Fashion from a highschooler's perspective. That is all.

I'm getting tired of my scarves now. I need more colours and styles, and buying scarves always brings such a thrill. Even more than clothes do (!!!).
Gap has these genius cable scarves that
are absolutely perfect.
I adore Gap scarves for some odd reason.
These come in pretty much all the colours
of the rainbow plus a few more.
Ahhh, cashmere. If you're willing to
spend a bit more money go high-end.
I can't say I like the outfit though. Gloves, scarf,
and a matching hat isn't exactly my idea of hip.
But again it might just be me.
This is the Neiman Marcus Red Cherry scarf.
I think they should rename it to Cheery,
because that's a lot more accurate to
what I think when I look at this.
I've been looking for a scarf this exact
colour and style. So sad there isn't a
Neiman Marcus near me. Sigh.
But I'm not giving up, yet. There's still a few days left of the sales.
I think every single person in this world
should own a silk scarf.
Because honestly, who can resist?
This way of wearing the scarf is so classic,
I really can't wait until I can wear mine like this.
And isn't the Pucci print absolutely

1) Black, long sleeved sweater-style shirt. Why I can't seem to find one anywhere under 30$ is quite a mystery.
2) Bottle of shampoo, apple scented.
3) New scent. My old is getting tired. I'm leaning towards one with fruity notes.
4) Flat-front trouser pants. Possibly in a grey or black wool.
5) Red knitted scarf. Without a fringe, please.
6) Silk skinny scarf. I saw them at Gap, but now they're gone. I am as completely mad as you are for not buying them then.
7) A watch. I've been living as long as it is without one.
8) Pumps. My feet need some solid comfort after all the stilettos.
9) A pair of boots that are 'of the moment'
10) Cashmere sweater...

Gap got some new stock... and with it some V-neck shirts. This color paired with a cream one would look perfect. I like how it's versatile; you can wear it with a cami, layer it, by itself.. whatever.
One of you pointed out American Apparel. I never knew there was such a place. It's pretty good, it's great for basics in good quality, but lacking in trends.
But for the purpose of this post, it's great. The tees not too flattering on the model, but it's apparently really great for layering.
If you're looking for really cheap stuff, where else but target? I love the colour style and versatility. Great place, target is, indeed.

Stirrup pants are only meant to be worn as soccer socks. Do not, for whatever reason, wear them in a regular daily outfit. Foot less leggings, sure. Just not stirrups.

What I've found out:
Dresses, but with jackets/shrugs always
Clutches are a must. Especially large, square embellished ones.
Don't do matchy-matchy. Black dress should not equal black shoes.
My favourite outfit so far. I like how it seems so tossed-on-at-the last moment, but still polished.
Just go to any cheap trend-following shoe/clothing store. Intuition, for example. What's filling up their shelves but cowboy boots?
Even my fashion-oblivious friend eventually noticed all the girls in town running around in western boots. And when anyone fashion-oblivious notices a trend, you know the trend's over.
Example: Do not wear the shoe on the right, or anything resembling it. Noone wants to look like Jessica Simpson.

He says he felt the need to bring back the aura of Coco Chanel back to the way people dress. She had a really immaculate, clean, classy, and of course, fashionably tasteful sense of style. Lagerfield wants to bring fashion back to how it was in the days of Coco.
What he means, is, that clean, classic grooming is back. And so much the better for us. It's holiday season, and what better way to show off our style with tasteful pieces?
And of course, what designer does classy better than Chanel?
Love the red bag. I can imagine the bag with a black pencil skirt and tweed blazer. The shoes are nice, but a bit too retro to match the bag.
Marc Jacobs does a pretty good job with handbags. I love the his quilted purses. For me, quilted leather bags mean understated glam.
Classic style tips
Pencil skirts, A-lines, blazers, pea coats, wraps
Wool, tweed, patent leather, linen, cotton
Good tailoring, make sure it fits, even to the tiniest detail
Quality. Good quality usually shows it
Really use your judgement. Be hard on yourself. If you think something is inappropriate, then don't wear it.

So cute. Suede, wrap around, calf length. It's beautiful, and it's definitely in my price range at urban outfitters. But the orange is throwing me off. Do they have different colours? Actually, the orange is ugly, and the grey socks don't help. Someone please let me help the poor stylists at UO.

I absolutely need the Lauren Merkin Eve clutch. Preferably more than one. They're gorgeous, practical, and come in absolutely every shade of the rainbow.
I have my eye on the snakeskin one. Starting 2006, I've decided to start my collection of Lauren Merkin clutches. Too bad the blog wont let me upload any pictures, or you could have all admired the beauty of the bags.

I plan to wear it with a denim mini, warm patterned tights, and some boots. It's a 80s workout sort of vibe, but minus the leg warmers. I plan to add a black blazer to make it a bit more 21th century and, well, cooler. Leg warmers are so not hot.
I have a sweater cardigan/coat that I have absolutely no idea what to do with it. You see, the sweater doesn't have buttons on it, so it's impossible to close. The answer? A belt. I like this belt because it'll go well with the colour of the sweater, jade green. But anything will go.
I think some tan knee-high suede boots and light wash denim will go well with the rest. Maybe a black hat...
Some other ideas...
A cami, the sweater, and a cord blazer on top.
Cuffed jeans, argyle socks, and a beige sweater dress.
