A sunny disposition

I've really been obsessed with yellow with white lately, especially in bold patterns. Here is a whole slew of yellow and white stuff!

Brighten up a room with these:


I know that I have 3 more years of college, but i've found the guy so why not plan the wedding in my head. These are all included [don't have a panic attack sisters :)]
Yellow gingham silk dupioni- the reason I want a yellow wedding. For the moment.


Forget cleaning. I'm going to take a bath then go to bed early!!

Tammi O'Hair Photography

So, I have this friend Tammi and she's a photographer. She's beautiful and takes beautiful self-portraits. She's very soulful. Here are my favorites:







I think technically Sadie Collins took this one.



You can see her flickr portfolio here.

Red Dress Update 3?


Until recently I didn't think that I liked dogs. I apparently do! This is Ryker, my sister's dog.


Tonight I worked on the bodice for my Red Dress project. We had our muslin critique on Monday and I got some great feedback. I'm super excited to see exactly how everyone else's will turn out, especially Rachel's. Her's has a giant hand-beaded bow in the back!!

Going to bed. Hopefully I'll have some great post in the a.m.

Classic Chanel Staples

I've done absolutely no homework tonight and went to the Reds game. I consider the night a success. Although tiresome.

If you know me at all or have read any of my posts you know that my style is quite retro and nostalgic. That said, I'm in love with the idea of having a classic Chanel bag. They're just so pretty and versatile! My God mother gave me a vintage strand of hand knotted, real pearls for high school graduation. Maybe a Chanel bag for college graduation? Only dreaming.





I would also like to use Chanel No. 5 just because it's so classic and classy, but I honestly have no clue what it smells like!!

Ah Marilyn classy AND sassy. Wall decal from itswrittenonthewall


Sigh... I'm so broke.

However, I just bought a fair skin starter kit of makeup from Orglamix today. Legit mineral makeup has to be better than the "mineral powder" drugstore brand I'm almost out of currently. I love how the kit comes with a brush set and 2 color foundations so I can mix to my skin tone all year long! Not to mention the 3 shadows, blush, and some other stuff I can't remember are included.

nighty night, Mallory

Nifty Thrifty

In order to keep from going insane I try to thrift at least one afternoon a week. May not be the best on my broke college kid budget, but otherwise I'd internet shop anyway. I feel like I'm going through withdrawals at the moment, so I'm gawking at other's thrift store finds on we heart it

Tomorrow I'm going to the Reds game. I have to get through my first economics exam before it. EEK! I can't wait to have a big bratwurst like these!! Hot dogs at the ballpark are the best.

Irregular Choice shoes

I've been a bit busy lately. I just saw this shoe company for the first time and had to share it IMMEDIATELY!! Irregular Choice shoes are just too amazing!

If you're a shoe shopaholic and have a sense of humor in your wardrobe do not look now!!

Love these, but I'd take the monkey off asap.



I love some and think some are a bit scary, but you can't deny how fun these shoes are!
