Joan Drape-r

Crop top- Zara
Jumpsuit: Forever 21
Necklace: Vintage
Shoes: Merrel

I had always thought about putting these two clothing items together and never committed to it. The top has become a little too crop after many washes- which means many wears, I was very much in love with it last year- and the jumpsuit is a bit difficult to walk in as the pant legs always seem to fall below by feet. Nevertheless- I love the draping of the two of them combined- draping style of the 70s seems pretty popular lately- so I put my brave face, and carefully moving feet, forward. While these shoes don't have much style to them at all, I swear to you that they are the most comfortable flip flops you will ever wear. Try them. NOW. I definitely enjoyed myself in this outfit!

I also enjoyed myself on Halloween!
I was Joan Holloway from Mad Men- a show I've recently fallen for. I just downloaded season 3 today! Here's a picture of my costume:
I got a lot more 'I love Lucy" than Joan... but hey, both women know how to get what they want.

Grey Gardens

Black Dress: Francesca's
Grey Dress: Forever 21
Tights: Macy's
Boots: Urban Outfitters
Belt: Forever 21
Nail Polish: OPI's An Affair in Red Square plus Essie's Matte About You

This is the first time I've ever layered one dress over another- and I really liked it! Layering for me can be hard- I dont typically like looking like a big puff ball. I just couldn't give up this grey dress to Summer- I really wanted to find a way to keep wearing it. So the black long-sleeved dress and different belt seemed to be the best option. And these tights! I love tights! SO MANY TIGHTS. This is probably the only reason I'm excited for the colder weather.

I wish I had a close up picture of my nails. Because they were so great that I couldn't stop staring at them for days. My roommate has that Essie polish which when you put over any other color, it'll make it matte. For some reason, the contrast between the matte and the shiny red was spectacular. Reminded me of  those old fashioned matte Christmas ornaments-

which are just awesomeness in themselves
Happy belated Halloween/early Christmas!
