{Cream scarf: Hollister Co.}

{Glasses: Warby Parker}
{Cross-body bag: Urban Outfitters}
{Boots: Steve Madden}

If someone were to ask me what my standard everyday outfit would be, this would probably be it. Seattle raised me well, you guys. Check out those layers and that Starbucks red cup. Actually every time, we post an outfit post, I feel like I have a funny story about several of the pieces. First off, I’ve had these Steve Madden boots since college and the heels are not completely falling apart, but on its way there. The heels have been worn down, but not evenly so when I walk I feel like I am lopsided. I’ve had this Hollister scarf since middle school and to this day, I still consider it a regular staple. Bree needed a Christmas tree for the holidays so I tagged along to help her catch the tree when she “sawed the bitch down.” (Her words not mine) The Christmas tree farm is no joke. There’s so many. It’s in the middle of nowhere and it’s freezing out there. I suppose I was also there to act as a ruler as she wanted one that was just around my height.

Your 2013 Holiday Party Dress

Banana Republic Seamed Ponte Fit and Flare V-Neck Dress – $130

It’s that time of the year! For the first time ever, I’m attending a holiday party for my company and this time – it won’t be in some sketchy dive bar in the middle of nowhere. I can toss that horrible, ugly, and itchy Christmas sweater aside and put on my favorite new dress for the season. Of course, I don’t own one yet, but that’s why we’re on the hunt! I actually helped a co-worker of mine find her dress before I found one and it looks fabulous. Job well done. Now, here are some options for both you and I!

Sachin + Babi Sequin Cutout Dress – $188

earwarmer

Now normally, I would think that ear warmers were a little silly. Pre-2011, I would have thought so, but they are just too darling that I couldn’t stay away. I ordered myself a new pair this year after losing mine back in 2011. I’ve sort of been scarred ever since. I was at Deck the Hall Ball with Kevin when him and I decided that we didn’t care too much for Mumford & Sons (sorry, guys!) so we up and left and when I got too warm during the show I took off my gray ear warmers and snuggled them into my seat. I hate when stuff like that happens. Anyways, these ear warmers fit so snug and are pretty inexpensive from Urban Outfitters. If you want to look like twins or something, check them out here.

Shopping Hack of the Day:

Readers,

I was reminded of a very important shopping hack today that I haven’t been taking advantage of. I’m not really big on Halloween, but since we’re having some major milestones this year, I decided I should probably get more into the spirit. I saw a lace mask that I wanted  at Urban Outfitters and when I was about to make the purchase last night – realized that the shipping was $22 for when I needed it to arrive.

… That’s almost as much as the mask itself.

I called a nearby store to see if it was available there and of course, it wasn’t. So I asked if I could make the purchase through them over the phone and had my day made when the other person on the line told me I could order it on the phone through the store without shipping costs!

BOOM. Use your resources. Hack online shopping. The tech of Silicon Valley is rubbing off on me.

The Closet: July 2013

DV by Dolce Vita ‘Dania’ Sandal – $26.23

By the looks of this month’s closet collection, you would think that we were already gearing up for fall! That, however, just isn’t true. I’ve noticed recently that while out shopping, I’ve been indulging in pieces that tend to be on the more neutral side – whites, creams, grays, and blacks. I’ve always been a fan of the classic style, but one thing is for sure – I definitely don’t get dressed up as much as I did in college. Back then,  bold and bright pieces were my trademark, but these days – I’m not really dressing for anyone else other than myself and I’m not meeting new people every single day so getting dressed in the morning has become simplified. With that, here are my picks for July!

Yow Yow! Promo Day

1

We’re baaaaaaack!

Veronica and I spent the (cold!) morning working on a new promo video for Yow Yow and we figured since we had the space helmet and all, why not have a throwback moment? Kevin actually bought this space helmet for me for my birthday so it’s all mine and has no traces of John Conway, paint, or Senior Streak! This is my first time wearing this outfit and I actually debated over the shoes for a couple minutes this morning while getting ready, but opted for these because I knew we’d be walking around town and I wanted something that I would feel comfortable dancing in.

A Roundup of Smaller Music Festivals 2013

At Yow Yow! we try to cover some of the larger festivals both across the country and even globally, but with so many festivals occurring and popping up every year, it can be hard to make sure all of them get their attention here on the blog. Luckily for us, the Urban Outfitters blog has got our back. Here are just a few of the lesser publicized festivals going on this year in cities across the country along with their lineups and respective posters.

Staring At Stars Macrame Tank Dress

Before we begin, I must admit that I almost always never go shopping two days in a row. In fact, I’ve been a savvy spender lately that I really only go shopping once a month. However, when birthday week arrives, all bets are off! This purchase was a complete accident I swear. We returned to Urban Outfitters on Sunday so that Kevin could make an exchange. I saw this dress on Saturday,  but didn’t think much of it because I had already picked out a dress for my birthday, but believing there was no harm in trying it on (wrong the harm is actually done to your wallet) – I took it with me to the dressing room and fell in love with it.

Which dress will I wear out for my birthday celebration?!

And in case you all were wondering…the other contender is:

Pretty Little Liars Annotations

Happy Pretty Little Liars Tuesday y’all!

The Urban Outfitters blog introduced me to a fetching new Tumblr yesterday called Pretty Little Liars Annotations and if you’re an avid fan like myself, then you will find every little bit of this humorous. I just went through 7 pages without even blinking and couldn’t explain to Kevin why I was snickering. He wouldn’t find it funny.

Enjoy wasting your time here.
