Project Eighteen Motorcycle Jeans, Madras Skirt and Being Sexy

"Sexy?  We're not supposed to say that,"
Princess Sparkles said as she heard the word in a song on the radio.
A few weeks ago she had asked me what that word meant.
She caught me off guard so I just told her it was kinda an adult word.
"Radio, you are not talking nice," she said.
"In fact, you are being sexy."
Uh... Maybe I should've explained it's definition.

MOTORCYCLE JEANS - Project Eighteen via Anonymous
LACE SHIRT - Poof (swapped)
BRACELET - iSanctuary

BEIGE WEDGES - Payless Shoes
EARRINGS - 99 cent depot

These are outfits from the week.  I recently had a clothing swap with friends and got both the lace and striped tops from my friend, Gingham.  The motorcycle jeans are from Anonymous and I decided to pair them with girly lace and sky high fringe heels.  The madras skirt is an oldie from a CaBi party and I decided to mix patterns with the stripes.  I'm linking that outfit up with Two Birds' "Inspiration Monday."

Princess Sparkles uses Eucerin as make-up

Lately, I've been trying not to shop so much.  Having the clothing swap with friends helped because I got new clothes without spending any money.  But then I went to visit my friend Fierce at Anonymous and purchased motorcycle jeans and blue skinnies.  But it's almost my birthday so I thought it was okay for me to be, as Princess Sparkles calls it, a little "sexy."

Wow, clothes swap sounds fun! Wish I could have something like that here :)I try to shop only when I need something which turned out to be every month.. so I guess this shop less mantra of mine didn't work after all ;) Looking great and your children are super cute!

Ooh, that jacket!! What an edgy look with leather & lace! The shoes are perfect, too!
Your kids crack me up. Don't you wish you could bottle these moments?

Frannie Pantz said...

LMAO Oh my goodness! This wouldn't be the LMFAO song would it? My kids always talk about the "bad word" in that song. I love that jacket and lace top in the first look!
