Anytime I wear a pair of acid wash jeans I am reminded of my faux-emo phase when I spent far too much time and money in Hot Topic. It was rough, but now I've moved on (kinda). I just really needed to put my black Topshop Joni jeans to rest because I literally wore them to shreds. I love Topshop's Joni jeans so much I've repurchased them multiple times and in different washes including the one I'm wearing today. Jeans are one of the two things I will really spend money on. The other would have to be a good leather jacket. Mine is from Zara and I've gotten so much wear out of it. As for this plaid poncho/shawl/blanket/scarf/whatever, I snagged it during the Urban Outfitters sale (but it's not on sale online?). But let's be real...if you actually buy anything for retail price at that store you need to reevaluate your decisions.

Confession: I'm a Fake

There are plenty of fake things in my life. My close friends might jokingly say my personality is of those on the list, but I digress. The latest additions, however, have been faux fur pieces and this handbag. Starting with this leopard coat, I ordered this beauty back in November and it arrived right after I left for California. But I'm happy I wasn't able to bring it home because it's been keeping me warm during these more mild Chicago winter days. It fits a bit oversized which is nice for those days when I will need to layer a bit more. I'm all for this faux fur trend because I love the way it can accent or become the center of an outfit, especially during the school week when I tend to stick to the drab sweater and jeans combo. As for the handbag, while I was at home I left my good ol' Alexander Wang Rockie and decided I needed to purchase a bag that would be okay with getting a little beat up on the crowded L trains. My bag is an obvious imitation of the super popular Celiné nano. I guess I bought this bag as my way of exercising the law of Attraction. Hopefully one day it will be replaced on my shoulder with the actual thing or I'll just get over the hype...whichever one comes first.

Forever 21 Coat Zara Turtleneck Forever 21 Jeans (similar
Happy belated new year! I hope you all had an great weekend. I spent New Year's weekend in Vegas which isn't that eventful when you're not 21, but still it was fun. I thought I'd make this quick post because I'm actually wearing a color besides black...well it's gray! I love this blurred plaid jacket from Forever 21 because it reminded me of a Ralph Lauren jacket Alexa Chung modeled recently. Because to the A-line cut, you can layer underneath and it doesn't look too bulky. This jacket is from Forever 21's new Premium collection, which is pretty good quality and overall I think Forever 21 has really stepped up its game since the popularity of other, smaller online boutiques.
