the surprise shirt.

secondhand blouse via shop the haute pursuit; h&m faux leather skirt; asos bag; forever 21 necklace and watch; fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring, cross ring, and claw ring; lowluv x erin wasson scarab ring via tobi.com; topshop suede wedges.

sorry for the quality of the pics. my necklace really isn't tarnished; it just photographs poorly.
i wore this to a dive bar with a ton of my friends last weekend.

this perfect little faux leather skirt is something i picked up at h&m last winter, and the lovely vanessa from the haute pursuit sent me this amazing secondhand blouse completely by surprise. i left a comment on one of her blog posts about how much i loved her khaki button down, and then a few weeks later i get a random package - she sent me one! so sweet and unexpected; it made receiving a shirt i'd been lusting over that much better - thanks V :)

sunday randoms.

stockholm street style
frida's beauty is mind blowing. so is her personal style.

h&m magazine autumn 2010

this h&m aviator jacket exists only in my dreams, since my store won't carry it, and the nearest store that will is in chicago. if you own it, i'm living vicariously through you.

emsedge, carolinesmode

along with camel colors and leopard print, red is IT for fall.

celine and maxmara bags. i just bought a structured purse/clutch; can't wait to show you guys.

h&m dress; new york and company quilted bag; chrishabana for urban outfitters ear cuff and chain bracelet courtesy of chris habana; fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring, cross ring, and claw ring; lowluv x erin wasson scarab ring via tobi.com; forever 21 denim jacket, watch, and wedge ankle boots.

finally wearing this crazy awesome dress!

chris habana, one of my favorite jewelry designers (you've seen me wear his triple spike necklace a lot here on the blog), has created a collection for urban outfitters. the designer himself kindly lent me four pieces to photograph for you guys, and i'm wearing two of them here. i love the goth/fantasy feel the jewelry has; it gives my outfit the bit of edge that i crave. i also like mixing the dainty earring with the chunky bracelet - contrast is so good. best new of all, the pieces are under $100.
check them out on UO's website here.
thanks chris!

p.s. i entered this look in a contest on chictopia to win a trip to new york fashion week in september - vote for my look HERE and help me win!

dear topshop, dear asos...you seem to know exactly what i want for fall.
classic style and trendy shapes.
camel colors, denim, structured bags, leopard print, suede boots, and maybe even some gold jewelry (instead of my signature silver) for good measure :)

outfit post and giveaway coming within the next few days!

isabel marant a/w 2010

(source - style.com)

i can't help but covet a collection where i not only love most of the individual pieces (and can see them seamlessly fitting into my wardrobe), i also adore how the designer styled all of the looks for the runway. for me, isabel marant was one of those collections this season. wearable, easy, sexy, feminine with a little edge; so perfect!

i did not include any pictures of isabel's red leather pants, but i consider them a must-have for fall, and hope to find an affordable version asap.

lucky seven.

the classics.

h&m stripe sweater (old) and boyfriend style denim shorts; asos bag; fashionology.nl bird skull necklace, beaded bracelets, hammered knuckle ring, claw ring, and cross ring; forever 21 watch; lowluv x erin wasson scarab ring via tobi.com; steve madden ankle boots.

there was no way i wasn't going to recreate this look i saw on stockholm street style.
it fit me to a t, and i had everything needed already in my closet.
the only question is, why didn't i think of it first?!

craving dots.


i'm on the hunt for the perfect dotted blouse to add to my ever growing collection of pretty button downs. how friggin' perfect is this outfit? i want it all, now!


the one in the first picture or this elizabeth & james dotted blouse would be ideal, but i'm looking really for something >$50. fingers crossed!

p.s. i updated my blog shop (added some hudson jeans, a plaid blouse, a faux leather jacket, and two cool tank tops), so be sure to check out everything i have for sale here!
