NYE Studs.








Light pink H&M lace blouse cape, Black Topshop Studded shorts, Tan F21 suede wedges, Pink ASOS quilted bag.


Help me get to front page of Teen Vogue (will be the best New Years Present everr!) :), 
click the heart on my Fashion Click Post.


First off, HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE lovelies!! I know you hear me say this a lot, but I feel like I wish I could say it to you all in-person, and so to make up for that, it'll be said quite a lot -- "thank you" to past and new followers and friends.  Ever since I started this blog back in late September, I never knew how many opportunities it would bring about, but so many has happened -- thanks to all of you. I wish you all fun, happiness, and love for 2011.  Def let me know how your NYE goes down! 

Whenever I think of New Years - anything glittery or shiny comes to mind, and so I wanted to add a little hint of "sparkle" to my NYE outfit.  Although this is a very untraditional take to "sparkle" - decided to wear my Topshop Studded shorts I bought from the lovely Sandra of 5 inch and up blog. And remember my love for cape blouses? I found one at H&M! So happy i did, and it has a lovely lace detail on the back. 

Yesterday traveled to Emeryville Bay Street with the boyfriend, enjoyed some Pasta Pomodoro Alfredo and focaccia bread w/ olive oil/pesto (yum, i'm obsessed with food sorry lol), and drank soy white mochas at starbucks in Barnes & Noble.  

While there, picked up my copy of "Style Diaries"! I read it so quickly because it seriously was a major inspiration fashion eye candy. Glad it was interactional too where I could look up the bloggers after seeing their best outfits, one fashion blogger I really loved was Kayla Hadlington.  Def recommend buying or looking through Style Diaries on your next bookstore visit.



And so far a #1 New Years Resolution I'd like to share with you is..my extreme neeed for organization in my life - especially with my CLOTHES. They need to be treated better, and as you can see - i have a messy pile of clothes in my room and my shoes, bags, drawers - all are everywhere.  I need a trip to Ikea stat.

lol, and yes you can see a hint of my spongebob pajama pants, they were from Middle School :p.


Lastly, for this post, wanted to ask you, my readers what you wanted to see on my blog for 2011??  I really am interested in hearing out what you want to see on here :).  So please feel free to leave comments.  And again,  have a fantastic HAPPY NEW YEARS beautifuls!!

<3, Kathleen.

Happy New Year Kathleen!!

When I think of New Years, I def think of glitter, sparkle, glam, etc. too. Your studded shorts are so freaking adorbs - they're perfect for kicking off the New Year.

For 2011, just keep posting your amazing outfits and showcasing your style.

BTW, not to sound creepy, but I think I saw you walking around the Cal campus during Finals week. But I was rushing to one of my finals, so I couldn't stop and really make sure it was you. Also, I probably was too shy and felt too creepy to just come up to you and say "I recognize you from online!" But just letting you know haha

Great post! Lovely shorts!!

Black Pearls said...

I really love this outfit you are wearing it is too cute and really suits you. And I also had the same problem as you with organiziation haha. I had to re-do my whole room beacuse I had clothes every where..it was like a tornado had hit my room full affect.But
I think you should do a tutorial on what is needed( basics you need to start off ), the do's and don'ts and what is right to wear for your age and how to make better progress on your style because your style is magnificent!!!!

I am beyond jealous of your gorgeous hair, and I can't believe that top is from H&M! It is so pretty. In terms of the kinds of posts I like to see on fashion blogs, my favourite thing is to just be inspired by outfit posts by the authors of blogs.

Happy New Year!

Gorgeous find! Do you go vintage shopping often?

mariannaxoxo said...

ok so i have previously told you how much i adore your outfit but now i came up with an outfit idea with your glam sparkly shorts..how about wearing them with a black tank top,black loose cardigan,black ankle boots and a black clutch with sparkly things on it and studs...
is it too much black for you?

Dara U said...

those shorts are killer! love them
