Day 91 -- Fall Floral

Friday, November 30, 2012
When: Friday, November 30th, 2012

Where: Running errands, Christmas shopping, studio, and to the Blue Whale with Alex for some jazzzzzz...

I have never gotten so many compliments on an outfit in one day! So many people -- men and women -- told me how much they loved my dress! For whatever reason, this dress had never been a go-to piece for me, but after today and all the love I got, I know I'll be wearing it again!

This was the first time I've worn these shoes, and I love the grey-on-grey look with my tights. The monochrome on my legs just feels good! 

I'm starting to get into the Holiday Spirit! I've already started day dreaming about going home for Christmas, cutting down the tree, making bread with my mom and sisters, cracking crab with the family, and opening presents on Christmas morning. Only two more weeks before we head north! But I have so much work to get done before then, so I better hop to it!

Day 90 -- Judgement Day

Thursday, November 29, 2012

When: Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Where: Studio and Vidal Sassoon

I rarely, if ever, wear head to toe black, but at the behest of my dear friend -- a now hair stylist! -- Matthew, I donned this inky outfit. I actually felt rather chic wearing this look with my little pops of red.

I spent most of today lounging in a salon chair. My hair was so straight and perfect I couldn't believe it was actually my own!

I'm now 10 days away from Day 100! I've decided that after I've reached 100 completely unique outfits, I'm going to allow myself access to the pieces in my closet that I've already worn. I'm calling this the "remix phase."

I still haven't worn everything in my closet once yet, but I'm getting to the point that I don't have enough skirts to go with the unworn tops, or sweaters to layer over dresses, etc. So, in ten days, I'm going to start mixing it up! I'll be sure to re-post photos or link back to the previous time I've worn a given item so you'll be able to see different ways to wear the same thing twice.

Are there any pieces you're dying to see make a comeback? Sound off in the comments section!!

Day 89 -- Raining Cats and Dots

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

When: Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Where: Studio!

Today was just kind of a grey day. I have about a billionty things on my to do list, but I spent most of today wedding planning. It wasn't as fun as it sounds, but I'm so pumped about what I accomplished today. I'm excited to share details sometime soon.

I was too lazy to put makeup on today, and I almost chickened out of posting the closeup photos because I'm less than happy with the way my skin looks in them. But then I thought, this is my face, and I love my face. If someone doesn't want to look at it, they don't have to. No one's holding a gun to anybody's head forcing them to read this blog. Everyone has their flaws, and I'm so exception.

So, scary high def closeup photos of my drab skin on my blog it is! Go easy on me, ladies.

Day 88 -- Mirror Mirror

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

When: Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

Where: Lake Balboa Park for super secret fun project time, Vidal Sassoon for a fancy new haircut (thanks, Matthew!), and Crave Cafe for dinnerfast.

Another comfy cozy day for me. Not feeling too hot, so I at least wanted to feel relaxes.

How cool is my new hair? I feel like a robotdroidsvedkaofthefuturewoman so I did have to spend a proper amount of time admiring myself in the mirror. Good thing I live with the dang paparazzi.

Day 87 -- Oh Geez It's Up to My Knees!

Monday, November 26, 2012

When: Monday, November 26th, 2012

Where: My studio

I'm feeling a little sloppy Sally today. I kind of just threw on whatever today. I'm most comfortable wearing a dress, and since it gets a little cold in my little back room studio, I put on these socks and a nice thick knit sweater.

Alex and I had fun shooting these photos in the middle of the street. We kept having to yell "car!" which made me feel like I was 5 again playing ball in the street, which is funny because I'm pretty sure I never did play ball in the street.

I love living in LA! Look at those palm trees shining in the sun! What could be better?

Go To Your Studio and Make Stuff

Having my own studio to work in was one of the things I looked forward to most when we moved into our new place. Now that I've finally unpacked everything and settled into my own space, I'm so excited to actually use it. This room is comfortable, bright and everything I could have asked for!

Day 86 -- Rose Garden

Sunday, November 25, 2012

When: Sunday, November 25th, 2012

Where: Farmer's Market, puppy shopping (no luck yet), and my studio

I tried to wear a very fall-appropriate black and navy DVF dress this morning, but it's summer again in LA and I had to switch to something a little lighter. I guess I had my fun with layers while I was in Boston.

We took the morning off to enjoy Sunday and took some time to smell the roses in our building's courtyard before heading back to work. There is no day off!

I'm so loving my new life and looking forward to every day! I can't get over it!!

Day 85 -- Fruit Stripe

Saturday, November 24, 2012
When: Saturday, November 24, 2012

Where: Running errands, and to my studio!

Today was my first day at my new job! I'm so excited to be my own boss. So far, so good! I just need to stick to my to do list. Working so close to the kitchen might prove to be a problem.

I'm so proud of myself today for actually going for this! I am so happy working in my studio and I'm thrilled that I get to do this every day. 

This was the perfect outfit for today. It was burning hot out, so while I was out running errands, the light fabric of this dress made me feel much cooler. I love the graphic stripe too. Hopefully I'll get the chance to wear it again and mix some prints in with it!

Day 84 -- Homeward Bound

Friday, November 23, 2012
When: Friday, November 23, 2012

Where: Lounging at the Chaloff's and flying back to LA.

Alex kept telling me that I looked like Mary Poppins in this outfit, which I'm totally okay with! I wasn't really going for style as much as comfort with this look. 
I've got all my travel essentials: comfortable long skirt, sweater layered over a tank, giant bag of books, and I'm wearing my bulkiest pieces so I wouldn't have to pack them -- my boots and my coat.

Day 83 -- Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 22, 2012

 When: Thursday, November 22nd, 2012. Thanksgiving day!

Where: Cooking and eating at the Chaloff household.

Although I did spend most of the morning in a pair of leggings and an oversize Vivian Tam sweater cooking a sumptuous meal, I did change to be more presentable by the time the family arrived.

 I definitely "shopped my closet" to come up with this look. This light and airy white dress is a great summer piece, but with a few layers, I think it passed for a fall look.

I'm mad about the polka dot tights and paired with these polka dot flats, they are double cute!

Day 82 -- Hamburgler

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

When: Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Where: Alex's parents' house, around Newton

Today I just wanted a simple outfit to bake in. I spent most of the morning barefoot in the kitchen wearing this striped dress. Sounds like a country song.

When I came time to go out into the world, I put on this pair of oxblood (color os the season!) tights and my over-the-knee boots. I feel like this color combo and the stripes make me look like the hamburgler. Which I guess isn't a bad look.

I had to have this little glove bag! It's a re-edition of a Margiela design from Spring/Summer 1999, issued by H&M at a very affordable price. Jessica and I lined up bright and early to get out hands on the goods first thing last week and while I loved the whole collection, all I made it out with was this funny little glove bag. I do have my sights set on those plexi pumps if I can ever find another pair.
