The Modern Koi



     (Blazer/ Necklace/Bracelet - Forever 21 | Top - ANGL | Zipper Pants - Zara | Heels - Nine West)


As mentioned in my previous post of my Christmas wish list, I am currently on a hunt for blazers. Although I haven't found the perfect over-sized one yet, I stumbled upon this rusted red one at Forever 21. The asymmetrical cut on the collar gives it an edgy feel, which I love. Paired it with these black stretching pants with zipper details from Zara. The cold weather makes you want to wear stretchy pants all day, and luckily I found these just in time. I call them my " hip stretchy pants". Threw on this gold fish scale layered necklace I got a while ago at Forever 21 to play off of the gold zippers on the pants. I've also been incorporating this leather studded bracelet in all my outfits recently, kind of a staple item for me.

Looks like this will my last post of 2011! Hope everyone is gearing up for the upcoming year. I'm imagining all the glitz and glamor and shiny dresses being put on display on NYE!

I've got lots of exciting events coming up in Janurary, and I can't wait to share it! Also booked myself a plane ticket to Chicago next month as a self Christmas gift =)

To end the year on an upbeat not, I've been listening to a lot of Kaskade's old work, and this is by far one of my favorite songs. Not exactly the usual jazzy stuff I've been sharing, but I hope this hypes everyone up for the new year <333

  12. I love that gold hanging thingies necklace--and the blazer too, which is surprising for me since I can normally take blazers or leave them. You picked a fierce one though, cut and color wise, so yeah great look altogether.

    Hope you have a wonderful trip to Chicago and New Year!
