2//THESE EFFING SHOES by Isaac Mizrahi. I saw these in Lord and Taylor the other day and nearly died. The photo does no justice, the leather is SPARKLY. And the wedge heel is a translucent pink. DEAD.

Too Much Geek

 photo IMG_9778_zpsfae642c3.jpg  photo IMG_9787_zps173c959c.jpg

Top// H&M
Skirt// Thrifted
Shoes// Abound
Glasses// Kiss

Oh hai! This is gonna be quick, I'm on my way out the door! This outfit may be jus a tad too much geek chic for me. If that's even possible. I like my skirts a tad shorter. Other than that it totally has Audrey Horne appeal. 

Anyways, gotta go!

Love,
Midge
PS Kate Nash was awesome, thanks for all your comments! I'll post about that later!

I'M SEEING KATE NASH TONIGHT! I'm so excited. When I first searched for her NYC shows they were sold out, but I luckily snagged one on stub hub. (angels singing)

Even though I'm going all my my lonely self, i'll still have fun, I've been listening to her obsessively for like 2 years now, and her new album is so good and gaaah. I need to go to more shows.

Anyways..this dress. New fave. The texture is like that dots candy, but metal. Really cute and unique, and the fit and cute is to diiie for.  I love low backs! Warm weather, hurry your ass up. I'll probably be changing into darker tights and some ankle boots before I head into the city, it's still too cold for the lower portion of my outfit.

Can't wait to tell you how awesome tonights show is :D

Love,
Midge

Fancying Friday


1// IT'S JELLY BEAN SEASON!

Jelly beans are my weakness, and my dad just bought a crap load, along with other Easter Candy goodies.

2// This lady, Laura Flook's life
 photo tumblr_mjsg7uUfut1r7ue8io2_500_zps35afea99.png

Is it ok that I add somebody/their life to a friday fave list? Whatever, I just did, it's my blog! I reblogged this screengrab on tumblr, not knowing what it was from. Turns out it's from that show Oddities and this lady is a model turned mortician turned fashion designer. If she ended up on project runway it would make my life.

Watermelon Girl

Top// Ju Ju Samuse 
Skirt// Zara
Boots// Zigi

I'm dressed like a watermelon and it's snowing AGAIN! Outfits like this seem so sad when its like this outside. I had to stop my self today at Michaels from buying a huge bunch of fake flowers to brighten things up around here. I refrained, haha. Once Spring ACTUALLY gets here my yard grows tons of lovely flowers anyways, so I'll just wait it out for the real thing. 
Its so annoying how weather effects moods so much..but my BUST magazine came today, so that cheered me up! The little things always cheer me up. I also have a modcloth package coming soon that I'm compulsively tracking. It's in a sorting facility in my town, and I'm getting so ansty! 

Love,
Midge

Happy Soles

Dress// Gap
Tights// Leg Avenue
Sweater & Shoes// Abound
Belt// Thrifted

This was my St. Patrick's Day outfit. I am part Irish, though I don't normally partake in St Patricks Day festivities.. which means here on Long Island getting drunk at 9 Am and going to the crowed parade trashed and being annoying. So Mike and I went to the Brooklyn Museum. I've never been there! I've heard of Judy Chicago's Dinner Party, but I didn't know it was in the Brooklyn Museum. I was thrilled to see it, it's kind of a spectacle.

Speaking of spectacles... THESE SHOES! I got them at Nordstrom rack, so they were cheap and cheerful. I actually bought almost this entire outfit in the same shopping rampage I had on Friday, a new block of outlet stores opened by me, aka Midge's heaven. I got this dress for 3 dollars, it was 14$ and I had 11$ on a gift card. BOOM.

Love,
Midge

Midge's Mailbox 3/18

Time for another installment of Midge's mailbox! This one is kinda short, but it's something :)


 photo IMG_9513_zps2a5424d5.jpg

1// Invincible Summer by Nicole J. Georges
I recently finished Nicole's other book, Calling Dr. Laura. This one is anthology of her zines, nine of which I own so getting the book version seemed like a good idea to me! I love comic/graphic zines and books, and I FLEW through Calling Dr. Laura, and I needed more..I love her style, and her comics are witty, relatable, and have lots of cute animal drawings and she has the same love for cat eye glasses that I do. And I love the pretty pink cover. All around awesomeness.

2// Rad Button by Buttonator

Can't wait to wear this cute lil button on my favorite new cardigan... it's the little things!

3// This is What a Feminist Likes by Hello Mountains
 photo IMG_9518_zps81b3b3de.jpg

Cute little drawing zine, each pages illustrating things that feminists like! I like most of the stuff in there, so I think it's pretty accurate ;)

Hope you are having a great Monday, or as I have been calling it lately, RuPaul's Drag Race is on Tonight day!

Fancying Friday

I CANNOT STOP listening to this album. I love Kate Nash so much. She has like a perfect balance of angry riot grrrl and cute 60's girl group sound. PERFECTION. Pretty much everything I look for in my music.

The Lost Dress

 photo IMG_9437_zps6a638a98.jpg

Tunic// Target (Old..very old)
Underskirt// H&M
Glasses// KISS
Button// made it myself!
Shoes//  Sam Edlemen

 photo IMG_9454_zpscda04b30.jpg

When I was digging through my closet to find stuff to get rid of, I came across this tunic that I got like, 6 years ago at target. Now, 6 years ago, my style was, well, different. (I had a mohawk) So this wasn't really my style and forgot I had it. Now that I'm into cute retro patterns like this, I re-discovered it and I love it! Its just a TAD too short so one of those 5$ mini skirts from H&M is perfect to wear underneath. Those skirts are perfect staples, I highly recommend them, in every color. And they're 5$ (or 6$, I forgot) And my typewriter button suits the outfit well, I think.
And I got another new pair of fake glasses, these are red. I lost my brown ones..I have a feeling they're in the space between my wall and dresser. I find a lot of long lost stuff there. I should go look later WHO KNOWS WHAT I'LL FIND!

Love,
Midge

Shirt// Lost Records
Skirt// Thrifted
Boots// Bass Outlet
Glasses// Vintage
Bracelet// Kate Spade

I feel like this post is like an updated version of this one.  I love this shirt so much. Favorite band shirt, without a doubt. One time i caught Mike trying to put it on, but it was because at first glance he thought it was his Willie Nelson shirt. 

I'm having a bust and productive week, been getting lots of new wardrobe additions that I'm excited to share with all of you! This post is gotta be kind of quick..I got to go to yoga in like 15 minutes, and you can't do yoga in a plaid mini and moto boots..well you can..it would just be weird.

Love,

Fancying Friday: Feminist Frenzy (Etsy Edition)

Happy International Women's Day, all! In honor of this day celebrating all my awesome fellow ladies, I decided to dedicate Fancying Friday to some of my fellow feminist artists and crafters! I'm a strong believer in supporting other artists and etsy sellers like myself as opposed to turning everything in a competition. It warms my heart when we can support and root eachother on! Because we rule. So here we go.
