Rad Plaid

I have been wanting to start clashing more patterns in my wardrobe lately, so I decided to start simple and load up on plaids. I was going for a look similar to this girl (who I totally just found right now):

I wore a tartan type plaid red, white, and blue dress with a red and black buffalo check flannel with a tartan cream, red, green, and yellow jacket. I actually love how it all came together!

Here is the whole outfit :
I am not sure what my face is doing.
Here is a closer view (Sorry for my crappy pictures and giant UO bag. I was Christmas shopping for my friends!):
You can just barely see the flannel under the jacket, but whatever.
Again, sorry for bad quality. I have been very busy and only had time to take an action shot on the go today. I must say I will most definitely be venturing further into the pattern clashing world! It is much easier to put together and pull off then I expected!

Gold Rush

I am dedicating an entire post to this pair of boots I just got. I've been dying for gold boots for the longest time and finally got my hands on these for $49 on Etsy. (Although I am still eyeing a $260 pair.)
I need to clean my baseboards...
 They look a little silver in pictures, but they are definitely all gold in person. And not only are they a beautiful pair of gold booties, but they are a beautiful pair of gold booties WITH CATS

 LOOK AT THAT SHIT LIKE WHAT. They are a little scuffed up, but I actually only noticed when I went to take these pictures. They both have cat heads on the outside of the heel and then...
 they wrap around the heel...

 AND BECOME LITTLE CAT BUTTS. WHAT.
 I kind of love how scuffed up the toes are because it makes them look used and loved. They come up maybe two or three inches above my ankles. The toes have a bit of a point to them which I love even though they make my feet look a little longer. I have been wearing them with everything from black lace dresses to skinny jeans and a sweater. They go great with everything and add a lot of character to boring outfits. I am just completely in love with these boots and I think I have started a gold shoe addiction.

Thankful For Outfits and Animals.

This Thanksgiving I'd like to thank the world for my dog, Murphy and my cat, Miss Whiskers. They are perfect creatures and I love them more than all humans. I got my dog Murphy in the summer of 2005. She has lived through pneumonia, a slipped spinal disk, and a bunch of surgeries. She is my best friend in the world~
 I got my cat in spring 2011. She is the sassiest person ever and doesn't take any shit. She love/hates me and the rest of the world. She is pretty much exactly like me.

My outfit today is one of my favorites. Although it is unflattering on my figure, I love the dress! I found this old 80's blouse in my mother's closet! It is so amazing with huge shoulder pads, buttons that look like pearls, and cut out lace around the collar. My shoes were a past Christmas present and I managed to rip the front walking up some brick steps.

Hello Blogging World.

Seeing as I am completely new to blogging I am a little unsure of what "blogging" really consists of. I doubt anyone is actually even seeing this right now. It is extremely likely that I am talking to myself right now. I could probably spew my deepest secrets and my life would be effected in no way. I guess that is what confuses me about blogging. There doesn't seem to be a point unless someone is viewing your blog, but how does one obtain readers?! I guess this is why I have avoided blogging for the many years I have been on the internet. In any case, I do hope to use this blog to chronicle my life in a way. I am hoping to use blogging as a way of being able to express my love of fashion more and "let my creativity shine" or something. Any who I guess that pretty much sums up my *first blog post ever.*
