Outfit Post #3: Barbie Inspired

I was dressing up some of my dolls one day when I realized, much like my own wardrobe, I buy a lot of black and white and dark colored clothing for my dolls. This made me wonder if I could create similar outfits as my Barbie dolls. I know, this is a silly but fun idea (and probably I sign of my deteriorating mental state).

So here is my third outfit post. Gina (on the right) and I are both sporting grey skirt suits with lavender shirts. We're also both wearing grey shoes, but you can't tell from the picture.

Speaking of dolls, I've decided to end my Dolli Luv blog (managing two blogs is quite a strain!) and instead post my doll pictures on Flickr. You see this and other great pictures by clicking the Flickr badge in the sidebar.

Sheer Tights Wishlist

Spring Sheer Tights Wishlist

Spring in the North means that the temperatures should be getting into the 40s, 50s, and 60s, which by my standards are not at all bare-leg weather. At the same time, it's still too warm to continue wearing my thicker winter tights. My solution: sheer tights!

I usually wear a lot of sheer tights during the Spring and early summer months. I had a ton of sheer tights a few years ago, but because I didn't wash them in garment bags, they quickly developed rips and tares.

This year, I want to be a little more adventurous with my tights design, so I'm going to try some bolder patterns.

New Phone: Samsung Galaxy SIII

I haven't done a techie/ electronics post since I got my last phone a couple of years ago, so here goes. My other phone was a Samsung Galaxy Victory. It was a decent first smart phone, although it did began to freeze a lot over the last year. The biggest problem I had was that it only had 1GB of storage, and apps couldn't be stored on the SD card, so as of six months ago, my phone was completely filled and I could not longer update my apps. Now mind you, I only had maybe five apps that I had downloaded, and the rest were system apps that can't be uninstalled, so my only option was a new phone.

Now I know that the SIII is a crappy phone, but it was half as much as the S5, so switching it out for another phone in the next year seems like a decent trade-off based on the price. I've had it for two weeks now and so far so good. KitKat is different enough from JellyBean that it does take a bit of getting used to, but not much.

The great thing about the SIII is the super cute cases available! Naturally, I bought the Hello Kitty cases below for my phone:

Leather Wallet Case Back
Leather Wallet Case Front
Silicon Soft Case
Paris <3 Me wallet case front

Outfit Post: Electric Blue

This is the outfit I wore yesterday. I'm so tired of wearing thick sweaters an dark clothes, that I decided to lighten up a little, albeit a little prematurely. Considering that it snowed last Thursday, the 40 degree weather we had on Monday totally justified this outfit, though!

The skirt is from the new petites collection from New York & Company. Finally, after countless years of existence, they have started making petite skirts. All you regular sized people out there have absolutely no idea how hard it is to find skirts that don't make you look like you're a five year old wearing your mother's skirts. Despite being on a pretty tight budget, I showed my appreciation by being three skirts. Thanks NY&Co for making today's outfit post possible!
