Maybe just a half a drink more...

Theyskens' Theory dress' first appearance out... from my recent Barney's haul! It looks much longer on me than on the model on the website but I think longer makes it okay to wear in the winter-time. Usually, I don't wear things out that I just buy (I don't know why!), but this one made it out just exactly 7 days after the purchase.

This hi-low dress is cool because it's kind of backwards-ish. Usually, the recent trends have been short in the front, long in the back. This one is longer in the front and shorter in the back. And it's super comfy and I think that most people would think that the back is sexay!

More Art

H&M printed silk dress, GAP metallic silver belt, HUE tights, Christian Siriano for Payless booties (also seen here), BCBG MaxAzria necklace (last seen here)

I go to several art events a year, so I like to stock up on art event-worthy outfits. I had this piece laying around for about 2 months and I thought it'd be a fun print to wear out for Artopia. I also decided that since I had that necklace laying around in front of me from the last time I wore it, it would also work with this dress to add some bling. Too bad it was rainy outside and sort of killed my hair a little bit.

Artopia is an annual event that combines art, fashion, food, alcohol and fun into one event. I went with several friends and had an awesome time, even though I didn't drink much! I had had enough the night before and couldn't handle another night of it! Either way, still good times, as usual!

Bishop Arts

Blouse from Saks 5th Avenue, H&M suede/cotton blocked leggings, Luxury Rebel booties (last seen here), Charlotte Russe necklace, 3.1 Phillip Lim 'Edie' bag (seen on celebs here), Rayban sunnies

Took a long drive down to Oak Cliff not too long ago to visit the Bishop Arts District. By long drive, I mean something someplace still in Dallas, but outside my 15 mile radius comfort zone. The area has some small boutiques, consignment stores, and some restaurants. You can find some really strange, but cool things around here. It was my first time and it was a pretty good experience... Just cold outside!

Stocking Stuffer

Urban Outfitters sweater dress, Kelsi Dagger thigh high boots, BCBGMaxAzria jeweled necklace, Banana Republic clutch

The holidays are right around the corner and I should be wearing things that are more festive. Well, I love to wear black. Most of my staple pieces are black. Uhh... you can wear black boots more than any other colored boots, am I right? Still, this doesn't explain why I need 54375619 pairs of black boots... many of which are the same style, length, and material. But HEY. None of them are EXACTLY the same, ok? ;) Anyway, I'm saying this because the ones I'm wearing above are almost identical to another pair I own... same brand, material and length... but slightly different cut and style. I was going to return one, but never got around to it and now, a year or more later, it's too late. Go figure. This is my first time wearing this one and I love it. Super comfy and I think it makes your legs look longer = sexier. Duh! Haha every girl should get a pair of thigh highs. And no, they are NOT the same as over-the-knee boots or knee highs (I still love all my knee highs, too!). You need them all. They're just for different looks! Loving mine and they keep my legs warm, too! Better than wearing pants! :D

And anyone interested in these (worn this once) or the evil twin of these thigh highs (BNIB), let me know! I found them both for a steal and am giving up one for exactly what I paid!

... and it feels so good! :-)

3.1 Phillip Lim shirt dress, Miu Miu sandals

Old friends reunite at a 1 year old's birthday party. As I've learned, when you're older and are working, it's harder to find time to hang out with friends. We 3 on the right were all bridesmaids for the one on the left years ago. Always so nice getting together with old buddies and talking about new things. Love!
