It’s the end of November, time for me to think about and share with you some of the things I’ve been loving this month. Check out what’s on my favorites list from fashion to beauty to food as we head into the holidays and take a moment to give thanks.

The movie , “Thor: The Dark World” is coming out next weekend and I for one am super excited to see one of my favorite superheroes grace the big screen once again. With all the comic book based films coming out (thank you Marvel and DC Comics!), what’s more fun to get in the spirit than to dress with a little comic POW! WHAM! BANG! These comic book accessories are both fun and fashionable and perfect for a night at the movies or hitting your local comic book store or convention to add to your collection.

Tie one on with The Avengers with a bright scarf worn on the neck or as a headband. (As mentioned in my October Favorites Video: youtu.be/-IY-sGwPWQ8.) Thor hammer lightening bolt earrings* and cuff bracelet* are what you need this month to celebrate Thor’s return to the big screen. The Marvel Flight Bag* or Wonder Woman Hobo Bag* will hold all the essentials you need to conquer the world, while chilly nights call for Superman leggings* or Batman over the knees socks*.
Ladies, how many times have you felt your lingerie is so pretty, you just wish everyone could see it? That’s definitely the case with What Katie Did Lingerie – the retro-inspired lingerie brand that recreates the sexy looks of silver screen starlets of the ‘40s and ‘50s. They recently paired with one of my favorite vintage reproduction designers, ReVamp Vintage, for a fashion show unlike any other.
The catwalk took the form of a classic burlesque routine. Models provided a seductive but elegant and playful tease – we’re keeping it PG folks! – showing off ReVamp dresses and pantsuits on the outside, then stripping down to their What Katie Did Lingerie underneath. It was a great way to showcase both designers – and as expected, the crowd went wild!

October is a time for transition from summer to fall. Some of the things I’m loving this month in women’s fashion include some layers to spice up your wardrobe and stay warm on chilly nights, bold accessories, and adding the color orange in my makeup look. Plus I have one big, rockin’ music favorite! Check out the video for my beauty and fashion October favorites and see where to buy these and similar items in the links below:

I shopped my own closet for the items mentioned so here are links to some of them and similar items:
In my personal style, I like to mix things up. It’s usually a combination of looks I’ve always been attracted to: punk, mod, elegant vintage and modern trends. Today I was feeling some punky women’s fashion. With the weather turning cooler, it’s time to pull out a fluffy, faux-fur vest, pencil skirt and some fun checkered boots. I added a funky statement necklace and bold lipstick.
Vest purchased at TopShop London. Boots from Amazon.com.

LA Fashion Week has been happening all over Tinsel Town this week with fashion shows from Downtown to Hollywood. My dance card has been rather full trying to hit as many events as possible to check some well-known and emerging designers. Lots of women’s fashion ideas for Spring/Summer 2014. Each event has been its own creative feast for the eyes and I must say the people watching in the audience has been almost as entertaining. The fashion crowd knows how to pull out some style! I saw a lot of bling, stilettos and general “bring it” attitude. A nice change from going out and seeing people in flip-flops and track suits (which pains my eyes!)
Most of the shows have featured several designer showcases back to back and few music acts and performance artists to mix things up. While some fashion collections I was admittedly underwhelmed by, three stood out to me for ultra unique silhouettes, interesting cuts, use of textures and patterns. And of course, my picks all seem to have a little retro influence (what can I say, I love that!) but use it in very modern, wearable ways.
If you’ve been wanting to add some personality to your wardrobe, look no further than Modcloth, the brand known for their retro inspired fashion. They just launched two NEW private labels of women’s clothing!
In my previous post, I showed how-to put together a look with Myrtlewood. Today, I styled a look around Bea+Dot, a playful line that can be worn out ‘n’ about during the day or for fun nights out with the girls or clubbing.
Here’s how to style a look around a Bea+Dot dress from Modcloth:
The fun, A-line silhouette and detailing of the “Playing Tagline” dress* will give you a mod look in a wearable way that can take you from your day job to a nightclub. Pair with some accessories that embrace your inner child such as a smiling handbag*, owl wallet* and pencil bracelet.* The chic tortoiseshell sunglasses* will protect your eyes, while a pop of bright red, patent wedges* on your toes keep you grounded.
