My fascination with American Apparel nylon tricot leggings never seems to cease. In fact, I own about eight different pairs, with my newest acquisition being a pair in hot pink (yes I'm having a love affair with anything fluorescent pink and ruffled). They're much better than the regular cotton leggings because they add that "futuristic meets non-practical" kind of vibe which I'm totally digging at the moment.
My mom is making carne asada right now and I can practically taste it from upstairs so if you'd excuse me, I'm going to go have dinner now.... then drive to the gym and run it off... because I'm a warrior. Amen.
I'm not going to lie- I get a little too excited when I type something like "velvet collar" or "ruffled peplum" in the search box on Etsy.com and end up discovering all these pretty fabulous shops... it's incredible how talented some of these undiscovered designers are.
Recently I discovered Bonzie, which is an independent Irish fashion label that uses thrifted trinkets and vintage inspired fabric to create beautiful Victorian-esque boleros, shoulder wraps, and scarves. Below are some of my favorite pieces that I'd love to own... if I wasn't sticking to this whole "Let's save money" crap.
Although I felt really overdressed while at Target searching for Sex and the City disc set, I realized that wearing heels to the market or donning a super frilly dress to the post office makes me to feel like I can perform to the best of my capabilities.
Some readers have asked me "Do you ever just want to wear sweats?"... the answer is actually no. As vain as this may sound, I enjoy prancing in platforms around my suburban neighborhood, even if my feet are kind of in pain. It's all for the sake of "feeling good"... and when I feel good, I do good.

As I was browsing through the racks at Kiliwatch, I found this awesomely high-waisted skirt and only purchased because of the little bow accents at the hem... wish I could've taken close-up photos of them!
