What's In My Bag




In life, there are amazing friends, and then there are friends who only want to be there when it benefits them.
Those are called fair weather friends. 
I'm fortunate enough to not have any fair weather friends, but not all of us can be that lucky, apparently. My boyfriend has recently come to terms with this fact, and he's devastated he allowed this to go on.
Moral of the story:
If someone is only friends with you when it benefits them, stay far away from them. Run far away.

Forever wishing it wasn't a trillion degrees below zero outside.

Forever wishing it wasn't a trillion degrees below zero outside.

To put it bluntly, it's terribly cold outside, and I couldn't take the frigid wind for any longer than this.
But, look at that action hair flip!

How to Style Printed Tops

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.



I am a lover of prints. Leopard, chevron, floral--they're all perfect. But, I'm the first to admit that they're hard to style and they can go wrong so fast.

Happy Sunday!
A good 90% of my wardrobe is thrifted. I don't like paying full price, and I refuse to. I call it the "thrift store effect", in which thrift stores have spoiled me with their low prices.
A few days ago, my friend asked me to help her shop for herself--because she hadn't done it in years--which I agreed to. As we shopped in the mall and at the thrift, she noticed that I had two totally different ways of shopping. Here are the tips I gave her

Winter Essentials Sweaters

Sweaters and jumpers are an absolute must have in winter. Nothing beats the snuggly warm sweater on a bone chillingly cold day.

Winter Essentials Coats

Coats are an obvious essential for winter, yet finding the perfect one is feat in itself. There are so many shapes and lengths that is a defeating task. But, once you find the one you love--the one that offers the perfect amount of warmth and stylishness--you must shift to styling.

Inspiration--1/3/2013











January Wishlist--Winter Accessories


January Wishlist--Jumpers galore


January Wishlist--Skater Everything


January Wishlist--Tights



This month's wishlist may be inspires by the fact that it's in the single digits outside and my little fingers are frozen, but I'm really in the mood/need for some more winter clothes.

 I really do need more jumpers/sweaters, some with actual warmth, and I also need more cardigans, for places that are too warm for coats, but not warm enough for no outerwear (work).  And, as always, I'm looking for some perfect dresses, skater skirts and pleated skirts.

 And, since my tight collection is dwindling, thanks to washing machines, I must stock back up. I'm thinking dark neutrals and deep reds. Those are good year round, right?

What are you lusting for this month?
