SWAK Style Blog feature!!

Wow!!!  I'm so honored to be featured on the SWAK style blog.  SWAK is on of my very favorite brands.  I own the Hailey eyelet dress in Mint and the Harlow lace dress in Garnet size 1x.  Both pieces fit perfectly, flatter all the right spots and are super high quality, plus made in the USA!!! I love the versatility of the SWAK pieces and that I can indeed throw them on running out the door but still look amazing!   Check them out!!!

Wishful Wednesday

I love fashion!  I love retro classic styling, beautiful prints, whimsical accessories, bright fun petticoats, and vintage styled shoes. I dream of owning closets full of items to style every outfit I can imagine, that's what Wishful Wednesday's are for!!   Each Wednesday I will showcase the outfit I dream of putting together and what fashion brands and items I'm dying to get my hands on. 

Today I am featuring the Pinup Couture Ella dress in Mary Blair rose and lip print, Lavender.  I'm absolutely in love with this dress.  The cut, the style and the rose print all scream Sleeping Beauty to me.  I would wear it everywhere!!  I'm loving the new Mary Blair line, so whimsical and fun!!

I would pair it with the Malco Modes Jennifer Petticoat in hot pink underneath for contrast.  I love the fullness and feeling of the malco modes petticoats, they're high quality, fun and affordable!

I'm absolutely crushing on practically everything by Erstwilder at the moment!!  A menagerie of kitschy animals, americana, rockabilly fun and all affordable.  I am especially loving the Shake, Rattle n Roll, milkshake brooch.

Roses are my favorite!!  The scent, the timeless beauty and many pleasant childhood memories with my Grandmother.  I love Glitter Paradise, her line is authentically retro looking, hand crafted and magnificent!!  I would wear the Rose earrings and ring in red with this dress because I love the contrast of the red roses with the pink roses, red lips and lavender on the dress!

Remix shoes!!!!  Ohhhh, they're to die for.  Now I'm a clumsy girl so I generally opt for wedges or chunky heels.   I love the Gloria in white, they're lovely, very versatile and wearable for walking outside on a beautiful spring day!

I recently discovered Pop that Cassette and they have won my heart!!  They make the most adorable accessories and each piece is so unique!  I would love to wear this adorable blue glitter sweetie bird piece, it fits my songbird personality to a tee!!

I hope you have enjoyed this first Wishful Wednesday.  Tomorrow I will be reviewing my first Erstwilder brooch and I also have reviews of Bearpaw boots, Lady Vintage dresses and Malco Modes petticoats in the works for you!!  Have a gorgeous day!

Tomorrow !!

Stay tuned for my first Wishful Wednesday.  Where I will showcase my favorites; beautiful dresses, retro styled clothing, kicking hot shoes and cute accessories to get you over that midweek hump!!

Crazy, Epic Friday the 13th

What a day!!  I'm not generally a superstitious person but it was crazy.  Tje day started out normal.  Then I ran out of gas for the first time.    I was driving my husband's car and was not used to it.  Lesson learned, do not push it in an unfamiliar car!  Thank goodness I was not out long, its been brutal weather here in Michigan this winter!

Then it got crazier!  My Dad was on his way to pick up my son when he was detoured off the main road by a house fire.  Taking back roads around here can be very hazardous and he slid into a ditch.  My Dad proceeded to put the car in gear and get out to push.  His door swung shut and locked him outside, no cell, no keys, Tire Spinning!!!  Took us a while to rescue him but thankfully noone was harmed and the car was fine.  My girlfriend also locked herself out!

After all this hilarity I was greeted by an awesome surprise!  I won my very first LadyV London dress!!  I will be recieving the gorgeous Eliza swing dress and cannot wait to wear and review it!

I have so many amazing things planned this year.  Many product reviews, events, photo shoots and more.  I cannot wait to share the fun!!!
