Where's the Funeral?




 Dress// H&M (another one from Mom's closet)
Shoes// Liz Claiborne
Necklace// Vintage via Grandma
Belt// Anthro


Don't worry, noone died. I wonder is anyone has ever done a style post before they go to a funeral, like a post on funeral wear. I can't tell if that would be tacky or hilarious.

Tonight my parents are taking me and my aunt uncle out to a classy din din in the city! So I thought a basic black look would be best for a chic restaurant. The other day I realized that I didn't own any basic black dressy shoes. I have no idea how I let that happen (probably cause I wear my moms shoes all the time), but I took a drive down to DSW and picked these up. I can't be happier with them, they are super comfortable (I mean it..usually when people say heels are comfortable means "they're not THAT bad") and I love that they're Maryjanes. I need a little extra quirky detail for them to work for me.

I've been having a great week with them visiting, they are so much fun to be around. I never get to see my Aunt Gloria and she's such a great lady, and she's one of those people that when you're around them you're just constantly laughing.

It's almost time to go so smell ya later!

Love,
Midge

Red, Black, and Blue



Top// Modcloth
Skirt// H&M
Shoes// Blowfish
Button// Say Hello Studios on Etsy
Ack! It's been 4 days since I blogged on here last, and I already had some with-drawls! Today my Aunt Gloria is getting here for her week long visit, and I'm so excited to see her, it's going to be a real fun week.

I love accessorizing peter pan collars with a cute button in the middle, I think it's the perfect touch to an outfit. I'm also happy that it's finally tights weather. Black tights are like my number one staple in my wardrobe.

I'm alos having DIY blogging with-drawls because it's been a while for that too..I was thinking of doing something with empty wine bottles? I save certain ones that were from special occasions and I feel like I need to do something crafty with them so I don't seem like a hoarder. When I do come up with something, I will be sure to share!

Love,
Midge

Sorry I Couldn't Hear You Over my Polka Dots




Dress// New York & Company
Glasses// Vintage
Shoes// Miz Moo

It's Friday again already?! Jesus. 
Tonight I'm going into the city with my dad to see Joe Jackson (as in the actual musician, not the deranged stage dad)
This is another one of my mom's dresses. Actually, I think it's both of ours. Sometimes when we go shopping and we find something we both like and fits us both we got halfsies on it and share it. not that we don't already share our entire wardrobes with either, but whatever.
Other than tonight, I'm looking forward to a semi quite weekend with Mike, maybe cooking some dinner tomorrow. I say quiet because on Tuesday my Aunt Glo is coming to visit, whom I love and adore, and she's kind of the life of the party, so next week might get a little nuts. Yeah, I hang out and party with old folks, so what? The old folks in my family rule :)

Love,
Midge

Shop Update: Candy Striped Vintage

So, I told myself I wouldn't be selling clothing in my vintage shop, but I cracked! I though photographing them would be tricky but it actually wasn't at all.

These puppies are now up for grabs :)





I'll be adding some new accessories and wall hangings soon, too!

Love,

Witchy Weirdo


 Dress// Cheap Monday
Belt// F21
Boots// Zigi
Bracelets// Gift
Glasses// Ray Ban

So yeah I'm obsessed with my skull mug I made, which explains we holding it like a weirdo, treating it like some sacred artifact. It goes with the mood for today, gloomy, but I'm still enjoying it.
The sleeves of this dress make me feel like some sort of goth muppet, but only in the best way possible. It much better for much colder weather, i had to end up changing because I actually started to sweat. I wan some actual Autumn, weather, right now, please!
Maybe I'll go thrifty hunting for some new boots later. If I'm good!

Love,
Midge

Shop Update: Ghost World Obsessed

Hi all! You can probably tell by now that I am quite the Ghost World aficionado. So I spent some time with my old friend, illustrator, to make up some awesome Ghost World prints for my etsy shop!



I'm just really super excited about them, and that I'm getting back into illustration and drawing. I've always been kinda iffy about making "fan art" type things, because I really try hard to make it as paying homage instead of a rip off. It' hard to find that fine line, but I think I got it. I combined elements from the book and movie, with my own style of drawing put into it.

You can check 'em out in my shop at moderngirlblitz.etsy.com !

Glasses// Kiss
Brooch// Daisy's Creations on Etsy



Friday Friday Friday! Being as I'm such a busy business grrrl (hardy har har) I almost barely go out, but tonight I'm meeting up with some friend from college and I'm so excited, because it's much needed.

It's so hard sometimes to keep in touch with your friends from school after graduating, especially because we all end up scattered all over the tri state area. But I'm glad we all care enough to plan a fun night out, hah!

I barely do my eyeshadow this fancy, only when I'm going out into the city or something, so i thought I would show it off.. Sometimes I just don't have the patience for fancy eye makeup, especially if I'm going to just throw some glasses over it, too.

Well, I'm pretty much done for the work day, and my Rookie yearbook just came in the mail so I'll be engulfed in that until it's time to hop on the train.

Have a great weekend! <3

Love,
Midge

Re-Decorating - Fall

With a new season comes new decorations for my room! If you've scrolled through some of my really early posts on this blog, you'll know that my room used to look..angsty. Don't get me wrong, angsty rules, but it was getting to be too much for me, especially all the spray paint. Now that I re-did my room, it gives me much more of a blank slate to work with whenI want re-decorate with all my cute trinkets, that stand out much more now. Before they kind of just blended in with all the other crap.

ANYWAYS! Here's some stuff I put up for the Fall Season.



Say Hello to Nunzilla! She shoots sparks outta her mouth when she walks.


When I was a kid I was a black cat for Halloween for at least 4 years in a row.
This was my mask.

I even re-adjusted my zine wall to ones with fall colored/spooky themed covers


Til Winter....

Midge






Seafoam & Red




Top// Modcloth
Skirt// Thrifted
Tights// H&M
Shoes// Steve Madden
Glasses// Kiss

Hi! It's my first tights wearing day of the season! (I think) This pair is perfect, they are surprisingly made of a very good material and give great coverage for those who like the real opaque look.
The weather here has been PERFECT lately. I'm finally settling into fall, and I re-decorated part of my room (post about that soon). Now that my room is "normal" it makes it a lot easier for me to re-decorate for the seasons. before there was just crap everywhere and re-decorating seemed so pointless. But not I can put up all my orange and halloween like things and I'm so happy. 

How your transition into fall going? Embracing it or wishing it was still July?

Midge

Picnic Day

Yesterday I had a very relaxing and fun Sunday picnicking with Mike at the park. We bought lots of hipster foods and french cheese from whole food and some wine and just chilled. And the weather was totally perf, I love that it finally cooling down.

Right now I'm sitting at  my desk by the window with a cool breeze, wearing a sweater with some hot coffee. Its SO nice. God I love transition seasons.

Here are some picnic pictures!






Everything was just so delicious. i barely went up for air. Cheese is just glorious.



I wore one of my favorite thrifted dresses, that fits me liken a glove.

And it wouldn't be complete without some silly ugly doll pictures...






The End!

Love,
Midge
