Dreaming of Wedgies...

no no...not those kind, silly!

For years I have abhorred wedges, thinking they were strange and ridiculous looking, especially on me. Recently though, I have been drawn to the precarious creatures, specifically those of supple suede and maybe even a bow or two....

Jeffrey Campbell "Lamp" wedges

Chloe Multi-Strap Suede Wedge. Yes I'll just use that extra $950 I have lying around here somewhere...

Opening Ceremony Suede Bow Wedges

Moschino Cheap & Chic Peep Toe Wedge. Aren't the pom poms adorable?

PS I got some amazing goodies for Christmas, as well as some INCREDIBLE vintage Cosmopolitan magazines from the 1930s from my Grandmother's attic in Louisiana. A post on the aforementioned as soon as I recover from my weeklong food coma of Grandpa's mashed potatoes and gravy.

I'm Crushed...Velvet, that is.

Apologies for the lame pun. But I do have a rather strong fondness for anything velvet...My family is in town for the week before we head down to Grandma's in Louisiana for Christmas, and my sister and I had fun this afternoon getting dressed up just to go to Borders to fawn over the fashion magazines.

My outfit:

Crushed Velvet Dress- Blush boutique, but you can also find it here
Lace Cardigan- Rodarte for Target
Heels- Deen & Ozzy (UO)
necklaces- Target & Vintage

Hannahdoll's Outfit

Top- Anna Sui for Target
Corduroy Skirt- handmade

Dear Santa Mouse...

All I want for Christmas is the following:

This adorable little felted mouse from Etsy. I am kicking myself for not adding it to my favorites, though, and now I cannot seem to find it again. boo hoo.

This summer i read The Red Leather Diary by Lily Koppel, and since then, I've been inspired to start journaling again (even if just a few lines a day). Sadly, this journal is sold out everywhere I look :(

This Pom Pom Headband by Jennifer Loiselle

One of Yokoo's giant hand knit scarves to shield my face from the bitter wintery wind (ok not so bitter here in Nashville compared to NH, but it still gets chilly here!)

This bunny bank from Modcloth. I have piles of change laying around in old ziplock bags. It wouldbe much nicer sitting in this darling, no?

What is everyone else asking for?

Oh I wish I was a Beckerman

Things are going to be pretty cray-cray for me until the end of next week. Scary scary finals are upon me, and I have several drawings, papers, and tests. eek! BUT don't fret, because tomorrow I will be posting a sneak peak at the glorious Holiday Cupcake Skirts I made over Thanksgiving!

Until then, I leave you with today's outfit. Now, i spent most of the day being quite studious out at my Aunt's house in Leiper's Fork (read: middle of nowhere TN *but quite beautiful I may add..think deer frolicking in the woods and windy scenic roads), and so I definitely wasn't in heels or the leather jacket. That definitely made the outfit a bit more school marmish. But I couldn't help myself. I rediscovered these Beckerman wool shorts at Posh that I had tried on several months ago. It's true love in an oversized culottes kind of way.

Sweater- vintage (was mama's in college!)
Wool Charlotte Shorts- Beckerman (By the way, these girls are amazing. Check out their blog here!
tights- target
jacket- Charlotte Russe
locket- high school ex boyfriend
bag- anthropologie
