~*Michelle Williams*~ Great Actress. Great Style.

As I get bored with my wardrobe I start to ponder....

Who would I switch wardrobes with if I could choose anyone????

I have already posted about how much I love 

But today I'm lusting over Michelle Williams feminine, retro, pixie-like style.

Her evening-wear choices are UNBELIEVABLE.


Love the romantic fluffy layers of this one....and the cinched waist....and the purple.

Really I wish I could steal her whole look..... is that creepy?

I've always loooved short pixie cuts.... but alas, I don't think I have the face for it.
I had really short hair high school actually.  Everybody loved it but me.
I think my head is too small..... and my face is too big. 
Does that make any sense?

I HAVE, however, gotten over one of my body insecurities that I used to have....
we all have them....
And that was my legs. Well, more my knees.

I have always felt as though my knees looked like they were upside down.
And that, on top of the fact that I have shorter more muscular legs, just made me never want to wear anything shorter than the bottom of my knees.

I mean I wouldn't even where shorts for a long time.

Then I'm not sure exactly what happened and when, but I just somehow got to a point not too long ago when I just got sick of thinking:

"I love these cute shorter dresses on everybody else but I can't wear them..."

I think it started with the discovery 
(or rediscovery if you count the 80s and early 90s) of 

I felt much more comfortable wearing shorter dresses as long as I had a pair of leggings on underneath.

Then slowly this transitioned into being able to wear shorter dresses without leggings.  I guess this happened when I was yearning to wear a certain dress I owned, but it was too hot for leggings.

Don't get me wrong, you still won't see me wearing a super mini skirt/dress because I feel like it would be inappropriate or maybe inhibiting as far as movement goes BUT I have definitely come a long way in terms of accepting my body.

Anyways.... enough about me, this post is really about how drop dead gorgeous Michelle Williams is.

Even her casual style is effortlessly cool.

Now if only I had the money to update my own wardrobe...

More Retro Upcycled Candy... taking the form of a...CHINA CABINET!

In our soon to be new home, there is a half wall up the stairs that will face into the livingroom.
We could have chosen to upgrade it to banisters but, quite frankly, we couldn't afford any upgrades ;)

I had been thinking about how to deal with this half wall.
I was thinking that it may look slightly awkward...

my brilliant husband suggested that it may be a good spot to place a smallish china cabinet.

Since we have a dinning area that doesn't really allow for any more than a table and chairs, I was thinking that there would be no place for a china cabinet.


Now that I know that there is an ideal spot for one, and I don't have one, I have been debating a DIY project... of course.

So, if you follow this blog at all, you'll know that I have been lusting after a 


So as an aqua accent I was hoping to find an antique china cabinet in the style pictured that might need some TLC for a reasonable price.


Of course, I'd like to paint it a nice aqua colour like in the first picture.

If, for some reason, I decide not to go for aqua there are other soft options like white or pink, as pictured.

I doubt that will happen, as I really do have a fondness of the retro/modern look that the aqua gives.

Now I will just have to start shopping for pretty things to fill it up! :)
