Hitting the trends!

So sad that the pleather stripe isn't showing up in these pics... its there, I swear!
I was so afeard of these leggings when I bought them, because I thought I would be limited to wearing them with long tunic sweaters and knee-high boots, but now that I see the pictures, I think they will be far more versatile than that. They fit less like skintight leggings, and more like skinny pants.
Oh, if only those earrings were a little duskier, they'd be peeeeerfect!
So, this outfit... I am trying to remember the genesis. Oh yes, I wanted to wear something comfy, because my lungs are still in revolt, and I feel like crap, but after three weeks of no f*cks given, I really HAD to make a bit more of an effort. Ya, so I lied last post.. that wasn't last Friday, it was probably 3 or 4 Fridays ago... my bad. I am hitting quite a few Fall '13 trends, and they aren't even clashing! Grey, check, oxblood, check, (p)leather accents, check! Go me!

I'd like to chat a bit about the lippy in this post. I picked it up on a whim at Forever 21, while I was waiting in line. Impulse buy, absolutely. But, I was in the market for a berry lip color for this fall, because I don't have any in my collection yet, given that I stay very close to more neutral pinks and such. And I have to say, this lipstick is knocking my socks off! Well, it would be, if I was wearing socks. I am still resisting the wearing of socks... Back to the lipstick. Its great! It applies like velvet, so smooth, it has only the slightest loveliest scent, its super pigmented, and long wearing as well!! I feel like I should have paid way more than $4 something for it! I can't say anything about the other colors, but "Berry" is phenomenal. Actually, I think, given how cheap they are, I might go back, get all the colors, and do a Swatchey McMakeup post!

Tried something different; how do you feel about the center part?
On me: Pleather side panel leggings Ricki's White blouse Old Navy (similar from Ricki's) / Short sleeved grey sweater Ricki's from ages ago (similar from Ricki's now) / Oxblood Almond Toe Nubuck pumps Charlotte Russe / Lip color stick Forever 21 in "Berry"

Last Friday, casually

Friday. Even though every day at my office can be casual, I guess I just have this Friday thing in my head. Its the day before the weekend, and we just need to get through it, so lets get through it as comfortably as possible, yes?
Just wearing my old-faithfuls (the jeans) from Torrid, and this shirt that I inherited from my friend, the one that hands me down stuff. The blouse is from Old Navy, and its one of those shirts that I am SO glad my friend decided she didn't like. First, I have almost nothing in navy, and second, I love the little details on it.
You probably can't see very well, because the photography is so weak, but there is pleating at the bottom, gathering at the top, and a keyhole neckline thing going on.

I really need to work on my friendly smile... some serious BRF going on here...

I love my Boyfriend...

...jeans, so much. Seriously. I've been coveting these jeans since last Spring, and I finally have them, and they are just as awesome as I was hoping they would be. I have been wearing these non-stop since I got them. Honestly, they are so awesome. This isn't really the best outfit to introduce you to these jeans, since I am not loving this styling, but the one thing I AM loving is the combination of fancy-bitch heels with the distressed and relaxed jeans. I have an AWESOME outfit in my head that includes these jeans, but I haven't actually gotten around to wearing it yet, since I have been sick as a dog for over two weeks, and its all I can do to drag my ass to work, let alone have the gumption to get myself all gussied up.

Look at that, two old-timey expressions in one sentence... This is a banner day my friends!

So, I humbly request that you hang in their with me while I try to beat this cold/cough, and I hope to get back on my regularly scheduled irregular scheduling of posts.

Pray for me. Seriously. This cough is KILLING me!
