And the Winner is…

Thanks to everyone who participated in my first giveaway! Congratulations to Jill Wittwer who has won!  Her favorite store is Nordstrom – one of my favorites as well  : ) Jill, please email me your address to and I will get your gift card sent out, you will have to let us know what you get!

Today’s outfit consists of a new blouse I picked up at Black Friday from Ann Taylor, I was looking for a great layering piece and I’m loving this one. It is silk with a little spandex and I love the cream color. I was hesitant at first to wear my faux fur vest to work (thanks to my friend Amanda for helping me pick it out!). I work at a tech company here in Seattle where most people’s uniform consists of jeans or shorts, a  t-shirt, and tennis shoes. They are probably all wondering what the furry thing I’m wearing around is, but I decided to just go for it!

Tonight I start Crossfit on ramp, which is a course 2 days a week for 3 weeks, that teaches you the fundamentals of Crossfit so you can safely participate in classes. I was doing their bootcamp, but the next session doesn’t start until January so I decided I might as well jump in feet first – wish me luck! : )

In exciting blog news, I’ve decided to do a new series called 1 item, 5 ways. I’m hoping to do this at least once a month and will pick one item that I will then create 5 different outfits around. I think it will be fun and stretch my creativity! Hoping to get one done this weekend or next so stay tuned.

Are you wearing any faux fur items this winter?

Jeans – Citizen’s, Vest – Express, Blouse – Ann Taylor, Boots – Halogen

can’t wait for your new blog series 1 item, 5 ways!!

and congrats to Jill =D


Yesterday I tried to take advantage of the cyberMonday deals at Ann Taylor and couldn’t get my shopping cart to load. Thankfully they extended their sale through today in-store and online (their servers had crashed, I was told). I went in to their store downtown and got a perfect pair of black herringbone trousers for 50% off! The sales gal told me to watch for future deals leading up to Christmas. Apparently they haven’t reached their projections for the year and we should be benefitting from future bargains.


    Sounds like a great deal! And good to keep looking out for bargains too : )


Can’t wait for the 1 item 5 ways series. I love remixing ideas! I haven’t purchased animal faux fur myself, just haven’t seen the right piece for me yet. It’s a fun, cozy look though!
