Little Red

 When I got dressed this morning, I just thought that I’d style this classic red brocade dress in a different way. Who would have thought I would get such a wide response from my students! Supposedly, in their opinion, my outfit resembled a gothic Dorothy, Little Red Riding Hood, or Harley Quinn (the Joker’s girlfriend). Um, I guess I got a jumpstart on my Halloween costume.

**Tip: Change up a classic dress by layering a collared blouse underneath with a different texture!

Unlock the Red

I was debating about boycotting posting anything red for this month in retaliation of Valentine’s Day, but then I’d just be that person. Instead, I’m going to set aside my feelings of this holiday and “Unlock the Red”. Okay, okay, I’m not really against the holiday, but I’m not one of those “OMG I need a Valentine” or the “I hate S.A.D.” girls either. Oh wait, but did I just admit that I am by denying it? Oh shoot.

Anyways, I found this top at Goodwill and thought the lock pattern was cute. It is definitely on the border of a type of pattern that my students might be caught wearing, but I think pairing it with an “adult” looking jacket, skinny jeans, and heels make it appropriate for a high-school-looking-but-really-the-teacher 23 year-old woman.

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:

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.
