Grow Up Already!!!!!!!!!!

20 Trends You're Too Old To Wear But Actually Who Cares

I saw this article and thought wellllllll lemme see if I break the rules.

LOLOL it was like almost every rule.

Literally bins in my room overspilling with over-the-top denim.  See here, too.
More vintage 90s super tight and crazy jeans shown here on IG.

'Peek-A-Boo bra straps' are a NO apparently 

Entire bra showing in post here.

NO outrageous socks, platform footwear, and sleazy dresses.
That sums up a huge portion of my entire aesthetic.  

Below I'm breaking a number of rules including short cut-off shorts and crop-tops lolol

Let's not even discuss how all my shoe shopping ventures have me literally on  or something.  Srsly I stalk these silver glitter shoes lol!!!!!


I was going to all systematically go through this whole article showing how I don't follow any of the rules, but I'm already bored of my own post.  
Off to check blogs and see what you're wearing and doing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is just real.  I totally let other people how I'm dressing when we're going out.  I love a good outfit discussion believe u me 
But, for real tho I do.
I also enjoy hashtags. And memes.  I might luv IG a lil bit.  But, not enough to marry it.

Cheap Fun

Although some people think I just dress absolutely random and crappy, I'm sort of really picky about what I'll wear.  A long time ago I saw the most perfect collar here for $165.  I LOVED it, but couldn't afford.

Flash forward to this one for $12.85 including shipping!!!

I am so glad the weather is getting cooler so I can wear it.  I will say you have to have a kind of long neck.  Or maybe just not a short neck.  If you think your neck is small this collar will be too big.  Not fashion-wise, but like, too tall for your neck.  

Sadidas hat info shown here.  Vintage silver jewelry as usualsss.

I've always liked big o-ring collars.  Some style aspects stay the same I guess. 
Old 90s pic in the collar I swear I should still have and can't find.  Nice borrowed and wrinkled dress!!!
This was for my bff's bday night years ago---soooo fun :D

Dress Up Situations

What's your dress up look?

I showed one of my looks here with a strapless thrifted dress.  I tried on and thought about keeping both these looks below.
First the velvet Betsey Johnson dress:

Asymentrical, gorgeous colors, rich velvety texture.  Def one way to go.
Dress listed here.

Next is this flashy gold bodysuit.  Very glam with heels and I feel a sexy dress-up option if you're thinking outside the box or whatever.  

Bodysuit listed here.

This was me serving you some Sadidas realness here as my final but actual look for the day.  Completely oversized Urban Outfitters dress and neon yellow exposed strappy bra.

This dress below was part of my personal collection for ages despite the fact it's an xs and didn't fit.  I've squeezed into it, but it's just too small.  It's the most gorgeous 90s Cache label floaty black and brown velvet wood nymph asymmetrical draped neck looking number.

This dress listed here.

I'm actually laboring on this Labor Day weekend bcuz that is the nature of small biz :D

Just everything about this hat and all the variations.  LOLOL

Back to School and soooooo HAPPY and Dogs in the Picture

So are the kids tho!!!  They're super excited.  They love getting their book-bags and seeing their friends.  Summer drives me a bit bonkers with work because it's the slow sales time, so I'm stoked the seasons changing and getting back into some fun and inexpensive second-hand styles--seeing what everyone is wearing---all the fall fashion!

One of the best things I did recently was get to visit my Grandma for the second year in a row.  When I used to live in Florida it was just such a long drive and I'm so much closer now.  The Wrecking Crew was mildly bored but happy racing small cars down my Grandma's wheelchair ramp in her garage and we got a lovely tour of Maxeys from my little cousin's son that lasted all of about 5 minutes lolol #smalltown

My mom was there, too.  She constantly worries about my Grandma's health and complains she doesn't eat enough veggies, but she's 85.  She doesn't eat veggies and one of her ovens is used to store candy and cookies.  But she's 85.  She doesn't care and eats what she wants no matter what my mom says.

I really like how tan the wood paneling makes up look!!!!

My Grandma has two of the most spoiled dogs and they're called Cocoa Puff and Cookie Dough.  She always wants them both in the picture, but it looks like we only got Cocoa Puff.  Or is that Cookie Dough???  Hard to tell rn. I like all the dogs in the family pic, too!!!  Last time I brought Foxy with me and it made Cocoa Puff extremely jealous!  He loves my Grandma <3

Now here is an amazing quality side-by-side studio collage shot of me modeling some summer lewks on IG. I get a lot of compliments on this strapless little cotton floral print dress.  So many compliments that a girl had me checking the tag and OH YEAH it's actually a F@dedGlory label from W@lmart that I got secondhand from Goodwill for $5.  But, I love it.  The first look on the right with second-hand wooden-sole heels from Banana Republic in Florida at my mother's house and I was still blonde!!!  Pic on the left is back at home and I'm a brunette wearing knee socks and sneakers. I dyed my hair just to switch it up, but also to go longer between getting my hair done, but the color faded quick.  It's so damaged. 

Nowwwww the election.  The fuck is going on in this US election?  Everyone's like don't talk about politics and I could care less about polite conversation, but I just don't even know how to talk about it seriously.  I just watch John Oliver and think about what everyone around the world must be thinking and then I laugh and then I freak out about the state of affairs that is the US government---I mean, this happens almost every election LOL, but this one seems more serious folks.  I did not see this coming.  

Checking all your blogs soon :D 

Love & Light,

Meme lyfe:

I think we can all agree he really captured something good with this portrait and it is not lost on me how he included his dogs...  As discussed b4 earlier in this very post.  And astronaut's are smart as fuck.

This next one is too real sometimes.  It's funny now, but not when it's happening. 

Or answer the door!!

Tova K

I've been feeling fashionably challenged and uninspired---bored with my clothes---bored with style---so I'm turning back to my old fashion inspo sources.  I first saw Tova K in a StyleLikeU video shown here---seriously plz take a look!!!

I used to watch these videos constantly for inspo.
Her IG is fantastic---all these pics are from here feed here!!!

Her accessory and textile and print mixing is beyond next level.

I'm OBSESSED with this shirt of hers here:

And also this look she posted----I would wear this from head to toe LOVE IT:

Turning to all u in blogger land to inspire me to get dressed and feel good about it.  It sucks when you're not vibing with your closet.
I've also scheduled an appt. with my hairdresser.  I had to cancel the last one months ago bcuz $$$, but I'm issuing a challenge to my self to squeeze in a hair day.  I feel like I've been doing fun stuff, but my lewks are suffering lol

Some goodies tho...  One day during our NY travels we decided to pop into a TJMaxx.  Now you know CandyMan and I both love Adidas and Puma, see some looks here, here, and here, and even though it's a box store---they happen to carry a LOT of Puma and Adidas stuff.  I had accidentally left CandyMan's Sadidas shirt in a friend's car the night we went to Queens and so we went looking for a replacement for him to wear and I spotted these PANTS:

I ran over to the rack when I saw the prints!!!!  I had a pair of men's LOUDMOUTH golf pants before shown here that I ended up getting rid of bcuz I didn't love the fit of the men's style.  But, these two pairs were AHHHHHMAZING!!!!!  I wanted them both but noooooo funds!!  I did get one pair. I'm sort of obsessed with red, white, & blue...  This actually prompted me to go ahead and get the rainbow pair bcuz I've done a lot of red, white, & blue lately.

The LEWK at mom's house on a Saturday night in Tampa LOLOLOL!!!

Off to read blogs!!!!!

Oh yeah, but just in case u think I'm just too sexy, too cute, imma show a little more...

I had a busted varicose vein that was gnarly and so big it couldn't just be lasered, but had to be removed.  Super sexy thigh high compression sock!!!  Stitches!!!  I wore my long vintage Made in India skirt (last shown here) thrifted to hide the bandages. Happy to take them off today :)

Love & Light,


P.S. v necessary meme time

I just want to say that I do like a few people that are running---but COUCH flavor.  I have straight laughed for like a year over that!!!!!  Good stuff.  Wait.  Hope I haven't already shared this one...

Next stop after Hunter...
We were super lucky to have CandyMan's cousins and family and friends from upstate NY ready to host us.  His younger cousin Brent is a talented musician and producer in the group Sweatpants Money.  He was ready to scoop us up and head into Queens----

 for an amazing throw down by .....

I was blown away by Durban's TekLife hour long set after two of the headliners.  It's apparently under the terms footworks and is Chicago's answer to west coast and Miami bass.  They fucking brought it.  Low and grimy and hard-hitting with lots of hard rap samples.  GOOD STUFF.   He was downstairs in the basement of the club.  Kaleigh, Brent's gf, who is absolutely the most fun and sweet girl, would turn to me, grab my face with both hands, and scream at me, "You're in a basement in Queens, BITCH!!!!"

They also took us tubing down the Hudson river.  CandyMan obvi grew up doing it, but I've only ever tubed in Florida and this was really just super lovely, gorgeous, beautiful.  Plus, like I said, our hosts we're super fun and pretty much made the vacation <3

My entire bathing suit, all 3 pieces were bought in a mix/match sale online Victoria's Secret.  The bottoms are a little small, but it's not stopping me from wearing them.  Sunnies on both of us are from very cheap mall kiosk lolol!  No jewelry or phone on the river, so these pics at the beginning are it!!!
From left to right clockwise starting with CandyMan/Zach/Cousin Brent/Zach's sister/her fiancé/Kaleigh/ME

Now Zach in this pic down here with CandyMan.  Zach is superrrrrrrrr cool and chill and I'll actually have to do another post about him because he is a talented artist that makes instruments.

After our tubing adventure we went back to CandyMan's Aunt Elaine's house in Lake Luzerne.  She is the one who let us stay in her sweet ski house at Hunter Mountain
I was lucky enough to eat up a home cooked "Surf, Turf, & Lamb" meal, as Kaleigh called it, which consisted of: Mediterranean Lamb burgers w/ crumbled feta, Pinot Grigio Shrimp Scampi, Spicy Asian Sweet Chili and Roasted Red Pepper White Corn, Butter Charred Brussel Sprouts, and Garlic and Balsamic marinated strip steak. Did I mention that, like, everyone in CandyMan's family is a chef!!!

Uncle Dale, cousin Brent, and CandyMan cookin' it up

Gary, Aunt Elaine, & Kaeligh <3
Oh, and Aunt Elaine gave me a bunch of hand-me-downs!!!!!!  Score!!!!!!!

Basically a kind of perfect day.

Hooking up to I will wear what I like!!!

Love & Light,
