For once, everything I’m wearing is new! And I’m so excited to be rocking my latest purchases. Over the holidays I stepped into my first mall in I can’t tell you how long (the joys of being home!) and took advantage of the insane Christmas discounts. I picked up the earrings for $9 and coat on mega-sale for $22 from Forever 21 (unfortunately, it’s back to full price but still a steal at $42.80). And because there’s nothing better then stalking people on Instagram with all that holiday downtime, I saw this awesome Wow Beanie on Christian Joy’s instagram page and immediately went on her site to get it. While I was there I fell in love with everything and also got her signature Logo Sweatshirt (aren’t the colors just fabulous?).

Some of you may be familiar with Christian Joy (and if not by name then through her work). She’s an amazing costume designer and the artist behind the artist, Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs incredible stage costumes.

Lastly, I’ve been pining over these Cat Footwear Cat Colorado Boots for I can’t tell you how long! I got them right before leaving for the holidays and they were a size too big (they run a 1/2 to full size up!) and had to send them back for a size down. Coming home to them was the best ever. They weigh a million pounds (they are solid!) and may seem a bit masculine but I can guarantee I’ll be living in them all winter.
