skulls and snakes


my obsession with snakes and skulls continues, and somehow i inadvertently combined about three of my faves in this outfit.  i'm still torn if i am in love with the matte nailpolish (i have owned it in the glossy version for a while and wear it year round)- to me it almost looks like i dipped my nails in wall paint, but i could possibly be doing it wrong.  or possibly applying it as i am running out the door, which is why i end up looking like i used a 2 year old child as a manicurist.  i decided to wear my favorite boots again, which stand up surprisingly well to the slush/snow/salt/puddles that populate the area as well as carry my new favorite lucite clutch. all that aside, busy weekend where i was successfully able to avoid more football, dance party until 5am, and still fit in a completely productive work schedule.  also had time to hit up the town with my friend andrew with ballcaps and neckties to squeeze in some photos.....success!!

weekend warrior

 my favorite weekend outfit on yet another typical cold, gray january day.  i have what appears to be an extreme sensitivity to cold, and yet if i get too hot you can pretty much guarantee you will hear me complain as well, so when i have a day off work i tend to throw on as many tops that will keep me warm and deconstruct from there.  i guess it doesn't help that my leggings are ventilated and only serve the purpose of enhancing my outfit rather than keeping me warm.  piles of shirts, piles of rings, a big cozy hat, my favorite shoes, and a purse big enough to fit anything i may accumulate during the day makes for the best weekend wardrobe.  another collaboration with andrew from ballcaps and neckties and his talented photographer friend ben means that the weekend will be anything but boring.....

remix 2010

 starting 2010 off with new ideas and collaborations: working with andrew of ballcaps and neckties and the results have been worth the wait.  it is awesome to work with another blogger who shares similar ideas, and also helped me find some of the best locations around for pictures. despite the freezing cold, we braved the outdoors long enough to shoot this set at one of my frequented weekend spots...note to self, do not wear purple lipstick over already frozen purple lips, the results leave something to be desired.  beginning the new year with my all time favorite scarf again, showing that it can be just as versatile for the winter as it is during the summer (whatever it takes to convince myself that it was a "must have" purchase).  also had fun editing my usually huge luggage sized purses down to the bare essentials to fit in my lucite bcbg clutch.  with all my belongings on display, i have to keep it minimalistic.  andrew is wearing a hardwood classics by the franchise pacers hat, h&m scarf, burberry tie, brooks brothers shirt, and a zegna blazer.
