where the wild things grow

{vest/ F21, blazer/ Empyre, denim/ Alloy, boots/ Elle for Kohls, sweater/ American Apparel, broach/ vintage Chanel}

I'm all about this vest right now. I recently dug it up from storage and haven't been able to put it away. The vest was purchased last year on impulse when fur was starting to reach trend status; unfortunatley it was barely worn for it seems this very large abominable snowman-ish vest hardly goes well with just anything. This year though I'm throwing caution to the wind and just going for it. It seems not everyone is on par with my new found vest obsession as my sister so eloquently put it-- "you got a lot going on there".

On a much different note, is anyone out there interested in doing a blogger secret Santa?

  12. So great meeting you earlier this week! We have to do many more bay area blogger meet ups :) Love the vest! I've been eying one at Nordstrom and currently debating whether or not to purchase it. Blogger secret santa sounds like such a cute idea! I'd love to participate if you get one going.

  14. @themidnightbloom: no I'm not really allergic to vanilla. It's more of a metaphor for my usually ecentric style!! And sometimes I just don't care and continue to pile on the jewelry and furs ;)

    @Sunaina: This pic was taken at my apt complex in San jose, ca ;)

    p.s if anyone is interested in a Secret Santa blogger gift exchange contact meeeee!!!

  19. I loveee your boots, and I know I always rave about how gorgeous you are, but I'm going to repeat myself again and say it one more time: you're stunning.

    And you can definitely rock that fur vest. I loveeee your sister's comment, too, haha. Sherrie usually tends to wear everything in her closet at once (tights, socks, shirts, cardigans, sweaters, jackets, scarves, completely colorful and bundled up), especially when it's cold. Next time she does that, I'm going to borrow your sister's line - "you got a lot going on there" lol.
