black velvet bustier: urban outfitters bargain basement
sash belt: american apparel
jumper pant: american apparel
black lace up platforms: urban outfitters bargain basement

i was so excited yesterday when i found that bustier for $10 at urban outfitters!  it's kind of difficult to get on and off, but i don't care, i love it.   leonard is here and last night we had a date in cambridge after i got off work and then we got to sleep in this morning and go to brunch together and hang out all day in bed.  the perfect sunday.  lets talk about how i feel like this year i am going to be very adult and very good.  now all i have to do is quit smoking.  how do i quit smoking though, i can't, its too harddddddddd.  i guess i could start by buying the nicotine patch. 

Ladies dresses in realistic sizes, for every type of woman.

I'll definitely let you know how the Chanel biography is! It's pretty thick so I'm guessing it'll take me ages to get through.
Your hair looks lovely up like that!

pennycones said...

You look amazing!!

The bustier is truly fantastic and what a bargain. Well done you :)

Suzy said...

I was more orally fixated than anything, regarding the smokes, so I have no advice regarding the nicotine addiction aspect, but it helps to make sure no one is smoking around you for at least a month. IT SUCKS, but that was the only way I could and now I am so glad I did because I look back at photos and I was all gray, in spirit and complexion, compared to now.

Just think, in a year you can be as grossed out as I am now every time someone lights up. I cringe every time my bff in AZ is on the phone and I can hear her inhaling that junk.

stephanie renee said...

such an amazing outfit and you look so pretty, i might have to get those pants! i am trying to be an adult this year too and quit smoking, but i agree, why does it have to be so hard??

Brittany said...

I am completely in love with this outfit. I feel like it's a modern-day Audrey Hepburn outfit.. so classy. You look like a model!

Caitlin said...

You look so beautiful and cute and HAPPY!

I wish you all the luck in the world to quit smoking! My dad used to smoke before I was born. I guess he just decided to quit one day, and he did. He hasn't touched a cigarette since!

AND what a beautiful Sunday you must have had. I wish my bf would spend days like that with me.

Anonymous said...

Quitting smoking seriously sucks, but it's so worth it.

I decided to quit when I saw my uncles (twins) this past summer. They were standing next to each other and the one who smokes looked 10 years older than the one who doesn't. He had way more wrinkles and his skin looked gray.

The nicotine gum was a life saver for the first 3 months. Now whenever I crave a cigarette I think about how awful they make you smell. You don't realize when you're smoking because you're used to it, but people who smoke smell like an ashtray pretty much all the time. You're too cute to smell bad. Good luck!

anna bu said...

Orchid Grey said...

amazing and beautiful outfit, that bargain basement hold so many treasures! I love the proportions of the pants and top, very pretty! beautiful photos of you too. this may sound weird but I really like your eyebrows...

Molly said...

I am quite enamored with those shoes. they could go with anything. are they from urban?

Clockwatcher said...

Very nice outfit! It looks good on you. I love the bow belt. Have a good day! It is freezing here in NYC.

fraisedesbois said...

I agree with what anonymous said. It would be a pity to see your beauty go away because of the cigarette. I understand that it must not be easy to quit but I admire your willingness to give it a try. You can do it. Courage.:0)
I am not a smoker but I saw one of my art teacher once coughing like a rooster; it was at a point of no return. Not a pretty cough.
To me cigarettes only look cool in Hollywood movies, like Marlene Dietrich holding one.

raita 2 said...

wow, i love our outfit!

heart charlie said...

oh my god, oh my god, oh my god!! These photos are gorgeous!!!!! I am wildly envious of your gorgeous-ness (haha, is that a word?) Great outfit, but I am especially in love with your little hair do, the bangs are perfectly soft and sexy!

Daisy said...

Oh wow ! You look stunning!
Good luck with the smoking !

Engra said...

beautiful outfit!

Celine said...

you could try one of those electronic cigarettes- then you'd only be ingesting the nicotine vapor and not all the extra chemicals. and you can smoke inside without stinking up your place! it's every smokers fantasy..

kate maggie said...

Lauren said...

anna elsa said...
