Foxy Deery


This poncho sweater from Chicwish is super comfy for late fall! It still hasn't snowed here yet, so stuff like this is great for right now! Cute floofy skirt is from Tidestore, and faux fox tail is from Romwe!!



I reeeeally like deers/elk, so I kinda died a little when I found this bracelet from Sira & Mara! It has a really interesting shape to it. Ring is from Beginning Boutique.

Press Play, Fast Foreward


Wore this outfit recently. I'm really in love with basically every item I'm wearing, but mostly because the skirt and the boots both have studs on them. Couldn't be happier with how they match!

BOY sweatshirt is from Romwe, skirt & shoes are from Sammy Dress!





Doesn't the eagle look like it's pooping? I have no idea why they'd make their logo like that, but it's funny and I like it. XD Necklace is from Romwe.






Ffffff this fucking skirt from Sammy Dress is so awesome ;___; It's kind of short though, Josh always has to tell me to pull it down in the back!



Don't the boots match well?!

The North Face Review with GigaSavvy!



Recently, I was lucky enough to work with GigaSavvy who gave me the opportunity to receive two lovely North Face jackets! I've worn both of the jackets so far once to review them, and I am very pleased with both of them!

(Also, isn't this an awesome old picture of my dad? It's near the grand canyon in the late 70's, I think. It has a very vintage North Face feel to it, to me!! Wasn't my dad stylish??)

Here's the song that inspired this post:




Anyway, on the the review!!


The first sweatshirt above, I wore on a very cold (but clear) day, and it was perfect! It was warm enough that I wasn't cold, which says a lot for Oregon in the winter/ late fall, but it wasn't TOO warm to where I had to keep taking it off. (I tend to get overheated easily and much prefer the cold to the hot, so this is a defining factor in how much I like a piece of outerwear!)




This second jacket I wore out during the rain to keep me dry and break the wind, with the sweatshirt underneath for warmth. Was out for about 30 minutes in the rain, and it repelled the water well. I didn't have a drop on me when I came back in the house!




The collar of the jacket stands up, and the shape of the hood allows for good blockage of rain.

I hope you guys enjoyed this review!

Power of the Unicorn // Romwe & Chicwish!!


First of all I want to announce: THIS WEATHER BLOWS CHUCKS! And I'm not even talking the weather in these photos. (Well, that weather sucked too, but I'd be lucky to even have that much right now) You see my "about me" description on the side of my blog that says "My life is spent in the usually rainy, sometimes sunny land of the Pacific Northwest..." Yeah, well this is that "usually rainy" part--and it lasts for like 6 months. The dehumidifier in our bedroom is at a soggy 86% humidity (which basically means I'm drowning lol) so I've finally acquired my season-long winter cough which will maybe go away in like 5 months. Yaaay asthma.

Anyway, bitching aside, my top is from Chicwish & it's fucking awesome. Spike necklace is from Romwe.

Here, have this really awesome song that fits my mood this season. It's another song by Little People, called "Aldgate Patterns" and the video is really cool, so watch it!! (Probably my favourite song from the album!)





Haggard, Haggard! UUUNICORNS!! Ok, time to watch Last Unicorn now. (You know an animated movie is good when America does the songs for it!!)




Claw ring is from Beginning Boutique. I don't think I ever take this sucker off, haha.

Always love wearing this leopard skirt!! Jacket is from Romwe, and shirt is from Beginning Boutique.

Here's the song that inspired this outfit! It's called Marzipan Children, by Little People. I've liked the artist for about two years now, and this song is from their new album that came out--you should look into it, it's really good!! (Also, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE listen to this with a lot of bass. Or at least headphones--it's worthless without it!!)

United States Presidential Election


Normally, I don't like politics. And to be honest, I still don't. I think the vast majority of it is a fat load of bull.  (And you have my word that this will be the only annoying pro-voting/ politically geared post I make on my blog. I don't like to be pushy.) BUT this year, I decided to vote. And I've never voted before--in all my 25 years, I never felt informed enough to vote--or strongly enough about any policies to have my vote matter.

But that's just it. One vote DOES matter, and here's why. Read the page I linked to or not, but it's pretty interesting--it's a list of incredible things that came into being by a one vote margin. The ENTIRE WEST COAST of the USA was admitted to the union by a margin of one vote. Most of these deal around one electoral vote, but one individual's vote can still swing everything.

These days, I realize my one vote DOES matter, and that I can't sit silent anymore.

Personally, I'm voting for  Obama. I like what he's done so far, and believe that 4 years isn't enough for this country to see the outcomes of the things he's done for us yet.

Currently, Republicans vastly outweigh Democrats in their funding for political advertisements--which can win or lose a race. If you can, please donate $5 before midnight tonight (Which is the payment deadline for these political ads) If you'd like to do so, you can do so here. You can also donate here. And even once this deadline has passed, you can still help out by voting yourself, and spreading voting awareness!

Whatever you choose to do, voting at ALL is really what is important. You have a voice and a privillage: USE IT.

Anyway, again, I promise this will be the only annoying political post I make, so just ignore this if you like. Either way, if you read this, thanks for reading! (You'll also notice an electoral vote widget at the top of my blog. It'll be gone in a few days in case anyone is wondering!)
