GILDED AGE


'Helping Hands' Collar Tips c/o Merrin & Gussy, DIY Collar, White Chiffon Blouse c/o Sugarlips, Gold Skater Skirt c/o Awwdore, White Mountain Booties

In the past few years, I have become quite fond of the colors red and gold because of none other than Iron Man! Did you know that his new suit for Iron Man 3 is actually mostly gold? Anyways, I had a lot of fun putting together this flashy (literally) look and you can be sure this gold skirt from Awwdore will one day be worn in another outfit with lots of red! I hope some of you guys caught the US history reference in the title too; my APUSH teacher from last year will be so proud when I show him ;)

These rad collar tips are from Merrin & Gussy, which is Ben Galbraith's new online store (you probably will recognize him from Lookbook; he's the one who always has the cool suits!). I pinned them to this removable collar, and folded down the existing collars on this blouse to create this interesting neckline.

I'm also happy to announce that I was one of the 3 bloggers chosen by Chictopia to partner with Sugarlips to promote Chictopia's "Naughty or Nice" holiday contest in partnership with Lulu's, ShopAkira, and Sugarlips of course! To enter, you submit a photo of either your sexiest or sweetest holiday party outfits, and there will be guest judges for each brand that will select a winner for each category. The 2 winners chosen by each judge will receive a $500 shopping budget to the respective brand to shop with. This "Nice" look is going to be my first entry; and I did receive a $200 shopping budget to Sugarlips so there will be more holiday party looks to come! This contest runs until Friday, January 4th at midnight so I hope you guys will enter! :)


Just a quick update of what else I've been up to: last Friday, I took the yearbook photos with my friend Wade, as we both won Best Dressed :) Then Saturday, I got to meet Lany from the Asociete team early to say hi, and Sunday was the day of the photoshoot for their next Influencer lookbook! You may have seen some photos on instagram already. It was so much fun; over the course of 8 AM to 4 PM, we shot 8 different looks and also a video interview so you will get to see those in a few weeks! It was the most exciting thing I've ever gotten to do as a result of starting this blog. I'm very thankful for the opportunity!
