So I hit up the aforementioned Urban Outfitters sale bright and early this morning. I wanted to get up at 6 am and get to the mall right when it opened, BUT apparently life had other plans. My mom didn't wake me up until 8 am. Luckily I still managed to get to the mall before most others and check out the sale. I tried on 13 things! Which is about the most those dressing room hooks will hold. I ended up getting a $5 pair of shoes, $5 jeans, $15 dress, $10 sunglasses and a $20 romper. The romper is my absolute favorite. I've been looking for one forever and this one is absolutely perfect. Everything else is awesome too. I also hit up forever 21 and got a couple of necklaces, shirts, and a super cute peacoat.
Now if only UO was this affordable year-round. My wardrobe would be a lot better, thats for sure.
In the spirit of giving....err....actually I have nothing to give you. But! You should totally shop at Urban Outfitters tomorrow, I am super excited for their extra 50% off on sale promotion. Plus its still hot in Florida, so their on sale summer stuff is still wearable! I really am going to try and buy only school things though. I have enough dresses for awhile. If I had to rock one look every day it would definitely be this one below.
The tailored blazer and skinny jean look is one of my favorites, not to mention her hair is effortlessly cool and I'm always up for a black leather purse. Though I am just a mere mortal and will never be able to pull off this level of laid back perfection, I will always appreciate those who can.
Okay, back to playing with my presents. I already lost my TomTom..... how ironic that I lost the gadget that tells me how to find places. Ah well, time to dig under mountains of wrapping paper.
This is some serious metal work on this bodice. Obviously it's not anything wearable, unless you're Gaga, but I had to post it. It's just so inspiring to me. It proves that you can make pretty clothes out of unconventional materials. The mixture of the different size spikes, chains, and other hardware is something I don't see much and its really fascinating. Plus, any outfit with a leather glove I'll probably love. Oh and I don't usually comment on makeup, but I love the bold lip with the basically naked eye on this model. Lovely.
I have been admiring these cuffs for a long time. If they were more affordable they'd already be worn out to perfection. I love the idea of a cuff because they aren't conventional and, in my eyes, seriously underrated. They are stylish and actually look comfortable. Must have fall/winter accessory in warm places like florida where gloves aren't needed on a daily basis.
I have been lusting over these shoes for awhile now when just this weekend my good friend pointed out the two-tone tights the girl was wearing. I can't believe I didn't notice my favorite new tights paired with these funky shoes. And actually a fashion staple I can afford! I know what I'm spending my christmas money on!
Shoes are my absolute favorite fashion piece to look at and lust over. There are so many ways to make them interesting, and I think a good pair of shoes can make pretty much any outfit. Therefore I compiled some of my favorite shoes from this post on The FAD. All of the shoes are amazing but these few stuck out to me as something I'd love to have in my closet.
None of these images are new. Everyone knows about Rodarte's collaboration with Target. I got the chance to see the collection and purchase some pieces yesterday when I found out my local store had stocked it early. They didn't have the one thing I wanted the most, the ribcage dress, but I still got a few awesome pieces. I purchased the black shoulder bow dress, the black lace cardigan, and the tan and black lace dress. In pictures I didn't actually like the cardigans but when I tried one on in the store I fell in love with it. I wish I loved the asymmetrical sweater but I found, on me, it just looked like I got dressed in the dark. My friend tried on both the bikinis and I loved the black one, but the flower one just looked odd. A lot like a bib. It probably looks good on someone but I'm not sure who. She also tried on the blue tulle dress, which I loved, but she doesn't go out much so had no use for it. The last piece I'll talk about is the leopard dress. Everyone said it was a weird fit and I didn't want to believe it but its true. The hips look like a Lady Gaga dress, super over exaggerated. Which doesn't really work with the everyday Target girl. Hopefully someone out there has a perfect fit because it would be a shame for that awesome dress to never see the street. I'm going to look for the tights, bow belt, and the ribcage dress today at a different Target. Hopefully I find a few more pieces. Well have to go get ready for manicure day with the girls. I hope you all are sifting through the Target racks as we speak.
I'm really on this Haute Macabre kick lately. So the first like 50 posts will probably mostly be from there. But I can't help it. I'm not even super goth or into things of that nature, but the pieces they post are gorgeous and very well done so I can't help but be into it. There is something about this purse that I find fascinating. It isn't especially detailed, but the chains, zipper detail, and distressed leather juxtaposed with the gorgeous slouch is enough to have me counting my pennies. Too bad i'm still about $595 short...
This shoe were my ultimate inspiration for starting this blog. They really caught my eye and I wanted to find people that appreciate them as much as I do. So here they are in all their glory. Two words, Alexander McQueen. Of course they're amazing.
I don't consider myself a particularly innovative or creative person. My thing is fashion. I like to admire it, buy it, and dream about it. So since I can't create amazing things I decided I'd document them. But, unlike some fashion blogs, I only plan on documenting things I like and I want to remember about fashion. Shoes, bags, or entire outfits that catch my eye. I've been saving pictures for as long as I can remember but I figure this blog will give me an outlet for my envy and lust.
