all things new

Wishing you all a Happy New Year! May 2010 bring you lots of endless laughs, beautiful memories, renewed relationships, ever lasting friendships, true joy and all things beautiful.

fuzzy wuzzy

I'd have to say this is a pretty irresistible steal. $19.99 for a cotton and cashmere sweaterdress at Victoria's Secret. I'm a sucker for any cashmere content! I think I'm going to have to pick one up for myself. Looking forward to cozying up with my sweaterdress :)

tis the season to look good

With the holiday season here, I bet we're all just making a mad dash to the mall to pick out that perfect outfit to strut our moves in. Attached are some great eye candy pieces that won't break the bank.

1. Blazer, Zara, Under $89
Throw this blazer with a pair of jeans to make that all so chic and androgenous look.

2. Knitted Panel Dress, Top Shop, $100
This dress is definitely not for the body conscious gal. If you've got the confidence, strut yourself in this and let the dress do all the talking.

3. Crystal and Pearl Pastiche Bracelet, J. Crew, $88

I'm all about accessorizing and this statement piece is a fabulous way to dazzle up your holiday wardrobe. It's so chic and classic.

4. Grainy Faux Leather Short, Forever 21, Under $100
Every girl should own at least one leather piece of clothing in her wardrobe (faux or real). Great way to add a little funkiness to your outfit.

5. Wool A-Line Coat, Victoria's Secret, $99
Look great and stay warm in this classic coat.

6. Lucca Couture Crepe Chiffon Dress, Urban Outfitters, $68
It's hard not to be moonstruck when you see this dress. I love the silver sash around the waist and embellishments along the trim.

7. Reformed Zora Dress, Urban Outfitters, Under $100
Flirty yet edgy. I love the exposed zipper in the back. Great way to show off your shoulders and elongate your back.

8. Urban Renewal Sweater Tunic, Urban Outfitters, $58
One-of-a-king piece made from vintage sweaters. Who knew romantic could look and feel so comfortable.

9. Leather Metallic Bag, Top Shop, $50
This bag is pretty in every way :)

10. Delectable Lace Tier Top, Forever 21, $22.80
This top is truly delectable... remind me of a cupcake! Throw a boyfriend blazer or leather jacket over this and you'll have everyone at the party checking you out!

Once again, I'm on cloud 9 because of this fabulous find on ebay. My first ever ebay purchase! I won the bid for ONLY $30.99. It's a faux fur leopard jacket with a hoody!... how ever so cute! Excuse the asian girl in the picture... it's not me.

So last night I hooked up with some fabulous ladies for good eats and dancing. It was teeth chattering cold so I donned this gorgeous REAL fur coat my boyfriend's aunt gave me last year as a gift. My best friend wasn't too impressed with me when she saw my coat. She thinks I'm insensitive for wearing REAL fur. However to my defense, it would have been extremely rude had I not accepted the gift. I believe she purchased the coat back in the 70's and now it no longer fits her so she gave it to me in hopes I'll put it to better use :) I'll be posting up pics of this vintage coat shortly... sorry PETA.

style alert

Ok, I suppose you can say I'm rather besotted with Olivia Palermo. This lady exudes style! She pulls off this classy, effortless, trendy but not over the top trendy look like no other. She never seizes to amaze me with her ensembles. Definitely two thumbs up for this fashionista!

black magic

Over the weekend, I accompanied my boyfriend at his Christmas work party. I overate, made a fool of myself on the dance floor, salsa danced with a Mexi-can (not Mexi-can't), and admired a super cute jacket this girl was sporting.

I've been noticing my wardrobe has been consisting a lot of black lately... hmm, have I suddenly turned goth???

Top, Forever 21- $19 (I think so...)
Skirt, Forever 21- $22.80
Thigh high boots, Make Me Chic - $27
Beaded flower headband, Claire's - $15

"A" is for Adorable and oh so Affordable!

I'm in shoe heaven! If I didn't already own a gazillion shoes, I would totally snag this up :)

Suede Platform Pumps, Cutesy Shoes - $24.99 (they also come in grey)

Oh Canada

Ever so cute and oooh , ever so cozy :) I'm definitely going to be waving my hands in celebrating 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics in these stylist mittens :)

2010 Winter Olympics Gloves, The Bay or Zellers - $9.99

black beauty

I know a great steal when I see one, and this is definitely a GREAT one!!!

I've been on the prowl lately looking for a leather clutch, but not wanting to spend and arm and leg. I gotta say, it was totally meant to be when I stumbled across this bag. The strap is removable so I can wear it as a shoulder bag or as a clutch... Oh how I luv versatility in fashion :) So I managed to convince my dear bf to drive 45mins to the postal office to pick up my bag. He's not exactly keen on how I'm always shopping, but I gotta say, he was pretty impressed when he found out how much I paid for this darlin' bag :)

Leather Clutch & Body Cross Bag, Nine West - $39.99

all sparkly 'n nice

I absolutely love Christmas. Family & friends coming together, great food & conversation, and of course, beautiful sparkly clothes & accessories. Then again, who says you have to wait for Christmas to come around to look all sparkly 'n nice :)

Beaded Tunic, Forever 21 - $29.99 (My best friend got mad at me because she spotted this tunic first but unfortunately it didn't fit her... she's a tiny gal)

Chain Necklace, Forever 21 - $8.80 (I feel like Mr. T whenever I wear this necklace)

Purse, Zara - $69 (This perfectly hand crafted, eclectic purse melted my heart when I first laid eyes on it. The flap is made of beautiful sequins and metal grommets, while the rest is made of sultry suede)

Thigh high boots, Make Me Chic - $27 (My jaw literally dropped when I spotted this online... could it be possible my boots cost me less than my dinner??? gotta luv it!)

Flower ring, Claire's - $15 (This ring is way too big on me because I've got the scrawniest alien-like fingers, but I just had to sport it that night :P)
