60% of the time it works every time.

I have been accused as of late of being a teensy bit negative, bitter, cranky, hateful, and downright unpleasant to be around. Subsequently I have challenged myself to frequently point out thing that I don't just like, I freaking love. Like, could write sonnets about. The decision has been made (by me) to post at least once a week on a highlight in my life. Something that I love so much it can't help but make me happy. More than just silly material things, but sometimes yeah, that's just what I'm gonna talk about.

For my first attempt I have selected one of my very favorite movies. Anchorman The Ron Burgundy Story. No matter how miserable I am this movie can make me laugh. I decided it would be a lot of fun to look up awesome stuff that has been inspired by Anchorman. I mean how can you not be inspired by a guy that shoots fire out of his flute.
1Why Don't you go back to your home on Whore Island Needlepoint by KatieKutthroat
2 Stay Classy Pencils by Earmark
3 Ron Burgundy Poster by claudiavarosio
4 Tits McGee Scrabble tile rack by GamerGirlz
5 Kind of a Big Deal print by Addigaledesigns

The fashion in this movie is... very 70's. VERY. But Veronica Corningstone looks so amazing is her suits (both power and lounge) I thought I would shop for her.
1 Diane VonFurstenburg Suit
2 Pale Tweed wool suit
3 Striped Jacket Set
4 Green Sleeveless Jumper
5 Red Blazer
And of course, I can't talk about inspiration without plugging my own stuff for a second. My Stay Classy bracelet helps you do just that. I like to believe Miss Corningstone would love to have this grace her wrist.

Well this concludes our first edition of Stuff I Don't Hate. OK! Until Next time.
Stay Classy,

Last Thursday night...

...We had a family reunion. The usual suspects raided their closets (or made a corset and full bustle skirt in 24 hours) to hit the Harry Potter movie premier. As per usual we leaned toward the Baddies (they are just sooooo much more fun!). Brittany was set on Narsissa Malfoy so we kinda fell in around her. Richard opted for Lucius Malfoy. Alicia (my lil sister) made her second round as Bellatrix LeStrange, and her first time seeing Potter with us as a group. She's been at school. I picked the only remaining option; Andromeda Tonks. Ok. So if you don't Read Harry Potter you may be a little lost. How are these characters connected? Why was Andromeda my "Only option"? Well, I'm glad you asked.

These three are the Black sisters. Each one is married(Narsissa to Lucious) and two of which are considered villains. Andromeda, not so much. Anyway, we hit the theater loud and late. Mayhem ensued.
What the hell?
Get that out of your mouth.
Her pennant says GO VOLDY! A joke from this girls art. Makani. Awesome hilarious stuff.
We frequently refer to Andromeda as the useless sister. Her Role in the books was to give birth to Tonks. I prefer to assume she was interesting and had a great sense of humor.

We had a fantastic time. We all stayed out too late and were completely exhausted the next day, but hey, there is only one more chance!

Harry Pottah!

Tonight I give JK ten more of my hard earned dollars. I hate you JK.
Hopefully I will have more to post about over the weekend. You can read about my antics last time we went to a HP movie HERE.

Until then,

Old Photos

I found these going though my pictures the other day, and I thought I would post them before I decided I didn't like them anymore. I have got to be better about blogging! I don't dislike it. I just hate editing photos. But here these were, all ready to go, and I forgot about them. Ah well. Better late then never. I have several shoots that I need to get up. (Yes, Halloween will be up soon. I need to retrieve the photos from my friend. Same with my vacation)

I really like this outfit, and wore it a ton this summer. It was light, comfy, and combined stripes and florals which I adore.

Check out my sexy, white, bruised legs. This was taken late July, early August. This is as tan as I get.

Shirt:Walmart ($1!)
Skirt: Vintage Gap
Shoes:Ann Taylor
Necklace: Corvidae (my new line! More news on this very soon)
