If My Blog Was An Outfit

April 10th, 2014 | Posted in Beauty, Fashion, Geekery by Meli

I love meeting new geeky lady friends via the Twitterverse. Thanks to Her Universe and their fabulous #flauntyourworld hashtag, Megan and I started our bloggy-ship? Blogship? Either way! She’s an adorable geek girl hailing from Comic Con’s stomping grounds, San Diego, and she has a great blog over at The Nerdy Girlie. She also loves tea, the UK and Doctor Who. Hello new bestie! While looking through her site, I loved the If My Blog Was An Outfit post, and had to do my own!


Necklace | Tank | Clutch | Lipstick | Nail Polish | Flats | Skirt

I love wearing clothes that reference my fandoms, but I like them to be a little discrete and still fashionable (OK, so this tank isn’t super discrete…). I also love me some bright clothing, neon preferably. Most of the time, I am in sweet little skirts, preferably paired with flats. If they are glittered: perfection.

I also love me some whimsy, so a unicorn clutch would round out this outfit perfectly. I equally stay faithful to my rock roots, so I like to add a little edge with fun and spikey accessories. My nail polish obsession only continues to grow – glitter-filled Deborah Lippmann shades are my favorite because they are just so happy and pretty, while M.A.C. is always my go-to for lipstick. Candy Yum Yum is my new favorite, especially for the upcoming Miami summer.

Finally, my iPad! It’s always with me either for work or for play – it’s where I read all my books. I spend many a late night cuddled in bed with the hubs and the newest YA series. Right now? Vampire Academy! In a nut shell: glitter, geekdom, neons, unicorns, and nail polish. Yep, pretty Melificent.

Jumpsuits

July 24th, 2013 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

I know not everyone is a fan, but I can’t get enough of jumpsuits. Sure, you have to physically take everything off when you need to use the restroom, but there is always a price to pay when looking fabulous, am I right? I personally would have a closet full of them, especially now that such fun designs are being seen in comparison to all the boring neutrals we used to find. Just remember: not all jumpsuits are created equal. Make sure to search for ones that flatter your body type by hugging you in all the right places. Some tend to just sag, which is one adjective you never want thrown around when describing you and/or your look!

1. ASOS floral jumpsuit // 2. Color gradient jumpsuit // 3. Garden print jumpsuit // 4. Cutout jumpsuit

Do you rock jumpsuits?

Valentines Wish List

February 4th, 2013 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

I don’t need much more reason to dress girly, so Valentine’s Day just puts me in overdrive. Heart patterns and sweet shades all around cause me to lose a little control. As for the holiday itself? I could do without. I’ve never really been a fan whether I was single or crazy in love. But that doesn’t mean I can’t dress the part! Plus, I heard the hubs is taking me to Michy’s this year. I can handle that. ;)

Here are some of my favorite v-day inspirations;

1. Anika Burke Heart Back Dress; 2. Anika Burke Heart Front Dress; 3. Heart Ring; 4. Ban.do mini hearts; 5. Mini glitter notebook

 

1. Smitten Sweater; 2. Glitter heart clutch; 3. je t’aime necklace; 4. Scalloped wedges; 5. Heart Sleeved Sweater; 6. Cross My Heart bobbi pin

Paint Pastel Princess

January 29th, 2013 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

If anyone gets the reference to the above title, I will love you forever.

I am loving that although it is Winter in most parts of the country, pretty Spring pastels have taken over the world of fashion. Dainty mint, peach, and lavenders are sprinkling all my favorite online boutiques and I am loving it. I imagine wearing these hues while eating brunch with a water view and sipping on a mimosa. Pretty specific, huh? I miss the outside world, OK?

Here are some of my favorites that I’ve stumbled on recently;

1. Christian Siriano heels; 2. Brighton tank; 3. Colorblock shift dress; 4. Unicorn necklace; 5. Mint crossbody; 6. Ombre sweater

Pardon me, Ban.do.

November 6th, 2012 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

So the always festive Ban.do has released it’s new holiday collection and I am head over heels for basically every single piece. I die. I mean, how can you go wrong with their tagline for the collection: Pardon me, I’m sparkly. Funny thing is, I’m pretty sure I could make this statement all throughout the year, not just during the holidays. This time of year just gives me an extra excuse (as if I needed one) to bring out the bling in a big way.

Here are some of my favorites, but make sure to check out the full collection here;

1; flurry pouf || 2; sequin scarf || 3; glitter bow shoe clips || 4; contrast headband || 5; gliterrati twist scarf || 6; drinking the stars comb

 

Which one is your favorite?
