So, with all the free time I have on my hands during my marvelous winter break I have taken it upon myself to read the 6th and 7th Harry Potter books. I know some of you must be absolutely awestruck at the fact that I did not read the books right when they hit the shelves, but oh well I come around to things on my own pace. And I am happy to announce that I have just finished the 6th book.
And in the spirit of Harry Potter, and Christmas, my sister bought me a JCrew cardigan that reminded me of The Gryffindor House. I really love it.
The cardigan has brass buttons, and though the red isn't the correct shade, it still gives the feeling of the Gryffindor house from Hogwarts: School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Somehow Harry Potter, as well as a turtleneck I found at a thriftstore has got me in the mood for stripes. So I am on a hunt for some excellent striped pieces.
This is a simple striped Splendid T-shirt.
This isn't exactly the striped effect I was going for, but this is still a very nice striped cardigan by Juicy Couture.
This Rachel Pally Shell Dress is pretty neat, it's great with sandals, but would also work with jeans and boots.
I love these 2 colors together, and as you must know, I adore cardians, so this is really a great striped piece. UO
And for a vest - this is a more baggy, casual one that I really like. By Lux
Something that I have been trying to get into lately is turtlenecks. This Lux striped turtleneck would be really nice to wear a alone and layered.
This Nike scarf is supposed to be for some American Football team, but I like it because of the bold contrasting colors.
Now that I have sadisfied my craving for stripes I'll show some items I have acquired over that past month, or so.
This bracelet, though fake, I still like. My mom salvaged it from a Market parking lot.
My mom bought me the Elizabeth Arden 5th Avenue perfume set that I absolutely love. This is my favorite perfume, and I have used so much of it from my mom I am glad to finally have my own.
At a neighbor's garage sale I found this awesome Swiss made watch for 25 cents. Though it's hard to see in the photo, the arms of the watch are a girl and a boy, and the watch has the olympic sign in it. I love this watch so much.
I bought this weaved rose piece from the Unclammed Baggage Annex for $1.49 on my day trip to Alabama.
Speaking of Alabama . . . here's some photos I took on my trip there.
