terrible tuesday. joie de vivre tunic dress. July 7, 2009

I… dislike this dress. I don’t particularly like the pattern or the colors, and I think that the contrasting fibers overwhelm the simple design.

joie de vivre tunic dress.

But if you like looking your grandma’s tea cozy, Cutiemus is selling this monstrosity here, for the bargain price (as far as handmade tea cozies go, at least) of $48. If you wear sizes medium or large, you should be in luck. Whether that luck is good or bad depends on your perception.

terrible tuesday. suitcases large recycled overnight bag. June 30, 2009

Okay, I know that some of you will disagree with my choice today. It’s not quite as terrible as many other things out there, but I think it’s damn ugly. I find this bag garish and unnecessary.

Suitcases Large Recycled Overnight Bag

But! On the plus side, this bag is made of recycled materials and is vegan friendly, which is just like Plasticland, really. Get it here, for $24.  If you want to waste your money.

thrifty thursday. un-girly accessories. June 18, 2009

I’m pretty sure that I made that word up, “un-girly.” Oh, well. That’s what this blog is all about: making up shit. It’s what I do. Actually, I have no idea what I’m typing right now, so I’m just going to stop. This week, I found five different accessories that girly-girls would probably not wear, but I like them anyway. In ascending order, here they are:

Coinbeast Coin Purse by Blue Q

First up is this hilarious, quirky, adorable coin-eating monster coin purse. Sure, it’s not girly, but it’s completely unexpected, and you will get the craziest reactions from people, I think. Such as, “What the fuck is that?” and “You’re fucking weird, man…” Priceless. Except not really because it costs $6.50 (almost priceless) here, at Plasticland.

pinstripe fedora.

Papaya is selling this great fedora in a versatile grey, and you can buy it here, for their sale price of $7.99. How many girly chicks do you know who wear hats?! Yes, I just made a generalization, and yes, I’m being sarcastic in order to make up for the fact that I couldn’t think of anything witty to say about this piece. Thank you.

My Pet Octopus Ring

my pet octopus ring.

I think this ring is beyond cool, but octopi are definitely not know for being a girl’s best friend. At least, I don’t think they are… Regardless, if the thought of those little legs on your finger and this octopus adoringly looking up at you make you smile instead of shudder, pick on up here, at ModCloth, for $7.99. He (doesn’t it look like a he?) comes in antique gold (which looks like brass) and this silver, and ModCloth also sells a cuff and necklace.

gun grenade charm necklace

To me, guns are a bad-ass accessory, but I know that a lot of people don’t like them. But! A fake gun on a necklace will do nobody any harm. So get yours here, at Hot Topic, where they’re selling it for $12.

Wild Goose Pocket Watch Necklace in Brushed Brass

wild goose pocket watch necklace in brushed brass.

Finally, this necklace that may remind you of your grandpa. It looks pretty vintage and can probably be used in a girly outfit, but because it has a goose on it, I labeled as un-girly. Stereotypical, I know. Anyway, get this gorgeous thing here, at Lulu*s, for $19, where I just make it under the $20 mark. Yay!

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. graphic tee, vest, shorts, and necklace. May 22, 2009

So… another feature is born! I decided that I have way too many clothes in the backlogs of my bookmarks for this blog, so the easiest way to get rid of them quicker is to post them en masse. Every friday, I will post three different outfits that I have put together from the three categories that I use most: under $20, under $40, and under $1000. Each piece in the outfit will reflect the category, for you, the discerning shopper. This week, I decided to put together a combination of a graphic tee, a buttoned vest, shorts, a necklace, and shoes that matched the shirt. I would definitely wear each outfit, so decide your budget… I hope you like the outfits!

kadjkfajdaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa All of the items above are less than $20. I really like how this outfit turned out. I don’t think that it’s too matchy-matchy at all, but maybe you’ll disagree…? You can find the tee (yes, I know “embellished” is spelled wrong, but I just wrote what Wet Seal had on their website. Pathetic…) at Wet Seal, here, for $12.90, in sizes extra small to large. The vest is from Windsor, for $13.98, here. It comes in sizes petite (which, I believe, is smaller than small) to large. Regardless of the picture, it is in black. The necklace comes from Forever21, here, for $7.80. The shorts are from Charlotte Russe. Buy them here for $16.99, in sizes 1 through 13. Lastly, the shoes. Those gorgeously-colored shoes… Get them here, at Forever21. They are $18.80 and come in sizes 6 through 9, with no half sizes in between.

All of the items above are less than $40. I know that this outfit, with its wide range of purples, will not appeal to everyone, but I absolutely love the top that I chose for it. Skulls = my obsession, remember? Of course you do… Well, to recreate this outfit, buy it here, at Plasticland for $25. The shirt comes in sizes small, medium, and large. Next, the vest can found here, at ModCloth for $34.99 and also comes in sizes small, medium, and large. The necklace you should buy is the “mist” color (it’s actually white.) for $20, here at Plasticland. Those cute shorts can be found at LuLu*s for $24, here, in sizes 0 and 3 to 11. Finally, those cute shoes! Don’t they really remind you of the Jetsons for which they’re named? Grab them at ModCloth for $34.99, here, in sizes 6 through 10, with no half sizes available.

All of the items pictured are priced less than $1000. Like the outfits before this one, I love this shirt, as well. Look at that gorgeous plum color! And that crazy-ass dog! Fascinating… I think the white vest really makes it pop out at you, too. So… get it here, at Bluefly. For $69, you can get it in sizes extra small to extra large so that you, too, can have a sequined dog on your chest. Next, the white vest, which you can buy at Urban Outfitters, here. It comes in sizes extra small to large, for $48. The necklace, which I also adore, is $135 at Bluefly, here. Those black shorts are available in sizes 24 to 32 for $133 at Shopbop, here. Last, the shiny shoes are also from Shopbop, here, on sale for $227.50 (An odd number, I know. Are they taking tips from Forever21?). They are available in sizes 5.5 to 9 and 10.

Well, that’s it, dear readers! I hope you enjoyed my new feature, and look forward to next week’s equally fun outfits!

ruched halter top. more peacock feathers… May 20, 2009

Filed under: clothes. — stylistanumberone @ 6:09 am
Tags: , , , ,

Okay, I admit it. I’m obsessed. Only this time it’s peacock feathers. You know, to add to my list of keys, bows, ruffles, dresses, skulls, plaid, buttons… OH GOD I AM OBSESSED WITH EVERYTHING. Excuse me while I go cry in the corner. …I’m back! This shirt has quite a few things going for it. First off, the, um, peacock feather print (which we’ve already established, as you may know.), which is well-placed and not boring at all. Second, is the style: this type of halter is one of my favorites, but if you have broad shoulders, you may want to hold off on buying it, if you dislike making them look bigger. If not, buy away! Third, the color is gorgeous and quite versatile. This shirt would go well with nice black pants, like on the mannequin, or even a high-waisted skirt to make it interesting.

more peacock feathers?

If you’re not tired of the peacock feather theme, buy this shirt here, at Papaya, for $14.99. It comes in sizes small, medium, and large, but they should sell out quickly because the other color of this shirt, brown, is already sold out. Go now!

clear goldfish motif umbrella. very unique. May 11, 2009

Filed under: accessories. — stylistanumberone @ 6:20 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I love those clear umbrellas that kind of wrap around you so that you can be inside a protective bubble of sorts. I want one. This one would be absolutely perfect because it has fish on it. I love fish. So it is doubly exciting for me. The weather changes a lot where I live, so I think this umbrella would be perfect to carry around and get that non-wet feeling.

look at all the fishes!

For $25, you can have this goldfish umbrella all for yourself. Get it here at Unique Vintage and never be wet again!
