10 People I would Love to Dress

1. Kelly Eden
Kelly Eden is, without a doubt, the most beautiful woman that I have ever seen in my entire life (minus all of my gorgeous, amazing friends, of course). Naturally, to dress her would be the ultimate dream come true, and to see her in one of my designs would definitely be the goal of my entire career in fashion.

2. Snow White
No doubt about it, of all the Disney princesses, she's the one with the worst trademark dress. It's even worse in the retouched pictures, where the colors are over-saturated, so the yellow looks bright, bright, bright, and the red looks redder than red. If I could, I would design Ms White a brand new dress, one that doesn't flatten her chest as much. Perhaps a knee-length number in a dark gray, to contrast against her pale skin and the delicate blush of her cheeks. Or a white dress, to highlight her bountiful innocence.

3. My mother of my ex-friend's ex-boyfriend's child.

Alright, so I obviously can't include a picture with this one, because I would be violating this girl's privacy, but I stumbled upon her Facebook page the other day when I was doing some stalking because, well, I was bored. What I found, shocked me. This girl was freaking gorgeous. I mean, absolutely a knock out. She's one of those girls who doesn't wear makeup, and dresses up like a goth to impress all the boys who aren't scared away by that sort of thing. I was a goth chica for about a two and a half years (8th grade, 9th grade, and part of 10th) so I feel as though  I can relate to that sort of thing. What I would love to do is design an outfit for this beautiful woman, and have her put it on and realize that she can be beautiful and a badass at the same time. I'm not saying I want to change her, because we all have our own lifestyles, I just want to be the person who designs that one, single, only dress in her closet, the one she puts on sometimes in secret because it makes her feel like the million bucks that she's worth.

4. Lady Gaga
Alright, I feel almost as though this one is a given. I mean, what fashion designer (aspiring or otherwise) wouldn't want to work with Gaga? You would have almost complete creative freedom! Not to mention, even if you don't agree with her life choices or like her music, you can't deny that Gaga's message of loving each other and accepting each other is a beautiful one. AND, she's a beautiful woman. 

5. Laura Marling
Laura Marling has inspired me so much with her music, I can't even tell you. I feel like designing an outfit for her would be my way of giving back. I'm imagining some sort of free flowing, black chiffon gown, draped in a Grecian fashion, but not one shoulder. I hate one shoulder gowns. I mean seriously.  

6. My best friend, Leah.

Leah is absolutely the world to me, and she means more to me than all of the flowers in the springtime. I know that she and I have very different aesthetics, but I feel as though I could really make her something she would like, because I know her that well. She certainly knows me well enough to pick out the perfect things from her closet for me to wear. Someday, when I am a rich fashion designer, I will repay her by making an exclusive Leah line, different from all of the other clothes that I design, in that my target audience is exclusively her.

7. Mondo Guerra
Damn, it's hard as hell to find good pictures of this man! Mondo was always my favorite to win Project Runway, and I feel like winning AllStars was the closest that will ever come to righting the great wrong that occurred when Gretchen won over him. Don't even get me started on how pissed I was. Seriously. 
Mondo is a very adventurous dresser, and I think that I might have even mentioned something in an earlier post about having him as one of my fashion icons. I don't know. Maybe. I don't remember.
Well, he is someone that I look up to greatly in the world of fashion, both for his designs and his personal style. I would love nothing more than to dive into the world of men's fashion and make him and outfit someday. Hit me up in a few years, Bro. 

8. Ivy Higa
While I despise her personality and all of the clothes she designs, I can't deny that she's a snappy dresser, and I would love to design something for her to wear. Not to mention, I love her face. This is a normal expression for her: determined and driven. I would love to see her carry off one of my designs. 

9. Luna Lovegood

I'm really a fan of pale skinned light blondes, and Miss Lovegood here is no exception. Not to mention, she and I have very similar personalities, except I have never been blessed with the opportunity to actively search for a crumple horned Snorkack. Still, I feel as though I could design her the perfect little number to go with those lovely radish earrings. I would make sure to sew in some sort of protective charm against nargles, too.

10. Florence Welch
And last, but never least, Florence Welch. Despite the fact that I'm a sucker for any redhead, she is adventurous and daring in her fashion choices. I love her music, and I would kill for the chance to make clothes for her.

Style Icon--Bliss Cavendar

Hello Loves! I don't know how many of you have seen the movie Whip It, but it's one of my all time favorites. The main character, Bliss, played by the amazing and beautiful Ellen Page, has been one of the main influences on my own personal style. 
 This might be my favorite outfit that she wears in the entire movie. I want to know where they got the lace up dress, jumper thing they put her into! I would buy one, unless it was outrageously expensive, in which case I would buy a knock off.
Bliss wears a lot of baggy band shirts and flirty fifties skirts, the combination of which works surprisingly well. The boy, Oliver, who is next to her on the car in this image, also has a wonderful sense of fashion, but due to things that I cannot tell you because it would spoil the movie, he does not deserve to be featured here! 
And one final one, just of Bliss looking beautiful in her workout clothes. This is before she officially made the team, hence the Barbie skates, but whatever. I wish my legs looked that good in knee highs.

Hello, my loves. It's been a while since I've posted on here. I thought I'd break the hiatus by showing you my latest additions to my file folders of general inspiration. 
 One of my friends actually has a sheer blouse that she wears a black bra underneath...if only I could be so bold. I mean, I would, but living with my family, I'd never get away with it.
 Gotta love a good Lennon bag. I really want to know where this one came from. If anyone has any idea, leave a comment or message me at
 This is some sort of 80s top that I found on Etsy, and I REALLY want it. Naturally, it was recently purchased, so I can't drool over it anymore.

 I probably would have done this with different hair, a different bag, and without the necklaces. But I love the rest of it!
Crochet lace. Crochet lace would go very well with my skeleton tights. This one is from either Chic Wish or She Inside, I don't really remember which. 

This is a dress from She Inside. And may I say once again, it would look amazing with my skeleton tights.

Feeling lucky, punk?

I'm so excited that hardcore punk is in season this year! I was a little goth girl for my first two years of high school, and she was awakened in my soul again when I saw all of the leather jackets with spikes!
 This is kind of more of a hipster version, and that's kind of how I'm rocking my punk look. My camera is out of commission at the moment, but I'll add a personal style post the next time I'm able to.
 All I want in the world is a pair of combat boots. I just love them so much. I could live a pair of combat boots. As it is, I have a pair of them with heels, but I've practically worn them to pieces.
 Ripped tights. I bloody love ripped tights. Especially with girly, aline skirts.
 Not a believable shoe, but still, I would totally wear it.
 Octopus faux gauges. Me want. Although, I know people who can make a pair of these out of fimo clay just as easily as I could buy a pair.
 I actually own a pair of these tights. After hunting various websites and finding them for 34 dollars and up, I bought a cheap knockoff on Ebay for 9 dollars. Ebay has a lot of various sellers that are only there to sell overflow stock for cheap. Some of them are Korean and Vietnamese manufacturers who make knockoffs of expensive brands, and so their stock is discounted from a price that is cheaper already. I've bought everything from Modcloth to Anthropologie. If you're looking to score a cheap look that still looks chic, that's the first place I would go.
 High fashion alternative girl. Mesh is also really in as a layering piece, just make sure you wear a warm coat! Brr!
And last but not least, Litas. Gotta love the Litas. I wish I lived in a world where I didn't have a budget and wasn't saving jointly for a car and school in New York and I could just spend my entire pizza making salary on fashion. Someday right?

Geek Love

I'm proud to say that I have an inner geek. Although, I must say, I don't really hide it that well. I'm always going off on some tangent about my love of Sherlock, or the assets of both Matt Smith and David Tennant, when it comes to Doctor Who. Speaking of British tv, the new season of Sherlock is being written right now! Filming is set to begin in January!!!
 Fashionably geek.
 I love this picture so much. It's so bad ass.
 Can be found at I actually asked for this for my birthday, but didn't get it. :( (You can't really tell in this picture, but the pink parts of the bag are glittery).
 My friends and I have this really dorky obsession with Disney princesses. This picture made me happy to no  end. Look how hot my girl looks! Although, I would honestly wear any of the outfits in either of these two pictures.

AHHHH....Sherlock! Gotta love Sherlock!

Hipster Sherlock. :)

The lingerie post

Now, when it comes to fashion, I might be a loose cannon, but in lingerie I'm always a lady. ;)
I look for feminine shapes, little skirts sometimes, and lots of lace. I really love vintage lingerie, from the 20s and 30s, but that stuff is really hard to get your hands on, and once you do, it's really only collectible, not usable. When I find a great 20s-inspired lingerie line, I promise you, I will share. Until then, take a peek at my other loves.

 One of my friends always calls me Snow White, because when we met I had short, black hair that I always had a bow in. That personal trend of mine ended, but the nickname stuck, so I was absolutely giddy when I found this.

 This lovely lady is showcasing a large amount of bow love. Gotta have that bow love.

I hope you enjoyed! Feel free to comment, I really welcome them! Until next time!

Fashion la-la-love: Striped dresses

My friends always roll my eyes at me when I start gushing about the newest "optical illusion" dress that I'm currently drooling over. To me, it's an accurate nickname, because stripes create an optical illusion on the body, right? Done right, they can make your breasts look bigger, your waist look smaller, or your body look taller!

Bay Navigator DressOp Art Gallery Dress
Look at what all of these dresses do for the body! I love the way that the designers manipulated the fabric to use the effect of the stripes to their fullest.
Here are two more, and I actually own both of these "optical illusion" dresses:

Reciting Lines DressSudden Celebration Dress
All of the dresses pictured here can be purchased from It's probably the website that I spend most of my time on.
I do realize that the second of these dresses is chevron, but as far as I'm concerned, chevron is merely a variation of stripes.
