Flashback Friday: NYC Fashion Week Fall 2013

Hello dolls!

I just realized it’s been over a month since my last post. Whoops. I’ve got to get on this. Well I am thinking of starting a new Friday segment called “Flashback Friday,” where we can look back on amazing fashion that happened and needs to be remembered! With Fall right around the corner, I decided to go back and look at all the runway looks and trends that we will begin to see in just a few weeks. I stumbled into the “Street Style” category, and this is THE place to go for amazing inspirational outfits. I’ve posted a few of my favorites below. Hope you enjoy!

The next outfit gets runner-up, in my opinion. That striped double button jacket with the matching hat is so quirky chic. Oh, and then lets go ahead and add the cutest cork, mary-jane platform pumps that have existed. Perfection.

Last but not least, first place goes to this doll. I mean… that purse? That suit? That adorable headband? Oh, and then top it all off with those cherry red lips. She is a RagDoll winner for sure.

What do you think? Which look was your favorite? 

Happy Friday!

The Candy Striper

Hello Dolls!

 

I am SO bad about staying up to date on this blog! I am going to improve…. Someday!

In important news… there is a huge trend alert going on, and we are proud to be a part of it! Unless you’ve been under a rock the entire Spring season, you’ve noticed stripes have become all the rage in the fashion scene. Down the runway, walking down the sidewalk… wherever you go there they are!

Well, we love them too. So much that we gave our “The Candy Striper Dress” a round 2, but this time in “mint.” Once again, we can’t keep it on the racks. It’s probably because it’s only $64!

If you want to “GET THE LOOK,” stop into RagDoll and swipe this lil lady up before she’s all gone!

What Inspires Us? *Home Edition*

Hello Dolls!

As I’ve been in the process of upgrading to a bigger and better apartment in Midcity, I have been all over Pinterest, thrifting like it’s going out of style, and trying to come up with great craft ideas for low budget decor.

While diving into Pinterest on my inspiration exploration, I stumbled across some amazing artists that made my heart flutter. I hope they do the same for you!

RagDoll on the Road: Ocean Springs, MS

Hello Dolls!

How are things? I hope Spring is treating you as beautifully as it is me! Last week I was able to tag along on an impromptu trip to Ocean Springs, MS with my babes (a.k.a. my boyfriend) while he was there for work, and I thoroughly enjoyed my day dates with myself. Although we only stayed one night, I was able to soak in everything the charming little town has to offer, including beach time!

IMG_9546

When I wasn’t turning my skin lobster red, I was enjoying the adorable little square, antiquing, and of course thrifting! I stumbled across this adorable little place in the square called the “Lovelace Drug Store.” Not only were they uber friendly, but they had so much retro nostalgia I had to document.

 IMG_8909 IMG_9433

Although the dining furniture appeared to be recreations, the soda fountain and prescription counter seemed original. The sweet lil lady working the fountain made me up a DELICIOUS cream soda float (1st time ever!) and was so excited to inform me that they made their own cream soda from scratch! They also use Barq’s Root Beer to bottle it with their very own labels.

I’m not sure how long this place has been here, but they definitely still kept their charm! Service was a bit slow, but when you are there for a lazy day afternoon with yourself it is just what the doctor ordered.

Before leaving, I convinced the babes to stop by one last thrift shop in Gulfport, MS. This lovely young man owned it with his wife, and he obviously knew how to handpick the perfect selection. Babes even left with this fantastic pair of pants, suspenders included.

IMG_2355

If you ever have a chance to drop by this sweet little town, be sure to stay in the square at “The Inn.” Although we didn’t get a chance to stay there, it looks like an adorable little B&B and the locals rave about it!

Until we meet again,

Rachel
