Say hello to my new favorite coat! When I first saw it, I knew I had to have it. Two tone colorblocking in burgundy and beige with fur collar and giant fur pockets! It is so cute and cozy! I wore a polkadot dress in the same shade of burgundy underneath, completed with over the knee socks and an oversize handbag. On a different note, I have been going back and forth about cutting my hair for months now. I have had long hair for as long as I can remember and I really want a change. However, I really love wearing my hair up in a bun, and I won't be able to do that anymore if it's short. If I do cut it, it will be shoulder length and I would redo the ombre. What should I do? What do you guys think?

Colorblock and Polkadot

Strike a pose in stripes! I never really cared for stripes growing up but as I get older I see stripes as timeless and essential. A striped tee with a classic khaki trench, a striped collar button up sticking out of a sweater, a striped dress on its own, or the recent trend of vertical striped denim... you really can't go wrong. I've been really into the oatmeal color lately and when I came across this open front sweater with tan and oatmeal stripes on clearance for 8 bucks, I was more than thrilled! I paired it with peter pan collar chambray top, vintage high waisted riding pants, vintage oxfords, vintage cat tapestry bag, and braided knit headband.

Hi, I am a crazy cat lady, what else is new? You might recognize this dress from the runway two seasons ago in Victoria by Victoria Beckham Spring 2012 Collection. But let's be real, I am not going to spend $1,250 on a dress, so here I am wearing a replica of it. Cat print, pleats, collar, drop waist... perfection. Thought I would throw in a couple of extra colors to make the look more fun. The bag tied the outfit together by bringing out the red in the cat print and matching the burgundy of the laced up flats.

Lazy day in an easy outfit... these tribal print slacks are so comfortable I could die in them! Gorgeous colors, high waisted, and amazingly comfortable! They are such a statement piece that I kept the rest of the outfit rather simple in a plain heather gray tee and a cream cocoon sweater. But of course, I always have to complete the look with a pair of shoes, this time it's The Stunning by Jeffrey Campbell (you know how I love my JCs)!

This is the first time I have ever posted photos of myself in clear lens! Little do people know I am slightly nearsighted. I used to wear them back in school during lectures and now at movies for better viewing purposes haha. Honestly, the only thing I have trouble seeing is the menu on the wall faraway when I go to, for example, Starbucks. I don't wear glasses often because my case of nearsightedness is very mild and I simply don't like the way clear lens look on me. I had my one and only pair of prescription glasses for 13 years until I lost them last year when I went to see Moonrise Kingdom at the theater. I've been on the hunt for a new pair ever since until Firmoo contacted me a couple weeks ago. These half black and half clear glasses totally caught my eyes! I love how they look vintage yet edgy at the same time! They only took 5 days to arrive, good quality and fit great! Oh, and the best part is... Firmoo offers first pair free program! Your first pair is free, you only need to pay for shipping! I highly recommend it! As for my outfit, I went for a preppier look (to match the glasses) with these gorgeous vintage high waisted trousers gifted from Beta Boutique all the way in Latvia! I created a monochromatic look around them with different shades of pink and fuschia.
