Friday Favorites #42

Thursday, January 29, 2015

I'm back from my honeymoon + Amelia is back from her business trip to LA so Friday Favorites is back!  We're in sort of a post-vacation malaise right now, so we're gravitating towards quirk + kitsch this week!



It's sort of a happy accident that I just left Florida where it's still warm and sunny and this little collage turned out to be slightly nautical.  I've been working on building my separates collection lately to expand my wardrobe around more mix 'n' matching and I'm lusting after all sort of striped things.  I also threw in the Martini, Extra Flirty! Top + the White Pearl Poodle Pin because well... they're awesome.


Kate Spade Lyssa Glasses (51 mm) in Gold Glitter

While Collin + I stopped through Georgia on the way to our honeymoon, we did Christmas with my in-laws and one of my gifts was an Amazon gift card.  I was incredibly excited because I've had my eye on these Kate Spade Lyssa Glasses (51 mm) in Gold Glitter for a while now.  I grabbed myself a pair, but now I can't decide whether to fill my prescription normally or as sunglasses because they look so cute both ways! What do y'all think?



I was recently surprised with a care package from Doll Me Up Darling.  I'd initially packed the adorable Teapot Cardigan to wear while I was in Disney World on Mad Tea Party but we ended up doing the parks in a different order than we'd initially planned so I can't wait to style it soon!  The package also included this Vixen Vendetta Top and some nylon hair scarves.  She's also doing 10% off storewide with promo code "lovestruck" right now.

Usually novelty purses aren't really my thing, but I've seen some really cute ones around lately and thought I'd share a few of my favorites.  I love the Kate Spade Over the Moon Rocket Clutch the most but I think I would have to my soul to afford it.  I also really love the Edith + Ella White Signature Purse.  Edith + Ella actually release their signature purse in varying colors depending on the season and I'm hoping to snag a baby pink one I saw a while back.  The best part is, that all their bags come with those little cherry adornments. 

Pinup Girl Clothing Maria Dress in Purple and Blue

A LONG time ago when Pinup Girl Clothing let us peak into the new harlequin prints (which are now the new-er harlequin prints but aren't so new anymore) they also let us peep these beautiful floral dresses.  Quite a while passed and they weren't released, so I assumed maybe something had happened and they were pulled and they'd decided not to release them.  BUT LO AND BEHOLD, last week, there they were!  I absolutely love them andddd I'm PRETTY sure I need both.

To end, this amazing GIF of Dita Von Teese being stunning + my ultimate hair goals....

  1. I hope you ladies had fun on your trips, as painless as a business trip can be haha and judging from IG, the honeymoon was a blast.


    Those PUG floral dresses are stunning, oh my goodness!! I am a huge fan of floral prints and those are screaming "hurry up spring!" Luckily for me, Florida is basically either spring or summer all year long so I rock floral year round hahaha. Lately I've been trying to be more of a maker than a consumer, so I made a few 50's style bralette tops as well as a few dresses.

  2. Ohmygosh those Kate Space glasses are perfect!!! I think I would personally put lenses in them. I've gotten so lazy and wear my glasses everywhere.

  4. Ohemgee totally in love with that Cherry Sweet of You top! And I think you would rock the Gold Glitter sunglasses June, especially with Spring around the corner. Have either of you ever seen the BBC's Call The Midiwfe? The fashion and music are perfect, I think you both would love it if you haven't already seen it! X

  5. That Dita GIF is mesmerizing! And definitely ultimate hair goals! Those Kate Spade glasses are divine!! I would probably get them as sunglasses but they'll definitely be super cute either way. :)

  8. Well thank you, and it was a blast!!! I feel like I'm style recovering! haha

    I rock floral all year long as well (guilty!) but I also really love the tie sash belts that are attached to those dresses and that's awesome! I really wish I knew how to sew -- I really need to learn! How is the making coming along?! Feel free to share photos, I bet your things are lovely!

  9. I love them, so fun! I have to wear glasses, my ophthalmologists have told me contacts aren't an option for me so glasses it is! I think I'll probably go ahead and put lenses in them - I can't resist.

  10. It really is adorable, I love the open back -- perfect for summer! And I think I might put regular lenses in them and snag some slightly plainer frames for my prescription sunglasses, such a tough decision! And I have, it's actually in my Netflix "queue" but I haven't watched it yet. Obviously I need to! : )

  11. Aren't they adorable? I've had really bad luck with transition lenses in the past, sadly, they like to turn dark on me indoors. haha

  12. I think I'm going to fill them as regular glasses and find something a bit more plain for sunglasses... maybe... such a tough decision! haha

  15. I'm glad you had a good time! These are a few of my most recent projects, the dress was for a friend ☺️ sewing is something I've been doing a long time but recently got into making clothes. It's a great balance of relaxation and frustration hahaha.
