Not Just for the Boudoir

I've been noticing this for a bit, but I still haven't mustered up enough courage to give this trend a shot: bralettes as a top.

Just to give you an idea, here are a few of my picks from (all from

This may seem a bit risque at first, but it's a lot more wearable than you think!  If you're like me, and you don't want to wear it bare, the styling options are still pretty limitless!  Here's what I envision:

  • Wear one of the above lovlies with a pair of high-waisted, wide-leg jeans, and throw a blazer on top (keep it unbuttoned if you're feeling bold!)
  • Again sticking with something high-waisted, wear a bralette with a pencil skirt, add a pair of lacey tights, and the sexiest pair of pumps you own.
  • Wear a bralette as a bra, but put a sheer or backless top on.  Think of it as a teaser :)
I definitely need to get my hands on one of these!  Maybe I can hint at it for a V-Day gift ;)

Hi everyone!  This is very unlike me, but could you guys do me a favor and fill out the following survey:

If you read my blog regularly, I mentioned a while back that I've got something brewing in the fashion realm, well this survey is related :)

Thanks so much guys!  Your support is truly appreciated!  I can't wait to tell you more about this!!!

On a completely random note, I will leave you with a Public Service Announcement from Leighton Meester:


Birds of a Feather...

Meet my newest obsession - feather hair extensions:

The minute I saw these, I knew I had to have them.  This fits in perfectly with my flared-almost bell bottomy jeans I've been lusting after ;)

This gorgeous hair accessory is made from different colored rooster feathers (love the black/natural striped ones!!), and they can be heat-styled (on a medium to low heat).

I'm not big on dying my hair, or getting highlights (I haven't done that in over 6 years), but I love that these feather hair extensions add a little pizazz without the damage of dye.  The type I ordered was the clip in version, but many salons have started to offer semi-permanent feather hair extensions.  They work in the same way that normal hair extensions would in that they grow out with your hair.  I would've loved to get the semi-permanent ones, but I highly doubt it would bode well with my day job :)

I just ordered mine late last week (I found a vendor on etsy that sells them), so once I get it in, I can't wait to share pictures!

What do you think?  Would you give this a try, or is it a little too wild for your tastes?

Mikkat Market


I discovered Mikkat Market on yet another Refinery 29 post.  This e-tailer has edgy, trendy clothing that the owner of the online boutique styles in oh-so-covet-able ways.  Another perk - the pieces are completely affordable!  I actually just purchased this a few days ago, got it in the mail yesterday, and I must say, I'm hooked.

How cute does she make this look!?  Hopefully I can pull it off with similar flair!

Needless to say, this has definitely been added to my list of stalk-worthy online shopping sites.

See anything you like??


WhoWhatWear Style Circle

I've been a terrible blogger lately!  And I apologize for those few that actually come and stop by my site.  Anyways, I had completely forgotten I had applied to this, but just a couple of days ago, I got an email from Who What Wear saying I had been chosen to be a part of their Style Circle!  What an honor!!!

The email said, "Congratulations!  You are now part of the Who What Wear's Style Circle.  Please look out for emails and special packages from us and, as always, don't forget to share your thoughts!"

Very excited to see what comes of this :)
