Skirt and top - Forever 21
Tights and Belt - Urban Outfitters
Shoes - ModCloth
So, I tried to avoid it. I tried to say, no, you won't see me dressed like a nautical asshole from hell. Unfortunately, I've given in. All i need is an anchor brooch and I'll be good to go!
...like this one. It's the SOS Brooch from ModCloth. With these glasses i feel like the Navy Submarine Hot Radar Girl! I know this is a little more Ralph Lauren meets Vintage than it is Yacht Rock...and I'm happy about that!

I noticed that Chelsey was also wearing a belt over her cardigan today (I actually like her outfit much more than mine) so I decided to write a blog about it. I'm really into this look, it also keeps your dumbass cardigan in place if its over sized or just not the perfect fit for you.
I also hate how a cardigan can make a girl look frumpy or just plain unattractive. This gives a girl some sexy with a cute outfit! I am also hip-less which means that a belt over a cardigan gives me artificial hourglass figure! I think this look would be great for almost anyone, big, tall, skinny, hugeboobs, whatever. It looks good.
Also, Check out these killer boots I'm wearing with this outfit. They were more expensive than my usual purchases. Now you know why I have to bargain shop so much, cause I blow my load on shoes.

Umbrella, Jeans and Shoes - ModCloth
Top - Gabes
Glasses - New and Badass
It's raining today. It doesn't really matter though because I took this picture inside. I like this umbrella, it was pretty cheap and its adorable. The size is so much more tolerable then your average umbrella. I cant stand purse umbrellas because they never warn you that you're still effed when the umbrella gets wet. You aint putting that back in your purse.
The shirt I have on was purchased at Gabriel Brothers. In my attempts to find a size large, I must have chosen a top without a tag. When I got to the checkout the lady asked me how much it was. Knowing very well that it was $7.99, I told her I didn't remember so she rang it up for the same price as the other tank that I got, which was $2.99. While its true that the cashier could have just done a price check, I knew there was a 50/50 chance she'd be too lazy to check. I'm going to hell.
When frugal turns evil and calculated!
As for this outfit, I'm really pleased with floral, lace and stonewash together. It's a pretty nice contrast. Comin' straight out of California Dreams.

First of all, the faux hawk is officially uncool due to it's appearance on the head of George Lopez.
Pardon the terrible cell phone picture.
I got new glasses. For the first time in my life I decided to treat myself and get what I want. I like these a lot, they're Norman Childs. They're pretty much way cooler than you.
That's all for now. Goodnite!

Dress and Shoes - ModCloth
Sunglasses - Big Lots does it again!
This dress makes me feel like a future bea arthur robot warrior from heaven. It's a bit short, but I still love it (as most of you know, short is of no consequence to me). I'm really happy with it!
Like I said, the Strip is a great place to take photos. They'll be a lot of pub photos up on the ModStylist fan page in a week or so, but this one couldn't wait! The green outside this pub is just amazing. Also, that dress was on SIZALE! 29.99! Booyah.
These shoes are also my favorite new shoes. They've got that whole biker nomad feel that I just love right now! William Rast used a lot of this theme in his Fall 2010 line. I'd be a lot happier without oxford style shoe on everything. I'd totally wear all of these looks with my shoes:
I'm done, peace out bitches.
ERRRRVRYTHING I have on is from ModCloth except for the tights. I got those at Rainbow! All the ModCloth clothes are also sale items :)
So I was walking in the strip district last week with some girls that I work with, and its becoming increasingly more obvious that the strip is DA BOMB for taking pictures. It's like an industrial wonderland from heaven.
There are so many great angles, buildings and just straight up run down what have you, that you could take pictures here for weeks and weeks and never run out of locations! There is one downside, skeevy truck drivers and warehouse workers who have never seen sassy girls in their life.
Today we're going to 31st street pub to get some photos in. They should be up soon!

Sunglasses - Big Lots (seriously)
Jacket - Max Azria
Shirt - ModCloth
Belt - Chinese Laundry
So I was wandering through the Big Lots the other day to purchase low priced "Hooters Energy Drinks" and I found these sunglasses for $2.00 dollars. $2.00 EFFING DOLLARS. Considering the economically devastated past of Pittsburgh, I tend to be quite frugal with my fashion.
I find the best things at the most random places. For example: Rainbow, Kings Collection and Family Dollar (YES, Family Dollar). I'm always so pumped when a girl in $300 dollar shoes tells me she loves the 4 dollar belt I have on.
Working for fashion can be a bit tricky, since I'm tempted to buy expensive things constantly. Sometimes I do, and I think you should too. It's always nice to treat yourself. There's just something so much more rewarding about finding something like these glasses that are so badass, but so very inexpensive!
The moral of this story is: Don't be too pretentious to roll up in a big lots. Pull out a step ladder to let you down from your high horse and start bargain shopping!!!
