Enjoy Weekends: Red Rendezvous

Can I just jump into this set and steal all the items. Yes I know, stealing is bad but that Lanvin trench coat and the Vivienne Westwood dress are so chic I could handle a night in jail, providing they let me keep my coat on. I also really like the Merci Gustave Eiffel Tower. I looks like something a girl with everything would get for Valentines day. Actually, this whole set puts me in the mind of something romantic. Now excuse me while I pull out my own fabulous trench coat, a classic chic dress, and some red heels while I eat pasteries and watch old French flics.
Have a wonderful weekend my stylish readers.

Ruffle Front Trench Coat

Raise your hand if you need this trench coat in your life! Chic, cute, fun-- there are so many ways I could describe it. And so many more ways to dress it up. Or you can be completely simply, since it makes a lovely little statement all on its own. Moschino definitely created a witty piece with this trench coat. What I love about it is even with the fun and fabulous ruffle front it still looks classic, making it appropriate for nearly any occasion.

Enjpy Weekends: I'll be late too

I won't be late for anything, because I probably won't be going anywhere this weekend. It's a study weekend. But oh how I wish I was studying in this outfit. Do you think it's too much for the library? It was the military jacket that caught my attention first. Then I thought, lets draw some more attention with a pair red leather pants. Hot! A few daring accessories later and ta-da we have a fashionably late outfit.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Wish me luck on my exam.

End of the year/new year faves

Sometime in the beginning of December, I realized that I forgot to do a monthly favorites for November. Exams had me busy and I think it just slipped my mind. I decided to just combine December and November in a sort of end of the year favorites post. Then I realized, oh wait, it's the end of January, so here we have a big splash of monthly faves. 

1. My readers: Obviously I love my readers, who wouldn’t, you’re all awesome! When I first started this blog last December, it was mostly just for me, because I never suspected that anyone would follow a blog that focused mostly on trench coats and accessories. To my surprise , this blog is growing and I love you all for it. It keeps me motivated and enthusiastic about posting when I see the comments, followers, and the trollers. So thank you for making this a wonderful blogging experience.

2.  Lush Gingerbread house. Lush had some great gift sets this holiday season, but the Gingerbread Tin House is my favorite. The items inside are a yummy splendor. Check out this video for more information. 

3. Sleep. For the first time in my life I battled with insomnia. 17 consecutive days without sleep! It was misery and my heart goes out to anyone who suffers from chronic insomnia. I couldn’t even nap. My ticket to dreamland finally came and I’m now starting to sleep. It’s only 3 or so hours, but it is better than nothing. Sleep I love you, you are my favorites thing!

4. Tea parties. This year, I’m going to have more of these. A good tea party is a magical thing. You can play dress up, eat cup cakes and throw your cares into a teacup.

5. Ugg Kensington boots. My life mission since November was to get a pair of Ugg Kensington boots. I finally won a pair on eBay and I think it’s going to be my favorite purchase for a long time. The Kensington boots are leather and have a biker look to them making them a little different from the typical Ugg boots. Though I can’t wear them to be glamorous, they are a more stylish than the classic Ugg boot. They are also extremely warm. I wear mine without socks and I don’t feel the cold even in minus 20 weather. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants a leather pair of warm winter boots. I bought mine from her service is great and she sells a variety of genuine Ugg boots for much less than normally priced.

6. Ulzzangs. According to Ulzzang true definition is "best and "face" = best face in korean. They are basically people with above average looks, sometimes with the use of photoshop and haduri who post their pics online, some becoming internet celebrities. From hair to fashion, this phenomenon is growing internationally, even featuring ulzzangs on a TV show in Korea. I personally am not a participating ulzzang. But I do love seeing the girls and boys who go through the trouble to create picture perfect outfits and scenes to post on the internet. And I’ll be posting tutorials and other fun finds now and then based on this trend.

January Pic of the Month

I was seriously contemplating if I should post a trench pictuture this month, seeing how the month is practically over. Then I thought...why not! You'll have a couple weeks to look at a darling trench coat.

Enjoy Weekends: And so we say stay

My sincere apologizes for not updating in a while. I was/am very sick. On top of that school is a drag and is dragging me down. I miss the thrill that only a great outfit can give me, even if it's only eye candy. Not quite sure if this week's is a great outfit, but I love the Nicholas Kirkwood ankle boots.
Thanks to all my readers who are putting up with the limited posts and not running off. I'll try to post at least once a week, even if it's just an enjoy weekends or beauty dayz post. You can also look forward to some ulzzang tutorials and kawaii accessories  this year as I have gotten caught up in the ulzzang wave. For those of you who don't know, I'll explain in later post. 

Have a great weekend. ^_^
