an elusive outfit post

First outfit post in a billion years, I know. I didn't really wear anything too great this summer. It was way too hot and I was way too busy to put any effort into dressing. I prefer Fall and Winter clothing much more.

This skirt just arrived in the mail, my first eBay purchase in a long time. I love the print. I bought three different items of clothing last week and they all have similar "folksy" prints and embroidery. It was completely unintentional. Honestly, I've been feeling a bit burnt out on fashion lately. The internet creates so much sensory overload that it sometimes makes it hard to figure out what I like and don't like. I guess it's good to know that I can always count on my subconscious to steer me along.

American Apparel mustard dress from eBay. Forever 21 skirt from eBay. Ivory cardigan from Old Navy. Faux leather woven belt from H&M. Black tights from Target. Me Too patent t-strap heels from DSW (I later decided that these were too dressy for day and changed into flats).


let the wild rumpus start!

My best friend made these cupcakes, and they're kind of a big deal.

After being featured on several blogs, including Cupcakes Take the Cake and boingboing, her cupcakes made it onto the illustrious Huffington Post last week. Her Moishe- and Max-cakes are featured in a slideshow alongside other movie-themed cupcakes here. I'm so happy that my talented friend is getting the recognition she deserves. And I can vouch for the fact that all her creations taste just as good as they look!
