I love clothes

Bonjour Gazel always has the cutest outfits. With peter pan collars, polka dots, and the perfect eyewear, it's hard to not be jealous of her style. While I can't peruse her closet and borrow her clothes, she's holding a giveaway! An ASOS giftcard for 50 bucks? Why yes, I would love to enter! The link to the give away is down below for anyone else that would like to try their luck at it. 

 Fingers crossed that I get it. :)

wish wish wish

holiday wishes

My family doesn't really celebrate the holidays that much. I may not be expecting any gifts this year, but that doesn't stop me from wanting a few (or a lot) of things. Some items are just part of my winter essentials (I don't know when I started to have "essentials") and others I wish were part of my life. Ryan Gosling is still on my wish list. He will ALWAYS be on my wish list.

1| After this long semester I am ready for some recreational reading. 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami and The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides are at the top of my list. I'm hoping that I'll read at least five books this winter break.
2| I really don't need anymore lipstick. Last time I counted I was at 9 different tubes of lipstick. What I really want to do is use more of what I already have. Oh, and I wouldn't mind trying out some purple lipstick.
3| I want cigarette pants. They fall into my love for 60s fashion, help me with my new found love in pants, and look good in sweaters.
4| I need to keep my lips smooth.
5| I already have a grey pullover, which I wear almost everyday. This is just a reminder of how great it is.
6| Asos really needs to stop making me fall in love with their clothes. I'm almost glad that they don't have a location States side, otherwise I'd be in debt. This dress with the peter pan collar, short length, and wonderful burnt red color is calling me. I'm resisting that call for now.
7| Berets and scarves are my best friends right now. My hair has been looking a mess and I thank my collection, okay I only have three, of berets for hiding that. Scarves keep me warm.
8| I am forever on the look out for simple black flats. I don't like embellishments on black flats. I just want them to be practical like this pair from Repetto. I also want them to be affordable unlike this pair from Repetto. I know I just said I don't want embellishments on black flats, but these cat flats are TOOGOOD. I guess I mean embellishments such as rhinestones, flowers, and bows. These shoes by Charlotte Olympia are awesome. I don't know what else to say.
9| I need an amplifier for my record player. I want to listen to my records and sing along. I need some Miriam Makeba in my vinyl life.
10| I want Ryan Gosling. I just do and I am not ashamed.

kind of a big deal

I'm wearing pants. Yeah, I know. PANTS. As of late I've been wearing shorts as a means of slowly getting back into the groove of wearing something other than dresses or skirts. Now I've made my way to wearing pants. I picked this pair up from Super Thrift in the valley. That place has been the source for a number of my favorite pieces. It may be in an incredibly boring part of the valley, but the selection there is amazing and I don't mind the short drive.

summer hat

This July I do not pledge allegiance to the flag. Instead I pledge to wearing hats more often. Well, this hat in particular. This Goodwill find spent it's first year in my possession sitting atop a shelf. Far from sight and definitely from mind, I went almost nine months without putting it into my outfit rotation. Too summery for the spring and too broad for anyone to see around my head should they unfortunately sit behind me in class. 

This hat was meant for summer. It was meant to keep the sun out of my eyes and help me from sweating myself to death. I put this hat to it's task and went to the park to read. While it helped to shield the sun away from my eyes it certainly didn't do much to protect the rest of my body from the sun. At an unbearable 90 degrees I decided to stop reading outside and headed home. I'll try and wear this hat more often though because I like it too much to let it spend another dreadful nine months on a shelf.
