End week...


I got a lot of compliments on this dress I made.  :)
Boots eBay and necklace and belt Kohl's.


Shirt made by me, leggins Kohl's and boots eBay.  No clue where the necklace came from but I think it was a gift.

Thanks goodness this long, exhausting week is almost over!

This week...


The top which my damn necklace ripped is from Goodwill.  I figured I could take it apart and use it as a pattern as I've had success doing that before.  Tank and shorts Target, shoes Kohl's, and necklace Zizibeh.


Like this outfit!  Top Japan, tank Wal-Mart, pants Kohl's, necklace made by me and shoes Payless.

My week is dragging!  I hope yours is going by faster!

Some assembly required...

I made some jewelry this weekend. It doesn't belong in my sewing blog so I'm putting it here because of course I plan to wear it with my everyday swag.

Michael's has this line of charms and such called Industrial Chic by Susan Lenart Kazmer and I am nuts for practically every piece. A lot of it's been on clearance so I'm definitely going back for more.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend.

Another day...

Another (albeit small) pile of clothes.  Ugh.  I hate coming home to that because then I have to pick them up and put them away.  Sunday is definitely clothes day.

Anyway, I wore something quasi-professional today.  Sometimes I like to throw people off, keep 'em guessing.  But it still had cute little J★Style touches like the glasses, necklace and tank.

Tank Wal-Mart, pants Target brand from Goodwill, shoes Target, sweater New York & Co brand from Goodwill and necklace Zizibeh.

Well, the week is almost over!  I hope yours was nice.  Mine was slow.

I shouldn't...

I shouldn't pick out outfits in the morning.  This is evidence of my disastrous morning:

And this is what I came up with:

Clearly nothing spectacular.  :/  Top Wal-Mart,  necklace Lia Sophia, earrings Forever 21, pants Goodwill.

I don't know why I am coordinate incompetent in the morning.  Maybe it's too early.  Better luck tomorrow!

After looking over a grueling set of photos and deleting the uglies I accidentally deleted all of them. :/

It's a good thing my photographer has a sense of humor.

(So I took this photo very late in the day if my hair and make up didn't already give that away.)


I love this outfit!  Top made by me, pants Kohl's brand from Goodwill, necklace Lia Sophia and shoes Payless.


Ugh I don't like this outfit though I did get a compliment on it.  I think it's the tank.  It's tight and you can totally see the waistband on the skirt.  Dislike!  I think the rest of it is okay.  Tank Goodwill, sweater Forever 21, necklace Kohl's, skirt ???? and shoes Target.  At least it consists of fall colors.

The problem is I ran out of my preplanned outfits and was so tired after Disneyland I didn't feel like putting any together for this week.  Ergo, I was scrambling around this morning trying to put something together and I ended up with this leaving me less than satisfied.  I was going to do it tonite but I don't feel like it either.  Passing out in front of the TV doesn't help things. 

BTW welcome my new followers Neesan and Kelly Robson!

I hope everyone is having a wakeful week!

Disney vacation...

So we just got back from a magical Disney vacation. I know Disneyland is magical because I dropped my phone and it slid across the park. All this happened with no damage to my phone. Lucky!

Anyway, I tried to be somewhat fashionable during my trip despite the fact that Anaheim had sweltering Phoenix temperatures.  I guess the many Phx visitors that frequented the park that day, well, we brought the AZ heat with us.  There were a lot of people from AZ there!


Top from YesStyle, shoes Payless and pants made by me.


Total Target outfit! The skirt is Target brand from Goodwill and everything else except the Zizibeh boots from Target.

Oh yeah and meeting Jack and Sally was like the highlight of my life.  I'll admit I was a bit starstruck and was rendered speechless.

I hope everyone is having a nice relaxing week!

Goodwill haul...

It's been a long time since I've had time to go to Goodwill on a Sale Day. Yesterday I had a great run and got some really cute things! :)

The red blouse is from New York & Co., not sure about the other two brands:

Forever 21 & Target brand skirts:

Kohl's brand capris (was missing a button, not anymore) and not sure where the blue pair is from:

Score DKNY shirt, Kohl's sweater and aqua shirt and no idea on the striped cardi:

There's one more top which is flowy but it needs to be ironed so no pic today.  I also got a My Cousin Vinny DVD featuring "the two yutes."  All this and I only spent $37.  OMG I rule.

Happy Birthday to me part 2...

So I got the boots! (Which were cheaper than I thought and I had a coupon!)

Thanks Mom! Love love love!

Happy Birthday to me...

So my birthday was this week and I had a lovely time.  As a present for myself, I bought these shoes which I could only get online.  I don't know why but when I saw them I just had to have them!

They are just so unique!  I can't wait to wear them!  :)

Cold front...

A cold front blew in last night and with the wind came the rain and the cold and can I just say...yay! I've been dying of heatstroke lately. Temps over 100 nearly every day have been unbearable in what is supposed to be fall. So I embraced the cooler weather today with a warmer outfit.

But I was hot by the end of the day.  :/  Tank Goodwill, sweater Kohl's, boots eBay, necklace Zizibeh and I cannot remember where I got the skirt from.  I've had it for years and years and I think this is the first time I've ever worn it.  :o

How about you?  Ever have clothes you've never worn but just can't bear to get rid of?

Monday madness...

This is Monday's outfit.  I was trying to bring in fall weather by wearing fall clothes.  Although I tried it on before wearing it, it didn't seem to photograph well.  As I look at it today, I decided that I don't really like it.  So, I put it here as a learning experience.

LOL face.  Tank Goodwill, sweater Target, shoes Target brand from eBay, skirt Forever 21, necklace Lia Sophia.  Note to self: always wear these shoes with socks.  I gots mad blisters.  :(

Thankfully, my job doesn't require me to wear a suit and tie (though I wouldn't really object to uniforms).  I think my outfits look nice but dress code for women is so subjective.  

What do you think about my clothes?

Dinner in Japan...

Well not really but the dress is from Japan. It's my birthday weekend since my birthday is on a stupid weekday. Boo.

Anyway, dinner with the fam at the delicious Cheesecake Factory.

Here's what I wore:

A simple tee dress sure but I think think the details make it special. Of course, there's the obvious Engrish. What's it trying to say?!?!? Then the back border print. I finished it with Kohl's wedges and a Lia Sophia necklace. Happy Birthday to me.
