red shoes.

 Lace black shirt- bought at some random shop in Palms Springs 
Thrifted pants, shoes, belt and jacket.

The weather is pretty gloomy today and I thought I would add some color to my day with my newly thrifted red shoes. I think they are so cute, I love the little bows! 
I'm going to a couple holiday parties so i'll be sure to wear these with my festive outfits! 
I'm off to do some last minute holiday shopping! See you!


everything wonderful.

Happy Wednesday everyone!
Hope everyone is having a nice week so far, and studying hard for these weeks of finals! After receiving an 80 on my statistics test (yeah, i'm horrible at math so this is shocking!) I felt I deserved this  H&M overall dress I've had my eye on for quite some time. I'm loving everything corduroy this season so this is perfection. And I happened to grab it on sale! Win!

the holiday.

Newly thrifted Zara Pencil skirt
J. Crew Button up shirt
Old navy sweater 
F21 necklace
thrifted belt
H&M shoes.

This is my ideal holiday party look- comfortable yet stylish.
 This pencil skirt is such a dream! I was instantly reminded of a scene in The Holiday in which Cameron Diaz is wearing a very similar skirt. I have no idea why someone would want get rid of this beauty and it's by Zara! I seriously live for these kinds of finds! Aaah!

Betsy couldn't help but get in some pictures too! 
she's such a cutie!
Hope everyone has a nice weekend :)


my dear.

American Apparel grey flannel and tights
H&M wool black dress
Thrifted platform wedges, belt and purse.
This is a very simple outfit consisting of one my favorite little black dresses. I bought this dress a couple of years ago and I love that I can still wear it and easily dress it up or down. That's the whole point of having a LBD right?! I'm sure I won't be getting rid of this one anytime soon. 

p.s I would like to greet my new followers, I look forward to seeing all your blogs! And thanks to all the lovely girls leaving sweet comments! xx


all around and away we go.

 Everything in this outfit was thrifted.
Except for the bow necklace, I made that myself. I recently thrifted these
$5 dollar Bass penny loafers! What a great find, don't you agree?!

My cousin was nice enough to take these pictures for me. I'm so happy with how they came out considering that he's not the best with cameras!
I don't have much to say, but I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed this little break!


What I wore today.

Thrifted button up, belt and dress
American Apparel cardigan
Dooney and Bourke crossbody purse
& the shoes are newly thrifted
 they are by Bass and got them for 5 bucks! Score!

Betsy wanted to join in on the fun! She can be cute and nice when she wants to haha!  And yes I'm wearing a different cardigan in this picture because I realized right before I left the house there was a big hole on the side of the other one! :( 

Have you guys seen the movie Like Crazy yet? I saw it a couple of days ago and it was AMAZING. I went by myself and enjoyed every second of it. And yes i'll admit, it I cried! I usually never cry during movies and since I was alone I was all like "Oh what the heck! Just let them go, not trying to impress anyone here!" Have you ever gone to the movies by yourself? Was it a pleasant experience or will you never do it again?


a little peek inside my room

A lot has changed since the last time I took pictures of my room as you can see HERE. So I decided to do a mini tour with the help of my friend Bryan. :)
 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
The jewelry box was a birthday gift from my lovely friend Ashley
 and the lucky little elephant was given to me by my mom.

            The Bow necklaces were handmade by me and the Russian nesting dolls
were also a gift from my mom.

I LOVE owls, i'm always on the hunt for them at thrift stores. 
I have about 5 of them around my room  haha!
My beloved 100 year old singer sewing machine. 
When it's working it's magic it's louder than thunder but it works like a charm!

This record player was a gift to my dad a couple of years ago and later I found it in the basement! He said he didn't like the sound quality in which I totally disagree, so I decided to put it in my room and give it some much needed love.  Rumours by Fleetwood Mac is one of my favorites albums!
 What i'm wearing:
Ralph lauren pullover
thrifted skirt
handmade necklace by me
 boots are from Shoegasm NYC

My room is the upper part of my parents house and it's a converted attic. I love all the space I have and when i'm in the creating mood, it sure comes in handy.
I get most of my room decor at thrift stores, yard sales, antique shops and occasionally IKEA. I prefer decorating with old things because I like seeing the potential that these items may have and give them a new home and lots-a love! 
Well I hope you guys enjoyed this little tour and thank you for stopping by!
