Fashion-smashion- Skating on Thin Ice

We have all dreamt at one time or another of being an ice dancer...gliding gracefully on the ice...twisting and spinning...well that is until you fall flat on your tush.  Just because your dreams of being the next Michelle Kwan are left on your pillow doesn't mean you cant dress like her.

For months now we have been oogling and googling skater dresses...saving them in our carts...emailing them to each other and gettting more and more obsessed.  After seasons filled with uber hipster, dowdy boring clothes spring brings us cute, girly and bright freaking trends...we heart it soooo much!

Skater dresses fit every seriously...EVERY one...

-Got amazing legs like Miss Me?  √ Skater dresses will hook them up
-Got not so Miss Me legs but a killer waist? √  Skater dresses will let you show it off
-Love your boobies? √  Yup you know it
-Hate your bootie √  ok ok you get the picture

Here are a few of our faves...and maybe just maybe a few shoes to go with them...

Oh ps...boys (you know who you are...the ones we lovingly call baby daddies, this is basically a wish list is every fashion post...hint hint...)

  Ok...the one that started our hearts a fluttering....this cray cray cute skater dress with cut outs from Asos...

The print is reminicent of a certain MJ dress we hearted last maybe our hearts grew fonder from that...

This candy striped beauty should for SURE be worn with these gorge, delicious, insanely rad Mulberry Wedges!!!

Dear Asos (yes again), you had us at alphabet print...maybe its because we both have new(ish) bunnies or maybe we are just super young (like just outta high school young...cough cough) so we remember the alphabet like it was last year...

Loving the letters printed on this cutie bean SD (skater dress...obvs).  Great neck line, waist and  perfect flirty skirt!  It would die to be worn to Coachella and paired with these beauties...

 Hello Topshop lacey frock.  How quaintly awesome are you with your neon lime/yellow lining!?!?  Super awesome? is.  We heart you and all you represent!

 Ok, so our real life obsession started last year with this super sexy SD from Australian line, Lover.   Perfectly named because we heart it like a secret lover.   This dress is, saucy, sweet, chic and can be worn ANYWHERE and literally with ANYTHING!  

Pair it with a moto jacket and these stupidly gorge Margiela booties and you my love will be the belle of any ball.

Oh, that Lover dress is crazy shit!  We found this little number for you from (yeah yeah) Asos.  You're welcome!  

And maybe instead of those M booties (again...they belong to us in our dreams....or at our birthdays..hint hint boys...HINT mother f'n HINT) you can grab these Rachel Zoe-esque wedges from Aldo.  

How ever you wear it...wear it with sass and style...try not to opt for flip flops and a cardi...spice it up and who might end up with a gold medal for the style Olympics (if they gave out medals for that...which they like, totally should)

Its good to be no...its GREAT to be back!!!
We love you guys!

Random Hearts??? Lana Del Rey

(Lana Del Rey promo shot: Stolen from

We know you guys, We know.... We've been gone almost over a year, with two beautiful babies to show for it... And endless good intentions to sit down and post a wonderful piece for our true blue readers and supporters.... And we come back for Lana Del Rey?!

We KNOW!!!

But you guys... It's just something that can't be helped.

(Sixteen Candles image stollen from Cinema GOD, John Hughes)

We are officially obsessed. Going through the day checking and re-checking google images to make sure that, yes! Lana Del Rey does still look EXACTLY like the older drugged sister from Sixteen candles!

(as our dear & insightful friend Emily pointed out)

(Image match stolen from an unknown genius)

Checking to make sure that, yes! She is still some what annoyingly slow and pouty in her singing style....

And finally that YES, she does have the same name as the man-hungry 1970's O.G cougar from Three's Company!

We are going for full honesty, pour-out-our-guts-ness here.
Paula Abdul style, STRAIGHT UP NOW.

We really want to hate her.... It has been so long since these feeling of confusion, stomach churning dislike mixed with secret admiration and jealousy have reared their ugly heads inside of us. Almost exactly, since high school actually.
She is THAT girl!

Oh my God you guys! Look at her!

Lana Del Rey is like a young Julia Roberts that you just absolutely, positively, Just do NOT want to be besties with... That is unless she wants to be besties with us and then, in that case, sure, call me and I guess we can hang or whatever.

All we hear about these days is Lana Del Rey.... Our husbands listen to her in the car, in the office and are constantly trying to convince us that her songs are actually really new and innovative and that her lyrics are amazing...

Yeah, thats true.. Ok, we really DO like the lyrics to Video Games..

She MIGHT even actually be a Gangsta Nancy Sinatra or WHATEVER.... But we know 96% of it has to do with the fact that home girl looks like this....

(Image stolen from:

Lana is like every indy, musician , skater boy, graffiti guys dream girl... In the end does it really even matter if she was manufactured in a record company board room?

She wears short, shorts and red high top converse in her F*cking videos people!

She wears ringer shirts and Esther Williams style flowers in her hair!

If she was created in a board room, then there were some genius decisions made that day!

As much as we want to be haters, we kinda can't... And why do we want to be anyway? Why did we spend/waste time finding her before and after plastic surgery photos?

(Image: Interview magazine duh.)

We live in HOLLYWOOD.... Who hasn't had a little work done? Although we do love the gals who openly cop to it, (because it's a little insulting to think we are that naive?) does it really make a difference? She was pretty in the before pictures anyway....

True story: One of us actually sent this before photo to her husband like,

"Look at your girlfriend before her lip job. Not trying to be a bitch..."

A. I was totally trying to be a bitch

B. his response was "Whatevs".

C. Seriously, just trying to remind you that my lips are ALL real dude.

See? That is some high school shiz... Why is this girl getting under my skin?

Is it because I don't like her? Or because when I borrow my husbands car I totally enjoy listening to her album and then change it to the Beastie Boys when I get out so as not to be discovered? Hmmmm?

Whatever it is we are torn... TORN, torn as her high waisted short shorts...

How do you feel? Let us know in the comment section.
Unless you live with either of us, in that case keep it to yourself mister.
