Budget or Blowout : Miss Scarlet

Looking for a sweet and pretty look for any number of Holiday parties? I love a knee or mid-calf full skirt paired with a pretty, feminine silk blouse. Add some simple studs and charm necklace, complimented by a bold floral bag and adorable kitten heels and you're good to go. But which outfit do you prefer, and can you tell which is budget and which is the blowout?

Fashion : Simply the Vest

I know, you love my silly title puns, but I simply can't help myself! Just like I can't help but sort of like the look of vests as an alternative to a full coat when the weather is between cool and almost cold. So if you aren't worried about your arms getting chilly, here are a few looks that feature the crossover artist from outerwear to streetwear, the Vest. Which look is the most you?

Design : Donna Ruff

Love these paper cuts from artist Donna Ruff. An awesome use of old newspapers, if you ask me, is turning them into works of art you would love to display in your home or office.

Fashion : Save the Wild Tiger

It's not a big secret that I'm an animal lover, which is why this post is dedicated to supporting the endangered tiger and raising awareness about the Tiger Trade. Every signature, every donation, helps. 
Doing a kindness only takes a few seconds, or moments of your time and you can help stop the suffering these incredible beings are forced to endure at human hands.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.  

This post is dedicated to saving and ending the suffering of the beautiful and endangered Tiger. Tiger's are viciously farmed, hunted, tortured and killed for any number of ridiculous reasons, from the archaic and erroneous belief that their bones, whiskers or other parts will somehow transfer the power of the tiger to user to the very inhumane and unnecessary fur trade. I don't believe in criticizing anyone's beliefs or culture, but when it comes at the cost of such inhumane suffering and cruelty, it becomes an issue for me, especially when scientific proof supports the notion that aspirin is just as effective, if not more so, than the crushed bones of this beautiful and endangered creature. So, to show my support and hopefully share information about banning tiger trade, here are 3 outfits inspired by the tiger, that show you don't have to be cruel to harness the beauty and awesomeness of the Tiger.

For more information and to do even the smallest part, visit Tiger Time-Ban Tiger Trade
as well as the Panthera Save the Tiger Fund.
You can also see other species that are in need of help.

If you have other links that support this important cause, please share in comments!
