so jealous of this girl's hair.
soft, tousled, natural, messy - perfection.
i'm thinking of cutting another two inches off of mine, just to make it more manageable.
yes, i recently cut off two inches and it's still crazy long!
& i'd love to get full-on bangs like this.
too bad i don't have the balls.

i am planning a trip to flordia in march!
while it's not my first choice of vacation destinations, my boyfriend and a big group of our friends are going and there's no way i'll pass it up.
this picture sums of everything i'd like to live in that week: bikinis, sunnies, ponytails, and breezy cover-ups. i'm more self-conscious about my middle, so if i have to choose one, i like shirts > shorts as beach wear.
the search for even more warm-weather inspiration (and clothing) is ON.

doesn't take much to make me happy - just give me a blazer, and i'm good to go.

forever 21 oversized waffle knit cardigan, chain bracelet, rhinestone bracelet, studded watch, and corded bracelet; H&M divided black chambray shirt; H&M faux leather skirt; leopard scarf from eBay; target opaque tights (2 pairs layered); marc by marc jacobs black pyramid stud bracelet; fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring and claw ring; nine west lace-up booties.
this reminds me, i've had a couple readers do features on me recently on their blogs and i can't for the life of me find them, so PLEASE leave me a comment in this post if you have featured me so i can give you the love you deserve!
i wore this outfit to the movies with my boyfriend last night. these lace-up booties are over a year old and still going strong.
until next time.
EDIT 1/20/10: i'm a perfectionist and a perpetual worrier, and i didn't like three of the pictures i originally put in this post (at all), so i decided to change it and add the one that is now first.

ecote cardi from urban outfitters.
got this cardigan from urban outfitters today, and i'm thinking it might be a good substitute for the opening ceremony sweater coat i posted in my christmas wishlist that i'm still lusting for (actually, i'm still looking for inexpensive versions of everything on that list).
i don't know, i'm questioning it still...what do you guys think? good substitute? no? anyone find something better?
- i'm cleaning out my closet and donating some of my outdated/unused clothing to help earthquake victims in haiti. if you would like to do the same, talk to nate erickson. he works for singer wyclef jean (who is from haiti) and is reaching out to bloggers and the fashion industry as a whole to get us to give up the clothing we don't need to those who do. or you can text "YELE" to 501501 to donate $10 to wyclef's haitian charity yéle. any little bit helps out those less fortunate.
- i'll be selling the flared leather skirt from this post and lots more stuff in my soon-to-be-open BLOG SHOP! i'll keep you guys updated, promise =)

my sincere apologizes again for the boring concrete/white wall background.
i also curled my hair to soften up the entire look, & went crazy with the eye makeup.

on a side note, the night before this, i wore a skirt (so unlike me!) and heels. my style is consistent, but it can go from on side of the spectrum to the other.
mixing tough with feminine is my favorite =)
i luff you guys.

obsessing over this gorgeous pecan color. there's a blouse at work that's a little lighter than this shade...it might have to do for now.
fuzzy sweaters in solids and stripes.
this h&m oversized top; it's sold out in my store! =(
you know i shy away from color, but i wouldn't turn down this little prada beauty. and theeeeeeeere's that pamela love ring again.
rings in general. where can i find a panther ring?
never enough black shoes.
what's on your current lust list?

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 =)
