Cabin Fever

(google images)

A bit of inspiration for you all. Sometimes when I need inspiration I look to home decor. Its an art form I have so much respect for (but no talent!) I love going through bedding magazines and watching home design tv shows. You have to have an extremely good understanding of color and shapes to put a room together successfully- but the same goes for clothing too!




(Lace Top: Forever 21, Jacket: Forever 21, Skirt: New York and Co., Tights: Anthropologie, Overcoat: Old Navy)

I got these tights for Christmas (I wish I had a better picture of them!) and after looking at my inspiration pictures I had to put them on- and the rest of my outfit followed in accordance. These pictures don't show my actual outfit too well, but it was just too cold to take my coat off! The weather has been awful- in fact, I'm out of school all week. And that wouldn't be so terrible if I hadn't spent the past four days stuck in my house! My mom and I were starting to loose our minds so we managed to fight the snow and go thrifting today. I picked up some sweaters that I'm pretty excited about!



I'm very new to thrifting, but I can feel a strong addiction taking over already! If you have any tips or know good places to go, let me know!

Love that first picture. The black chandelier just gives it a nice touch. :) Love your tights they are super cute and we love thrifting! Goodwill is always a great place to thrift and also just google online for local thrift stores that are close to where you live. Hope thats helps! :)

About your lace inspiration I know it. Cloth on your pic is national craft of my town Yelets (Russia). You gave me idea to make pics of more laces.

WHAT!?! you're new to thrifting!? lol. its okay though, you will definitely become addicted and find yourself going to the thrift store before anywhere else. Over the years while shopping at various thrift stores I notice that they tend to put out things that are trending. (you know there is nothing new under the sun!) Try Value Village and Unique, they also have 25% off on mondays and thrusdays!

yessir I know my stuff!! Ask me for tips anytime!

I love looking through home decor magazines for inspiration as well, though I too lack the ability to organize/decorate.

Anyhow, lovely outfit, and I can't wait to see what else is next on your blog! :)
