it is december 22 and there are 10 more days until the new year! 2009!
so for each number of days until the new year i will post an equal number amount of awesomeness. that sentence probably didn't make sense...but you'll get the gist of it as the days go on if you don't get it now.

10 items from

ok, so this little collection of items definitely has a dark, slightly bad girl feeling to it. but lately i've been being wooed by darker colors and edgy details. my eyes definitely widened by 25% when i saw these super scary in a good way landver spike hoop earrings. i know rihanna could rock these, no doubt, and i'd love to have the oppurtunity to wear these around somewhere. calvin klein makes amazing underwear and i loved the bright red and lace detail of this perfectly fit seduction emotion bra. one designer i admire a lot is Roland Moureti. he really knows how to make a chic, ladylike structured dress without the detailing being too obvious or having the dress look overly structured. his creations always look just right. i was ecstatic to see this nougaro origami pleat top and loved the idea of pairing it with another creation from Mouret's RM by Roland Mouret line, the javel pant. for the working woman who doesn't want to freeze to death in a pencil skirt and barely there hose these pants and amazing black top would be a great alternative.

for those of you who don't know, i have an obsession with blazers. before high school or later on in elementary school my mother gave me a blazer that had been my brother's when he was younger. it was a little boy's blazer and it fit me perfectly. it was a deep navy, it had subtle pin striping and was lined in beige. i loved it and wore it to death. currently it is hung in my closet with a huge hole in the elbow and looks as if it is beyond repair. since the destruction of my blazer i have been searching endlessly for the perfect one. until a few days ago my search had been futile, but i picked up one very similar to my little brother's blazer from forever 21 (AND IT WAS ON SALE!). this blazer by karl lagerfeld is another great find. i love the cut and i'm a sucker for dark blazers. a black blazer will go with anything. lately i've also been intrigued by sequins, and for my readers who have long beautiful gams ( case you don't know) this antik batik silver sequin skirt for $350 would be perfect by winter parties and for any parties really....except business parties. i am loving the luxe deep black suede that form these exquisite pedro garcia alvie ankle boots for $280. they are so elegant, and remind me vaguely of the yves saint laurent suede boots from fall 2008, but i like these garcia ones better. last but not least are the thurley lace panel dress which is to die for (i love that beautiful dove grey silk and the sexy yet appropriate black lace detail), the must have basic james perse tees and the shockingly pink marc by marc jacobs bag. it will add a pop of color to a dreary winter ensemble and will be fun and fresh in summer.

About Me

My photo
I am an immigrant. I was born in the caribbean and wish i was there rather than having to deal with the sporadic weather of chicago. I love fashion. My family is crazy, and blogging is a hobby that keeps me sane. I also strongly believe that it doesn't take money to look good, it just takes innate style.
