the new girl in town

Hey Shorty

Posted in fashion by Dani on March 3, 2010

Okay, sugar plums: I promise I have a legit excuse for the mini post lull over the past week or so. I have been sick for over five days! No joke, darlings. Fortunately, I am all better now.

As spring looms near (and a little bit too far away), shorts are popping everywhere. I noticed this fresh new style trend last month: (… yes, muffins. In February. Haha.) Take a peek for yourself with H&M‘s sassy shorts report. Very informative if I may say so myself.

When taking a look at international stores within the H&M family, I seemed to lean toward the classic chic look. Case in point, these.

In addition to H&M, it seems that Forever 21 has countless pairs of these pants online. Is it just me or do you just love the fact that Forever 21 has several different brands to choose from? My favorite of the brilliant bunch? Love 21 Contemporary. With that written, my favorite shorts from the cluster of cuties would have to be Love 21 Contemporary’s long belted shorts.

What is your favorite trend of the spring season, doll faces? I would love to know!

Stay warm,



Inspired Attire

Posted in art, fashion by Dani on November 21, 2009

Today's Attire. The description can found on the left. Pardon the "Polly Pocket"-sized hands & massive "line backer" shoulders. While I do have super broad shoulders, I doodled in ink, which is very unforgiving but very worthwhile as well.

Because I was so inspired by Rachel‘s wicked style that I blogged about yesterday, I decided to play with legwear a bit today myself. I was so happy with all of the positive feedback I received today. It made me happy about trying some new this morning. Today, I wore:

Spectacles from Urban Outfitters

– A forest green, navy, & white flannel shirta white v-neck, and a white tank top from Target

– White & navy seersucker-esque shorts from Old Navy (It was on clearance for only $3!)

Charcoal tights from Target

Black UGG-esque boots from Payless Shoes (Love!)

So what do you think? Yea or nay?

Happy, happy Friday,
