What I'd Like to Be Wearing: Russian Baboushka Doll

Russian Baboushka Doll
Emilio Pucci black wool coat, $1,705 / Layered tutu / Fogal thigh high stocking / Brian Atwood heel boots / Black bag / Lara Bohinc scarve, $305

Lately, all I really want to wear in this cold weather is an over-the-top Russian baboushka doll inspired coat. I'd wear it with a skirt, tights, boots, and a little scarf tied around my head like an old Hollywood starlet.

079: Orange and Oxblood

Chiffon button-up - American Apparel, Pin and necklace - Vintage, Skirt - Sparrow, Bag - Ted Baker, Sunglasses - Chloe 2145, Shoes - H&M

This was probably one of my own favorite outfits ever, or at least in a long time. Lately, I've been noticing that I'm gravitating towards outfits that feature two bold colors, and oxblood and orange just go together perfectly. The socks were added for practical purposes but ended up really making the oxblood in the outfit pop, in my opinion :)

Music Monday: The Ruminant Band

You guys! I'm on a plane to New York right now! I know, I know, I was supposed to leave last Friday, but my flight got canceled due to the blizzard...big bummer. In any case, wish me luck out here - I'm here working on a few projects (this is a business trip) and will be home in about a week and a half.

 Now, this song is a better Sunday morning song than Monday morning song, but seeing as it's Music Monday and not Music Sunday, I couldn't post this yesterday. In any case, enjoy.

078: My Fashion-y Hat

Hat and shoes - Forever 21, Trench Coat - Kay Unger, Blazer - Express, Suede pants and shirt - vintage, Bag - Ted Baker, Evil eye necklace - Urban Outfitters

Woo! So, here is it, a real outfit post! I feel really "fashion-y" in this a real "fashion person" as they say...but I think it looks good on me and will keep me warm in NYC as it's made of wool. Did I mention I'm off to NYC tomorrow for work? Yup!

Also, be jealous, because as you can see I am wearing a pair of truly high waist pants made of not truly suede. A Goodwill Sacramento find that I will never, ever stop worshipping.

What I'd Like to Be Wearing: Creepers

evil eye

BOY London printed shirt, $71 / J.Crew j crew / Givenchy skinny leg pants, $1,640 / Nordstrom socks / T.U.K. rocker shoes / Yves Saint Laurent yves saint laurent bag / LK Designs hamsa bracelet, $130 / American Apparel pom beanie / Burberry lip makeup

Right now I really want a pair of creepers. Ria cemented the idea in my head because she just looks so darn cute when she wears them. I'd wear them with a boucle jacket and my suede high waist pants, which you guys will see tomorrow.

Music Monday: When They Fight, They Fight

Another random iPod discovery, I love this song by the Generalists! It has a swingy, 50s tune to it, but at the same time you can tell its modern and not actually from that time. Combined with the forces of the two too-cute kids who made this silly YouTube vid...what's stopping you? Watch!

Current Obsession: Miranda Kerr for Harper's Bazaar April 2012

Images via Pinterest 

 I have my days when I dress kind of grungy or maybe even a little crazy, but for the most part, when I think about what I want my style to tell people, I think that I want to look like a lady. A stylish lady, an elegant lady, a classy lady, and a powerful lady. I love these photos by Terry Richardson (really can't believe I said that) for Harper's Bazaar April 2012. Also, Miranda Kerr is beautiful, but you already knew that.
