Same Pieces, Different Ways

I first got the idea to do a post like this from Alexandra of To Vogue Or Bust. As a student I really don't have lots of extra cash to spend, especially on clothes. Due to this I have not only learned to shop in a smart way, but I also make sure I can restyle things I own in different ways. Here are some of my favorite restyled pieces:

My Marc Jacobs large dot tights are super fun and funky. They add spunk to any outfit and I love wearing them. 

I probably wear my denim jacket more than anything else in my wardrobe. In fact I've attempted to put a cap on the number of times I can wear it in a week, but that really didn't work. I guess just really love denim!

I love this Marc by Marc Jacobs sweater. Its kind of like a super comfortable jacket that can still be worn inside. I sometimes even hang out in it when my apartment gets too cold. I figure if I'm too broke to turn on my heater I might as well lounge around in some Marc by Marc Jacobs.

My faux fur jacket from Anthropologie adds a really opulent attitude to any outfit. I really like to throw it on top of anything no matter how dressy or casual a look is. 

I can seriously think of four posts this month in which I have been carrying this vintage Coach bag. I dug up older pics though to switch things up. I adore this bag because its not flashy and has a classic vibe to it. 

What pieces do you find yourself wearing over and over again?

Tuesday Shoesday

Lift, Jeffrey Campbell, $159.95

I don't own a lot of nude, but I am slowly falling in love with it. I am also really into the missing middle-base, and of course the clear aesthetic.

Pajama Privilege

Lately all I care about is being comfortable, so pajama dressing is currently my favorite trend. Obviously actual pajamas or sweats are not exactly the best fashion statement, but comfy pants are the perfect alternative. They fit like pajamas but look way cuter. I just bought my first pair this past weekend and I'm totally hooked!Comfy Pants

Style Kitty: Video Style

As I have promised, here is the video Toshiko and I shot while we were hiking in our Jeffrey Campbell shoes. It was actually easier to get back up the cliff than it was to go down, but the shots here entirely worth the effort. 
I find the whole thing pretty funny, and obviously a little crazy. What do you think?

Good Morning Santa Cruz

After almost 6 years of having the same sunglasses, I've finally committed to a new pair. I got them from my friend Toshiko's shop. All my sunglasses have to be super oversized, and I am very picky about it. These ones are definitely working for me!
