Outfit Post #74: Shapely Hips

I’ve talked about this before, but I like to try out different shapes and silhouettes even though my go-to is the fit and flare. I really liked the shape of this dress when I saw it online. I thought it was interesting, pretty, and oddly flattering, despite adding extra volume to the hips.Β  The print made me happy too.

Outfit Post #73: Red is for Love

I meant to post this outfit for Valentine’s Day, but didn’t get my shit together. Fortunately, nothing bad has ever happened from someone being over a week late for Valentine’s Day. Am I right? πŸ˜‰

Speaking of love, this picture looks fake, but it’s a real picture of the real life duck couple that have taken residence in my apartment building’s pool. They’re always together. In the pool. Is anything more adorable?

Outfit Post #72: Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

We rarely get snow in my neck of the woods, but we’ve had a lot more than usual this winter. Fortunately, novel weather makes for new and exciting wardrobe possibilities, like the new toque I bought at a Christmas market (SO comfortable). I’m also sporting my new leggings from http://additionelle.com which honestly aren’t super warm, but are definitely super cute. I’m into the whole printed leggings thing and these are great.

Btw: I have, on more than one occasion, been confronted by a stranger in the street asking me “Did you really get that in New York??”, referring to my hoodie. For the record to those haters, yes, I surely did get it in NYC – so mind ya business! πŸ˜‰

Outfit Post #71: Black Sweater Dress

Well, an all black outfit seems appropriate for this week’s events. This dress is super comfortable, and I’ve added a little sass with the leopard print pumps. At least if the world ends, I’ll be going out in style πŸ™‚

Outfit Post #70: These Pants Though

These pants are from Nadia Aboulhosn’s latest collection for Addition Elle. I’ve paired them with a top from her collection from last year. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to find enough occasions to wear them, but I loved them so much I couldn’t not buy them. I’ve actually worn them twice since I bought them a couple of weeks ago. The first time was to the grocery store πŸ™‚

Outfit Post #66: (OMG) White Jeans

I’ve long admired a white jean…on the rack. However, whenever I tried a pair on, I became convinced that white jeans were developed as an international conspiracy to create an article of clothing LESS flattering than complete nudity.You know, a pair of pants that say “Hey leg cellulite, let’s make YOU the star of the show!” And while I’m not at all ashamed of my cellulite, I’m rarely looking for a pant that makes it the focal point of my look. Then I found these atΒ http://thebay.com and I started to think that maybe everything was going to be ok.
