Hellooooo! Can you believe that it’s November already? The spooky month of October is officially out and we are fully into Thanksgiving and Christmas territory. This means that holiday music will be coming in hot and Lil Red just won’t stand for that. After hearing Christmas songs day in and day out for three months of the year for four years of working in the mall, I’ve heard enough to last me a lifetime. So, I’ll be listening to the following, instead:
(And, as always, I have no rights to these songs or videos!)
First of all, let’s get one thing straight: I do not like Post Malone. Lol, frankly, I don’t even know who he is. BUT, my sister plays the song “I Fall Apart” when we’re together and the lyrics of “whippin in the foreign, but the tears keep blowin” put us in hysterics every time. So, yes, this song needed to be included.
Now that that disclaimer is out of the way, this month is all about Fleetwood Mac and Stevie, Stevie, Stevie. My parents saw FM when they came to Cleveland at the end of October and we are still riding the high of their concert by playing all Fleetwood Mac everything. The Edge Of Seventeen is our go to jam, because it always gives us a laugh thinking about our favorite scene from School Of Rock:
Yeah…. Stevie. 😉
Watch and enjoy the above hilarity and then keep on rocking all month long with my November Funky Time Jams!

Howdy! Is there such a thing as having too much black in my wardrobe? I often ask myself this question and always answer with a big fat NO! Despite my colorful hair, lipstick, and personality, I normally adhere to a fairly bleak color palette of primarily black clothing along with grey, white, and navy. But, I appreciate color just as much as the next person and have plenty of vibrant odds and ends to add a fun pop to the darkest of outfits. So, with that in mind, I had no problem adding on another black hat to my collection. Check it out:
I purchased this hat along with the Peter Grimm number from yesterday’s post at TJMaxx. I’m not going to lie, the camel safari inspired bowler hat is a bit out of my comfort zone so it felt good to hop right back in it with this fab find by Adora. Was it the jet black Panama style that sold me? Or how about the adorable puff ball and beaded detail around the rim? All good guesses, and they are correct. BUT, I actually got this hat mainly because it reminded me of Stevie Nicks. I had her heavy on the mind ever since my parents saw Fleetwood Mac in concert a few days prior. So jealous!
So, you could totally go full Stevie with this hat and pair it with all of the billowy, flowy things that you can find. Or, you can go ahead and wear it with literally anything becauuuse BLACK IS A NEUTRAL! And, of course, nothing goes better with all black clothing than black on black on black. My new Adora hat reminds me a lot of American Horror Story: Coven and my plan is to pair it with a Wednesday Adams style dress, smart heels, and a clutch purse for all of the witchy vibes. Edgy and cool, but still oh so chic.

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! I hope that all of you are having a relaxing and restful day to wrap up your week! Today we will be completing the Scarf Series with a gorgeous, black and silver number straight out of one of Stevie Nick’s costume trunks. When I first saw this scarf at TJMaxx, I was totally thinking “Stevie”. And the first words out of my mom’s mouth when she saw it was “It’s just like Stevie Nicks”. So, let’s just say that this scarf is very Stevie inspired. Take a look and let’s discuss:
This Printed Village scarf features metallic silver moons in various stages of waxing and waning against a deep black midnight sky. I’m not going to lie, I hated my Astronomy class in college, but I freaking LOVE the celestial background of this beauty! The pattern of this scarf is simple, cool, and understated, which is different than what I normally go for. You guys know that I love loud and bold clothing. However, there was something about this scarf that stuck… And yes, it is the fact that my mom and I agreed that it’s very Stevie Nicks. 😉
The best thing about this scarf, though? Other than the shimmering moons and a nod to the White Witch? The styling possibilities – because this scarf is huge. This Printed Village piece is the size of your average picnic blanket, which leaves you with tons of options for how to wear it. The idea that I’ve been toying with lately is wearing it as a sarong style wrap over a pair of black skinnies with a black crop top and my black oversized boyfriend blazer for a sleek All Black Everything OOTD. And, of course, chunky silver and gold jewelry is a must to tie everything together.
The sarong wrap for styling this scarf is an interesting idea that I’m looking forward to sporting. But this scarf is so Stevie that it would be sinful to not style it as such. To emulate the White Witch, I plan on layering my sheer maxi dress (That has a solid black crop style top.) over top of a lace maxi skirt, my new scarf wrapped as a shawl on top, and a Panama hat. My black, thigh high, faux suede boots underneath will complete the look and will be a fun peek-a-boo surprise when I give a signature Stevie twirl!
So there you have it, the last of my Scarf Series: Shoot For The Moon Edition! Which celebrity’s style do you admire? How would you style a Stevie Nicks inspired look? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hellooo everyone and welcome to another edition of Woman Crush Wednesday – Stevie Nicks style! The music of the lovely Miss Nicks was a big part of my childhood and every day life now because my parents instilled a love of Fleetwood Mac in me from a young age. So here’s to you, Stevie, because you’ve earned a coveted spot as Lil Red’s #WCW! Let’s discuss:
Dear Stevie Nicks,
Oh Stevie, you gorgeous music/fashion/American Horror Story icon, I just adore you. It only seemed right to post the taping of a live performance of “Sara” as the video I chose to honor you because my parents would always play it for me when I was little. To this day it still remains one of my favorite songs. Your strong and unique voice inspires me with the spirit of pure girl power and you are one of my fashion idols. I have been so obsessed with everything boho rocker chic as of late and I think of you whenever I’m sporting one of my floor length kimonos. In fact, every time I wear one of my flowy favorites my mom will request that I “twirl around like Stevie”, which I happily oblige to! Your cameo on American Horror Story: Coven was one of my top highlights of AHS in its entirety and I really think you are too cool for words. I hate using the word “cool” to describe people but it just fits you so well! Your incredible presence and effortless style scream cool to me, in the best way possible. As a child I wanted to be you when I grew up and here I am as a twenty-one year old who still is waiting to be you. I LOVE YOU!!!!!
^^^ Oh. My. God. She’s seriously flawless and I am SO in love with the black and white photo!!
So there you have it, this weeks Woman Crush Wednesday: Stevie Nicks Edition. Who is your #WCW this week? What is your favorite creative endeavor from my woman crush? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
