day 17 // gold sparkles

posted on: February 18, 2011


I call this my Cher Horowitz jacket because any sort of sheer cover up reminds me of her. You know what I'm talking about right? When she's leaving to go on her date with Christian...
Mel: What the hell is that?
Cher: A Dress
Mel: Says Who?
Cher: Calvin Klein.
Mel: It looks like underwear! Go upstairs and put something over top of it.
Cher: Duh! I was just going to.
And she parades back downstairs with a sheer jacket over her mini dress.

I've never worn this VERY jacket (another little number that I "had to have"). The master plan was to wear this during the holidays, but no perfect occasions ever came up? So here I am in the middle of February just trying to figure out how to style it! I'll tell you one thing I learned, a sheer jacket is NOT winter wear ;) Today I obviously went for all black with a red lip for a pop of colour. I think next time I'll try it with a dress? This one is still in experiment phase for sure!

  3. eeeek I love your bun! It looks so effortless. I struggle making buns with my ridiculously long hair (past this boob at this point). May I suggest a tutorial some day soon? :) And what a clever way to add a splash of color to a monotone outfit by adding red lipstick!

  4. Looking beautiful as always!! I love this look. Black and a pop of colour always works :)

  5. i really like your hair in these pictures! How do you make that bun?!

  6. Love this look! You look stunning, I really like you with your hair up!


  7. cluless was on tv the other night! love it!

  8. Yes! My favourite outfit yet! Your hair looks amazing and love how you kept your accessories simple. Very minimalist and so chic (red lips was a great choice!)

  9. Um, your bun is fantastic. Love love love! There must be some kind of art to that lol!

  10. LOVE the outfit, and the red lips, and the big top knot on your head. so cute.

  11. It's true, I'm in love with your hair. I think I have a case of half-Asian hair envy. Mine is super thick but straight so it would just explode if to do that style.

    Then the 99s are just making me want to do some online shopping.

  12. OMG I LOVE Clueless! One of my favorite movies EVAH! I have it memorized LOL!

    Gah why do you always look so cute! Your hair looks awesome!

  13. I'm IN LOVE with this look on you! You look gorgeous with that red lipstick. This jacket is amazing and I kinda want one for my self......
    Love that scene from Clueless. Classic.

  14. I really like this jacket, the sparkly detail on the arms is my favourite.

  15. I love you for quoting from one of my fave movies of all time. Did you know that watching Clueless every day for 5 days straight is an effective way of battling seasonal affective disorder? Fact.

  16. I love this jacket, and I love this outfit!! I resort to the same thing when I don't know what to do with an item... all black, with color on lip & nails! But it ALWAYS works - you look so great! Hope to see this piece again, I like it!

  17. I love this jacket. I just bought it on sale. Thanks for the outfit suggestion. ;)

  18. Love all the challenge posts! You look great in black!
