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.
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. XX
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. XX
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!
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.
wine stained lips in place of my usual black eyeliner; double wrap belts that cinch everything from utilitarian jackets to maxi dresses and oversize sweaters - just a few things i'm loving right now :) XX
