My jobs seem to be less and less fashion friendly lately. I’ve been very busy over at my restaurant job, which entails wearing grease stained clothing. My framing job has been FREEZING! I am constantly just wearing pants and a cuddly sweater. Add on top of that my work has been keeping me really busy.
But I wanted to share two recent outfits with one of my favorite dresses. I got it from Modcloth about a year and half ago and it is very versatile. I usually wear it to work at the frame shop since it works so well with a cardigan and tights. But I recently found out that you can dress it up. I got this sequined jacket for a wedding, but the skirt I was going to pair it with did not fully mix. But it worked perfectly this dress. I was going to take a photo of the outfit at the wedding, but the lighting was very weird, and afterwards I had too much to drink to care.
Can I also point out how big my calves are? Holy crap right? I guess they are the results from running with five finger shoes. I love my body but it makes me a little sad about if I will be ever able to wear my skinny jeans again. They are so hard to squeeze over my calves, and if I size up it will be too big for the waist. Oh well.

Dress: Hot Topic | Cardigan: Hot Topic | Shoes: Payless
Hello fellow readers! It’s me Alexa, your Cool-Goth-Friend! I know that Jenny already made her post a few weeks ago about our big outing, but I just never got to it until today.
Like Jenny mentioned previously, she came up to visit me so we could get some work done on the blog and take cute pics of our outfits over at Deep Cut Gardens. My boyfriend, known as Mr. Ian, brought me here when we first started dating and I fell in love with the place. It has a beautiful green house with various different species growing inside, and the grounds are well maintained and look spectacular in the spring and summer time.

Shirt: YesStyle | Skirt: Comme Toi via Modcloth | Shoes: Em & Sprout
So this Wednesday I drove up to my hometown to talk to my co-blogger Alexa. She hasn’t been too active on the blog, but you will recognize her work on the logo and the drawings. We decided she should blog more, since she is a really cool cat. Which means I need to update a bunch of stuff since the blog is mostly info about me… and none of the “about” stuff was really finished anyways. Alexa and I talked about the blog, took photos of our cute outfits, which hopefully Alexa will post in a fashion post soon.
Let me just say I love this skirt from Modcloth. I’ve been wearing it a good bit to work since it is super cozy and has pockets. Pockets are something that prevents me from wearing skirts to work. If I want to listen to my ipod I sometimes having to tuck it into my skirt and undies- no friggin joke! And this shirt I pulled out of dresser and made me remember why I loved YesStyle. Yes, they have limited sizes and they have terrible returns, but they have great t-shirts. This one is not only cute, but the fit is really flattering.

Dress: Bea & Dot via Modcloth | Pin: thrifted gift | Tights: handme down | Shoes: Pink Studio via Modcloth
Can I first talk about this dress? Modcloth was having their Stylish Surprise sale, in which you specify your size, and they send a random article of clothing. For $10 you could get something that was $40 or $200. Of coarse you have little say in what you get. They do this to get rid of unsellable clothes that aren’t damaged but have been returned after being taken down from the site. In the past I have gotten this sailor dress, which I wear often, but isn’t something I loved (it’s just practical). I also got a cardigan which is snuggly, but no good for my overheated apartment. I still get excited and I get one article of clothing each time they have the sale. I keep hoping I will get one of the more expensive dresses.
This time I opened the box and saw the big beautiful Bea & Dot label. I knew I struck gold. This dress isn’t sold anymore by the label, but I still managed to find which dress it was- Technical Writer Dress. It is really amazing. The fabric is thick and great quality. The dress is lined and fitted with pockets. And my favorite part of the dress is that it has fake buttons in the front. As a chesty girl, I usually tug at my buttons try to avoid pulling. No need for this dress.
I wanted to wear this dress earlier but for whatever reason couldn’t until this weekend. It was the perfect weather to wear to the art museum to FINALLY see the Treasures of Korea exhibit.

Hat: Vintage Gift | Shirt: Modcloth | Brooch: Vintage Gift | Skirt: American Apparel | Tights: Target | Shoes: Thrifted
I mentioned before that the past week have been super crazy. I work a lot of days at the restaurant so most of my outfits were based on which pants were clean and could get another grease stain. I wanted to dress up, but I still really can’t. My other job, at the moment, involves a lot of glue. Seriously? Why all the clothing hate guys?

Earrings: gift | Shirt: Fervour via Modcloth | Purse: Coach (thrifted gift) | Skirt: American Apparel | Shoes: Bumper via Modcloth
I had a wonderful but exhusting weekend. I am a huge Asian Pop fan. I have been listening to Chinese, Taiwanese, Korean and (mostly) Japanese pop and rock for years. One of my top favorite artists is Nakata Yasutaka. He never really releases music on his own, instead works in a duo called capsule, and composes music for lots of different artists. I love him because he not only just composes music, but lends his vision and image to the artist he creates music for.

Bow: Modcloth | Shirt: nümph | Blouse: H&M | Skirt: Modcloth | Shoes: Gift
I originally bought this skirt from Modcloth to try and wear it to an upcoming wedding. I wanted something to wear that would hide my tattoo. Not that I am trying to hide who I am, but I just feel like someone else’s wedding isn’t where I want to reveal my ink. Anyways, I love the skirt, though it doesn’t quite match the longer sleeved shirt I originally got it for. Oops.

Sweater: Mystery China Brand | Dress: Freeway via Modcloth | Tights: Target | Socks: H&M | Shoes: Frye Boots (hand-me downs)
As I wrote down all the clothing, I just noticed I own a lot of leather considering I don’t eat meat. All have been gifted, vintage, or hand-me downs. I guess I don’t like the idea that an animal died just to have it be thrown out. But I am glad to have such a stylish Mother-in-Law (who has the same shoe size), otherwise I wouldn’t get these great boots. They have been a lifesaver this winter.
Snow came down again, which made my walk to work really cold. Not to mention my work is back to it’s freezer status, which is the downside of older buildings. This sweater is super wonderful. I bought it for under $20 from some ebay site with low expectations. I just wanted something cute and warm. What I got was a fuzzy and warm sweater. I actually come home sweaty because it is so warm. And I as I write this I am sad that I didn’t take a photo of the back. As it has the same striping from the sleeves on the back, even with a little orange mixed in there.
I will hopefully have another great recipe to post tomorrow. And by recipe I mean just a cocktail. But hey, who doesn’t love a drink?
