Fashion Alert: CowCow on Amazon

For our first fashion alert of the year, I am putting the spotlight on CowCow.

As you know, I’m a huge fan of CowCow.  I discovered a cute AF dino dress last year and cannot stop wearing it.  I paid 20 bucks for it and got it on Prime.  I need to spread that fashion goodness around, I’m thinkin!

Get this exact dress from Amazon here.  I’m wearing a 3XL.  It is true-to-size.  I’ve washed it several times, and the print is still bright and colorful.

Outfit of the Day: Hogwarts Bound

For our first post of the year, we present our new Hogwarts Bound outfits of the day!

As you can see, these outfits are unisex.  They can be as feminine or as masculine as you want.  They can both be worn everyday.  This is actually one of my favorite work outfits right now.

Photos taken by the amazing Justin Davidson Photography.  Please book him here.

Ties from Spirit Halloween.  Vests from Goodwill.  Button-downs from Amazon.  My skirt is also from Amazon.  Scout’s coat is actually my Deathly Hallows coat from Hot Topic.  I’m wearing a size 3XL and wear a size 20 for reference.  My shoes are a DIY that I will show you how in a separate post.  Wands and my bag from Universal Studios as was the location for the shoot.

A special shout-out to the Cast Members at Universal for being so accomodating for all of us bloggers and cosplayers shooting at the park!

Happy shopping!

Until next time…

Outfit of the Day: 50s Dress by Steady

Our next outfit of the day is by Steady.

This dress is a lucky find at the Dapper Day Expo last month.

Steady Clothing has a great selection of items, and they are size inclusive!

I love the fit of this dress, not to mention the print.  Who doesn’t love 50s spaceships and robots?!

I added the black belt myself, but I was thinking a bright color belt would be great to add a pop of color if you have one.

Clothing companies like Steady make it easy to incorporate dapper into everyday.  Happy shopping!

Outfit of the Day: Veronica Lodge Cloak

Today’s outfit of the day isn’t so much an outfit as a “look”.  The kiddo and I recently became obsessed with “Riverdale”.  It is the best described as “Twin Peaks” meets “90210”.  The crazy has been turned up to 11 on this show in the best possible way.

More than the crazy plot twists, however, are the fashions!  The fashions on this show are amazing!  I have become obsessed with Veronica’s wardrobe.

I recently purchased the Veronica Lodge cape from Hot Topic.  The cape or cloak is fully lined with Veronica’s name and includes a hood.  The cloak comes in both juniors and plus sizes.

To get that Veronica look, take a swing dress in a darker color and pair it with a skinny belt. Pair it with some kitten heels and a vintage bag.  Accessorize with pearls.

Complete the look with the cloak, and you have instant glam worthy of any Riverdale Vixen!

Blue tartan dress and red/black tartan dress from Amazon.  Cloak from Hot Topic.

Outfit of the Day: Star Lord Cosplay Shirt

For our next outfit of the day, we have a Star Lord cosplay shirt from Kawaiian Pizza Apparel.  Funny name, great stuff!  They have everyday cosplay items for men, women and kids.  Size inclusive.

Although they didn’t have a Star Lord dress (I wish!), I purchased the men’s Star Lord shirt and paired it with a skirt to make my own Star Lord dress!

Grab your own shirt here.  They do run small, so I ordered a 3XL in men’s and it fit really well.  A little big, but I wanted it to be tunic-style.

My jacket is from Walmart.  Necklaces from Amazon.

Outfit of the Day: Ghostbusters Jacket

For our latest outfit of the day, we have the Ghostbusters Jacket from Spirit Halloween.

2018-10-09-20-26-14-953

Yep, you heard that right!  I picked this sweet jacket up from a Halloween store.  Halloween stores aren’t just for decorating your house anymore (Ha!)

2018-10-09-20-26-48-369

The jacket is a men’s jacket, but fits me really well.  I got the XL.  I’m a women’s size 18/20 for reference.

2018-10-09-20-27-28-026

The jacket comes with name tags for all four men Ghostbusters, so you can change them with your mood.  They attach with some pretty sturdy velcro, so they stay put really well.  I went with Egon, because, of course!

2018-10-09-20-28-05-352

I added in a pair of Holzmann glasses and gloves to complete the look.  Good way to “cross the streams” between the men and women ‘Busters (see what I did there *wink*).

Get your own jacket here.
