bemuse · super mar-rainbow

to be honest, i don't wholly dislike her look. 
there's no part of me that can argue this outfit is stylish.
it's bright and my eyes are attracted to all the colors.
her (pajama) pants have an all-over super mario print.

the 8-year old in me thinks she's really cool.
the blogger in me remains bemused.

that outfit should not have left the house.

muse · the best curves

i haven't had the privilege of being pregnant yet. but when i do.

i want to show off my belly every month of the journey!

a nice, tight, round belly is the most beautiful curve a woman can sport.  so when you're preggers, do as TRISH does.

wear tight tops.
wear bright colors.
and above all: wear a design that highlights·hugs every inch of your roundness.

(can't wait. )

friday find · inspired by those 7 guys

(starting today, at least one friday each month i'll be posting a thrift-store-inspired blog.)

what's the first rule of thrifting that all stylish thrifters know?

what is the most intimidating part of thrifting for me?
the dig dig digadig dig.

but. it doesn't take much digging to look through the jewelry.  so i've started there.

and look what i found?
this beautiful ram necklace - i'm pretty convinced no one else is rockin' this piece and that makes it a killer find.

so be*muse family...what is your best thrifted jewelry score?

muse · off the cuff

to cuff or not to cuff? 

that is the question.

for STEPHEN, the answer is clear.
and good.
and perfect.


(double yes to his shoes too!)

seeking inspiration · his own line

meet KYLE. here's a couple things you should know about him.

1. he's a budding fashion designer with an eye for photography.

2. he designed that hat he's wearing. (yes, he has some for sale too!)

3. the best part about his outfit is his shoes: he took the bottoms off a NIKE LUNAR sneaker and attached them to the top of a SPERRY TOPSIDER.  

and wore them. 
correction: rocks them often. 

as he should!

oh yeah. TRISTAN and KYLE are best buds. too much style between them!

muse · a lil bit of here and there

it was the boots and cuffed jeans that drew me to her outfit.
and then i noticed her camel-colored vest.


layered over a white shirt·lace trim.

whaaaat? i love this outfit on JULIANA.

a little bit hipster..a little bit country..even a little bit beachy. (love her loose curls!)

and no wonder: she grew up in kansas but has been living in seattle the last few years so her style has incorporated a little bit of this with a little of that.

and i like.

muse · unplanned black and yellow

when life hands you lemons...make lemon bars. (what? i prefer sweets to drinks.)

when, out of nowhere, a butterfly lands on your shirt, start posing for pictures baby, because that's the best accessory we've ever seen!

(yes, this was during a parade. spotlight --> STOLEN!)

bemuse·you left the house in that??

my eyes were assaulted at the grocery store.

in the last post, TRISTAN showed how one can wear different patterns in an awesome way.

this guy's pattern clashing?

muse·in power patterns

"it's called 'power-clashing' and i do it because i can."
- jack donaghy, 30 Rock

TRISTAN is back and he's power clashing patterns like nobody's business. and look how the bow-tie matches the shoes. i love a man who knows how to accessorize!
