Happy Halloween... you Beasts!

Cruella De Vil is in the house this year.

I have to say, I wanted to be Cruella before I found out Iggy was the same thing last year! Either way, I refreshed up on 101 Dalmatians and chose the Glenn Close version to imitate versus the cartoon. Red eye shadow, thick eyeliner, red, bold lipstick for the makeup. Bright red tights match the satin gloves and the in-seam of the coat to make for a 3-power color combo costume. It was so much fun to put together! Props are from amazon and faux dalmatian coat was hand-made by my friend Annie. 

Cruella - so fashionably brilliant; it kills.

- Cigarette holder (amazon)
- Red Gloves (amazon)
- Wig! (amazon)
- Tights
- Dalmatian Print Coat
- Black Ankle Heels (more modern!)

Hope everyone has a fun, spooky night! And shout out to all those Cruella's out there! ;)

Army Green Machine

Relaxed and Ready for Fall

As the leaves change colors and the air turns crisp, it's time for sweater weather. I have so many sweaters I've been longing to wear and am stoked to mix styles with them.

This black sweater purposely has random stretched holes to make a grunge appeal, but don't be fooled - it's still extremely comfortable and warm! (Thrifted from Plato's Closet). The Wet Seal (thrifted) boots you see here go with so many outfits and colors! Since they're brown, they works great as another neutral in this black and green set and make the outfit much more flattering than how it'd look with flats.


On the bottom are.....

....wait for it.....

Official Boy Scouts of America army-green shorts! What are the chances I would land some semi-high-waisted shorts for only $12 bucks that are official Boy Scouts wear? (Purchased from Buffalo Exchange). The color is to die for and the style is both vintage and trendy. Who knows the history behind these shorts...some may say it's weird, but I say it's RAD!

Until next time! - xoxo Linds

Cat's Meow


You know when you discover a treasure like this, it was just meant to be. This is seriously the coolest sweatshirt I've ever found. I love all it's kitty unique-ness and cozy vibes! I lucked out at Crossroads with this tagless, thrifted number, and am excited in a way not to know where it came from. It seems like a Japanese brand, but I am not sure if it's hand-made or not - making it a fashion mystery.

Speaking of mysteries, there was a little surprise on/in the sweatshirt. Equipped with a cat-eared hood with the text "CAT'STORY," I realized the sweatshirt is even more than meets the eye - and tells the story of a cat getting something. That something is hidden in the front pouch! Scroll down to see what happens when you unzip it...

Very pikachu-like hood!

<--- That's right. The cat gets hungry and eats some fishes...making him happy(?!)

These details are just too much!

From cat ears to quirky text to front pouch fish surprises, this is officially the cutest sweatshirt on the planet. Meow!

Hello, Fall.

Fall-ing in love.

Let's bring out those fun layers and fall tones back into our wardrobes! I am so excited to bust out soft oranges, mustard yellows, browns and fun peacoats (peacoat posts to come...) For layering, there are limitless options that allow us to keep wearing skirts, dresses and shorts during the weather-changing Autumn, cool nights. Stay cute and cozy with tights, fun sweaters, and autumn colors!

WORN ON BOTTOM: Navy blue shorts over black nylons

WORN ON TOP: I layered a pink-collared & flower-embroidered blouse underneath a dark short-sleeve mustard sweater from Forever 21. It's both 70's and Fall loveliness all at once.
