A little while ago, I was invited to a fashion show called #FusedRI. Last night was the black & gold event, and this is what I wore. I think for the first time ever, I’m wearing a head-to-toe Nasty Gal outfit. I loved the combination of the feather jacket with the gold dress so much, and I’ve been having so much trouble not wanting to pair these awesome pumps with everything.

When I first saw the jacket, I thought it was faux fur but it ended up being made of feathers. They kind of drift all over the place but I seriously don’t think I could’ve found a better shape in a jacket. Love this thing and can’t wait to wear it out some more. (It might make an NYE appearance depending on the weather!)

The event was a bustling production with everything from fashion by local designers to belly dancers and even a contortionist (!!). I think my favorite part was that it was full of supportive family and friends of the show’s producers, performers, and models. I love that kind of stuff so much.

Unfortunately my photos of the event were not that great but keep a look out on Instagram to see what I could salvage. Thank you to Bianca, the designer behind Clothes Horse Clothing (and the show!) for the invitation!

Ahh, it’s been so long since I’ve done a wishlist post but I obviously have to do one for Christmas. It was a little hard to think of some things I want for this year (sometimes I had to ask myself, “Do I really actually like that or am I placing it there just for the post?”). But anyway here are things I’ve been looking at for a while and will probably end up getting for myself eventually (I’m already guilty of crossing the Dauville Pebble Dish off the list if you couldn’t tell). Simple black and white clothing, gold accents for the home, and a makeup palette with everything I need for on the go.

I’ve been waiting on doing this post for ages! I have had these old photos of me just sitting around until I got the AA floral print crop top. When I did finally get it, and I wore this outfit before (why own it if you can’t repeat it?), I had 4 hours of sleep and was busy too busy to document it because of my LMNT exhibition.

My 90s flower outfits were sooooo good. I had so many of them, usually as matching sets. I think my favorite was probably this one with an orange daisy one coming as a close second. I’d totally wear them now and let’s think about how they’d probably still fit because it looks like my clothes now are the same exact size.

Wasn’t I so cute?? Ahhh, especially that last photo–a Barney-became-real-life???-induced black (under my) eye. (I ran away screaming into a chair.)

Anyway, this was an outfit I threw on in Miami last week so that I could enjoy the last of my sun before heading back to Rhode Island. Had a nice dinner with my friend Vanessa at The DRB. Miss it all already.
