Oh, it's on.

Well, the inevitable has happened and I didn't even see it coming. Summer is here and I'm craving fringe and light denim, loose beat up tees, and cut offs.

Somehow every year, my look goes from super-femme to 70s rock n roll-hippie.

And it's happening again.

First on my list:

Strawberry Party!

I wore this last night to a strawberry party and to see Packway Handle Band play some good old timey music!

I love to theme dress and made this strawberry hair clip just for the occasion!













Everyone brought a strawberry dish! I of course made cupcakes!

Star Earrings

I've been thinking about starting to make earrings for Summer...Silly ones like watermelons and flamingos and lightening bolts!

I made these a couple of weeks ago and have been wearing them a lot!

Rose Cupcakes

I was decorating a cake with butter cream roses the other day when I decided to pipe one out on top of a mini cupcake! I really like the result and have already had my first order for them! :)

The first ones in strawberry buttercream...


On chocolate cakes


They're multiplying!

Fran!

I've finally tracked down my size and desired color of Betsey Johnson's Fran Heels!

I found them on ebay...I can't wait to get them!



Love the bottoms!

Citrus Chiffon Pie

I made this Citrus Chiffon Pie two days ago and topped it with candied orange peels. I'd never made candied citrus peels, but it was surprisingly simple!

We sell these pies by the slice at work, which is why there are so many citrus knots on the pie...I think it'd be lovely with just one in the middle.

I'm going to try to figure out how to shape them into bows!

Drag Queen Bingo!

I wore this last night to meet the girls for Drag Queen Bingo at our favorite bar. We had an awesome time!

I of course wanted to get dolled up, but had been working all day so still wanted to be comfy. Enter this vintage bright turquoise nightie I found at a thrift store. Belted, I think it totally works as a dress and I love the angel sleeves and black trim!




I rarely curl my hair, but when I do I wish I took the time to do it more!


I added the headband, because you should over accessorize on occasions such as this.



I love this bracelet...I've been into solid black jewelry lately. I don't wear a lot of jewelry, but I really like the simplicity of shiny black.



The evening was hosted by Deonna Sage who can not only do freaking back flips and splits in 4 inch heels, but also has the sweetest ass of anyone I've ever seen.

I only got this crappy picture, but she was fanning herself after her acrobatic performance.

Radar Love, Cat Shirt, and Me

I found this amazing cat shirt at Wet Seal half off the other day. Hahaha! I think it's hilarious and I love it.



F21:




Love these Betsey shoes, but for $200, dream on lady.


This is me in a dressing room the other day. I was bumming it. Hoorah. The tank is from...Wet Seal.


I've been sort of obsessed with the colors hot pink, turquoise, and black in combination and alone and am thinking my entire wardrobe is eventually going to mirror this obsession.

Frilly and Pink + Redone Hair

I wore this outfit out Saturday night for a couple of drinks and some dancing! I got the top on clearance for like 5 dollars, because it had a big hole in the back which I fixed up!

This is my new Betsey bag, which has been on my wish list for months! Yay!





I found some sandals I actually like! I found them at some place called Shoe Carnival or something ridiculous like that. I like that they're simple, shiny, and not gladiators.


I redid my turquoise stripe, which had faded out a bunch. It's really bright this time!

Boring side...


Bam!

Mamacita and a Pickle.

I found this amazing print a couple of weeks ago at a thrift store and finally got around to revamping the brown wood frame with red paint and glitter! I'm tempted to add more to the frame...Little trinkets and marigolds and things...We'll see.



My best friend Thalia gave this as a gift to me the last time she visited. She found it at the Salvation Army and decided I needed to own it. It's actually a Christmas ornament and came with a story...Apparently it used to be a tradition to hang a pickle ornament on the Christmas tree and whoever located it first got to have a special present! I tied it onto my lamp with a ribbon until I can use it for its intended purpose.





Meringue, Chili Chocolate, and Oatmeal Cream Pies

Meringue is one of my favorite things ever!


I made Mexican Chili Chocolate Cupcakes for Cinco de Mayo yesterday. They were really delicious!


Oatmeal Cream Pies were my favorite when I was a kid...I used to eat them when I went to visit my Grandparents.
