Wed Nov 25th - Pre Turkey Day

Sometimes it just gets really difficult to remember what your spending limits should be. In my case, I realize that I do have spending limits, but seem to forget about them in a moment of retail lust. For example, lately I've been on a binge for accessories and just nice little ways to play up my many many dresses. This includes, but are not limited to: gloves, tights, jewelry, headbands, books, videogames, and amazing macaron snacks.

blackcurrant macarons and fresh black nail polish

green tea and strawberry macarons - my favourites!

With the Christmas season creeping up right after the glorious Tryptophan day tomorrow, I realize that expenses are just going to go apes with all the Christmas shopping happening.

But I'm sure some of you girls know what I mean when I say that there are just some things that are too good to pass up. This dress was a steal at H&M for only $15, and the gloves were an amazing ebay find for $8!

Dress - H&M ($15)
Sweater - Forever21 ($28)

Tues Nov 10th - Blustery Days

I've been spending copious amounts of time looking for inspirational and lovely photos. Maybe it's the chilly weather, but I love just imagining how I could reinvent my space into something new and different.

In the mean time, I'll just go about my day as usual with starry eyes and look for anything fun and crafty to make.

For my outfit posts, I'm thinking of putting in the prices I paid for each piece. I think it'd give a nice look into my little world of fashion, no? I might stop for after a while...but for now I think it'd be fun to see how thrifty I can get!

Blouse - Gap ($20)
Skirt - Forever 21 ($13)
Coat - MetroPark ($20)
Tights - Ebay ($5)
Booties - Ross ($20)
Clip - H&M ($5)

Total: $83

magazine spreads

Instead of making a regular post with a bunch of pictures, I decided to instead do this post a little differently.

I recently drafted up some magazine spreads with some small stories I threw together. It's nothing serious, but I figure it gets my point of view across as both a graphic designer and a fashion-minded individual. So without further ado...
