cranberry sauce



sweater: h&m, skirt: american apparel, boots: zara, sunglasses: ray-ban

Huzzah! I have come back from the land of the dead... bloggers. Seriously though, this is my first outfit post in over a week. Usually I become a bit angsty and suffer from a nagging in the back of my mind when I fall behind on posting shit on the blogamabob.  Alas, I am back and lookin like a berry. Pretty sure every other time I've posted a monochromatic outfit I've complained about the need to match shades perfectly, or be driven to insanity. Something about this maroon, or ahem, as fall 2012 would call it, oxblood, let me loosen my need for perfect color coordination. Perhaps it was because of the clashing of textures, or maybe the pieces just had that perfect balance of different enough to not be confused as the same color, yet not too different that they don't match. 

Had to go for a cranberry sauce title since, you know, Thanksgiving is just around the corner. And after that... the holiday season! What would you say if I told you I've already started listening to Christmas music?

  5. Haha, I get the same nagging feeling. Usually I can stay on top of posting, its just getting back to other blogs and commenting that I slack on. Anyway, I LOVE this awesome mix of knit and velvet. So gorgeous, as is the cranberry color :)
