NEW IN: crazy neons, highlighter pink & teal sweaters

just got these sweaters, and they're obnoxiously perfect! colors are brighter than they appear.
the sweaters are from Topshop. i paired the highlighter pink sweater w/ my nastygal beige & black striped button up, betsey johnson chevron tights (love these tights! f21 made an almost identical version which i owned but they've since sold out, so i was so glad to come across these), & the tick by JC.

Chicago Blogger Network's Preview of Rent the Runway's Holiday Collection at Maxine Salon

This past Tuesday, on Dec 6., I was invited by my fab friend, Brandy of Mrs.WindyCityUnplugged to the aforementioned event.  I'd call it a collab party of sorts in conjunction with Chicago Blogger Network, Rent The Runway and Maxine Salon.  I had a great time! Great atmosphere, amazing space--the owner of the salon, Rent the Runway's AJ Nicohals (Director of PR, seen below with Brandy & I), CBN's founder & creator, Kelly O'Brien were a pleasure, as were the jazzed up fashion bloggers in attendance.

What i wore: Sam Edelman's York in Cheetah, dark skinny jeggings by Topshop, black fur vest was gifted by the bf, Nastygal electric blue blazer underneath, F21 black top with lace back, earrings made by me (click here for more pictures of my creations; be sure to contact me to place a custom order), black feathered clutch.

Chic Sighting: Rihanna in Suspender Tights + American Flag Shorts

i'm a fan. u know this. her look is always on point. i'm especially into this look, especially since i own these tights and have been salivating over these shorts forever. copying. i have the perfect faux fur vest and denim shirt for this.

Shorts by Topshop  
Tights by House of Holland, available at Topshop

also worn above by Solange in Beyonce's "Party" video. I'm also a fan of Solange's style, so I like this look as well--what I do not like is the braids--too 1990s for my own personal taste; i mean, who wears braids nowadays?--and big "hair balls" ; but FOR HER it works.
