Ermahgerd* Sprerng!

Cleveland is finally experiencing a bit of a reprieve after a grueling winter that has basically reduced me to Wednesday Addams incarnate — pale, sullen, brooding, contemplating mass murder, I mean  If you count just above-freezing temps and a few rays of light a reprieve. Whatever. I’ll take it.

So in light of, well, more light and warmer temps, I give you two spring trends for the price of one: ‘70s fringe and a pussy bow blouse. (Hey, don’t blame me for the giggle-inducing name.)

What I'm wearing: vintage blouse from a clothing swap, thrifted vintage suede skirt, H&M sweater tights, Target boots and earrings, snake vertebrae necklace,  Baublebar  leather wrap bracelet, thrifted vintage bangle bracelet, homegrown armpit bush.

And in case you're one of the readers who I'm not friends with on facebook (hi guys!) and haven't already seen it a hundred times, I was featured in the Cleveland Plain Dealer's weekly fashion column, Fashion Flash. It was an honor to be nominated and chosen for it, and I had a blast doing the photoshoot, interview and video. Fortunately, I've done a tad bit of modeling for Victoria Stanbridge Photography and have a background in theater, both of which proved useful for posing and ad libbing the video footage. Check it out, if you haven't already!

It is statistically impossible to refrain from shaking it while wearing fringe. Science.

I like big bows and I cannot lie.
