I’m not gonna lie. I have been dreaming for about 8 years about prancing through a room filled with quirky dresses from ModCloth. Yesterday, that dream came true! The ModCloth IRL pop-up shop made it’s way to Pittsburgh at 625 Smithfield Street for the last stop of their IRL Tour. The pop-up fit shop will be open through Tuesday, September 27th, Monday-Saturday, 10am-8pm and Sunday, 11am-6pm. Continue reading “My First Ever Blogger Event: ModCloth IRL Pop-up Shop”
What makes you dream? For me staring at the night sky sets my imagination on fire. Next time you catch yourself outside at night, take a moment and look up at the moon and the stars. It is such a beautiful thing to be a part of something that is so much bigger than any of us are!
When I saw the Heart and Solar System Dress from the ModCloth namesake label, it reminded me of that sense of wonderment I get when I look at the stars. Throw in a whimsical print, an adorable silhouette with pockets and I was sold! I’ve been wanting to share another Mixtape Monday playlist for a while now and thought what better theme than tunes inspired by the boundless and beautiful, outer space.
I can’t believe that a whole year has passed since starting the Life on a Dot blog! I am so thankful for everyone who has been a part of this whirlwind with me so far. The journey has had its ups and downs, from being featured on some awesome blogs to letting my perfectionism get the best of me. Here’s a few things I’ve learned along the way… Continue reading “3 Things I Learned During My First Year of Blogging”
Rise and shine…today, July 28th, is #StylishPittsburgh Day! I am super jazzed to be contributing and collaborating with so many amazing (and fashionable) gals and guys in the city I love.
I first became aware of Three Rivers Vintage after Susan Gregg Koger, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of ModCloth, shared on Instagram that a “new vintage wonderland” had popped up in Pittsburgh. That tiny square image was enough to make me rush down to 1716 East Carson Street on Pittsburgh’s historic South Side and check it out for myself!

One thing that I love about returning home from a vacation is that little reminder that sticks with you to get out and play. Literally, I mean play. Get out of the house, let go, bliss out, do something that makes you feel good, laugh, and look like an idiot.
So, life can be a bit of a jokester sometimes. I am naturally a very bubbly, social, and optimistic person, but I’ve got a little secret. I suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder. I know what you may be thinkin’ but nope, I am not amazingly organized (I wish) and you won’t find a clean freak here (sorry, honey)! Instead, I often find myself struggling intrusive thoughts that send me into a vicious cycle of worry, fear, and doubt (ya know, if I leave the Christmas lights on when we’re not home the house WILL burn down). That’s a pretty lame joke, life. Continue reading “I’m a Little Uncool and I’m a Little Uncouth”
This weekend my gal pal and blogger friend, Jess, explored Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood for a chilly afternoon of shopping local. I love living in a city that has so many incredible little boutiques, thrift and consignment shops; so to say I was excited to finally be visiting No. 14 Boutique was a major understatement. Continue reading “Lovely in Local: No. 14 Boutique”
Let me start this off by saying I have always been one to live colorfully (well, except for that year or so in high school when I thought colors were the worst).
During my 8th grade home economics class I picked up pretty quickly on how to sew. I made pillows, aprons, little stuffed animals, and this one pair of pants. Continue reading “Rainbow Reincarnation”
Some of you may have come across Life on a Dot not knowing a single thing about me, while some of you know that I am a little hard of hearing due to blasting My Heart Will Go On at full volume when I was 10. However you came to be here, I am so happy to have you! This week I reached out to my friends, family and coworkers to ask me anything. I love how the questions reflect their personalities, as well as, show the differences in our relationships. This post will be a little longer than most, but I hope this gives you a little glimpse into my little dot!
