Lets Do the Twist

Monday, April 18, 2011


This is my attempt at a professional (but still truly funky Gaby) look. When I showed up at work that day a co-worker said, "Omg you look so fancy, are you going out tonight"? 
Me? Go out? At night? I don't think so. I'm just happy to dress up for work! 

What I'm wearing here are some of my go to pieces. The Steve Madden leopard wedges, the J. Crew belt, the over-used and abused Zara sweater (that I seem to wear every other day... issues). 

There are always those items of clothing you just gravitate to. This sweater is one of those items. I really need to stop wearing it so often, it's getting repetitive. I must say though, I'll be so sad to put it away once summer comes along (I think I'm transitioning to summer clothes this weekend). I'll have to say a special goodbye to this baby and be sure to smother it in moth balls so it looks just as perfect next winter! After all my complaining about the cold weather, I'm getting sad about putting away my sweaters, uy. 

Zara sweater, J. Crew belt, Madewell necklace, American Apparel skirt, Steve Madden shoes 



My pride and joy, my Dannijo sample sale bracelet. I just love the neon orange flowers. I mean... it's just perfection; Dannijo bracelet, sample sale, inexpensive, neon orange... all words you just LOVE hearing said in one sentence. 



It's the most wonderful time of the blog (I'm imagining this being sung very loud)....

My Crummy (get it?) Review
** For those of you who are new readers crummy is a play on the name Crumbs (cupcakes), my obsession**




I'm dying just looking at these pictures right now. As I've promised above, this is my crummy review. The top cupcake, which I've conveniently forgotten the name of, was very tasteless (I know I can't believe I'm saying this about a Crumbs cupcake). Stay away from it, the frosting is hard and there's nothing inside it, total waste. What can I say, I'm shockingly blunt. Sometimes the crummy truth hurts (I can't stop with the wonderful puns)!

However, this bottom beauty, the Birthday cupcake, is fabulous. Cream cheese frosting, sprinkles baked in the cake... oh yea, and more cream cheese frosting in the center, I mean this is heaven. I was even tempted to lie and say it was my birthday just to get a candle (the guy said it came with one) but I didn't. I had to keep my morality intact for the day. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Monday. 


Until my next crummy post (I just can't stop)!

Ciao!
Gaby

Oh cake is my favourite thing in the world, i am like obsessed! Love the review!
In reply to your question the Zoe boots are *Hell* to walk in! Literally, they don't hurt your feet but your ankles where they are so high you have to walk funny! They are definitely car to restaurant kinda shoes!

Great blog!

Love the outfit as always! I always go to school dressed up and my classmates always ask me if I'm going on a job interview! Is it so bad to be fashion forward at school/work? I don't think so lol!
Have a great day!
