Musical Wednesday

The past few days have been pretty bad for me. So in order to cheer myself up I have been listening to music that makes me happy! 

Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" has been on repeat, I have always thought the song was amazing, plus her outfits in the video were so cute! 

Give Me All Your Luvin'. It's by Madonna and feauturing Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. The outfit changes in the video are so wacky, I was never a huge fan of Madonna but this song I do sure enjoy!!

What songs are on repeat on your iPod's right now?

My top played this week are: 
  1. Mariana's Trench - Fall Out
  2. Mariana's Trench - Haven't Had Enough
  3. The Wanted - Glad You Came
  4. Katy Perry - Part of Me
  5. Hedley - One Life
  6. Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe
  7. She and Him - Why Do You Let Me Stay Here



I love this Mariana's Trench video! It's so unique (kind of like the band) and the girl is so pretty in it! I have a total girl crush...



Katy Perry never ceases to amaze me...she is so wonderful!





Hedley. This video makes me THINK! It makes me want to do more...

Fringe

Readers!

So sorry for my 14 day hiatus. Someone tried to break into my blogger account and in turn I got locked out! 

I had an outfit post done 12 days ago to show you all, but I guess it's better late than never! 

I love fringe, and got inspired by recent posts about upcoming music festivals like Coachella (next year I am going!). So I got my fringe Jessica Simpson vest out, my most favorite Frye boots and my lucky white lace dress(not sure where the dress is from, it was vintage!). As you can see in the photos there was still snow on the ground, but it was a nice 31 degrees Celsius out the day I took the photos!

I can't wait for real Spring weather, I found 2 pairs of Levi 501 cutoff shorts this weekend! TWO pairs! And they fit me just how I wanted them too. One pair is cut off and you can see the ragged ends (these ones are tighter fitting) and the second pair is a loose fit and the shorts are a tad longer and rolled up. I found them at a Winners, I guess they had imperfections and were supposed to be jeans but Levi's turned them into shorts. Their loss is my gain I guess! 

Also pleased to announce with the winner of the Footloose DVD giveaway! 
Congratulations Leah Baird!

Make sure to enter my March giveaway, it ends this Friday (March 30th) **ENTER HERE!!!!!**

Thanks for reading, I hope you guys are having a wonderful week so far.

Blogger's Wardrobe



Today is all about Blogger's Wardrobe! I am obsessed with the brands that are represented on the site, the site itself makes me giddy. The main brand I love that is featured on Blogger's Wardrobe is Finsk. Finsk has got to be one of the most original footwear brands I have come across in my time of loving fashion (that's been a long time!) plus, they are affordable and the shoes make definate staples to any fashionista's wardrobe.  Bjorn Borg is also featured on the site. If you haven't heard of Bjorn Borg you are missing out on interesting bathing suits, underwear and the most comfortable shoes I think my feet have even had on (besides house slippers of course). The under garments from Bjorn Borg can make you feel beautiful and fun underneath all of your favorite clothing, everything matters when you are a fashionista (underwear too!) I highly suggest this brand to anyone who wears underwear (I hope all of you do!!). Last but not least (of my favorites people! I would wear/use everything on the Blogger's Wardrobe!) is Hello Dolly. Hello Dolly has beautiful feminine pieces, they kind of remind me of hippies and that's what I love about the brand. The pieces are made from high quality fabrics and are perfect for street style whether you are in the big city or in the country with your cowboy boots on! 

I love Blogger's Wardrobe. I know you are all dying to know why so here is my list of why I want to be a member:

  • You can interact with Brands and Others bloggers!
  • You can receive items that are not main stream and will be unique and different for your blog
  • My closet is in need of some creative and unique brands. I am getting tired of the same old things hanging in my walk-in. Living in the rural area makes it hard to get quality items (unless I pay duty and high shipping costs!)
  • I like trying new and exciting things and that's what Blogger's Wardrobe is all about! Interacting with others, promoting exciting brands and meeting other bloggers.
  • Bloggers are all different. That's what makes us interesting right?! Blogger's Wardrobe gives it's blogger members choices of items that they can receive. Sometimes the gifts we get aren't always our style, so Blogger's Wardrobe has made it possible for Blogger's to get something they will more than likely enjoy and wear time and time again! Choices are a wonderful thing to have. Everybody is different, it's what makes the world beautiful! That's why Blogger's Wardrobe is so cool and advanced. Picking out something I LIKE from a list of brands? YES PLEASE!
  • Blogger's Wardrobe allows you to have wonderful perks (Hello Fashion Week!) 
  • Blogger's Wardrobe let's you interact with other bloggers from all over the world (Or so I understand, I am not a member of this exclusive group!)
  • Blogger's Wardrobe allows for creativity. Hey, isn't that what this is all about?? 

Not only would being a member of Blogger's Wardrobe be purely magical, it would help me in my goal to reach 1,000,000 pageviews (half way there guys!) and it would allow me and my readers to find out about new and upcoming brands of clothing, accessories and so much more. It would be such an honor to be a member. 

My blog is all about Fashion and Beauty. I want to someday have it bigger and better than any blog. I want girls to come here looking for influences and fashion! Just like how I go to certain blogs doing the same thing. 

This blog is a tool for me to get out and talk about what I love...fashion! If it's a celebrity event I will have photos. Personal fashion posts are mandatory and happen weekly. Beauty reviews? All the time! Celebrity influences? YES! My readers come here for all of the above, and I am completely blessed for every single reader I have.

My personal style is a throwback to all sorts of themes from iconic eras, like good girl 1950's, mod 1960's, free-spirited 1970's, goth 1980's, grunge 1990's... you know just about everything! I am girly and fun but I do have a spunky side especially when it comes to fashion. (Oh hello there combat boots!) If it’s gothic, pastel, pretty or pink I’ve probably spent hours fawning over it. I try to gather inspiration from the most unpredictable of sources (like vintage Barbies and Polly Pockets), so I myself can be unique and unpredictable! I get the most pleasure out of replicating types of characters from films, fables, novels, and illustrations.

Being a part of Blogger's Wardrobe would be a dream come true!

P.S Some of my personal inspirations are below.  Personal style, movies, history, television and designer/celebrities.

The Olsen twins have the most unique and creative style. I someday hope to be looked up to like they are!

Elephants plus elegance.

It's true!!

Camilla Belle. Celebrity look a like and someone who knows how to have fun in her photoshoots and will her style! 

Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl (played by Leighton Meester) is basically everything in a high class fashionista. I like her outfits on the show, plus her attitude is to be admired!

My favorite...Marie Antoinette. The movie was amazing (did you see the hair pieces and the dresses!!) and the story itself is something to marvel at.
Vintage fur and my grandmother's Fendi purse!
Grey Maxi. A staple in my wardrobe

ME :) In my favorite shoes and favorite dress. Just going for a stroll.






The Hunger Games Premiere

On March 12th outside of the Nokia theatre it was the Hunger Games premiere. We all are obsessed with "The Games". The books are addicting, I could never put them down. Now a movie? With new up and coming actors and actresses...I am so excited and I can't wait for the 23rd to go see the movie!!!

What did you guys think of the fashion at the red carpet? 

I really loved Jennifer Lawrence's dress, it was stunning! Liam Hemsworth looked pretty dapper himself (Miley Cyrus is a lucky girl).

Enjoy the photos, pretend you were there :) 

I have two giveaways going on right now!!!!

Walking on Sunshine

Yesterday it was a warm 13 degrees outside! For March in New Brunswick the weather is quite hot! I am not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing...you know; Global Warming is bad and I think that's why the temperature is so high.

This is one of my favorite dresses, it was featured on Gossip Girl and worn by Blair Waldorf in Season 2. It's beautiful, delicate and grecian. It's made by 3.1 Phillip Lim and it is one of those things in my closet that I am too nervous to wear in fear that it will get stained or pulled.

Because it was so sunny outside, I decided to throw on my sunshine yellow dress and my favorite Manolo Blahnik shoes from Sex and the City and take some photos so I can share them with you guys.

After a long day at work my hair was dreadful and I was quite tired so sorry for the look I have going on in the photos!

Do you have any favorite items in your closet that you just cannot bear to wear in fear they will get ruined?

Let me know your thoughts!
