How funky is your chicken? How loose is your goose?

Kinda been in a funk this week. I feel like I'm so busy, yet it's been sooo slow at work :(  I've been missing a lot of friends too.. and my lovely sister. I hope she comes for a visit this month.

Saw these Deena & Ozzy sandals at UO and totally wanted them, but I didn't want to dish out $48.00 + the ridiculous shipping costs to HI. Then last weekend while doing some window shopping my shoe fairy must have been watching over me because I was able to snag a very similar pair (Chinese Laundry) for only $13!! :) I like the version I got becuase it's a plain thong instead of the toe loopy thing. My toe is much better by the way. Yay!! Still no heels or covered shoes though. Boo.

Went to B&N tonight on the hunt for a new sewing / crafting book, but no luck. I also wanted to pick up the new Nylon, but they were out too. wth! There was a table filled with amazing Alice in Wonderland merch and I wanted to buy every single thing.. but my wallet told me no...


{top - Lux, boyfriend blazer - Target, leggings - Macys, canvas wrap sandals - Chinese Laundry, clutch - SASHA, double finger cross ring - F21, bracelets - F21 & thrift}


It's nearly ONEam and the hubby just made us some coffee and heated up some homemade pound cake (Thanks Leah). I probably won't be able to ge to bed for a while now, so I'm off to craft and DIY a storm!  If you ever want a DIY made by me, I'd love to make you one. Let me know. Toodles!

I can't believe it's already February!!

Love, S

Your top is great! It works so well with your chic blazer and pants. Ooh I wish you'd taken a photo of the Alice in Wonderland merchandise.

I love this outfit! That blue looks just amazing on you! And those sandles are really pretty but UO's shipping costs are really horrible to Canada too, I never order from their website because of that.

You look great! Very classic - and I think turquoise looks amazing on you. I prefer the sandals you ended up with over the UO ones (and I even hate paying for their domestic shipping!).

Cafe Fashionista said...

I absolutely adore the way the teal top and the white cuffs totally make your outfit pop - it's amazing how just a little color goes a long way in enhancing the color black!!

I too almost splurged on books from the Alice in Wonderland display at B&N, but I managed to stop myself!! :)
