Weekend Wear: Comic Pants

Weekend Wear: Comic Pants

 I have been really into comic- type things lately, and it just kind of happened out of the blew, but when I say these leggings that reminded me of comics (they are internet tabs though). Embrace those weird stares when you wear these pants in public!

That one Woman

That one Woman

Dress I Bag  I Heels

You know how there is always that woman who you adore and look up too (and no I am not talking about your mother). I am talking like that celebrity or model. Well, for me it is Marissa Mayer (shocker right!?). So I made a littler Marissa Mayer inspired outfit since she was just named 14th on Fortune's 50 Most Powerful Women In Business (love that Sheryl Sandburg is on it, too).

The Big News!

Sooo... I have been working, for a while now, with the amazing Margret, from Crooked Little Pixels on a NEW BLOG DESIGN!  and I am really excited for you guys to see the new version! 

I think Margret did an amazing job and she was so nice and patient with me, I am a very indecisive and nitpicking person and she was amazing, whether is was changing fonts or colors she did it in a timely and amazing fashion. I could not be more happy. 

I highly recommend her if you want to change your blog design to something more professional. She also does Facebook, Etsy, and Tumblr designs. She basically does it all.

Hope you Enjoy the new look! 

Be honest, tell me your opinions...

Little Miss Classy Pants

Classy Pants

J. Crew I Gap  I Ann Taylor

Everyone loves leggings, even if they are those ANNOYING people who keep saying that leggings are not pants [ Note for me to those people: Join the modern times and get over it. They are pants now so GET OVER IT!] they love them too. However, some times people like thing that are a little classier, right? The three pants above are a skinny, black pants (they do come in other colors) that are, essentially, classier versions of leggings that you are wear anytime.

Here are some examples of occasions:
[Note: I used the J.Crew pants for all of these because they were the easiest to work with but all the pants would look the same as the ones above.]

Shorts can go a long way

Shorts can go a long way

I am a person that once school starts, I rarely wear shorts anyone. Yes, I know that certain shorts you can wear with tights and it would still look adorable. It is just not me thought. However, when I saw these shorts and needed to find a way to wear them in the winter! I need these shorts that take the long haul with me throughout the WHOLE year!

Maroon and Emerald

Maroon and Emerald


I love this skirt... and this top... and those boots... wait, is that a maroon blazer?! Yep, love that too. Emerald is increasingly encroaching on ruby as my favorite jewel-tone color. As I am sure you know my now, I love maroon tone- it is such a classy color! Plus, does this outfit remind you of Pippa Middleton?

But What About Burgundy?

But What About Burgundy?

When I saw my first pair of burgundy pants, I thought "I need these", they were about $15 at H & M. However, my conscience stepped in and made me realize I was going to waste my money and never wear them. Every time I step into H & M now, I think about those pants and how I should of bought them because I have been thinking of so many adorable outfits i could pair them with. So the moral of this short story is to BUY those burgundy pants.

Pleats and Polka Dots

Pleats and Polka Dots


You can probably tell, polka dots are big (literally [sometimes] and figuratively). I thought I would do a more dressier post compared to my last few featuring polka dots which were all about polka dot jeans. So, I went hunting and found this skirt- perfect for all, but a little hart to find something to match. Now, this outfit might seem a little risky for a few because the cream and the tan don't look amazing together but I thought you would be bother if I just paired it with a basic white oxford or cream silk tee.

How They Handle {4}


Hey guys! I’m Hollis from the Glitter Gallery ( http://www.glittergallery.blogspot.com ) I’m 13 (I know shocker) and I’m going into eighth grade.


I’m in an advanced program so I’m taking pretty standard classes but at higher levels.  An example: I’m taking Biology and Human Geography so pretty much those are just fancy words for science and social studies ha-ha. I’m also taking Journalism II which I’m really excited for since I loved Journalism I.

This is related to fashion blogging but I really have taken an interest in designing and sketching lately. I’ve even sketched out a wedding dress- Odd I know but I watch plenty say yes to the dress ha-ha.

I’ve always been really athletic, I swam for five years, so this year I’m playing Volleyball which I’m really excited for because I haven’t played a team sport in a while. I also really love to act (how many times am I going to say really..). I’m in a Shakespeare performing group and it will be my third year- I find it fun to play characters from hundreds of years ago too bad I don’t like history.
My favorite thing about school would be the whole social aspect of it which is pretty typical. I love the random laughs in class and being crazy in the halls but I have some really awesome teachers that everyone loves to talk to. I making myself seem really boring here- I like to act out old people and talk to them…wow.

 My favorite thing about blogging is the freedom you get to write about whatever you want and express yourself. It’s also really great to meet other bloggers in the process and make new friends.

I’m not exactly sure what profession exactly but I know I want to work in the whole creative scene whether that means designing, acting, etc. I’m deathly afraid of working in a cubical. As far as living goes either New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles. I’m a city girl- I have to live somewhere major. To achieve my goals as a designer I think blogging is a great start as for acting, my Shakespeare group.

I have no idea what college I want to go to but I’m not worried- I’ve got time to figure it out.

I’m kind of all over the place. Either I’m totally OCD organized or I’m a hot mess. My number one study tip is don’t procrastinate. I study hard and efficiently when it comes to homework and test but for projects I’m what I would call an educated slacker. But when I am organized it’s always because everything has a pouch and a place.

 I’ve never taken ACT’s (thank god).

I love magazines sooo much. All the color and pictures are just spectacular to me but I’m also a fan of reading a good book. I really enjoyed The Hunger Games and Maximum Ride series.

This will be my first official year as a student and a blogger so I’m looking forward to see how I juggle it all. It will definitely be a learning experience.

I love listening to music while I study so pretty much anything catchy.*Cough cough* Call Me Maybe.

I’m obsessed with Instagram and the ABC family app. It allows me to watch Jane by Design and Pretty Little Liars the morning after a new episode comes on which will be so awesome when school starts so I can eat breakfast and watch T.V on my phone.

I really look up to Leandra Medine from The Man Repeller. I think it’s cool how she built her super successful blog off of her quirkiness and had the confidence to share it with the world instead of change herself for other people. She’s definitely brought out the man repeller in many people, which I love.

My favorite quote is “Stay hungry, stay foolish” from Steve Job’s. His whole life story is very inspirational to me personally.

I always have to have extra paper for school, we take a crap ton of notes. For blogging it would be a camera and a sprinkle of inspiration (cheesy?). And lastly a tinted lip balm, I love the Burt’s Bee’s lip shimmer’s they are super moisturizing and have great color pay off.
