My Style Challenge: A Sunday Office Holiday Party

Hooray, I got my camera fixed just in time for an office holiday party on a Sunday... so professional yet festive yet not too fancy... AHHH!

I wanted to wear something I wouldn't normally wear in to work, so I went with my super bright neon dress! That along with my faux fur scarf for some warm holiday fun. So professional - check, festive - check. Now I just needed casual it up a bit, I went with some flat boots and a denim jacket to keep my look relaxed.
I'm wearing: Neon lace dress labeled Audrey (similar), vintage Levi's jacket, Stuart Weitzman 50/50 boots, Jill Stuart purse, Mossimo scarf, Jessica Simpson hat from Nordstorm Rack. Jewelry includes BCBG bangles.
Happy holidays!

Inspiration Board: Winter Crop Top

There's snow and ice on the ground, but I have a hankering to wear a crop top!! I refuse to let Mother Nature get in my way, time to look for a little inspiration..

Inspiration Board: Winter Crop Top
Layers are the key! Sure your midriff will be cold while you run from your house to your car, but with a cardigan and coat over top, you'll barely notice a difference! I also like the idea of a long sleeved or sweater crop top - just make sure things don't get too bulky!

Shop tops and my look:

I've posted garter leggings once before, but they were red velvet and these are basic black! And they're only $38 at Nasty Gal!

Engaged To Be Engaged

My brains are going into my feet!
I've met the one!!*

* Pending continued relationship success.

So Comic Con Guy and I have been together for almost five months and have officially said, "I love you." As I've mentioned, being in love means something totally different once you're ready to make a serious commitment. To me it means: I see my future with you because I don't want to ever be without you. And, it turns out, Comic Con Guy feels the same way about love! Meaning we both have told each other we want our future to be with each other. So as you can imagine, our relationship has possibly hit ludicrous speed.

It's true, we are have discussed things like, "How many children do you want?" and "Do not propose to me at Comic Con 2014!" And, perhaps we are getting even more serious, talking about us moving in together next year and then getting engaged and then getting married the following year. And then of course two kids. I'm kinda amazed he hasn't run away screaming, hahahah.

Now don't panic, we're not running away and eloping. This would all be months away, after we have spent more time together dating. But, if things continue to goes as well as they have been, well..

It's funny how when you meet the right person, there's no doubt or hesitation or having to think about it. There's just excitement over what's to come!

Giving Tuesday & the USO

It's Giving Tuesday! Of course I have to promote the USO Wishbook. Did you read your kids a bed time story last night? Tell someone you loved them? Spent Thanksgiving with family or friends with delicious foodstuff?  Our troops and their families give up those special moments for us. Say thank you through the USO!


"Wait, they hate us cuz we're Muslims? I thought they hated us cuz we were hipsters!"

I love this video. I know there's been some controversy over it, but I love how these girls express themselves while still practicing their faith. I feel like Islam is a very foreign and kinda scary concept to many Americans, and I love how these girls show how fun and and every day they are.

Somewhere In America from Habib Yazdi on Vimeo.

UPDATE: Aww video was delated because apparently some dummies did not get permission to actually use the music. Here's an animated GIF from it to give you at least an idea:
