I love when literature and fashion make friends; for example, this blouse from Modcloth named after the main character in Edith Wharton’s The House of Mirth–the “Lily Bart Blouse.” I read The House of Mirth in high school, but I think I’m definitely due for a re-read. In the meantime, I’ll wear pretty things:
Love these boots so much! Beware of dancing, however. Pointy toes are v. sharp.

As you can probably expect, I got plenty of clothes, shoes, jewelry, and books for Christmas. Not too shabby:
I love the print on this skater skirt, and the slight steampunk vibe of the statement necklace.
Gilmore Girls on DVD, and some great books I’ve been salivating for: The Lowland, The Valkyries, The Alchemist, Neverwhere, Bellman & Black, and The Moonstone. January will be a month filled with great reads, so stay tuned!
And the coat from Modcloth I was waxing poetic about just a few short weeks ago…
Haul ^ I’m ready for a long, cold winter filled with reading by the fire, plenty of scarves and boots, and some great hot chocolate!
I love the bow detail on the back of this blazer, and I’m obsessed with these shoes! I got them half off from a seller on Poshmark. It was really bright out today, so my apologies for the bright images!

I can’t get enough of floral print. It’s the unashamed girly-girl in me who positively squeals over a good floral print on virtually anything, but mostly on shoes. A while ago I saw these on the Internet:
by Jeffrey Campbell at Solestruck.
but they were sold out. Now I would revisit these beauties from time to time and sigh in exasperation and feel the pangs of unfulfilled love and know that there was a shoe-shaped hole in my heart (actually, two holes) that would never be filled. But then I remembered: I like DIY, and I never let anything go.
The charm of these boots is the shape of the heel and the height of the shaft. I scurried around the Internet for a while and found these on 6PM.com. I got the $79 shoes in Cognac for a measly $29 due to a serendipitous sale and an additional 10% off coupon.
For the fabric, I found a floral tapestry with a black backdrop that I may like even better than the blue/cream combination pictured above, because the dark color will work well in winter paired with dark tights. The original pair is more of a spring boot, but it’s winter now and my feet are cold (and thoroughly un-floral).
I can’t wait to put them together. Pictures of the process to come.
And yes, I am obsessed. Let’s move on.
