in a funk

what can i say, i’m in a funk!  this look certainly portrays my post new year’s lull:)  i found this dress and fell in love with it’s vibrant colors and pattern.  i’ve been a huge fan of long-sleeved dresses this season.  out shopping i found, these tights.  the cashier asked if i realized they were mint green (a lot of people assume they are skin tone, the package being a little misleading).  i was looking for a funky pair, so this off color was perfect.  happy, funky monday!

it’s beginning to feel a lot like winter.  cold, windy and a bit miserable.  luckily, faux fur jackets are with us for another season.  i couldn’t live without my collection of wild faux furs (more to come in future posts).  these make my winter blues a little bit better and a little more wild.  they are a good reason for a cold winter.  for this look, i kept my hair swept up in a bun as the jacket provides just enough flounce.  since i’m a huge fan of high boots, these gray pair are perfect and offsets the other colors a bit.  even though flat, they still appear dressy.  my only hope is – no one reports a bigfoot sighting.

this dress has transcended several years. and, every year in the fall i make an effort to wear this dress for a special occasion.  it’s perfect for a fall wedding or holiday party.  the gold detailing and cascading skirt is so romantic.  i thought this embellished headband would add some extra romance! while technically it’s still autumn (some days it feels more wintry), this dress has become part of my perfect fall attire.
