Fringe

I wore this to school last week. I really like the fringe skirt with the boots but I'm not sure about the black tights with brown boots.
I made my first Etsy sale last week. It was really exciting. I think now that I've passed the first sale mark people will be more willing to purchase from me. I'm going to use my Thanksgiving break to update my shop with new pictures and maybe new items and work on descriptions.

This week my friends and I did a potluck. I made cornbread and andouille sausage stuffing. I used Emeril's recipe. It was soo good. I did cheat and use the pre-crumbled cornbread stuffing mix but it was fantastic. I'm really happy I have some leftovers.

Crochet

I wore this to get some TGI Friday's with a friend. They had 3 kinds of ribs for $10 and I love ribs so I had to test it out. The Memphis rub ones were really good. My favorite ribs are still from  Mission BBQ ribs because their's are rubbed in Old Bay and served with an Old Bay barbecue sauce.
This dress is one of my best thrifting scores. It's DVF and I got it for $15 and it still had tags on it. I love the way the tights peek out from the hem.

Black and White

I've been gravitating to black and white lately. Maybe it's because its so easy to pair and you can just put on more accesories for color.
These are from last week today it was way too cold to go out without a jacket and todays outfit plan didn't work. My cute blue pants don't fit anymore so I just went for jeans and a sweater.
My mom and I went to Old Navy and got the same shirts. We actually wound up wearing them on the same day. Great minds must think alike.

Black Friday Picks

I always go Black Friday shopping with my mom but I tend to be more of an impulse buyer than thinking about things like I normally do this year i'm going through the stores I'll most likely go to and make a list. i'm not buying everything on my list sometimes things look weird on, the color isn't good and things like that. i think having a list will help stop the super impulse purchases.Part 1 is here. I'm not sure what the Black Friday prices on these will be.
This set is from Ann Taylor. I think my goal with black Friday is getting basics that are sort of exciting. I love these black velvet pants. I like the texture and they can be dressed up or down. The lace shell is really nice. It would show off my shoulders that I've been working out. This skirt is boiled wool so it'll be really warm for the winter months.
All of this is from Express. I saw this skirt earlier and loved it. I wanted to make a version myself but if this feels nice and winds up at a good price this is definitely on my list. This crop top is really cool. It has an exposed zip and a t-back. I'm not sure if it's my style but it is worth trying on. I like this top with metallic threads. I tend to be more of a sequin person but my hair always gets caught in it. Metallic threads will keep me sparkly and my hair intact.

Mix

I wore this to school last week.
I like this leather jacket. I've had it for a while but I always forget that its kind of annoying to write in because of the detailing along the wrist.

Black Friday Picks

I always go Black Friday shopping with my mom but I tend to be more of an impulse buyer than thinking about things like I normally do. This year i'm going through the stores I'll most likely go to and make a list. I'm not buying everything on my list but I think having one  will help stop the super impulse purchases.I'm going to share my list over the next few weekends.
This group is from JcPenney. I like the emerald dress. The ruffle make it look really flattering and its a knit so it should work through the weight fluctuations I've been dealing with. There is also a short sleeve version. I know I have a leather jacket but I don't think it's the right one. It has things around the wrist the make it annoying to write in. This JCP jacket is simple but it has some cool stitching to keep things interesting. I like the sleeve length on this sweater and it comes in a ton of colors.
This set is from LOFT. This jumpsuit is pretty. I like the lace but I think the pleats on the pants could make my lower half look wider. I love the 2 tone on the sweatshirt the print keeps it  a little fancy. I think Loft makes nice blouses. The feather print on this one is adorable.

Feather Tank

I wore this to get some Thai food. I wanted something a bit nicer than normal jeans and a tank so I put on a feather tank and a fancy jacket.
I feel like I've been pretty busy lately. A giant law essay, and tons of statistics and accounting. Thankfully there are only a few more classes left in the semester.

As if

For Halloween I went down to visit my friend. We went as Dionne and Cher from Clueless. We had this planned for a while but I didn't start sewing my outfit until last Saturday.
I sewed McCall's 7022 for the skirt and McCall's 6172 for the jacket. I left the jacket unlined because I was rushing.
I was really excited that people got our outfit! I have a lot of leftover fabric I think I might make a plaid skirt that's more my style.
