Marvelous Monday

You know the drill! There will probably be a few not-of-the-usual items on this list since I’m not planning on doing a Things I Love Thursday post this week. Without further ado….

  • The Hellz Bellz summer 2009 collection is very droolworthy!
  • Hell yes, lady!
  • This post at Dream Sequins made me feel all sniffly-but-happy.
  • I really love to put the foot-rest up on the recliner and then curl my feet under myself, and use that area as a fuzzy blue desk. Weird, I know. But it’s nice! (until I lean too far forward and tip the chair!)
  • Cult Rock Posters at Foxy Man (maybe not entirely SFW?)
  • These Jeffrey Campbell boots give me a modern-day Marie Antoinette vibe and I am having serious shoe-lust for them!
  • I also want these shoes, which would make me a whopping 5′6″. (Have I mentioned I’m really, really short?)
  • Some wisdom from Miss Piggy, via Wicked Halo.
  • When it was Q&A time she asked “how do you do take care of yourself if you don’t like yourself, your body?” I wanted to walk over and hug the hate right out of her. “But you are God. You are Jesus, Buddha, Elvis, Etc.” from here. I don’t know anything else about that site; really, I skimmed the rest of that entry, but that quote is GOLD.
  • My sewing room is almost entirely set up! I’m just finishing up washing some of the fabrics and I will be ready to start creating!
  • I somehow found myself on the Forever 21 website a few days ago, and found a few cute things…then immediately felt guilty about it. So I took a look around Ruche and they continue to amaze with their consistently cute and well priced clothing; these shorts are going to be a must have for me,I love the cut of this shirt, though not the color of it, but it’s cotton = dyeable, I love the detailing on this organic gray tank, and I keep waffling on these culottes. I’m trying to add more non-skirt bottoms into my wardrobe, but I think they might be too slouchy/casual for me. Anyways, I don’t have the cash for any of this right now (though it has all been wisted!) but I feel much better, ethically, drooling over things from Ruche than F21.
  • Also on my wishlist now: a ton of stuff from E.L.F. And it’s not tested on animals either!
  • I really liked the everything under $100 Lucky magazine. No amazing editorials, for sure, but I found myself folding down almost every other page because there was something covetable (and at least somewhat affordable!) on it.

1. Coraline, 2. PICT0048, 3. black lace and pink cupcakes, 4. i took off my shoes

I have some of that Alice in Wonderland card fabric, in white/pink/red…I’m planning on finally making a skirt from it this week and I am excited to be able to wear it!!

What’s getting your week off to a great start, hmmm?

    Wow. I totally missed your link to my Yes We Can post! Thanks so much. It’s something that means a lot to me. F21 is my secret guilty pleasure too. Forever is my secret lover. I may feel guilty about it– but I keep going back over and over.

    @Freya - I know! It made me so happy.
    @DreamSequins - I was really happy to see it; I think things like that don’t get touched on enough. <3 I really try HARD not to buy from F21…but sometimes it’s difficult!

    @Alicia yes! They still have some stuff that’s way too “street” for me (for lack of a better word?) but they have some seriously cute stuff too!
