Cyclic Nail Polish, Madden Boots and Snow Party

"It's a snow party!"
Princes Sparkles exclaimed as I peeked into the den.
She had cut paper into tiny pieces and thrown it everywhere.
Sparkles played DJ while Pigtails became Bucket's personal stylist.
Then they danced.
I told Sparkles to please clean up afterwards.
She nodded then shouted, "Let's throw snowballs!"

EMBROIDERED BLACK DRESS - JWLA (bought second hand)
CAMOUFLAGE SCARF - Cejon (via Loehmanns)
BROWN BOOTS - Steve Madden

PONY HAIR BLACK BOOTS - Steven by Steve Madden (thrifted)
BARBED WIRE EARRINGS - iSanctuary (via Share)
NON-TOXIC BLUE NAIL POLISH - in Olympia, by Cyclic

Here are a few outfits I actually wore on the same day.  The first is a dress I bought via Craigslist when I was pregnant.  I paired it with my fave rugged Steve Madden boots and a camouflage scarf.  I'm linking this outfit up with "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.  The second outfit I wore on date night.  It's an animal print sweater that has an actual leopard's face on it.  I wore it with my fabulous pony hair boots I thrifted with Mary Jo from "Trust Your Style."  The nail polish is Cyclic, a new water-based, non-toxic nail polish that comes in an amazing crystal bottle.

Bucket, styled by Pigtails, wears her purple sweatshirt and Dora socks to Sparkles' "snow" party.

It may be snowing in other parts of the country (and in our den), but outside it's a cool 70 degrees .  I can't believe it's winter!  Somedays it's so warm outside I just have to pretend it's winter by wearing boots and scarves!  And the only snow we have around here is paper.
