Stripe Tights

Vintage coat // Loft dress // Nordstrom tights // Target shoes

Happy New Year! Made all those new year resolutions that you know you aren't going to keep? :) Well I hope that everyone had a great 2011, and what better way to end the year than with a pair of vertical stripe tights!

Christmas Sweater

Vintage sweater // Glo Jeans jeans // Deena & Ozzy shoes // Macy's bag

Just a casual post. I've practically been living in sweater + jean combos all break. And who doesn't love a good ol' Christmas sweater? :)

Christmas Plaid

 Worthington leather jacket // Vintage blouse, shorts, and belt // Simply Vera necklace // Target shoes

This is what I wore yesterday since the shorts were absolutely screaming Christmas. And recently I've really been loving plaid on plaid, so hopefully I'll have a post of that up sometime. (Although probably not too soon since these are the only plaid bottoms I have!) I hope everyone had a great Christmas!

Almost Christmas

Dockers sweater // Vintage skirt, bracelet, and glasses // Deena & Ozzy shoes

Moving has been really tiring, but I've found a lot of my parent's old clothes that they don't want anymore. I found a couple sweaters (the one I'm wearing was my dad's) and some skirts. There were a lot of really nice coats too but they were unfortunately not my size. Well it's almost Christmas! I hope everyone has a great break!

Casual Holiday Looks

Casual Holiday Looks

So here's the casual look guide as promised.

For just lounging around at home I like to keep things simple in chunky knits and flats. I also really love comfy fabrics like velvet and corduroy which are great for the holidays. And of course I had to throw in some bling.

Holiday Looks

Holiday Looks

Sorry for the inactivity! I was really busy with finals this week and I'm actually moving on Sunday so we've been busy packing. I couldn't do an outfit post since most of my clothes are being packed but I've put together some holiday looks since a lot of you are probably going to holiday parties. :)

Some tips:
~Faux Fur: I love faux fur and I think it's such a great way to add some instant glamour to an outfit. I think it's esp. great  in colorful hues for parties.

~Sparkle: Sequins, glitter, and shine are perfect for the holidays!

~Metallic and Jewel Tones: Rubies, emeralds, sapphires, silvers and golds are all great colors to look festive.

~Leather: Sorry I don't have any pictured, But I love a great leather skirt or short with an oversized sweater for a casual chic look.

~Accessorize: I think that a great statement necklace is always fabulous for parties. And for bags, I really love the envelope clutch trend! To top it all off, wear a pair of killer shoes and you're all set! :)

P.S. For all those who are simply taking going to it easy at home with family (like me), don't worry, I'll have a post with some casual holiday looks up soon!

Jacket: Conrad C Collection , Sweater: Old Navy , Skirt: Vintage , Tights: Wet Seal , Shoes: Target , Necklace (worn as anklet): Simply Vera , Belt: vintage

It doesn't show up too well on the photos but the tights are very sparkly and add a bit more interest to the outfit. Also, I've really been loving anklets, and this necklace was perfect since you can simply wrap it around a few times and tie.

Catholic School Girl

Sweater-Jacket: Alexandra Bartlett , Shirt: vintage, Skirt: unknown , Tights: Forever 21, Shoes: Target, Bracelet: Macy's

The skirt just happens to remind me of a Catholic school girl. (I'm not Catholic or anything.) I unfortunately didn't find anything extraordinary on Black Friday but I did get a pair of new shoes! Hopefully I'll have a post with them up soon!

Dress: Ann Taylor , Jacket: Kohls , Shoes: H&M , Scarf: vintage

Sorry for the lack of updates. I've been experimenting with a different camera lens (2nd picture), but the lighting today wasn't great and most of the shots turned out strange. But I'll try again sometime later and we'll see. :)

Shirt: Charlotte Russe , Romper: Hangten , Shoes: Target , Scarf: Macy's

I'm absolutely loving everything kimono inspired nowadays! I really want a kimono sleeve dress but this shirt will do for now~ Plus I found it at an outlet so it was super cheap!

And congrats to Anya for winning Project Runway! She wasn't my favorite designer but you can't argue that her opening dress was absolutely gorgeous! Who were you rooting for?
