{ New season, new look! I hope you all like the new layout! }

So finally spring is here! The sun is out, the temperature is slowly rising, and coats and sweaters are slowly hiding away. Oh how I miss them already…


Psych! 😛 I do love being able to wear dress without tights!

It was still a little chilly to go sleeveless on this dress, but too warm to put a sweater over it, so the next best option? CHAMBRAY.

Thrift Style Thursday : Movie Inspired

When I sit down to watch Charlie’s Angels (the movie and/or series), two thoughts come into my head:
1. I wish I could kick butt like that.
2. I wish I had a dress like that.

Number 1 is still in the works, but I can officially say that I accomplished the latter. 🙂

In the World of J. Austen

I know what you’re thinking and the answer is NO, I did not actually wear this today to walk around town. We took family portraits over the holidays, so I thought I would share my look with you. I’m not really into the traditional studio family portraits, but hey, it’s an excuse to get all dressed up!

So let me tell you something about this dress…MY FAVORITE.
Every girl needs that dress, with a lace corset bodice and satin ribbon, that makes her feel like she’s the female lead character in a Jane Austen novel.

Now go find yourself that dress that makes you feel like Mr. Darcy could walk up to you at any moment and say…

“You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”

The Red Brocade

Last weekend, I took off my teacher hat and partied it up in Florida at my cousin’s wedding. If you don’t know already, I have been blessed with a wonderfully big extended family. We are so tight-knit that it’s kind of scary and weird to some people. Here are some snippets:

Shoes: DSW: Similar

I loved wearing this red dress so much that I decided to try and dress it down for work.

Sweater: Anthropologie – Similar // Boots: DSW – Similar
Belt: Anthropologie – Similar

Note: Do not be confused with Brocade and Brigade.

BTW, I know some of you may be wondering “Why all the fashion posts? Where’s all the crafts?” Well, getting dressed is a MUST-DO, while crafting is a MAY-DO. I can’t show up to work in my PJ’s now, can I? When I have more time to craft, don’t worry, you’ll be the first to know.

Dress: Anthropologie  //  Sweater: H&M  // Boots: Anthropologie (Similar)

I should have titled this post “Fix-its”.
Problem 1: I wanted to wear the dress, but it was slightly chilly.
Fix-it 1: Layer with a sweater
Problem 2: The sweater was a tad loose and had no shape due to stretching.
Fix-it 2: Add a belt
Problem 3: Tired due to staying up to watch Revenge and Once Upon a Time.
Fix-it 3: Two cups of coffee and smile and hope that your students won’t notice.
