Scarlett O'Hara, Part III | Fashion Muse

It's the final installment of the Scarlett O'Hara-inspired fashion series.  And I've definitely saved the best for last...   ;)

It is time to showcase Scarlett's ultra-sexy red gown that Rhett makes her wear to dinner at Ashley and Melanie's house.  It is form-fitting, sparkly, feathery, and the most seductive shade of scarlet. Be sure to wear lots of rouge.  (Rhett's orders.)


Look red hot for any event by employing Scarlett's bold use of crimson.  The first dress really embodies the spirit of Scarlett's gown: form-fitting, sparkly, and even poofy sleeves!  Sex it up with sky-high heels and bright lipstick and you're ready to paint the town red.  The second dress screams "satin seductress" and pairs perfectly with silky pumps and a vintage-inspired clutch in the same hue.  To really stand out in a crowd, opt for a modern interpretation of Scarlett's eye-catching dress, like the third one here.  Accessorize with red stain wedge heels, silky elbow-length gloves, and plenty of rouge.


Scarlett's red splendor can be employed in everyday situations, too.  The first look pulls together dark skinnies, a form-fitting red top, crimson booties, and a pretty scarf---ideal for meeting your girls at the coffee shop for a red-hot gossip sesh.  The second look, perfect for class, mixes roughed-up skinnies, a red v-neck sweater, flats, and a canvas tote that Scarlett would surely approve of.  Lastly is a look fit for the clubs or a night of bar-hopping.  Wear your darkest skinnies with a red sequin-embellished top and sky-high scarlet booties. 

Hope you enjoyed the series!  Do you channel your inner Scarlett O'Hara when it comes to fashion?

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
