Winter is Coming

Hi everyone, hope you are doing well.

I may have mentioned I own a bunch of graphic tees - this particular one is from Game of Thrones, has the Stark family crest and states "Winter is Coming" (the Stark motto). For the record, I have never seen the series, just read the books. I actually like the motto better than I like the books, I feel like, the proverbial ant, its good to remember Winter is always on the way and be prepared. :) Its a good reminder.

Anyway, this is one of my fave ways to wear my geek tees - with a skirt and cardigan - just something different.

Cardigan is from Talbots
Tee is from
Skirt is from Target

Leggings from the Loft
Boots by Sam and Libby

Jason Wu Fall/Winter 2012

I have been watching Jason Wu for a little while, mostly around his work for the first lady, but I have really been looking forward to seeing what he was doing for Fall/Winter 2012 - I am not disappointed. I feel like I would actually wear some of these items as is. They are LOVELY!

I want to wear these right now :D

Target Sweater and Talbots Skirt

I don't really have a whole to to say about this outfit. Its one of my "misses" the skirt is a little small, making everything look too tight. It was the first time I wore it , and it felt a little tight, but after seeing the pics, I know it is way too small :)

My Coat

I realized recently that I didn't have any pics of my coat. I got this at the Loft for about $50 earlier this fall. I think someone had accidently marked it down with some other coats, and I snatched it up right away. At the register it rang up much higher, but the manager was the one ringing me up, and just said she was going to honor the price, before I even said to put it back. I know they are supposed to, but in this day and age, so many of them don't. It's not very cold here, so I don't need much.

Corduroy Jacket and Jeans

 I really like this jacket. I have two of them, one in a red color, and one in brown. Right now they have a few left in Women's Petites, but they pop in and out of stock. And they are down to $22. Great deal! :)


 Shoes and necklace :)


Talbot's February Catalog

After a hectic week or so, I finally got a chance to sit down with my new February 2012 Talbot's catalog. I am very impressed with the merchandise in this one!

The main color is Blue, mostly Navy, with some cobalt and sky tossed in for good measure - and the colors they chose to go along with it are mostly purples and greens, which look great with it. They have a great new featured print, which might be bold for some - the Ikat - but I think its cute.

This issue also has an expanded and well-featured suit section in the back. I have seen some complaints lately about Talbot's not offering as many suits, even though I think they were there, just hidden away in the middle of the catalog out of sight. In this one, they give a full, well highlighted section covering several new fabrications for the Spring.

Go check it out, what have been your faves from Talbots for Feb?
