weekend’s haul

this was the other lacy item I got this weekend. Me and the man went to buffalo exchange and I’ve recently been into both lacy stuff and also drapey, bat-winged things. This is a shirt that has lace in the back and shoulder but is primarily white, and has batwings and draped like a dress almost. $10

I bought a prom dress, kind of early but the sale at dillards was amazing, so this dress ended up being only 30$. It’s a cute strapless heart neckline with black and blue plad and very cute ruffling at the bottom.

Dillards was having a huge sale so I went and picked up a few things. The first was this lacy white cardigan. The lace filled the entire back while the front was a drapey kind of soft fabric. Lately, I’ve been a sucker for lace, as you will see in one of my other items. this was 10$

These boots, I bought at an army show. I was so happy to find a pair that actually fit me, and were relatively cheap (20$) for brand new leather boots. I’ve always been a fan of military inspired clothing.

I also picked up from the army place, a cool green wool jacket from the korean war and I plan on sewing military patches on it. It was only 5$!

Lastly, I went to walgreen to get some beauty items, and got some Sally Hansen nailpolish which is my favorite and on sale for two bucks a bottle. My favorite thing recently is mixing colors to get new, weird ones. Then I got some Almay mascara, which was cheaper than my usual kind and actaully works alot better, for $7.

So, thats what I did this weekend, and next weekend I’ll put up a haul because I plan on going shopping at fashion with some friends and im getting a v-day outfit.

One really interesting thing I found today was the youtube’s interview with President Obama. I’m a big fan of Obama because I think he’s a great oral speaker and that he’s one of few presidents who actually has good intentions and isn’t out to screw us over. Heres the video:

fashion is an aphrodesiac…

one of my favorite hobbies is fashion; shopping, putting together outfits, critiquing fashion trends, etc. My ultimate favorite stores include H&M, Mango, Zara, Anthropologie, American Apparel, Urban Outfitters, Bebe, Gap, and the Black and White store. However, in light of recent events..that is, H&M has been discovered to have dumped hundreds of good quality clothes in their dumpsters rather than handing down the line or giving it away to the thousands of starving and unclothed people in the middle of winter…i have thus crossed them off the list.

Nevertheless, there are some essential peices of clothings and trends that have caught my eye for my winter 2009-2010 collective.

  1. the leather jacket. always in style, the leather jacket comes in white leather, brown leather, and black leather. I currently have a wonderful white leather jacket from H&M that retailed for about fifty bucks.

this is an awesome weathered leather jacket from www.tobi.com

2. cardigans. This is a classic, as well. Whether solid color or floral print, these are the best long-sleeve choice you could make.

3. overlarge knit sweaters. I love these. Throw this on with a pair of leggings and your set.

4. huge scarves. Scarves have always been popular in wintertime, but now we’re looking at scarves that eat your chest. Or look like it anyways.

This girl is wearing a huge wrap-around scarf. doesn’t she look comfy and warm? it’s from topshop.

5. Boots. This years favorite kinds of boots include: vintage cowboy boots, kneelength, boots with leg warmers, and biker/army boots. Uggs are out, people. They are ugly as futch and make you look like a ugly eskimo.

well, those are my top five trends for this winter. Came a little late, but I watch people make the trends first, not the stores. enjoy !
