Lookbook: Off the Grid

11/25/2013

Gap slim cropped grid print pants | Ray-Ban folding wayfarers | J. Crew Factory big bow sweater | Romwe collared top | Shoedazzle Erin pumps | t+j designs statement necklace | Versace for H&M faux fur vest | 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target mini satchel
Do you see a grid-like design on the Shoedazzle pumps? I thought that made them the perfect pick for these pants. Sweater weather in the bay, hence the bow sweater and the addition of the faux fur vest. I don't wear this vest much, because it's cold enough only so often. Wore this to a Chloe + Isabel pop-up shop event and then to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire with some friends. It was so much better than the first movie. I highly recommend you see it (whether or not you've read the books). It won't disappoint.

By the way, I usually shop online, but every now and then I will go to an actual mall. I went over the weekend simply to exchange something (in and out), but it took me almost a lifetime just to find parking. The mall parking lot was a madhouse. When I was leaving, some cars were vying for my coveted spot--so much so that I could hardly get out of the space. In conclusion, I will not be shopping Black Friday at the mall, and will, essentially, be off the brick and mortar grid. Thank the heavens for online shopping because people be cray!

What do you think of this look and how was your weekend?

  2. Adore the trousers, so cute!! The pattern is marvellous. I don't like shopping in the mall either, I buy pretty much everything online. People are definitely crazy and it gets even worse with a sale...like they become further possessed!! I just have to click the button and it comes right to my door, what's not to love about that, no parking or even getting dressed :)) Have a great week doll x

  3. The shoes def goes beautifully with the trousers. I love the overall look. I always find movies made from books tend to dissapoint and having read all three Hunger Games before, i was quite dissapointed with first movie. I'm going to see the second one on Wednesday so hopefully it will be good.

  25. I totally dislike Black Fridays. I've never been at the madness hours but have gone later in the day. By then, most of the crazy deals are gone and people's hype has died down but the crowds are just not pleasing. haha. Like you, I'd rather shop online (and mostly do for convenience all around). =)

    BTW this look is fab! I have been eyeing those pants! =)
