Spice Up Your Life

First of all, I’d just like to start out by saying, “All hail Queen Victoria!”

Listen, when it comes to reading my mind, Target is approaching Carnac the Magnificent levels of greatness. Dinosaur cookie jars, cute AF doormats, adorable stationary, a shoe section that won’t quit (taking money out of my bank account)? I mean come, on. Let me tell you, the number of times a friend has texted me from the aisles of Bullseye land and said, “I saw this and thought of you” is not small (and I am not mad about it). So when I heard that the keepers of my pocketbook were *finally* teaming up with the one and only Posh Spice, I said, “Stop right there, thank you very much” (and they were like, “Hey you, always on the run – gotta slow it down baby, gotta have some fun” obviously). I’ve been a fan of Victoria Beckham’s fashion line for years. Her collection’s smart sophistication and clean graphic lines always speak to my soul, and I’ve gotta say her collaboration with Target is all I hoped it would be and then some. Between the beautiful brights and the stark black and whites, it’s a collection that feels tailor-made for little ol’ me and I knew that if I only managed to snag one piece it absolutely had to be this one. I mean, it’s basically me in dress form, guys. Quite frankly, it’s creepy and it’s cutesy and all together spooky how this dress makes all of my Wednesday Addams dreams come true (with wasically wabbits on the collar? UGH. SO FRIGGING CUTE). Sure, it also comes in a charming millennial blush pink, but for me? It’s go Bunnicula or go home.

You Reap What You Sew

A story for you all: Once upon a time, I went to LOFT in search of something perfect to wear to my birthday celebration a few weeks ago. While browsing through all of the super cute spring options, my eyes fell upon this insanely gorgeous jumpsuit. As someone who only recently found a jumpsuit that actually fit (after like A YEAR of searching, whatever), I did not have high hopes. Those hopes fell even lower when I discovered the only option in the store was like 5 sizes too big and my party was that night!

So, what is a girl to do? Well if you are this girl, you try the jumpsuit on, realize that if the sleeves were brought in it just might work, and then call your dad. Because, amongst my father’s seemingly innumerable talents and skills, he can actually sew! So, being the hero that he is, he rushes to my house and hems my jumpsuit while I am getting ready, finishing just in time for me to walk out the door looking like a million bucks.

The moral of this story? My dad is better than your dad (and could probably beat him up too!). But also, don’t let yourself get too obsessed with size and fit because sometimes with just the thread of a needle (and someone who loves you that can sew), you can take an item from unwearable to tailored perfectly just for you.
