*sheer force winds*

black pink outfit, sheer outfit, see through, karl lagerfeld h&m

don’t know if today’s outfit of mostly sheer, see through fabrics was a particularly wise choice for the gale force winds out there that are cutting through me to the bone :(  at least there’s no snow!  hahaha!

*navy sheer & gold for an indian wedding*

wearing: see by chloe sheer dress ($5 filene’s basement GOOB score!) || h&m gold dress (swapped) || n.y.l.a gold/mesh ankle booties (similar)

oh wow…looksie!  a regular ol’ outfit post.  FINALLY!  hahaha!  it’s been a crazy month, so i’m grateful for this very lazy, yet still busy & fun 4-day thanksgiving holiday weekend.  MDH & i didn’t go to my in-laws in PA as we typically do for thanksgiving as we had our friends’ wedding to attend here in boston.  our friends are indian & i wish i had ended up getting a traditional sari to wear, but i was also happy with the appropriately festive & sufficiently gilded outfit i ended up putting together :) 

accessories:  aldo outlet earrings || asos ankle cuffs || express gold coins belt (from high school!) || ebay acrylic clutch || vintage mink stole

*sheer snakeskin shirtdress*

as much as i love both trends & have plenty items of both, i’ve always been been more partial to snakeskin than leopard print.  it just fits my personality more.  it doesn’t scream “look at me" like leopard print does, but maybe more whispers in your ear & makes you do a double take.  yeah…like that ^_^

i adore these sweet ladylike shoes which are easily over 10 years old.  if you haven’t figured it out by now, i find it hard to throw anything away!  i remember too when i first bought these pumps, i thought they were pretty high & chunky & were quite uncomfortable for me to walk in.  bwahaha…little did i realize the height of the heels i’d be wearing now!

also, i got this XL dress from one of the many clothing swaps i go to & it is humungo on me!  nothing that wrapping its matching belt around a couple times can’t fix…hahaha!  i’ve learned quickly at swaps that not having the correct size of an interesting item doesn’t preclude taking it home.  a belt here, covered with a blazer or cardigan there & no one’s the wiser that it’s not the perfect fit :) plus, if you’re lucky, like me, you get plenty of sheer blousony fabric that flaps flirtatiously in the wind ^_^

wearing: swapped h&m snakeskin dress || glass pendant (santorini gift shop) || anne klein watch || inpink earrings || nine west bow pumps
