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!

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.  :)

Did I Say I Hate Camouflage?

September 13, 2010 11:09 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Ok, so I lied...In an older post (It's Not Easy Being Green), I mentioned that I don't really care for camouflage.  Something came over me and I suddenly changed my mind.  This is proof that you shouldn't be quick to make judgement on a trend until you try it!  I found these pants on sale at JC Penny, and decided to go for it!

I don't care if it's still warm outside.  I have decided to put summer behind me and jump into fall colors.  After all, it IS September.  Cargo pants have become my go-to comfortable outfit rather than jeans.  Paired with the softest, slouchy sweatshirt I have ever felt, it will be difficult to not wear this every single day!  This fall consists of the most comfortable and cool style options.  Whoever thought of it is my fashion hero!

This is a kind of a rugged and grunge type look, so it was completely necessary to wear heels and lots of jewelry.  Makes me feel a little bit rock and roll. :)

Grandpa Pants

September 3, 2010 12:53 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

These pants are extremely old man like!  It was a challenge to make them look cute, even though I really really like them.  In theory, they are extremely unflattering...pleated and tapered!  Sounds awful!  But paired with the right things, can look really chic and cool!

A tapered leg looks terrible on me, so I rolled them up to create a more flattering sillhouette.  If you are going to wear anything oversized (i.e. boyfriend jeans, blazer, t-shirt), make sure that everything else is well fitting.  Otherwise you might end up looking like a bag lady...or an Olsen twin haha.

This necklace pretty much rocks my world!  It jingles when I move; it's like Christmas came early!  I could not refrain from skipping down the sidewalk just to hear the jingle jangle.  I just could not control myself...I could not.

Waiting to...Fall

<script type="text/javascript"></script>

Alas!  As I am browsing the stores I feast my eyes on boots, cargo pants, muted neutral tones and leather jackets!  Summer is coming to an end and fall is on it's way!  Yes!  Oh yes!  The past couple days have been sunny but somewhat cool...the perfect weather!  I love feeling the wind in my hair when there is a little breeze.  It is so refreshing!  And it makes me feel like I'm in a movie or something.  You know when they show a girl in slow motion with her hair blowing in the wind.  Cheeeesy!

This is such a perfect transitional outfit from summer to fall.  Still light enough for the heat, but incorporating some trends for fall.  Military elements are really hot right now.  I always love military details on my clothing no matter what season.  It adds a little toughness to any look.  Leopard print is also in for fall.  I am itching to purchase a leopard print purse!  That is definitely going on the top of my IT list right now!

After many years of paying close attention to trends, I have found that the clothing of each season stays pretty much the same.  It is the sillhouette and details that really change (For example, the exaggerated shoulder was really popular this past year, I think that's kind of dying down now).  This makes it quite easy to keep your look updated.  Keep your classic pieces for each season, i.e. a leather jacket for fall.  Then you pair it with a trendy piece or two, i.e. the leather jacket with tapered trousers and a statement necklace.  Another tip on trends:  Don't spend too much on trendy items because you may only wear them one or two times (unless you can afford it then by all means...go for it).  Forever 21 and H&M keep up with all the lastest looks and are very inexpensive!

I hope that you have enjoyed my tips for fall shopping and that they are beneficial to you.  When will fall ever get here?!  My boots and jackets are waiting!  And they are getting VERY impatient!

It's Not Easy Being Green

Here we go again...wearing yet another pair of cargo skinnies.  I am absolutely loving this trend!  It is cool, comfortable and chic rolled into one amazing pair of pants!  This trend opened up a whole new set options in the realm of my bottom half!  It becomes so mundane to wear jeans everytime casual attire is what I desire (haha that rhymes!  What a poet I am!).  So in opposition to the title of this post, it is easy WEARING my green cargos!

A Little Romance

The title of this post is in honor of my 3 year wedding anniversary this week!  I am just in a lovey dovey and romantic mood!

I REALLY enjoy being a girl!  This outfit has it all...pink, lace, heels, and a little sparkle!  Light pink and brown have been one of my favorite color combinations recently.  They epitomize romance, softness, and elegance!

This look is a little much for an office, but if you add a tan or cream blazer it would probably be great in a creative work environment.  I love this lace blouse paired with a heavier material skirt!  The material reminds me of a couch (a very pretty one!) or drapes.  One might not think to put these two together fearing that there may be too much going on.  By mixing different textures you create a much more interesting look that will stand out!

I Double Stripe Dare You!

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! :)

The Cat's Meee-ow

Today was just one of those days where my face was strange in every single picture I took!  Not a photogenic day for me.  I actually delete most of the pictures I take...I have to take many before it looks the way I want.  It is a new perspective seeing yourself the way the world sees you.  I recommend that you try photographing your daily ensembles (and then send me the pics so I can share them).  It helps you determine what looks good on you and what doesn't!  There are times that I think I love an outfit, and then I see it in a photo...I will run right back to my closet and change!  We are definitely our own worst critics, but hopefully you won't be too hard on me today!  I cropped my head out of a lot of these pictures, so you could focus on the outfit and not the weird faces I was making!

I am loving this dress from JC Penny.  It was seriously only $5!  It is made of a thin, cotton, t-shirt material, and is so comfortable!  I had a field day at JC Penny the other day!  Everything was so incredibly cute and inexpensive.  The long chain necklace was $5 as well.

These shoes are BCBG, and I got them a while back at Ross.  They have a tiny scratch on the back of the heel, so they were marked down to $17.  There's nothing like finding a good quality brand for a cheap price!  You can find good quality brand name shoes at discount places like Ross, Marshalls, Burlington Coat Factory, and DSW.  Sometimes you may have to dig, or search for sizes, but it is totally worth the extra effort!  I don't really care about brand names...if it's cute, and a decent price I will buy it!  But I do try to buy good quality shoes because they tend to be more comfortable.  After all, I am a shoe girl!  If I had to wear a paper bag, but still had cute shoes on, I would be happy!

Like my new do?  Okaaay...I didn't really chop my hair off.  My hair is just in a low ponytail.   Ever since bobs have been all the rage (a la Rihanna), I have wanted to try it but have never had the guts!  This is a great way to fake it if you don't want the commitment.  It really only works if you have layers in the front.

For some reason, I just love a cutout sleeve.  It's like "oooh, there's my shoulder!"  Kinda hot.  Some girls show off cleavage, some legs, but no... I show off my shoulders!  Calm down there!  Haha.  What strange body part are you proud of?  Ears?  Elbows?  Ok, nobody likes their elbows.  Random.

Zipper detailing is so awesome!  I think the last time I had zippers on the bottom of my pants was when I was 6.  You know you're an 80's kid if you owned a pair of Jordache jeans that zipped up in the back and had a bow above the zipper.  I think they might have been light pink too!  As they say, all trends come back around, but I'm glad the good trends from the 80's came back and not the horrific ones.

Notice in the above picture, my right heel is totally sunk into the ground?  Heels + soft dirt = not a good idea!  I am actually giggling in this picture at all the ridiculousness.  I love moments when I'm alone and just start laughing to myself.  It must look odd and a little crazy, but hey I'm ok with that!  Whenever I do something dorky like trip on my own feet, first I look to see if anyone witnessed it, and THEN I laugh.  You know you do it too!
