Hello Christmas

Red plaid shirt-My Mom's- Gap
Black leather belt-Vintage Italian
Black silk taffeta skirt-J.Crew
Ruby red suede pump-Italy

Merry Christmas everyone!  The ensemble above is what I wore on on Christmas Eve, however; I did not have a chance to upload it until today.  It's not Christmas without the color red, so my inspiration clearly came from there! I like the contrast of the casual plaid with the silk skirt; it really dresses it up.  Ciao e Buon Natale!

Blue Eyed Girl

Leather jacket- Italy
V-Neck navy shirt- EXPRESS
Vintage silk accordion-style scarf- Florida

The leather jacket that I wore today my father brought back from Italy a few years back....and I have been in love with it ever since.  I cannot tell you the countless number of times I have worn this jacket-it goes with nearly everything!  A good jacket is definitely something to invest in because it will last you forever and is guaranteed to go to good use.  The vintage scarf I am wearing I actually found over the summer at a thrift store in Florida.  Thrift stores are marvelous because you can find cool vintage stuff for cheap however th downside is that you have to have a boatload of patience and a good eye to look through all of the junkies!  Ciao guys,

Bennie And The Jets

Zipper teal motorcyle jacket- Forever 21
White jean capris- Banana Republic
Knee-high suede camel colored boots- Vintage

Today my outfit was put together through the course of listening to the famous Elton John song "Bennie and the Jets"-hence the post title.  For some reason the song made think of thigh-high boots, which flashbacked my mind to the outfit Anne Hathaway wore in The Devil Wears Prada (picture below).  Since I do not own boots that high, I improvised with the vintage boots which ended up becoming what I based off my outfit off of.  Hope you guys like it!  Ciao,

I do not own this picture :)

What's black and white and red all over?

Red sweater from H&M
Macy's skirt
Steve Madden slouchy boots

Although a majority of my outfits come from some sort of inspiration , today I was initially planning on wearing something else and threw this outfit on last minute.  I already had all of the pieces from a while back, and this goes to show that you don't need to be rich to create a cute ensemble!  Ciao,
