Hello, gorgeous! Hope you are all doing well! Fall has arrived in a big way. The leaves have changed, the chill has crept in and I've even had to scrape ice off of my car once already. This is one of my favorite times of the year. Fashionistas have to love it because we can pretty much bust out a whole new wardrobe. It's also a time where I am forced to face the fact that I have a ridiculous amount of boots and a tights collection that spans the rainbow plus about 10 other shades. Sad thing is I am already taking mental notes of what colors I do not have and need to get. I have a problem.
So apparently with this outfit, I was feeling the need to channel my inner school girl. I bought this skirt recently for like $5 from Aeropostale. How could I say no? The colors are great and it's pleated. Not sure how I was exactly going to wear it for fall I brought it home and saw this cardigan hanging in my closet. It was meant to be,. The pocket detailing matches almost exactly. I paired it with patterned tights and Mary-Jane heels.
Hi everyone! Fall has arrived in a big way. Like brrrrr. I unwisely left the house like this with no jacket and was freezing. My car's heat got cranked for the first time this season. Anyway, I went on a little shopping trip with my mom yesterday and actually bought what seems like a minimum amount of things in comparison what I usually buy. This is okay. I need to do this more often. The most exciting part of the trip was my finding these faux leather pants! I have literally been searching for years for a pair of faux leather pants that A. Aren't so tight they look like leggings and B. Are passably long enough for my stilt legs. Enter these New York & Company pants. I saw them in the store and got super excited. New York and Company pants tend to fit my figure very well so I was instantly hopeful. I put them on and said "Yay, they actually look like pants!" It's the small victories, right?
The T-shirt was also a purchase from this shopping excursion. I love oversized tees...on other people. Not usually me. But this one seemed to strike the right balance of sloppy meets chic. Plus it has a fashionista emblazoned on it. What's not to like?

Hello Dahhhlings! I am rather disappointed to see that it's been almost a month since I posted on here. Life certainly moves fast sometimes. It's October. Holy crap, where did the time go? This is one of my absolute favorite times of the year in Michigan. The leaves all turn beautiful shades of red, orange and yellow and every time I look out the window I feel like I am viewing an exquisite painting. My other part of fall? The food. Apple cider, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin bread, caramel apples and other delicious treats will me flooding my kitchen this time of year.
It's a beautiful 79 degree day here today, so naturally I had to rock the bare legs since it's not going to be able to happen for all that much longer. It's funny to me sometimes how an outfit that you are throwing together at the last minute seems to be one of the coolest you've wore in weeks. Maybe it's because it hasn't been overworked? I woke up this morning and needed to be to work by 8am. I am admittedly not a morning person and my creativity in outfit planning is usually pretty terrible anytime before 10am. However, I think this one turned out alright.
I grabbed this skirt (which seems to be a staple for me) and threw on a breezy sheet white top and topped it with a leather fringe vest. To hide the fact I was having a terrible hair day, I threw on this hat for damage control. The overall look is a little grunge chic, and I love it.

Hi Everyone! I have been absolutely faltering at posting regularly and I feel like I'm constantly apologizing, but I am sorry! :) I've been missing all of you and will be catching up on my fellow fashionista's blogs soon.
Do you ever have days where you are totally ant-pants? Well, today was one of those days for me. I didn't have to work until the afternoon so I mostly lazed around in my jammies all day and when it came time to need to leave the house I still just didn't feel like putting pants on. So I went with this super comfy pumpkin colored mini. I've had this skirt awhile now but I still remember the day H&M when our eyes met across the room and I knew I had to have it. The color and the cute little retro button detailing is what sold me. I kept it simple and paired it with a striped tank, wedges, and a statement necklace.

Hello, Lovelies! How are you this beautiful day? You ever have those days where you are frazzled from second one? I woke up later than I wanted and was scrambling like a mad woman to get around for work. You know what fixes a frazzled day? Faux Leather skirts, big hats and tacos (especially tacos), that's what. I honestly didn't have a lot of time to think about what I was gonna wear this morning so I just started grabbing. I just got this fabulous t-shirt on my latest shopping excursion. I saw it and was instantly in love. Marilyn Monroe and it says "Glamour is Forever"? Sign me up.
Anyhow, this t-shirt inspired me to glam up a bit with a faux leather skirt, pearls, pink heels and a derby hat. It made me think or the Fergie song "Glamorous" and then I found myself wondering what in the heck she is talking about when she says "flossy, flossy." Can anyone answer this question? Because the last time I checked, flossing was not glamorous.

So guys, I've totally neglected my baby. My blog should turn me in for abuse. I've just been so busy and when I'm not busy it seems I've been too lazy. Even though my pictures did not turn out good I decided to woman up and get a post together. :)
This past Saturday I had a busy day. We put on a fashion show for work to show off our fall/back-to-school collection and I was in charge of models and putting the looks together. I went into high stress (read: psycho) mode when several models I had booked flaked on me last minute. So guess who got her bootay up on the runway? You guessed it, this girl right here, and let me tell you I worked it out. My inner diva so needed that.
Anyway the outfit above is what I wore with the intention of styling models backstage. I paired black skinnies with a red cami, cheetah inset black blazer, statement necklace and Dalmation print, bow-adorned heels.

Then after the fashion show/ work I had a wedding reception to run off to, so I went home and changed as quickly as possible into a dress and heels and went back out the door. The sun going down created a lot of awkward shadowing in all of these pics, so ignore that :)

Well guys, I finished my second Warrior Dash. It was an awesome time, even though I could not move the next day. In typical Kassi fashion, I decided to stand out a bit by putting a lovely plastic tiara on my head and a sash that read 2012 Warrior Princess. This was a last minute decision that caused my brother to tell me he would be running nowhere near me. Pffft. What fun is that?
I came to run this bad boy with all guys and at 3/4 a mile in it was becoming clear that with my lack of training (Read: No running whatsoever) I was not going to be able to keep up. As I told them to go on ahead, some lovely ladies said I could run with them and I had a great time laughing and making friends along the way!
