Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I hope you all have a lot to be thankful for today.
Don’t let family or food stress you out, just embrace and enjoy it.



If this guy can share, so can you.

Topshop goodies..   I can’t seem to get over black, exposed zipper, bright satins, short skirts, high waists and acid wash.  Not to mention shoes.  I will forever love the ultra feminine/masculine looks, I think.

ps. I REALLY want some satin shorts like above.. ever since I saw a pair in a Shape magazine this Summer.

What I Wore [denim shorts] November 22, 2008

nice bags eh?

Goodwill cardigan, Ebay shorts, Target shoes, Suzy Shier top, Ebay tights, necklaces gift + Wet Seal

This outfit took some getting used to. Well, the shorts did anyway. It grew on me though and I really like it!  It’s always weird to see your body in a different way and for me, high waisted shorts were something different.

Stylebytes.net is back up, as in, you can dig through the archives. I’d love for Agathe to start posting there again! Her blog was really the first one I found that introduced me to this little heaven of street style and fashion blogging.  It definitely inspired me to start my own!  She was always a great combination of class and rock. Her look always said strength to me (here, in a society where women are supposed to be strong without showing it too much *eye roll*).

This outfit was inspired by her blog.  Her slouchy tops, high waisted black skirts, black tights, bunched up socks, red lips and scarves.

And I think I’m finally used to walking in 2 1/2″ heels. OKay, so that’s not very tall but I am tall so hmm… maybe that doesn’t make a difference but whatever. Sucess for me!  Now of course I’m diving head first into sites like Nine West and Fornarina, drooling hopelessly…
