Shirt and leggings from; Fur leg warmers from ebay; Boots by Pink Duchess; Pashmina scarf; Vintage belt.

I love this website for making cheap copies of designer styles, but why make
leggings out of fabric that doesn't stretch? Seriously, don't buy these unless you're 80 pounds.
I had such a hard time getting these on, and I definitely wouldn't wear them out for fear of tearing them.
Nope, these are for pictures only!

This is not my cat. But ain't he cute? He belongs to Angie (Click here to check out her blog!).
Not sure if she ever officially named him. She called him "Monkey" a few times.

I loved the Fall 2010 D&G collection.. that whole ski lodge vibe.

The cold makes us lose our minds

Vintage pants; Jacket from; Tank by Forever 21; Shoes from; DIY fringe necklace; Cross necklace by Claire's.

So it's not as crazy as last year's barefoot-in-the-snow picture, but I wouldn't
recommend wearing lace pants in thirty-degree weather either.
We'll do anything for the love of fashion, right?

Winter Remedy

A cozy sweater, pink champagne, and an evening of flipping through my favorite magazines.
I found this amazing sweater at my thrift store a couple months ago. It looks like its handmade.
Makes me want to learn how to knit...

Handmade? sweater; Tights and socks by H&M; Necklaces by Samii Ryan.

By Samii Ryan

T-shirt curtesy of Samii Ryan; Dreamcatcher necklace made by me; Other necklaces thrifted; Feather earrings from eBay.

I recently received a few items from the Samii Ryan online store, this "Hungry Like a Wolf" t-shirt and the two beautiful handmade necklaces below. The necklaces are all a little different and they're sent to you at random, so there's a bit of surprise as to which one you'll get. And I love that they are all unique, so it's like having a one-of-a-kind piece.

But what she's probably most known for is her feather hairclips (You may have seen Ke$ha wearing the purple one on New Year's Eve w/ Ryan Seacrest). I plan on buying one of those soon. I really like the white quill feathers and the peasant and peacock feathers. I think those are the two that would look best with my hair color. Everything is also pretty reasonably priced, even for a thrift shopper like myself. Right now, this arrowhead necklace is on sale for only $5!

P.S. -->Follow me on Twitter<-- I swear, I'm gonna start using it now!

Disclosure: I received the tee and necklaces from Samii Ryan in exchange for a review on the blog. Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are my own.

Recent Buys and D.I.Y.s

The thrift store I work at is the best! I found these things today...

And this is what I'm working on now.
Fringe necklaces, obviously inspired by the
Roberto Cavalli Spring 2011 collection,
which I am currently OBSESSED with.

For this one, I borrowed the woven chain bracelet DIY idea from the blog,
HonestlyWTF, and I added the coin chain which was previously a belt.
It still needs more fringe, though...

My Stylish BFF Angie

This is my friend and fellow blogger Angie. We take each others pictures, but she's been so busy lately, which is why I haven't been making too many outfit posts. (Ok, so the weather and my car breaking down have been factors too...) Go leave her a comment and tell her to quit her job and come take my pictures!!
