Ivy Frozen Presents: How to Layer Ivy Style

Layering is so last year. Toss grunge back in the dumpster from which it sprang. This year is all about ladylike looks.


And once you're done laughing with me, let's forget that. I actually have no idea what bull they're pitching this year, but layering is always in with shizo California weather and temperaturaly challenged classrooms. And so, as my gift to you, I now present the proper way to layer.

Now I know, all those magazines make layering seem like a science. Or you know, you just wonder how the models can still move their arms since they've piled up enough clothes to rival the little brother in A Christmas Story's orange snowsuit.

Step 1: "I'm cold."

Step 2: Look in closet.

Step 3: Eyes land on tights and long socks; put on a pair.

Step 4: Eye sweaters and jackets.

Step 5: "But not that cold."

Step 6: Opt for a cropped jacket with short sleeves.

Because Ivy's have layers,

P.S. Yes, that was a Shrek reference.

P.P.S. I know I've been MIA, but I've been busy with school and trying to make costumes this month. My return is forthcoming though. Cheer, masses. Cheer.

Everyone Else is at

Sweet Dreams

And where am I?

Here. An Antique dress gallery. But look at the lovliness that is there and you won't blame me. Like that dress above from swan lake. ::drool:: That's the lovliness that led me to this site. But I must confess,

it's this beauty that captivates me. ::drool, drool, drool:: Just look at the collar! I suppose my actual fascination with this coat is because I've had the image of a cape in my mind that has a collar like that. My "dream cape" came about before I saw this, and is actually extremely short and striped. But I want that neck on it!

Look! They even have accesories like hats and shoes. And they're actually selling this stuff, for hefty pricetags of course. That doesn't stop me from totally considering selling my firstborn child for an antuque dress. Not even the fact that I would probably be to scared to wear the item ever can dissuade the dark recesses of my mind from turning that idea over.

P.S. I did not eat Yoda.
