This is a completely Nasty Gal inspired outfit, as I think the shape up skirt is the main star. I love that it's different, and it adds a whole new edge to this look that I normally don't incorporate. The (sold out, sorry!!) Market HQ muscle tee and the "electric" bangle from Merrin and Gussy added some zing too. When I walked around, I noticed strangers specifically staring at my skirt, not my legs. That's a good thing! And now I've said it before and I'll say it again... a little differently :) Nasty Gal is just that cool girl style you might not have known you've all been dying for. I check out their new stuff nearly every day!!

In fact, here are some items I'm lusting after:

All these black textures and shades of the most vibrant dark purple made me feel especially dark and mysterious. And my oh my, this coat is so glamorous I love it!! I actually styled it twice so I have I'm wearing it in another look I'll show in either my next post or a bit later (to mix it up a bit you know). 

Now what you might find interesting about this clutch, is that it is already mixing metals with gold and white/silver. So I wore all gold jewelry but I think a clutch with mixed metals gives you the go-ahead to mix some of your own jewelry too. 

Italy and New York are coming up fast.... and I think I need to start packing stat!! Also you have 1 more day to enter the Daisy Gem giveaway here!

Teal scarf - Sunday Scarves, Peacock ring - Daisy Gem, Purple velvet skirt - Lulus, Teal clutch - Chicwish, Purple suede heels - Cathy Jean [Similar: 1, 2, 3], Black top - Forever 21, Studded bracelet - JEWELIQ, Nails - China Glaze "Emerald Sparkle"

Whenever I think of velvet I think....

I love this infinity scarf from Sunday Scarves... it is actually my first infinity scarf and seriously it is so convenient!! You don't have to worry about how it looks at all because it always looks just right :) I thought teal would be fun to pair with purple and black... rich tones are my favorite and the only one missing is blue. (But that would have been too much!)

Congrats to Waltrene for winning the Quiet Riot giveaway, as always, the winner has been posted on the widget which you can see in this post here

Time for a new giveaway from Daisy Gem!!! They sent me the beautiful peacock ring (I'm wearing above) which you can pick yourself or any jewelry item actually, if you win!! Good luck! :)

Houndstooth "Autumn" Dress - Tart Collections, Heels - Boutique 9, Necklace - Art of Henri, Ring - Aldo, Bracelet - JEWELIQ

Photos by Irene R.

I don't wear full length dresses too often as it's easy to feel overdressed in the Bay Area, but really, everyday we're alive is a celebration, so dress up!!! :) Tart Collections has this classic wrap dress is Pine as well, which is equally if not more stunning... not to mention, emerald/dark green is the color of the year :)

By the way, these photos were taken at Communication Hill at the Grand Staircase. It is really beautiful there and you can see the whole valley. Check it out if you are in San Jose
