Recreate the look with Flannery's Bcbg Maxi Dress tutorial:



How would you describe your style?

Bright, fun, colorful & sparkly! 

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

My gold leather jacket from Zara (seen here).I actually bought it when I was pregnant but it’s definitely not a maternity jacket!  I just needed something that made me feel less of a mom-to-be and more of a glamorous badass!

Who are your style icons?

My mother has been my style icon since I was born!  Because of her love of beautiful things, she helped to train my eye at a very young age.  She also loved to sew, so my sister and I were always surrounded by amazing fabrics and got to have custom outfits made for us all the time!  Some other favorites are Cyndi Lauper, Iris Apfel and Katy Perry.   

Do you have any favourite designers?

Valentino, Needle & Thread, Vivienne Westwood (I even named my daughter after her!)
, Trina Turk and Tarina Tarantino.

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes?

Well let’s just say that when I go into a Kate Spade store, my husband knows that some major damage is about to happen! I also love J.Crew, Dorothy Perkins and Net-A-Porter.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

Yes!  That is actually what my blog is all about- “Tweaking” things to make them better and/or more interesting.  I have been doing it for years and finally decided to start documenting it on my blog, Fashion Tweaker!

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?

Yes!  Get crazy!  Mix colors and patterns and textures and wear tons of jewelry! I always say that life is too short to wear black!

 Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

Macademian Girl is one that I regularly read, I also love Winnipeg Style! My sister does some fun fashion posts on her blog, Bombay Blonde, as well!  Everyone that you feature here on the Cut Out & Keep site is amazing too!

Minneapolis, Minnesota •

I would have to say the best thing about living in Minneapolis is getting to experience all the seasons. One day we have sun and the next day we have this snow. The city is also more calm than other cities, while still having the familiar hustle and bustle. Cute restaurants and a big theatre scene make Minneapolis a great place to see.




We head behind the scenes at Little Deer Tracks to tour Aimee's studio in Siloam Springs, AR.

My dolls are my favorite things, they make me happy and are fun to decorate with! :) I have lots of artwork from various artists I admire throughout my house, and I have a gallery wall of my own embroidery art in my craft room.



We loved Angelina Jolie in Disney's new Magnificent movie, so this week we're recreating her wicked style:

Angelina always looks gorgeous and I loved her costume and make-up in Maleficent. The evil queen look suited her well!

We stopped off at Gourdough's food truck while road-tripping through Austin and tucked in to a gigantic donut topped with gummy worms and cookie crumbles. Today, they teach us how to make their super fruity Miss Shortcake donut.



 

This week Cat recreates the look of actress Kat Dennings in the TV Show, Two Broke Girls and gives her a glittering purple smokey eye makeover.

Someone once told me "it's funny, you look like Kat Dennings and your name is Cat too!". Though I don't totally see the similarity, I do really love her look and couldn't resist trying to recreate it. After all, who can go wrong with a sleek cat eye and red lips?!

  • Blazer - op-shop
  • Shoes - DIY (see below)
  • Tights - Sussan
  • Top - Ginger Tree

DIY Pom Pom Shoes:

Recreate the look with Jenna's pom pom shoes tutorial:



How would you describe your style?

Somewhat clownish, like a young child who was given too much freedom in dressing themselves. Lots of print mixing, statement pieces, pastel or bright colours, (or both) and general eccentric cat-lady style.

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

My rainbow polka dot 50's style dress. Especially fantastic worn with petticoats and doc martens, so you look particularly sassy.

Who are your style icons?

Anna Piaggi, Iris Apfel, Tavi Gevinson, and the people who wear what they want, and don't give a damn.

Do you have any favourite designers?

Oh, yes. The crazier the better. Romance Was Born, Meadham Kirchhoff, Lu Flux, Lady Petrova. The style of the pieces is important, but so is the ethics of that designer.

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes?

Both ethically and because of my budget, op shops/thrift stores or hunting designers on ebay is my way to go. But I do find myself obsessing over certain Dangerfield pieces, or Gorman. 

Do you make or customise your outfits?

As much as I can, yes. I have sewn a few dresses and what-not, but I find handmade accessories are easier and have the same impact. You'll often find me stroking velvet and playing with buttons in craft stores.

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?

Learn to sew, even it means re-hemming or changing necklines. Recycling old clothes, making accessories, gettin' crafty with a hot glue gun and embroidery also add a personalised touch, and you can be as insane as you wish. 

Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

Pineneedle Collective, The Clothes Horse, Mermaidens, Self-constructed Freak, and Scathingly Brilliant. I love blogs that are beautiful aesthetically, but also those with happy, interesting content.
