young detective

18 Dec

What do you think about capes?  Are they cool or are they too “dracula called, he wants his cape back”?  I’m starting to want one, but I think capes look best on tall girls.  Not stubby, nerdy girls like myself.

I know this one is a little extreme, but I think this girl really pulls it off.  Cape from Oma Vintage on etsy.

I really like this one from asos.

And don’t get me started on the adorableness of this gem. Also from asos. This outfit is perfection!

Even Forever 21 has jumped on the bandwagon!  I really like this ensemble too.

My favorite is this capey coat on Rhiannon taken from her blog Liebemarlene Vintage. I want all of Rhiannon’s clothes!


more lusting

11 Dec

More things I’m lusting after for Christmas/my birthday.  I really want all of these things!  I might buy one or two items myself once the holiday stress dies down.  Most likely the floral rucksack from Asos and the Fresh sugar products cause these things are too good to pass up.  Oh, and the fur scarf from fossil!  I might go this weekend to buy it.  Ever since I saw this post from Anabela I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect faux fur scarf. Art can buy me the rest!

I don’t even like the Sofia champagne that much, but the packaging is so pretty and my 25th calls for something special.  I’m not sure what I’m doing, but I’m definitely getting a strong drink somewhere to calm my nerves.  I’m really panicking about turning 25 guys!

Someone needs to put this girl in a magazine, movie, music video, or somewhere else she can be looked at in public cause her looks and style are purrfect!  She’s 14, British, and has an amazing blog I recently discovered.  Doesn’t she look like Lou Doillon?  Ah, to be young and beautiful…
