I've been wrestling with myself about the weird trend that is the clog. I've so confused myself about it. When I first heard of the clog coming back I thought it was the most awful, 50 year old woman comfort shoe being restyled for YA (young adult aka teens) 20somethings and beyond. I couldn't believe it! They all looked so awful. And then everyone started wearing them (well not people that I actually know, and no jcrew doesn't carry them (yet) but madewell the sister company does) but every fashion forward celebrity did. And then I was like, well I guess if I found the pair for me I'd be okay with it, plus they just seem comfy although I'm sure many are not. THEN I was looking on anthro's site and saw they had a whole category dedicated the clogs. really, a whole category. And I suppose it doesn't really surprise me that they sell them but having a whole category. I guess the clog is here and here to stay for sometime. But don't worry I haven't found a pair worthy for these feet. Besides there are shoes, clothes, accessories much MUCH higher on my list of wants than a clog.

and yes, this was post worthy. also, I saw a lot of post worthy items on anthro's site, but I'm really working to steer clear of doing things that might tempt me to spend money on not groceries. (and yes, I realize that I was looking at their website, but you know, baby steps. PLUS I did not try on a very, super, adorable skirt that got returned to work today)

Halloween is coming!!

So Halloween is fast approaching and I've decided I'm going to be something different than tinkerbell. So I've been searching online hoping to find something that sparks my eye. Plus, I have to keep in mind an outfit for Jason because I like it when we can dress as a couple. yes, I am that cheesy girlfriend.

I am super picky though. I refuse to be something ugly or gross. I don't know, I just have this thing where I have to be as cute as I can all the time, which includes halloween. I know it's silly because I'll only be around friends and blah blah blah, but that's just some complex thing that I have. We all have issues, this is one of mine.

Anyway, back to Halloween...I've been liking the idea of dressing up as flappers. It'd be easy for him, just a suit, flashy tie and maybe a fedora-type hat if we could find a cheap one. I'd just have to find a dress for me. Target has a few to choose from that aren't too bad. Then I was thinking we could do 50s and that might be fun. It'd be easy for him, some jeans rolled up a bit, white tee tucked in, a pack of cards rolled up in his sleeve, you know to look like a pack of cigs. anyway. those are my thoughts for now. I'll prob head over to Joanns tomo to see if I can get a pattern for a flapper dress or poodle skirt for cheaper than target. Mom is amazing with a sewing machine and I'm pretty sure she'd help me out there.

Opinions? what are you dressing up as for Halloween??

new discovery, maybe best yet?

Marilee clued me in to this website, and I'm pretty sure my life is a LOT better having found this site, especially since I've been having bunny/doggie withdrawals lately. Go here for a daily bunny photo!!!

this is prob my fav i've seen on the site, second is prob the one with the bunny sitting in a high chair. too cute. it'll be really hard on saturday when i go to the state fair to not bring one home.
