Last weekend we went to a Chrismukkah concert. Several bands played but my personal favorites were:

Florene (Whom I have seen several times and always really enjoy)


Top Secret Robot Alliance (PLEASE watch the “Tiger Dance” video. Seriously)

It was one of those freak warm days we have been having (like today!) and I was able to go with bare legs.

Dec 14

Yes, that’s another 90’s dress. What can I say? I like them.

Dec 14

I felt like taking pictures of this outfit, but I didn’t feel like putting down the iPod. I was listening to a pop mix I have on there…Annie, Girls Aloud, Kylie and Britney Spears. High tone, I know.

All Cats Are Grey (mini challenge)

So lately I really need a reason to get dressed. And as a result, I sort of hopped on a challenge last minute. (I’m sure no one will care, I’ve never seen a more supportive group of ladies.)

Work That Wardrobe posted a mini challenge to wear an outfit inspired by a song.

I choose All Cats Are Grey by The Cure.

I know it seems too easy, but I have never done a challenge before so I thought I’d start easy. I choose the Cure because, let’s face it, I was either going to choose The Cure or The Spice Girls and I just wasn't sure I wanted to do Pepsi colors for "Generation Next" (two points if you even remember that track).

I also waited until late at night to take pictures, and as a result, I didn’t get the best pictures. But hey!~ I did it!~


Dogs can wear grey too!~ (It was so cold out, he was not pleased)

Dinner with Friends

Dec 11

I felt like this outfit struck just the right balance of dressy and casual for dinner at the pub. The blouse, boots and bag kept it dressy, while the jeans and cotton cardigan toned it down and kept it casual. I was comfortable and I felt really pretty.

Dec 11

And the blouse left room for a Cream Cheese Tart w/ fresh berries,
candied walnuts & caramel for dessert. SO GOOD.

Fabulous vintage suede boots from a local thrift store…

So the outfits for the “Decades” dress up party came out great. The closest to an outfit shot of Nathan I got was this:

Dec 6, Day 61 reject

But he looked great. UGLY sweater, old school Docs, Morrissey tee, scruffy beard and all.

Here is my outfit in all it’s glory though:
Decades Party. The 90s.

That jacket is a jacket I bought when I was 16, with a paycheck from the GAP. I was so excited when I got it, I wore it right away. In August. In Texas.

For me, the thing that really made the costume though was the thermal underwear shirt:
Decades Party. The 90s.

Everything but the earrings (Love Erin Designs), boots (Steve Madden) I dont have my Docs anymore) and the thermal (Wal-mart) is vintage. The jacket is 16 years old. 16!~

I have a killer cold so I’m not going out much lately, but Friday I did go out for tapas. And they were really good. Bacon wrapped dates, mushroom croquettes, chunky fried potatoes…mmmm. I eat a LOT when I have a cold, because when I’m eating, I feel better.

Dec 5

I know I’m pushing it with the tunic leggings combo. I don’t care. I doubled up the leggings and called them pants. I know. It’s wrong. Whatever. My legs went on for miles and even though I was sick as a dog I felt amazing.

Dec 5

I forgot to get a close up of those bangles, but they are the ones Sal featured a while back. I love them. And they were really affordable. You can always click through to see the picture larger on my Flickr page.

This bag was the last Nice Thing I bought myself before I realized I had a problem and started therapy, and THINKING about what I bought and when and why.

Dec 5

It’s a great bag. Really nice leather And that little strap thing is so comfortable. The bag just sits there in my hand. And it’s BIG for a clutch, which means I can take my actual make-up bag instead of just gloss, and my actual wallet instead of just a CC and my ID.

Gift Bag

I wasn’t going to do an outfit post this day. I was wearing jeans and a tee.
Not very interesting. But then Nathan came home. And he wanted to go get dinner, AND, he had brought me a gift. He had thrifted this gorgeous suede and leather vintage bag for me. It’s by Naturalizer and it looks like it was never even carried.

I. Love. It.

I’m not much for going out in jeans and a tee, but I didn’t really want to change, so I threw on a sweater and a scarf.

And some earrings

Danael and I went to lunch and to see Twilight. I asked him to take a few outfit pics for me. He took one, and it was good, so we quit!~

Nov 25

I really loved this outfit. It was so simple and classic. And the shoes stayed comfortable for a surprisingly long time. If I didn’t have such a horrible bunion, I think I could wear them all day, even on days when I’m on my feet a lot.

I made myself this necklace. I love love love it. It is NOT available in the shop. It was just too much trouble and too many beads to be able to do it for you at an affordable price. If you want to pay $100 for it, let me know.

Nov 25

I just love all the colors.

I wore it with these simple turquoise hoops

Nov 25

I loved Twilight by the way. I thought it was really true to the book and I had so much fun watching it. I’ve seen it twice. I’ll probably see it at least one more time. And of course I want the DVD.

90s dress

So I’m not sure anyone but me is really up for this style coming back. But I love it. I found it at a thrift store for a couple bucks. I didn’t really have the curves for this style when I was younger, so I was excited that it looked so good on me. And our weather has been crazy cold one day and warn and sunny the next for a while now, which is why I was able to wear it with no sweater.

Nov 24

I know it would look better with my brown boots with heels, and I intend to wear the heels Friday to Nathan’s office party. We are supposed to come dressed as a decade and we choose the nineties. Nathan has this HORRIBLE Kurt Cobain sweater:

ugly sweater
(I stole this photo from Lara)

I am so not a fan of that sweater. But the guitar ups the hot factor.

Anyway. This day I wore it with flat boots, because we were running errands all day

Nov 24

And of course, knee highs.

This bag is another Goodwill find. Fossil, leather and so soft. And a great smaller size for those days I don’t need to have a book and an iPod and blah blah blah. AND I also got it in sage green!

Nov 24

I did try a sweater on before I knew how warm it was, but it was a great big MISS in my opinion and I traded it for an Alternative Apparel wrap after I saw this pic and before we left the house. I hated the silhouette on this.

Nov 24

But I still love these earrings!~
Nov 21

And I thought they looked great with this dress.
