Damp cotton clouds…

After a crappy day yesterday I relaxed by scoping Pinterest for a few hours while continuing my Fringe marathon. The best part of my day was my ensemble. I wore a white French cuff oxford shirt, grey sweater vest, night watch tartan ankle pants, and maroon pumps. My make up was simple and my hair ended up in a high ponytail. It’s sad that my ensemble was the best part of my day. 

On to today, I woke up on time and it took me about a half hour to decide what to wear. I think I went through three or four ensembles. Before deciding on a teal deep v-neck sweater and grey trousers and my DMs. My hair is probably the worst part. I didn’t have time to curl it and it’s just a stupid mess now. I just hoping that I can get out of my crummy rut. I shouldn’t be too upset it is really cold where I live in upstate NY. And it’s hard sometimes to wear something adorable with these freezing temps. And on that note it’s time to end! Here’s to a better today!
All for now!

Dedicated follower of fashion…

Hello friends, Today I want to talk about Pinterest and how I am obsessed. I spend hours going from one thing to the next looking for recipes, ensemble inspiration, funny nerdy memes, home decor, and hair tutorials. For instance today I spent some time looking for ensemble inspirations for his upcoming work week. And I wouldn’t be neurotic if I didn’t plan all of my ensembles every week. I think I have a good idea on what I am wearing for the upcoming week. I also found an adorable hair tutorial for a suicide roll, I doubt that I will try it any time soon, but maybe if I have an event in the spring I think it would look cute with a sundress and espadrilles. For my many hours that I have spent on Pinterest I have learned easy ways to give my hair a blow out, how to shape my finger nails in a tasteful way, a great recipe for portobello mushroom pizza. I even found an adorable photo from a Chanel runway show of a partial ensemble and I can’t wait to find little bows and stitch them to one of my sweaters as my first blog DIY project (more on this coming soon). I’ve also found some great blogs in the process, my favourite is probably Classy Girls Wear Pearls. But I also enjoy Love Meagan, Atlantic-Pacific, Pink Peonies, and M Love M. I also have been working on taking better photos and will start posting some of my better ensembles. I’ve been practicing by posting to my Instagram, the app makes it easy for me (someone who doesn’t do well with photo editing). And on that note it’s time to end.

All for now,

Strike a violent pose…

I want to talk about fashion exclusively today. Really just my fashion and what I have been wearing lately. It’s mostly black monochromatic or American Horror Story Coven inspired or something really preppy. Today it’s back to black and grey.  I have a super old pair of dress trousers on with a grey Peter Pan collar shirt, black super old cardi and my favourite black Doctor Marten’s which will now and going forward be referred to as DMs. I curled my hair like Kate Middleton, who is my idol. I went easy on the make up since I had a sty for the past few day. I have been trying to make my ensbles more interesting and fun. So far all I have accomplished was wearing all black or a lot of tartan. I see so many great ideas and the bursting closet I have and I just draw a blank. I end up wearing the se things. You could definitely say I am in a fashion rut, I go through them from time to time (as most of is do). My problem is I notice it. Next week will bey week! I will wear something different! I promise! 

All for now!

Reason to Believe

This whole week has been a disaster, and it’s not even over yet… It started with my brother splitting his lips open and getting stitches. No more details on that. Then Monday my mother-in-law fell and broke her nose and arm. It has been a tough couple of days, I know that they will be fine, but it is hard to deal with. 

At any rate the past few days have been unproductive, and I have another sty in my eye and I have to wear my glasses. It’s petty and ridiculous but I hate wearing my glasses to work. So now I need to plan my work ensembles around my glasses. I’ll probably take it easy with my ensembles since I have been taking care of hurt people and dogs for three days. Yay for pants and flat shoes!

All for now!

She’s been living in her white bread world.

Today was pretty unproductive on the domestic front, meaning I washed some dishes took a shower then went for lunch with my mother. And then we went shopping. I got a purple Calvin Klein shirt, two pairs of pumps, one nude, one maroon from Macy’s. Since I am also off of work tomorrow, I think I may try and write a bit, maybe vacuum…

All for tonight,

To compesate for [her] ordinary shoes…

It’s been a really long time since I’ve put a post up. A lot has changed recently. My bracket on my exposed canine poped off and I had a dental emergency, I have a laser treatment scheduled to hopefully correct what my orthodontist screwed up. I have about ten months to go with my treatment. Hopefully it goes by fast. I am really tired of my limited diet and the pain I experience on a daily basis.
I sprained my foot in September at my birthday party no less… I am all healed now, but being on crutches for a week and a half was horrible. 
On a happier note, I was promoted at work to “Lead Teller”, something I have worked for for about two years now. Which is really exciting.
I started to work out again, I go in spurts with my motivation. Like doing sixty squats in total during the commercials of the Golden Globes telecast Sunday night… brazen…
I came up with a few new story ideas, I have yet to get them out on “paper”. We’ll see how many of them actually evolve into an actual story of some sort.
I have been listening to Paul Simon, Billy Joel, Fleetwood Mac, and Cat Stevens like it was going out of style. I can’t get enough. I am listening to “Diamonds On the Soles of Her Shoes” as we speak. It was a time when songwriting meant something.
I have been more into fashion lately than ever before. I find this to be a good thing, my dear husband would disagree. I am constantly trying to create fun, new ensembles that I can apply to any activity. I even signed up for Polyvore, that was fun for about ten minutes and then I went on Pinterest for two hours. I just ordered a new pair of nude pumps, they should be coming soon. I recently have been trying to emulate either Kate Middleton, or the cast of American Horror Story: Coven. The cast’s costumes are amazing and I have always been fascinated by wearing really edgy clothing and making it feminine and pretty. And Kate is my idol. I want to be just like her. I do my hair like her all the time, and I always try to look well put together and classy, especially in my new position. I’ll be more “on” this blogging thing in the future and I plan to take more photos of my ensembles.
And lastly, the books I am currently reading: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. (Yes, I am reading and it is probably the twentieth time at that)

Til next time,
