a lot of fake leather.

my outfit today comprised of a lot of fake leather. didn't really think about it until i looked at the pictures. oh well! it's freaking cold here. ok, by seattle standards. i'm sure you all in michigan laugh when we say it's cold but holy moly, 27 degrees is not fun. i was having a hard time figuring out how to stay warm in dresses during the winter when the cute girl over at {delightfully tacky} posted how she keeps from getting frostbite in dresses up in the great white land of Alaska. ready for this?

multiple layers of tights!

holy moly why didn't i think of that? it's so simple! and let me tell you, it works brilliantly! two layers of tights and boots and its's just like you are wearing jeans. can you say "awesome!"? cause i can.


jacket {nordstrom} dress {thrifted} belt {nordstrom} tights {fred meyer sock sale?} boots {love culture}

this dress is super awesome, warm and japanese. that's right. the tag is in japanese. sure it made it a little difficult to know how to wash it the first time but who cares! and the boots i surprisingly got at love culture. it's one of those stores that you have to dig through the sleaze to find the cute. i feel as though i was successful. this time.

over and out.


an outfit of bargains.

i like cheap things. i just do. clothes (and everything!) are so much more fun when they are cheap. i didn't realize it until later in the day but everything i'm wearing has a good bargain story.

cardi{steve&barry's} striped shirt{oldnavy} skirt{pacsun} tights{nordstrom rack} boots{oldnavy} earrings{gift}

sweater: $2 at steve&barry's closing sale. i was just grabbing things if they seemed kinda cute and fell in love with a few sweaters i got. nothing over $5. hello!

shirt: $10 well, nothing super special. just oldnavy so it's cheap haha.

skirt: $5 at pacsun. on the clearance rack at the end of summer. it has a super sweet waistband too.

tights: $5 at nordstrom rack. i found these tights at anthro for $12, was going to buy them but didn't cause the line was too long and i had to get to my {bp fashion board meeting}. i was just going to go back after. got done with my meeting and the mother had found them at the rack. sweet!

boots: $3 at oldnavy. got these a few years ago before people were wearing slouchy boots. htey were cheap and cute so i bought them. wore them a few times, almost got rid of them and now i wear them all the time!

earrings: my friend maribel or m made these for me. just a button glued to an earring back!

outfit total: $25

giving thanks.

This year, Thanksgiving was pretty low key. We spent it with some friends and ate WAY to much. Here is what we had....

Cheese Ball
(not planned, just how it happened)

Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
Green Bean Casserole-second favorite!
Philipino Rolls
Multicultural Thanksgiving? I like to think so haha

We also went and saw the Blind Side. SOOO good! Watch the trailer {here}

Here is what I wore. I forgot to take a picture but this is from last month I think. I wore different (cuter) boots but you get the idea!
