landslide.




free people gianna wool coat; forever 21 wrap draped cardigan, faux fur vest, and shiny zipper leggings; donni charm donni forever scarf; fashionology.nl cross necklace; H&M divided red fingerless gloves; alice + olivia for payless wedge boot.

i begged and bribed and finally got the boyfriend to take pictures of me in our backyard (or actually the sideyard if you want to get technical). yes! i'm amazed at how good they turned out. hopefully this will turn into a more permanent photographer/model relationship, and we'll venture into other cool areas, because i'm so so in love with this new camera and the quality of the photos it takes.
sorry about the same pose in every shot; it was about 35 degrees out and we were kind of hasty to get inside to warmth and blankets.

this is my idea of a perfect outfit: layers, black, fur, draping, oversized, skinny, neutral, wedges. and it also includes three of my favorite pieces from forever 21. i'll be wearing versions of this look all winter, and it will never get boring. i like consistency and repetition in all aspects of life, including clothing.

the free people coat is my first purchase from the brand and it's easily the best piece of outerwear i've ever owned. i'm relying its versatility as my only coat to get me through the season.

BIG thanks to the lovely ladies at donni charm for this amazing scarf; i adore its softness, the subtle metallic sheen, and the "love" knot =)

I'm loving this ensemble -- many greatness in one! Love the coat and the fur vest especially! The scarf looks soooo cozy, and your fingerless gloves totally add that hint of glam!

Give your boyfriend this to read:

Thank you sooooo much for taking these pictures of Caylee.

I know it's not easy to take pics but honestly it really REALLY is appreciated. If you could please PLEASE continue to take some more of her that would be great.

We like checking out her great blog and these pictures with this new camera have made a WORLD of difference.

Thank you!!!!!!

ps. Caylee will get you whatever you want at H&M if you continue. Right Caylee? ; ) ok maybe that's TOO much...

caylee said...

THANK YOU so much everyone! i promise, i am going to do everything in my power to continue taking outfit pictures outside like these. it's definitely worth the time and effort, and because i'll be done with college (forever!) this wednesday, i'll have the time and will want to put in the effort. lol. but all of your kind words and support continue to amaze me. i love each and every one of you! XO

grace - my favorite thing to do is find the hidden treasures at f21 =)

leflassh. - he better! lol. the begging and bribing might have to continue...

dylana - i am definitely checking out their site more and more after purchasing this amazing coat.

karen - LMAO! thank you karen =) i showed this to my boyfriend. he looked sort of smug and proud, hahaaaaaa. but hopefully it knocked some sense into him - taking pictures is not that bad! even if it does cut into precious xbox playing time. and i already do buy him whatever he wants from H&M, so i'll have to think of something else!

song of style - it worked this time! i'm about to do it again in a matter of hours...we'll see if it works =) & thank you!

anon 12:59 - that's a great question, and while i'm not too sure how it all happened, but i kind of contribute it to two things: being a part of the blogging world before starting mine, and my chictopia/lookbook.nu/and myspace accounts 1) i have been a part of the blogging world for two years now, not as a blogger, but as an avid reader. i read and commented and followed many many blogs during those two yeras and actually became good friends with quite a few bloggers. one of those was cat from knighttcat.com. she had seen some of my outfit posts on chictopia and on my myspace before i started my blog, so when i did finally start if you seek style last july, she posted one of my outfit pics and a link to my new blog on her blog - with the popularity and large number of people who visit her blog daily, it definitel helped me gain readers. they came from her blog to mine after hearing about it. 2) i had a chictopia account where i posted outfits for around 3 months before i started reading my blog - the response i got there was great; the positive feedback from my chictopia readers was one of the reasons why i actually started a blog, and when i did, my "fans" from chictopia easily came over from there and started following my blog. i had also been posting outfits on my myspace since november of 2008, 8 months before i started my blog, so again friends from that site who liked my outfits came to my blog, and i also have my lookbook.nu that has helped me gain readers.

andy - it really does! thank you so much. you are one of my favorite bloggers/lookbook users, btw =)
