Moments of Chic

Super excited to partner up with Piperlime today on SS!   These fierce AG pants and studded Steve Madden kicks are BAMF.  Love BOTH items to pieces!  
My new AG pants are legit for realz though.  They're SUPER comfy because they're kinda baggy.  I totally felt like a boss wearing them *grins*  Anywho, I totes capitalized on the tomboyish vibe by pairing it with a terry top with varsity stripes.  For those of you interested, this top's available at Deb for $12 (originally $24).  I suggest hoppin' on that STAT because it's a sweet piece, and I don't know how long it's gonna be on sale.

My Very First Chanel

Soooo I have some exciting news.  Ok maybe it's not THAT exciting, but it's exciting for me, haha.  I bought my FIRST Chanel bag a couple weeks ago!  ERMERGERD, I'm SO poor but so happy *grins*  Anywho, today's look is all about layers.  I started with a chic but simple top from Madewell.  I bought it years ago!  Love their sales so much.  I've found so many awesome deals there - an extra 50% off on the lowest price with an ADDITIONAL student discount?  Oh hell yes.
 My top sans jacket and scarf...
...and a full body shot for you guys!  I know shiny over-the-knee boots can be kinda dominatrix-y (yeah, just made that word up, NBD) but I thought they looked good with today's "conservative" LOTD.  What do you guys think? Yay or nay?
AHHH!  My bag *grins* LOVE this design.  I still can't believe I actually own a Chanel.  Probably not the most "sensible" splurge, but hey, every woman should have a solid investment bag.

All but Forgotten

Styled a monochromatic look for you guys today on SS.  I'm seriously lovin' my off-the-shoulder top courtesy of Charlotte Russe.  This gorg piece looks great dressed up AND down.  I obviously went for the latter today, but I could see myself dolling it up foshizzle *grins* Yes, I said "foshizzle". 
I paired the top with an oversized cardi (also from Charlotte Russe) and threw on a fab statement necklace to match!  Because the ensemble's bold, I carried a nude bag for balance.
LOVE cardis like this!
