Teapots, Fishtails and Lace, Oh My!

Outfit Details: Top: Gift // Pants: UrbanOG // Shoes: Target // Jacket: BB Dakota // Necklace: Peggy Li // Pin: Modcloth // Lipstick: Nars in Yu 
And it's cold again. For a few days we had some glorious weather that was really teasing us about springtime. It was almost 45 degrees last week and now we have a wind chill advisory for wind chills of -15 to -30! It's crazy. I mean I always knew Buffalo had what we like to call bi-polar weather (aka all four season in the matter of two weeks) but this insane! But despite the weather I've been slowly coming out of my "outfit rut" and making my way back into a "I want to get dressed" mood. This winter was especially hard on that and it was royally brutal on my style. 

This outfit features a few of my favorite things, teapots, fishtail braids (that my friend did) and lace. The teapot pin was actually only purchased because I refused to pay shipping at Modcloth but I fell in love with it immediatley when I saw it. It always reminds me of Mrs. Potts from Beauty and The Beast and since that's my favorite Disney Princess movie I smile every time I wear it!

Wednesdays are one of my favorite days of the week (next to Tuesdays and Fridays) but they can also be a pain in the butt. Today it's a bit of both. On the great side I got bought tickets to see Beauty and the Beast the musical when it ventures to Buffalo, Arrow is new tonight and it's only 11 days until a new episode of Once Upon a Time!! Today I thought I'd share a fun, good day Wednesday outfit that is welcoming spring. Because it's taking f-o-r-e-v-e-r to arrive.

The Day of Love.


"True love is felonious. You take someone’s breath away. You rob them of the ability to utter a single word. You steal a heart. "*

I believe in love, I believe in true love. I believe that if given the chance love can conquer all. That with enough love and devotion all our problems could slip away, even if just for a moment. I believe that while it is perfectly acceptable to love a thing, utter devotion should belong to another being. I believe that when you give your heart away you give somebody a piece of your soul. I believe that "I love you" are three of the most powerful, sacred words. I believe that while love has the ability to rip everything out from under your feet, you should feel safe. I believe that your love is the most valuable gift that you could ever give or receive. I believe in love, I believe in true love. 

[For some of my favorite couples view yesterday's post!!]

My Favorite Couples

Valentines Day is tomorrow and I have to admit it's not my favorite holiday but it does give me an excuse to peruse the Disney classics, rom-coms and every sappy love story ever invented. And I have. I've watched about 30 movies (and TV shows) where love was a main plot point in the last month. So I thought I'd share some of my favorite true love couples (and some favorite lines they've uttered).

Belle and The Beast [Beauty and The BeastBeast: You.. you came back. Belle: Of course I came back. I couldn't let them.. oh, this is all my fault if only I'd gotten here sooner. Beast: Maybe... it's better - it's better this way. Belle: Don't talk like that. You'll be all right. We're together now. Everything's going to be fine, you'll see. Beast: At-at least... I got to see you... one last time.
Holly Golightly and "Fred" [Breakfast at Tiffany'sPaul Varjak: I love you. Holly Golightly: So what. Paul Varjak: So what? So plenty! I love you, you belong to me! Holly Golightly: [tearfully] No. People don't belong to people. Paul Varjak: Of course they do! Holly Golightly: I'll never let ANYBODY put me in a cage. Paul Varjak: I don't want to put you in a cage, I want to love you!
Rory Gilmore and Logan Huntzberger [Gilmore Girls"It’ll be fun, it’ll be a thrill; something stupid, something bad for you, just something different. Isn’t this the point of being young? It’s your choice, Ace.People can live a hundred years without really living for a minute. You climb up here with me, it’s one less minute you haven’t lived."
Ladon Carter and Jamie Sullivan [A Walk to RememberJamie: You know what I figured out today? Landon: What? Jamie: Maybe God has a bigger plan for me than I had for myself. Like this journey never ends. Like you were sent to me because I'm sick. To help me through all this. You're my angel.
Johnny Castle and "Baby" [Dirty Dancing"Nobody puts Baby in a corner." and "Me? I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw, I'm scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you."
Belle and Rumplestiltskin [Once Upon a Time] Belle:You, uh... you still have it. My chipped cup.  Mr. Gold: There are many, many things in this shop. But this... this is the only thing I truly cherish. And Mr. Gold: You must leave, because despite what you hope... I'm still a monster.  Belle: Don't you see? That's exactly the reason I have to stay. 
Noah and Allie [The Notebook] Allie: Stay with you? What for? Look at us, we're already fightin'
Noah: Well that's what we do, we fight... You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you're back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing. Allie: So what? Noah: So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day. Will you do something for me, please? Just picture your life for me? 30 years from now, 40 years from now? What's it look like? If it's with him, go. Go! I lost you once, I think I can do it again. If I thought that's what you really wanted. But don't you take the easy way out.

Who is your favorite fictional couple (I excluded my favorite couples from books because we'd be here all day if I didn't)? And who is your favorite in the list above? P.S. if you're look to rent one of these rom-coms (or watch OUaT) click their names!

Blue Valentine Styling

Blue Dress Styling
What I'd Wear: Dress: Modcloth, Shoes: J. Crew, Sunglasses: Crap Eyewear , Clutch: Yesstyle & Lipstick: Nars

This outfit is heavily inspired by Friday's Hallmark holiday. I love reds and pinks but Kendi and Mara inspired me to make a "Blue Valentine" outfit and I have to say that I love it! And if you're like me and live in an incredibly chilly area you can always throw a cardigan over what you're wearing!

Spring Crushing

Lately I've been crushing on spring hard.This winter has been brutal and I'm just itching to say "buh-bye" to all the freezing cold temperatures, icky snow (snow is only OK in December) and the boring outfits. Let me tell ya, you can only wear a sweater and pants so many ways. And don't even get me started on shoes!! But besides all the gross winter that's happening outside I'm stuck on spring. So stuck that I've bought quite a few things just for spring.
What I Bought:Mint Skirt: Modcloth, Black Patterned Skirt: Modcloth, Scarf: Modcloth, Necklace (Elephants): Forever 21, Necklace (Apple): Modcloth, Pin: Modcloth

Here are a few pieces that I've recently just bought from Modcloth (and a lone F21 piece) that are getting me excited for spring. What are you looking forward to wearing this spring?

Girly With a Side of Edgy


Lately I've been thinking about doing some changes to step away from such a girly demeanor. I love being girly don't get me wrong but I also like to stretch to new limits. I've been doing it a lot lately with my online shopping (I ordered this skirt and this dress) but I wanted to do something now. This outfit is still girly with it's adorable little skirt and light color but the leather band and black booties make it somewhat edgier, to me at least.
I think all this want for some change comes from the changing of the seasons that's coming up. Winter is such a dead time, it's bitterly cold out, there are very few plants outside and after December snow is just a nuisance. Spring on the other hand is the start of new life, warming of the temperatures, melting of the snow and I like spring/summer. I love everything it brings (except bees I hate those things when they're buzzing in my face).

Shoes: UrbanOG
Necklace: Target
