I've been obsessed with the show Girls since it's pilot episode aired on HBO last year. I love it. It's my Sex and the City replacement but smarter and younger with interesting fashion and life choices. It's like what The Carrie Diaries should be.
So one of the characters is a writer and she wants to write for a website. Her boss is telling her what they would like to see from her and refers to an illustration on the wall. I re-created this on my own. :)
It basically is telling you to get out of your comfort zone because that's where the magic happens! "The Magic" is something that a creative mind hungers for. Sometimes I find it and sometimes I don't.
I never wear my bangs out of pinned back, I never wear brown eye liner, but today I am. I hope you enjoy this different look! It makes me feel like I found a little bit of magic in my cosmetic bag. :) That's never a bad thing!
|I used light and medium brown eye shadows and a brown eye liner pencil to create this look.|
|I braided my bangs and pinned them back, hiding the bobby pins with|
|Who needs comfort zones anyway?|
P.S. If you haven't seen girls, please get with the program!

Let's be honest, we all know rain is necessary to our survival and the entire ecosystem. The only problem is it makes my hair do stupid things. It makes my eyelids heavy and I don't feel like fixing up. It makes me want to dress
We can't forget the outerwear, considering the rain! I have this camel colored trench and a zebra print umbrella for keeping dry!
Trench: Old Navy

Everyone always asks how I get great deals. I find some of the best deals at Target in the clearance. I know not everyone has a Target and I understand that sometimes you don't have time to go shopping. I put together a few things that are ONLINE in the Target plus size clearance right now. There are some things on their website that I have bought but they are more expensive online than they were in my store so I left them out. So... Here are 12 things ANYONE can get RIGHT NOW in the Target clearance ONLINE!
Don't act like I never told ya! ;)

I frequent the Forever 21 + section in my local store but there are always pieces online that don't make it in my store. I wish the plus section was a little bit bigger than it is. I am however thankful that I even have a store that carries the plus line! That used to be a 3 hour road trip to Dallas just to go to the small corner of clothes in my size.
For instance, the sequin dress is in my store and I touch it every single time I walk past it. I love this dress. It's so me. Anyway, one of my secrets on bargain shopping is that when I find something I love that I don't want to pay full price for, I stalk it. This dress is almost $50. I don't want to pay $50 for this dress and I won't! Want to know why? I can wait... I will wait on this dress to go on sale in my Forever 21. There were still a ton of these dress on the rack for the past few weeks. I can only hope it will stay that way. I'm buying this dress when it goes on clearance! Don't believe me, just watch! *Trinidad James voice*

Something else I'm loving are all of these feminine sheer blouses. I die for mint green. It's just so refreshing! This shirt also has studs so you get a little edge to this classic look.
This pleated skirt is EVERYTHING! I love the geometric print and the colors are to die for! I have a sheer sleeveless button up shirt that would be so fab with this and a high heel sandal! Guuuuurrrrrllllll!!! LOL
Did you not LOVE Lucy Liu's incredible Carolina Herrera gown at the Golden Globes 2013? This shirt reminds me of it! So fresh and fun! You can make this really girly or give it some edge depending on your accessories! Such a versatile piece!
Lastly, this peplum dress is so cute and different! I like the colors, cut outs in the back and the shape is phenom!
