I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I visited some family and my best friend. Then my family had Christmas dinner with a friend's family.

I got this jacket and shoes for Christmas. They are so pretty.
Here's a close-up of the shoes I can't really walk in them too long so they are a sitting shoe.

Nancy Drew

An outfit for the last school day before Thanksgiving.
Top-Loft, Skirt and tights- Target, Shoes- DSW
My friend said my tights make me look like Nancy Drew.
I wanted to try out this embellished sweatshirt trend but I feel like I;m really bumming it in a sweatshirt. My mom got this for me at the Loft. I think its a good blend of sweater and sweatshirt.
I have my food for Thanksgiving figured out. I'm making a hot buttered rum apple pie with a dutch top and homemade vanilla bean ice cream ( if I can find reasonably price beans).

Plaid

Before school I was doing a light version of the make-up I plan on wearing when I see the Hunger Games so I threw this on really quick.
Shirt-Thrift,Pants- Loft,Necklace- Forever 21,Bracelet-Vintage,Shoes- Sam Edelman
I really like long sleeve button-ups but I never really know what to pair them with.
The thing I like about this shirt is the ruffle that disguises the button placket.

Score

I wore this to go to school and help my friend shop for an outfit for out Great Gatsby party. I got home too late to take pictures outside so I took some myspace style mirror pictures.
Jacket- Oscar de la Renta (thrift), Tights- Target, Top- Forever 21, Bracelet- vintage, Shoes- Sam Edelman, Skirt- New York and Company
While shopping I let the shop owner put some make-up on me. I wound up getting this lipstick. I can't resist a good red. And my friend did find her dress.
This jacket is awesome. It's Oscar de la Renta. I found the whole suit at the thrift store for $10! It has real leather accents and it's wool so it's super warm.

Dog

I wore my doggy sweater today. I think my cell phone is taking better pictures than my real camera.
Most of my outfit is from J. Crew which I would normally find kind of lame but that shade of blue in my pants perfectly matches the dog's collar.
Sweater and Pants- J. Crew, Shoes- Sam Edelman, Trench- Thrift

Dress-Forever 21, Jacket- New York and Company, Scarf- vintage
I'm trying out a different lip color. Normally I go super red or a shade of pink this is darker than what I normally do but I think I like it.

To the max

  I wore a maxi dress to school. It was chilly in the morning and I threw a mustard sweater on. I think this dress can go into fall.

 I got eyelash extensions.

Simple

I wore this out to get some Mexican food.
Dress- Dvf, shoes- Irregular Choice,Bracelet- Gift, Necklace- Loft
I don't have a lot of Diane Von Furstenburg in my closet but I love to wear her stuff. It's feminine but powerful. I love this color and I think her clothes fit me so well.
The dress has an exposed zipper that goes all the way down.
I love the color so much.

Stripes

I wore this to school and trivia.
Dress- Forever 21, Necklace- Marc by Marc Jacobs, Shoes- Sam Edelman, Glasses- Mom's
This dress works so well as a transitional piece. It's one of the few dresses I can wear at Forever 21. I can't wear their dresses with tight skirts because my top half and bottom half are different sizes there. Same thing happens at Banana Republic.

First

I wore this for my the first day of school. This is the year I get organized. I even have highlighters. Half of my sewing room is clean and organized.
I got this dress for $6 bucks at the She Sale. It's a local ladies consignment event. My friend wanted to go. I assumed it would be on a boat because I was a great opportunity for a sale/sail pun but it was in a giant space which was probably better.
Dress- She Sale, Shoes- Sam Edelman, Sweater- New York and Company, Bracelet- Ann Taylor
The top half has a really interesting neckline.

Tropical

I wore this to go to lunch and have dinner.
The really cool thing about this vintage dress is it's actually a swimsuit.

Bombshell

I made a bathing suit! I used the Bombshell pattern from Closet Case Files.
I didn't read the real instructions I just used the sew-a-long.It was so well written.
I did run into a problem. When I sew in the top elastic the whole thing started ruffling. I couldn't figure out what was wrong so I turned that into a pleat.
I think I might like this better than my normal bikini ( and I love those). This swimsuit feels much more glamorous!


I think it looks good. This is only my second knit garment!
I think the back looks fantastic. I want another one in emerald next summer and my mom wants one two. Hopefully I can figure out what I did so I can have a perfect swimsuit.
