Holiday Wishlist

I am always excited once Thanksgiving is over because then its truly shopping season! While shopping for others is most of the fun, I still like to put together a little wishlist and look forward to getting presents. Yes I know this is totally motivated by self-interest and capitalism, but I bet you'd be lying if you said you didn't do this yourself!

Here is a list of all the wonderful things I have on my holiday wishlist:

Thelma, Jeffrey Campbell

Meow Earmuffs, Francesca's Collection

So that's pretty much everything I am lusting for right now. What's on your holiday wishlist?

As promised, here are photos of the outfit I wore yesterday.

I just scored this 1978 vintage Garfield tee last week in San Francisco's Mission District. It says "No Pain, No Gain." I figured it was perfect to wear on Thanksgiving a.ka. America's biggest food day of the year.

I wanted to stay comfy, so I mixed the top with a pair of leggings and a vintage jean jacket. I threw my faux fur stole on top for warmth and finished everything off with my polka Docs.

A few months ago my boyfriend gave me this turquoise, onyx, and jade ring that belonged to his grandmother. I wear it nearly everyday with my butterfly ring, another gift from my lovely boyfriend. 

This outfit:
Faux Fur Stole: H&M
Jean Jacket: Gap (vintage)
T-shirt: vintage
Leggings: American Apparel
Shoes: Doc Martens
Butterfly Ring: Tiffany & Co.
Turquoise, Onyx, and Jade Ring: vintage

Happy Thanksgiving!


Thanksgiving by jacagroff featuring cotton canvas bags

Here is a set I created inspired by the outfit I wore today. Photos of my actual outfit will be posted tomorrow, but I still wanted to give a mini-preview tonight. 

Have you had a happy Thanksgiving? Overall I have had a beautiful day today, and I hope you have too!

Warm and Happy

 I love mixing shades and tones of the same colors. Orange and green is also one of my new favorite color combinations. 

 This is one of my favorite cold weather coats. I scored it at the Gap a few years ago for only $10!

Usually I don't put nail polish on my nails, but lately I am obsessed with Illamasqua's color called "Rampage". Since I already wear a lot of green, it mixes well with my wardrobe and is perfect for the season. Find it here!

This is the bag I use during the week, especially when I am at school. It literally fits everything. 

This outfit: 
Coat: Gap
Scarf and Architectural Ring: Sway
Bag: Ecoté (bought at Urban Outfitters)
Boots: Wanted (bought from Nasty Gal)

I also want to give a big thanks to my friend and co-worker Toshiko Shek from It's Not Her, It's Me for taking these lovely photos. Check her out! Her style is awesome, and I am endlessly envious of her vast clothing collection.

I am happy to say its time to bring out the scarfs, boots, and chunky knits! Mix these seasonal basics with a light modern scent and a dark lip color to give this look a trendy update.

New Polka Docs!

I finally purchased my first pair of Docs! I found this pair already on sale and I also had an extra 20% off  discount code, so they were fairly inexpensive. (Free shipping too!)

I pretty much haven't taken them off all week. 

This outfit:
Sweater: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Shoes: Doc Martens (Find them here!)

Tuesday Shoesday

Its the last month of the quarter and all I want to do is party, thus I had to post Jeffrey Campbell's Night Walk. Unfortunately I'm stuck writing my thesis and I have little time for fun. I guess the good part is that it will be done soon and I'll have the rest of the school year to (kind of) kick back. 

Maybe I'll get myself these shoes to celebrate when its all over? A girl can dream!

In Love

Margherita Missoni and OrphanAid have teamed up to launch another affordable Missoni line, that also donates proceeds to help care for AIDS patients in Ghana. The line features the iconic Missoni chevron print and the price point is amazing. (The most expensive piece is the raincoat for $163 USD)

M Missoni for OrphanAid will be launching at M Missoni stores in Milan on November 10th, in New York on November 15th, and finally online at Yoox on November 16th. 

I'm so excited about this line! What do you think?
