Light snow is the worst. Just snow a lot or don't snow at all,  don't tease me!

Surviving Black Friday: The Employees

Monday, November 25, 2013



As someone who has both shopped and worked on Black Friday, I will be the first to admit that Black Friday is a horror show. The lines, all of the people, and all of the sales are overwhelming, if not horrifying, to some people. With the experience that I have shopping and working on this day, I thought I would make a survival guide for you Black Friday newbies. And, just in time, too.

Truly Gifted

It's somehow sad that Thanksgiving always gets the shaft for the holidays. Not as much fun as Halloween, not as much religious/global/ gifting/commercial opportunity as Christmas/Hanukkah/etc... But alas, we're all caught up in the holidays in the blogosphere. Between the gifts, the celebrations, the reflection of the year that's about to end, there's so much ground to cover! This week, we have a delightful round of holiday inspired posts to get you thinking about the rest of the year. Believe it or not... we don't have that much time left.

Hi there!

How I Style: Eyelet Dress (For Fall and Winter)

Monday, November 18, 2013

H2S Eyelet Dresses

Styling can be difficult, especially when it comes to trendy pieces. How to style, also known as how I style, is a chance for me to pick a trend and style it using Polyvore to help you.




Eyelet dresses are a staple in summer; they're light and airy, and they're usually white and innocent. 
But, once the warm weather goes away, you hang it up in the closet and ignore it for months, only to bring it back out once the snow clears. 
But, you can wear them year round with a bit of work, and I'm here to show you how.

Hello!

It finally did it, it finally snowed here. Which, to me, means that fall is slowly slipping away from us just as soon as it started. Quite literally, it is below freezing out and there is still remnants of orange leaves.


Monthly Obsession: Tartan Scarves

Wednesday, November 13, 2013


1. Primark (link unavailable) 2. Amazon--here 3. Asos--here 4. Forever 21--here 5. Asos--here 6. Nordstrom--here

Tartan is one of my all time favorite prints for the autumn/winter time; it's timeless, warm, and it screams Christmas. Scarves are a great way to dive into the tartan trend without going overboard, like down below.

Since tartan is such a prominent print, you don't want to make the mistake of going overboard. It can stand on it's own, and it's perfectly capable of changing the entire feel of an outfit instantaneously.

To learn more on how to style tartan, check out my previous post here!


Have a safe and wonderful night!

C'est Chic

I'm writing this from a hotel room in New York today. Coming to New York always makes me think about style... since NYC is probably one of the most stylish places in the world. What makes an outfit "work?" Is it the actual pieces, or your je ne sais quoi? Not knowing, or trying to quantify is what keeps the fashion media in business. Which is why I always love browsing through the links. This week we have all kinds of tricks and tips on how to style your wardrobe, how to put it all together, so whether or no you have that je ne sai quoi you'll at least look damn good.

When ever I wear this skirt, I feel like a Grecian matriarch, regardless of the fact that this skirt is not Greek and neither am I.

How I Style: Leather Jackets



Styling can be difficult, especially when it comes to trendy pieces. How to style, also known as how I style, is a chance for me to pick a trend and style it using Polyvore to help you.


Leather jacket season is upon us! Which I love, because leather jackets are an essential piece in my wardrobe. But, leather jackets can be hard to style, given their weight and their shape, plus there are so many different types of jackets that it could be a little overbearing! So, I'm here to help you guys out!

Disclaimer: All of the leather jacket's in these stylings are faux leather, not the real deal. 

I'm going to tackle the two biggest leather jackets on the market: the moto jacket and the bomber jacket.
They look similar, and in the classic black, it's hard to see the defining details.There is two major differences between the jackets:

1. Moto jackets collars stand up on their own, bomber jackets have a full zippable collar.
2. Moto jackets are leather all around, bomber jackets have an elasticized waist to keep it tight. 



With that being said, here are the stylings!

I was quite literally dragged to the midnight release of Call of Duty: Ghosts tonight--I'm actually editing this in Gamestop whilst sitting under a 3DS display. 
I'm a gamer, and I'm not opposed to the midnight releases. It' just that this was so sudden. That, and I'm sad that I lack the funds to buy Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.
 Woe. Is. Me.
