Black and Gold Egyptian Ankh Earrings

Black and Gold Egyptian Ankh Earrings

So, confession time:

I am *kind of* a nerd for ancient Egypt. I find the Eighteenth Dynasty in particular to be utterly fascinating. In fact, all through middle school and most of high school I wanted to be an egyptologist. Turns out you have to go to school for a loooong time to be an egyptologist, and quite frankly I didn't want ot go to school at all when I was 17.

While my desire to be an egyptologist has faded, my love of ancient Egypt has not. So when I came across these super rad Black and Gold Egyptian Ankh Earrings from Pixie Kitsune I was pretty stoked. Yeah, they are over the top, but that is what makes them amazing, right!? And even though I have no income right now, I can totally afford to spend 12 bucks.

Quotation: 525 America Sweater Dress

Quotation: 525 America Sweater Dress - Collar

As summer comes closer and closer to a close, I am beginning to pine for all things fall. Sweater dresses for instance. I mean really, who doesn't love a sweater dress? They are comfy and warm and easy to dress up for work and down for the weekend. This one in particular I can see being super versatile. The black and gray combo is perfect for fall and winter, and can be so simply accessorized. You can wear it with silver or gold or color or neutrals.

You know me, I'd pair it with some BRIGHT tights and chunky wedges and maybe an over the top brooch

Black Moto Boots

Check out these cool Pink and Pepper 'Baird' moto-inspired boots. I like how the quilting detail makes them feel a little on the futuristic bad ass space explorer side... ... ... ... ...Well that's what they make me think of.

Aaaaand they are synthetic, so no poor baby cows were sacrificed for this Too Cool Space Biker Chick. Radtastic.

Cute ASOS Blouse

How cute is this blouse from ASOS? I love the pointed cut out detail on the collar, it's a nice variation to your standard run of the mill peter pan. I mean, don't get me wrong, I am still and always will be drawn to collars of the peter pan variety, but it's nice to see it done a little differently. 

And while I personally would never pair this with a brown leather pleated skirt, I do think it's super sweet tucked into a vintage silhouette; either a circle skirt or a pencil skirt that falls at your natural waistline. 

Mayhap this will be making an appearance in my closet soonly... It's 20% off right now!

Chic Silhouette Pin


I love a good brooch, don't you? They are such an underutilized accessory these days. I especially like that this Chic Silhouette Pin via Modcloth is not your standard rhinestone encrusted bauble. And at $16.99 it is a steal, sure to add a little kick to any blazer, blouse, or scarf.

Cruelty Free Handbag

Big Buddha Handbag, Penn Hobo

You know what is awesome? When you realize a company you have long supported is cruelty free. I've had many Big Buddha purses in the past and this Penn Hobo is on my current "want" list. Soft imitation leather, minimal yet edgy hardware, and at just under $100 it's as if it was made just for me!
