urban outfitters and a cuppa

Dress: Slip. Necklaces: Thrift & African shop. Socks: American Apparel.
It’s rainy outside so I stayed in, flicking through the Urban Outfitters Holiday look book with a cup of tea. Above are the items that REALLY caught my eye (I plan to be ALL OVER that necklace when it’s released. Love the chunky jumper too). note. I call sweaters jumpers.
My cardigan by Vince is old and nobbly but I love it. I need one of those de-fuzzer thingies. The dress is an under slip.
I shot the first video for my closet tour, so I had the necklaces on when deciding what to wear for it. It’ll be in chapters. One video is not long enough. That sounds scary actually…

    Karen- I had that exact same Vince sweater! I actually just consigned (one reason because it was so fuzzy!) anyways…try taking a razor to it and shaving off the fuzz…it’s kind of a tedious task but it works really well. You look great and you’re making me regret giving up that sweater!

  26. ange tombé says:

    Anywho, i love you in thigh-highs! Cozy and hawt!
