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 ;)

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?
