five (okay maybe 6) faves for friday- NYE Edition

NYE is my favorite holiday {besides my birthday, that is}
I plan on drinking my weight in champaign.
What I WIsh I Was Wearing on NYE

Pocket bag
$155 -

Nude asymmetrical jacket



OPI Your Royal Shine-ness

So this is what I wish I was wearing.
I will probably be wearing a good chunk of my sequin collection.
{yes I have a sequin collection. & yes it is quite large}

Also from this list:
I already own the nail polish {gift from mother-in-law for Christmas}.
The fiance bought me the evil eye bracelet after I mentioned I liked it. he is the best!
A girl can't have too many evil eyes watching out for her. 
I also ordered the vine earrings from Alicia-Lynn-Jewelry-Designs & I should have them in time for NYE =)

So all I am missing is a $100 jacket, $100 pink satchel, $200 leggings.
But I think I will survive =)

Happy {almost} New Years Eve!

rock star incognito

So with my new hair style apparently comes a sense of rock star-ness.
I get more looks on the street then ever before & I guess I look effortlessly bad ass when I roll out of bed. 
I am a gentle person, I promise ;)
This may be the first picture on my blog that I am not wearing glasses. weird. but can't wear glasses while doing eye makeup if you know what I mean, they just get in the way.

What I Wore: grey coat- GAP {3 years ago}, cable knit sweater- JCPenny {recent shopping binge- got this + 1 other knit + 2 pairs of stockings for $18- used a gift card + coupon = happy/warm girl!!}, Jeans- Levis, boots- Steve Madden. Glasses- Tortoise "Tamara" glasses- c/o Proopticals.

& Just to solidify my status as a rock star. This is my purchase from my Christmas dollar bills:

I have been searching for a pair since my Denver trip last year. 
These have been on my "to buy" list for a while- & when I went to make the relationship official- they were on sale. #perfecttiming / #winning.

They will go with everything I own & my bad ass hair.
Get yours here for $21
