it's been forever since i've done an outfit post! i just got these twinkling tights in pewter from american apparel and i love them and totally reccomend them to all of you.  they come in all kinds of pretty colors and they shimmer and glow in the light.  plus here im wearing them over black leggings which really brings out the color and helps to beat the cold.  and i guess tomorrow night is new years eve.  i'm not all that excited because i've never really had a good new years, and this year looks like it'll be more of the same.  leonard will be in new york working and i have to work on friday morning so i'll get no kisses at midnight.  but with this weather and how busy i've been recently i don't think it'll be too much of a bummer.  i would be happy to spend the night watching the ball drop on tv from the couch with a couple beers.  i am, however, very excited for 2010!  i've got a good feeling about it and i am going to try really hard to stick with my resolution to start saving money and to get myself out of debt.

Great leggings! I've been really into the shimmery ones as well but have yet to purchase any.. do you recommend the American Apparel ones? I'm a big fan of your blog by the way, you have such unique style and your photos are always amazing!

Love your coat and amazed most of your outfit is thrifted. My resolution for 2010 is only shop thrift; we'll see how long that lasts... Looks great. Annie.

WOW! I love your outfit. I love the shimmering tights. The hooded jacket is nice. I agree this New Year can only bring good things. You have a good outlook on life; good things will happen to you. Cheers.

my nye is looking to be the most tame in years, a single bottle of champagne, a 16 year old sister and, i imagine, a lot of lady gaga.

You're looking great despite the cold! I hate the cold too, I shivered for ages the night when the wind was rattling the trees like crazy. I love the pretty flowers in your hair!

Tieka, Selective Potential said...

I really really love this look. Those tights look great on you.. and I'm loving your white faux fur jacket! Stunning.

I agree with you about New Year's. I've never really had a spectacular New Years either! But I do look forward to the actual new year.. 2010. I'm excited to continue reading and good luck on your resolution! That's one of mine too. Debt is a pain!

I'm going to email you back soon too, by the way! Probably tomorrow morning. <3

I hope you're right with the feelings about 2010! NYE is boooring, don't even know what I'm gonna wear.

Those little flowers in your hair are terribly sweet and that is the best sweater vest I've ever seen. I'm completely smitten. Happy low key new year's eve!
