VALLEY OF THE DOLLS VIBES With Bloglovin’

Random fact: the inspo behind the new site layout was heavily inspired by Valley of the Dolls.

Anyone read it?

If not, RUN, AND I MEAN RUN, to your nearest Barnes & Noble…eer, Amazon & buy the book.

It’s a freaking CLASSIC. Such a must-read.

Firm believer that every girl in the world should have Valley of the Dolls on her coffee table. So chic it’s stupid.

Anyway, when Bloglovin’ wanted to collaborate on a curated TSC shop my first thought was: ok, what the hell should the theme be?

Basically I took the theme as serious as a heart-attack. I thought about it for months…like a PSYCHOPATH.

& then POOF. During a shower filled with way too much dry brushing the lightbulb moment happened.

VALLEY OF THE DOLLS.

It was just so perfect with the new site REVAMP. It had to be the theme. So there you have it: THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL BLOGLOVIN’ SHOP…all inspired by the classic, pink book.

Ok so here’s the deal: each item was picked with tender, love, & care by me to rep the theme. Think: pink bomber jackets, sexy black skinny jeans, edgy white tees, lonely lingerie, & so much FEMININE LEATHER.

GOOOOOOD DEAL, huh.

The whole thing just reminds me of an independent woman in New York City who has SASS.

Total contrast of masculine & feminine. Everything I love. Let me know what you guys think of my curated collection. Would love to know your thoughts? Anything to add?

Switching gears: this dress is so Valley of the Dolls-ish too. I’m kind of loving this for a hot night out. It’s beautifully beaded & lays super nice. DON’T KILL ME: it’s sold out. I know, BOO. But I found this one & this one ( for eer, $23 bucks! ) that look VERY similar!

Also a huge plus: cuts like this make the tata’s look plump— they really hold them up.

I paired this with oversized black sunglasses, patent leather pumps, & of course, had to throw some white in there: a tiny coin purse.

Really I would wear this outfit every Friday.

It’s just one of those outfits that makes you feel spicy.

Apparently I’m all over the place in this post, but what’s really new anyway?

Because there’s more: EPISODE 4 of TSC HIM & HER PODCAST is live! LISTEN HERE. YouTube video to follow tomorrow for all you Android users.

& bear with us because we’re new to this & getting the hang of it.

All your feedback is very important; I want to create a super interactive, fun, sassy podcast. Nothing happens overnight. It’s a constant work in progress. When I look back to my first month of blogging, it’s rather interesting! HA.

Anyway, check out Episode 4, each week we hope to improve. IMPROVEMENT in anything is so important. Slow & steady wins the race right? Sometimes it’s difficult to remember Rome wasn’t built in a day.

I’m one of those people that wants everything just right, just perfect, immediately. I’m learning slowly that there’s something pretty fucking cool about evolving slowly.

Each week, the podcast should be better than the last! We’re watching all your feedback VERY carefully! Your opinions, Snap messages, e-mail are a HUGE part of growing TSC brand. Keep them coming.

Really Just My Ideal Valentine’s Dress ( & SHOES )

Boy oh boy, there’s nothing more I love than contrast.

LIKE NOTHING THOUGH.

Especially when it comes to home decor, hair color, & FASHION.

So it’s absolutely NO surprise that this Valentine’s Day you can find me contrasting feminine prints with tennis shoes.

Yes, that’s right, TENNIS shoes. YOU KNOW, like sneakers.

Because heels are predictable & boring for V-Day.

Yawn, yawn, yawn. Trust me, add a tennis shoe with your flirty maxi & you’re good to go.

So side story here: we were eating at Sugarfish ( have you guys been? It’s really the best fucking sushi ever. Think like perfectly warm rice with the best cut of raw fish, a cold beer, & just melt in your mouth goodness ).

AND SUDDENLY I SPOTTED THESE SHOES.

When I looked up to see who was rocking them, it was Hailey Baldwin. AKA Justin Beiber’s latest hook-up, you know the one with the rad braids? Friends with Kendall & Kylie? If you don’t know who I’m talking about, stalk her Instagram & you will get it.

She’s so on point, style-wise. I LOVE.

Anyway, she was rocking these Adidas kicks with a black long sleeve tight dress. So naturally I immediately bought both, the dress AND the shoes, HA! Really though, it looked SOOOO cute on her ( if you’re wondering, here’s the exact one I bought because it looked JUST like the one she was wearing ).

And now I just can’t take these white sneakers off.

( Guys, I have real deal love for these white beauties. Not sponsored, just realness ).

Really, I’ve been wearing them EVERYWHERE.

How 7th grade-chic are they? So TBT in the best way possible. If Michael steps on these ones, I’ll stab him. I KID, I KID.

I mean we already know I have sick, peculiar obsession with white shoes. White Oxfords, white Converse, white pumps, JUST WHITE OUT. So I’m sure you’re not surprised here?

SO changing directions: how fun is this flirty dress?! For Valentine’s? It blows in the wind perfectly, weird, but it does. THE SLEEVES are beyonddddd. Anyway, you certainly can count on me wearing this get up for Michael on Sunday.

& maybe if he’s lucky I’ll even provide coconut oil ; ).

LET’S BE CLEAR: Getting Dressed Up Can Be Quite The Chore, No?

I mean there’s the outfit, the hair, the makeup, the perfume/skin care/shaving, blah, blah, blah, blibbity, blah. So obviously when I find a go-to outfit that’s easy, I fully commit.

By fully commit, I mean sometimes I wear it more than once. You know, more than once a week. This outfit is one of those outfits.

Relaxed hole-y jeans, a cropped sweater with a 90’s vibe baby doll tank ( such a good Urban Outfitter’s find! ), & a flannel around the waist…and I’m good to go. And if you know me, you know 99.9 percent of the time I’m wearing white shoes.

And can we talk about hair? Because lately I’m into the NO F’s GIVEN hair. This means buh-bye perfectly coifed, curled outward hair…Taking it a step further & throwing it into a low pony is always casual chic too. Add some thin, delicate hoop earrings & I’m feeling it.

I’ve said it once ( twice? ) & I’ll say it again: ponytails & messy buns are red hot. They’re effortless & different while maintaining an I-don’t-care-what-you-think attitude.

I LOVE.

DO YOU?

Anyway, lately this kind of outfit with sex pot hair is just doing it for me.

For some reason I feel like the outfits we’re all committed to just really need to be dry cleaned & we’re entirely too lazy to do so. It’s really just easier to wear it 2 to 3 (or 4?) times a week.

Are you fully committed to a go-to outfit? Would love to hear.
