DSC_1063yes_FotoreditreduxYesterday was a happy day. My Nicolette Mason for ModCloth order showed up at my door, and I couldn’t have been more thrilled! I picked three pieces, two of which I’m wearing in this outfit. Check out this video of Nicolette and her “girl gang” of fashion bloggers modeling some great outfits from the collection. While I’m drooling over the party dresses, I decided to choose pieces that I would wear the most often. And, of course, I had to get this coat.

DSC_1068yes_FotoreditreduxSince I started shopping at ModCloth, my wardrobe is starting to fill up with retro clothing. Before then, retro really wasn’t an option for me because I couldn’t find anything of that style in my size. I’m so glad they along with Pin Up Girl Clothing and Gwynnie Bee carry clothes reminiscent of the ’50s and ’60s , and through my blogging buds of all sizes, I was able to find them. I mean, I’m wearing freakin’ Peter Pan collar, and I think that’s awesome! The detail in the skirt is adorable, too. The design mimics knitted cables. I still say I’m going to knit a skirt myself from this pattern from Knitty, but the one I’m wearing here will hold me over until that happens. Also, the fabric is stretchy and soft, and even though it’s short, the cut doesn’t leave me feeling totally exposed.

How about you all? Have you worn anything from ModCloth’s Nicolette Mason collection? Let me know in the comments!

This outfit has brought some cuteness into my life. It reminds me a little bit of Clueless, and I’m all for that. Thanks for visiting me today, and I’m outie!

Yep. It’s my birthday! I have no big plans for today other than to take it easy, which is a-okay with me. I tend to do all of my partying on so-called ordinary days, and it’s usually impromptu and for no reason at all. I might eat cake, though. Haha, “might”–that’s funny. Anyhoo, here are some things that currently put me in a celebratory mood:

I know they announced this a while back, but I’m so stoked about the ModCloth/Nicolette Mason collab, I can’t wait until Rocktober! Go to Nicolette’s blog to see all of the cute dresses, skirts, and tops–and you gotta check out the pink trench coat! Go look now! C’mon…I’ll wait.

Cool! You’re back! Neat, right?

Beauty

You can’t have a birthday without a little confetti! Just when I was getting the hang of the cat-eye, the Beauty Department steps it up with this tutorial. Maybe it’s the perfect excuse to try those colorful Lime Crime liners I’ve been eye-ing.

I’ve made no secrets that poppies are my jam. Why not smell like a poppy? Coach’s Poppy fragrances are lovely in every incarnation. I got a bottle as a Christmas gift, and I’m still in love.

Books

To be honest, I was unaware of Nasty Gal before I started blogging. When I saw this book cover popping up here and there all over Instagram, I was #curious. I’m in the middle of reading #GIRLBOSS right now, and so far it’s #AWESOME! Sophia, a once self-professed “crust punk,” built her own fashion empire with some vintage clothes, hard work, and street smarts. Part motivational, part cautionary tale, this book proves you don’t have to be perfect to be successful. Like it or not, birthdays are reflective, and lately I’m finding myself at a crossroads in the best way possible. After going through a some not-so-fun years, following my gut to pursue blogging has been a wonderful education that I’ve been able to bring into other aspects of my life, including doing some fun stuff at my day job where I’m dabbling more and more in social media and marketing–which I would have been pretty ill-informed about had I not messed up at previous jobs only try it again for Super Style Me. It seems strange to call someone even younger than I am wise, but Sophia is that and more. Her story and advice help me feel I’m going in the right direction with this new venture. There’s much to learn, but that’s okay. I’ll figure it out just as she did. And, every bad experience, bad decision, and bad day just bring you one step closer to something much, much better.

Music

I included this album on my birthday favorites because it contains so many hidden “presents,” but don’t take it from me–here’s a video from Jack to tell you all about it:

So cool! Here’s my own low-quality video of the locked groove and angel hologram. Yes, the angel is upside-down. She’s break-dancing:

P.S. The music is actually good! You didn’t think they’d put in all these bells and whistles and forget about the songs? If you did, you don’t know Jack 😉

 

And this:

I’m so glad this is back in stock today and in my size, but, really, dinosaur print on my birthday? That’s not nice, ModCloth!

 

Thanks to you all for stopping by! Celebrate anything you want today!
