Bought this dress from asos in anticipation it would come with a slip. Well it didn’t so I layered a velvet mini underneath. I could’ve worn one of the black slips I already have, but these textures look way cooler. I like how theres a slit on the side of the dress that lets the emerald peak through.

Bare upper midriff: I ❤ it. Unfortunately, I have no idea where I could go to wear an outfit like this. I pretty much live in a hick town so this is as far as I can take playing dress up–my dining room. Girl's night in the movies consists of getting all dressed up but my girl's nights entail watching Ryan Gosling and Taylor Lautner movies in the comfort of my home in my Columbia sweatshirt and j.crew sweat pants. Sweat pants you say?! I own one pair, but lets keep that on the DL, I have a rep to maintain as TUFG.

 I’ve been wearing the heck out of this fur collar because not only does it provide ample warmth, it gives outfits just enough amount of edge with its cranberry-wine color.

Tried to channel my inner hippie but I’m so over the feathers and the dream catchers, theyre so played out.
Bought these JC Hologram’s during Solestruck’s Black Friday sale. They’re so versatile and I pretty much stared at them for a good two minutes when I first opened the box. (Black Friday Shoe Haul video)
Loop-de-Loop Carousel glitter gloss from Lime Crime: I love the color but Ill be honest, I absolutely hate lip gloss so Ill probably only be using these for blog posts.

Gold torque necklace from Topshop. Shipping took forever and a day and it came broken but yay for super glue!

My mom bought these pants from India. The workmanship is so intricate. 

Finals are next week.
Almost done with college applications.
So. Burnt. Out.

Transition to Winter

Transitioning pieces from warmer to colder weather is one way fashionistas stay stylish for less. Layering is key; accessorizing keeps the outfit on trend.

WARM: Higher neck tanks keep a slit skirt in good taste. To make this outfit not so secretary-ish, I added a leopard print belt and a torque necklace. Kitten heels are the perfect shoe for this skirt. Avoid wearing boots or oxfords since they will shorten the leg. Since there are already two accessories, I didn’t wear a bracelet or ring. I absolutely love kelly green for spring.

BREEZY: The only pieces necessary for the transition to this stage is a small blazer and a fur collar. This off white blazer adds freshness to the outfit.

CHILLY: Throw on a parka and some tights. I chose a pain black tight to bring attention to the shoe’s detailing. Also, the parka is super busy so the rest of the outfit needed to be tame.

 COLD: Threw on a maxi coat. My mom has one like this–from the 90s.

Side note: Do you like my new garment rack? Totally helped with the organization in my closet! 
Another side note: I’ve been posting videos on YouTube this week. A got a ton of comments asking for more outfit of the day videos so I’ll be doing those from time to time. Check ’em out here.

I Would Do Anything For You

Turtle necks: on trend and oh so cozy.
Love this sweater. I like the whole Missoni sweater ordeal but that’s definitely over played. This is my version of the mixed color printed sweaters. I like how its over sized and boxy, reminds me of something the Olsen twins would wear.
Paired it with an effortless, maroon skirt that plays off the red in the sweater. Hi-low hems are the love of my life.

Wish I had a Nelly neck cuff but I settled for this necklace!

October Haze

October haze. Burnt orange. Apple cider. Falling leaves. 

 I want to wear dark lipstick, creepers, and get ten more ear piercings this fall. The last one isn’t about to happen though.

I love eBay rings.
