So… do you remember when I made some image changes so that I was able to provide you dear readers with Fashion Friday last week? Well, even though it was easier, it still wasn’t easy enough, so I’m back to just posting one piece on Fridays. Sorry! But let’s move on! Remember that key necklace I posted a whole month ago (wow…), this necklace is that one’s long-lost cousin. And if you put both of them together, you can say that you have the key to many hearts! Yes, I know. My jokes are lame. Did you happen to notice the one in the title? Get it–charming? God, I make myself sick. Back to the necklace. I would love to wear it with simple, flowy dress and some sandals. I think it has a sort of casual, not-trying-too-hard vibe to it.

Express is selling it for $26.50, here, and I think they’re having some sort of sale on jewelry… Maybe you should go check that out, too? Helpful suggestion.

spats style knee high boots. gangster. June 17, 2009

I’ll probably be telling you to help out Vitamin Angels (look at the bottom of that sidebar to your right) for at least a week, so check out yesterday’s post for full details. Go!

So, Plasticland, where these delicious boots are from, claims that these are fashioned after the 1930’s gangster style. Huh. I never knew that gangsters wore heels and spats. This just puts my view of the old-time mob into a whole new perspective. But I digress. I love them. Truly. Sure I say that a lot on this blog, but my feelings are genuine. Too bad I love more items than I can afford. Curse you, money! Ahem. I’m not really sure what I would style with these boots, but it makes me want to wear an old Victorian dress and tiny top hat a la the movieDracula. The costumes in that movie were simply superb, even if the movie wasn’t. Good luck finding such an outfit.

White & Black Spats Style Knee High Boots

i see you're gangster. i'm pretty gangster myself.

At least you can buy these boots! Get them here, for $59. Sizes run small and are available in 6 through 9 (with no half sizes in between), but the good news is that they are vegan friendly, like all of the Plasticland shoes that I list. Yay for tree-huggers!

monday mania. wide basketweave belt. June 15, 2009

I love this belt. Well, I love all waist belts, really. I think that they can make anyone look like they have an hourglass figure.

Forever21 sells this one in black and brown, here, for $7.80. It comes in sizes small/medium and medium/large. I guess there’s no in-between for this thing… High maintenance, for sure.

sunday shopping spree. sweet dresses. June 14, 2009

So, when I write “sweet,” I don’t mean “suh-weet!” I mean “people will think you are sweet.” You know? Kind of saccharine and innocent? Like that. But moving on: today, I have six different dresses, from six different retailers, and I love every single one of them. Maybe it’s because I’m really into dresses, or maybe it’s because I like indulging in my girly side once in a while. No matter the reason, the fact is, they are here, and they want you to buy them! Well, I guess I’m just putting words into their non-existent mouths, but you get what I mean.

woven tea party dress.

I don’t go to any tea parties, but if I did (and I desperately want to do so), I would definitely wear this dress, with a large sunhat. And maybe some gloves? You get the picture. As the cheapest dress, at $22.80, it seems as if my hopes of wearing this dress (regardless of whether or not it’s at a tea party) are not lofty. Get it here, at Forever21, and you can choose from sizes small to large in this color (fuschia, or pink) or orange.

drawstring plaid dress.

Okay, first off: doesn’t this dress look purple? Doesn’t it?! Sigh. Is it just me because I can’t tell if I’ve been looking at the computer too long? Well, anyway, the reason that I ask so fervently for agreement is because Papaya says it’s “light grey,” which I know must be wrong. Oh, well. Get it here, for $26.99, in this color or a nice navy. It comes in sizes small to large.

black and white plaid corset dress.

Some people probably won’t agree with me that this is a sweet dress, but I stand by the fact that I think it is. Sweet like a school girl. Or something. Get it here, at Hot Topic (where else?) for the ultimately sweet price of half-off! Yes, that’s right. It’s now $30.98, instead of its original tag of $62.00. This plaid is the only color, but the range of sizes includes extra small to extra extra large. That’s my commercialized store! Spreading punk to the masses!

daydream sun dress.

I think this dress can claim the title of “Sweetest Dress of Them All.” It’s white, for one, and it has that pure innocence look about it, don’t you think? Cutiemues is selling it for $52 here, and it comes in sizes small to large.

Cultural Trust Dress

cultural trust dress.

ModCloth always has the most elegant and endearing dresses. I love them. Even though this dress is quite black, I think that it is still a sweet dress for its neckline, ruffles, and darling buttons. Who doesn’t like little buttons in a sweet dress? No, really. Tell me who, and I’ll kick their ass. Ahem. It comes in sizes small to large here, for $64.99.

delightful blue petal like prom dress.

Last (but certainly not least, as you will soon see when I write the price), is this gorgeous, ethereal dress. Sure, the name has the word “prom” in it, but I could easily see it being worn at a fancy dinner or something equally high-class. Although, I’m not really sure how you would sit down in this thing. I would think that the “petals” would be a downright bother. If you don’t think so (or don’t care), Unique Vintage sells them here, and it’s on sale for $88, in sizes extra small to large. But! If this gorgeous blue isn’t your thing, it also comes in white, pink, orange, and black, where the choice of sizes and the price is the same. Secret: I think this dress would make me look like a fairy, and that is precisely the reason that I like it.

slacker saturday. vintage print tote. June 13, 2009

I use totes all the time, especially for school. They’re great to carry notebooks and pens and any other school supply you can think of (that will fit in a tote… It’s hard to carry a three-hole puncher in one of those things, let me tell you.) to class.

unexpected and versatile.

Need a bag for hauling shit around campus? Get it here, at Cutiemus. It’s $22, but I think that’s a small price to pay for a tote that looks like a purse that’s actually useful. Fascinating.

fashion friday. dresses, tights, and ankle boots. June 12, 2009

Okay, so I decided to present these outfits in a different way this time (and future times, probably), by using Polyvore to put the clothes into one cohesive image, rather than a million different pictures. Those pictures were extremely hard to format, and while I do not consider this way any better, in terms of aesthetics (on the contrary, I did like the find the other way better to look at), I do find it much, much easier to do. So there you go. This week I put together a cute, sleeveless dress, footed tights, and ankle boots for your viewing pleasure. Once again, these outfits are put together by category: under $20, under $40, and under $1000. The over $1000 category is way too impractical and works mostly for single items, rather than whole outfits, so don’t expect to happen any time soon. Anyway, onto the outfits!

under $20
All of the items above are priced less than $20. What you can’t see in this picture of those white (“cream”) tights is that they have a lace pattern on them that is quite nice. You can get them here, at Forever21, and they are on sale for $2.99. I think that three dollars for tights is lovely, don’t you? Next up, the dress. It’s $19.50 at Wet Seal, here, and comes in sizes small to large. Okay, so the deal with those boots? Newport News (those bastards…) do not have a picture of the shoe color that I chose from their website. What kind of retailer are they?! Disgusting… But, they *did* have a swatch of the color, which is what is in front of you now. Yeah, that purple color. Your job: imagine those boots, in that color. And get them here, for $17.99, and choose from sizes 5 to 10 and 11.

save $40
All of the items above are priced less than $40. These tights are so gorgeously purple (or “lily,” as Shopbop describes them…), and I love them. Get them here, for $36. They come in sizes small to medium/large (with two sizes in between, so go check it out). Next up, that lovely dress. Lace is a love of mine, of course. I think the contrast of girly and down-to-earth (from the boots) make for a nice combination. Get it here, at Forever21, for $22.80. The dress comes in sizes extra small to large. I really like these boots, as well, although I know that some of you dear readers won’t. They are cowboy boots, after all. You can buy them here, in sizes 6 to 9, from Wet Seal.

under $1000
All of the items above are priced less than $1000. I like this outfit most of all (at least, I think so… I really like all of the outfits, though), mostly because of the boots and the dress. So retro! Anyway, the tights are available here, at Shopbop, and they come in size 4 (which I take to mean the regular tights sizing and not juniors or misses sizing…). Yes, they are foldover, but who’s really going to see that when you have that dress on? Also, I know that these only have one size available right now, but I’m so sure that that will change soon that I decided to post them anyway. So there. The dress is from Anthropologie (after that disgusting romper, I needed something to remind me how awesome this store is most of the time…), and you can find it here, for $128. It comes in sizes extra small to large. Finally, those fabulous boots! Look at that bow! Get them here, at ModCloth, for $42.99. You can choose from sizes 5.5 to 9, and you better. Who better to wear these shoes than one of my readers? Oh, right. ME.

thrifty thursday. cute flats. June 11, 2009

Filed under: shoes. — stylistanumberone @ 6:21 am

Today for your thrifty pleasure, I have five nice pairs of flats, which are all under $20. I love flats. For one, they are very comfortable (well, only if you actually buy comfortable ones…) and can look both casual and dressy. Ah, the wonders of the modern shoe! Anyway, here they are, ascending price order:

Max Rave - Women's Bow Flats

max rave - women's bow flats.

First off are these super cute (and super cheap) bow-featuring, heart-printed (on the inside, at least) lovelies. Which you can find these pink ones here, at Walmart, for $13. They come in four different colors, though: the already-mentioned pink (sizes 6 and 7 to 9.5), blue (sizes 7, 8, and 9), gold (sizes 6 and 8), and black (sizes 6 and 7 to 9). Why, yes (I do love parentheses).

These ones look so damn comfortable! Can’t you imagine slipping them on and feeling better about the day ahead because at least your shoes won’t hurt you? Or is that too depressing? Regardless, these shoes would probably make someone ridiculously happy. They come in sizes 5 to 10 and 11, and you can get them here, at Target. That happiness will cost you $17.99, though.

SILVER

I really like that strap across the middle of these shoes. It reminds me of the kinds of shoes that dolls wear, which I find adorable. Hopefully, you do, too. Find them here, at Wet Seal, for $18.50. They come in this silver and a nice black, and the sizes available include 6 to 9 and 10.

Okay, I understand that many people may not like the dazzling shoes that lay here before them, but hear me out: um, yeah, I don’t really have an excuse. Never mind, then. Get them here, at Target if they don’t scare you. For $18.80, you can choose from sizes 6 to 10 (with no half sizes in between) in this great gold color.

patent cut out flats.

Lastly, I have these interesting and dressy flats from Charlotte Russe. They remind me of summer and garden parties. Want some of that in your life? Buy them here for $18.99, in colors white, black, and yellow. They come in sizes 6 to 10 (once again, with no half sizes in between). Go forth and prosper in shoes.
