Inspiration - Alexander Wang Fall 2011

So recently I was browsing through pictures of Alexander Wang's Fall collection and I came across a few photos which had inspiring pieces. Long flowing sheer and silky fabrics was enough to deter me away from writing my long overdue essay. Can we just admire the shoes for a few minutes here, and maybe the flowy shirts too? and for someone who loves black this collection was just my cup of tea. I am in love.

Check out these pictures:

Haul - H&M Knits and Blazer

I was recently at H&M and decided to see if I could find some pieces for winter. To my luck,I came out with a whole bag of goodies! I got 2 sweaters a blazer and a ring which isn't in the post. Chunky knits are exactly what I reach for in the -20 weather (an increasing) weather. All of this stuff should be in stores now if you are interested.

On a side note, sweaters are a good investment as they can be worn for more than a year, they are trendy and are always in for winter. I hope to see if I can grab a couple more longer ones! If you know of any good places with long knit sweaters comment below!

Sweater with elbow patches $29.99 CAN

This one is my favorite!
Cable Knit Sweater $34.95

Up close in more detail. (Love the color combo)

Hope everyone is well!

Birthday! - FOTD

It was recently my Brithday and my friends and I decided to go out for dinner. Here is a couple of pics I took quickly before heading out the door.

First lets pardon the overly dry lips.

Face: Nars Sheer Glow foundation in Santa Fe, Kat Von D tattoo concealer, with a light dusting of Maybelline Dream Matte Powder

Cheeks: Benefit Hoola Bronzer, Nars Orgasm Blush on the apples, and a little bit of Nars madly

Eyes: Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Pencil in Whiskey all over lid and underneath lash line, to add more depth I used Maybelline's Chai Latte quad and mixed the dark brown color with the lighter brown color in the quad. Used a shimmery white highlight since the rest of the lid was very matte. For eyelashes I packed on Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara.

Lips: Maybelline Color sensational Lip stain in Plum Flushed ( I think the lip stain causes my lips to look over dry)

Wasn't really able to get a full shot of my outfit but I did manage to get this photo of my top and blazer and it captures the details quiet well. The tank is from Forever 21 ( Probably 2 years old) and the blazer is from Urban and the brand is ONLY.

Florence and the Machine - Ceremonials

One of the albums I've been anticipating the most this year is Florence and the Machine's Ceremonials. The album was finally released on October 31st and I knew I would soon be engulfed with her beautiful haunting lyrics and melodies.

I've been listening to my favorites: Only if for a Night and Shake it out non-stop since the day they were released. And now that I finally have my hands on the complete album its been playing non-stop. It so difficult for me to even chose a favorite because I love them all! Spectrum and Never Let me Go are both being played repeatedly on my itunes.

If you've been on the hunt for some good music check out Florence and the Machine's Ceremonials, guaranteed you will not be disappointed. And as a plus it helps making studying more easier to do.

Here is a remix of what the water gave me:

Inspiration - Sequins

Recently my minds been consumed with pieces with sequins in them and found these images on a street-style blog. A pop of shiny silver or gold would add a chicness to any outfit and would be a great piece to add to your selection of winter clothing especially come the holidays. Zara has a couple of metallic sweater if you want the look but don't want to be wearing full on sequins.
