karmaloop.











free people oversized button down shirt and gianna coat; forever 21 dark wash skinny jeans; H&M lace bra; leopard scarf from eBay; CHRISHABANA triple spike necklace; marc by marc jacobs black pyramid stud bracelet; forever 21 stud bracelet, studded watch, boyfriend watch, and corded bracelet; charlotte russe black stone ring; fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring and claw ring; frye 8R harness boots.
last week i found out that i came in second in the karmaloop & chictopia street style contest, and won a $150 karmaloop.com gift card! so awesome - i'd like to say thanks again to karmaloop and chictopia for choosing me.

with the money burning a whole in my pocket, i went to their cool website that's chock full of edgy streetwear and immediately browsed the shoe section. nothing caught my eye, so i went on to the jewelry, which is where i saw this CHRISHABANA triple spike necklace. i'd seen it and other jewelry from the brand on another style blog and knew that it was just what i was looking for. next, i went through jackets, blazers, and sweaters (i usually refrain from buying pants online because i'm picky about the fit), didn't find anything, and then hit the jackpot when i browsed through shirts and saw this sheer, white, basically perfect free people oversized shirt. i have been looking for a white shirt just like this for who knows how long, and now i finally have one. i couldn't be happier with my choices.

just got this really great fitting pair of jeans from forever 21 for only $12 (SCORE), and the awesome boyfriend watch is f21 too. the marc by marc jacobs stud bracelet is a new acquisition as well, via eBay. i love stacking my wrist with baubles, although i only go overboard on my days off since work is very hands-on and lots of jewelry can get annoying.

my boyfriend took the pics in this post...he's getting better, as you can see! thanks babe =)


this is the view outside of my home right now. i always say, if it's going to be blistering cold, it might as look pretty and snow. we just got a good 4-5". always better when you don't have to drive in it.
have a good day!

I agree with Cat, that shirt IS awesome! Love the oversized-ness and peek-a-boo effect it has. Congrats on winning the contest, I think you spent those earnings VERY well :)

And you were NOT kidding about your weather huh? We got like a couple cm, and then the rain melted it all. So that is why I can run around town wearing what I wear!

Fashion Therapist said...

Great outfit. I really really love the oversized shirt.

caylee said...

bijoubijou - thank you so much! xx

cat - it is like the most amazing shirt i own! you have to get it. mine's a size small; it already runs a little big. i sent you a tweet so you'll know about the size, since you'll probably get my response on twitter before you get it here =)

mila - thank you! that's the ultimate compliment, but my outfits are pretty simple - anyone can wear them!

studded hearts - thanks yenny! seriously, i'd consider myself lucky but i NEVER win anything, so it was pretty cool to win this contest! i hope you find an oversized shirt too, and soon =)

c a s s i e - i definitely have a set style, haha. but thank you so much!

georgia - thank you! i heart casual =)

confessions of a marc addict. - they are the PERFECT everyday boots; you must get some. the low 8Rs with the harness were my personal favorites, so i just had to get them. definitely worth the $$!

jacqueline - thank you, as always! xo

fashion chalet - it came down literally all day and i couldn't help but stare out the window at it. and when the wind came, it was just swirling around so beautifully. my camera couldn't capture that, dammit! lol. anyway, thanks erika =)

the haute pursuit - thanks V! the shirt's so awesome that i want to wear it everyday, even though it's the middle of winter and it's more a spring/summer shirt. oh well, it's perfect for work since it's loose and i can layer to make it more practical when i'm outside. i don't know why, but i didn't expect the material to be so sheer and it was such a pleasant surprise; i love it even more! and the pockets, oh the pockets. it's just perfect haha. so is the necklace.
and i was definitely not kidding about the weather, as you can see! like i said in the post, i really don't mind the cold if it's going to look this pretty outside. =)
