Bre's Week In Links/Instagrams 6-29-12


Man tries to sue ex-wife over shoes. Uh, what?

 This wedding band marks your finger with the words "I"M MARRIED". Clever!

 DIY glitter polish!

 A friend just started up her blog on life as a stripper, and it's already totally fascinating!

 I got a waffle iron from a friend recently, so now I'm obsessed with making waffles. When someone suggested that I add stuff to them, my mind was blown. I started looking up recipes and about died when I saw this: PUMPKIN WAFFLES. TWO OF MY FAVORITE THINGS EVER COLLIDING IN DELICIOUSNESS. YESPLZ.

 Nubby Twiglet on building your font library. I need serious help in this department, all my fonts are so tacky :/

 OHHAY I GUESS THURSDAY WAS INTERNATIONAL CAPSLOCK DAY. I love how the site is so Angelfire-y and hideous XD

 These Anastasia Radevich concept shoes are amazing!

 Loved this post on body image from Elizabeth.

 Take 20% off in my Etsy shop until the 4th with code JULY4TH!

Wow, I barely took any pictures this week :c Oh well, here they are anyhow:

Greetings from Pride!
Jade has seriously taken to his Magna-Doodle. We can't go anywhere without it!
Here's hoping for more next week! Hope you guys have a great weekend!

Blogiversary Giveaway Reminder!

Just wanted to remind everyone that there's still time to enter the By The Throat One Year Blogiversary giveaways, which end this Sunday (7/1) at midnight! Gogogo! Get your entries in!

Electric Sparkle Giveaway

No Mark At All Giveaway

Brandon's Beads & Chain Giveaway

Twisted Pleasures Adornment Giveaway

Good luck, everyone!

Knockoff Ninja #8 - YSL "Palais" Pump

YSL, why you do this to me?
YSL "Palais" in Black Suede available at Nordstrom ($720.00), Net-A-Porter ($720.00)

Patent Platform Peep Toe Pump in Teal (also Red and Taupe) available at Go Jane ($15.95), Kiwi Look ($32.95)

Anne Michelle "Rival01" in Black Suede (also Red Suede, Nude Patent and Black Patent) available at Make Me Chic ($27.00)
Zigi Soho Platform Shoe in Black (also nude and silver glitter) available at ASOS ($69.59)

I am smitten with the silhouette of this pump SO HARD. Flared heels have a tendency to look a bit too "costume-y" (unless they're Miu Miu!!!), but these are so subtle that it totally works. Pair that with an absolutely gorgeous teal patent, and I'm sold!

What do you think?

July Call for Sponsors!

Just wanted to remind you guys that I recently implemented the Passionfruit ad system, which makes it super easy to advertise on By The Throat! You can purchase your ad space on the spot instead of waiting for an invoice from me, and ads will go up the second they're approved! How awesome is that? My rates are also ridiculously low for the time being, since my readerbase is still growing ;D

So, if you have a handmade shop, lifestyle blog, fashion blog, or if you're as passionate about shoes as I am, (although I'm certainly not limited to those!) come on dowwwwnnn and take a gander at my Sponsor page!

Thanks! Hopefully we can work together!

Seattle Pride Parade 2012!

Soooooo, you guys. PLEASE remind me why this was my first year ever attending Pride? BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW. I had an absolute blast! I'd been meaning to go for about a decade, and was even almost out the door for it in 2010, but something always managed to get in my way! However, this year I was absolutely determined to go, as I was invited to walk with the Unicorns From Beyond the Garden of Hedon. I planned everything out weeks in advance because I was NOT going to miss it again for anything! DO YOU GUYS HEAR ME?! *fist-shaking, grumbling*

In lieu of Shoes-day Tuesday, I'm gonna overload your browser with sexy unicorns and rainbows. Enjoy!

First off, can we TALK about Chev's bustle? This thing was awe-inspiring, and her whole costume was custom-made by Stefanie of Idolatre Clothing Co (seen to the side with the purple hair). GORGEOUS! (source: Chev)
Here's me before the parade, trying to document my makeup :3 (source: me)
Morgue Anne, Chev, yours truly, and Ronnie. (source: Miss Christy)
In position, waiting to start walking (lolz at my bitchface).
A closer look at Stef's gorgeous handmade headpiece.
Amy with Gay Batman right after he accidentally rollerbladed over Chev's bustle. HA!
If you look closely, you can see me picking trash out of Chev's bustle.
Best costume ever. (source: Seattle PI)
Lovely ladies yaaaaayyyy!
Stef and Chev. D'awwww.
Me and Victoria at Seattle Center after the Parade. I'm missing my cue here to do a dramatic unicorn pose. I am super oblivious to all of the things -_-

These photos are all taken from everywhere, so if you took any of these, feel free to let me know and I'll credit you :D

You'd best believe I'm going all out next year! I CAN'T WAIT!

Bre's Week In Links/Instagrams 6-22-12


 Loved Danielle's thoughts on "being a non-believer". The Ann Druyan quote at the end is great.

 Zucchini brownies? ALL OVER THAT.

 An adorable Dolly-style hair tutorial.


 Best annoying/addicting mashup ever.

Chev's cats greeted me like this last week D: CATSPIRACY.
My completed headpiece for the Pride Parade on Sunday! GAHHH I'M SO STOKED!
Jade loves him some chocolate chippy waffles :D
I made Jade this hat weeks ago, but just now got around to photographing him in it (he wouldn't sit still!). So cute!

That's all for this week! If you happen to be at Seattle Pride on Sunday, you might see me and Chev marching with 60+ other unicorns! My first year ever at Pride AND I get to be in the parade?! AMAZING.

See ya next week!
