I haven't done a dream outfit in a while and I figured while I'm away on vacation it's the perfect time since I don't have any outfits! I saw this black dress on The Outnet a couple weeks ago and it spoke to me. It is a perfect shape, not too tight but not frumpy. I styled it for Winter, but it would be amazing paired with some sandals come Summertime! I may take the plunge and buy it, but I haven't decided yet (probably won't and then I'll regret it.)

I chose a long sleeve turtleneck bodysuit instead of a regular sweater for the bottom layer to avoid unnecessary bunching because who wants that? To add even more warmth I included a coat, tights and a pair of awesome (PURPLE!) over-the-knee boots. I picked a brighter coat than I would normally wear to offset the darkness of the look. But I bet I would just wear it with a leopard print coat or something crazy like that!

I created this post a couple weeks ago while preparing for vacation and afterwards I HAD to buy the Brian Atwood heels. They were 80% off so I paid $439 instead of 2,195...but in my defense I had some money in PayPal, money from returning a dress from Christmas AND Christmas money from my Grandmother. Unfortunately it was all for nothing, they overwhelmed my short frame and I had to return them.

A super quick post today since I'm still on vacation, but I had to share these amazing Lanvin sandals! They were added to Net-a-Porter a couple weeks ago and I immediately added them to my wishlist.  The color combination is perfection and I love the gold detailing on the heel. I always enjoy NAP's product descriptions, here is the description for these:

Lanvin's sandals are crafted from supple suede in earthy tones of brown, army-green and storm-blue. Detailed with gunmetal studs, this slingback pair has an effortless block heel topped by a light-catching gold panel. Wear yours with a blouse and flared jeans.
Fingers crossed they are in the Summer End of Season Sale! Must.Have.Them.

Normally my wardrobe updates get wiped clean between Winter and Spring but I think for this year I'll keep it full until 2017. That way I can really keep an eye on what I'm adding to my closet all year. It's easy to get carried away when you only show 6 months of purchases at a time. So we're starting with a clean slate for January's update rather than keeping September - December as well.

Anywhooooo....on to this month's new buy(s)! I ended up not buying anything in Net-a-Porter's End of Season Sale. But not for a lack of trying. I ordered a gorgeous pair of thigh high boots and unfortunately they didn't fit (aka I'm too short for super tall boots) so I had to return them.

After I returned the boots I got a notification from eBay that an item I've been wanting for quite some time was relisted! The Saint Laurent patchwork blouse! It was listed for $599.99 but I got the seller to go down to $350! I had $25 in my PayPal account, $80 from a dress I returned at Christmas AND some Christmas money from my Grandma for the rest. So, technically, it's a Christmas gift, but it's still hard to see the money leave my bank account. (I'll share the full story in a feature post, unless it doesn't fit! It was supposed to arrive on Monday but the snowstorm ruined that so it will be waiting for me when I get home from my vacation.)

I also got a sweater from J.Crew at the outlets, but I used a gift card so it doesn't really count. *wink*

Same jeans two Throwback Thursdays in a row! But I had to wear this now because it's been almost exactly 4 years since it's original appearance! Amazing how time flies! This outfit is complete except the shoes. I finally got rid of them over the Summer because I stopped wearing them even though they were super fun.

Blazer: The Extreme Collection (Second Time Around), Turtleneck Sweater: Willi Smith (TJ Maxx), Jeans: Free People (Marshalls), Boots: Chloe (Roundabout Resale), Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop), Watch: Michael Kors


I call this my lazy luxe look! I wore this two weekends ago (as you can tell by the lack of snow) when I wasn't really in the mood to force an outfit but didn't want to wear jeans. The easy solution? All burgundy, everywhere! Leather pants: check. Cashmere sweater: check. Matching bag & shoes: check.  And the funny thing is - this is just as comfortable as my pajamas.
