lbd scarf 1

When a person is incapable of buying anything but black clothing, what does it say about that┬áperson’s soul? I would contend that this particular soul is feeling tre chic and not tre goth. It may be the season for bright colors, but that’s where my scarf and nail color come in. Besides, ain’t nobody got time for contemplating matters of the soul when there are deals to be had. I snagged this Anthro dress during a sale and it’s now one of my favorite garments to date. Fun fact?┬áCheck out the texture and remind me to skip my granola bars because dress does double duty as a crumb catcher. It’s saving that for a snack for later, because LBDs be classy like that.

faux leather cozy outfit 1
Holy blog break, Batman! Yes I’m still here and if the title didn’t imply – I’m totally in denial of the passage of days that means it’s an entirely new year. In the spirit of denial, I present a Best of 2013 post well into January 2014. (Juan-uary anyone?)

One of my favorite things about this last year was a break in my typical style and nothing proves that more than my faux leather obsession. Don’t be deceived, I actually don’t live in these pants. But one could, because they are quite comfortable and versatile for even the most classic of wardrobes. And you’d better believe that I rung in the New Year in these favorites while dancing to a Talking Heads cover band. #funtimes

Last time, I was going for more edge and this time comfort was key. Paired with a cozy tunic sweater and some strappy sandals made for a fun day of girl time in the city by the bay. Seriously, what is better than burritos, gab, a little photoshoot and a Hitchcock double feature?

Okay, okay. At some point I promise I’ll shut up about pleather leather faux leather – whatever! Please know that I’ve been holding onto my faux leather pants – as seen in this fun photoshoot! – but that the extended summer has kept me from wearing them quite yet. So while I wait for cooler weather to grace California, I’ll check out these looks for inspiration. I love how this style can be so versatile – slouchy sweaters, breezy blouses or layers under blazers – throw on a pair of hot shoes and you’re good to go!
