Pick of the Week: Comfy Blazer

Image
I'm getting ready for a work trip next week. It will be a whirlwind. I'm flying very early in the morning in time to land and get to an expo that huge and rather hectic. On the last day, I'm leaving the expo and rushing to the airport for an afternoon flight. I'll be flying in work clothes twice. I'll also be stuffing everything for that trip into a carry on. I have to look professional, but I also need to be able to move around the show floor with clothes that travel well. Queue these comfy blazers from target. They are basic, come in great colors, look professional and feel more like a lightweight sweatshirt than a blazer. And, unlike most inexpensive blazers, they fit nicely because they fabric has a little more give.

Women's Ponte Blazer, Target, $34.99

Let's be bad guys, or -- as is often the case -- the unleashed and misguided scientific experiments of a delusional madman. T-Rex just wants to be loved, you guys. Why are you running away? He'd be happier if he had arms that could hug.

Etsy Shop of the Week: Complements By Jo

It's Halloween! (I know it is not technically Halloween today, but it's October, which is Halloween for the whole month). I love costumes. Sadly, only one day or time of year really allows for them. This is why I love a secret costume--dressing in something inspired by a book, character, film, etc. These cute, nerdy skirts and accessories from Complements By Jo are perfect for such costumes, and for generally fun attire any time of year. Best of all, whatever your fandom, Complements By Jo has something for you from Doctor Who to Star Wars to Supernatural to multi-fandom mash-ups.

Dramatic Makeup

October is the perfect month for anyone who loves a dramatic look. Because of Halloween, you can get away with more in the makeup department than you can the rest of the year. You want to try false eyelashes? Go for it. You want to color your eyebrows? Do it. Color outside the lines with eyeshadow? Why not? Live it up so much in October that people will think black lipstick in November is practically normal.
