What I Wore: 1-1-11

poncho/cape: H&M
faux fur collar: Foreign Exchange
jeans/jeggings: H&M
shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
purse: Asos

Hey guys! Xx
So this is what I wore the FIRST day of 2011!!  I wanted a fresh start to the year so decided to try something a little different.  You might look at the pictures above and think that there is nothing different going on, but for me there is (well when it comes to my personal style choices).  Not sure if you have noticed that I hardly ever wear "true" "blue" jeans.  Don't ask me why but I usually prefer dark black, gray and acid washes over blue washes.  I am not exactly sure why it is that I love blue jeans on everyone else, but really don't wear them much myself.  Well here I am finally in blue jeans! Lastly, can you believe that I got these jeans/jeggings (they have no zipper and no pockets) for only $12.99 at H&M!!! Yes I know total score right? I might have to kick myself for not picking  them up in the rest of the colors.
outfit notes:
I have been having the H&M poncho for such a long time, but I have never really worn it out because the original buttons fell off on the first day.  I had to replace  the buttons and that task took me way too long, I am a total procrastinator :x
Also, just realized that this amazing faux fur collar might have been the best use of a $20 bill  in all of 2010. No lie, this faux fur collar is one of my best purchases... as you can tell I find myself pinning it on almost everything!  Plus it's the perfect way to add a touch of faux fur to any outfit here in LA since we rarely get cold days. 
okay, I think that's it for today ;)

i feel the same way about blue jeans: i tend to gravitate towards dark washes only and i dont know why :)

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I love yours! You style is so effortless and cool. Definitely following you now :)

I live in Florida but sometimes it gets in the 30s-40s in the winter. I happily wear my coats, boots, scarves, and faux fur vest when I can :)

I think this is an awesome way to start off the new year! You look fabulous, that lipstick is absolutely your color.The collar looks so good tacked onto this poncho, I think it's what turns this look from pretty good to great.
