{ covet } the pink ladies

Are you too pure to be pink?

This shopping guide was inspired by several things all aligning with one another;

  • A hankering to re-watch Grease has grasped me lately as I’ve been seeing some pink lady lovin’ gifsets on tumblr
  • Being tasked to make a theme post with my interpretation of ‘girl gang’ with my #untamedstyle virtual girl gang
  • Seeing these kickass, cotton candy, studded leather jackets all over instagram and tumblr, and they’re making me drool.

All arrows pointed to me deciding to modernize The Pink Ladies uniform!

Now since Killstar co. only really services XL & sometimes XXL I figured I’d add in this perfect substitute from Addition Elle.  That way you can DIY it up to your own liking.  I never thought I’d want to own a baby pink moto before, but HOLY CRAP, it’s risen to one of my top most coveted pieces!! { hey, it’s my birthday coming up in less than a month, if anyone wants to treat me ;-) ..ha! yeah right }

I threw in some cute girl gang stickers by one of my favourite indie/tumblr artists, a take no guff pin to adorn your jacket or bag as well as a pocket mirror to fix your lipstick.  Some ridiculously awesome holographic platform shoes for stomping the patriarchy, some high waisted, distressed shorts, flashy cat eye shades, a couple options for bad babe tops and some crystal knuckle dusters for fending yourself when you get in hot water!

ASOS curve fit & flare coat and ASOS curve pleated leggings // margot meanieTo be honest, it wasn’t actually cold enough to be wearing my winter coat.  It’s been a pretty balmy winter here.  We’ve had some chilly nights and we had a day or two of snow back in November, but it wasn’t more than a slight dusting.

Often when people hear I’m in Canada they hope I’m keeping warm, which is kinda funny as that is exactly why I moved to Vancouver on the Pacific coast away from the freezing temperatures of Calgary just on the other aide of the Rocky mountains.  Vancouver has very mild winters, though they are wet ones.  Sometimes the wet seeps into your bones and 0°C can feel a whole lot colder.

But this year hasn’t had the thermometer drop below 5°very often, in fact, when I took these photos, it was 11°C {52°F}!

I just couldn’t resist grabbing some photos though!  I’ve been sick for the better part of a month now and I’m finally feeling back on track.

So while I was feeling better I kind of forced my husband to take photos.  He’s such a trooper, as he’s not feeling as well as I am yet, but he still managed to photograph three different outfits for me all while I got my bossy pants on telling him what I wanted photographed and how I wanted them framed.

He’s pretty wonderful!

Though it is not very cold out, it does get a bit chilly at night, which is when I would normally wear this coat, but nighttime does not make for good photos.

Here I am wearing my ASOS curve fit & flare coat and my ASOS curve pleated leggings.  This pair of leggings is about two years old now, so they’ve lost all of their leathery look they had when I first got them, but I still love them to bits {like literally, I will wear them until they fall part!}.  Though it is great that they have been a staple in the curve line so I really should get on buying a couple of back up pairs!

The shoes are thrifted and totally fabulous! These photos don’t quite capture it, but they are faux suede with mirco sparkle buttons attaching the straps…they are simply divine.

I am unabashedly, a HUG Harry Potter nerd!!

In fact, such a Potterphile, that my very first blog post on here about 10 months go was a about a Harry Potter party that I hosted and went full tilt on! {please excuse how long winded it is, it was my first time back to blogging for seven or so years!! oh and I first named this blog Miss Meanie goes to Paris, which was equally long winded, so I changed that pretty quick!}

I have a huge collection of cool HP bric-à-brac, most of which I brought back last year after visiting the most magical place on earth, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! We have most of it out on display, but we really want to get  a better shelf to display all our curious & magical items.  The wands are still in their boxes and we’d really like to get a stand to display them more nicely.

It had occurred to me, that although I had mentioned purchasing this top back in March when I was down at ECCC, I had never actually taken any outfit shots with it!

It’s actually one of the staples in my wardrobe right now, on account of it being A) a crop top B) the most lightweight soft material ever C)being black & D) it’s wonderfully nerdy! I actually altered this a bit.  I took the straps up, as I hate big gaping armholes that show off my bra, which also made it a shorter crop top, which worked well for me!

//what i wore//

I wouldn’t normally wear the kitty ears out with this outfit, but I was in a fun mood.  It also occurred to me, that I never smile in any of my photos, so that has been remedied in this post!

//deathly hallows crop – android sheep, they only have one size, but it fits pretty well, if just a tad snug which makes the lines look rippled

//pleated skater skirt & geometric cuff – forever21+

//skinny belt w/gold cross & suspender tights – ASOS curve, sadly these did not live as long as I had hoped.  The thinner nylon on the top is just full of runs {or ladders a they call them in the UK}

//shoes – thrifted

//moon pendant necklace – a gift from my mom & step dad.  The image is of the phase the moon was in when I was born!

 

Well, that is my witchpoo look!  You know, with it being Wednesday and the whole, on “Wednesday’s we wear black” that seems to be a new mantra of mine!

Are you a crazy potterphile too?  Or are you part of any other fandom??  I’m kind of a fangirl for a lot of fandoms! Let me know what you’re into!!

// friday i’m in love #26 //

Friday I’m in Love is a weekly feature where I curate my top 3 looks I have seen online each week.  Though I will feature many plus size looks, I will also feature looks including straight sizes and gentlemen if the feeling strikes! 

// Sian from Forever Fabulous in Bows // What I Wore: leopard print cardi & sheer skirt


Sian from forever Fabulous in Bows // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com Sian from forever Fabulous in Bows // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com

Look at how gorgeous this sheer maxi is!! Just LOOK!!

It’s not a surprise that I am a HUGE fan of black chiffon and I absolutely LOVE maxi’s as well!  What a perfect summer look!

I adore the long line cardi too, and who doesn’t love a classic, over sized, designer bag to make the perfect “yes, I’m effortlessly chic” statement?

Just gorgeous!

Dionne from Superzie my Fashion // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com Dionne from Superzie my Fashion // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com

Oh my goodness, how fabulous does Dionne look in this absolutely gorgeous dress from the ASOS Salon line???  I have been wanting to write a piece on being a modern flapper girl with the Salon dresses as the key items!

She just looks beyond glamorous!  She got the look spot on and I’m super jealous that I don’t have this entire ensemble in my closet right meow!!

The jewelry she chose is perfect and the shoes are a lovely contrast to the dark dress, but still have just as much glitz and that purse is so much fun!

Ashley from this is Ashley Rose // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com Ashley from this is Ashley Rose // friday i'm in love #26 // margotmeanie.com

Just look how pretty & posh Ashley is looking in these photos.  I adore the sheer polka dot blouse, the breezy, pleated midi skirt and the perfect pops of red in her shoes, handbag, skinny belt & lippie!

She looks like a perfect lady, completely pulled together and totally on trend with the sheer elements!

wishlist // ASOS monochrome summer // margotmeanie.com

I just have to start with saying how ridiculously happy I am to have photoshop back!!  I was reeeeally missing making these wishlists so very much!

I also had the idea to redo my blog space a bit, but had to wait until I had access to photoshop again to do up the changes.  I’m super happy with the results, what do you think?

Secondly, I am LOVING what ASOS has in shop right now!

I’m a complete & total fan of monochrome and I love all the options they have.  I know these looks aren’t 100% monochrome as there is a teeny amount of colour in the holographic clutch and the lining of the Victorian lace blouse, but I think it’s subdued enough to add some fun to an overall monochrome look.

I’ve been loving all the ropers around, but haven’t felt like I’d found the right one for me just yet and I think I have finally landed on it!  I love the buttons and it seems super light and breezy.  How cute would it look with that white blazer??  This look is perfectly edgy, especially adding in the masculine studded shoes.  Though you could femme it up with adding those every so bad ass laser cut  heels.

I’m always on the fence when it comes to very open back dresses, as I absolutely love how they look but am apprehensive of them on myself as I always have to wear a bra, but in the case of this sheer chiffon cage back dress by Truly You, I think the design easily lends itself to be worn with a blatant bra showing ala Carrie Bradshaw.  And look how pretty and flowy it is!! Add some rock in roll sandals and I’m set!

I. Love. This. Skirt!

But I’m also scared of it, because it is white and me and white are often a messy match.  But its so pretty and I am loving the sheer panel.  I’ve been seeing variations of this skirt all over the blogosphere and it just makes me want it more.  It’d be like a test, can be grown up enough to wear this and not spill?  A challenge I am willing to take on!

I think what I love about all the shoes featured, is though they are all fairly different, they could easily go with each outfit and change the feel instantly!
