tricks and treats.










1)bb dakota o'sullivan blazer
2)H&M oversized cardigan
3)bird skull necklace and leopard scarf from eBay
4)forever 21 faux leather skirt
5)silence & noise double breasted blazer

here are some of my favorite pieces that i have yet to wear on the blog.
everything is fairly new; the cardigan is really new, just got it today (LOVE).
some of these are the things i talked about getting as birthday presents for myself back in september.

still excited over the fact that i get to choose from these while getting dressed in the morning.

the perfect outfit.

(source - refinery29)

the perfect outfit - well, at least that's what refinery29 calls it. and i think i'd have to agree.
black fur vest? check (just got one from forever 21 last week). leather pants? check. leopard scarf? one's on its way to me now. everything else? check, check, check, check.
doesn't finding simple new outfit inspiration make you giddy? can't wait to take this for a spin.

happy feet.





H&M divided black faux leather jacket and patent flats; H&M belt (and lace bra underneath); forever 21 tee, harem-like pants, and studded watch; target bracelet; zara studded bag.


wearing flats for the first time on the blog! these and my nine west wedge boots (not the alice + olivia for payless ones) are what i wear to work, because running up and down the sales floor in any type of high wedge/heel just ain't happening. with their thin soles, these flats can sometimes get more uncomfortable than my heels, especially when i wear them for long periods of time. ok, enough about shoes. but i do have shoes on the brain right now =)

again, sorry for the crappy quality photos.

grayscale.



(source - fashiongonerogue)

i was drawn to the styling in these photos, but the fact that the outfits were originally in color combinations like canary, purple, and red did nothing for me (not my style). after way too much thought, i took them to my photo editor, converted them to grayscale (easy as that), and now they are perfect, in my opinion =)
definitely regretting not buying a black maxi dress this summer to wear with (faux) fur and boots now; wanting a near floor-length sweater duster to throw over everything.

fashion doesn't sleep.

maaaaan i feel like i've missed so much...just now catching up on the rest of PFW thanks to the style.com iPhone app (genius), barely read any of my favorite blogs lately (bloglovin' is telling me that i have 300+ new posts to read), have a pile of unread october and november issues of elle, vogue, nylon, lucky, and marie claire. what i have to do is not coinciding with what i want to do. ahh the joys of life.

here are the rest of my favorites from paris fashion week: stella mccartney, givenchy, chloé, ann d., haider ackermann, tim hamilton, lanvin, maison martin margiela, and chanel.

inspiration at the moment:



anything and everything dree.





fur, knits, layers, abbey lee, sparkles, shoulder details, proportions, layered bracelets, ankle booties.

oh i think i might have found some low-cut ankle booties...they look a helluva lot like these:

now i just have to see if my credit card will let me order them.

even more crazy-busy days are ahead of me.
have a great week everyone =)

oh, and all comments from the past three posts have been replied to.
thank you so much for all of your continued support!

finalement.



H&M divided black boyfriend blazer; zara oversized silk button down and studded bag; forever 21 lace tank top, shiny zipper leggings, cross necklace, and studded watch; kohls winged ring; nine west lace-up ankle boots.

at last, i have the zara bag. you know, the one i've been pining over for almost two months. i'm a little behind on the game, and it may be been-there-done-that by now, but to me this bag is just like the givenchy nightingale - no matter how old it gets, i'll still want it just the same.

BIG BIG thanks to the amazing francheska from fashion canvas for making it all happen. i gave her money for the bag and she bought it and shipped it to me all the way from spain. thank you girl, i'll be forever grateful =)

just realized this, and i can't believe it, but i've never posted these boots here on the blog! ahh the nine west cuzza boots, my absolute favorite pair of shoes in my closet. literally cannot think of an outfit i'd wear that these don't got with. i got them last december and wore them nearly every single day until may (if you followed me in my beginnings on chictopia, then you already know how much i love them). they are broken in like an old pair of jeans and are now more comfortable than my flats - that's saying a lot. so excited to be wearing them again.

and yeah, i'm awkward in front of the camera and can't pose. bleh.

can't think of anything better right now than a cozy, oversized sweater, a good book, and some hot chocolate.

p.s. all comments from the previous five posts have been answered! sorry it took me so long =)

strappy platform heaven.


(source - style.com)

it's all about the shoes, and i'm sure that everyone agrees that these from givenchy s/s 2010 are INSANELY good.
i want them in my wardrobe. promise i'd wear them with everything ;)

p.s. loved the entire givenchy collection as well. wayyy too many amazing jackets, pants, and dresses (well entire looks) for me to try and make a collage of my favorites. the shoes are good enough for now...back to homework.

been wearing these thick thigh-high socks out to dinner, around the house, to bed...so comfortable and warm. oh, & i had shorts on underneath this sweater =) the weather here has finally realized that it's fall, so all of my new goodies are getting to come out and play.

autumnal.

(source - fashiongonerogue)

between this last post and the last, you can easily see that i'm more than obsessed with finding fall inspirational photos, and this one's so good!
dark, girly layers, wet look leggings (probably some sort of killer boots) - i have all of the ingredients for this pretty cold weather outfit. definitely a look i'll be trying out soon.
