Happy Tuesday! This week is a busy one for me! I am off this weekend to Kansas city and Chicago. This last weekend i really cleaned out my closet. I got rid of 14 bags of clothing. I have been really under going a change in my style. I only actually kept a few things that i felt really like me. I kept this cute little sweater and skirt. I thought i would post them because i am celebrating over 100 consecutive posts today! To think this last year, i was merely a baby blog. I have grown so much since this last year. I want to thank everyone and (even the my fans on GOMI) for driving me to do better !

The one thing about fall, that it seems I am more comfortable in clothing. I found these amazing track pants from old navy. The sporty chic is an amazing trend. I decided to dress it up with a statement jacket and some heels. I was super comfortable. The great thing is that the pants fit any type of body. They work if you are plus or not. I just made it a subtle black and white look. Happy Thursday.

(Hint; Take an old coat and seam rip the arms off) I want to thank the lovely people of White Mountain Shoes for sending me a pair of oxfords, I am really obsessing over them for fall, the color is perfect for this weather. I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week and thank you for your love and support!

Hi there! I decided to pull this sweater out. I bought this sweater last year, at Goodwill. I love anything and quirky. The squirrels are just funny and cute. I love that its a two separate piece. I also paired it with this super AMAZING bag. As if you read my MSB recap, you know that i am a yard sale queen. Every summer here in Ankeny Iowa there is a major yard sale at Our Lady Of Immaculate Heart Catholic church. I have a co-worker who attends there and told me about it. Last year i had a phenomenal experience two coach bags purchased one for only 2.50! This year i was so super excited! The first day i went, i ended up spending 15.00. I picked up this fabulous bag! The first thing i hit was the purse table. I was sorting through the bags and found this amazing D&B bag. All the purses were only 2.50! I think its only because Ankeny is a rich town. I picked up a ton of other goodies. I ended up going back next day, because everything was half price. I think that the more i church rummage sale the more i can outfit my self. I ended up at the half price sale finding a bunch of cool pins, and a few other small things. I hope you enjoy.

Since i was in college ( the first time .. now I’m there again). I have been obessed with Glam Rock.
Glam rock (also known as glitter rock) is a style of rock and pop music that developed in the United Kingdom in the early 1970s, which was performed by singers and musicians who wore outrageous clothes, makeup and hairstyles, particularly platform-soled boots and glitter. The flamboyant costumes and visual styles of glam performers were often camp or androgynous, and have been connected with new views of gender roles. (Wikipedia) .
Some of the most memorable artists (and my favorites) are The New York Dolls, Iggy Pop, and David Bowie. I am a huge HUGE fan of The New York Dolls. I tried to recreate a glam rock look. I am obsessed with this leopard jacket. It was a gift from my aunt, it was hers from the 1960’s. I hope you check out Glam Rock Movement!
I have been feeling so VACATION lately. I keep thinking about school starting up. I picked this shirt up over fourth of July. I love Disney, and i have never been to Disney land. This shirt was only .29 cents! I paired it with all my fun and favorite jewelry. The purse is totally a collage of Princess Dianna, its pretty awesome! I hope you enjoy!

For me, the magic of Hawaii comes from the stillness, the sea, the stars- Joanne Harris
I’ve been in a vacation mood lately, thinking about somewhere i haven’t been before, well you can guess? HAWAII! I have been watching to many vintage travel films and TV shows (not to mention that Brady Bunch Episode) . I picked up this beautiful Kimono a week ago, and fell in love with the colors and the “Aloha” written on, so i thought id put together a fun vintage Hawaii look! Enjoy.
