Today we received a box full of adorable future outfits from Modcloth! Everything from peter pan collars to bows and octopuses. Below are the items we received:
You can never have too many peter pan collared shirts! And I could never say no to mustard yellow either.
We’ve already wore our new items to the Miami Geek Girl Brunch and they were a hit!
Our local theater is showing a week of Hayao Miyazaki films and we decided to go see My Neighbor Totoro. For this event I was in a sailor/french mood kind of outfit. I wore a black and white stripey shirt from Old Navy, short sleeve blazer from The Limited and bright white Keen sneakers. Added some red accents with my cameo necklace and Betsey Johnson bow purse.
I attended a Blogger Meetup event in Miami Beach this past Saturday. There were enough decadent sweets and mimosas to leave your head spinning. I discovered that I love Contenti Cupcake’s chocolate cream pie with bacon; and I met some fellow comic and paranormal book loving geeks. I can’t wait to collaborate with them and have them as guests on The Izzie & Coco Book Review Show. Many new things are in the works so keep checking in!
I wanted to be comfortable at the event, as usual, so I decided to wear my go to melissa pop bow flats. This exact style is out of stock but similar models are always available. I linked to three different options you can choose from in the Shop The Post; but my favorite one is the Melissa Ultragirl with a black bow. I bought my staple midi skirt at Modcloth and paired it with a blush polka dot top. As always, the phone bag by Betsey Johnson was a huge hit. I received so many compliments about the purse! I was extra flattered because many of the bloggers were fashion bloggers. The phone bag is currently sold out in black but they just released the same in bag in cream and I am seriously considering buying too.
This year’s Dapper Animals Valentine’s Day Photoshoot has the theme: Love is in the Air. The guys opted for muted outfits with pops of color and the girls peppered their outfits with different shades of red, pink & coral.
Peter has a love/hate relationship with this lovely holiday. The cynic in him wants to rant about corporations pushing our emotional buttons to spend money on cards and jewelry. Then again, he melts when he receives a handmade note that reads: “You are the sweetest. Will you be my valentine?” signed with a doodle of donuts & ice cream bars. Hence, Peter decided to go on a fancy Valentine’s date and picked the appropriate outfit with his slim fit, charcoal suit and skinny, silk, blood red tie.Keep reading >>>
One of my favorite colors is coral. So when I saw this Cobble Hill Satchel by Kate Spade New York, I had to have it. Living in South Florida allows me to wear bright colors all year round. So this bag just became my favorite bag. It’s chubby, coral and has gorgeous Kate Spade details. I also love that it has a striped interior and enough room to carry all I want. Keep reading >>>
Ollie decided to give pastels colors a chance and opted for a plaid tie. He made sure to wear classic colors along with his tie to balance the outfit with just a pop of color. Ollie is hopelessly in love with Izzie and will be spending his Valentine’s Day dancing the night away. This British raccoon learned to dance just for her. *sigh* How romantic! Keep reading >>>
Izzie is wearing a fit and flare, navy dress with red polka dots because she loves the nautical look. She also liked the dress because the red highlights give it a romantic touch for Valentine’s Day. The exact dress she is wearing is currently on sale at The Limited. So, take advantage of the lower price while it’s still available. Keep reading >>>
Izzie is wearing a collared turquoise dress with a tiny floral pattern because she knows the floral pattern trend is coming. However, the exact dress she is wearing has been sold out for a while. So, Izzie & I put together a list of dresses inspired by the one Izzie is wearing. Every dress in the post has an essence of the original dress whether it’s the turquoise color, detail buttons or the peter pan collar. Keep reading >>>
Ollie is the tinkerer of the band and so he dresses fashionably geek or geek chic. Therefore the most important item from his ensemble is his Pebble Smart Watch. Nonetheless, he has a classic adorable v-neck sweater with tie outfit that Izzie always falls for. It is definitely worth pointing out that Ollie’s shirt sleeves peek out from under his sweater sleeves just a bit. It is small touches like these that turn a regular outfit into a stylish one. Yes, Ollie is one dapper raccoon this week. Keep reading >>>
