OOTD: Pretty in Pink

Hello divas! It has been a rainy week so far. Fall has recently arrived, and it seems that winter is inevitably not far behind. I decided to mix one of my favorite summer dresses (mainly because it reminds me of Pretty in Pink), with my new absolute obsession of a fall piece! I love this skull blazer and I keep finding really interesting ways to wear it. PLUS it is now officially October and that makes me even more excited to wear skulls. Bring on Halloween!

Dress: ASOS Curve
Jacket: Torrid
Belt: Addition Elle

Love you more than Barbie loves her dream house.

OOTD: Pink Mini

Hello my divas! I went out tonight to a 'black and pink' themed birthday party. (what a wonderful theme!!) We had a fabulous dinner, complete with pink cosmos, and I got to take my pink mini skirt for a night out. I have had a few emails of my fellow divas asking me if I wear skirts/dresses without leggings. I quite often wearing leggings, tights, lace pantyhose etc ... and you have noticed! =)

I do wear things without tights, but to be honest, it isn't that often. Because I am short in height, I find that a lot of things hit me at odd points on my legs and I don't like the way it looks - just personal preference. Plus my legs are extremely pale white no matter the season! We all have comfortable zones and leggings are FOR SURE mine. So I decided to gather some courage, take my own advice, and wear a skirt that I have been dying to wear forever. I paired it with my favorite sparkle vest to give me some extra skip in my step.

Skirt: Old Navy
Vest: MXM
Top (underneath): Addition Elle
Necklace/bangles: Addition Elle
Hair bow: Le Chateau
Heels: Payless

Love you more than I love breaking down barriers.

OOTD: Bubblegum Goth

Hello Divas! Today was a gorgeous day outside and I decided to wear my bubblegum pink capris! I was so excited when Addition Elle came out with my favorite line of jeans in colored capris. <3

I paired it with my goth skull blazer from Torrid, which I am pretty much dying over every time I look at. It adds some edge to an outfit, but the light fabric and great cut are stylish without being too gothic. Perfect for moi! And my awesome, although slightly too high, floral print heels =) I enjoy mixing and matching fabrics, especially in the summertime.


Jean capri pants: Addition Elle
Blazer: Torrid
Tank top (underneath): Penningtons
Heels: Beyond the Rack
Necklace + Bracelet: Thrifted
Bangle bracelet: Addition Elle


Love you more than I love mixing patterns.

OOTD: Torrid Affair

Hello divas! I am happy to report that I am back in action in the blog-o-sphere. A big thank you and hugs to all my friends, family and readers that have supported my 'break'. And I am so happy with everyone that has continued to follow my everyday FATshion journey on instagram @fiftyshadesofmarjor. Part of being a positive, confident and happy person ... is also knowing when you need to step away and focus on yourself. I have been through a trying couple of months and I needed to concentrate all my energy on building myself back up. I appreciate all of the emails and wonderful thoughts I got from all of you! <3

My bestie and I recently went to Vegas and Disneyland, and although we had some wonderful adventures, the best part had to be the shopping! (Your shocked I'm sure!!) And one of my favorite stores, Torrid, did not disappoint. I picked up several pieces from them and this dress has to be one of my favorites!

Dress: Torrid
Lace leggings: Torrid
Cropped jacket: Addition Elle
Necklace: Aldo Accessories
Ring: Gifted
Purse: Material Girl collection
Shoes: Wal-Mart

I love this dress. The bright colors and light fabric make it perfect for summer time. It also has pockets, which everyone knows are my weakness, and for those ladies that like to go strapless - they are removable! The lace leggings are absolutely to die for. They fit just right and have the perfect amount of stretch to them. I am a huge fan of Torrid footless tights/leggings because they are always a great fit and they have numerous patterns, textures, fabrics and colors. Cant get enough!!

Love you more than I love buying new nail polishes.

OOTD: Bringing May Flowers

This is an absolutely stunning jacket that I picked up a couple years ago. Its been hiding away in my closet,
and with spring finally here, I decided to take it out on the town. The flowers on this fabric look hand painted, and every time I wear it people want to touch it to see how it feels! I love wearing this jacket to business meetings because I feel structured and confident, but it still has a flirty sense of wonder to it.

Jacket: Kristin Miles
Pencil skirt: Penningtons
Tank top (underneath): Addition Elle
Bangles/necklace: Addition Elle
Heels: Rocket Dog

Love you more than April showers love to bring May flowers.

Inspiration for the day:

Your body is like the house you grew up in as a child. 
It is full of love, faith, courage, hope, strength and survival.
Don't you dare try to burn it down.

Love you more than childhood memories love to come out and play.
