Charlotte Russe for about $15.00. I don't know why I sometimes wear a new item right away/ for a week straight and sometimes (as in this case) - I don't wear my new item for a while! Who knows!? Anyway, I have reached for this dress a few times and thought it looked too dressy. Of course I have seen other bloggers with leather/ lace and denim/lace combos, but I was holding out for my look to come to me. With the holidays coming up, I will be glad to wear this with black or red heels and go all glam, but for everyday - and not trying to look like a runaway bride either - it was proving difficult to wear without covering most of it up with a big coat or sweater! In comes Tommy Hilfiger comfy wedge boots with shearling liner and noname purse to kind of match (noname is not the designer but rather a purse from a thrift store with no tag inside!), and my freind/ photographer Deon's hat! I love how easy going I felt after these simple little accessory additions. So what are some other ways we could wear a lace dress? and how cool is the purple striped fence?!
It is a cold, rainy and ugly Monday, but pepped it up with orange velvet dress (also seen here) and the trusty leopard boots - which you can see in a couple posts below! I love this fringed sweater cape my Mom got me years and years ago. I love that I can pull the neck up as shown when really cold or wear folded over. The beige sweater under the cape is from Target! Big white ring from F21. This outfit is so comfortable (and warm!) Have a great week everyone xoxoxo

What are some of the things you are dreaming of?

I was in Macy's the other day about to check out with my new jeggings and saw this beauty hanging all by her lonesome - well beside a sweatshirt top that was killer with long leather patches (might have to go back and get that!). In pops the last image in my head of the Alexander Wang cut out dress with leather accents (the sweatshirt actually looked really like the Wang dress above in color and detail more so than the dress I bought) - so I had to get this pretty decent knock. I forget who made it - will update the blog later - but it is as comfy as it looks. The added pockets and deduction of the cut outs makes it all the more wearable as well. I will definately be wearing this a lot... this time was paired with my Guess boots and a wooden bracelet from an arts fair in Charlotte.
The post title is a nod to one of my all time fave movies - Sweet November. If you have not seen it - you should - and alone or with the girls. Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves give a stellar performance and you will cry your eyes out or your heart is made of stone! Sadness of the story aside, really big reminder of why life is worth living the way you want to live it.
