Celeb-spiration: Winter Street Style

Winter is upon us! We got snow!

Some celebrity inspiration for dressing in cold weather.

How do you dress for the cold??

I gave myself a much needed shopping break to a local thrift store, and LO' BEHOLD.

Hidden between a large shoe shelf and puffy jacket sleeve, was an evergreen, tan trimmed 'Guess' cross-body.

I immediately checked all the seams and tags to make sure it was authentic. But I still questioned it, since it's missing a 'Genuine Leather' tag.

So I went to the Internet, of course.

At first, nada. But as I continued scrolling images, I found one with a similar style tagged as a 1990s Guess bag.

I Google that, and I find a near perfect match! After intense research, observation, and questioning, I can safely say that this bag is:

• 1980s [vintage]
• Pebbled Leather
• Original Hardware
• Original, Classic 1980-90s Guess Plaid Lining
• Authentic Guess Logo(s)
• Made in China*

a.k.a. 100% REAL

Pretty cray. But get this, I'm chatting up the owner about the legitimacy of the bag, and out of nowhere, she cuts down the price.


As I polish my newfound goody, I still cannot believe jusssst how real it is. If you have any reason that I should believe otherwise, let me know (or not)!

*some>most Guess bags are actually made in China, including the older ones

p.s. Thank you all so much for putting up with our lack of blogging, everyone has finals and a busy holiday schedule; us included! xx

'Twas 57º...

... and I pulled yet another simple outfit.

I promise to be more creative and complex with what I wear, but finals and semester grades have really weighed on my mind and time!

My mom passed down several fall/winter skirts from her days, saying that I would get more wear out of them. This skirt has an  adjustable waist and huge slit (it runs the whole length!), meaning it's always a perfect fit with just enough sass. 
Plus, the thick fabric keeps my legs warm!

I wore clogs at first, but shortly changed into sneaks for the sake of running around. I think I prefer the look with Chucks.

p.s. please forgive my facial expressions. I thought I'd try to be fun, but it just kind of turned out awkward... so... sorry.

Review: Body Wash


  • The bottle says it's suppose to be used for "winter dry skin", BUT after getting out of the shower my skin needed additional lotion to have smooth, not-dry looking skin.
Verdict: I don't recommend purchasing because it does not moisturize winter skin like it advertises.

There's something undeniably happy and warm about the snowy month of December.

A J.Crew magazine is page after page of inspiration; I want to buy everything in every color! The sweaters and patterned pajama pants are perfect for this season parties.
