I bought this coat with my December NYC trip on the brain, and I didn't get a chance to wear it while I was there. Clearly I was going to return it because who needs a parka in California? Well last week it got pretty chilly out here. No, not NYC chilly but we don't know what to do with ourselves here when the weatherman speaks of low 50's as the high. Thank goodness for unreturned parkas, Mexican hot chocolates, and warm fireplaces :)

wearing: parka from macy's, h&m scarf, j crew cardigan, HUNTER BOA boots, michael kors bag
worn to: coffee/hot chocolate date at ZOCALO

last of the sequins

I'm finally getting around to posting my
NYE look and I promise (with my fingers crossed) that you won't see anymore sequins from me for a long time. I had my eye on these leggings for quite sometime. In fact, I posted them in the WISHFUL WEDNESDAYS album on my FACEBOOK page back in October. I was finally able to get them at a super duper discounted rate in November and even though the sales associated told me "you are the only person I've seen even bold enough to try these on" I made the purchase. I had planned on glamming them up a bit, but my NYE plans were a little more low key and thrown together then I had anticipated, and I actually threw this look together because I had 15 mins to get dressed and none of these pieces need to be ironed :) 

wearing: express blazer, top & leggings, kenneth cole chain, f21 clutch, matiko wedges

Whoever said it's what's on the inside that counts, clearly doesn't understand the importance of a good coat :)

nye pregame

On the eve of NYE I went to an invite only party hosted by Hennessy. Not sure how or why I got invited because I don't drink Hennessy (unless it's the sponsor of an event & free, of course), but I'm glad that I did because it was fun, fun, FUN!! It was so fun, I almost opted to stay in the next night for NYE, but I didn't ;) It was the ultimate pregame to NYE night.

P.S. I might be wearing these pants out again tonight. It's soooo freezing by California standards...a frigid 47 degrees and dropping. Don't know if I can do a skirt or dress...

wearing: nordstrom necklace, J CREW TOPZARA PANTS, christian louboutin booties, f21 bracelet
worn to: ERA ART BAR & LOUNGE to the hennessy remixed party

ebew: black + white

I should be posting my NYE outfit, but I figured I'd take a break from posting sequins and take part in the EVERYBODY, EVERYWHERE black and white challenge. Am I cheating by wearing so much purple? It's a rare occasion that I wear black and white with no color, although I do think just black and white is so simply chic ;)

Speaking of NYE, did anyone see that movie? It was not on my list of movies to see, but I decided not to pass up an opportunity to get out of the house, and I actually thought it was pretty good. I give it a solid 6.75 out of 10

wearing: scarf unknown, banana republic sweater, AMERICAN APPAREL SKIRTf21 bracelt & necklace, michael kors watch, steve madden boots 
worn to: drinks at LIFT LOUNGE & the movies

sequins, again

Yes, I'm wearing sequins again :) It's partially because sequins is the theme of the latest BLOGGERS DO IT BETTER challenge, but mostly just because I can't get enough of it.
I only bought this skirt because it was $7.99, and I'm a sucker for a good deal. I thought it would serve as a nice closet accessory, but wasn't really sure I would ever wear it. That was until the perfect opportunity presented itself...a winter white ball. Yes, you are reading that correctly. I was invited to a winter white ball and I thought that would be the perfect time to whip out a silver sequin mini skirt. As I've stated before, I don't really like to follow rules ;) 

wearing: h&m button down, gap skirt, f21 bag and necklace, thrifted belt, dolce vita heels, kenneth cole men's watch, revlon polish in silver dollar
worn to: winter white ball at SUPPERCLUB
