gleeter!

serious question time, but what girl doesn't love gleeter?! glitter = cheery buckets of glee. and throw in some rhinestones/gems and i am in bedazzled heaven. for serious. i love that all these designer shoe makers are practically Lisa Franking out their sky-high pumps. L.O.V.E.! following are some of my favorite pairs, within reasonable price:

but since i'm on a serious budget here, i've decided to DIY my very own pair of pumps. thanks to the help of MoreThanJazzz and long scrolls through Google images/tutorials, i have successfully created new shoe eye candy! will post the results some time over the weekend, but for now i can say they look a bit similar to these beauts (but in a darker gold with more blush tones):

fresh cuts

new haircut post, bringing the side swept bangs back:


pre-haircut. longest locks i've probably ever had. in for a much needed taming trim!
(p.s. - enjoy my dbag kissyface, hahah)



post-haircut from Acote salon on Newbury street.

i had to play with my bangs for a while for them to sit the way i wanted (these pics aren't the best, but i tried!). other than that, i got my layers back and my hair dresser did a fabulous job. highly recommend.

Since this was a really simple outfit day, I decided to focus on my main accessory: my Chanel specs!



I've had these prescription glasses for maybe 2 years now (but been blind since nearly forever), and these big black frames have yet to go out of style. For me, it's the combo of geek chic mixed with a wider spectrum of which to see from - I have smaller/narrower purple Lacoste prescription glasses, but they just don't cover as much ground due to the smaller lenses.

What's your favorite accessory? Do you tend to wear bigger glasses/sunglasses or stick with the small and simple?

outfit post #2:


pink geometric print ruffle dress & gold/pearl necklace - F21
grey cardigan - H&M
Alfani tan boots - Macy's


and a closeup of my grey faux crocodile print tote - ASOS

i can't wait to wear more COLOR once the spring is actually here. not that there's a rule that doesn't allow colors in the winter, but i justcan't help leaning more towards blacks and greys while battling through these cold days.

any items stored up in your closets that you can't wait to break out once sunny spring hits?!
