5 Ways to Wear Stripes! Look #3: Culture Vulture

When I saw this "Mamacita" dress by Nanette Lepore I had to have it.  It was just too crazy fun and colorful.  Unfortunately the only one left was about four sizes too big for me, but that didn't stop The Fashion Tweaker!  Even after my mom helped me tailor it down, it was still a tad big.  So I belted it with a leftover hot pink belt from an Alice + Trixie dress that some doorknob ruined (no, really, I ran into a door knob and it left a greasy mark that never came out).  I love that it's called the "Mamacita" dress, makes me feel all ethnic!

5 Ways to Wear Stripes! Look #2: Naughty Nautical

I couldn't do a week of stripes without a cheesy nautical look, now could I???  Let's just say that if I were ever going to join a branch of the military it would have to be the Navy. I mean, seriously, they know what's up with style.  When I was in high school I would shop at the Navy Surplus store and stock up on heavy wool pea coats and sailor pants.  I do remember getting a little sweaty, though, here in California.  Hmmmmm...maybe that's why I didn't get asked to the prom???

5 Ways to Wear Stripes! Look #1: Dressy Stripes

Yikes! Stripes! So it's official, I have waaaaay too many striped things in my wardrobe, but I just can't help myself!  When I step into a store my body automatically makes a beeline towards anything striped.  So what is it about stripes?  Maybe it's the perfectly even and repetitive pattern that makes me feel like I've got just a teensy bit of control in this chaotic world?  Uh oh, am I revealing too much?

This is one of my most favorite skirts EVER!  And it's not just because I made it myself, but while we're on the subject, let's go ahead and give me a round of applause!!!  I found the striped silk shantung fabric at a yard sale for $5 and with my mom's help, whipped up this fun little number!

Mini-Me Monday: The Cotton Candy & Sparkles Edition!

Last weekend at Lucky FABB I met Trina from Baby Shopaholic, a blog full of pictures of Trina's adorable daughter Peyton in mini versions of designer outfits! Her blog inspired me to do a photo shoot with my very own "mini-me", Vivienne Lee. My friend Alexa from The Swell Life came over to our house and took some super cute pics of the two of us. She even came bearing homemade cotton candy!!! Vivi was smitten!
