online shopping haul: etsy & urban outfitters

Hello folks! I hope you're all doing well! I sure am... minus the fact that I am blowing my money on online shopping (but who could say no to the Urban Outfitters sales and mystery Etsy items?). 

Now, I'm trying to rationalize here, there's plenty of "reasons" why I should order new things. It's getting to be cold and I need to stock up on layers! I don't have enough of _____ clothing I actually need this! I haven't bought anything online for awhile and it was on sale! Well whether or not I actually needed these new items I got them anyways, and I love every one of them. Here are the things I got: 

I got this Kimchi Blue skirt from Urban Outfitters online. It's quite plain, but the embroidery adds a nice touch which is why I love it.
This Rag Union Double Foil Denim Jacket is from Urban, and it was on sale for $30! I love the bold purple color and the jacket has a 90s sort of vibe which is totally rad.

This was my mystery flannel from SASHASHORTS Shop on Etsy! It's over-sized so I use it sort of like an alternative to a jacket. 

Aaaaaaaand finally here's my mystery over-sized sweater from SASHASHORTS on Etsy! It's very comfortable and I absolutely love it. Her shop is amazing and her mystery orders are very satisfactory.

I remember a time when I didn't know about the wonders of online shopping (thanks Dana for getting me into it). Oh where the days have gone, but I mean what kind of fashion blogger would I be if I didn't update my closet once in awhile?

totes spooks

Halloween is honestly one of my favorite days of the year. When else are we encouraged to dress up and go all out? When else can we knock on someone's door and demand candy? Maybe I am giving into a capitalistic ploy, but I don't care. I can't be bothered to fight the system if I have Kit-Kats in my mouth.

This year, I was inspired by Japanese pop star Kyary Pamyu Pamyu (ala the "Pon Pon Pon" song) and her signature monster makeup to do a sort of demonic schoolgirl look. Surprisingly, the only things I had to buy were white eyeliner and false eyelashes! Everything else was found around the house. The "schoolgirl blouse" is actually a shirt-jacket-thing from the 2008 Olympics, but an alternative could probably be found at a thrift store. This look is really simple, but it definitely delivers. 

What were you for Halloween? Do you like looking cute for Halloween, or going all guts-and-gore-galore? Do you still trick-or-treat? (I still do. Whoops.) Let us know below!

Love always,

(P.S.: Apologies to all the small children I probably scared the crap out of.)
