Cute, Cuter, Cutest.

20 Nov

CCC: Quilted Vests

CCC: Quilted Vests

Cute: Old Navy Quilted Zip-Front Vest, $34.94
Cuter: J. Crew Factory Quilted Puffer Vest, $98 $78
Cutest: J. Crew Excursion Quilted Down Vest, $120

Out of nowhere this morning I had a hankering for a quilted vest. I cannot explain it, and I won’t try to, so here are the three best options I found. White would be ideal, but with my purple hair, I better go for navy or classic black. The J. Crew vest comes in a “light amethyst” that is to die for. I found a few other options, but I’ve got my eye on an Old Navy one. I’m having dreams of layered button-ups, sweaters, and statement necklaces underneath a warm, cozy vest. Of course, all of these babies have gold hardware. I wouldn’t want them if they didn’t.

Black Friday & Cyber Monday sales are just around the corner, so…

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

I love any excuse to dress up. Today, my BFF Trina and I finally won the office costume contest after almost three years of trying. This year our costume was based on an office inside joke, but I wanted to share our pride and joy with you. Here are some previous costumes of ours too, so you’ll know just how many things a tall redhead and a short asian girl can be together:

First, a throwback to our college days (I think this was 2009). We actually weren’t even working together at this time; I just thought I would throw it in since it was cute. We were Angela Kinsey & Karen Filippelli from The Office:

Fast forward to 2011, our first year working together. Our company was so small that it didn’t have a Group category, so our votes were split between us and we didn’t win. Black Swan & White Swan:

In 2012, we were Hipster Disney Princesses – Hipster Ariel & Hipster Jasmine:

And this year, we went as a devoted woman and her cat. And we took the cake! We won first place for Group, and now all of our efforts feel justified. I bought this awful cat hood/paws thing off Amazon. It shed everywhere. The nose I had custom painted by a lovely seller on Etsy. Pair that with some face paint, fishing line for whiskers, nude lipliner, and a white ensemble, I was the purrfect white kitty. I wasn’t going for cute – I was going for terrifying, actually. Mission accomplished!

And here we are, in all of our fabulousness, after photos were done: What you know bout us

Hope you guys are having a wonderful Halloween!
