The quest

First there was this.

And then I got this (a few weeks ago at the annual 60% off sale at LFStores).

But I think my quest for the ultimate penguin outfit has come to an end.
Obviously I need this (penguin Kigu).

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well you just might find
You get what you need...

I wanted this (Rodarte for Target skeleton dress)... but it was sold out
everywhere seemingly instantaneously.

So instead I got this (Caged by Threadless). Ok ok maybe need is too
strong of a word, but I think it's pretty awesome. ;)

It's War!

Stop motion photography is the bomb (T-Shirt War).


Kind of liking this tortoise shell effect bag from
ASOS (although maybe that "glowing from the
inside" effect doesn't come across quite like this
in real life).

Blue Suede Shoes

Winter, as much as I love you for big cozy sweaters, long wrapping
scarves, and a melange of coats -- my husband just counted today
an 11:2 ratio of my coats to his in our hall closet -- I am ready for
you to depart. Bring on Spring! These blue suede shoes would add
a fun pop of color and whimsy to practically any outfit.

Attack of the Pom Pons!

omg is it weird that I keep seeing pom pons everywhere I look? maybe
they're stalking me? Marc Jacobs fall 2010 (left) calling out to DIYers
everywhere (iridescent pom pons $2.99/60 right).

Dear Jessica

Dear Jessica,

Maybe next time try not to make it so blatant.

female names ending in "a".

Fashion Cousins?

DKNY Postage Stamp mini skirt (although I think I probably
would have named this differently -- see below).

This skirt brought to mind several visually similar options.
First up -- the Hawaiian grass skirt.

And next -- the Pom Pon. Maybe some sort of DIY is in
