What I wore 12.29.11

This year I only made one Black Friday purchase and I made it online. I splurged and treated myself to the Mishka "Keep Watch" sweater I'd been eyeing for months. Merry Christmas to me! It's the perfect weight for layering and I've been living in it since it shipped. This is how I wear it:

What I wore: Special Zootini Edition!

This what I wore post is going to stray a little from the standard format. I was recently asked by some of the hosts of this years Zootini party to do an outfit post describing what I would wear to the event.

For those of you who aren't familiar with it, Zootini is an annual party held at the St. Louis Zoo. This year it will be a costume party with an animal theme. The suggested attire is "hip with an animal flare." I might have gotten a little carried away while I was picking out my items *cough*Alexander McQueen bag *cough*, but I think you'll get the general idea, and all of the items would be easy to swap out with more moderately priced selections or items from your own closet. I had so much fun putting these together! This is what I would wear:

 

Fox

 


Rachel Antonoff pleated dress, $245
8000 Nerves bow blouse, $82
Falke cable knit socks, $30
Naughty Monkey tan boots, $85
Yellow jewelry, $18
Gold plated jewelry, £17
River Island fake fur hat, £18

 

 

Peacock

 


Button dress, $78
Anna Sui microfiber tight, $16
Jeffrey Campbell sparkly heels, $125
Peacock feather jewelry, $5.99
Hair clip accessory, $12

 

 

Leopard

 


Betsey Johnson strapless cocktail dress, $398
H m jacket, £30
French Connection leather shoes, £115
Alexander McQueen animal print clutch, £845
Kate Spade short necklace, $78

Zootini guests will be treated to live music, a costume contest and a raffle with some great prizes!  This event is open to the public so you don't need to be a zoo member to get in on the action. Advance tickets are available for purchase here. (Guests must be 21 or older - this is a cocktail party.)

Wait! Are you ready for the best news? My readers will receive 2 free drink tickets if they purchase their admission tickets today and enter in the promotional code: RAWR! Awesome right?!? Did you have a favorite look? If so, let me know in the comments!

We had a beautiful indian summer day when I went apple picking at Eckerts. This is what I wore:

As soon as Elsie, from A Beautiful Mess, released her fall lookbook I knew I needed this dress. It's called the Sewing Kit dress and I absolutely love it! The print is adorable, but I think the collar is my favorite feature.

I had a super busy weekend and decided to take a break this afternoon and watch Charade, a 1960's who done it film staring Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant & Walter Matthau. I really love a good Hepburn melt down. She is always over dramatic, dropping her jaw, closing her eyes and throwing her head back while screaming. I love it! Tonight I'm going to catch up on some sewing and hopefully line up a few more blog posts. Hope you had a great weekend!

What I wore 8.19.11

Last Sunday I woke up, went outside and breathed the first crisp breath of air signaling the coming of fall. It's not here yet, it's actually pretty muggy right now, but it's coming. And for now, that's enough.

I met my cousin for a breakfast of macaron's and mocha's and this is what I wore:

What I wore 8.1.11

I'm kicking off my birthday month with a Special edition what I wore! Over the weekend I attended a USO Benefit thrown by the ARRG Jeerleaders. It was set up like a variety show from the forties and featured: magicians, comedians, live music, hoop dancers, some of the most incredible tap dancers I've ever seen and burlesque. It was a blast!

I took the opportunity to wear my new Stop Staring dress. It was also the first public apperance of the black vintage purse I bought a few months back.

Hair by my cousin Annie. We'd never tried victory rolls before. Not for the faint of heart. I liked them and would like to try them again, but there were two of us and it took an hour! Pretty pathetic, but a nice change from my standard "just keep adding bobby pins until it stays out of your eyes."

Stay tuned for the rest of the celebration! I have cocktail recipes, tours of some of my favorite places and new project ideas all lined up to share. I might even throw in a giveaway - who knows?!?

(Okay - there's totally going to be a giveaway.)

What I wore 6.6.11

The temperature has been rising the past two weeks resulting in lots of breezy skirts and light weight dresses. I'm hoping for some rain soon. My garden looks pitiful.

I actually wore this last week, but I'm making serious progress on processing all those photos! It's a work day and this is a typical work outfit so I think it fits. This is what I wore.

We went to a private Mardi Gras party today just off of the parade route. We missed the parade completely but met up with a lot of friends. Good times! This is what I wore:

What I wore 2.24.11

I ordered some new spring dresses and they arrived earlier this week. The weather is not exactly screaming spring (it is actually freezing and started raining almost immediately after these were taken), but I couldn't wait to wear one. You may remember the coach tour dress from an earlier post. I winterized the outfit a bit with some tights and a cropped sweater. Love it!

My Mom and my friend Val are in town for a few days. We're staying cozy inside crafting and baking cookies. We're also watching a Parks & Recreation marathon. Chris Pratt is my favorite!
