{Hunger Games Week}: Jennifer Lawrence’s Mockingjay Style

March 19th, 2012 | Posted in Fashion, Movies by Meli

Yes, I know I am kind of behind on all the Hunger Games premiere fashion, but I just had to touch on the fact that I love that Jennifer Lawrence has been subtly paying tribute to her character, Katniss, in her gown choices. Would you not agree? Her two separate gold frocks made me immediately think of the now infamous mockingjay pin she wears in the games, her back-baring Tom Ford reminded me of the flame suits and/or the moment Katniss embraces being the mockingjay and finally, the absolutely stunning Marchesa worn in Berlin just screamed girl on fire.

More importantly, which was your favorite?
I personally think Jennifer rocked it out in every look, but my personal favorite was her glimmery gold Prabal Gurung complete with sexy cut outs and dramatic train. When I saw her, I literally gasped. Girl knows how to work a red carpet!

*the rest of this week will be all Hunger Games, all the time leading up to the mega-watt premiere this weekend!

Do You Want My Clothes?

February 22nd, 2012 | Posted in Fashion, Personal by Meli

My closet desperately needed a Spring, Winter, Fall, and Summer cleaning so I went ahead and did so yesterday. While I was making my pile, I realized a lot of the victims had never even been worn once! I didn’t think it was right to just toss them aside without offering them a new home first where they could at least see the light of day. So I decided to offer them to all of you, lovely readers! If no one is interested, then up on Ebay they will go, but you all get first dibs!

If you want to snag a piece, leave me a comment saying so and it will be yours. First come, first serve! Just as an aside, these all come from a smoke-free home and at max, have been worn once.

Happy shopping!

This Marc Jacobs dress is actually a size 2, totally my error. :)

What I Wore: Date Nite

September 8th, 2011 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

Since I am always looking for a good deal, I was overjoyed when the lovely Ms. Audrey of Conversation Pieces filled me in on her new project, Shop Speedy Girl. The idea behind the new site is that it can be considered kind of like a drive-thru fashion ATM. Every 24 hours, shoppers are offered 2 items at a special price within a 24hr period.  The merchandise is made up of current season styles from comparable mod and vintage fashion retailers, but at Shop Speedy Girl, customers can expect to pay up to 50% less. Yep, you heard right! How can you say no? I know I couldn’t – especially when I saw this adorable little cupcake-like dress. I thought it was absolutely perfect for a date night in the always humid South Florida. Its lightweight and breezy nature paired with the girly ruffles in pastel hues sealed the deal. Best part? The hubs’ reaction: “oh wow, do you look cute or what?

Find your perfectly priced prize on Shop Speedy Girl today!
Feel free to thank me later ;)

Squeeworthy: Dorothy Perkins

August 30th, 2011 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

As if I need another reason to spend copious amounts of money shopping while I’m in London, I stumble upon this lovely site thanks to my evil mistress, Pinterest. Dorothy Perkins: land of perfect Melificent dresses. Seriously, I don’t know which beautifully classic, elegant, Audrey Hepburn inspired dress I want more. As if the website wasn’t tempting enough, I just google map-ed the nearest location to our flat while we are on vacation, and one lies merely a 5 minute walk away. I am so screwed.

SDCC Show & Tell

outfits

Now that I’ve rounded up my birthday girl outfits for this month’s Comic-Con, I decided I’d play a little show and tell with you all! That and people have requested to see them and who am I to deny you lovely people? ;) Now, I realize that it looks like I have some sort of strange antlers growing out of my head, but I assure you it belongs to my cardboard buck.

I’d really appreciate some help from you all with this one. I’m pretty sure this is the winner for my official birthday party (note amazing princess tiara & shoulder details), but I’m concerned that it is a little on the short side, especially since the back is exposed (not pictured). So my question to you all is, should I brave the streets of the Gaslamp District with the itty bitty number or should I pair it with my favorite jean leggings? Advice needed!

I absolutely love this dress! I found it at Loehmann’s this week and haven’t stopped obsessing over it since! It’s the runner up for my birthday dress if I am feeling a little more demure and less sex kitten. It’s so perfectly form fitting without being too suggestive and is made of the most delicious sweatshirt material.

So there you have it! My outfits for our nights on the town in San Diego! Hopefully I’ll look a little cuter the next time I wear them since I’ll actually make an effort to do my hair, accessorize and slap some makeup on ;)
