(Necklaces: Vintage, Jewelry: Brighton, F21, Ralph Lauren, Guess, Monet, Sweater: Sabu, Jeans: F21, Shoes: Dolce Vita, Sunnies: Gap, Nail-polish: Revlon - Red Bikini, Lipstick: Wet n Wild- Purty Persimmon)
This is my favorite new sweater purchase !! i haven't really bought any sweaters this winter because i already have a bunch after my years in Boston, but i've wanted a chunky knit like this ever since i lost mine from high school !! Yes people, i had a sweater like this in high school which i loved, and it was a gift from my second cousin. I'm not sure when i lost it exactly but after moving so many times in the past 10 years, i guess it got lost in the shuffle. So when i saw this i knew i had to have it !! its perfect for leggings and even boots and a skirt. In this outfit I paired it with three Vintage necklaces which i stacked up together to give this outfit a little glamour, since the sweater itself is very rustic. And thats also the reason i wore my favorite glittery loafers , to give it a little more bling. Aren't they super cute?
And of course i always need a pop of Red or Orange or Pink and that comes in with the red nail-polish and lipstick

(Satin Pants: Vince Camuto, Satin shoes: Vintage Bruno Magli, Wool Blazer: Vintage, Lucite Clutch: Vintage- hand-me-down from my stylish mother, Tank: Zara, Jewelry: Vintage, Sunnies: Gap, Belt: Vintage)
I've been meaning to do a post on this outfit for a long time, i actually wore this outfit out a couple of times and people were like "whoa!" but after a the initial shock i got a lot of compliments on it. I love this outfit so much although this is the first time i belted the Blazer. I love monochromatic outfits, as i'm sure you can tell if you've been following my blog, and Red is a favorite of mine. I also have a fetish for red shoes, i don't know what it is my i can't get enough!! These beauties are vintage Bruno Magli in red satin !! how awesome are they? and the heel isn't that high so they are relatively comfortable. What's great is they match my red satin pants perfectly. Another favorite of mine is my mom's lucite tortoise clutch which she gave to me, its a favorite of mine. I absolutely love it !! I don't wear it nearly enough, mostly because i save it for special occasions and also because it doesn't fit much stuff inside, but i think its so unique and chic and beautiful.
And one last comment: how awesome is my "LOVE" ring? its a vintage model based on the famous "LOVE" statue which exists in a few american cities, one of which is my beloved Philladelphia !!! I lived in Philly for 3 months while in school and absolutely loved it. When i saw this vintage ring i jumped for joy as its super cute and because its my ode to"the city of brotherly love".
Gosh i love paisley, i wish i had more paisley items in my closet. Its such a classic design !!! And how awesome is this wrap?? its soooo warm and beautiful at the same time, and in Red....i mean what more can you ask for??

Here is another one of my amazing sister's DIY Denim projects. She saw it on a blog we both follow and decided to make it herself. The original is embroidered but my sister bleached a pair of dark jeans then painted the pattern on with acrylic paints !!! How awesome is that? and on the left here she is modeling them.
