Party Skirt

{LOFT cardigan, LOFT shell, JCrew skirt, cornerstore tights, Steve Madden boots and Forever 21 necklace}

This is what I wore last Saturday night for a night out on the town. I’d like to say that Kendi’s tip on shopping as part of her Create a Working Closet Series on window shopping to get the best price is so true. I was eying this sequined skirt on JCrew’s website for weeks (it was sitting at a pricey $128 online), and then one day I hit up the store and it was marked down + an additional 40% off which made it about $54.00. I bought it immediately. Waiting for that item you want to go on sale can be completely worth it, especially if you can try it on at the store to make sure it’s a match made in heaven!

Have you gotten any good deals in store or online recently on an item you have been waiting for?

Holidays Are Here

I wore this last Friday night to a friend’s Holiday Party! It was TONS of fun, I’m so glad I went!

Hope everyone gets some time off for the Christmas holiday to relax and treat themselves this week!

Madewell Wishlist

How do I resist Madewell everyday? No clue. Madewell (if someone you are living under a rock for the past few years) is J.Crew’s little sister brand, and you can see the similarities in style/styling/price. Somehow, there is something about the way Madwell’s pieces are, they just appeal to me more than J.Crew! I wish I made a bit more every month so I could buy every piece in each season’s collection! Oh yeah also if you are an Alexa Chung lover, she had a collaboration collection with Madewell which was launched earlier this fall. Truth be told it was sold out within days! Anyways, here are a few dresses from my personal wishlist.

I just love how each look is styled. Don’t you?

But the best piece I could ask for this winter would be this adorable hat! Too bad they don’t have it in my big head’s size anymore!

New Shoes

Say hello to my NEW shoes!

Wait for it…

I ordered the Jeffrey Campbell Mariel last August as a pre-happy birthday gift to myself from Urban Outfitters. They finally arrived on Tuesday. I can’t wait to wear them out! I love that they are Miu Miu inspired. This is the closest I will get ever get to a pair of Miu Miu shoes probably. If only I made way more money than I already do! Haha.


Also, this weekend is the Jon Stewart Rally for Sanity in DC. Is anyone going? There are supposed to be tons of people attending. The Huffington Post is aparently busing people down from NYC! I’ll be there so let me know if you will be too!
