic Swag Apparel Oh my word, I didn’t even know it was possible to love a shirt this much you guys. I have a ridiculous amount of state pride and if you’re a fellow Texan you know what I’m talking about, this shirt could not be more perfect! The cream colored background, the vintage soft feel, and the Texas design just combine so beautifully and I am not even a little sorry about how much I am going to wear this shirt. It’s a Texas thing Ya’ll 😉

Fashion Friday Featuring Desi Roo Clothing

Hey guys I am rather excited to share a fabulous find with you all this week. Whilst surfing through etsy (like one does) I came across the fabulous Desi Roo Clothing, not only are there beautiful accessories to choose from, but all of the blouses offered are so incredibly lovely!

What I especially loved is that a lot of the tops are made from vintage fabric but the blouse itself is new, so there won’t be the hassles that come along with pure vintage pieces like rips, fragility, and mysterious smells/stains. There are a few variations of blouse structure offered: cotton tie shoulder top,  flirty puff sleeve wrap back blouse, and the 1940’s puff sleeve wrap back, plus all the prints and fabrics offered are too numerous and outrageously beautiful to name, if there is a particular color or print you happen to be fond of I bet you can find it. I could honestly buy one in every print and have the most perfect wardrobe that ever was. Oh and another great thing about Desi Roo is that if there is a top you like that just happens to be too large it can be altered for a better fit for only $15!

51605171519852465208525052745313Basically its impossible for me to remain serious 😉

Earrings: Desi Roo Clothing  all the beauty of actual Bakelite but none of the potential lead poisoning. I mean who wouldn’t want to don a pair of pastel chrysanthemum earrings?

Blouse: Desi Roo Clothing  I love love LOOOVE this blouse! Its just as comfortable as a T-shirt but worlds more stylish. Whether your personal style is that of a vintage inspiration or you’re simply a woman who appreciate a well made spectacular fitting top that can be worn from errands, to the office, and then to a night on the town, then this little number is for you! The fabric is sturdy, doesn’t wrinkle easily, and the fit is superb! Just follow the size chart and you’re good as gold. My measurments are 36″ 27.5″ 36″ and the medium is a perfect fit yay! It can be difficult to look stylish during the warmer months but this blouse was made for spring and summer! The sleeves sit just off the shoulders for a feminine and stylish look that will keep you cool but won’t sacrifice on style!

Pencil Skirt: H&M

Flats: Payless 

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check Desi Roo Clothing out! Happy Friday love you all.


Fashion Friday

I decided to have some fun with this week’s Fashion Friday, and do a bit of a 50’s rebel inspired look, while wearing just about the best band shirt there is! If you’re not familiar with JD McPherson please for the love of all that is good familiarize yourself with this incredible band!

There are few things in life I enjoy more than a great concert, and I can honestly say no one puts on a greater show than JD! The amount of artistry and attack that comes to every song will blow your mind. No matter your age and no matter your taste in music I can guarantee you will enjoy the mix of R&B and Old school Rock N Roll the McPherson band dishes out. I’ve have the pleasure of seeing them live a few times and I’m never disappointed, I walk away feeling like it was the first time all over again. So if this sounds like something you’d like to experience be sure to check out their tour dates and see if they’re playing near you this spring/summer tour.

Flower Clip: Claires

Jacket: It’s my stepdad’s old highschool letterman. However Forever 21 has a great letterman styled jacket available

Shirt: JD McPherson concert. Now if JD isn’t coming through your town on this upcoming tour fret not, you can still snag this shirt along with other fantastic merchandise from their online store

Jeans: Old Navy

Shoes: Payless

Well I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check JD out, you will not be sorry! Love you all. Happy Friday.


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

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.


Pearl necklace and earrings: Birthday present. But Macy’s has an excellent deal on a freshwater pearl set|d{device}_21231719103%7C-%7CIBGtfBhs

Crop top: Charlotte Russe which no longer has any but Forever 21 has some wonderful options,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 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!


Fashion Friday (Lady in Red)

Today’s Fashion post is of the outfit I wore on Sunday. I was going to an outdoor food festival thing with some friends, and being that this is Texas I wanted something that was light and was going to keep me cool yet still look stylish. I must say I am quite thrilled with this look and I hope you all are too.
