Fashion and Frivolity

Because my life doesn't completely revolve around food - okay, maybe it does ... but I do love fashion and being a little frivolous too. Some of my favourite finds this spring/summer include:

The cutest shoes ever!

From some random shoe store in Manhattan
I love skulls and fashion, as you can see in the scarf I got this spring:

Alexander McQueen (Black and White)
And the shirt I bought this summer (there is a skull cut out of the back):

You can get these shirts from a lot of stores - just google to find it.
White gold may be very popular, but I am way more into yellow gold.  I fell in love with this vintage ring in NY in April, and couldn't leave without it:


More recently I snagged this pretty necklace:

COACH - available online
My favourite fashion item of all has always been handbags.  I picked up a summery one back in April (the reddish/orange one) and a fall bag while I was in Vegas in July.  The big one is available at all times, but the smaller one was only out for a limited time in the colour shown; you can still buy it in other colours.

Louis Vuitton

Other frivolous items I am loving right now ...

Rihanna's Perfume "Rebelle"

Bacon flavoured Vodka that I just found!  (Naturally flavoured)
And because this is a food blog, I should leave you with a food picture.  I spent the morning at the farmers' market with a girlfriend of mine and picked up these beauties.  


The most fashionable vegetable around, in my opinion.

Like fashion posts?  Check out my sister's posts on How to Wear a Cropped Bustier, Wedding Style, and her Beauty Secrets for Summer.  I may have sicker dance moves than her (ahem, the unicorn), but she has better fashion sense for sure.  

What fashions are you loving this spring/summer?  Have you started buying clothes/accessories for the fall?  Have you purchased anything frivolous lately?

I want more fashion posts like these, Jolene! I've been getting more and more interested in fashion lately. I just wish I have the $$ to keep up with my interest, ya know? Hee hee.

I've never been particularly enamored with skull, but your heel makes it look so...smexy. :)

I have been coveting those Coach jewels! I'm on a shopping freeze for awhile, so I can't say too much or I'll tempt myself into slipping ;)

Love the skullstuffs. :) I am not even slightly a handbag person (most of mine have been made for me by friends), though I'm very into that ring. Nice and blingy!

Usually my frivolous purchases are food-related, ha ha! Although I love perusing value village. I don't know if that counts as frivolous though. :)

Bacon vodka? You're crazy!! I hope they make it extra crispy, just for you ;)

I am a huge skull fan :) When we go to Salem, MA for Halloween there are a lot of skull items. A few years ago I found a cute scarf.

I LOVE purses! Coach is my favorite.

It has been so hot here this summer, so I have been wearing lots and lots of dresses. I did buy a cute navy dress yesterday that I will wear for work. I am really excited about it as it has a fun neckline and I just love buying new dresses. :)

I am partial to the classic style. Luckily, my MIL keeps hooking me up. :)
