Nonblogular



Hello! Not yet ready to chat casually about my most recent hole plugging project, but fortunately I have some other quite interesting things to discuss.  First matter of business: Last week Paige proposed a challenge.  She called it something like "Ugly can be pretty too" or "style this piece of shit" or "make this odd thing look cool" or something great like that.  Paige even made a page for this little style challenge, (which I can't seem to find right now but I will, ah here it is!  All the details and how you can join in!) Of course I accepted her challenge!  Of freaking course!  and I came out of my nonblogular stupor to play around with it and show you what I came up with!  (I JUST made that word up, Nonblogular.  Use it if you want. It means specific things you do that would not end up on your blog for whatever reason. Used in a sentence: "Oh shit man, this is totally nonblogular, don't even worry about it.") Anyways, this is my solution for a somewhat poofy, nearly impractical (its super hot) but strangely incredibly beautiful blouse. I folded the button down collar into itself, belted the poop out of it, and rouged it up with my cutoffs (this is how I feel about these cutoffs) and some lace up boots.  The hat brought the magic. According to the terms of the challenge, I am now to identify the new challenger, and I choose (since she told me she would kill me if I didn't choose her, and I half way believe her (just joshin!) is the magical Merl!  Good luck Merly two shoes!  You have a whole freaking list of eager beavers awaiting this lovely thing so you know what to do!

Second order of business: I would like to offer a giveaway here.  Well, actually the lovely people at DesignerApparel.com (I know you have heard of them, and if you are so inclined to purchase great designer stuff, from Betsey Johnson,  to Derek Lam, to Kate Spade, go there, seriously, you won't regret it) would like to offer you something on my blog that you have a chance to win, but I will probably end up buying since I am not qualified to win it (how freaking fair is that!) and the item is this amazing:
Alex and Ani Feather Bangle Set.  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post before, hmm. . .  lets say this Saturday (July 24) at midnight (PST).  I'll wrap it up and announce the winner this Monday.  Good luck people.  . .  Luckies.  At least you are lucky if you live in the states.  Ya, you have to be a USA resident. So sorry if you are not,  but hey, you are in good company since I am not eligible either. You can still leave a comment I will just not put your comment in the winner pool.  You will still be a winner in my book though.

Blouse: The ugly pretty challenge thingy
boots, hat,  belt: thrfted
Shorts: cut from AE pants

You make ugly look good girl!
I am obsessing over anything feather detailed so this bracelet is too cool!

Sidewalk Chalk said...

I really like the juxtaposition of the toughness of the boots and hat and the prettiness of the blouse. You did a really good job in making this something that works with your closet.

That bracelet is really pretty!

Swalvs said...

Then I'm already a winner :( But getting nothing :( But I've got you in my life, so I'm already very lucky! So good to see you again! I was a bit worried though... Oh and if you didn't say that's that shirt, I'd never get that! You styled it soooo goooood! Miss you :*

Sally said...

Your cutoff shorts are too cool. And this feather piece is fantastic!

Super cute bangles- just the right amount of quirk for an outfit.

Love your blouse too!

Love your antique look. I'm a big vintage fan - especially vintage jewelry. LOVE this bracelet...posh.

EFG said...

oooh - pretty! yes please!

casual ambiguity said...

Gorgeous bracelet (count me out of the giveaway though, le sigh). I have this thing for feathers...

You know, if you hadn't reminded me about Paige's challenge thingamajig, I don't think I'd have realised it was this top! It looks...normal! and cute! kudos christina!!

(...whenever I say kudos it makes me giggle, it's a personal joke lol. lame as heck word but i can't resist it.)

Jules said...

I am not usually a jewelry girl, but I LOVE this piece!! What a great design.

retro.city.lights said...

You always know how to make the best out of the worst.

Also, looking forward to reading on your hole plugging...project.

tomorrowneverknowsfashion said...

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww non US resident here. I'm glad I'm still a winner in your books tho. what if I cut off all my platinum blonde? will I still do it for you????
(its actually getting shorter in 3 weekssss)
K where was I? Oh yes, gooooood job on the top. I was scrolling through your pictures and something jumped out at me and then I figured out that it was paige's uglygorgeous top!
K so I just went and read your cutoff shorts story and i got all watery eyed. awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. they need to make a movie about you cuz you seem to have so many awesome stories. it could be very thelma and louise-eske. i just watched it the other day, that might be why im thinking of it. you could be thelma at the end in cutoff shorts and a sleeveless black shirt with an eagle or something on it and that hat. I will obviously play Louise, and we can drive off into the grand canyon. except you will have to drive since I don't even have a license. Lucky for my dad I didnt develop ANYTHING until I was about 17. And I'm still waiting for my hips to come in... In other words, in daisy dukes, I would look like a 13 year old. despite the fact im twice that age.
Is there a limit to how much I can write in a comment? cuz this is getting lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng and I'm not even trying to win the pretty bracelet.
the end.

Giselle said...

Tha bracelet is fabulous. <3

Katie Gruber said...

cute cute cute cute cute bangles. Love the challenge too...I have this super old ("vintage") loose knit sweater vest that my great grandma made that would work well for this sort of thing - I can't bring myself to get rid of it (family connection) but haven't found a way to wear it (because it's kind of ugly). Hmm...must think...

Thank you!

You make that blouse look fantastic! I don't think I would have looked twice at it if I had seen it on the rack.

And that bracelet is fabulous!

Oh wow... I would not have any idea what the HEEE-ll I would do with that top. But it looks really great on you! I mean you could probably style anything. Ass-less chaps? You could totally do that!

Please put that bracelet on my wrist, now okay thanks!

I'm totally diggin this braclet!

Rhi said...

Well now is definetly a good time to leave a comment. My sister suggested I check out your blog, and now I just can't get enough of it! You are amazing at what you do, you take pieces from thrift stores that I wouldn't look twice at and turn them into insanely cute outfits. That eye you have is the equivelent to Rachel Zoe but costs a lot less! I look forward to see what you come up with everyday. Keep it up girl!!

Christyne said...

That bracelet is precious!!! I'm sure would be a great piece to share between my 3 sisters and I!!!

Jenna said...

First, love love love how you styled the blouse. Like that, it's something even I'd wear.
p.s. the bracelet is goregous too!

I love how you wore the blouse! Looks fresh and a little edgy, but not like you're trying too hard. Bracelet is lovely, I love jewelry with feathers on it!

Madilyn Peiper said...

The bracelet is lovely! However that blouse looks slightly itchy!

Heather said...

I've been anonymously following your blog for a little while (just discovered it a few weeks ago)and now that I can win a prize, I thought I would finally comment, haha (J/K sorta). That bracelet is beautiful!

I really do love your style though, you seem to have a knack for putting outfits together. It's inspiring :)

veflexra said...

That shirt is far from ugly on you. I was looking at it thinking how I need to spice things up more in my closet. I could never do that neckline tho! You have guts! Count me in for the bracelet. It looks awesome.

Courtney said...

Love what you did with the shirt! True-Second Skin style! Love the bangles too.

As a girl that grew up in Justin Ropers I love seeing them styled in a non western fashion (good lord, could that sound any dorkier!?) The bracelet is cool too.....

I don't think its possible for you to have ugly clothes. You always make everything seem beautiful. Its your gift!!

Love the bracelet!

You have such a great, easy, and low-key style. I can't wait to log on each day and see what you're wearing. Always an inspiration!

It takes skill to pull of a blouse like that. I commend you!

I hope I win the bracelet too. Thanks!

Someone gave those boots to a thrift?

I'm OK with the blouse (a bit lacy for me) but the boots are making me turn green.

The Daily Fashionista said...

Wow, put up a giveaway and you get millions of comments! I totally in love with this look. It's like prairie girl meets gold miner. It's perfect and you can rock the hell out of some cutoffs.

Denise said...

wonderful. i love the femininity of the blouse in contrast with the ruggedness of the cutoffs and boots.

Katie said...

What a cute bracelet. I also really like that shirt with that belt! I didn't think it was ugly at all.

Stephanie said...

I loved the idea of the swap when Paige wrote about it on her blog, and I love the way you styled it! I was looking at the pictures thinking "Oh cute shirt, probably a recent find at a thrift... wait... that's Paige's ugly shirt!"
You make it look great. And great giveaway! The bracelet is just gorgeous.

Sara said...

I was JUST looking at the lonely bracelet I am wearing and thought to myself, I need to get more bangles to wear! Love the feather in the mix. Also I would love to find a pair of boots like the ones you are rocking in this post- lovely!

Alison said...

I love love love those bangles. And I like the way you styled the ugly blouse, I cant wait to see how the others style it as well.

Heather A. Phillips said...

ah, i recongized the top as soon as the page loaded... the thing is getting prettier and prettier each time it gets styled... and that braclet is divine.

I would call that a success at the challenge, and a fun kick off to Paiges "shin-dig"

Love the bracelet, and I've been trying to incorporate more jewelery into my wardrobe...

amanda said...

just letting you know, you styled the shit outta this shirt. for realz.

Morgan and Lua said...

It is not even fair what you just did with that shirt. Maybe I will figure out a way to wear it as pants...

I hope you're getting your head on straight over there, or maybe you're helping get some one else's head straight, or maybe the damn is being build, or reinforced, something like that. I'm not sure, but I hope it's good news soon for you.

maggeygrace said...

This might be one of my favorite outfits I've ever seen and definitely one of my favorites on you!!! I love the "country" feel with the boots and lace. PERFECTION. I'm gonna go find this on chictopia and favor it...right this second..!

Vanessa said...

Oh wow, this is too cute! I love how delicate and pretty it is.

patrick said...

hey, thanks for the nice comments. i added you to my blog and you inspired me to post a blog about blogging.

love your style and what all these women are doing and sharing. it's very cool.

naomi said...

poor canada getting the short end of the stick, we are so close to america, we should be included too! haha!

I love this idea of trying to style ugly things. Its one of my favorite challenges. I find myself asking friends if certain pieces are ugly or not because my sense of style has completely gone off the rocker.

naomi.

Haiku Ambulance said...

DUDE!!!

I didn't even recognize it as "THE shirt". I can't believe it!

You constantly, always and forever amaze me.

And as much as I really do love you: I would beat the poop out of you for those boots.

And I want you to know that I loved that story about your cut-off prostitute shorts. Funny and very endearing.

I cannot motherflipping wait to see Miss Merl style this piece of craziness!!!

(and by the way- I'm pretty sure my Dad is over the moon right now. Just tell your Dad how popular he'll become with the 20-30something fashion bloggers. HAHAHA!)

Lovely bangle.

Rach is Ordinarily Urbane said...

You gave that blouse a totally new life, amazing!

Becca said...

Ok I tried this already, but the comment form freaked out, so if it comes up twice I'm terribly sorry to spam your comments....

1. I'm amazed by you ladies, you and Paige managed to make this blouse much less hideous than I initially thought it was! It's even *gasp* pretty! Just goes to show you it's all in the styling.

2. Sign me up for the giveaway because this bracelet is fan-freaking-tastic! I'll be crossing my fingers and rubbing my lucky rabbit foot (if I had one...)

Kelly said...

that bracelet its beautiful..the cold metal and the airy feather are a match made in heaven!

Cassie said...

What an amazingly gorgeous bracelet. wow. that one is a showstopper. so subtle yet so powerful.

Belle said...

That blouse reminds me of the 70's bridesmaid dress that the "New Dress A Day" gal used to make a pretty top like yours! Love it.
Ooooooh, I LOVE FEATHERS!!
Probably started when I was a kid, wishing I was Native American, sigh.

Is it really weird that I knew your cut-off were American Eagle because of the pocket design? Once a 7th grader obsessed with the mall, always a 7th grader obsessed with the mall...

Megan Rose said...

I'd say you did ugly the right way!
If that makes sense. haha.
uhmm.. it turned out pretty freakin good. That would be a translation for you. :]
It's actually a really cool idea. Something interesting and challenging. hmm. I'm getting my gears turning, here.


Oh, and the bracelet is amazing!
Sucks that you can't enter the giveaway. :(

elledaniels said...

I can't believe that THAT is a collared shirt...freakin fantastic. My natural instinct would've been to pair that shirt with a flowy velvet skirt, pointed hat, and a dude in some chainmail. So props to you for taking a Renaissance Faire-esque shirt and making it cool.

Elle said...

This bracelet is amazing! The mix of pretty and tough makes it perfect. I'd wear it all the time!

Christina said...

Such an awesome giveaway.
This shirt is all sorts of wrong but somehow you make it work! Well done!

The bangle set is awesome. I'm new to your blog, and I'm wondering if you've ever explained how you keep your hair up under the hats. I love the faux-bob you have goin' on.

I love your restyle. I'm excited about tracking this blouse through the blogosphere.

The bracelets are beautiful! I would wear them all the time.

Holly Hart said...

Gorgeous bracket! Also..i want say that I love how faithfully you style your thrift items. So many people /bloggers sell out and only sell new items. You demonstrate so much more style and taste by using thrift items so consistently.

Regina said...

Cute bracelet. Would love to own it. Thanks.

Nnenna said...

Waponi said...

I always really like your purses! Since reading this blog I already look at things I see in thrift stores differently, so this challenge will be interesting to follow. And the bracelet is ridiculously good.

Liv said...

Ah, crap. I love the bangle set but alas I'm Canadian! At least I've expanded by vocabulary to include "nonblogular" so I still feel like a winner!

I've got an international giveaway for another lovely piece of jewelry going on though if you'd like to enter!

I have since starting thinking...I want YOU Bracelet. I will cross my fingers and toes for the rest of the week!!!

FashionTheorist said...

I love odd Victoriana, so I don't know how ugly that blouse is to begin with - but I love the way you styled it! The ruggedness of the boots and cutoffs balance the ruffly girliness of the blouse, and you're right about the hat. It does bring the magic!

The bracelets are awfully cute too. It looks like they slide or adjust a bit?

Nat! said...

Ahh they are amazing! & great job with the shirt!

Dina said...

Well done! You took pretty ugly to pretty pretty.

Must. Have. Bracelets.

Kelley said...

haha, I actually think the blouse is really gorgeous!
And I work with birds, so of course I'm a fan of all things feathered ;)

Shopaholic? said...

A feather tickles the intellect, adds speed at the heel of the willing heard, adorns the boas of those who despise the shackles of naked living, and provides a comfortable bed for those who find heaven on earth. ;)

Lucy Marmalade said...

Looove that feather detailing!

That is NOT that shirt! I just saw that post the other day and was wondering what you'd do with you. I didn't doubt you, I promise! Holy wow! See, brought me out of lurker forever status because I am amazed at how you made that shirt look! I have to say it again. WOW! I'm loving the boots too. And the feather on that bracelet is amazing too.

Liz said...

Aww, that bracelet is amazing! As are the sleeves on your blouse...so cool.

Maria said...

Love the bracelet!

I love the boots too... I will am on the search for brown worn boots like that. I used to have a pair years and years ago that I wore until the soles fell apart. Ever since I parted wtih them I haven't been able to find anything as close. The ones your wearing are teh closest thing I have seen. They have to be worn/torn : ) Thats just how I like it.

Lidia said...

You make anything look pretty!!! Sorry about the leak. Hope it gets fixed soon!!
