Olan Rogers Feature Pt 1

Okay so its been MONTHS since Ive done a post and I am sorry for being lazy. How are we all doing? A lot has happened in the last three months, I’ve been super busy with work which is nothing new, I managed to finally spend time with my beautiful pinup buddy solemate Miss Amy May, fought off some awful colds and a stomach bug which wasn’t fun, oh and ya I finally snagged myself a boyfriend…he’s pretty wonderful, but if you guys are sore about my lack of posting blame it on my boyfriend for eating up my freetime ūüėČ

Anyway enough of my excuses this weeks’s feature is highlighting the always hilarious and ever soft apparel from Olan Rogers Supply. I’ve featured this rad company a few times on the blog already, but I tell ya I never get tired of doing so. The shirts are so stinking comfortable and as I said before the designs are just too fantastic. I love the “Inside Joke” like aspect of the designs too, its another way of spotting other Olan Rogers fans, its like people and their obscure band t-shirts ūüėČ

Except I’m going to be nice and share why this shirt in particular is so fantastic…You just have to watch this video.

So no braving the shopping malls for you, you can kick back watch some hilarious videos on youtube and wait for the postman.

Olan Roger’s Apparel: Fall Line Feature

Hey guys and dolls I’m so thrilled to be sharing this feature with all of you. As you probably know I’m a huge fan of Olan Rogers and Olan Rogers Apparel, but to be featuring pieces from the new fall line is extra special. Not only are the designs absolutely amazing, but the story behind them is something else entirely. Anyone who watches Olan’s videos knows this man is a complete and utter goof. Honestly its like watching a really large, happy, sugar high child tell a story. But it turns out behind all the hilarity Olan was having a really tough year. Like a lay awake at night have your troubles eat at you, tough year. However,¬†instead of letting all the set backs and frustrations trap him,¬†Olan channeled all that stress and negativity to create what I think to be his strongest line yet.

The entire fall line is about Going to War and not letting life knock you out. That’s definitely something I wanted to support. Because its something I could relate to,¬†this past year has been depressing, maddening, exciting, and scary, sometimes all in the same day. However¬†I learned I’m stronger and braver than I ever imagined. Sometimes life doesn’t pan out the way you planned or even busted your backside to make happen. Yet amazing things can still take place when you keep on truckin…and having some seriously cool uplifting styles never hurt either ūüėČ

Shirt: Olan Rogers Apparel¬†¬†Yet again I’m in love with a baseball-T. But can you really blame me? The cut is flattering, the design is killer, and its soooooo soft. It’s like wearing hug honestly.

Hoodie: Olan Rogers Apparel¬†Thank heavens for hoodies. Its the closest thing to your blanket that’s acceptable to wear around in everyday life, and this particular hoodie may even rival my blanket in its comfort levels, its made from really sturdy cotton poly blend so its great at keeping the cold out, which I was super thankful because Texas went from 75 degrees to 50 overnight, and the design on this piece is so effortlessly cool. Oh and this hoodie is PERFECT for layering, so if you live somewhere like I do where the weather is totally bipolar having a good layering piece is an absolute must.

Hat: Cotton On/Similar

Sweater: Olan Rogers Apparel¬†This is the¬†piece¬†that started the entire collection and I have to admit its definitely my favorite. Which is saying something because I really love everything from the fall line. First off the design on this sweater is incredible! I mean who wouldn’t want a battle ready bear gracing their shirt? The stone color is so perfectly suited for fall and winter, the classic crewneck cut will never go out of style, and I wish there were words sufficient enough to describe how perfectly soft the inner lining is, maybe this is what its like to be that paper cone they wrap cotton candy around? Oh and if the softness wasn’t enough the warmth will be, its what¬†I imagine swimming in a giant cup of coffee to be like…I think I must be tired, I’m associating everything with sugar and caffeine haha. But seriously this sweater is the best!

I really hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check out Olan Rogers Apparel. This is a company I so wholeheartedly support, the people who run it are amazing, the designs are so fun and unique, every article of clothing I’ve received from them is insanely comfortable, and for every shirt sold a needy child is fed for the day! Now that is the kind of business I want to get behind.

Oh and on a side note the holidays are coming up and shopping for people can be really tough but I happen to think everybody would appreciate some Olan Rogers gear, don’t you? Happy Friday my loves.

 

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 ūüėČ

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.

I really hope you all liked this post and that you check out the always fabulous Julie Mollo. Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday Younger Sister Edition

Hey I’m back and hopefully for good this time. Our internet provider was supposedly having trouble with their tower so that has been a hassle. But things are up and running again so Fashion Friday’s shall commence. As you guys know I am an outfit repeater, so I decided to not do a post on clothes you all have seen before. Being the awesome little sister she is Rachel volunteered to model so I could give you guys a new Fashion Friday.

She is just ridiculously adorable!

Hat: Aeropostale I bought this hat when I was around little sister’s age so here is a similar hat at icing¬†http://www.icing.com/icing/us/goods/icing+commerce+root/cat1720084/hats/p33097/fall+leaves+embossed+corduroy+newsboy+cap/

Necklace: Forever 21 but of course I cannot find it there any more but mod cloth has an extremely similar one for only $11.99 http://www.modcloth.com/shop/necklaces/swooping-swallow-necklace

White blouse: Target another forever ago purchase but they still have similar tops http://www.target.com/p/mossimo-supply-co-junior-s-3-4-sleeve-tunic-assorted-colors/-/A-14698563#prodSlot=medium_1_13&term=3%2F4+length+sleeve

Jeans: Old Navy http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=85754&vid=1&pid=480938132

Shoes: Converse Outlet Store. These bad boys were on clearance which was quite the blessing cause poor little sister has a devil of a time finding shoes that fit her size 12 foot. So far converse are the only shoes we can get to fit her. Only a few of this particular print are still available here http://www.converse.com/regular/chuck-taylor-stars/136616F_090.html and here http://www.mytheresa.com/en-de/chuck-taylor-all-star-high-tops-191757.html

Fashion Friday (It’s May Right?)

Today’s post will be of my outfit yesterday. Normally I am complaining about the heat this time of year, but this is Texas where you can go from wanting snow cones one day to busting your winter coat out the next. We were experiencing quite the cold front, mid 40’s is quite a shock to system let me tell ya. ¬†I wanted to look nice but still stay warm. Here is the look I came up with.

Fashion Friday

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.
