All that Glitters and Such...



Merry Christmas!


Almost. I have been in college, which is why I have not posted the rest of the Hunger Games themed outfits.
Never fear, I shall continue that eventually. 
For now though, I am going to show off what we college people do with our spare time.


We dance!
(And yes, that is a Pokemon mask...)

During this past semester my darlings friends and I have taken every opportunity to shop for and wear all things glitzy and glamorous. 
We threw a ball, attended a bridal shower, randomly sacked thrift stores searching for perfect dresses.. 

And we were in a play. 
That too. 
(Thanks, Modcloth, for a majority of my costume!)

So I thought I would share some pictures from our most magnificent moments. 
We truly do dazzle. ;-)

Some of the ladies at the ball!


Being princesses for a bridal shower. Best. Idea. Ever.


My dress!
A friend of mine at church made it for me! 
Fairly priced, excellent quality. 
If anyone needs a princess dress, I recommend her!


Faith decided she wanted to get in on the action.
Fiona took a fantabulous Modcloth dress



 and turned it into a PHAntabulous dress!

 And of course, our fabulous "temporary" dressing room. 
That's all for now, folks! 
Stay glitterized!

The Fashion Games: Outfit#1- A Hunting We Will Go..

Happy Hunger Games!

While I've yet to see the movie, 
I have read the book(s).
Thus the inspiration for this next CNM series!
It's been awhile since Alice in Fashionland, 
So I thought we were due a few new fiction based outfits.

In the Hunger Games series, Katniss Everdeen 
is a ridiculously poor girl who has been taking care of her mom and sister, Prim, 
since the tragic death of her father. 
In an attempt to protect her sister from certain death,
 she volunteers to take Prim's place in the abhorred Hunger Games.
But before this valiant act of love takes place, 
Katniss goes hunting.


 *Note: These outfits are INSPIRED by The Hunger Games. 
Not meant to be worn in them. 
Therefore, I'm using skirts, and possibly heels.*
;-)



So, this jacket is actually what inspired me to create this outfit series.
I saw it and thought
"That's what Katniss would wear."




The green will help camouflage, I'm sure. 





I love floor length skirts. 
If I was going hunting in a skirt, this would be the one I wore.


Lace-up boots are the bomb. 
(That is not Hunger Games humor, by the way...)
These actually would be fairly useful out in the woods. 
Tie them up tight, and there is no chance of spiders getting in your shoes!
;-)



Mmm, I love this bag!
Cross-body bags are so stylish! 
The flap on this one is adorable. 
If someone ever actually used this as a forage bag, I might cry.








Jacket: ModCloth
Tank: Dillards
Skirt: Anne Klein
Boots: ModCloth
Bag: Ebags



May the odds be ever in your favor!

School Dayz

Georgetown College.
Just down the road from the ever yum-o Fava's diner, 
this little patch of collegiate-ness serves to educate youths from all over the world. 


It comes complete with food that is only good in the morning, 
Dorms that I most definitely will not be staying at, 
and this thing called a G-Card which is actually quite awesome.
As this is where I will most likely spend the next four years of my life 
(It's always a good time....)
I figured I should do a blog post about it.




So Georgetown's mascot is a tiger.
This means our colors are black and orange. 
How lame is that? 
What is not lame, is the fact that the little Eiffel Towers,
 and other such French-y symbols on this dress, 
are in black and orange! 
The lovely Robin's Egg Blue background definitely helps 
tone down the Halloween-ish vibe those colors normally have.
I own this dress, and I must say, it's fantabulous.





Wedge heels and peep toes.
I'm a creature of habit. 
This is a great transitional shoe, 
And what's more transitional than college, right?






So, apparently, kids that go to real school have to tote their books all day.
This inspired some kindhearted soul to invent this lil beauty,
The backpack.
 This chic edition of this fabulous invention is just the thing for a sophisticated college student.


While I'm not a fan of the colors, I do have to show *some* school pride here..
And this cute little tiger bracelet is just the thing!
Subtle, yet styling, this shows just the right amount of school spirit!

Shoes: Payless

Prom Girl Review

Hello!
I am doing something I've never done before-
A store review!
While I have done outfits strictly from one store, this will be the first store I actually write a review for.

The store is called Prom Girl.
As most of you know, I'm homeschooled.
I don't do prom..
However, I do love dresses of any kind.
Excepting cocktail dresses.
(If you like cocktail dresses, they offer those here:)
I was really excited to get the request to review this website.
I have looked at Prom Girl before during one of my many hunts for the perfect dress.
It's a very easy site to use, lots of ways to narrow down your hunt.
There are several dresses in a variety of colors and styles.
Not really any modest ones, though.
Like, not at all.
(Which is why I haven't been able to use them before.)
However, there are some dresses you could probably use the skirt part.
I mean, who doesn't love a satiny, floor length skirt?
The 2012 Prom collection
has some seriously zany colors.
 You gotta love a tie-dye princess dress, right?
Most of them are the high-lo style; therefore useless for the purpose of using the skirt.
The skirt on this dress is pretty awesome.
Along with prom and formal dresses ,
Prom Girl also offers a variety of shoes, jewelry, and underclothing
for whatever big event you're preparing for.
The jewelry is fairly priced, and quite sparkly.
Really that's the best way to describe the shoes as well.
My over all opinion of the website is as follows:
Shoes and accessories, I'd buy.
Dresses... It really just depends on how much altering I'd have to do.
The website itself was wonderful.
I wish some of the modest prom sites were as user friendly as Prom Girl.

To finish off this review, 
I've put together an outfit from Prom Girl
(Of course)
 that's as modest as I could get it.


Like I said,
They have some seriously sparkly jewelry.
Including this fantabulous tiara. 
You can't have a princess dress without a tiara. 
It's just not right.
This one is subtle, yet suitable. 



This dress was the most modest I found on the site. I think.
You could add a shrug to a few others and they might work, 
But this was the only one I saw that actually showed a shrug.
And it's a lovely shrug. 
I really like the flowery detail on the skirt, 
and cream colored dresses are just plain dreamy.



I love broaches.
Next to pendents, I think broaches are my favorite.
I personally have about 14.
This particular broach I'd use right at the neck of the shrug. 
Just to add some sparkle.
Because you can never have enough.
;-)



Ok, you're in a princess dress.
You need some sparkly heels.
These are an awesome gold color. 
(I think gold looks better with the yellow in this case.)
I live the rhinestones on the shoes, as well as the lovely geometric pattern up the strap.

I hope you enjoyed my very first review. 
If you have a fashionable website you would like me to blog about, 
be sure to let me know!

September Blues. (And browns.)

This outfit is inspired by September.


And this picture.







September marks the beginning of  fall.
(Yes, it does.)
Fall marks the beginning of hat season.
Floppy hats are very vogue this year, and while this hat's brim's not as floppy as all get out, 
It's still pretty darn cute.





Much like this vest.
It was love at first sight. 
Seriously, it's sooo cute!
I love the color. It's all blueberry and such.




Basic brown tee.
Good structure. Good color.
Not too heavy, not too light.



Yes, I've used this skirt a lot.
It's so great though!
The dark denim is perfect for fall.



I love the details on these shoes. 
And they're perfect for showing off cute fall nail colors!



Bronze is the perfect metallic for fall.
I love the pockets on this purse.
The little change pouch is so useful! 





Ok, if you haven't noticed, traveling is something I've always dreamed of doing.
And therefore I've always liked anything to do with passports, planes, maps, you name it!
And this necklace has it all!



Vest: Modcloth
Top: Kohl's
Skirt: Chadwicks
Shoes: Payless
Necklace: Forever21


Enjoy your September!

World Traveler (Just stopping by)




I'm a World Traveler..


I want to travel the world...
In this outfit..
:-P


The perfect top for summer traveling, 
This frilly pink top was made for
 Sight-seeing in Italy, 
Shopping in Paris,  
or daydreaming that you are doing such things..
(That last one would be me.. *sigh*)


This skirt is so cute it's ridiculous. 
I love the zig-zags and how light and summer-y it is!

"I'm a little tea cup, cute and sweet.."
Nope. I don't plan on rhyming with that. 
This dainty little charmer is perfectly darling!


I think I have mentioned before 
how much I love light pink ballet flats.
And the twisted ribbon detail is quite lovely. 


Ok, so the main reason I decided to do this post
Was because my sweet parents bought me this purse for my birthday.
And really the only humble way to brag about it was to post it in an outfit.
;-)
Ok,  not really.
Well, I mean.. I really did get the purse, 
But I started this outfit 
(centered around the purse) 
a loooong time ago.

Hope you all enjoyed. 
:-)
