I apologize for the absence this past month. It has been an intense year with many ups and downs. The day after Halloween my mother had a stroke. Thankfully she is doing amazingly well, and exceeding ALL the Dr's expectations. She will be returning home soon and the hubby and I are moving in a couple of weeks from Utah to Texas, where I can help her and be with family.
I wanted to share some Christmas joy and am really loving the retro saturated look of red, white and yellow/gold. Classic colors with cheeky graphic punches make for a fun holiday look. I'm especially in love with the Kate Spade telephone salt and pepper shakers!

Tis the week of Halloween! And I am sure many of you are looking for last minute Halloween costume ideas. I decided to go retro 90's with Courtney Love, Drew Barrymore, and Drew as Casey in Scream.
For Courtney grab and babydoll dress, a tiara, rip up your tights, slip on some combat boots, rim your eyes in dark smudgy eyeliner and smear on some red lipstick.
90's Drew Barrymore loved Daisies! Get a daisy headband, layer some pastel slips, and grab some chunky shoes. Throw up a peace sign! and slick on some vamp lipstick.
For Drew in Scream put on a cream colored sweater, khakis, tuck your hair under a blonde bob wig, and smear blood all over. Bonus points for carrying a cordless phone!
"Whats your favorite scary movie?"
Now that the weather is getting chilly I am finding myself constantly reaching for my Fatigue Jacket layered with my Jean Vest. It gives such a cool, edgy, grungy look to whatever I pair it with. I'm loving my F21 Skinny Jeans. They are ankle length, and skinny ALL THE WAY down through calves, which if you are Plus Size you know is hard to find, most often they are glorified Straight Legged jean. I'm getting back into rocking my Frye boots, which are AMAZINGLY comfortable, I love them! I love adding a bit of pattern with my leopard print scarf that I have had for years.
I've been going dark with my makeup, rocking smokey eyes and dark lips. LOVE IT!
What are some of your go to Fall items?

Halloween is coming! So I thought I'd take inspiration from one of the greatest Halloween movies of all time....HOCUS POCUS! Such a visually exciting and fun movie.
I love this movie and it is definitely one I watch each year.
