Can I tell you a little secret? I did actually make one New Year’s resolution! And no it isn’t to go to the gym more often, stop drinking so much grape soda or to finally set up that Etsy store (yes…all of those are still on my to-do list). My one resolution is to start doing more outfit posts! So as luck would have it my dear grandmother got me a Belkin LiveAction for Kwanzaa, and I took it as a sign! So here after my first photo shoot of myself, with myself, by myself and for myself, is my first outfit post of 2013 🙂
This coat is one of my favorites, I got it during my first venture into Pay/Half last year and fell in love! The sleeves are very wide so if you’re like me and always walk with your hands in your pockets it looks like a true cape but it isnt! (Kinda makes me feel like a girly Darth Vader!) Those sleeves are a gift and a curse though, usually it’s not warm enough to wear in dead of winter (wind just flows right up the sleeves!) but I’ve been taking advantage of the mild weather we’ve been having in NYC lately.
This skirt is easily becoming one of my favorite skirts! (and by my, I mean MamaJedi’s lol) …and yes we still have our Christmas decorations up!
I got this pin at my friend Channing’s Blogaversary party, from Endless Noise. I threw it on the coat in fear of losing it on my way home and I think at this point it’s become fused to the coat! Seriously I took it off for 5 min to let a friend try it on and I felt like I just had my phone taken away, needless to say it’s now staying on there forever!
Can someone remind me to break in shoes around the house before I wear them outside again? I may have mentioned before, I have a slight problem walking in stilettos which is why I normally opt for heels of the wedge variety. BUT the lovely folks over at Chromatic Gallerie, were at the IFB conference last year and I was lucky enough to win a pair! For a while I couldn’t decide which color to get and then I remembered this tweet from Tristan Wilds, and let’s be real…who can argue with a smile like his!?!?
