OOTD

Winter in the Northwest is FREEZING, but I just use this weather as an excuse to build my beanie and sock collection. Today I went on an adventure with my friend who happens to have amazing photography skills, and she snapped these photos of me.

Out of the loop

I've been so terrible at posting on here these past couple of weeks. I had finals and I had some visitors in town so I'm feeling pretty out of it. Can't wait to get back to blogging this break though.

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2012

As much as I love the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, I rarely watch it because I get impatient about watching them walk around the stage for hours. Here are some of my favorite looks and girls of the night.

Miranda Kerr backstage already looking perfect

Shanina Shaik

I have a bit of a girl crush on Cara Delevingne

Love, actually.

So while everyone is in the midst of studying for finals, I'm snuggled up in my bed being unproductive and procrastinating with Love Actually.

Does this ever happen in real life? This movie is perfect.

Keira Knightley...

Anywho, I'm keeping it short tonight. Goodnight.

Color my world

You'll learn pretty fast that a large portion of my wardrobe comes from Urban and Free People. I'm a stylist at Free People so I'm pretty much surrounded by their clothes at all times. And I get a sick discount.

My next purchase (Free People, $78)

Although these are competition (Free People, $78)

My personal collection of colored and patterned denim
From top: Free People, swooped for $17
Free People, Urban, Urban, Free People, Urban, Levi's.
I see a little bit of a trend.

Hi, Low

My first post is about the high-low phenomenon.  Technically, high-low hems have been around since the Victorian era (think 1870s) when evening gowns were cut shorter in the front and longer in the back, but today's fashion is on a different level.  There are even high-low hems for tops.  I honestly hope this trend sticks around for awhile; I love mini skirts but a longer hem adds an edginess and class at the same time.  High-lows are the best of both worlds.  Here are some of my favorite looks, as well as a couple of my own pieces.

Supermodel Miranda Kerr in an Eva Brazzi evening dress

Exclusively on Nasty Gal

The "Abbey" skirt by UNIF. $60 on Urban and UNIF

Selena Gomez in ASOS

Reverse high-low?  This tank showcases high-waisted bottoms... 

My favorite high-low skirt - Akira Chicago Fall 2011.  This phone picture doesn't do it justice

And the newest addition to my collection: By Kimchi Blue.  Copped this for less than $20

Rookie


Hi everyone.  My name is Katy.  Lover of family, friends, music, fashion, food, art, books, culture, photography, travel, and so much more.  I hate when people lie and cheat, and when they feel the need to hide their individuality.

My life is one big fat theatrical show, even though on some days I’m backstage.  Either way, I made this blog to share my interests with anyone and everyone who cares to read about them.  Or not.  I don’t really care.
