Dress and Jacket: Forever 21, Shoes: Louboutin
Our Christmas Eve day consisted of going to this old, old house that was over 150 years old to take some updated family portraits. And it was beyond awesome.
The house had about 20 different rooms..each room was so insanely different and was decked with some crazy ass wallpaper that was worn in and magical. There were definitely some stories that have gone on in that house...that's forsure. In one of the rooms, we found children's lamps dangling from the ceiling. It was cool....and creepy.
We had a perfect christmas eve and I hope the holiday was just as perfect for each of you!
Skirt: Jacob, Top: Zara, Jacket: Danier
I love pieces that sit in my closet for years, untouched ....yet I know that I will 100% wear them again. This skirt is one of those pieces. I wore it years ago but even after I had my time with it, I could never part with it. I let it sit in my closet since and now, i's back to being loved again.
I am currently getting ready for a big trip to Asia ( Hong kong and Bali!!) and I can't wait to bust out this skirt while I am there. It's so perfect for extremely hot weather- so lose and breezy. And man it's hot over there ( 38 degrees F). CANNOT WAIT!
I know in the land of hardcore nailpolish fanatics this colour is old news and not relatively exciting but in my world ( the semi nailpolish fanatic's world) this is exciting. I got the Deborah Lippman "What Happens in Vegas" shade as a belated birthday gift aka the nail polish that Lady Gaga sported on the cover of Vanity Fair. Yay!
Not sure how a colour this calm and cool can include the word 'Vegas' but if Vegas looked like this, I'd probably go back more often.
Dress: Macy's. Shoes: Forever 21, Purse: BCBG, Foxtail: Gifted
I am not a great person to shop with...unless you have the same shopping style as me.
This includes: In and out of each store. Knowing what your looking for and if it's not there...hasta la vista. Changeroom missions are quick. Can circle a store once to know if you like anything.
This shopping style does not include Macy's ( for those of you not familiar with Macy's, its a massive department store in the US) which I refer to as "THE BLACK HOLE"
There is just so much going on, so many racks crammed into one small area, it's always so packed , i always feel like i am dying of heat exhaustion in there and everyone I have gone in there with tends to spend at least 2 hours in there. Basically, I've just never had a great experience in there.
However, I was asked ( forced) to accompany my mom into one of the Macy's while we were shopping in Buffalo last week and I found this cream dress while waiting for her .....and ate up my words that I would never buy anything from Macy's.
I am in love with this dress. And would probably say it was my favourite purchase from my day of shopping. Macy's-you have slightly redeemed yourself. Slightly.
Boots: Cougar Boots
I suffer from S.A.D -seasonal affective disorder ( ok I haven't' actually been diagnosed but I am one step away from placing a bucket of sand in my room and a heat lamp to make me feel like summer is near). Due to this, I tend to be a TAD dramatic when I have to go outside in below 0 temperatures. Gloves, scarfs, and now my new Cougar boots help make the walk from my house to my car a little easier (relax-i also walk from my car into work for all those city people cursing me right now).
Anyways, I am especially glad I got these booties to keep me warm as my feet are always the coldest! They are super warm, cozy...and not to mention, safe-Heels, ice and snow are not a great mix.
If you live in a place where winter is around for more than 2 months, I'd highly suggest.
Thanks Cougar for sending them over!

Some people wear tiaras for their birthdays but my friends and I, who had a joint birthday party for all of the babies born in november, decided it would be best to wear chanel inspired animal ears. And naturally, I got right into character. Perhaps a litttle too much ( these pictures were from the beginning of the night and by 2am, I was still doing the exact same poses...or at least I found out in the morning that I was. I wont even mention the bunny noises that were also being made. haha it as my birthday? I was allowed? ...Yeah ill stick with that)
I've been wanting to buy a pair of leather shorts for a while and since it was my birthday, I figured these ones were the perfect "happy birthday to myself" present.
I was quite happy with them..but not as happy as celebrating my birthday with some very fabulous and cool people xx
