This year I was lucky enough to go to BOTH February and September’s New York Fashion Week. Since fall has started arriving upon us, I thought I would share about the upcoming fall fashion from the NYFW runway to Des Moines. Fall is always about a…
Polka dots have long been a favored pattern. You need to be careful though as they can make a person look larger that they are. Another thing to be watchful for is the size and quantity of the polka dot pattern. Too many, too small can overwhelm your onlookers.
When wearing polka dots keep in mind what the appearance of your ensemble does for your body and your onlookers. You don’t want your look to be too busy and you definitely don’t want it to “enlarge” your body shape.

Well, this time this post is going to be more like…What am I wearing tomorrow? With Valentine’s Day literally around the corner everyone is clamoring to figuring out what to wear, what shoes, what purse, hair, makeup etc.
I have been planning for weeks. Up until yesterday though of course. I went and found myself a Vintage looking Pink Dress. (Love pink can you tell?)
Sneak peek here (you have to wait until AFTER Vday to see the dress in action)
Then I went to this SUPER FAB place I go to all the time I think some of the girls know me by name. The place is called Atomic Garage. It’s in Des Moines in Valley Junction and I just ADORE them.Everything is Vintage, Retro etc… I just love the Vintage look and this store really helps me pull it together.
I bought this cute little Vintage purse, gloves and pendant to wear with my outfit. The purse needs a bit of work as the snap was coming off, but they knocked down the price a bit for me and I glued it back on today when I was working on my shoes.
And then the shoes…
I have been working on the shoes all day. I could go buy them or make my own. I would prefer to make my own. I reconstruct many things and one of my friends who redesigns shoes got me on this Reconstrcut kick so I have been giving a whirl at DIY projects for myself.
Here is what they started out looking like. They were actually Black about two weeks ago but I forgot to take a picture of them like that. Then I tried to spray paint them and yeah well that didn’t work so thrid time is a charm I guess…
They are unfinished but here is what I have so far… I am repainting them with a softer pink and in a new way…(it’s a secret) I think I have finally found the formula for making shoes now. We will see how they hold up. The ones I did for New York did NOT stand up to the NY City Streets so I can back to the drawing board and hopefully I figured it out now. We will see..
I painted the underside too but that looks weird right now so I’m not showing you (Giggle) I added a fringe on the inside. I cut up an old sheer bag I got at a gift party and used the top part of the bag for the inside ruffle. Ingenious DIY don’t you think? Well, I do anyway…

So we sit at the threshold of a new year again. But this year instead of looking into this past year, we take you back to the 1940’s. Follow along with a peek into the past…
