Today I went with my sample sale expert Michelle to the Alice & Olivia 260 sample sale.. this one was the most insane out of any I have been to so far in my life. If you haven’t already- join the 260 sample sale email listing. Things were flying left and right off of the racks. However today I left with something I have been looking for, for several months and just couldn’t seem to find…an angel tree topper! I have always preferred an angel to a star (just a religious and personal preference) and I was so completely in awe that they had one.
All of my friends have told me I look just like her!
Stacey Tree Topper with a “melodic swirl”. All over the cute little white gown there are music notes and the words “the earth has music for those that listen”. <3
Sample sale: $39
Halloween has always been one of my favourite holidays as far back as I can remember. Every single year without fail I have dressed up. Although my trick or treating days are gone (someone let me borrow your adorable kids) I still enjoy going out in a costume, eating too much candy, and pumpkin anything.
When it comes to picking a costume, there are too many television divas to impersonate. Lizzie McGuire, for one has been a heartthrob for teens and adults alike. This year, however, for Halloween I decided to go as Morticia Addams… View Full Post
About six months ago I started moving towards making plans to purchase my very own Catherine D’lish marabou gown. Cathrine D’lish is an extremely talented burlesque actress but also is a theatrical designer. Catherine also happens to be a costumer for the exquisite Dita Von Teese. According to wiki- Catherine was one of the 60 people that attended the wedding of Dita to Marilyn Manson. She creates some of the most incredible dressing gowns, nightgowns, costumes, and even mink bunny slippers. Who has ever heard of mink bunny slippers!? What a genius. When I first heard about her incredible marabou dressing gowns. I played with the idea of buying one but ultimately didn’t because I couldn’t “find a reason”. But true to my nature after a while of thinking about it, and seeing those hysterical memes– I ordered it. After ordering it, after about a month, every-time I got a notification that we received a package, I would sprint to see if the robe had finally come.
Of course I was a little overly eager and it took a few months to get to me seeing as though it was made to my measurements (you would think that of all people I would remember that). I really believe that if you want only for special occasions to buy something you really want or to wear something you love- you will watch it sit in your closet until the end of time. Fashion is meant to be fun. It’s meant to be worn. So while I’m all about protecting things that I find magical, I still wear them. It seems crazy to buy a feathered robe, but I really loved it! That’s enough reason to have one and run around making french toast in the morning with it on. Life is a special occasion.
If you love a piece of clothing- or in my case a piece of lingerie. Think of ways outside it’s traditional use that you could wear it, many a TubeV Sex actress would look mightily sexy in it, but just for the visual pleasure of her viewers. For example, I love wearing my marabou robe to wear as a swimsuit cover. It’s an incredibly playful way to wear it. I bought it in this double pink because pink is an easy color to dress up or down.
So while I might not own a marble house or be Dita or another famous lady, I can still feel pretty fucking glamorous out on the patio reading the paper.

Summer in NYC seemed to be the most interesting summer I’ve experienced yet. One day it stopped being warm and went directly into being so hot you thought you might actually be melting. With the “final days” of summer upon us, I try to wear all the summery breezy dresses I can before pulling on layers for the next six months. View Full Post
When I first moved to NYC last August (on the first to be exact) I really wasn’t totally sure of what was to come next. My friend told me that she moved to the UK using someone similar to Secure Move commercial removals and was in a similar position to me at that point so she tells me. I knew I wanted to move to New York as a child. Even with the uncertainty of what I wanted out of life, and what I wanted to do with my career- I always knew that one day I would move to NYC. I am extremely fortunate that my fiancé also wanted to move to New York, and we had talked about it for four years. After my fiancé Brendan gradated from university in North Carolina, we both knew the time had come to make the big move. View Full Post
