As a matter of pure practicality, I've been favoring my flat shoes more than the sky high platforms lately. Don't get me wrong, I still love a good 5 inch skanky heel! But for everyday life, I've been going for things that are more casual & comfortable. This sweater in particular was given to me as a present on my birthday and I have become super attached to its incredible coziness.
What's everyone's plans for New Years? I've got a pair of black & silver striped sequin shorts and I think NYE is the only day of the year I can wear them out while keeping my dignity intact.

Hopefully all of you had a wonderful holiday! Recently, I have no idea whats gotten over me but all I can think of buying are trousers & various kinds of mom pants. I'm pretty tiny, and it is incredibly difficult to find pants that fit vintage or not. These were a hard find, but somehow they fit at the waist, and I adore the color!

Big thanks to the lovelies at Cotton Pancakes for sending me a generous box full of goodies. This embroidered velvet pair are my current favorite pair of shoes, so easy yet so cute!

Now I know christmas is over, but I simply can't get over this video. So good.

Jeremy Scott Bodysuit &  Alexander Wang Pumps via Forward Forward, Disco pants, American Apparel;  camel blazer, Vintage;

Bodysuits are a big staple my wardrobe, but this Jeremy Scott one that I got from Forward Forward puts all the rest of my bodysuits to shame. Absolutely Magical, I adore the puffy sleeves and the print adds so much youth and fun to many boring outfits. I've also been searching for the ultimate basic black pump, that has just the right amount of attitude ( and height! ) found these puppies at Forward Forward as well. Definitely one of the happiest boxes UPS has ever delivered me.

I usually love the rain, something is so refreshing and renewing about it. This past week though has been a week of horrors. Started out with a fender bender, lost camera charger, and general bad mood and feelings. So glad all that is over now, and its a new week!
