I think this blog has been instrumental in forcing myself to choose bolder pieces. Up until this winter, I don’t think I ever would have considered fur, and now I have this black coat and a vest! Of course, they’re both faux fur, but they actually retain a lot of heat to keep me warm. Best of all, this one was on sale at Banana Republic! However, this has led to the slight problem of buying things with the excuse that it’s “for the blog!”. My fellow blogger and friend Gigi has a great nail polish blog and boasts a giant (growing) collection of polishes which she reviews.Click here to see her blog.
I wish you could see it better in these photos, but this full-length skirt is lace and the shirt has a bit more texture and sheen. I tied the shirt to make it tighter for better contrast against the flow of the skirt. With such a dark outfit, I added a very red based fuscia lip to create some dimension to the whole ensemble. Again, I love that my purse is a very dark green, and not black as it gives the purse more intrigue.
Its my second week back at school, and you can totally throw spit balls and paper wads at me, but I kind of love school. Aside from all the stress it provides, I love that feeling of truly gaining knowledge that is relevant and important to me. Hope you’re all doing well post-holidays!
