navy star jumpsuit - one teaspoon
gold cuff - nicki minaj
gold crystal necklace - sofia vergara
gold chain - charming charlie

this jumpsuit is like gypsy love. It's fitted through the bodice and then the wide sweep of the pants is so much fun. Pockets, arm chains, button up back, low neck, bat wing arms = first sight love. The arm chains un hook from the suit for washing/untangling. I decided to full on accessorize with some of my fav gold pieces. I can totally see myself wearing this into fall unhooking the chains and adding a velvet jacket with boots.

Hannah Goff Frog Print Dress

Hannah Goff Frog Print Hi-Lo Dress Spring 2013 Collection
Sandals - rue21
I fell in love with this frog print the moment I saw it. I'm not usually one who goes for animal print let alone frogs on a dress! The print is simply mesmerizing. Until you get up close you don't even realize you're looking at mirrored frogs. I was a little sad the camera didn't pick up all the detail in natural light. The sides are darkened to give an illusion of a slimmer shape and the inside is lined with a stiffer material except for the skirt bottom. The skirt bottom is so light and floaty is simply flows when you walk. Hannah has some gorgeous dress prints and designs but this design is my favorite.

Summer Fedora Style Steal and DIY

While running in the Dollar Tree to pick up some tissue paper I saw they had straw fedoras!... At the Dollar Tree! I had been looking for a light fedora for summer since all I have are black felt ones.
After I got home I thought why didn't I buy a couple more and put different colored ribbon, belts, jewels, etc. on them.
I diyed this one up with a few vintage clip on earrings that were missing their pair.

You must check out your local dollar tree and see if they have them in stock. You can buy them on their website but you have to buy a case of 36...

a superheros shoes to fill

shoes - dccomics

I pulled out some oldschool superman tennis shoes the other day. I got these years ago. I had an undeniable crush on Dean Cain as Superman. gosh that seems like ages ago... I never really wore them but I've found myself wearing them quite a lot lately. A good alternative to flip flops. I really love the bright red contrast trim and who doesn't want to play supergirl for the day? :)
