New Year's Eve

I cant believe its almost 2010! Well, sequins and sparkles are all the rage for parties, so I chose this one sided silver sequins mini. You know whats great about having an older sister? You get to wear her designer stuff! She got these gorgeous Chanel pumps last year at Neiman Marcus. Theyre white and glossy but have glitter and the CC logo all over. I wore navy nail polish to add some color. Too bad Im just staying home tonight to watch the ball drop with my family!

I bought this military jacket last year, but the trends still in. I paired it with the cross body bag and a cute floral. The Doc Martins add to the whole military style, while the floral dress makes it girly. I get bored really easily, so I changed up my bangs. My sister said I look like a villain from an action movie. Oh well!

Recession Denim

When I first heard about Recession Denim I thought, "Oh it must be super cheap." But these jeans range from $115-135. I would rather buy some Seven, True Religion, J Brand, or Citizens of Humanity jeans. Why would someone create a recession friendly denim brand and sell the jeans for that much? Theyre pretty basic and wearable, but it just doesnt make sense to me.

P.S. Rock and Republic created a recession collection, not extremely cheap though.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2010 RTW

I'm a big Marc Jacobs fan. I love all his work. Especially Marc by Marc Jacobs. Its so fun and young. I love all the bright colors and crazy prints. Each outfit can be worn as shown or with simpler pieces to decrease the craziness. I see girls wearing bows in their hair all the time, but I like how these are bigger bows worn like headbands. I love the romper and harem pants he has in this collection. Cross body bags are still going to be in style for the spring and probably summer as well. Shoulder pads are also translating to next year. Im also seeing a lot of "poofy" pleated shorts. Ones connected to rompers as well as separate. This was one of my favorite spring fashion shows.

So my mom has this rule for Christmas, that no one can open presents without getting dressed up. Here I wore an empire waist sparkly H&M dress with tights and my lovely Jeffrey Campbells (I wear them so much, but theyre so light and comfy!). Christmas is hands down my favorite holiday. My best presents were my Treesje Marley handbag, Coastal Scents 88 eyeshadow palette, and this beautiful Betsey Johnson brown fur coat. Im seriously in love with it. Ill put pictures up another day.

House of Harlow 1960

Nicole Richie's House of Harlow 1960 is very vintage, organic, and unique. She has some signature pieces that are all her own, like:

I love these different shapes. Some of express' jewelry looks a tad similar...

Sheer coincidence? I dont think so. But Harlow is pretty expensive, so Nicole Richie has a few pieces at bebe like this one:

love the Rodarte Target line. Its super fashion forward and cheap! The designers (Kate and Laura Mulleavy) made beautiful pieces and used some tulle accents. Every piece was constructed so well and theyre all so fab! The collection hit stores yesterday.

(The mustard colored dress is my absolute fave!)

I love Balenciaga's giant part time black with silver hardware bag. Ive wanted it forever. This ones my sister's though. I love pinstripe shirts and this one from Urban Outfitters is really soft and comfortable. Oh and fringe necklaces are hot!

Christmas is only 5 days away, I cant wait! :)
