Dust off that tux jacket!

Gone are the days when a tux was worn by men only, and only on very special occasions. I have found quite a few very stylish ladies wearing them with the most casual of looks...and what an impact!!!

^Punky B


^Garance Dore

^Fashion Junkie


^Am lul

^Altamira NYC


I don't own such an article of clothing, but if I did, I would definitely be wearing it out. My husband owns a tux, but (luckily for me) he's not the same size as me LOL

I love all the outfits above, but first prize goes to this girl, for originality with the colour:

^Dress me up

Canvas totes

I have an army green canvas tote with black stars from H&M that I love, but I'm looking for another one with a funny message or drawing...something that will make me (and others looking at it) smile each time I pick it up. They're such a great "green" idea too...and pretty simple to make, if you have the patience :)

Seeing red...

Red DIY skirts that is:

^Childhood flames


^Engla's showroom

^Oooops, I can't recall who this is...if anyone knows pls let me know :)

^Closet kisses


Camille at Childhood flames was kind enough to provide her readers with step by step instructions on how to make this skirt, but it would just be so much easier to pull out the credit card and purchase one :)
On the other hand, Almah is selling them, but she's all the way in Sweden and I'd have to deal with customs, currency and the whole bit :(
I think I'm waiting for someone to knock at my front door with one in my size LOL

Great minds think alike?

I noticed that some of my favorite bloggers seem to love a certain H&M floral top:

Are you also the lucky owner of this sought after item?

Another obsession...

Maybe I shouldn't call them obsessions...I mean I don't dream about these things, or kiss my monitor when I see a picture of them, or call them just to hear their voice and then hang up...ok wait, that last one didn't make sense, but you get the idea. I'm feeling a very balanced appreciation for the following: BLACK AND WHITE STRIPED TOPS (as seen in these very stylish girls:

Can anyone tell me where I can find a similar top? I have one that's a few years old and just doesn't cut it - it's too short.

I really need to install Photoshop on my laptop, so I can create collages...until then, however, I'll have to continue posting a bunch of pictures, cause there's no way I'm sitting at my desktop computer! LOL
Which reminds me: how did I ever live without my macbook?

My latest obsession

I may be a little old to be wearing a "playsuit" or "romper", but I really want one, what can I do?! Maybe I'd just wear it around the house, or to the beach, but if I find one...I'm getting it! :)
I owned one when I was around 9, and I remember they weren't too comfortable when I sat down (if you know what I mean hehe), so I would try to get one that slouched a bit.
I currently have an ebay search going for the new rogan romper at target - wish me luck!!
These black rompers/playsuits are divine:
