12.14.09 - Outfit double take

So we're not all lucky enough to live in Australia during December & therefore not able to strut around outside with bare arms and legs?  No problem at all!  Add a little warmth to this look by wearing a vintage high waisted wool skirt. Paired with a neutral ruffled chiffon blouse, your favorite (wool) tights, and a perfect pair of heels or boots.  I think this look is quite acheivable even in the middle of winter.  I don't care if you're "not supposed" to wear light, white, sheer fabrics or even lace in the middle of winter. In the right proportions, I think they can work quite well.  (Even if they're only seen indoors, or worn in milder California weather!)

Here are a couple 70s wool skirts, that I believe balance the chiffon blouse quite well.  Very similar to that lovely outfit on the Sartorialist, I would wear any of the three!  At any rate both skirts will be up in the boutique within the next couple days.  As for the chiffon blouse, I believe it is from Forever 21.  And the brown boots are made by Jessica Simpson in the "Yana" style. They're my absolute favs!

Hope you're all making the best of this holiday season!

12.12.09 - love, Love, LOVE this outfit!


So elegant & feminine, yet simple & chic!  This look is by far one of my recent favorites from the Sartorialist.  I absolutely love the top with its sheer black chiffon like texture, adorable ruffles, & slightly puffed sleeves.  I have many blouses similar to this one, but not one in black. (Just added to my must have list.)  And that skirt... the perfect height & fit!  I'm not usually a fan of the high waisted pencil skirt, but she definatly pulls this one off nicely & in the loveliest shade of gray.  Now if I could only find this exact skirt or one similar, I could die happy! Hehe.. hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!

12.11.2009 - Doubt...

Do you ever wonder if the road you're heading down is the right one?  Lately this thought seems to keep crossing my mind.  As I look back over the past 5 years, I've noticed that a fear of failure has paralyzed me in a lot of ways from pursuing many of my passions.  It's this doubt that always tells me I'm not good enough to succeed.  It's this doubt that has kept me from finishing school.  

Sometimes I'm lazy & want everything to come easy. But at the same time I know that nothing that I want will come from thinking or acting like this. I'm definatly one of my toughest critiques... but I'm learning how to use this for my benefit.

Just like the women in this photograph, I have no idea what the future holds, in fact it's quite blurry and obscure, but I do know what fuels my passion and what doesn't.  So for once in my life I'm putting one foot in front of the other and leaving everything else behind.  It's time to be selfish for once.  It's time to face my fears.  Because I've learned the hard way that it's better to take a chance on what you love, than to look back and wonder what if.....
