Another Long Winter Trying to Fight this Freeze

Waiting on the cold’s got a hold on me

Baby, it’s COLD outside! Here in the north east it’s been a steady ten degrees Fahrenheit for a couple of days now and all I have to say is praise the gods for Uniqlo’s HeatTech, I honestly don’t know how I survived before I discovered with almost 3 years ago…This heat generating line features Japanese technology in light weight basics which are perfect for looking effortlessly chic in these below freezing temps.

Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend

20121216-093531.jpg

The winter holidays are in full swing! With that you still may be scratching your head with what to get someone in your life. Well, I’m here to say you can’t go wrong with diamonds (or any other precious stones)!

As you may know, Pantone just released “Emerald” as the color of the year for 2013. May ladies probably already have their share of emeralds, but it’s time for the rest of the world to stock up so they can remain on trend. While jewelry stores carry plenty of the green-hued stone, don’t forget to check thrift stores and costume jewelry to find this one!

Now, another important color for the upcoming seasons is royal blue. An overly saturated epitomical blue in all forms. But since we’re talking jewelry today, I suggest blue diamonds.

Lastly, diamonds. We all know the costume jewelry “diamond and neon” trend right? I love it, but sometimes you need to class things up a smidge more. I’m a gal for Tiffany’s, and the key necklaces are a great gift for any girl (I know I adore and cherish mine). Go for something with personality; Macy’s and Zales carry diamond pendants in an array of shapes (I have a star) to add to the specialty of the gift. Now lets not forget watches; if you’re on a budget, TJ Maxx almost always has an exceptional selection of Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Fossil, and more watches (and other fine jewelries!).

What do you think about these precious stones? too much or just enough?

Ugly Sweater Season

Welcome to December; the month of holiday parties, ugly sweater clad whether it’s the theme or not. I was asked to model for a poster for an upcoming Ugly Sweater party by the talented Greg Easton, and jumped at the fun opportunity! I borrowed the sweater vest from my mom, and I love her, but she has quite the collection of hideous holiday themed knits. At least they’re fun and keep us jolly and laughing!

Man Repelling as a Ghetto Republican WRapper

**Please note this title is satirical**

_DSC8025

Completely channeling Leandra AKA The Man Repeller with this look; pattern mixing to the extreme. The idea of pattern mixing used to send my OCD into a fit just thinking about it, but the idea has been growing on me and I must say it’s quite invigorating to dress a little “crazy” and make the people around me roll their eyes. In fact, when I came out with this on my photographer friend giggled and mentioned I look like a white ghetto republican rapper (hence the title). I went with it; threw on my favorite rap sing-a-long of Nelly’s Hot in Herre, and had some fun shooting this.

A Leopard Never Loses Her Spots

You can take the girl from the city, but you can’t take the city from the girl; but you can make everyone stare when she’s the only one wearing heals so she feels self conscious and over dressed and starts wearing flats all the time. #welcometomysuburbanlife

Sorry my outfit posts have been rather lackluster the past few months; I’m hoping they’ll change as I’m on a new regimen of reading more fashion news and staying current and up to date and caring less about what these suburbanites think of my “Scandalous” ensembles. This outfit though, will get a spicing up soon enough, but figured I’d share my new dress with you all anyway! I got it at TJ Maxx, working on my Maxxinista cred. It’s tight, jacquard knit, warm, and such a fun print; the perfect dress for a wintery date night.

I’ve finally gone out on a mini-shopping spree and purchased some fashionably relevant necessities! For instance, this jacket from the Army/Navy surplus store was only $10, and I’ve worn it literally everyday since I got it! Also, sneaker wedges! Mine are BDG brand and were bought at Urban Outfitters, and again, I’ve worn them everyday since I got them. They’re soooo comfy but after 4 days in wedges even I think I need a break!
