Recently, as I’ve mentioned, I bought some pieces from the now defunct Jovovich-Hawk for Target line from eBay. The other pieces were so cute that I had to get the polka dot babydoll dress as well. This particular item was from the Go International re-release earlier this year. It’s so cute and comfy. If you ever end up picking one up on eBay you can size down a size cuz it’s so billowy.

I was trying to find a way to make it look a little more fitted but it was not flattering with any of my belts. Since it was jacket weather on that particular day I was able to just throw my old trusty bomber over it. Apparently the Miley Cyrus Walmart line that it’s from has now completely folded so I am going to be SOL in the future. I have such an attachment to this jacket that I’m feeling a bit like John Cusack at the moment. The same can be said about the boots that I wore with it.

I actually wanted to wear knee high boots that day but when I dug out my two pairs they were super worn out. I was hoping to do a DIY project with them but all of the craft stores and craft sections of stores around here are apparently gone. I added my sweater leggings which kept the slight chill off.

These photos are from the release of the higher end line and I believe that the dress that Milla is wearing is from her original line (and most likely the inspiration for the Target relese).

This post is for the IFB Project #25: Blogger Holiday Party. I guess that I sort of only understood half of the idea. I was thinking that it was about what we wear on Christmas day. Oops, no matter. What I would wear to a Christmas party is the Santa dress in the second half of the post (that’s a par-tay, par-tay type of party, I don’t go to office parties). I reserve my sequins for New Year’s.

On other family holidays I usually like to put together a classier outfit of a dress and heels. However on Christmas my family is all about Christmas sweaters or tees. We also have a thing for PJs (whether holiday related or not). In fact in recent years it seems like many of us are exchanging PJs as gifts, and sometimes running right out to change into them before we take more photos. We also love silly Santa hats and reindeer ears. My sister appears with me in both photos. I know that I have a very silly photo of us with our folks in which all of us are wearing insane headgear but I’m unable to locate it.

Yes, I leant her the skirt. It's quite important to own many costumes, xd.

Now when I happen to party I go with the sexy Mrs. Santa dress or skirt. In fact I shall be donning this over the upcoming weekend.

P.S. We are not ironic. We are joyful. (I gave up irony when I graduated from high school. I’m no hipster.)

I’d like to introduce you to CBT’s Closet. They sell incredibly fun jewelry. You can also shop their site NB’s Closet which offers a lot of customized options.

CBT’s Closet sent me a package full of awesome goodies which included a laser cut Barbie Necklace, Heart Knuckles necklace and a ring. They were packaged nicely in pink wrapping paper with a sticker and business card.

Yesterday I incorporated the awesome Barbie necklace into my outfit. I was tempted to go with an obvious Barbie look, possibly head to to pink. I held back a bit though. I paired a cute dressy tube top and pink jeans from Dots with my recently thrifted cardigan (bought the same day as my pullover). Instead of my very Barbie style pointy pink heels I opted for these ballet flats that I thrifted a while back for an upcoming photo set.

I ended up feeling very Marilyn Monroe sexy. It was a bit unusual for me because I actually showed cleavage.

I received quite a few compliments and inquiries on where I bought my necklace. So it would be a great gift for the fun young women in your life this season. I also really dig all of the below items. I mean Nintendo and taco rings, how super fun. They are very affordable too, many necklaces are $15 or less and rings start at $5. They are available in a wide variety of colors as well.

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.

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.
