Happy Thanksgiving

This holiday season, I am thankful for Korean BBQ, Zachary Quinto coming out, and my SNL fantasy (Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, and Jason Sudeikis).

It has been an incredibly busy holiday. I have been really behind with writing while preparing for the big move to New York. To tell you the truth, I have been drowning myself in work, completely uninspired. But I have a helluva vacation lined up and I cannot wait to go to the Philippines and Hong Kong. Also, I might try and score a new camera on Black Friday so I can easily take more daily photos. Lugging around an SLR is neither easy nor practical. Other objectives for boxing day include a new flatscreen, a Playstation 3, and some Blu-Rays. The fact that there are no clothes, bags, or jewelry in that line up is telling. Either I am in a creative slump, or I am saving for my trip/move. Perhaps it's both. But the holidays are here, and I have much to appreciate: I have the best family and friends anyone could ask for!! This is my favorite time of the year. I hope you all get to spend time with your loved ones :)

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen in their Halloween video for Style Mint

An entire day of blogs, news, and Charmed has inspired me. I haven't been able to post lately on account of writer's block. A lot is about to happen in my life and the stress had me so flustered I forgot how fun fashion can be - it all depends on the mood I'm wearing. I just wish I wasn't in a savings holding pattern. Hours of correcting what the Halliwell sisters are wearing has made me want to go shopping!!

All in the Family

Here is the legendary mother Jerry Hall and her gorgeous offspring Georgia-May Jagger in the latest campaign for H&M. I am forever in love with Jerry's glamor, and it is no surprise her looks would be passed on to Georgia-May. Flawless, unique, blond bombshell beauty - true signs of rock royalty.

Speaking of H&M, the launch for the Versace collaboration is only a week away. There are a few pieces that I want but I am reluctant to wait in line and join the madness this year. It was different for Comme des Garçons and Lanvin because those menswear pieces were timeless and seasonless. Versace is anything but subtle. I feel like you must be cautious when selecting from this season's limited editions. If you show up to a party wearing a turquoise palm tree print shirt, there is a huge chance some other queen will too, and no one will NOT notice.

Varsity Blues

Zara Jacket, J. Crew Khakis, Lanvin High-Tops, Hermés Jewelry

My long time need for a letterman jacket has been temporarily sated by this piece from Zara. It isn't quite the quarterback special, but the contrast leather sleeves make this the big sister version. The proportions can be changed with a simple tuck, it wears quite differently from doing up the buttons. I love the shape of the neck as well. Applause for versatility!

As happy as I am about this jacket, I still want a nice letterman with my initials and a few patches. Let me know if you see something!! Obviously the prep and spike combo continues. I find myself wearing more black again, but I don't think I could ever give up color. There is much from my closet to be sold as I prepare to move to New York. I wonder what will make the cut and what will prove to be cases of fast fashion impulse buying...
