Lots of Lovely Layers

Wearing: f21 parka; UO scarf; aldo boots; vintage purse.

Wow yesterday was in the fifties and today we got the lovely surprise of snow! I am a huge fan of the snow and all of it's beautiful glory. If it were up to me all I would do today is sit by a window and read a book. But of course with my busy schedule this never happens! A weird fact about me: when it is snowing I insist on wearing red. I just love the color of it against the bright white.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend, I am so glad I had some time to squeeze in this outfit picture in the snow. And, below are some of my favorite snow pictures.

Too sexy for your shoes?

Witness exhibit A: sky-high platform ankle boots by Pleaser...I freakin' LOVE these. And I know what you're thinking.."Slutty hooker boots!". Not exactly. Karla of Karla's Closet rocks these with skinny jeans, and opaque tights with girly dresses. I probably wouldn't have ever thought of buying these if I hadn't seen them on Karla; she pulls them off with aplomb!

Needless to say, these boots would be a teeny bit controversial to wear in fashion-conservative (read: boring) Halifax so I'm not entirely sure if I'll be ordering these anytime soon. BUT, I have been craving serious platforms lately and have been unsuccessful in finding the perfect pair... so we'll see!
In the meantime, check out some of Karla's outfits paired with the aforementioned boots.

Pretty in Pink

This is my most prized and treasured skirt! And also one of the only pink things I own. I just love the soft color of it, and the flower detailing. I think my style is getting a little more girly lately, which is funny because I never thought it would be again.

Anyways, Last night I went to a T.I. concert, and let me just say it was the best rap concert I've ever been to! Well actually it was the only one I've ever been to. I danced like no other last night in this dress.

Michelle loves Tom

No, its not that Tom (thank God). First Lady Michelle Obama is in the midst of a love affair with jewelry designer Tom Binns (myself included). At the Governor's Ball, Michelle accessorized her stunning Peter Soronen gown with Binns' Pearls in Peril. The result? Absolute perfection. Here she is (below) with her handsome, charming husband.

Kelley Smith Photography

This girl is my dear friend and one of the most talented photographers that I have come across. Her dream-like photos are certainly eye-catching, and I could just stare at the beautiful detail and coloring of her photos all day long. I absolutly love her newest photos( the last three pictured here) and the way she captures the detailing of the clothing pictured. I recommend you see more of her work here. :)

Flower Child

Although I am most definitely not ready for spring/summer's heat yet, I have been preparing. I made this headband with supplies from a craft store, and plan on wearing it on the most beautiful of days come spring.

I have been wearing a few lighter colors lately which is very strange for me. Typically the majority of my outfit is navy, gray or black, but I've been experimenting with the lights in my closet that I hardly wear. We'll see how this turns out.

wearing: Nordstrom's jean jacket & t-shirt; DIY hair accessory

True Blue

Wow, Yes it is true that I am wearing three pieces of blue. One of my favorite color combinations is the deepest of navy with the darkest of black. Anyways, I hope everyone who is an Academy Awards lover enjoyed the show. I am so ecstatic that Slum Dog Millionaire won best film of the year! Anyone who has not seen it yet, must make time to go see it.

Hope everyone has a wonderful start to your week!

Wearing: romper; fioni payless oxfords; f21 necklace, tights, flower hair accessories; jean jacket from Nordstrom's; vintage clutch.

Fashion flock (of seagulls)

Marc Jacobs' ode to the lost decade (aka the '80s) was one of my favorite lines of New York Fashion Week. For many, the intensely-hued line was a welcome diversion from the somber palettes that seemed to dominate other shows; a mood which, I suppose, is in keeping with the current economic situation, however MJ's clothes were a refreshing break. Here are some of my fave looks from the show (check out the sunglasses!!):
