jacket by Dots-Dots, dress-thrifted (label removed), feather necklace-Burlington Coat Factory, textured blue tights-Dollar Tree, Vivica wedges-ShoeDazzle

If the measure of a successful Thanksgiving is found within the meal then ours was pretty good. We had 3 types of pie! (pecan, pumpkin, mincemeat-not my thing). We also got to catch up with family that we hadn’t seen in a while.

I had found this totally cute dress at a thrift store not long ago & loved it. It’s more of a spring/summer dress but I couldn’t wait that long to wear it. Since it has a bit of teal in it I added this teal jacket I got at Dots a while back. It’s a bit of an awkward wear since it hits at the elbow. Later I had to add a cardigan for warmth.

I also had a teal feather necklace that I had bought when I thought that I was going as Kesha for Halloween. I ended up being a flapper instead. Though I hadn’t seen myself in the feather necklace trend prior to this I thought that since I had it I might as well wear it. I ended up digging it.

I just had to wear my cute Vivica wedges (also seen here) from ShoeDazzle with it. The nude tights that I’d laid out had a run and I wasn’t keen on wearing leggings that hit at the ankle with these shoes. That’s how I decided on my super blue tights (also seen here). They take it a bit over the top but then again so am I.

Jovovich-Hawk for Target Dobby Shirt-eBay, black Bongo jeas-Kmart, Peeping Tom floral lace cami-Dots, teal necklace by Crystalline Dreams-gift, belt-Dots, Clarks boots-thrifted

In 2008 actress Milla Jovovich also had a thriving upscale clothing line called Jovovich-Hawk, which she started in 2003. In 2008 she and business partner Carmen Hawk collaborated with Target as part of their Go International Collection. The line was fun with a boho hippie bent. Earlier this year Target rereleased a few dresses from the line.

I wasn’t in the loop about this line then but ever since I heard about it a bit later I’ve been meaning to buy a piece via eBay. Last week I finally bought two pieces (super cheap!). I got the above Dobby Top and a very sweet corset dress that you will see in another post soon. It’s a bit sheer. I could have just wore a black bra underneath but instead I went with a cami. Then I added my black Bongo jeans, a belt from Dots, my trusty boots and a super cute necklace from Crystalline Dreams (also seen here). I really like the top. It’s thin and breathes. It has a flowy hem but I decided to make it look a bit more structured with the belt.

This is for the IFB Project #21: What’s your Favorite Style Decade?. At first I wasn’t going to participate because my style isn’t really defined. I enjoy a lot of different things and am all over the place. It’s pretty obvious that I will always love 90’s dresses though.

So here’s a quick look back at some of my recent 90’s duds.

It mentions the 90’s as “Flannel, doc Martens, denim, grunge”, which don’t get me wrong, I like but I’m going with the more feminine bent. Plus I got sick of flannel (for the most part) in 1995 (when I had like 3 rotating flannel shirts).

I’m mentioning 90s dresses so I’m including the

New York & Company gray v-neck ribbed sweater-thrifted, Miley Cyrus & Max Azria black draped pocket knit skirt-Walmart, Bongo floral leggings-Kmart


(Second clearer picture is to show texture. I recently adjusted the settings on my camera, so hopefully there won’t be any more out of focus or Myspace style shots in the future.)

I wore this the day after I went to a Halloween party so I’d already had my hair parted to the side for my flapper costume. I decided to go with it and wear it like that again. It looked kind of ’80s.

I was excited to wear this new sweater that I had just bought. I’ve been coveting some fitted sweaters this fall so I decided to hit up a thrift store and dig until I found some. I succeeded in finding a black cardigan and this gray pullover. I paired it with my Bongo leggings, also seen here. Then I threw this Miley Cyrus & Max Azria skirt over it that I picked up on sale at Walmart a while ago. It’s more of an awkward wear for someone with thighs (it has draped pockets over the sides) but I don’t care about fashion rules & what not.

The current IFB Project is Channel Your Inner Superhero so this seems like a good time to talk about the Red Badger.

When I turned 25 I decided to have a costume birthday party. My sister and I actually convinced almost everyone to dress up. It was so much fun.

I created my own superhero called the Red Badger for the occasion. It started when I spotted some really cute red boyshort panties that tied in the back while shopping at a department store. They screamed superhero. At the time I considered underwear a viable outfit choice.

I paired them with one of my favorite bra by Jezebel and some red heels. Then I ran around getting accessories such as fabric (just tied around my neck) as a cape, a red mask, hair dye, red fishnets and a birthday pin. I would have been done but spotted a mustache in Party City and decided that the Red Badger was definitely a transsexual superhero. Everyone loved playing with the mustache including the guys which I found hilarious, since they could grow one.

I had a wardrobe change.

Brian Molko of Placebo in Velvet Goldmine

My sister created her own superhero called the Purple Peacock. She paired a cute tank & dress shorts with fishnets, boots, a purple top hat, feather boa and fancy mask. I do believe that she was heavily influenced by Brian Molko in Velvet Goldmine.

Timmy/his creation

Something incredibly neat was that my friend Timmy made and gifted me with this doll dressed as me.
