pockets and pleats.

free people wool gianna coat; ecote cardigan from urban outfitters; target v-neck pocket tee and tights; H&M trousers and scarf; forever 21 bucket bag, nailhead stud belt, boyfriend watch, and chain bracelet; CHRISHABANA triple spike necklace; marc by marc jacobs pyramid stud bracelet; charlotte russe stone filigree ring; fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring and claw ring; steve madden booties.

whoa 4am post. it's so weird to think how some people are just now starting their day, while i'm getting ready to crash. these trousers photographed so poorly. i really hope they don't look too ill-fitting here, because i didn't think to smooth them out before shooting. oops. shiny fabric is sometimes not a good thing, but the pics here don't do them justice; i love the pockets and pleats on these, and cuffing the bottoms to show off some simple booties. got this cool little bucket bag at forever 21 to hold me over while i try and find a way to fix my beloved and beat-up zara bag. the zipper is broken and the missing stud count is at three and counting =( wishing you all a very fantastic first week of february.

i'll be working hardcore on the blog store this week; it should be up this weekend! and sunday was my boyfriend's (this blog's part-time photographer, haha) birthday; happy birthday babe. X

I really love your diary looking! How do you do to wear like this everyday???

Do you know any blog like yours you can recommend me?



aussie said...

Hey, I like your outfits a lot and that's why I like to follow your blog.
But as a minus I have to say the quality of the photos - and I don't mean just the camera, I mean the back ground. It's always the same, and I'm guessing it's always a bad light, cos you're using flash. Could you post photos from outside in natural sunlight? You wear a lot of dark colors, and it's hard to separate you'r black scarf from dark gardigan and often dark bottom.
Just giving some comments. I hope you got that I like your style a lot !
:))), xx

love the trousers, dear! and don't worry. they don't look bad at all. didn't notice the crease if ever there was any.

by the way, where did you get your Chictopia Style Icon badge? I can't find it in the website!

Carolina said...

so cute! ugh i hate it when you get hardware on a bag & then it falls off...grrr. i would take it to a shoe/luggage repair shop. that's where i usually take my leather bags.

good luck!!

caylee said...

emilie - thank you!

lucy - thank you! we always want what we can't have - i kinda wish it was spring here! lol. =)

nina - thank you!

no victims, no fashion - thank you! and no, lol, i don't always "dress up" or try to look extremely stylish everyday. my uniform consists mostly of skinny pants and oversized tops with a blazer and boots. as for blogs, i really don't know. you mean blogs that are a mix of inspirational images and outfit posts? right now some of my favorites are: fashionsquad.com, leflassh.com, popcultureafternoon.blogspot.com, songofstyle.com, colormenana.blogspot.com, natalieoffduty.blogspot.com, phosphenefashion.com, and vanillascented.freshnet.se ....actually just check out the link list here on my blog in the sidebar; the one labeled "my daily haunts". these are all of my favorites!

aussie - thank you for your compliments and constructive criticism! the only thing i have to say is that right now, it's frigid cold outside (well below freezing) and i do not want to freeze to death going outside just to take outfit photos, so i prefer to take them inside now while it's still winter. for instance, when i wore this outfit and then later took these pictures, it was sleeting outside - no way i could shoot outside. the other thing is that it gets dark around 6:30pm, and the only time i really have time set aside to take outfit photos is late at night...so again, that leaves me only the option of taking them indoors. believe me, i want to be outside in natural lighting as much as you want me to. hopefully i will when the weather warms up and the days get longer.

minette - thank you!

kookie b - aww thank you, you made me feel a lot better about them =) and i think you go here to get the badge: chictopia.com/access/style_icon
