80's Night

There is one theme party I can really dig. And that is 80's night.

Especially when my bangs look like this....
Mainly I like 80's parties because I never have to go to Forever 21 to pick up some "80's essentials" like my friends do. I have the world's best costume box. It is a collection of awesomeness that I have not donated over the years and decided to keep at an easy reach in my closet.

Shoes: Goodwill $5, Jeggings: Macy's $10, Shirt: Goodwill $1.50, Belt: Goodwill $1, Shades: Goodwill $1

This is my friend Megan, You can't see it, but she is wearing a tutu...and she's about 6'4'' in this picture, and you can't see her awesomeness....that doesn't show through polaroids.
I have to get back to 2012 now. :(

Insert Clever Title Here*

Boots: Charming Charlie's $10, Jeggings: Macy's $10, Shirt: Lucky Brand $40, Blazer: Calvin Klein: $40

Do you ever see yourself in a photo, and say....that was a bad choice. Probably should never wear these jeggings with anything that does not cover my booty...well....ever. And really don't wear short boots with them either because that is also not flattering for your lower region.

 I also got to casual friday at work last week and my manager (who is a guy, btw) had on exactly the same shirt! Red, white and blue plaid, we looked like an American Eagle commercial. I got made fun of a lot from my coworkers. I wanted to crawl under my cube and hide, either he was being feminine or my shirt is a bit masculine. I'm going with his was feminine Dammit!!!!

Happy Humpday everyone..

Had another good weekend at the 50% off sale at the Goodwill (yes there was another one, I can only hope this is going to be a permanent thing on Saturdays....and in that case I will have to arise really early so I can get the super good stuff!!!!!) Posts to come :)

To Dye For

A few weeks ago to highlight their opening of a new store in nearby Longmont, CO, Goodwill decided to have 50% off all of their stores! AND I HAD NO IDEA!!! I got to the first Goodwill (my favorite in Highlands Ranch, the richie-rich part of town) and I noticed it was abnormally packed, then I saw the glimmer of hope in the 50% OFF EVERYTHING sign!
Shoes: Target $14, Pants: Goodwill $4, Shirt: Goodwill (Gap) $1.50, Belt: Fossil, Gift

This shirt was my ultimate favorite purchase. I also got a lot more stuff...stay tuned, I will post!

So. I bought a pair of leopard pants. And I love them. Stamped it.

And I stole these earrings from my best friend...shhhhhhhhh :)
And I also tried this "Sock Bun" thing I found on Pinterest. The Perfect Bun
Cute, huh?

Tried it: "Everyday" Cat Eye

I was scanning Pinterest the other day (i know, shocking) and I came across a video entitled, 'how to do an everyday cat eye'. Ok, so I'm not sure why I tried this as I think "everyday cat eye", is an oxymoron. Not sure but  does cat eye and "daytime" need to go together?

Torture Devices Used: Bare Minerals Eye Shadow, LA Colors Liquid Eye Liner in Black (basically the cheapest I could find at Walgreens)
Results: Made for a very uncomfortable outdoor day of eye watering and redness around the corners of my eyes. Not a daytime look! Save it for the Club!

Saturday Morning Goodness

Oh yeah, that's a lovely face mask. Not sure why I decided to share this lovely version of myself!


Shoes: Steve Madden (mom's closet) Leggings: Wal Mart $3, Tunic: Goodwill $4, Necklace: F21 $6

Saturday Morning consisted of: Brett Dennen on Pandora, a really yummy breakfast (actually made by me!) goodwill hunting (nothing spectacular to show for it, but you win some, you lose some, Target (no shoes, no shirts, no shopping ban problem!) and my new favorite item of clothing: this sort of purple colored tunic thingie. It is heaven I tell you, the most comfortable thing you could put on.

I then proceeded to get a little sunshine and volleyball playin in at the park. And Pho 79 with my favorite season is almost over, can't wait to get my boyfriend back! He has been working upwards of 70 hours per week, and I am feeling very neglected!

Saturday night consisted of splitting a bottle of wine with my new girl Hilary, then 2 for 1 late night happy hour with my girl Shannon. Lots of laughs, and an "oh my God, its 2 am?! When did that happen!?" Good day sir, good day.

Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken

Sandals: Old Navy $5, Jeans: Goodwill (Banana Republic) $4, Shirt: Francesa's $20

Necklace: Made by Moi (and missing a bead) Please notice the horse print detail...its pretty rad!

Yes, I realize Netflix has become a tad overpriced and they never have new releases and blah blah blah blah. However: they have all the movies I watched when I was a child, and I can get them in 2 days!!!

I would basically watch any movie that had a horse in it when I was young. This was one of my favs...and did I want to become a horse diving girl???...absolutely! Watching it as an adult, the acting is horrible and the story line is so-so, but I still got enjoyment out of it. Thank you Netflix. You aren't half-bad.
