Ruffle Me Crazy

November 8, 2010 8:56 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Not only am I in love with the color of this jacket, but TA-DA!  It has ruffles too!  Add ruffles to anything and I will fall in love instantly.  This camel color is so versatile and a less harsh version of the leather jacket as opposed to a black one.  It almost goes with anything!  Throw it over jeans and a t-shirt, or a long bohemian dress.  The result is instant put-togetherness!

Tell Me About It...Stud

October 20, 2010 12:28 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

It is completely and officially cold outside where I live!  No more random days of 95 degree weather I hope.  In all actuality, we are never really happy with the weather.  We always want it to be what it is not.  I'm sure I will soon be ranting about how I am sick and tired of wearing tights and jackets everyday!  But as of this moment, I am reveling in it!  There is nothing like the fresh air after the rain.  I don't care for the rain, but the aftermath...YES!

Oh my, I could not WAIT to wear these boots.  They are one of my favorite purchases for fall.  Only $25 on Overstock.com and free shipping!  They may still have them if you want to snag a pair for yourself!  The camel color is DIVINE and kind of rare.  I haven't seen many boots in this color before.  And you know I love anything with studs!  I give these boots an A++!  They are great to just throw on with an oversized sweater and leggings or tights with a skirt!  Soooo versatile.  Ok, I have a question for you all...Does anyone else tuck their jeans into their socks when wearing boots?  I always feel like a giant dork if I am trying on shoes in a store and have to expose my "jeans tucked into socks" look.  I always kind of hide my feet so no one sees.  Haha.  I just hate when my jeans bunch up over my boots, and socks seem to hold them in place!  Just one of my weird thoughts...

Draped In Love

October 11, 2010 11:57 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Over this past weekend I went on a jewelry-making rampage!  Once I get in the zone, there is no turning back.  The result of all this madness was a sore back and neck (from concentrating so hard), and some really cute stuff!  Totally worth the backache!  I am excited to debut this chain necklace and bracelet!

Straying from my usual fedora, I chose this pageboy hat.  LOVE!  Confession: I had to cut the elastic in the back because my head was too big!  Haha.  You know what they say...big head = big brain!  I'm just really smart! :)

This shirt is extremely shapeless, but I am really loving the soft drapey-ness (fake word) of it.  The color is so beautiful and romantic.  I can also picture it with dark grey...that would be fab!  Ok my peeps, let me know what you think about my jewelry-making skills!  I love hearing your feedback!

Pleather Please!

October 9, 2010 3:43 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

Still with Nicole Ritchie's style in my mind, I find myself being drawn to flowing shirts and soft fabrics.  Then I had to add an opposite.   What is a complete 180 from a flowing top?  Duh, a leather vest!  I hesitated when pairing this vest with these kind of biker chick boots.  "Is it too much biker?", I asked myself.  I looove leather and studded details but can there really be too much of a good thing?  I threw my better judgement to the wind and went for it!

Although comfort is usually the furthest thing from my mind when getting dressed in the morning (oh the things we women do for beauty!), this morning was quite the contrary!  This ensemble is the epitome of comfortable, which fit my completely lazy mood!  The last thing you want to do when laziness overcomes you is strut around in 4 inch heels all day.  It can be exhausting!

Now let me tell you something about these boots...they are my adoration at the moment!  I know, I know, I obsess about one thing after the next.  If fashion A.D.D. existed, I would have it!  So...back to the boots.  A wonderful line called Dolce Vita has arrived at Target!  They make AMAZING shoes, especially boots.  These biker boots are not bulky AT ALL, which is the main thing I love about them.  The toe is very narrow and makes for a flattering fit!  I encourage you to take a peek at Dolce Vita or Dolce Vita for Target online.  I'm sure you will fall in love as I have!

Lumberjack Boots

October 4, 2010 1:04 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

The leaves are starting to change, the sky is looking gloomy...but why is it still warm outside?!!  This outfit is as close to fall as I can get without dying from heat exhaustion!  I am sooo in denial about the weather.  My body's telling me no...but my miiiiind's telling me yes!  (Haha R Kelly reference)

These boots are the most difficult ones in my closet to wear!  I love them, but had the worst time EVER finding something to wear with them!  They are kind of bulky, and I have scrawny little legs.  Also, they are kind of lumberjack-esque (Yes, sometimes I make up my own words), so I don't want to look too manly!  I TOTALLY based this outfit off of the boots.  Determination clouded my judgement as I opened my closet this morning!

I am pretty proud of these jeans.  Found them on sale at Target for $13 and I have to say that they are pretty awesome!  Great fitting pants are few and far between for me, as probably for most women.  But when I laid eyes on these studded, distressed skinnies, I knew immediately that they would fit!  Love those moments!  When I first started wearing jeans with holes in them (purposely distressed), I can't even tell you how many people would ask me "oh, what happened did you fall down?" as they laughed to themselves, thinking that they were hilarious!  I love it!  I too laugh at my own jokes more times than not...(as she gives a sheepish grin).

What's In A Name?

October 2, 2010 1:18 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Sometimes I go online and look at photos of celebrity outfits for inspiration.  The other day I was looking at Nicole Ritchie's style and couldn't get it out of my head when I got dressed in the morning.  Hence, the bohemian, casual, kind of hippie outfit I came up with.  I absolutely love her style!  It seems so effortless.  To come up with an outfit that looks like you're not trying too hard, when you ACTUALLY DID try hard, is a task in itself!

This shirt is made by Hang Ten, which is kind of random because I didn't even realize they still made clothes!  I'm kind of oblivious to the whole "beach scene".  I remember when I was in Junior High and this boy would make fun of me for not wearing "name brand" clothes like Hang Ten and Roxy.  LOL!  My mom bought me a Hang Ten shirt that I picked out at Ross, and I thought I was sooo cool!  I don't even think that I liked the shirt, I just wanted to be like the "cool kids"!  What is it about name brands?  Have you ever bought something just because of the label?  I'm so glad I don't care anymore!  Cute is cute no matter the price!

Not A Through Street

September 20, 2010 1:08 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

I apologize for being M.I.A. for the past couple of days.  We had a yard sale over the past weekend, and let me say that it was exhausting!  If felt amazing to clean out my closet and get rid of some things that I don't use.  I sold about 20 pairs of shoes.  Someone's trash is anothers treasure!  Now I have room for some new ones!  Ha.

I have been extremely excited to post these pictures because I think that the background is pretty cool.  The way the sun was setting behind the trees made the sky look wondrous!  My husband went with me on this photo shoot, and we took our two dogs (kids) with us.  Although, only one made it into the pictures.  Meet my little ball of fur...Gizmo.  He is just as bad as his name sounds!

I don't own very many expensive items...but these Christian Dior sunglasses are one of them!  Love them!  Anything expensive that I own was most likely a gift from either my parents or my husband.  It is a rare occasion that I spend over $100 dollars on one item.  It has to be pretty dang amazing!

I am loving all of the lace-up style shoes that are out right now.  These shoes I found on sale at JC Penny for $10.  Why they would mark down these amazing shoes to that low of a price, I have no idea!  But I am not going to complain about that!  Score!  One point for me!

Gizmo is having a little bit of the crazy eyes...but he IS smiling for the camera!  It's because he thinks he's famous now.  :)

Monterey Bay

September 7, 2010 9:43 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Here are more pictures from my vacation in Nor Cal.  We took the 17 mile drive at Pebble Beach, which is completely gorgeous!  There is so much wildlife there: sea otters, seals, sea lions...I am such an animal lover.  We explored the tide pools and walked the beaches.  It was perfect!

We came across these beautiful trees that made for a perfect photo-op!  I accidentally stepped in poison oak...from my past camping adventures I should have known better, I was just not paying attention!  Thankfully nothing happened to my feet!

Our last stop before heading home was Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey.  We enjoyed amazing seafood, saw tons of jellyfish swimming, and came across this sea lion basking in the sun!  My husband snapped a quick photo...I was scared it would jump up and come after me!  They are not friendly creatures if they are bothered.

We witnessed a beautiful sunset on the drive home.  Now back to reality and back to the warm weather...yearning and waiting to be able to wear my fall clothes again.  That was just a tease of jackets, scarves and boots.  I am still counting down the days and watching the temperature drop!

I Double Stripe Dare You!

August 24, 2010 1:48 am · Posted by sassysweetheart


Mixing prints is really in right now, so I thought I would give it a go.  I don't think I've ever tried it before, so this should be fun!  I decided to go with mixing two different stripe patterns.  Definitely easier to pull off than any other prints.  I have read that when you are mixing stripes, use items with the same color pallette and mix smaller stripes with bigger.  The rest of the outfit, keep pretty simple.

This was a really fun look to wear!  Looking at the photos I am actually liking it better than when I was wearing it.  Don't be afraid to try new things.  You just might be pleasantly surprised!

Some of you may not like the mixing of patterns, it is really a matter of preference.  So...here is another option, just for YOU!  (See below picture, I am pointing at you! haha)

If you like my double stripe look, I encourage you to try it and make it your own!  In fact, I DARE YOU! :)
