Lookbook: Pink Polka Dots9:00 AM
I love these suede boots but since the weather has been so terrible here I haven't been to wear them that much this season. It finally stopped raining one day so I was excited to pull them out to wear them for the first time this winter.
Cardigan: Banana Republic
Shirt: Forever 21
Leggings: Forever 21
Boots: Jimmy Choo
The boots are four inch heels and they don't look as comfortable as they really are. My mom is always asking, "How can you walk in those?!" I can walk around and go shopping in these all day long and they don't hurt one bit. They were a tad on the pricey side (ok who am I kidding, they were more than I've ever spent on shoes before) but they have been worth every penny. The way they fit to my legs are just perfection and the suede is beautiful in person.
Almost every outfit I wear is made up of high end items with cheap pieces mixed in. The key for me to buying cheap things are fit and style. This top I'm wearing is flowy so the fit doesn't matter. I also know that in a year I will be sick of it and not wear it again so I can give it away and not regret paying a lot of money for it. I know that I have an excessive amount of clothes so I do a quarterly clean of my closet and if it did not get worn that season, I donate it. My friends are happy to take it off my hands as is Goodwill and then I have more space in my closet so everyone is a winner! I don't believe in holding onto clothes for a "just in case". Because when that "in case" comes along, I will most likely not even remember that I have it. Also, when you live in a small space like we do I don't really have a choice as to where to store it! I can say that all the stuff in my closet and shoes included are less than 2 years old. I rarely hang on to anything longer than that.
For those who requested a how-to for my hair from this lookbook, we don't have a video camera so I won't be able to a do a how-to video, but I've asked J to take pictures so you will get a photo tutorial. Also, I'm working on putting together a makeup/eyelash tutorial so stay tuned for that!
Happy Chinese New Year!!
