Christmas Eve.

Finished my christmas shopping with enough time to go out and celebrate with my friends. Went to Bretz to Dance last night and it was packed. Surprisingly enjoyable though. :)

Leather Shorts- Forever 21; Denim Shirt- Thrifted; Boots- Steve Madden; Hat- Vintage; Chainlink and leather bag- Chanel

Recently uncovered this Chanel bag that is my mother's. She is neglecting it, so I figured I would give it the love it deserves. It's definitely a change from the HUGE bag I am used to carrying.

Anyways, Happy Holidays! Hope it's wonderful for everyone.




I always wait to the last possible moment to worry about Christmas shopping. I think, like many things in my life, I am a more productive shopper under pressure. I find exactly what I am looking for and get in and out. However, every year, I forget about the hoards of people I will have to navigate through. So, that was my day. I did however, finish my shopping and am quite proud of my selections. Anyway, here is my christmas shopping attire.

Boatneck Top- Chaps; Wool Skirt- Vintage; Boots- Santana Canada

Everything I wore today was found in a thrift store. They are amazing little places, aren't they?




Every year I look forward to New Years with all my might. Why? Because it's the only excuse I have to wear all the nice clothes that I bought throughout the year and haven't had an excuse to wear. This year, I have a couple looks in mind.

Studded Gloves -3.1 Philip Lim; Sequin Dress- Net-a-porter.com; Headband- Deepa Gurnani; Platform Booties- United

Faux Fur Scarf- Debenhams; Sheer Blouse- Dear Fieldbinder; Sequin Hotpants- House of Fraser; Over-the-knee Boots- Footcandy; Tights- Anna Sui

Jumpsuit- Halston Heritage; Fedora- Forever 21; Gold Cuff- Net-a-porter.com; Suede Lace-up Boots- Elizabeth and James

Here's to wishful thinking that I can pull together an outfit like one of these. But in the mean time, back to thinking about finishing my Christmas shopping.



More than plaid.

Burberry, You're killing me.

I ADORE that this line is rough and tough, but also very lady-like. I'm dying over the structured jackets.

I love everything about this editorial from November's Belgium Elle. It's everything I want and need from fashion right NOW.

Everything that I have seen styled by Anne Rabeux is just spot on. Also, I spent a good while trying to track down this model's name because she is gorgeous. No luck. Any help?



Milan Fashion Week.

With street style being my guilty pleasure, I'm a little ashamed to say that this year for Milan Fashion week (sorry, I'm a little late on this), I'm a little more excited to see what people were wearing OUTSIDE of the runway. I feel that the people who show up are sometimes just as fascinating as what gets sent down the catwalk. Here were my favorites. (All photos taken from Elle and Harper's Bazaar)

Oh, so much style. I would love to raid each of these women's closets. 



Refresh my Inspiration.

My style is inspired by various things in my life, and therefore, my inspiration changes with the hours of the day. Here are the things that currently make my mind explode with style ideas.

Bob Dylan

Queen Rania of Jordan (a strong woman with stronger style)-

Diane Keaton in Annie Hall-

Katherine Hepburn-

And a couple other things thrown in-

Really digging the idea of Male and Female mixing for fall. Menswear gone shockingly feminine. Hopefully, my brain will figure out a way to mix the two :)




My friend Sarah is an excellent knitter and can basically make anything. That being said, with winter nipping at my toes and my urges for everything knit, I have employed her to make me a thing or two. The first of these projects is a headband with an oversized bow. I spotted one on FORVER21's website a couple weeks back and HAD to have one. The one I own now, made by Sarah, is FAR superior and I couldn't be more happy :) Here is evidence of her genius.
The finished Headband:

Well, hope you all had a great weekend. Sad that it's over now.

I have been tearing apart my closet lately, working on adding pieces to my wardrobe that I LOVE and not just like. That being said, there are piles of things that I really like, so much so, that I can't get rid of them, but I don't know that I wear them enough to warrant keeping. So, my solution has been to do some serious surgery with the limited sewing knowledge I have, taking things from LIKE to LOVE. 

An example is this skirt.

I found it at a thrift store a while back and died over the pattern. The problem I always had with it was it's length. It was a mid calf length skirt, which normally wouldn't be an issue, but with the material being what it was, it didn't compliment the skirt. Instead it looked boxy and uncomfortable. So I hemmed it into a mini skirt and fell in love.

Lately, I have been playing with patterns. Which is way out of the norm for me. But I am having fun with it. So hopefully, the daring part of me will continue to branch out from my solid, neutral prison.
