Happy New Year!!! Very belated New Year's (Day) outfit post. At what point do you stop saying Happy New Year to people?
Idk if you can tell but I'm doing "2-0-1-0" in the first 4 pics. And I love this headband to death.
The 3 bows on the back of the dress got torn off by accident :( Overall the material is sticky, plastic-feeling, and inflexible, not to mention a very poor fit, but I'm a sucker for anything leopard and don't you just love mini dresses with long sleeves? It's all about legs not cleavage.
Huge oversized bow hair pieces are just killing me too. I wore this huge red hairbow around Christmas, but need more, seriously. Also, in my Spring 2010 trend report, I posted about huge hair bows at Milly, Erin Fetherston, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Betsey Johnson.

silver boots: Forever 21

P.S. How do people do those really awesome hair toss pictures?!?!?
P.S.S. More obnoxious hair bows. Crave.
The bows get bigger and bigger on Lady Gaga.

OMGGG so delicious. Diane von Furstenberg's entire Resort 2010 collection features huge hair bows.
Also, and for those who asked, I used Photoshop to make the polaroids from this post and the last one!
Thank you so much for reading AlphaBetaChic!!! I love you guys, I'm visiting your blogs now!
Don't you just love polaroids? It gives each picture its own little frame and caption area! Just a little party dress from Forever 21, all the fringe makes it feel very 20s and flapper-ish. Worn here with the jacket dubbed "Napoleon" that I bought when I was traveling Japan.
Note to self, really liking this color combo of navy and gold.
napoleon jacket: sly, bought in Japan
fringe dress: forever 21
On another note, sooooo Zac Posen for Target, huh? Color scheme hints at his Pre-Fall 2010 Collection. Out April 25th. Does anyone else feel like affordable designer collabs never really meet expectations? The material quality is poor, the fit is horrendous, and the designs are very mainstream, which makes sense as the target crowd isn't very discerning fashion-wise I suppose. Oh I just realized that was a pun. Anyways, I'll probably go on buying Target collaborations but it's just because I'm really easily distracted by clothes. Photos from Fashionista.com and Style.com.
The dress looks like it could work, hopefully the jacket doesn't feel like plastic!
Really cute, but would you buy such a fancy party dress made from cheap material?
Actually I really like the words written in lipstick on this loose tank.
Hoping this oversized bow (left) looks more exciting like this (right) from Zac Posen Resort 2010.

This is probably one of my favorite outfits ever...ever. I'm wearing all my favorite things in one outfit! Anyways, I have really funny expressions today.
You know how I like working with color combinations? Black plus gold, beige, or nude go really well together. Speaking about nude colors, these Louboutin Décolleté pumps have been on my wishlist for the longest time, though I wish they were in the satin material!
And vests. Vests are my new favorite item to wear. This is another one of my very prized possessions. It has such a tribal feel to it especially with the beading at the edges.
Andddd this French Connection skirt is heaven. Its so pouffy, almost like a tutu! I love it, I wish I had more chances to wear it. I love, love, love pouffy, pouffy, pouffy skirts!
Fishnets are my favorite type of stockings, even though they don't lengthen your leg at all. Also, I always love wearing my boring black pumps so they don't draw attention away from my outfit!
