Breaking The Rules!

Posted on

As some of you followers know I was told at work that I am no longer allowed to wear heels. I’m not sure how stern my warning was but I haven’t worn heels since. This is actually a problem for me as my heel collection well exceeds my flats collection. So on Friday I decided to test the waters a little and I wore a pair of vintage clogs…….clogs aren’t heels so I thought I would be safe, and no one said anything so I’m going to assume I’m in the clear for clogs 😉
I paired them with a cute little skull dress that my sister got me for my birthday (its from H&M) and I wore a pair of denim cutoffs that I turned into maternity shorts:). The reason I wear the shorts is because I personally find that H&M dresses are quite short and when you add a baby bump into the mix its even shorter. So to save people from seeing my rump all day I played it safe with shorts 🙂

Its a “Lucy” Kind of Day!

Hey all,
Today I woke up wanting to do something a little different with my hair. The idea quickly popped into my head that I would try the “I Love Lucy” hairstyle, as that is what most people call me at work 🙂

My first attempt for this hairstyle. It turned out quite nice. Funny thing is no one called me “Lucy” today.

Today I wore a vintage dress, vintage tooled leather belt, vintage cardigan, vintage necklace and coach shoes. I think dress really complimented the hairstyle 🙂

Here is a little tutorial for this hairstyle if anyone is interested in trying it.

Hello friends,
I have been on a little hiatus for the last few months, but I have news!!! I’m back 🙂 and I’m not alone…. Ive got a lovely little bump now too.
I must say that over the past few months it has been hard to find clothing that accommodates my new addition, and its even harder to find something affordable, fashionable and practical for someone sporting a baby bump.
With that being said I have been trying to find things in my wardrobe that will do this. So this morning I awoke with an outfit in my head that was all based around a vintage 70’s dress I have stored away in one of my many vintage boxes (I have way too many).  So on my search I came across another dress and decided to end my search then and there and just go with it.

Here it is!! This dress is from the 80s. Its nice light and flowey. Not to mention the beautiful lace on the bodice and hem. And one more thing…. ELASTIC WAISTBAND!!!

Here’s a pic of the lace at the back.

I did some quick alterations to the dress by bringing up the waistband and turning the dress into a baby doll style. I then paired it with a great 1970’s vintage tooled leather belt, vintage Roebuck’s denim jacket and vintage cowboy boots.

After all was said and done I felt like a little Southern Bell 🙂 all that was missing was Texas and some line dancin 😉
