What is that, velvet?

What is that, velvet?

Yup. Purple velvet. It’s so soft! We all know that I’m the queen of the sale. When I saw the blazer and the boots both reduced with an extra 40% off they simply had to become mine. No questions. I had been coveting these on the Free People site since the beginning of the season and I waited and waited until I got such an amazing deal I couldn’t possibly pass it up. Embracing the velvet trend and the fringe trend and the over-the-knee boot trend in one outfit? Decadent!

That stands for Oh My, Jeans! It’s not often that I go “out” in jeans. I usually reserve them for daytime weekend wear. This Saturday, however, that changed. I finally found a pair of real blue jeans with a super fit and they are so comfortable and soft. Usually the normal jeans aren’t on sale. These ones are Joe’s and they were in fact on sale at Nordstrom this weekend. Mine! I had to hit the mall with all the amazing sales going on. I got this top too at Neiman Marcus on crazy sale. I’ve become a fan of Clover Canyon which is artsy and flowy and fun — right up my alley. We were enjoying a scotch before going out for supper and of course Lubi couldn’t resist getting in on the action. He’s just too cute to resist!

I Surrender

So I’ve tried so hard to take pictures outside of my house, but guess what? It’s just too hard in the winter. Thus… welcome to my living room. I now realize how badly the walls need to be painted. We’ll get to it eventually. Anyway, I can’t possible put on my supper outfit while it’s still light outside. I would have to be dressed and have my makeup done by five in the afternoon. That’s just ridiculous! I’d be a mess by the time I arrived at the restaurant at eight or half past. It didn’t make sense to put on anything too fancy as we were in the middle of a snowstorm. We were going to one of our favourite French Bistros. It’s cozy and offers realistic French fare and the owner is a great guy. We ventured out since the owner sent an email saying that if there was less than 6 inches of snow he would buy everyone a glass of house wine. Awesome! I was dying for one of these “fuzzy” sweaters that are all over the place now, but being that I’m so hot all of the time there was no way I could buy a pullover. This one captured the trend, but had an easy off option. Perfect. Lubi also joined me for the occasion though I didn’t allow him to have a Scotch with us. He’s a chilly little Chihuahua who is wearing an adorable little Martha Stewart sweater.
