Faking gold

12/25/10






Piko 1988 coat, vintage scarf, thrifted Allison Taylor silk blouse, Forever 21 leggings/pumps/accessories, thrifted bag

As soon as the rainclouds drifted away, I ventured out to welcome the sun-kissed air and finish last minute Christmas shopping. There's always something so beautiful about the day after a good rainstorm during the winter time- it has a warm, golden flare to it, almost reminiscent of spring mornings. The change in weather shook up my mood and I thought it would be fun to channel a modern 70s look with fur, cheetah prints, leggings, and nude shoes. These pumps from Forever 21 resemble YSL's/Steve Madden's 'Caryssa' pumps, but are just as (maybe not, but it's doable) comfy and cost almost 70% less!

Cheers to the holidays, and I hope everyone is having a spectacular Christmas! Much love and gratitude, xo.

You are so gorgeous! I love those pumps. I've been wanting to buy some nude pumps for a while now and haven't found the perfect pair. I'll have to stop by my Forever 21 and see if they still have them. Merry Christmas!

Oh my gosh I love this look. It's so chic and understated but the rings and scarf bring an interesting, traveller-esque flare to it.

Just found your blog!
I absolutely adore your style. I would definitely wear every outfit you put together.

Do you live in LA? I was considering a fashion internship/ career there after I graduate in May, a lot of my opportunities are in NY, but I really think I might like LA better.
I'd love if you'd e-mail me anything you think I should know about LA vs. NY!

You definitely have a new follower :)
Hope you visit me!
