Whole Lotta Red

Hello there! So, we didn't end up going to New Hope yesterday because of the rain. We got pizza for dinner instead, and then went to Applebee's. I was using my ice cream cone wristlet last night, when Bob and I went to Applebee's and Bottle King. A few people complimented me on it, and one cashier at Bottle King even asked to take a picture to show his friend, ha!
Today is another crappy day outside. It's dark and dreary, and supposed to rain more. I think Bob and I are just staying in today. I'm going to work out, read, watch "The Sopranos" and probably "Wolf of Wall Street." And Bob is making a turkey dinner, with stuffing, sweet potatos, and peas. I love all four of those items!
Next Saturday I'm going shopping in Pennsylvania with my mom and aunt at shops that sell Easter decorations, and we are going to an antique center. My mom loves shopping for holiday decorations, and she has SO many. I went with her back in October too, to look for Halloween and Christmas decorations. Then on Sunday my mom and I are going to the bridal store to drop off my dress for alterations. The bridal store is also in Pennsylvania.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my only Hell Bunny dress. Hell Bunny makes such cute, retro style clothing. Modcloth has a good selection of their items. I got this dress from Amazon. I love the dress paired with my Luxulite cherry necklace and brooch. They all go so well together.

Birds & Flowers

Hello there! Well, Bob and I were supposed to got New Hope, PA today, but it's supposed to rain all day and night. (And tomorrow.) I keep checking the hourly forecast, but unfortunatly it seems we won't be able to go. I'm disappointed. We haven't been there since July. Now that it's spring we can start going on little day trips around the area, and get to do things that would have been too cold to do in the winter. But, now there's always a chance it could rain and ruin the plans. 
If we don't get to go today, I'm not sure what we'll do instead. I'm going to clean the apartment, do laundry, read, and probably run to Target. Maybe we'll go out to dinner around here. "Wolf of Wall Street" is availabe On Demand now, so I think Bob and I will watch it sometime this weekend. We both have been wanting to see it, but Bob even more so. Bob's really into the stock market.
In the pictures below I'm wearing a Modcloth dress. I got this one back in September, and I love it so much. The brand is Retrolicious. I think the print is so pretty. I have a few Folter and Retrolicious brand items I got from Modcloth. (They are made by the same company.) They use such unique, fun fabrics for their dresses and skirts! This dress is a little thicker than most of my dresses, so I wear it sometimes in the winter, too.

Springtime in Paris

Hello there! I don't have too much going on tonight, or the rest of the work week. I went to the library after work, and tonight I'm just going to relax with Bob- watch "The Sopranos" and read. I'm meeting a friend for lunch tomorrow at Panera. I was just at Panera on Saturday night, but I don't mind going there again so soon! I can't wait to go to New Hope on Saturday with Bob! It's supposed to rain a bit, I really hope it won't be for long. And it's supposed to be in the high 50s!
In the pictures below I'm wearing another one of my Pin Up Girl Clothing Jenny skirts. I have three of them. I love how thick they are. I can't wait to try them out with my petticoat that I'll be getting in the mail very soon! I think it's going to pair wonderfully with these skirts. This skirt is my favourite of the three. It has a pattern on it of scenes in Paris. This outfit feels very spring-like to me. I paired the skirt with a lot of pastel accessories. This orange cropped cardigan doesn't match with too much in my wardrobe, but it definitely pairs perfectly with this outfit! When I bought if off of eBay, the colour on my computer screen was a darker orange, and I thought I'd be able to pair it with a lot of skirts and dresses.

Shades Of Blue

Hello there! Yesterday was a good day. I got done everything I wanted to get done, and I also hung out with my parents, and while I was there my aunt came over for a little while. And then I met up with a friend at night, for a drink. Today Bob and I are staying in. I may run out to Target to get one of his birthday presents though. But, otherwise just relaxing, reading, watching episodes of "The Sopranos" (we just started Season 1 last week.) and working out. 
Bob is so hard to shop for! I ask him for ideas for birthdays and Christmas, but it's usually hard for him to come up with things he wants. He usually says he doesn't need or want anything. So far he just told me a DVD TV series he wants. I'm waiting on some book titles he said he'll gve me, as well. 
Next Saturday Bob and I are going to New Hope, PA. I love going there, we go two or three times a year usually. It's about an hour from where we live. It's a really pretty town, with old buildings, and streams and woods in it. There's a lot of little stores and restaurants, that are very easy to walk to. It's a very artistic town as well; there are art gallerys, and a few of the stores sell handmade jewelry, etc.
In the pictures below I'm wearing one of my Pin Up Girl Clothing Jenny skirts. They are heavy circle skirts, with thick material. I can't wait until the petticoat I ordered arrives! I hope it works well with my Jenny skirts and dresses. In these pictures I'm also wearing my latest pair of B.A.I.T. Footwear Idas. This aqua pair matches my outfit perfectly. I can never have enough Idas! They are so comfy, and go so well with so many of my outfits. It was quite windy when these pictures were taken! That's why my eyes are squinty.

Tutti Frutti!

Hello there! Happy Saturday! :) It's officially spring now, and that makes me very happy. Today's going to be a high of 59 degrees, love that. I can't wait until it's consistently warm. We keep going back and forth with temperatures. My idea of the perfect temperature is right around 75 degrees.
My wedding is in three months!! Wow, it's crazy that's is so close now. I know time is really going to fly from here on out. And Bob and I (and some friends) are going to The Sands for his birthday in just under a month. I can't wait to get away, if only for a night ha. I had another nightmare about the wedding, on Thursday night. I hate having them! I haven't had too many yet, but I'm sure I'll be having more between now and then.
Today I'm doing my usual Saturday tasks of cleaning the apartment, lots of laundry, and working out. Then in the early afternoon I'm heading up to my parent's house to visit them and my animals! And later on at night I'm meeting a friend at a bar in the town I live in. So, it's going to be a busier Saturday than usual, but that's good. I don't mind relaxing all day Sundays. But, on Saturdays I like to at least go out for a little bit, and see friends and/or family.
In the pictures below I'm wearing a dress I received from Modcloth this week! And I am obsessed with it! After it hit the website a week before, it took me only one day to buy it ha. I just couldn't hold out. It's just so perfect for me, so colourful, and with a super cute print. It fits well, too. The dress has a silky feel to the material, and there's a lining in it. It's very comfortable and light. It came with the green belt. And it pairs oh, so perfectly with my fruit brooch! Although you can barely notice the brooch since it blends in with the dress, ha. Of course I had to top off the outfit with my fruit flats! Fruit from head to toe, ha.

A Coral Dress


Hello there! So glad that this work day is over with, and I can relax. I ran to the library on my way home, and got a book out, and some DVDs and magazines. I especially love taking "People" magazine out of the library! It's so nice to not have to pay for it, or for books. I almost never buy books. I get some for Christmas, from the library a lot, and my grandmother lends them to me as well.
In the pictures below I'm wearing a Pin Up Girl Clothing Harley dress. The colour they call it on the website is peach, but I find it to be more of a coral. Which is what I was hoping it would look like in person! I just love coral so much, and it's obviously a bright shade than peach is. And I'm clearly all about wearing bright colours/patterns! This dress JUST fits my chest. They didn't have the next size up available, so I took a chance and got this one. And I was so happy it zipped all the way up! Although, it is a bit tough to zipper it towards the top ha. Don't mind the disgusting dirty looking snow in the pictures! I'm so glad it's almost all melted away. How nice to see grass! 
I really need to get a petticoat! I have my eye on a Hell Bunny one on the Modcloth website. And I've heard good things about it from some ladies. I really should order it very soon. I think a petticoat would look great with this dress. I've never tried one in my life.

Ice Cream Sunday/Sundae

Hello there! Another lazy Sunday has rolled around again. Except that I've been waking up pretty early on the weekends! Luckily, after I woke up the first time this morning, I was able to fall back asleep for another hour. I'm just going to work out, read, run a couple errands, and relax today. Bob's making penne vodka tonight, I can't wait! It's one of my favourite dishes that he makes, and we haven't had in awhile.
I've sold three items on eBay so far, which makes me happy! I currently have three other items up for sale, and hopefully at least one of them sells. The money I make from selling just goes back into my clothing/shoes/jewelry/purses purchases ha.
In the pictures below I'm wearing a dress my mom made me last summer! I'm very lucky she is an excellent seamstress, and is more than willing to make me dresses. She's made me four dresses since last July. It's so much cheaper to have her make them for me, than to buy them! I love this colour combo of coral and yellow in the dress. I paired it with my coral fruit flats, and yellow cropped cardigan, to bring out the colour combo even more. I had to pair my ice cream brooch with this outfit, of course! Lately I've been quite obsessed with brooches. I got my first two for this past Christmas, and ever since I've been wanting more, and getting more!
