I have been away, I apologize! My computer is at the apple hospital. it's sick :(. But hopefully I will have it back by Friday!

Tonight I will be spending New Year's Eve with my family at home, but we have stocked up on my favorite champagne,Sofia (It also comes in little pink cans with matching pink straws, how could you not love it??)

Cheers lovelies!

Little Red.

Last night we braved the storm to go out for dinner. And then we did doughnuts in Malainie's car because there was no one in the parking lot. I decided to dress up, however I had to switch the heels out for my winter boots. There is something that I just love so much about black and red together. I love this skirt, however it really needs to be hemmed. Pleats scare me, though.....

Tonight we are finally decorating our christmas tree! I will post pictures from our adventure to Pepperell, Mass. to get it, because it was quite comical.

Sweater- H&M (it has a big bow at the neck however it is on the other side. you can see it if you click the picture!)
pleated skirt- thrifted/altered by me
ombre tights- target
peep toe booties- nine west
knit cap- f21
Red Riding Hood Memorabilia- courtesy of 20 years of collecting by Mama Rose :)

PS: Everyone should listen to St. Vincent, because she is lovely and mesmerizing. This entire album is a gem!

How to Stay Warm & Pretty

How to Stay Warm & Pretty by SecretlySimone

Ostrich Feather Bolero- Topshop
Grey Terry Thermal-
Long Leather Gloves- UO
Beret- Dorothy Perkins
Double Wrap Scarf- Wet Seal

OH and why can I not buy this bolero (and matching skirt too!) on TopShop? It will only let me buy from the US site, and the US site does not have it. I nearly cried.

Baby It's Cold Outside...

I am definitely back in snowy New Hampshire.

Today we decided to finally go and cut down our Christmas tree, however the weather was not on our side. It has been blizzarding all day, and so it was too snowy to drive too far. Instead we just went to Mcdonald's because the Germans were craving greasy American food. Then we came right back home, made hot chocolate, and sat by the fire.

PS: it is supposed to snow another 10 inches by tomorrow! But I am ok with that because I have nowhere to go. So, as they say...Let it Snow! :)

I hope you are all enjoying your holidays!

Hanging by a thread....A Blue Flannel Thread

I have two more exams tomorrow, and then I am done with school for an entire month! I am anxious to get home, despite the fact that my family has not had power since last Friday. I hope it's back by Wednesday night, but who knows. Oh New England. My camera is falling to shambles, although its my own fault. I don't deserve it...I keep dropping it/losing it in my parking lot and letting it get run over. I swear, though, it has nine lives. It still works perfectly about 90% of the time...and then sometimes I just have to tap it on something to get the lens to come out....

This is my favorite shirt lately, a little boy's plaid button up from the Gap (although I found it at Goodwill). I have so much to blog about, so many pictures to put up, and I will have lots of time once I get back to New Hampshire. yay!

skirt- Erin Fetherston for Target
belt- thrifted
bow clip- H&M
disgusting bland dorm room- compliments of Belmont ResLIfe

P.S. everyone should listen to Cat Stevens, he is quite lovely.

Velvet Obsession

Velvet Obsession by SecretlySimone
Bubble dress-, derby hat -, Copper Key Headband, Erin Fetherston for Target shorts, pumps,

All my life I have had secret obsessions over lots of little things, things that other people find weird, but I mostly keep them to myself. On Saturday while at the Venus and Mars open house, I came across this amazing black crushed velvet blouse, with ruffles and a low neckline, victorian, mmm. Mackenzie thinks I'm crazy for my intense love affair with anything velveteen, but I can't help it. I'm just drawn to it. I guess it kind of reminds me of holiday parties as a child, dressed up in black or red velvet jumpers, velvet hair bows and headbands are a MUST, and any kind of velvet accents on shoes make me swoon. (PS going back to Venus and Mars briefly, my crush on Karen Elson might just reach stalker level, especially with her right across the street from me at any given moment. kidding...kind of....)

So since it is the holiday season, and while others are pulling out their sequins and glitz (although I have nothing against a nice sparkly new years dress!), I will be reverting back to my inner child and prancing around in a tiny velveteen dress, with some pretty tights, a hair bow, and maybe some mary-janes. OH how lovely.

Love Simone Babydolls.

When I was home for Thanksgiving I sewed my little heart out, and Shanelove was awesome enough to take some pretty pictures with me and my loves for the myspace.

now I am going to study forever and ever and ever for buying and accounting and math. ick. But hot chocolate tonight with loves!
