Repurpose sista's closet = repurpose sista's life.

Yesterday, I spent four hours with my oldest sister.

The lady has six children, and has been needing the help (for quite some time) to revamp, repurpose, and RECLAIM her closet.

The woman would even admit that she struggles 
(struggled now because NOW she is champion closet-ician) in that closet of hers.

Do you ever feel like you have NOTHING to wear despite having a closet FULL of clothes?
Do you ever feel boring in your clothes?

She felt that way.  

So I helped her out to see if we could rework some things.
(This is a part of a series, so there are more posts to come about this)

We took this baby blue sweater (kinda gray in the first pic--sorry guys) and tried to rock it in three different ways, and the above pics are what we came up with.

My sister and I have VERY different tastes.  So I tried very hard to create things for her that she would feel comfortable wearing but also were versatile, interesting for her, and F.U.N.

I had SOOOO much fun doing it, and want to do with other people.

If you feel like you need help reworking your closet or just need a new perspective on how to rock what you already have--email me!!!!

I'm just a click away dudes.

Christmas was just lovely. Was yours?

 The Momma and Me

Pics from my actual Christmas day will come tomorrow.


Remember how I said that our family pretty much is a "Go big or Go home" kind of family?

The day before Christmas Eve, my mom and I went to a famous bakery in SLC called Gormandies.

It is just beautiful inside and all the goodies looked dynamite.  

When I go into places like this I always think, "Why the heck am I not this cool?  Why don't I own a bakery shop?"  And then my mind drifts into a random abyss of thoughts ending somewhere with why don't I have super powers like Eliza Thornberry on "The Wild Thornberry's?"

If you have never heard of that show- I'm more sorry for you than I am for myself.  Such a great childhood show for me and my "wild" imagination.  


My mom bought this beautiful fruit tart among other goodies for our Swedish Christmas Smorgasbord and being with my family was just delightful.

I hope yours was just as delightful!

Tomorrow, I'll show my fave XMAS present.  It's Rad.

Guest Posting is M.E.R.R.Y!

Today I'm over at Awkward Girls guest posting about what to wear to Christmas parties.  Go check it out!

Isn't this huh-larious?  This lady friend literally propped this sign up next to her in the library while I was studying for finals one night.  

What I got a giggle from is that she was so willing to pose for the pic.

The bookstore is selling them for 5.95!  Get yours while you can!

HAHAHA wow.  What a laugh.

Isn't it about....Time?


Coat: Lili (Courtesy of Pamela Metcalf) (You're the best!), blouse: J.Crew, pants: Anthropologie, Shoes: Marc by Marc Jacobs (courtesy of Pamela Metcalf), necklace: Target, Lipstick: MAC

When there is a Christmas party in my family, the halls are decked.

Raclette (a traditional swiss cheese dish), upside down Christmas trees, beautiful ornaments, table presentations (my aunt is an interior decorator), and jolly good music all around.  Hey you....let's sing Here we come a wassailing now akay?

This may all seem so untoward, but really....I just adore the buildup towards Christmas.

I saw some cousins I feel like I haven't seen in like's like, oh hey you exist still...and you have a baby now?  Awesome.  I love you...and your just now brought to my attention baby.

Christmas.  It brings people together.

11 years and still going strong

Because it's Christmas break, I am unfortunately apart from my photographer lover.  You'll have to put up with Instagram pho-tos for a little while....

For 11 years now, me and this beautiful lady have done an annual Christmas shopping fest.  We go to a store and we buy each other the exact same thing for Christmas.  She is a DOLL and has been a best friend now for 11 years.  Alisha.  I. Love. You.

This year, we decided to brave the H&M.  Parking was madness.  The parking lot was a parking lot....ha.  

People were honking and yelling at me as I waited for a girl to leave her parking spot and I thought,  Ya!  This is what Christmas is all about you WIENERS!

We went into H&M, and we immediately hated our lives.  It was packed and overwhelming.  Usually we spend hours in the store looking for the perfect gift for each other , but we got so drained from the crowds.

We thought we would buy these cardigans (pictured above) for eachother.  But ya know....sometimes the H&M just doesn't get it right.  We looked like a bunch of G-MA's but with perkier LADIES....

This year was different.  I bought Lish a Kate Middleton look alike dress, and she bought me a pair of leopard print gloves.  

You CANNOT go wrong with leopard print gloves.  Even if the guys behind us in the check out line did smell like dog turd.....

How final exams compute in Meg's world.

 I'm STA-RESSIN.  I was at the library until 2 am last night.  Planned on waking up at 8 but slept through my alarm and woke up at freaking NOON.  Woooooooow Meg.  

I didn't think it was possible to have a room where the floor is covered entirely, but the closet is still full.    Welcome to my finals world....I guess.  Not admirable, but it is what it is.

Sorry for the post delay BUT....

Oh. My. Gosh.

I'm so excited about this giveaway!

I have an incredibly talented friend whose name is Roxanne Gray ( Whose blog can be found Here).  Her name alone permits the word RAD.

This lady is so adorable, stands at like 5'1", and with her husband, Sam, runs a vintage clothing shop on ETSY called Rox & Sam vintage. 

Yesterday, I had the privilege of spending 3 precious hours with Rox to play dress up with her UH-MAZIN' shop.

You guys, I literally wanted to buy everything and try everything on.  I even wanted to try on all the baby clothes they were so adorable.

You heard me.  They sell women's, men's and baby clothes.

Roxanne and her husband Sam travel all over, and collect vintage items and then sell them on her shop.  Roxanne and I wanted to collaborate because we know that dressing in classic, vintage clothing can be scary and intimidating.  There is, however, a definite way to make it look modern and HOT, if you will.  There really is!  And.  It makes your outfits more unique and fun.  So go outside yourself!

Today is all you's lucky day!  Roxanne is giving away a $40.00 gift certificate towards her shop.  Oh my crap...can I enter?  

Here are the rules:  

1.  Follow this blog via google connect (right hand panel of this blog)

2.  Follow Roxanne and Sam on Pinterest.  You must pin something from their shop and then leave a comment saying which item you pinned.  If you don't have a pinterest.  Then follow their shop on Etsy, and leave a comment saying you did.  The link is here.  Keep in mind though, that following their pinterest is the preferable way for entry!

This Giveway is a short giveaway and will only last until this Friday at MIDNIGHT!!!  The winner will be announced Saturday morning.  AKAY?
Just in case you didn't win this giveaway, Rox and Sam are offering a discount to Pinker... readers.  Until December 20th you can use the code PINK10 to get 10% off of anything in the store.  Gee, thnks Rox and Sam.  You guys are swell and stuff.  

So now, we have two giveaways going on....The perplexus toy of the year giveaway( which ends this Sunday), and the Rox & Sam Giveway (which ends this Friday)
