I Follow Rivers

(Dress - H&M, Shoes - Marshalls, Arm band - vintage from Cambodia)

I payed $5 for this dress, what a steal! This is what happens ladies when you wait for summer clearance during new Fall/Winter wear. H&M always has these fantastic sales. I'm in love with the way this dress flows in the wind and around me as I walk. The asymmetrical hem line is perfect for my petite body. 5'2" doesn't mean a restriction in dresses so I showed off my legs and had fun doing so. This is a perfect park date dress. Subtle enough to mix leopard prints and pair with nude colored wedges. This dress screams for a gust of wind for a new vamped up "Marilyn up-skirt" pose, but make sure you wear cute panties!

Last days of summer are here! I'm already fearing the winter and it hasn't even arrived yet.  I know I'm thinking of that to soon but it's because I'm excited for the Fall - New York Comic Con, family events and all that good stuff that comes at the end of the year. :-)

Hello There!

First off welcome to our blog. We are Sugar With Spikes...and everything nice. We are Irene and Jessica, Philly girls just trying to share creativity. We're not super rich or blog famous, we're humble and believe true fashion doesn't mean Chanel and Laboutin everything. With this blog we wish to share our fashion findings, inspiration, personal style, outings and creative ideas behind our lives. We are inspired daily by the people, things and stories in our lives and hope to capture them through our clothing, pictures and text.

What we ARE:

  • A blog about fashion, style, inspiration and photography.
What we are NOT:

  • Fashion snobs. True fashionistas know how to look good using everything available and within means.

We hope you enjoy our blog. Any feedback is much appreciated. 


Irene and Jess

muchos besos!
