Black is Best

People are always making fun of me because I own so much black. If I had to think numbers, I would say at the least 60% and at the most 80%.

It’s not that I planned it that way. It just so happens the sweaters, shirts, pants, etc. that I like and look good in tend to be black. And don’t get me started on my dresses.

I am overflowing in black dresses. I even try super hard to get colors, any color; but it never works. But hey, you know what they say about black dresses:

I guess the reason I gravitate towards it is that black always looks good.

And unlike certain colors that can only be worn at certain times of the year, black can be worn anytime and everywhere (except a day or afternoon wedding).

And no matter the occasion, chore, meeting, etc.; black clothing works for what ever you are doing that day:

But I guess they are right. My closet could use a little more variety of color.

Just A Friendly Reminder

 

Back to the Future II

So most of the clothes from “2015” are a mix of ’80s wear taken to the extreme mixed with the stuff you would see on Star TrekAnd while there are some crazy costumes in here.

They do have some advantages. First of all, the clothes are one size fits all.

Duh!

Duh!

Now, hold on. I know you’re thinking what’s so special about that? I mean you can buy “one size fits all” anywhere. Well these are different. The clothes are one size and then automatically shrink down or increase in size so that they fit you perfectly.

Mal_huh Whoa Wow

I know pretty sweet!

This would so fantastic for me. I’m short and pear shaped, so it is extremely difficult to find things that fit just right. If this was real, I’d be first in line to buy it!

ShutUpTake MY Money

They have some other cool features like automatically drying when wet and stuff like that

I wish that was real.

Well chances are that this technology won’t be around next year, but that doesn’t have to stop you from creating your own Back to the Future: Part II inspired wear. I’m definitely going to and I’ll try to post pics!

Check out Back to the Future: Part II for outfit ideas, or just to watch as it is an awesome film!

Fashionably Postworthy

So a lot of people knock fashion down. They say that caring about how one looks is a waste of time and that one should only think about who they are on the inside. Now while it’s true that real beauty comes from within, you shouldn’t completely knock fashion.

Fashion

It’s true. A cute article of clothing can brighten your day. You can feel more confident, more together, and just all around amazing.

Damn hot confidence Lily HIMYM

And just because you are caring about how you look doesn’t mean you have to buy into the fashions of the day. You wear what you like. No matter what anyone else says.

lookgood

I pretty much only shop at thrift stores and people love my finds. People might not like what you are wearing and call you crazy, but you know what? All people with great ideas are considered crazy at first.

It isn’t until afterwards that we recognize their genius and abilities.

Now the only thing to remember is to be careful when creating your own style that you still wear things appropiate to what you are taking part in.

Because you might find yourself in a situation that your clothes just don’t fit right.

But on a whole wear what you want, look good

Day 1) Your Favorite Disney Princess

So my favorite princess may be different from what you all were expecting. Forget Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Elsa, Ana, Merida, etc. This is my favorite Disney princess

Princess Leia

Princess Leia

Now before you say anything she is a Disney princess. Disney bought Star Wars so she is a princess!

Princess Leia

She is the most AWESOME character and princess ever!!!! She heads a rebellion, willing to sacrifice herself for her friends, country, and beliefs. Even when her home planet is threatened, she still won’t reveal the secrets and allow their destruction. She under goes countless torture, but is able to power through it all.

When Han and Luke come to save her, she turns it around and saves herself. She takes a gun and takes out those troopers herself. Because:

Dont_mess_princess

Even after all that she powers through the trauma and leads her people in the next two films. Never afraid to go down there and take care of things herself. She’s s awesome.

She is so awesome! I remember wanting to be her as a kid. I just thought she was the perfect female; strong, powerful, able to hold her own, but at the same time willing to ask and accept help from others. 🙂 I always tried to be just like her, and guess what, I am! Everything it says here is exactly me!

To see who you are go here.

To see who you are go here.

 

So, funny story that I thought I would include here. Now I love Star Wars a whole lot!

Star Wars

I mean this is me:

True story!

True story!

 

This is my future, I’m telling ya.

Star Wars

So I never been one of those girls who plans out her wedding. I was always like, why bother? It’s not going to happen anytime soon.

So I decided that I was going to have a Star Wars themed wedding. My dad will dress up like Darth Vader, I can walk down the asile to the Imperial March, etc. And my groom will dress up like Han Solo

Han_solo

Because who doesn’t want to marry this handsome, redeemed bad boy, space-cowboy?

For my dress I could wear something like she does at the end of episode IV or give it my own flair like this:
