{Nailed It} Blood-Drop Mani DIY...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Halloween is nearly here, and what better way to spread some ghoulish cheer than with a blood-drop DIY mani a la Prabal Gurung? This was beyond easy to do, and it took no time at all... So basically all you vampire-loving, Dexter-obsessed peeps have no excuse not to try this one. Here's what you need to do!

Step 1: Paint your nails with a nude base coat to give them a clean, polished look. Alternatively, leave nails completely bare— it's up to you!

Step 2: Dip a toothpick or bobby pin into a deep red polish and apply small dots at random to the bottom third of your nail (2 or 3 dots per nail looks best).

Step 3: Drag the nail polish from the dots you just created down to the tip of the nail.

Step 4: Repeat for all nails, finishing with a uneven horizontal line at the tip of each nail.

And that's it! For a mere 10 minutes of work, you've got yourself a creepy, yet surprisingly chic manicure... How's that for doing it yourself? xx

{Style} Hearted Girl...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

A couple weeks ago I saw a pic of a heart sweater on my friend Kassie's blog and thought to myself, "Man, that's one cute sweater; I wish I had something like that to wear." About 30 seconds later I realized that I had a nearly identical sweater already in my wardrobe (last seen here) and that the only reasonable explanation for my memory lapse is that I hoard clothes like a mo-fo. Hey, what do ya do.

In other news, I'd like to draw your attention to my lips in this post... Notice anything different? You guessed it friends, I am sans red lipstick here. Not something I plan on making a habit of, but a fun little change nonetheless. 

Happy Monday, lovelies! xx

{Style} Making a Statement...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

October is nearly over, and let me tell you, I've never been more excited for the start of a new month to begin... Can you guess why? That's right my friends, as of November 1st my self-imposed shopping ban will lift and I will be reintroduced to the land of the living... or, well, the shopping. I haven't stepped foot in any kind of store since before the ban started (what, what!), so to say that I'm excited is a bit of an understatement... Whoever said material things can't bring happiness was a total chump. xx

{Style} Leather + Leopard...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Baby it's cold outside, but I refuse to bust out the parka and winter boots just yet... Call me crazy, but there's no way I'm giving in to the upcoming harsh weather without a fight. Come hell or frozen blue extremities, I'm going to wear what I want, even if it means improvising with a giant (and admittedly super warm) sweater. Hey, I do what I can. xx

{Style} Plaid & Persona...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Nothing says fall quite like forest green, so I figured why not double up with a blazer-boot combination? These boots were an Urban Outfitters find about six or so years ago, and they only see the light of day during certain circumstances; namely, clear days when the suede won't get utterly destroyed by rain and gooey dirt... Yes friends, I'm smart like that.

In other news, I'd like to draw your attention to the snazzy new bracelet on my wrist... My good friends at Persona were kind enough to pop it into the mail for me, and I couldn't be more thankful. It's a super versatile piece from their Black Label, and I love how I can mix it up and wear different combinations with the marcasite beads (and even mix metals— peep the gold watch combo!). Thanks, Persona!

{Details} Nautical Stripes...

Photobucket Photobucket

It's no big secret that I'm a huuuuge fan of stripes— I mean seriously, can you think of a more versatile print? It's an all-season style that can be rocked just as easily in spring as it can come fall, which is precisely why I love it so. This particular dress is perfect for brisk days because it's lined, long sleeved and lovely... How's that for your daily dose of alliteration? Throw on a woven belt, breezy vest and a pop-o-colour cuff (nicely done, Joe Fresh!) and you've got yourself a fall-tastic look. Easy peasy.

Casual layers, rich saturated colours and a touch of print mixing... Happy Monday! 

And since I'm still recovering from my Corso 32 food coma last night (locals, you know what I'm talking about!), this one's going to be short and sweet... More stream of consciousness rambles to come, I promise. xx

{Houndstooth Week} The Gloves...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Full disclosure? I may have broken the shopping ban just a smidge in order to get these Joe Fresh houndstooth gloves... But since they're technically something I really needed (my hands were getting oh-so cold), I figured it was justifiable. From here on out, consider me back on the wagon, friends. xx
