Thrifty Thursday

20131206-015320.jpg

Hello Dolls. So anyone who knows me, knows I love thrifting. The excitement you get when you find a bargain or that perfect one of a kind piece. Especially for DIY projects (which I love by the way).

So I happened upon this skirt the other day and thought it was so cute. I grabbed it not even knowing what I would pair it with lol.

I mixed prints and materials a little on this one and loved the outcome. Some stripes and a little jean. It came out pretty cute. I will definitely post some DIY and more of my thrift finds.

The 2013 VMAs

The 2013 VMA’s was full of surprises this year. Some good, some bad and some WTF?! But here’s our run down of what went on.

THE GOOD

More like the amazing, OMG moments of the night.

NSYNC performance. It just brought you back to the days of having their posters on your wall and you jumping up and down on your bed when their videos came on TV and JT was just amazing. They all looked great to.

Lady Gaga the opening act. I was so excited. I love the new song. She looked amazing. That body was on point and she was just as crazy, wild and her performance was amazing. I also loved her gays dancing with her. AAHHHHH just perfection.

THE BAD

Ok so I guess everyone decided to wear the same thing to the awards this year in different ways then? Because all I saw last night was jewels, feathers and lace. Not to mention 2-Chainz looked better in the Versace print pants both he and Grimes wore and I still hated the outfits.

It was so hard to choose some outfits that I loved just for the lack there of. Here were my top 5 best and top 5 worst outfits of the night.

Best

Ciara looked beautiful and showed off her body in her Givenchy Couture feathered gown.

Ellie Goulding. Her dress was amazing for the simple fact it was different, not sheer, see through or lace, lol. The spiked, floor length number with high slit looked beautiful.

Ariana Grande in her Kenly Collins little floral mini was pretty and age appropriate.

Jennifer Hudson (pictured with Adam Lambert who looks sharp btw) looked lovely on the VMA red carpet in a Dior top and skirt. Very nice and well put together. Not as glam as some but hey it’s not feathers, lace or see through lol.

Mary Lambert. Lambert looked beautiful in a floor length sparkly gown.

Worst

Snooki and J Wow. I’m assuming they went prom dress shopping together? Oh wait that’s right it wasn’t a high school prom. You ladies have come a long way with your style but come on.

Iggy Azalea. She’s a beautiful woman but I was so tired of the lace, sheer, and everything else I just couldn’t deal. Her Emilio Pucci sheer gown matched her hair and skin tone on the VMA red carpet. Not a winner for me.

Miley Cyrus. I’m guessing with her new changes and her performance that night she was so excited she just threw on whatever was shiny and jeweled to stand out in the crown? Her Dolce & Gabbana outfit was not a hit with me.

Erin Wasson. I mean really, do I even have to say why she was on this list? It looked like she literally put on a black bandeau top and black boyshorts and slipped on a sheer curtain. She topped that off with a Givenchy turban.

Rita Ora. Some may have been a fan of her Alex Vauthier dress but I can hardly say the same. This feathered long-sleeved gown with white fabric in the front and that black band. I just wasn’t a fan at all.

THE WTF?!

20130826-122716.jpg
Miley Cyrus Performance

Now I have no problem with growth and change but for real though what was up with that performance and those outfits?!

Teddy bear baiting suit
Nude bathing suit
Jeweled Red Carpet pantsuit catastrophe

I’m just saying and why in the world are you grabbing a married mans crotch and twerkin on him when his wife is clearly in the audience? The tongue all out, the whole time bro really?! The facial expressions in the crowd just said it all, I mean really.

Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez

I mean really yes they both looked pretty last night. I’ll skip over the fact that they both wore navy gowns which just reminds me at how young they are. It’s like matching with your best friend on a night out but whatever. I’ll go right to the fact that I thought it was the Taylor and Selena show because the cameras panned to them literally the entire show. Like OMG we get it they are there, but really? Do I have to look at their facial expressions through every single performance?! So many other celebrities I wanted to see that night and all I could see was the same circle of people the entire night. MTV get it together next time.

Well that was all for my take on the 2013 Video Music Awards. What were your best and worst moments of the night?

Hooka Night

20130817-002854.jpg

When people ask me what my style is I usually say whatever I like. Because I don’t feel I really have one. Aside from the fact that I love dresses, I really don’t like defining my style because it’s always changing.

20130817-003002.jpg

I can be in jeans one minute, a dress, sweatpants or cowboy boots and jean shorts the next. I bought this dress 2 years ago from amiclubwear.com and never got to wear it lol. But here it is now, I figured it was casual enough for hooka night lol.

A Midi Love Affair

20130812-004919.jpg

Ok so I said my obsession would become a real thing lol. I’m in love with midi skirts and dresses. I have some in my online shopping cart right now lol. What a coincidence that this one says LOVE lol.

I never buy clothes because of label or price tag. I buy them because I love them. My style represents who I am and I feel that if you have to buy expensive things to look good your doing something wrong.

Don’t get me wrong I love some high end things as well which I will feature soon. But I want my blog to be for everyone. No matter what your pockets look like.

20130812-005359.jpg

My clutch I have had since last Christmas and actually this was my first time using it because I forgot I had it lol.

20130812-005433.jpg

This skirt is also cotton, very breathable and very comfy. I have also developed a love for sneaker wedges and crop tops lol.

Comic Midi Skirt

20130809-145411.jpg

Comic book lovers would appreciate my outfit the other day I would think lol. I was in some storage units yesterday and over course leave it to me to over dress that day lol.

20130809-145648.jpg

I’m having a love affair with midi skirts and dresses. There are still a few I’m preparing my clothes for so you will be seeing more of them lol. I loved this skirt because not only was it so cute (I’m kind of a super hero nerd thanks to my son lol) and inexpensive, It can be dressed up or down.

20130809-150101.jpg

20130809-150123.jpg

I love the fun, vibrant print and the cotton fabric is so breathable and comfortable it’s great. I wore it thinking that it would be a chill work day but of course it was not lol.

As for my sneakers, I like a lot of girls (don’t leave me alone in this lol) was a huge Spice Girls lover lol so when I saw them I had to have them. Yes I know the chunky, ugly platform that some people hate but I secretly love lol.

20130809-150850.jpg

My hair and makeup was very minimal for the day. I’m in the process of changing my hair color so I haven’t been putting much effort into styles or extensions until I figure out my color so a top knot it was for the day lol. I just had some light foundation, concealer, and mascara on and I used my beloved little EOS egg and Milani color statement lipstick in Teddy Bare for my lips and wore my large rimmed black nerd glasses.

The Peplum Trend

Stripes are really in right now. I’ve been seeing them everywhere. So I’ve been getting into the stripe fad myself lol. I found this cute little skirt and thought I would give it a try.

20130521-164115.jpg
The peplum trend has been really popular also. I’ve seen celebrities and a lot of girls everywhere wearing this trend. It adds a really cute girly flare to any outfit.
