Oh, how I love me some dog prints.  When this J Crew Factory sweater came on the scene I knew I needed it.  Plus, ever the summer girl at heart, I have this awful habit of never buying sweaters because there's always some dress out there that I like better.  Luckily J Crew Factory has been on point with their sweater game, so I'm finally making "appropriate" winter investments.

Erstwilder, likely my favorite brooch company, makes tons of Dachshunds brooches.  I have yet to own one though.  I do however have this fabulous Whippet brooch, and I decided he wanted to hang with his Dachshund friends on this occasion.  That said, whenever I do finally break down and get one of Erstwilder's amazing Dachshund brooches, I'll be wearing them a ton with this sweater!

I got this skirt on super sale from ModCloth about two years ago.  The color itself is discontinued, but there are still several color ways that ModCloth sells in this style.  Hell, one of my earliest blog posts was about these skirts (I own a few different colors) and you can check that out here.  As you probably already know, I am a bit of a high heel girl.  I can function in them pretty well, but when it gets wet and frozen outside I err on the side of caution.  So over the summer I found these Michael Kors moccasins at a Marshall's and decided to be "practical" (what?!) and purchase them.  I like them because they're gold so they're still super fun, and they have proven to be a great alternative to heels when I'm out and about over the past few weeks as the weather has turned snowy and such.  I almost wore heels to this photoshoot, but instead decided to showcase the lower maintenance winter-y side of me, haha.  

I thought I would share some silly videos today instead of talking about the positive end of things in life.  Laughter is always the best medicine and can be uplifting in general, right??  Plus it goes along with this theme as they're dog videos!! My dogs have no idea how to use a dog door at my friend's house, and it's kind of funny.  They're pretty smart dogs, but they're about 10 years old and I guess it's true that you can't teach an old dog new tricks!

I love me some rap music.  And thank goodness for Snoop Dogg using so many dog based titles in his songs, making naming this song easy!  The idea of naming this post, "Woof!" after one of his songs  cracked me up, so I had to use it.  I saw him live 3 years ago (with Bone Thugs n Harmony AND Ice Cube...!!!) and to say that show was a lot of fun is an understatement!

I've recently added two pages to this blog, one that catalogues posts named after songs and another that catalogues all of the concert stories.  Click the links on to see for yourself!  Happy Friday!

  8. Obsessed with your purse!!! Your dogs are super cute, animals remind me of kids in a lot of ways with their silliness, innocence and oblivion to what they are saying and doing at times!

  9. How adorable is this dog print?! The whippet broch is super cute too. I love the color of this skirt too and what a versatile piece it is. I was on this kick where I was only buying gold flats not too long ago lol. These definitely reminded me of that. Im still very partial to gold!

  28. LOL I'm exactly the same with my purchases... If I see something I like I often will talk myself out of it because I know there's a dress I'd rather buy instead! I'm glad you were able to talk yourself into getting this sweater! I love the all over dogs on it. I have a dog sweater my mom gave me a few years ago. You make me want to get it out and be sweater twins(ish) with you! :D

Hey, all!  I'm a big baseball fan and my mom is from Chicago so I grew up hearing about the Cubs history and am pretty amped to be here at game 7!  Anyone else into this year's World Series or have a fan favorite they're rooting for?
Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick post showing my fandom!  I decided to be silly and wear my Cubs tee with a skirt (same as my zombie skirt) from Retrolicious via ModCloth with bears all over them...get it?  Hehe. I'm not into totally normal sports attire, as I exhibited HERE. Stay safe tonight if you're out watching tonight!

Ocean Front Members Only

Is this a style post only I could bring you or what?  Not only did I mix prints (three times, as the Forever 21 shirt is gingham, the ModCloth briefcase is dinosaur printed, and my true vintage skirt is an ocean front border print!) but I'm mixing vintage with modern fashion.  It seems that many vintage-y bloggers tend to stray from any trends, which is silly to me because these bomber jackets are SO comfortable and practical for between seasons weather (and frankly, Members Only IS a vintage brand)!  I tied this whole look together with using the Members Only Satin Washed Boyfriend Jacket in burgundy with these platform heels from Amazon by Dadawen.  I feel the burgundy bookends bounce off the greens and blues nicely.

How's everyone's week been?  Thanks for allowing me to take a week off!  Not only did I have obligations at the Comedy Central Stage and the Upright Citizen's Brigade stage this week, but I was hosting one of my very best friends who came to visit me!  …
