My Fashion Christmas Gifts
I already showed you my beauty Christmas gifts, so now I thought I'd share my fashion items.
I've always been a fan of the Chanel quilted handbag look. I affectionately call this bag my "faux Chanel." The strap slides through the holes like a real Chanel would. It is a dark charcoal gray color. I know I'm trying to get a brown or navy bag, but this one is so cute! I picked it out at a boutique in California called Kaitlyn. I always have to make a visit there when I'm in California.
I went a little sequin crazy this year. I got this Target sequin tank in black and a cream color (they were sequins I used on my holiday nails!). Who isn't a fan of sequins? I really want to try to use these for a day look, not just evening.
I also got this sequin tank top from Ann Taylor Loft. I tried to get a shot of the pattern. I want to wear this shirt for New Year's Eve but if there is snow on the ground, I'm going to have to layer up!
I adore this Ann Taylor Loft sweater with sequin shoulders. It's soft and isn't too conservative for me. It makes a statement, which I'm always down for.
Continuing on the shiny theme, I got this Pier 1 scarf. It is WAY more shiny in person. It is pretty thin so I'm not sure exactly how I would wear it. I hardly wear scarves as 'decorative pieces.' Any suggestions?
Following in the metallic theme is this t-shirt from Kohl's. It has a gold metallic sheen to it and is very soft. It has a looser fit so it would go great with some jeggings.
Moving away from the shiny things we have this Ann Taylor Loft (again, I know!) blouse. I really liked this blouse because it has an exposed zipper in the back and a pocket in the front. It makes it less "girlie" to me. If something is pink, it has to have some edge to it in order for me to consider it.
Case in point, this Ramones shirt. This is more of Kim's typical style (read: tomboy). Now I can can be like my dad (lol!).
Moving into the warm category we have these wool leggings from Target. These are definitely going to be essential in the winter especially after the enormous blizzard that I missed *tear*!
This Anthropologie sweater is so precious! It's a sweater like material but in a blazer shape. Love! I just want to curl up in it.
As you may know (if you follow me on Twitter), I've been dying for a faux fur vest. Well "Santa" brought me two this year, both from Arden B surprisingly. This brown one is more of what I was looking for. However, it is a little tight on the chest area so I was thinking I may just end up belting it.
BUT this vest goes to show "Don't judge it until you try it on." As I've mentioned, I'm not a fan of pink. I thought this vest looked like an ugly shag carpet when I first opened it. Then I put it on. I actually love it! It has one clasp in the middle, which I like. The brown one has a few all up the front. It actually isn't that pink, it is more of a beige color (as you can see by the bathroom tile in the picture). It's a fun sweater that I would have never thought I would be a fan of. I don't care how many times my siblings make Chewbacca noises at me (lol!)... I like it!
