Bright Colors on Gloomy Days

This winter has been weirdly wet and rainy. The few normal winter days have been bitterly cold. I’ve been so tired of dark drab colors, so a couples weeks ago I bought a ton of bright sunny sweaters from the thrift store.
Believe me, I would do anything to get out of those icky weather blues. These sweaters really helped to brighten my day.

Whats to Come on Lady Emmy

I’ve been working on a couple projects so I thought I would include you all and tell you whats to come:)

1. I’m doing a Culture Study Series. I’ve always been really interested in different cultures and this is my way of, not only learning more about them, but also sharing the knowledge:). I’ve already started on the first Culture Study, Vietnam.

2. I’m thinking of doing a post or two about trying the looks on Beautifully Invisible’s post on Jack Sparrow…. I think it could get interesting:).

3. I’m also, wanting to do the photography challenge I spotted on Metal and Mud. Looks like fun, and its a way for me to get back into photography.

I think those are all the new features that are coming soon.. However, I do wanna start adding more art to my blog:)

Always,

Wednesday Thoughts

Well lets start from the top, ahem..

1. I live in South-western Ohio, and we’ve been having tornado scares all week..eek! The states have been hit all over this season and I hope all are doing ok:)

not very fun 😦 ^^^^^

2nd. My car has been broken.. for the past 3 weeks! We just got it up and running, however, I now realize my whole life revolves around a dumb vehicle. Because of this I am thinking about getting something newer than my 04′ Chevy Cavalier. I know, I know. It’s not that old of a car. But, it has well over 100,000 miles on it and the wear and tear is really catching up to it.. sigh.

My boyfriend really wants a Chevy Cruze

I don’t really care too much; I just want something dependable and great on gas. ( and I mean phenomenal on gas).

Any Ideas??

3rd: I’m kind of in love with this post from Chic N Cheap Living, about staying young.

I think its very inspiring:)

4th: Jack Sparrow: A Fashion Icon

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this post on Beautifully Invisible! I mean, sure Johnny Depp is hot and hilarious in the Pirates series, but I was puzzled at first about this idea of taking fashion pointers from his character, Jack Sparrow. After reading, however, I have no idea why I hadn’t noticed it before. Check this article out, it’s a great read:)

5. Ok so, I’ll be honest, I never got into Glee. I really wasnt a fan. But last night, I got sucked into watching the finale.

I must say, between the abundance of musical numbers and the bits of drama, I may be hooked. (Im renting the rest of the season:))

What’d you think of the finale??

Well, that’s all folks:)

PS-My thoughts for the evening might have included the Idol results but I stopped caring once James was gone!

What I’m In Love With This Week

I just started really browsing Blog Lovin, and I definitely decided I’m a fan:)

These are some post from fellow bloggers that I love from this week:

1. Igor + Andre’

Artist Danny Roberts Sketch of DNA Model Ali Michael & hardy in Teen Vogue March 2007 Editorial called Made in Japan Photographed by Nick Haymes

Artist: Danny Roberts

This man is amazing! All of his work is just beautiful. I actually used to paint and sketch but with life’s hectic schedule and lack of inspiration, I definitely fell off the wagon, but this blog motivated me to get back on. Which is why Igor + Andre’  was my #1 favorite of the week:)

Plus, there’s a Igor + Andre’ shop!! Do your self a favor and check Danny out:)

2. Discovering Elegance

I love this outfit post by Chelle Morgan. The look just speaks spring and I love it:) Check this girl out , she definitely has a style both elegant and perfectly feminine.

3. Denim on Denim

I love this look I found on Reserverade Fashion.

4. Designer Thursday on Chic n Cheap Living

This week Chic n Cheap featured Rachel Zoe (fall 2011) I love the suits and dresses. It definitely had a 70’s twist to it and this look was my favorite:

Be sure the check out Chic n Cheap for style tips for body and home:)

5. Silver Ridge Studio

ok so technically this is a shop.. but ive been obsessing with this lovely store since I entered a contest, on Chic n Cheap, to win a piece from it.

Cate Parr is an amazing water-color artist and her work is truly wonderful.

This one is my absolute favorite:

Watercolor Fashion Illustration Print  C est Magique

Go check out her shop, her work is something any home would be lucky to have. So be sure to enter the contest!

6. Last but not least, Osborn Shoes

I found a window into the Osborn Design world on Made to Travel.

Needless to say, I fell in love:). These are a bit on the pricey side, but a girl can dream!

Check out Osborn here. And be sure to check out Jamillah at Made to Travel for pointers on awesome brands, trends and style.

Ok, so that was my list of must see sites for the week, I loved them and I hope you do too:)

im thinking of a new hair style

The last time I changed my hair style was over a year ago. I went from changing it every couple of months to na-da for 17months! But I’ve really been considering something new for spring/summer. Here are just some ideas. I really like Adele’s style and color in these.

Watcha think??

Transfering my style:)

I’m sooo tired of my look. I feel very boring and dull, so I am changing it up. I am transforming my look. 🙂
First things first: getting together all the peices I already have and just baught. I’ve got another week before payday so I can’t just run to the mall and buy everything I see, so I gotta use what I got. Plus there are tons of items I really could incorporate into my style but I never take the time to get creative.
Next: I’m forcing myself to wear something different every day for 20 days(starting tomorrow). I have to step up the creativity since I can’t wear an outfit I’ve worn before. Plus, no matter wat I have to blog about it, so I can see the progress:-)
Hopefully I succeed and my look is transformed!
We will see as I add to my wardrobe 🙂
