    The Elephant in the Room

    how to style colorful tights This weekend is Nehemiah’s and my sixth wedding anniversary! Since it has been a secret, as I planned where we are going and he has no idea, I have to admit I haven’t really given much thought to a detailed itinerary of what we will do during this weekend. I have a vague overview of the points I’d like to hit while we’re gone, but I haven’t planned outfits, nor figured out a day-by-day plan to see everything I want to see while we are there.

    breastfeeding friendly retro dress I am so excited to finally share these photos and this lovely woodland fairy-esque breastfeeding friendly dress from Lindy Bop! About a month ago, Lindy Bop got in touch with me to collaborate on a new venture they’ve launched: the Lindy Bop blog!

    Snow White, Vampyre || feat Lady V London

    Happy Halloween!!! For my last little twisted fairytale I knew immediately that I wanted to do some sort of Vampire-related look. And who is paler than all the rest but Snow White? I’ve always thought that Snow White would make a great vampire with her lips red as blood and her skin pale as snow, not to mention the hair dark as night, but I never quite knew how I wanted to do it until this gorgeous lace-print dress from Lady V London came into my life and right then, I knew! Nothing is more classic and creepy than red, black, and white together! Of course, once I was done…
