mirror mirror


This is another example of how sisters come in handy! Something was feeling a bit off when I threw the furry beast jacket over this colorful getup. The dress length? The jacket length? The linebacker shoulders? But before I sent the jacket back into its cage (a.k.a., my closet), I stood in front of the most honest mirror I could find: Sally.


She offered up her white blazer in place of the fur, and cinched me up with a little Chanel.

The end result? A second photo-op and a little game of "who wore it better?" ;)
So tell us - which way do you like it best??

grin and bare it


Did anyone else know that deep in the lower east side of Manhattan, there's an actual Doughnut Plant that makes nothing but delicious doughnuts, all day, every day? Well lucky for me, lovey dragged me there Saturday night, and I'm officially hooked. Yes, girls. Some ladies head into NYC for 5th Avenue - I head in for the doughnuts.

I've decided the best way to deal with the whole season conundrum is to let little bits of skin show at a time. Ease the limbs into spring. My experiment started with the shoulders and has since migrated south to the knee area.

My knees are starting to like it. You've been warned.

lazy days


Today marks my first day back to school after a week-long winter break. I will definitely miss
the days where I could lounge around in PJs all day, iPad in hand.
With a little lipstick, of course!

dusty


Remember when Sally was searching for the perfect jacket to carry us from winter to spring? We should've known to look no further than Mommy's closet. I found this little beaut stashed between a denim jumpsuit and a white peacoat. The perfect earthy color to top off a muted palette. Pinky promise some brights will return soon!

It's always fun to pretend I'm one of those street-style-perfect models when I throw together a casual look like this. Reality: I'm overworked and over-exhausted, scrambling to get to class on time. Until Tommy Ton and the like turn their lenses on us students, I remain a lone creature in the style world of 7AM and rush hour traffic -
law-students-off-duty, anyone?

studly


Studded bag, studded shoulders, studded necklace. I know we're supposed to break out more delicate details this time of year, but I just can't escape winter's grip! While the weather is tempting enough, my ASOS order should really get me in a spring mood - yellow skinny jeans, anyone?

birds of a feather


It's a beautiful day, so I let the birdies out to fly! I swiped the blazer from Sally's closet because it's a bit too cold to go sans jacket. Everyone should invest in a good white blazer. If not, steal one from your sister! ;)

new in: save it for a rainy day


zara bird print blouse (similar style here), sparkle & fade sequin blazer (available here)

Some recent purchases.

You may have already seen the sequin blazer, but if you're like me, you can't get enough of it!
As for the blouse, birds have a special meaning to us lately, so I couldn't pass up the beautiful print :)


forever 21 necklaces (available here)

I'm forever a slave to Forever 21's jewelry. It's so sneakily inexpensive and fun.
Bonus: upside down, the necklaces kind of sort of look like people, no?
I'll take the beehive 'do in the middle, please ;)

go rilla


If NYFW is any indication, apparently furry arms are still a 'thing' for Fall '12 (see Jason Wu, BCBG, Hervé Léger, Carolina Herrera..you get the idea). Coincidentally enough, I picked this furry beast up at Zara less than 24 hours before the first model stepped foot on the runway! Trendsetter? Perhaps. Amazing sale at Zara that was impossible to pass up? Now we're talking! The last one of its kind with a price tag of $19.99. I took it and ran.




zara coat (similar style here), zara blouse (similar style here), h&m jeggings (similar style here), alexander wang lia messenger bag (available here in white), converse sneakers (available here), house of harlow 1960 necklace (similar style here), h&m bangles (similar style here),
tribal print bangle from the galapagos


Hope you all have a very Happy Valentine's Day! Any special plans for the evening?
