Really impressed with the interior design job Jessica Biel did with this space. It makes me want to completely rethink my space and start with rich black and whites with metallic accents (gotta love metallics). I also have to steal the table idea, creating a coffee table by stacking coffee table books underneath a massive tabletop. See more details on full project here and can we just take a minute to talk about her shoes?
For the most part, I'm gold. I think I only own 3 silver earrings and maybe 2 silver necklaces. I love me some yellow gold or rather, some yellow gold plaited, gold sprayed, under $10 a piece faux gold jewelry. I have no shame to proclaim most of my daily jewelry is the fake stuff from any mall store that would have me. I have a few special pieces kept far and away from the masses.
But silver has been starting to creep up on me. Especially in shoes and bags. And now, I'm even eyeing watches, bracelets and rings in that color. It's funny to me now, but I had this really deep seated belief that silver did not work on my complexion. I got that from the same place I got the other one - thinking that I was too dark skinned to wear red lipstick... Sigh. So silly.
I first saw this jacket several weeks ago. I went up to it, looked at it, thought- hmm this is interesting and then walked away. The second time, I did the same, walked up to it, was confused by the fabric or whatever it was made of and I convinced myself, there was no way I would wear it.
Then I realized I was still somewhat interested in it and that I should at the very least try it on and see. You know, just see. And of course, I couldn't find the darn thing. It was sold out online and not in any H&M I went to. Now, I was mildly obsessed, because now I really wanted to try it on. I didn't even think I wanted it that bad. So I decided to check Ebay. There it was, just one, in my size but $10 more than in the store. I wasn't going to pay full price in the store and I sure as heck wasn't paying $10 more than retail price for it. So, I told myself, it's not that serious and I was done and would forget it.
And then I'm killing time while waiting for someone and hop into an H&M store and what's back in store but this crazy little thing. Finally, if nothing else, I'm trying it on. So I did and 5 minutes later, after using my 50% off coupon, it was going home with me.
It's pink. It's PINK. And it's FLUFFY and I could picture the hubby just shaking his head at me. But me Likey. Yup, this one was a little out of my comfort zone but did I mention, it's really warm and comfy too.
Have you bought anything that you were a little hesitant about wearing,
I've been on a never-ending search for some Over the Knee boots. It's always something, too Large for my calves, not long enough, not comfortable enough, too high, too expensive. The closest I have come so far to buying a pair would be the Marc Fishers, on the far left, bottom row. My cousin and I spent an afternoon in Macy's and I can't tell you how many people were checking those boots out. I think my cousin finally grabbed a pair during Black Friday sales. I really liked them and they fit well if you have skinny calves like I do (I usually go for a pair with a 12.5" - 13.5" circumference).
I'm just really indecisive when it comes to boots. So I'll keep thinking and keep that as a backup. I just need to be absolutely positively sure. Above are some other options I think are cute, many on Sale.
