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.

Tags: , , 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…
