suitcase living.

cold minded.






(pic 1,2,3, and 6 via fashiongonerogue; 4 via tumblr; 5, unknown)

i already miss all of the sweaters and coats that i have to leave behind as i pack for my month long business trip to texas next sunday. just as indy starts to get cooler again, i head to a city where it looks like 60 is the average high this time of year. all of my heavier pieces won't fit in my suitcase anyway. this is probably why i'm drawn to all of the fur and outerwear in these pics.

chunky knits.

topshop sweater; h&m long sleeve tee (under sweater); h&m divided black scarf; bdg high rise skinny jeans; asos bag; fashionology.nl cross ring, claw ring, and hammered knuckle ring; lowluv x erin wasson scarab ring; forever 21 watch and wedge ankle boots.


i think this may be the first time i've worn a substantial amount of color on the blog...!
as you guys know, i'm a neutral girl at heart (this does happen to be the only piece in my closet this bright), but i couldn't pass up the cocoon sleeves, big stripes, and winning combination of red and camel on this sweater.

say you'll haunt me.

h&m faux leather pants, topshop tee, asos skull bracelet, zara velvet bag, topshop faux fur coat, zara heels, topshop lipstick, monki lace bra.
images via lookcloserblog and fashiongonerogue.

i was going to do an outfit post, but i'll have to save that for tomorrow when i have more time.
for now, if i had somewhere special to go, this is what i would want to wear.
very dark and moody, but still simple and classic, is what i'm feeling.
maybe i'll put something like this together soon.

i'm so tired (which is weird because i'm such a night owl), but wanted to quickly post a little sunday inspiration, for you, and for me, to feast our eyes on.
these capture my mood right now perfectly.

fur dreams.


asos long hair faux fur coat

cannot get this coat off of my mind.
it might have to be mine soon.

i did buy a wool hat like the one the model has on here, but it looks ridiculous on me. sadface.

casual elegance.

topshop coat; h&m lace dress and faux fur scarf; asos double wrap belt; new york & company quilted bag; fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring, cross ring, and claw ring; lowluv x erin wasson scarab ring; forever 21 watch and wedge ankle boots.

obsessed with the idea of casual elegance right now; mixing something kinda glam and dressy (like this lace dress) with something casual (like a giant boyfriend style coat) to make it more "me". i especially love doing this at night when casual is sort of unexpected, because dressing up is not what i do on daily basis (you're lucky to get me in a jeans and tee at work at 9am or even 3pm).

wore this out last tonight to see one of my favorite comedians daniel tosh perform stand up. you guys have seen tosh.o on comedy central right? hilarious!
and his live show was so so good :)

and the winner is....

studdedhearts

after going through the qualified entries, and adding in those that also tweeted about my 80s purple $100 gift card giveaway, the randomly chosen winner is kirstie from san jose!
congratulations girl, 80s purple will be contacting you very soon with your gift card code.
and thank you to everyone who entered! 225+ entries - my most successful giveaway to date :)

on a side note, of course this ruby aldridge for dossier journal editorial has nothing to do with the giveaway winner, but it is something that i just had to post, even though it's already all over the blogosphere. it's one of the best things i've seen in a while, and i'm trying to find a way to actually get my hands on the magazine; that's how much i love it.

lots more of my cold-weather outfits coming at you guys soon.

glam rock.

bb dakota tweed boyfriend blazer; guns n roses t-shirt; h&m faux leather pants and faux fur scarf; forever 21 watch and wedge ankle boots; lowluv x erin wasson scarab ring; fashionology.nl claw ring, cross ring, and hammered knuckle ring.

the unbeatable pairing of a rock tee and leather pants is something i wear weekly, and i love how this faux fur scarf adds a touch of glam to anything i drape it over.

have a great weekend!
