Painted Metallic

This weekend I had a family get together. No, my weekends are not usually this hectic! I wore a painted metallic sweater from H&M and my challenge was to find a way to make it less New Year's appropriate and more everyday appropriate. Pairing metallic items with dark solid colored pants or shirts is a great way to do this. That is why I paired this sweater with navy blue high-waist pants. Another way it can be transformed into an everyday staple is to wear a button down shirt under the sweater. You can add your own twist to this by wearing a button down with a pattern like polka dots. The sweater is H&M, the pants are H&M, the necklace is Givenchy, and the watch is from Francesca's Boutique.

Animal Instincts

This weekend I went to a fancy shmancy party at my mom's friend's house and my animal intincts definitely came out. I looked like a snear (snake bear)! But I do think that animal print is going to be big in 2012. It was a lot of fun seeing everybody, chatting it up with them, and (of course) eating amazing food. This was the outfit I wore. I was trying to go for a classy, yet a bit edgy, take on a timeless faux fur coat. The snakeskin printed dress is Tracy Reese, the bronze shoes are Jessica Simpson, and the faux fur coat is Gallery. I tried to add a bit of glitz and glamour with crystal earrings, a bracelet, and a silver ring.

Do you think you will display your animal instincts during 2012? ?

2012 Inspiration

2012 Inspiration

Happy New Year Everybody! Start the New Year with a new wardrobe! This year I would like to build my wardrobe around vintage inspired pieces. I made this inspiration board to guide me (and hopefully inspire you too) to add timeless pieces into my outfits. I would also like to buy clothes with different materials, styles, and patterns and experiment with them. May this year be the best of our fashion lives!

What are your fashion resolutions for 2012?
