Let’s just have a moment of honesty here…standing outside and having your picture taken in below freezing weather isn’t exactly the easiest thing I’ve ever done. In fact, the first time Kimberly and I took blog pictures together, we nearly froze to death. Frozen hands and chattering teeth…not cool Robert Frost (I love Kid President!).
For this particular shoot it was pretty cold outside and I decided at the last minute warmth was a “little” more important than fashion. So I changed my entire outfit. Also, I should mention this was the same day Kimberly and I locked her keys in the car while out on location. Thank God for Triple AAA. Minus those little details, we had a great shoot! I was very warm (and happy) thanks to my lamb’s wool jacket. Ok, so without further delay here is… Winter Sun.
I must admit…I’m loving the fur trend and I hope that it NEVER fades away. I feel like we are living in olden days when it was considered “normal” for a woman to regularly wear fur. I would give anything (well, not just anything…lol) to experience the fashion of that era. Just imagine…walking into Bergdorf Goodman’s on 5th Ave in the 1950s to purchase a lush piece of fur, a bottle of Chanel perfume and a pair of black stilettos by Roger Vivier. Oh, the splendor. Now that I’m done daydreaming, let’s get back to this wanderlust Get The Look Thursday…say hello Vintage Fur, my absolute most favorite #GTLT to date with imagery by Kimberly J. Photography!
One of my most favorite holidays of the year is New Year’s Eve! It is one of the few holidays that you can wear gobs of sparkles and it be completely ok! ha. After styling a super cute look for New Year’s Eve and planning a fancy smancy soiree, Jason and I came down with the stomach flu (along with everyone else in the Mid-Ohio Valley) and had to cancel the party. As you could imagine, I was pretty bummed. Mainly because I could not wear my new sequined skirt…but then I remembered my lovely blog readers. I figured I could at least share the look with you guys! So here it is….Hollywood Glamour aka Candace’s New Year’s 2014 outfit.
So, I’m not sure if you remember or not, but back in November I posted my “November Desires.” And one of those six desires happened to be this sweet reindeer graphic tee from the J. Crew factory and thanks to my amazing momma I was able to snag it! However, I was a tad disappointed upon receiving it to discover that it was EMBELLISHED and I ABSOLUTELY HATE EMBELLISHED graphic tees. It just looks cheap and corny in my opinion. I know…pretty harsh. But, after 2 hours of meticulously cutting tiny threads, I removed all of the bead work and ended up with the most perfect reindeer tee. I think I will name her, Olive. ha.
There aren’t words to even describe how much I am LOVING the faux leather trend. It is totally giving me life right now. However, I’ve had a hard time finding the right faux leather “ANYTHING” due to my rather bubbly butt. So for the last 10 months I have steered clear of this trend, until I discovered this little beauty in a friend’s suitcase!
Sooooo just in case you guys have not noticed, my most favorite fall pieces are the Live a Little military jacket and my Express cheetah print infinity scarf that I have featured a couple of times on Get The Look Thursdays! Not a week goes by were I DO NOT wear these two pieces at least twice…I just love them! But because I wear these pieces pretty often, I am always looking for new ways to style them…that way they look completely different than the last time, which can be tricky. Especially when I am going on day #67 of “NO PERSONAL SHOPPING!” Anywho, I have given myself a new challenge….learning how to make the most of my closet with what I have! Sounds a lot easier said than done, right? However, in actuality, it really is quite easy. It simply takes a bit more creativity on my end.
