until you step into it

Sweaters like this are reasons I shop at thrift stores. I love to cozy up in big slouchy sweaters on gray dreary days like today. Check out this post for a tutorial on these lacy socks!

if this is love you gotta give me more

Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday. It's a whole day devoted to love (I think everyday should be like this...) and I think that's fantastic. In honor of holiday, I made a Valentine-y video to showcase today's outfit. Love to everyone!

what is her name that bears thy heart?

On this subzero day, I (some may say foolishly) ventured out for some pictures. I was not, however, completely bereft of mind, I did put on a scarf! I finished crocheting it this past week - my first endeavor into crocheting!

I stopped into the grocery store the other day for something that was definitely not lipstick. But, on my way to the registers, I passed the cosmetics and noticed that the brand of lipstick I wear was on sale for only $2 a tube (usually around $8)! I couldn't resist picking up a couple new shades - this one is Rum Raisin.

don't want to be anything where I don't know when to stop


Well, after the "great snow," I figured it would be a good day to pull out this giant furry hat. I've been waiting for the perfect time to wear it since discovering it while thrifting a few years ago (it was only $1!). It's kind of over-the-top, but, I guess, so is the snow (literally...there are some piles that tower over me!).

I find the perfect fitted sweaters in the little boy's section of Target. They are the perfect size and they are only $7. Also, the men's section is a good place to find equally slouchy sweaters, but I usually find ones just as good (or better) for less at secondhand stores.
