You all know how much I love stars!  Star prints, star designs, star jewelry; it’s kind of my thing!  So here’s what I’m drooling over right now: some January star love~

This star print top for starters


Which I could totally wear with these jeans!

Adventures in Dry Skin

Winter in Chicagoland means dry, dry skin.  And my moisturizing regimen just isn’t cutting it!  So I’ve decided to completely switch things up.  With the help of this website, I’m going to spend January CONQUERING this problem!

First Up: Cleansers.  I had a facial recently, and the very nice lady suggested that my harsh cleanser might be causing some of my dry skin problems.  So I’m switching from my PanOxyl (which I’ve used for years) to Olay Foaming Facewash For Sensative Skin.  It got good reviews, it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, and it’s easy to find (this is a very underrated thing in products).  I’ve already started using it, and my skin is less dry.  So I’ll try if for a few weeks and give it a full review.

Also: Tune in next time for…Adventures in Toner!  (or possibly a facial moisturizer.  Haven’t decided yet)

Today’s Colorfree Friday is brought to you by Sunday.  And the letter G!

My black/white/grey wardrobe is getting better, I finally have enough stuff that I don’t have to wash my work clothes every other day, yay~  But I can always use a little more inspiration!  So here’s what I’m looking at right now.

I don’t know who you are Random Internet Lady, but I love you!  You have the perfect style, and have managed to make wrinkles look dang sexy~ (the shirt, I mean)

Black on Black on Black!  Not everyone can pull this look off; the key is having different textures and shade-matching your blacks!  Tricky, very tricky.

Also?  Not everyone’s complexion looks great with black ~near the face~.  It can be too harsh for some (myself included).  A lot of ladies are better off with a grey or other shade close to the face, otherwise you can look a little anemic, or a little aged.

So! F-ing!  Cute!

So! F-ing! Cute!

And in the OH MY GOD I’M IN LOVE WITH THIS category, is this Dia de los Muertos cardigan.  I need this because of reasons!

Fashion Personality

I’ve been having fun taking those “fashion personality” tests online.  Those things are hilarious!  And somewhat schizophrenic: I’ve gotten crazy mixed results: classic, preppy, athletic, eclectic, classic chic, boho…

I don’t like any of these terms, really.  They’re kind of boringly vague.  I want better terms for this! How about we describe ourselves a little more accurately~ 

My Fashion Personality is

1. Blacksmith Chic

2. Kickass Chick Inspired

Zoe from Firefly

Does this style have a name? Zoe-tastic? I vote for that~

3. Texture Mixing Obsessed (it’s the new print mixing~)

4. DIY Classy

5. Functional Elegance

6. Cowgirl Cardigan

Actually, I’m this girl!
