Top 9 Prom Dresses + Macy’s Prom Fashion Show at MOA

Screen Shot 2016-03-01 at 5.30.54 PM

Got plans for Saturday? I don’t know about you, but I want to make sure I make it to the Macy’s Prom Fashion Show at the Mall of America on Saturday at 2 pm.

I have attended those shows in the past, and even though I am way over prom age, there are always amazing pieces, both accessories, dresses and shoes, that I can wear to weddings or other events.

I have already started thinking about a dress I want to wear for my graduation from the U. Underneath my gown you know 😉

I have also put together a collage of top 9 prom dresses from Macys.com, enjoy!

An Unexpected Match

My new favorite look – sweatshirts over everything. Maybe because of the weather, maybe because I’m comfortable, maybe because there are a lot of fun sweatshirts out there.

One of my coworkers has recently brought in a whole bunch of clothes for us to go through and I found this AE cropped hoodie.

Here is the thing – I am 28 and I don’t wear AE, or A&F, or Hollister, or whatever is there that makes me look like a high school student. But this sweatshirt is everything. It’s soft and warm and OMG has a hood! And I am not using it for working out! What?

Yes! This is the story. The best match ever!

Check out other girls posts and make sure to stop by next week for a thrift haul thrift style thursday post!

Another week has come and gone, and this was a tough one. Sam’s grandma passed away, and even though we all know and feel that she is in a much much better place, and what’s more important, with the one she loved her whole life, Bob, it’s still hard oh the family.

I had a very hard time at work. The last two days have been from hell. I don’t know if it’s something in the water, but I am starting to lose my patience, and the best parts of my days are spent in bed or on the couch. I haven’t really worked out in days! And that’s not typically me.

I also went back to juicing. Mainly to go through all the vegetables in the fridge, so now almost all my recipes include carrots or celery. But once I am through with them, I’ll go back to Costco for more exciting combos.

Summer is looking more exciting than I expected. We are starting it off by getting new siding for our house (it still has the original 1950’s wooden tile) during Memorial Day weekend. Then we are road tripping to Milwaukee for a fun and exciting Midwest Bloggers event called Blogger Bazaar! And another road trip to my friend’s wedding in Colorado in July, we’ll be staying and hiking there for about a week afterwards. I am keeping my fingers crossed for a Chicago trip in August! And grateful for Sam who is on board with me when it comes to all these trips.

And tomorrow we get to go somewhere new and exciting for our family! So keep and eye on my Instagram. If you follow me on Twitter, you know what it is! But since it’s not my news to tell, I am going to stop, wish you all a great Saturday and invite you to link up your outfit posts!

Эта неделя была очень нелегкой. В прошлые выходные умерла бабушка Сэма, и хотя мы все понимаем что ей сейчас намного лучше, и она с любимыми людьми, это очень тяжелая потеря для нашей семьи.

На работе был ад! Особенно в четверг и пятницу. Я просто не хочу там появляться. А когда прихожу домой, то только и хочется лежать на диване. О спортзале я давно забыла, что для меня удивительно.

Но я снова начала делать домашние соки. Основным ингредиентом сейчас является морковка или сельдерей, но это просто потому, что надо опустошить холодильник. Когда все это добро закончится, то можно будет съездить в Costco и купить другие продукты. Тогда миксы будут интереснее.

Лето обещает быть веселым и продуктивным. Через пару недель мы начинаем менять сайдинг на доме. Тут пока все облицовано деревом из 50-х!

В середине июня мы едем в Милуоки на распродажу одежды, аксессуаров и прочее блоггеров. Называется все это блоггерский базар. В июле мы едем в Колорадо на свадьбу, и задержимся там на неделю, чтобы насладится природой. И я очень сильно надеюсь, что в августе у нас получится съездить в Чикаго! Безумно рада что мой муж поддерживает все эти идеи, поездки и события!

Всем отличных выходных!

{27 Dresses} Miche’s Dress

Today’s dress is brought to you by…
Just kidding!

My friend Miche of Buttons and Birdcages answered my call to join the 27 dresses project and I couldn’t be happier! She was with me on Refashion Runway, but I’ve actually been following her for a while!

Here is what the dress is all about:
“I actually found this dress at a thrift store for $1.99! It was a little big, and way too long but I figured those fixes should be easy enough given that it was already pretty cute to begin with. It turned out to be an amazing summer dress 🙂

So here you have it a perfect thrifted summer dress that simply needed to be altered! Doesn’t it look great?

Getting Ready for Friday Thrifting

Thursday night.

We just came back from sailing.

I think my face is a little bit sunburnt.

Well it’s probably dehydration as well.

But tomorrow I only work till 2.45 pm.

And my favorite thrift store of all times has a BOGO sale on women’s shoes and clothing.

So I am going!

Straight from work!

But before I go, I need some ideas.

Something specific to look for.

So here it goes!

 

I really hope to score some sweaters tomorrow 🙂 And put outfits together for you!

Dress Obsessed: Clothes Mentor Haul

I went thrifting, AGAIN. Okay not really thrifting, but consignment shopping 🙂 Big difference, really.

Please let me know if you are getting tired of these posts, but I personally love when other people post hauls, maybe because I get a sneak peek into their closets this way.

I did spend quiet a lot of money, but I had a gift card to that particular location of my beloved Clothes Mentor. And here are some of the treasures I found this time:

1. Ralph Lauren shorts and Jones New York cardigan – so prep school – $9.60 for both of these, as they were 70% off

 

Now for the more expensive stuff (I know, I know you are probably sitting there shaking your head at me, wondering whatever happened to $3 finds at Salvation Army or Goodwill, I promise to bring you hauls from there as well)

2. $20 Anna Sui dress

This baby looks a lot better belted, I am sure she had that in mind when creating this dress, or I just like to accentuate my waist line too much 🙂

 

3. 100% silk dress and slip from Anthropologie, which for once is not attached to the shell! Yay! Because (guess what?) I can wear that slip separately with some other clothes! So this one cost me $24, but with some boots, OMG I can’t wait to wear it!

 

4. Another Anthropologie dress (size 0 – gasp, all the working out is paying off), this time with geometric pattern, and of course pockets (that’s one of my must-haves in a dress) – and this was also $24

 

5. And finally a $15 Anthropologie (yes, surprise surprise – but in all honesty, I think a richer version of me just consigned all those – if you are reading this post, please leave me a comment and let me know if you have any more cool Anthro stuff, I’ll buy it directly from you! I am 100% serious)  dress, which is made of a heavier thicker material, so it’ll definitely be my fall/winter dress, with exposed zipper, which unfortunately you can’t really see 🙂 But it’s awesome nevertheless!

 

Now you gotta comment and tell me which one of these you like the best and which ones are a total fail 🙂

Also, if you are waiting for the “Stories From My Closet” I am going to make you wait a couple more days. I decided to add a Sunday Post to my blog, that way you have something to read with your morning coffee 🙂

Love you all, thanks for reading and looking and checking it all out and commenting!

Anthropologie Arrangement

Since I am going to be at 50th and France tomorrow, I might as well pop into Anthropologie, and check some things out, hopefully even buy something. But knowing me, I’ve already checked everything out in the catalogue (both physical and on-line), and I created this board of fun Anthropologie stuff. Call me crazy, but I think this pharaoh one piece swimsuit is something I would totally wear!

 xoxo,

stay warm if you are in Minneapolis!

Outfit Musings
