5 sweet skull tops

If you've seen my paintings, or my house, you already know I like skulls. Today's the day this obsession is most acceptable, Halloween! So for the occasion, I found 5 really adorable and girly (and not at all scary) skull tops for you to rock year round!

frankenstorm Sandy

So apparently DelMarVa is going to get slammed with a crazy frankenstorm, as they are calling it, late this weekend. Awesome. If you remember last year, we had our first icky, sleety, snowstorm on Halloween, this year, a hurricane. Since when do we get hurricanes at the end of October, so late in the season that it's going to hit a Nor'easter and just pour all over the east coast. And people refuse to believe in "climate change"...Seriously? Also, it's called global warming; where is Gore when we need him?

Today's list: Splendid maxi dress, Free People plaid crop shirt, Chloe Paraty bag

red lips

Ladies, if you don't have at least one red lipstick that flatters you, get on that. My favorites are from Kat von D's line at Sephora. They are super pigmented and striking, and maybe a little loud compared to something you'd find by Lancome or whatever and definitely cheaper than one from YSL or Dior. My holy grail is Underage Red; it's pinky and cool toned, but there's a bunch in her line that rock.

Today's list: tart leopard maxi skirt, gap drop sleeved hoodie, coconuts boots, aridza bross bag, and kat von d adora lipstick

The case for leggings

The case for leggings: 20 reasons leggings are amazing
1. don't drag and get wet in the rain
2. feel like a bum without looking like one, much more chic than sweats
3. softer and stretchier than jeans
4. can be worn straight to yoga or work out
5. come in s, m, l sizes no trying to guess whether you're still a 27 or have gone up to 28
6. hide unshaven legs!
7. warmer than tights
8. show off sexy legs shape
9. wear them with flats or heels, no need to tailor these babies
10. make great pjs
11. anything 80s is awesome again
12. no one can tell whether you're wearing $10 leggings from target or $200 leggings from NM
13. can be worn all seasons
14. never too bulky to fit in your favorite boots
15. no need for a belt
16. come in every color/print you can think of
17. styles for all ages
18. help suck in and flatten bellies or butts
19. for travel they are easy to roll up and throw in a suitcase
20. the nostalgia of rocking hot pink leggings and giant t-shirts and scrunchies in elementary school

asymmetry |āˈsimitrē|
noun ( pl. asymmetries )
lack of equality or equivalence between parts or aspects of something; lack of symmetry.
I super heart this sweater's strange balance, one side's bottom hem is longer and dolman shaped and the opposite's sleeve is longer but fitted.

Today's list: Splendid maxi dress, Helmut Lang asymmetrical sweater, Toms vegan pewter shoes, Aridza Bross fringe bag, Elizabeth and James sunglasses
