T Minus 5 hours till the new year!!!!!
(where I am....)
Just got home from work + running errands and about to start getting ready for The Black Lips show/NYE Bash over in East Atlanta Village. I have been wanting to post ALL week but literally just now have time, so sad, but I'm stoked to be sharing all this fabulous gear from Barneys CoOp holiday lookbook (picked up at Phipps plaza where I just discovered the branch-and am SO FREAKIN HAPPY-though I cannot afford much, a girl can always look!) Anyways I've got to keep this short due to the time crunch we're on, seeing as how we are going to pre-party at a friends house....but yea...check this shiz out...
are these not the most gorgeous earrings you've ever laid your eyes on?!?! the craftsmanship is impeccable!
this bag weighs a TON, I know this because I held it in the store (wishing, hoping, praying....that one day....yea, probably never...) so awesome though!
in high school I stretched my earlobes and the first set of earrings I had were these tapers that looked just like the tusk-like numbers on the left....these are much much more classy...also dig the wooded righties
this is a bag one could use everyday, with every outfit. love love love!
these talon earrings are especially awesome, they are a little native with girly touches which I can always appreciate. look closely at the price && get a good laugh :)
well those are my favs from the publication, hope you likey too!
I'm out to start curling my hair (which is probably pointless since the weather is super shitty) but hey-doesn't every girl want to get glammed up & sparkly to ring in the New Year??
NEW YEARS LADIES!

this year, due to several reasons we opted for a fake tree and for several other reasons (destructive cat, Target sales..) went for a 3-footer. the only issue I have with the little booger is the ornaments from last year are a little to large, but i found some minis at Ikea which filled in the extra space.
pretty happy with the outcome:
i spy an abominable snowman!
excited to show off some of our most recent (home) purchases-red shelf from a garage sale in the hood $10.00 new (but a little damaged on back, which doesn't matter) from Ikea, white chairs from Ikea, and black shelf on wall from Home Depot. So now our place is officially "done"!!!
last year's stockings made from vintage fabric, old sweater, vintage skirt, hobby lobby ribbons & lace, with some vintage pom poms.
ugh. ignore the weird spot on my dress-spilt water and then tried to fix it on iphoto-which obviously did not work....
[vintage Liz Claiborne dress, vintage Gucci purse, Anthropologie tights, vintage boots and jacket]
Friday the new work place had their Christmas party at a swanky italian restaurant in Buckhead with a delicious 4 course meal and open bar. afterwards we danced till the morning at the W like VIPS, it was nuts!! if only we could party like that all the time!!

my O my have i been crazy busy! the new work place involves a commute of 45-50 min and is from 9-6 making chill time at home pretty limited-especially if i've got to take care of anything afterward (ie. finding holiday dress via H&M, working out..etc..) so it may end up that the blog suffers at first, but i promise i'll get into 'the swing of things' and work in enough time to post-have lots to share (+ more scans!!)
casual look for a casual night//
hat//UO, tank//H&M, cardi//AE, jeans//True Religion, moccs//Yellow Box, jacket//vintage
hope everyone is having a good week so far; listening to Christmas carols (on repeat), gift shopping (last minute), eating sweets (tummy ache) and keeping up those holiday spirits!!

this weekend i'll be spending my time in dothan, alabama for dustys brother's wedding. nothing to crazy and then it's back to atlanta where i'll be starting a new job on Monday as the Production Assistant at Force Marketing. pretty excited and nervous at the same time, but i'm ready to excell and open new doors!
started this post yesterday && actually put some quality time into the content. went through 111 pages of The Fashion Spot's "model streetstyle" forum days ago and saved around 60 photos, then narrowed them down to these and i plan on doing another post of others. most of them are actual street photos but some are backstage (or after a show) which is part of their lifestyle, no doubt, and i thought those were pretty cool as well to include.
these should give you something to look/gawk at for now
if you look close, these boots are studded all over!
these girls found the sketchiest place around to hang out, love it!
apparently those are frye boots, pretty sweet look

since i'm sick and have time around the house, thought i'd catch up on an outfit post i've been meaning to get to. i was super stoked to wear my new (bought last year, out of season, on MEGA sale) Farylrobin wedge booties. don't know if this outfit is exactly meant for the kicks but i was determined to take them for a spin.
also wearing: blazer//Kenneth Cole, skirt//vintage, tights//Urban, purse(NEW!)//Elliot Lucca
well. what do you think?
i love the unique shape and textures and want to wear them out with some skinnies for a more casual look, you all will surely see them again.
hope your Monday was better than mine :)

hat//Wetseal, shirt//BCBGmaxazria, purse&sunnies//vintage, moccasins//Yellow Box
my friend introduced me to this little gem weeks ago and I'm already planning to revisit.
if I wasn't feeling super ill I'd elaborate on how awesome this joint was but the photos do all the talking.
we have a full house of folks in town for the SEC Championships and I must entertain, just wanted to drop a note, have a good weekend!
