I'm home for winter break and it is freezing here in D.C. Given this weather, I plan on being cute yet cozy while I run around and do some last minute Christmas shopping. Here's a look at what I'm wearing this break:
Chunky Knit Scarves (a must in this frigid weather)
Leopard Pumps (I just bought this pair from F21)
Oversized Sweaters (looks great with flats and heels)
Jeggings (at first I thought they were disgusting but they look better with boots and sweaters without the bulk of regular jeans)
American Apparel Leggings (the sheen on these leggings makes any outfit pop)
Lace Up Boots

Recently, I had to go to a semi formal event and found myself with nothing to wear. I usually wear dresses with some sort of embellishment and color because I love to stand out lol. But, this winter I have been drawn to the little black dress. I bought this lace dress over the summer and it is one of my new favorites for this time of year. There is nothing sexier than a simple chic look that doesn't look like you're trying too hard. I was so against the black dress because I thought it looked like a funeral ensemble, but now I am a believer!

I recently just added these two things to my Christmas list. I love this Juicy Couture "Wish" pendant. I think it is so girly yet edgy at the same time. I hate spiders, but if all of them looked like this I wouldn't mind them! I also adore this Dolce Vita dress. This year I am planning on visiting my linesisters in New York for new years eve. This is definitely the perfect dress to wear when ringing in the New Year!!!

I had not finished my last bite of Thanksgiving dinner before I was bombarded with Christmas commercials. I started to think about what I wanted for Christmas. At the top of my Christmas list this year is this emerald satchel from Coach's Kristin Collection. I love the color and the versatility. It is perfect for the transition from senior year in college to the workplace postgrad. For those of you that aren't really feeling the green, it comes in four other colors so there is an option for everyone. Let me know what is on your wishlist this year!!!

Before Lady Gaga...before Rihanna...before Nicki Minaj...there was only one Gwen. No Doubt is still one of my all time favorite bands. "Don't Speak" is a classic. Gwen's style, music, and overall presence is one of a kind. I NEED her to come out with a new album. In the meantime, here is one of my favorite songs from Gwen Stefani.

Shopping at chain stores can sometimes leave me feeling dull and uninspired. Everything is the same and five girls in front of you in line at the cash register all have the same thing. Whenever I need inspiration and something fresh I shop at nastygal.com. The site is amazing because it sells new and vintage clothing. Its like every fashionista's dream! Check it out!

I have been soooooo busy lately. I have not really had a chance to go out as much as I would like this semester (hence the lack of photos). But, here are a few pics of outfits I wore out recently (and another special appearance by Janelle in pic 2). The dress in the first photo was such a steal! I found it for $20 in The Alley an outdoor market in L.A. You can't really tell in the picture but the dress has an exposed zipper detail that goes around the waist and the shoulder. It adds a bit of edge to such a feminine dress.
P.s- I have got to get a new photo pose! The elbow on hip is getting quite repetitive lol
I have been loving Rihanna's new toned down street style lately. Here are some pics from her recent outings. I love her more feminine and toned down style. It's a refreshing change. By the way, her new album Loud is amazing. S&M is one of my fave tracks.

Two of my favorite pieces this fall are my navy blue anorak jacket from urban outfitters and my tan faux leather jacket from Forever 21. They both are so versatile and can be incorporated into many different looks. Although its getting much colder in Boston so I might need to start looking for a cute winter coat. I am thinking about getting the navy blue Kenneth Cole jacket in black. What do you all think? My friends hate the belt but I am kind of torn about it.
P.S- I hope everyone had some reckless fun on Halloween. I know I did ;)

A girl in one of my classes had on the cutest pair of lace up booties and I have been lusting after a pair for myself all day. I usually go for a taller, more polished boot, but these boots are calling my name. I love them in both the flat and the heeled version. I found some great pairs at Spring shoes (not pictured here). Check out their website for more options (myspringshoes.com).
P.S- Is anyone super excited for Gossip Girl tonight? Its my favorite guilty pleasure. The fashion is on another level!

I'm really into the bohemian look for the fall. I love this shirt from Forever 21 and I recently got it in a turquoise color. I can't wait to wear it in the fall with boots and a leather jacket for a hippie chic look. I just ordered a camel colored leather jacket that I think will go great with it. I will show pics once it comes!
p.s- Please excuse the artwork in the background. My suitemates and I are balling on a budget and had to make wall art out of magazine cutouts!!

Sorry it has been so long since I blogged. I have been so busy with school, sorority stuff, work, and just having fun! I will put pics up soon of all the fun times and outfits ;) But in the meantime I wanted to let you all in on a new personal favorite of mine. Those who know me know that I am obsessed with perfume and I have a new scent almost every month. The flavor of the month is Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Now Perfume. It is reasonably priced and has a bold, sexy smell that is guaranteed to turn heads.

Whenever I feel down in the fashion dumps, I always look to these ladies for inspiration. Zoe Kravitz and Vanessa Hudgens have both mastered the look of boho chic. Rihanna's fashion is fearless, you can't help but be inspired by it in some way. Kelly Rowland is a perfect lady. She always looks flawless and picture perfect. And Solange is a fashion chameleon. She is constantly changing her look and looks great in every one. I call these ladies my fab five. In my book, they can do no wrong :)

About a week ago, I went to a fall preview for a store in Arlington, VA. called Gossip on 23rd. I snapped a couple of pics backstage with the models. Gossip is a cool store because they do not price any of their items over $100! It is a very small boutique but it is one of my go to spots to find some original items. Check out their website here:
Also, the romper that I am wearing in the last photo is one of my favorite summer buys from Urban Outfitters. It is a perfect day to night outfit.
