In May, my husband and I attended the Lady Gaga concert in Pittsburgh.  This is what I wore.  Most people that go to a Lady Gaga concert usually dress up exactly like her.  I didn't want to wear a costume.  I wanted to still be me but add a little Lady Gaga to my style.

I've had these sequin shorts for years and never had anywhere to wear them.  They are a little skimpy and I wasn't comfortable wearing them shopping or to a play.  So when my husband wanted to go to the concert, I thought these shorts would be perfect for that.

Here are a few shots from that night.  We had a blast.

Looking back at these photos from the summer kind of bums me out.  It was so warm and sunny.  The days were long.  Now, it is chilly and rainy pretty much every day.  The days are getting shorter and shorter.  Fall weather can be depressing sometimes.

Maybe I need to wear more neon's this fall.  I don't think it is possible to be depressed when wearing such bright colors.

Hey, remember me?  Jeez, that was a long break.  I didn't intend to be gone for that long.  Moving and unpacking took way longer than I anticipated.  I still have 2 or 3 boxes in our garage that I haven't unpacked yet.  But, everything is pretty much back to normal now.  So I decided it was time to get back to blogging.  Did you miss me?  Probably not.

Before we closed on our new house, I did manage to take some outfit pictures.  The next few blog posts will be summer outfits.  I'll get back to real time outfits next week.

This outfit was taken a few days before the 4th of July.  So, in honor of Columbus day today, I decided to post it now.  

Thanks for reading!

Sorry I disappeared on you guys.  I have been so busy.  I've mentioned a few times that we are in the process of buying a house.  It is such a long, stressful process.  We are in the home stretch finally.  Now comes the exhausting parts.  Preparing for the move.  I'd love it if you would follow along with my house buying process and how I decorate our new house on my other blog.   You can visit my home decor blog, If It's Not Baroque to subscribe.    

Isn't this the cutest tank top?  Maybe I am partial to chihuahua's because I do have one (I did have another but she passed away a few years ago).  There is nothing cuter than a little chihuahua puppy.  So when I saw this tank top on H&M's website, I had to have it.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Platinum Blonde Adam Wig From Arda Wigs ~ Review

Today, I am reviewing my platinum blonde Adam wig from Arda Wigs.  This is the very first wig I ever bought.  After watching several youtube videos on wigs, I decided to buy a wig from Arda.  I didn't want to spend too much on my first wig so I decided to buy a short wig because they were cheaper.  I had never wore a wig or knew anything about wigs at this point.

Here is the Adam wig on their website

The color I purchased is called Platinum.  Here is a stock image of that particular color.

Here I am wearing the wig.

(All photos taken outside with flash)


As you can see in the photos, the wig has variant shades of blonde and is not shiny at all.  All qualities that make a wig look realistic.  It is a little bit on the yellow side.  When I think of platinum blonde I think of a whiter blonde.

Like all my wigs, it is synthetic.  It isn't as soft as some of my other wigs.  But, it never tangles which is really good.

Arda wigs is located in Chicago so that means that I received the wig really really quickly.  There is a fee for shipping.

Every time I wear this wig, I am told I look like Lady Gaga.  I guess that is meant as a compliment.  I don't think she is pretty at all, but she can wear a wig.  So I guess I am ok with that statement.

I don't wear this wig nearly as much as some of my other wigs, but I do like the wig.  I would definitely buy from Arda Wigs again in the future.

I hope you found this review helpful.  You can find my other wig reviews herehere, here and here.  Thanks for reading!

Black Bowler Hat ~ H&M

Short Blonde Wig ~ Arda Wigs

Lipstick ~ Cover Girl Outlast Lipcolor in Ever Red-dy 507

I wore this outfit to go look at houses a couple weeks ago.  We actually found our dream home that day.  We are in the process of trying to buy it, but the process is so stressful.  I am so worried that someone else is going to buy it or we will find out something about the house that will make us change our mind.

If you have any advice on how to deal with buying a house, I'd love to hear it.  I will be a basket case by the end of this.

Thanks for reading and have a nice day!

I know I have been missing from the blog lately.  We have been extremely busy with so much stuff right now.  Mainly, we are trying to buy a house and it is such a daunting process.  Everything goes so slow.  Needless to say, I am extremely stressed out.  

I haven't wore this short blonde wig for such a long time and I forgot how much I like wearing it.  It is such a different look.  I probably should have bleached my eyebrows.  You can have darker eyebrows with blonde hair, right?  Oh well.  I like the look either way.

Thanks for reading and have a nice day!
