FATSHION FACEOFF: ANIMAL BROOCH

Hey y'all! It's Wednesday and that means it's Fatshion Faceoff time! You can read more about the FF here. This week, it was Mouna's turn to pick our challenge, and she chose... an animal brooch! I usually park my bluebird brooch on my denim jacket, so I thought I should give a vesty home to my little red bird (robin? cardinal? I dunno.)





sunnies: RayBan via Zappos
earrings (similar): Marc by Marc Jacobs
bird brooch: ebay
vest (similar): thrifted and diy'd
shirt: Forever21+
skirt (similar): Target
bracelets: here, here
flats: BCBG via DSW

Now that you've seen my take on the animal brooch, you should totally go check out the other Fatshion Faceoff girls' brooches and outfits.

NYC: WHAT TO WEAR?!

Like the good blogger I am, I've already started thinking about packing for NYC and I've been using my sick-time to scour Pinterest and some of my favorite blogs to get outfit ideas flowing. Below are some of the top summer styles that I want to try during my trip, using things I already have in my closet. :)

What pieces would you pack for summer in NYC? I've never been before, so help a girl out if I missed anything super important (besides comfy flat shoes, of course). ;)

FATSHION FACEOFF: PETER PAN COLLAR

Hi everyone, it's Wednesday and time for the Fatshion Faceoff! If you're new to the blog you can read all about the FF here. I love a good collar, but the for past couple of days I've been feeling sickly, so I've decided to do a little roundup of my favorite peter pan collar outfits I've worn. (I'm sure you don't want to see the sweatshirt and ratty topknot and runny nose I'm rocking at the moment, right? Right.) Anyway, I'll try to post a new collared outfit later on this week, but until then, hopefully the pics below will be sufficient. :)




Now that you've seen some fun ways to wear a peter pan collar, make sure to check out my Fatshion Faceoff babes. I'm sure they're looking fabulous this week. :)

SHOP MY CLOSET UPDATE

Hey y'all! I know I've been posting about it non-stop on various social media things, but if you would take a moment to check out my blog shop sale, I would very much appreciate it! 

You see, I realllyyy need to clear out my closet (like I added more than 50+ new listings kind of clear-out) and I'm definitely down for making deals. There are sizes L-3X and brands like Asos Curve, 17Sundays, Forever21+, Macy's, Torrid, Old Navy, etc. Let's just say that now is a great time to make on offer on something you like. ;) Also, I'm willing to ship internationally. Thanks so much!

FATSHION FACEOFF: WEDGE SANDALS

Hey y'all! It's Wednesday and that means it's Fatshion Faceoff time! You can read more about the FF here. This week, it was my turn to pick our challenge, and I chose... wedge sandals! You know me and my love of shoes, right? Right. ;) Here's how I wore mine:








sunnies: Ralph Lauren
vest: Calvin Klein via Macys
shirt: Old Navy
bracelets: Bluefly, Forever21
bag: vintage Coach
sandals (simliar, similar): Steve Madden via Zappos

These wedges are surprisingly comfortable, especially for their height. I'm debating bringing them with me to NYC next month, but we'll see if they make it into the suitcase. Packing is brutal, you guys, and you can bet I'm not looking forward to it! So these bad boys might stay home in exchange for a pair of flats or something. We shall see! If you've been to NYC, do you have any packing tips for me? :)

You know what else is awesome? My Fatshion Faceoff girls' outfits, duh! You should totally go take a look. And while you're visiting Olivia, make sure to wish her an early happy birthday (it's tomorrow!). Happy Bday, Liv! ;)

DOUBLE VISION: SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW

Hey party people! Today Hanna and I are back with another Double Vision for you! (You can read more about DV here). It was my turn to pick our challenge, so I chose something old, something new. That way you get to see how we remix some oldies but goodies in our closet, and we get to show you something new, too! Here's my take:






sunnies: RayBan via Zappos
necklace: ASOS
vest: thrifted and diy'd
dress: Forever21+
belt: Target
bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs

So, everything in this outfit is relatively old, except for the sandals. I wore the crap out of the vest and dress last summer, and the bag is a bday present from years ago that my boyfriend gave me. I should use it more, but because it's white, I tend to keep it safely in it's dustbag way up in my closet. I'm gonna leave it out for a while, though. What's the point of having such a fabulous piece if I hardly use it, ya know?

Now let's go see what Hanna's rocking this week on her blog! I'm sure she looks totes amaze. :)

And if you haven't already taken a peek, you can still check out my blog sale HERE. Lots of good things still available, sizes XL-3X, and I'm accepting all reasonable offers. I added more stuff earlier this weekend, so there's probably something for everyone. :) Thank you!
