The Great Boots Unveiling

After yesterday’s post about ankle boots, I decided to take myself to DSW and see if there were any of the boots in store that I found online. I was hoping I could try on some of them and see if they worked. The good news is I found 3 of them in the store….

My Thursday Shopping Cart – Ankle Boots

So I know it’s not Monday, but I totes have a shopping cart going on right now. See, I’ve accepted that I may never find the perfect tall boot. Between my wide-ish calves and skinny ankles, finding tall boots is quite the challenge. I’ve pretty much given up, but never fear! My shoe guy introduced…

Interview Attire

So, I’ve been at my job for about seven months. I do some social media and a ton of community management and I love it. Well, on Friday I was laid off. Nothing bad – strictly a money/restructuring thing. I am sad to be leaving my friends, but I’m parting on great terms. Onward and…

Why Yes, I Do Wear Clothes

It’s been a while friends! I have to admit – having a new home has taken up all my time (and disposable income!) so doing My Monday Shopping Cart was just making me bummed about all the things I couldn’t get. However, I have been getting dressed everyday, and I have just a few pics…

Are You a Bully?

This week, a video has been making the rounds on the interwebz. A plus size news anchor received a very rude email telling her ot get out of the public eye until she managed her weight and health. Her response has been a huge source of inspiration: I have seen so many posts praising Jennifer’s…

My Monday Shopping Cart – Boots!

If you’ve read my blog for a while (and if you have, I thank you!!) you now that ever year I promise myself I will get fall/winter boots. Somehow, many years have passed and I still have no boots. This year, I am buckling down (hehe boot humor) and seriously looking for boots. Here’s what…

Shopping for Funsies

I really want to get back to talking about the things that make me happy….. and that means clothes!! I haven’t been doing much shopping lately (moving is expensive yo!) but I did get a few things at Old Navy this past week. They were each almost 50% off and I had a 20% off…

Being the Blogger I Am

It’s been a loooong few weeks for me. I moved into my own place (YAY!!!), took on more responsbility at work (YAY!!) and have continued my search for a new doctor. As my depression and anxiety reaches new heights (I like to think of it as evolving into a medication-resistant strain like a new flu…

Saturday Night Recap – Austin Fashion Week

Saturday was the first night I attended Austin Fashion Week events (for a great recap of Friday night kick off, check out Keep Austin Stylish) and I chose two events close to my heart. First I headed over to the Fabricker to see my dear friend Lauren’s runway show. This was her first solo showing,…

It’s Time for Austin Fashion Week!

Every year around this time in Austin, we brave the heat and get dressed up and roam the streets for Austin Fashion Week.  I’ve always been an active participant, attending many shows and nursing many hangovers. This year however, real life is intruding on my fashion fantasy. I’ve been forced to be much choosier and…
