Faux Chanel


Hello! Today is my last day of freedom before heading back to school. Winter break has been a lot of fun and I have been able to get a lot done. My break was filled with scholarship applications, shifts at Justice and lots and lots of blogging. Over winter break, I even managed to get featured on Glamour Magazine's website! How crazy is that? You can read the full article HERE.

Anyway, today I chose to don a slightly edgy but quirky look. I started my look off with this pair of BDG denim that I received for Christmas. BDG denim is definitely my favorite denim. One reason why I like them so much is because there is no design on the back pocket. Call me weird but I don't like designs on the back pockets of jeans; there is something about them that I just find unappealing. This pair of jeans has a very eclectic, reptile skin print on it. How quirky!

I paired the jeans with this versatile, denim button down. I threw on a faux leather jacket on top of the button down for extra warmth and an extra oomph of edge. Before I left my house, I grabbed this faux Chanel DIY paper bag. I just cannot get over how much I adore this bag. It's humorous and versatile at the same time- what's not to love? Combat boots, berry colored lipstick, white heart sunglasses and vintage earrings completed the look.

And you cannot tell from the photos but I painted my nails this morning with the coolest design. All of my fingernails are painted with Revlon's "black lingerie" nail polish but on the thumb of each hand, I painted a white, interlocking "CC" which represents Chanel (just like my bag).

Besides being featured on Glamour Magazine's website over winter break, I was spotlighted on Fashion Treatment (HERE). I also guest blogged about myself on Hanna Marie Lei. If you want to get to know me better, hop on over to the article HERE.

I hope that you all enjoyed you winter break and the start of 2013!
