Outfit: Utilitarian Chic

Greetings Fashionistas,

Happy Friday and hello weekend! I plan to knock out the remaining Christmas shopping I have to do between tomorrow and Sunday. It's amazing to note but I haven't stepped foot in any stores so far. I've done the majority of my purchasing online and it was so worth it. However, the shipping deadline for most stores is swiftly approaching. I don't like cutting it too close so I guess I will finish the rest of my shopping along with the other procrastinators. I plan to hit the stores early and be out in less than the time it takes for my car's engine to cool. If you didn't know, I dislike shopping in large crowds and driving around searching for a parking space.....makes me go into "drop everything and leave mode". Oh well, I will just have to grit my teeth and go hard. If you see me on the 5 o'clock news I don't think it will be too bad anyways.

The pics I posted below were 2 days in the making, LOL. I downloaded and edited the photos the first day, then posted them to Blogger on day 2. Such a long, drawn out process for the 5 minutes it takes for your eyes to travel down and assess the outfit! I kicked it with my sister and I was too excited (her words, not mine) to pair my DIY vest with this new statement necklace I bargained down from $30 to $15 from a street vendor. Go me!

I merged the denim on denim trend with the utilitarian trend. I'm such a fashion follower, LOL!

Yes, yes, yes I'm still enamored with these lucite heels. They rock!

Vest - DIY (former long sleeved coat from Macy's)
Necklace - Street vendor
Shirt/Jeans - Forever 21
Bangles - Nordstrom
Handbag - Alexander Wang 'Rocco' (gifted from friend)
Heels - Jeffrey Campbell 'Soiree' via Nastygal.com

Have a safe and wonderful weekend!
