dream of dree

Dree Hemingway by Patrick Demarchelier for Vogue China
It's full-blown winter in the Midwest; Dree has me dreaming of warm weather with her bare legs, mix of patterns and colors, and wonderful LV rain jacket.
I'm so very bored with everything in my closet, and I'm craving some color in my life right now.
Maybe it's time to shop..
p.s. Her hair.. can you say fabulous?

stolen scarf

Nothing really new here except the scarf which isn't even mine. It's my mom's but, I've been holding it hostage the past few days. I've been wearing it all the time (including right now) and I love it; love the color and how easy it is to just throw over your head and go. I should probably give it back to her soon..
As for the rest of the outfit--nothing I'd wear outside of my house because one, the top is the remains of a lingerie onesie that had the straps and bottom cut from it from a Halloween costume last year and two, the skirt is window decor from my bedroom. I yank it down every now and then and see how I can drape it on my body in different ways, trying to form it into something that could actually be wearable.

jean button-down; a&f
shoes: bakers
Got these studly platforms a few weeks ago from bakers. They're pretty comfortable for 5-inchers. (ok, maybe 4 3/4)
Hopefully they will last me through the treacherous Wisconsin winter. We've had no snow yet (clearly), which is slightly odd for it already being the end of November, but I'm not complaining.
Although there'd better be some by Christmas.
Now off to curl up with a blanket, some hot tea and my lovely homework.

I've had a broken computer for the past two weeks. Boo. I've had to make-shift for the time being; using my dad's laptop when I can and the computers at school. I finally got to upload the 700 pictures on my camera that have been accumulated over the past two weeks, which means new blog material to come! So keep checking in :)
This dress was yet another gift for my birthday in October. The bottom has a wavy, multi-length hem with one side longer than the other and extra fabric to make it all floaty and romantic looking when it catches wind. It's hard to tell in these photos, but the dress is made of three different materials--a jersey knit, satin and a sheer, chiffon-ish fabric--sporadically sewn together.
The scarf is ridiculously huge and wrapped probably four times around my neck, making it slightly difficult to move my head, but it's ok.
Dramatic and oversized, just the way I like it.
The sleeveless thing was ok when I took these pictures a few weeks ago, (we've had amazing weather the first half of November in Wisconsin) but now it's almost officially winter and the temp. is dropping.
I picture a form fitting, ankle-sweeping black military-esque jacket/trench over this.

space bunny

 I stayed in this year for Halloween. Pretty lame, I know. I usually have plans months in advance and a costume whipped up before I know it. I didn't have the time nor cash to spend on making a costume this year, and I refuse to buy a pre-packaged one at a store. Last Halloween I spent $60 on one part of my costume which was a pair of black, high-waisted Topshop sequin hot-shorts. I told myself I'd wear them again since I spent so much money, but that hasn't exactly happened. Tiny sequin shorts on Halloween? Yes. Tiny sequin shorts on a regular old afternoon? Eh, not so much. 
Bored and on probably my fifth reese's peanut butter cup by 1pm this lovely holiday afternoon, I decided I can't go this Halloween without dressing up at least a little bit..
The first thing I thought was ears. That's easy. I can throw them on and instantly have a costume. I had a cat ear/headband thing but I wasn't feeling it.
Five minutes later, after gathering some tin foil, cardboard and elmer's glue, I let my creative thoughts run wild and bam, I had bunny ears.
They're Louis-Vuitton-Fall-2009-collection-esque; ridiculous and oversized yet so completely awesome.
False eyelashes, crazy whiskers and too many accessories later, I had my costume.
I was called a cat a few times by my dad and a random trick-or-treater.
I can see where they could be confused but I think the giant, tin foil BUNNY ears on top of my head are a pretty big clue.

tiered dress: h&m

fur scarf: h&m
boots: chinese laundry
necklace: macy's
Another dress I got for my birthday which is about three sizes too big. I ever-so-slyly hid an elastic belt in almost the exact same color as the dress underneath the first tier. It brought up the bottom two layers a bit so it didn't look like I was drowning. I tend to buy my clothes too big, sometimes intentionally and sometimes not. This was unintentional, however. I loved the muted color as well as the contrast between the perfectly pleated layers and the flirty ruffles too much that I couldn't pass it up, and the size was something I could work with. I thrive off the challenge of pinning, tucking and sometimes slicing to make things work. 
Plus it was only $15.

I've been looking for a sleeved, form-fitting dress in something other than black. I got this little number a few weeks ago for my birthday. I love that it can make a statement all on its own; it doesn't really need accessories, however, the dress's simple shape allows for some fun mixing and matching of other patterns and prints.

leather pants: target
v-neck t-shirt: charlotte russe
silver cuff: walmart
jewel ring: ae
shoes: h&m
fur coat: vintage
I just got these faux-leather pants for my birthday, and they're such a nice alternative to jeans. The inner part of the pant has a panel that's another material. I like the contrast of the shiny leather with the matte, stretchy inner fabric. It creates a line down the inner-mid part of the leg which makes them really flattering.
My mom, sisters and me found this fur coat at a Goodwill in another town over from where we live. Its condition is close to immaculate. The inside lining could use a little reinforcing of the stitching, but that's about it. The size and color are great, too.
Love it.
