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!

Black and Brown? Get Out Of Town!

November 3, 2010 12:32 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Who says that black and brown don't go together?  Throw that out the window!  I looove black and brown together!  It is such a cool and modern combination.  Any shade of brown...tan, chocolate, and my favorite CAMEL!  I once saw Jessica Alba wearing a black dress with a camel colored belt and instantly fell in love with those colors together.  Add another muted color like army green and you have an awesome color pallette!

I think I'm in love...with this brown biker vest.  I am going to be wearing it a lot because it just goes with everything.  These black wedge heel boots are made by Tommy Hilfiger and are so incredibly comfortable.  I have been on the hunt for some wedge boots for a while, and finally found them at Marshall's for $35.  It is so worth it to shop at discount stores, you can really find some amazing deals.  I hardly ever shop at the mall anymore except to go to Forever 21 or H&M.  These shoes would normally sell for $100 at Macy's.  How can you beat that deal?  Jeez...

To The Max

October 27, 2010 11:57 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

I must apologize for the lack of posts lately, life just gets a little crazy sometimes!  This maxi skirt is my new favorite go-to comfy item!  It's a little boho with this fringe vest, and clogs are the perfect balance to the silhouette.  I just can't get enough of those clogs!  What do you think about long skirts?  Would you wear this look?

The Short Of It

October 22, 2010 12:55 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

Since it has been raining a bit where I live I have been drawn to my hat collection a lot more frequently.  My hair turns to an awful, frizzy, mess in the rain and I would rather just avoid it altogether!  Not only that, but I am starting to get roots again!  Almost time for another hair appointment!

So what do you think of shorts with tights?  I love it because it enables you to wear shorts when it's cold!  It opens up so many more style options the colder months.  When I first wore shorts, tights and heels I felt a little hoochie (are people still saying that?) but when I asked my husband, he said it looked nice.  He is always my gauge in hoochie-ness!  I can always count on him for the truth!  I don't think he wants his wife parading around in booty shorts!  Heehee.

Grey and green is my new favorite color combination.  My husband actually wore some grey shorts and a green shirt the other day (by my suggestion).  He originally thought it didn't match but I explained to him that grey is a neutral and basically goes with anything!  You would think that being so into fashion, that I would want to style everyone I know!  Believe it or not, I don't normally pick out my husband's clothes!  I just throw in little suggestions here and there!  I tell him "You know sports, but I know fashion!"  To each his own!

How amazing is this purse?  It is Nine West and I got it at Marshall's for $15 because the clasp was broken.  I fixed it!  I love deals like that because a lot of damaged items are fixable!  You just have to make sure that it is worth the discount.  In this case I saved about $15.  Totally worth it!

Just being silly.  Seriously, I look so ridiculous when taking pictures of myself.  Just me...by myself...with a tripod...jumping around.  Ahhh the humiliation.

More silliness...

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...

Something Old, Something New

October 19, 2010 1:42 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

How freakin' awesome is this skirt?!  I paid a visit to some local antique shops and found this vintage real leather beauty for $14.  I am sooo in love with it.  Actually, I am in love with this entire outfit.  It is a size 4, but is so tiny that it feels like it was made for me!  The shirt was purchased at Target for $7.  I don't think I've loved two pieces together this much EVER!

This look definitely has a vintage vibe to it.  The silhouette of the skirt.  The pearls.  The lace.  When wearing vintage items it is important to add modern items so you don't look like you stepped out of a 50's magazine.  The pearls are vintage-inspired, but the layers and layers of them make them a modern statement necklace.  The feather earrings and statement heels complete it!  I am defintely NOT a minimalist!

Yaba Daba Doooo It Yourself Halloween Costume!

October 18, 2010 3:41 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Since Halloween is right around the corner, I thought I would dedicate a post just to costumes!  Every true fashionista has at least a little creative bone in their body and Halloween is definitely the day to utilize it!  My husband and I don't usually dress up, but last year we attended a costume party so we had no choice.  We went to the Halloween store to look at the costumes, only to find that there was not one decent looking costume under $50!  RIDICULOUS!  To think how many shirts that I could buy with that money...or for that matter, 2 pairs of shoes!  So....I decided to bust out the sewing machine and start creating!  We decided on Fred and Wilma Flinstone.  If this costume is of interest to you, I am going to explain how to make it!  If you know how to use a pair of scissors (which I hope you do, heehee), have beginner sewing skills, and can use fabric glue, then you WILL be able to do this!  I have faith in you!

This is what you will need: All of the items can be purchased at the fabric or craft store

*A couple of yards of orange fleece (big enough to fit your man)

*3 sheets of black felt 8 1/2 by 11

*Fabric glue

*Bright blue cotton fabric (about a half a yard)

*A couple of yards of white jersey fabric (big enough to fit yourself)

*Styrofoam balls about 1-1 1/2 inches (these can be found in the artificial flower section) Find them HERE

*Skinny white ribbon (enough to tie around your neck)

*Earring hooks and backs Find them HERE



*Sewing machine or needle and thread

*White, orange and bright blue thread


I'll start with the tie...the easiest part!  If your guy has a tie in his closet, use it as a guide.  Lay the tie on top of the blue fabric.  Then cut around the entire tie leaving about 2 inches extra on each side.  It doesn't have to be perfect, so don't worry!

Then you fold all of the edges over about a half inch and iron them so you can see the crease (Note: I am using paper for this illustration).  Time to take out your fabric glue!  Just glue down all of the edges and let it sit for 24 hours.  It is a good idea to lay a book on top to flatten it.

Now for the man dress (don't tell him I said that lol).  Fold the orange fabric in half making sure the the folds are at the top of the garment.  Use one of your man's t-shirts and lay it on top of the fabric with the top of the shoulders lining up with the top of the where the folds are.  This is basically to make sure it fits him.  If he wears tight fitting shirts, you might want to use a baggier shirt.  Fold the arms in so you don't cut them.  Now, leaving a couple of inches on each side (just like the tie), you are going to cut the outline of the shirt also leaving it long enough to go past your man's knees.  Here is a little mini illustration I cut out...okay, I know I'm silly.  See, it's a little mini shirt with the arms folded in!  Lol.  Silly, silly girl.

Now remember the fabric is folded in half from the top, so you should already have a front and back of the man-dress.  There should be a hole at the top for the head so it looks something like this...

Next, cut the jagged edges in the bottom of the fabric.  So it should look like this...

Time to sew the sides together.  You can put the garment on the guy and measure it to fit him so it's not too tight.  Make sure to leave arm holes!  The finishing touch is to cut the black felt in to kind of rounded triangles and glue them (with fabric glue) randomly on the front and back of the garment.  Leave it to dry for at least 24 hours!

The Wilma costume is very similar to Fred's.  Use one of your tank tops with about a 2 inch strap as the pattern for your dress.  Make your dress as short or as long as you want!  After cutting out the pattern on the white jersey fabric, just cut one of the sleeves off!  I try it on first to see where I should make the cut.  Cut a long strip of the extra white fabric for the belt.  This is definitely optional, but you know me...I always have to have a belted waist!

For the earrings, take the earring hooks and push them about halfway into one of the styrofoam balls.  Then remove them.  Put superglue on the end of the earring hook and then put it back in.  Hold the earring back there for about a minute until the glue dries.  Now you have your earrings!  Warning: they are not the most comfortable things to wear, but it really makes the costume!

Now the necklace...Take a needle and string the white ribbon through the eye.  Then string the styrofoam through, until you have a necklace to fit your neck!  The wig is optional, but I bought mine at Walmart for about $5!  It was a long wig, and I just pinned the hair up to create Wilma's hairstyle.  Fred's caveman club was purchased at a Halloween store for about $7.  Message me with any questions you may have about making these costumes!  I'm sure they will be a hit at your Halloween party!

Jump Around

October 12, 2010 11:57 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Ahhhh...I absolutely love something that is comfortable and chic at the same time.  I do believe that jumpers/rompers are here to stay. If the fit is right, there is nothing easier to wear than a one piece outfit. This one I got at Urban Outfitters on the sale rack for $10 (I'm telling you I AM the queen of bargains!), and the fit is DIVINE! Although I don't normally shop there (the prices are a little more than I like to pay) Urban Outfitters has some extremely well tailored clothing.  Sometimes you definitely get what you pay for! The top of this jumper is a little slouchy and the bottom fits closer to my body, which is exactly the way I want it to fit.  I adore the tapered legs.  Finding the right fit can be tricky.  In my case, since I am small I want to create more of an hourglass figure.  The pockets and drapey fabric on the sides add volume to my hips.  If you don't want to call attention to your hips, you should avoid this sillhouette.  Instead, look for a straight leg that is not cropped.  Jumpers come in all shapes and sizes, so there is one for every body type!  But I'm begging you PLEASE do not wear the denim pant, tight fitting jumpers.  I don't know who started that, but they are not attractive on anyone!  Blah!

I have owned this hat for quite awhile, but have always been a little afraid of it.  I wore it to church once, and felt like the ladies who wear the giant hats and block everyone's view!  The more I wear it though, the less weird I feel!  I guess some things just take some getting used to.  Now I am on the hunt for a big black floppy hat, which will probably scare me too.  The people behind me in church will not be happy.  I'll have to make sure to slouch in my chair.  I apologize in advance. :)

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!
