Website Wednesdays: Nasty Gal

The website I’m featuring this week is Nasty Gal. I adore the style of clothing, and I hadn’t heard about this site until recently. I could go crazy online shopping here. Enjoy!!

$18.00 @ Nasty Gal

I LOVE LOVE LOVE rings. They’re an easy way to accessorize, and I much prefer them over bracelets. Bracelets always get in my way, but if I could wear rings on every finger every day. Okay…maybe not every finger. But you get the point. I love the double finger rings, too. Slightly obsessed.

$22.00 @ Nasty Gal

Oh what do you know!? Another double finger ring… surprising right?

$28.00 @ Nasty Gal

AH!! I forgot how much I loved this ring. I love a good rock. Even though science is notttt my thing, I always enjoy geology because there are so many beautiful rocks… I know, what a nerd. But seriously. You can make some sick looking jewelry out of natural stones. Who knew?

$30.00 @ Nasty Gal

We all should know by now that I love a good tank. And the color gray. Look! We found two things I love in one top. BOOM!

$48.00 @ Nasty Gal

I love the new take on a classic favorite. I always love a good plaid flannel, but this sort of switches it up and makes it more interesting. I love the bare shoulders and the tie. I’m drooling. Want. Need. Must have. Goodness, no wonder I’m so broke.

$58.00 @ Nasty Gal

TRIBAL PRINT<3 Plus a gray sweatshirt. What an easy, cute look. Gawwwww.

$60.00 @ Nasty Gal

Wow, I should probably try to brighten my color palate at some point. Black, white, gray…. more tribal. I must be very predictable. But I still love this top.

$68.00 @ Nasty Gal

SURPRISE! MORE GRAY!!! Who’d have thought!? But it looks so comfy. And it seriously is just my style. I must add that I love her bag. Shit.

 

This is how I get myself into trouble. xoxoxooo

A Tiny Circus, Fabulous Find

Heyyyy all! I’m starting a new category for posts called “Fabulous Finds.” It’ll be anywhere I find deals or cute stuff, that I want to share with ya’ll!

Today’s post is about Brittney Austin, and the handmade accessories she makes for her company called A Tiny Circus.

She got started in making accessories for her daughter, because she had a bald baby head and she wanted to give her some “OOMPH!” So she started making headbands with detachable and interchangeable flowers and bows. But when she realized that being a mom means having no time for her own hair, she started making adult friendly accessories as well.

For now, she makes flower clips, bows, feather headbands, cotton headbands, etc. She makes everything to be versatile enough for girls of all ages. She’s also in the beginning stages of making jewelry and custom tee shirts and onesies. Let’s just say I’m super excited!

She gets her ideas and inspiration from vintage clothing, especially from the 20’s and 40’s. She loves pearls, feathers, roses, and simple cotton prints. Her statement through her accessories is “Feminine and Classy,” which is something I find to go really well with my own personal style.

The name “A Tiny Circus” stems from what she describes as the happy chaos that life brings. I really love the name, because it’s so easy for everyone to relate to; we all have a little bit, or a lotttt, of craziness going on in our lives, so just embrace it for what it is, LIFE.

Brittney’s favorite accessory is the purple feather headband that can be found on her Etsy site, because of its boldness, and because it can give anyone’s boring hair some personality.

Ordering process takes place on her Etsy account as well, which can be found by clicking here. She’s always taking custom orders. She can also be contacted through facebook here.

Here is some of her fabulous work!

Feathers everywhere!

I’ve been obsessed with feathers for a very long time. I’ve always loved what they symbolize. There’s a lot of different meanings, however, my favorites are “flight,” and “new beginnings.”

Right now, in my life, it’s a period of transition. The word flight means a lot to me, just because I feel like now is when I’m taking off. I’m starting fresh; just moved into a new house, started school again, and started a new job. I also started this blog, so it’s a big time for me. The term “flight” really hits home. But enough about me!!

Feathers were really in this summer, and I have a feeling they’re not going out of style soon. Feathers have been printed all over clothing articles, appeared in hair styles, and were incorporated into accessories. Let’s just say I’m obsessed!!

Here’s a few feather inspired articles that I love!:

$8.50 @ Wetseal

I don’t shop at Wetseal very often, but sometimes I’ll find something that I must have. The way I shop issss if I like something, I buy it (which is part of my problem). But at Wetseal, they usually have stuff on the cheaper side. Always a plus.

$98.00 @ Nordstrom

This shirt is adorable, but I’m not sure I could bring myself to spend that much on a top. Maybe one day!

$12.99 @ Modcloth

Modcloth is one of my absolute favorite places to shop. They have a bunch of vintage inspired clothing. I love their dresses, and shoes. They also have the cutest stuff for apartments.

$14.99 @ Modcloth

Another Modcloth find… I love the double ring thing. I have a ton!!

$14.00 @ Buckle

Loveee this necklace. Black, of course, but it would be super cute with a gray, loose fitting top.

$134.99 @ Modcloth

This dress is to dieee for. Again from Modcloth. A little on the pricey side, but Modcloth carries higher quality clothing, so purchases from there can be investment pieces. A lot of their stuff is more on the mature side as well, so it’d be perfect for work.

$26.00 @ Nordstrom

Hair clips. With feathers. I’m obsessed.

This belt would be adorable to make any outfit a little more interesting. I love peacock feathers, and there’s a lot you could do with this belt!

I’m not saying farewell to the feather trend any time soon.
