Pierrot Halloween Costume, Mostly Homemade

Earlier this week I spoke about what I was going to be for Halloween. Pierrot, the 17th century clown, but obviously, modernized. I’m hosting a carnival themed Halloween party for toddlers, so of course I wanted to have a comfortable, yet fun costume to wear for the day. So after looking through all the images of clowns on Pinterest, I …

Halloween Inspiration: Pierrot the Clown


Clowns pretty much scare everyone. The scary makeup. The enormous feet. The nose that honks. The Stephen King books. I pretty much get nightmares every time I see a clown. So what makes a better Halloween costume than that of a clown? Ok, there are several, like sexy jellyfish, or sexy Diet Coke, but I happen to be hosting a carnival …

Wishing for Fall

So yeah, I’m basically wearing things I’ve owned forever. A lot of it is that I still have boxes of clothes from before I was pregnant, that between the pregnancy and the getting back to my pre-pregnancy body it’s been a few years, and a continent away.

Cropped so they show a little skin between while wearing ankle boots. I’ve also been keeping things simple, color-wise, but experimenting with silhouettes. Earlier this year, I noticed …

Harem Pants: The Slow-Burn Trend

  I remember way back in 2008, I found this pair of harem pants at a flea market. Excited about them, I posted them on this blog saying that one should be careful to mix your vintage (looks) or you’ll look like you’re in a time warp. Well, the harem pant has indeed had quite a few updates from the …

How to Wear Sweatpants Without Looking Like You Gave Up on Life

  Hey there. Apologies for the brief absence. Jasper had a million sicknesses back to back… roseola, pneumonia, bronchitis, and a suspected inhaled green pea. Then we decided it was time to buy a home. So there is that, which I’ll talk about another time. Needless to say, I’ve fallen off the radar in several parts of my life. I’m …
