Cold Air and Purple Velvet

outfit deets: shoes - c/o Big Buddha // thigh highs - American Apparel // tights - H&M // dress - Forever 21 // cardigan - thrifted // coat - vintage // scarf - H&M and remade

My gosh it is cold out! I found that in most of my photos today I was giving the stink eye to the camera. It was so cold! I was disgruntled with the air. It wasn't until the very last photo that I cracked a smile - probably because I realized I would be able to run in the house in a few seconds. Believe it or not, I am still wearing all of the attire pictured in the first two photos as I sit here and write this because I am still FAH-REEZING. Did I mention it's cold? There is a cold weather alert in my area. Brr.

I wore this out for a thrifting adventure in which I bought a big warm fuzzy white sweater among some other great finds. I have been on the lookout for big sweaters lately and I'm glad I found this one before christmas! I picked up this purple crushed velvet dress from Forever 21 a little while ago and have worn it a few times since but never managed to snap decent outfit photo of it. I love the slight military detailing with the buttons and the slouch pockets are a great touch.

Anyway - I am off to see Waiting for Superman at the local theatre with some friends. I am hoping it's good - I'm sure at the least it will be insightful.

I'll be back tomorrow with a new outfit methinks, I've been a bad blogger this week.

Just so you know, I adore you guys and all of your sweet comments.

  2. it is VERY cold. my feet were frozen taken picture today.
    that dress is beautiful. forever21!?! i really need one closer to me. :(
    you look beautiful and i love the photos.

  3. ooo very cute! Love the purple pop of color in the scarf.

  4. Yeah, WAY TOO COLD. It isn't even snowing here which is so obnoxious. If it's going to be 15 degrees all day it should at least snow so I can go skiing. :/

    This outfit is awesome! I love the dress! The detailing & the color is so pretty!

    I'd love to hear what you think of Waiting For Superman. My parents saw it last night and said it was really good.

  5. I have to go to Forever21 next time I'm home in Toronto. I've been wanting a velvet dress for Christmas, for some reason.

    It was really cold today. At least you don't have four feet of snow like we do in London!

  6. I enjoy cold weather, but idk about snow weather all the time haha. I would probably cry.. no kidding! haha
    Anyway, I love your shoes and coat! I LIKE the color of that dress a lot =)


Thank you so much for the comment!
I love hearing from you guys.
