OUTFIT POST: BLACK AND GOLD & BLOGIVERSARY

October 01, 2012










( Jacket: Shop in Amsterdam  Sweater: H&M  Dress (shown as skirt):  Forever 21  Boots: Forever21  Bag: LF Store 
Hat: Top shop mens   Jewelry:  bracelet- Lucky Brand  Watch- Stop in Venice )

This past Saturday was my lovely cousin's (fashionistanygirl) birthday bash. I decided to keep it causal and put a sweater over this dress I got from Forever 21. Also I paired it with my leather jacket and favorite red hat which came in handy while it was chilly walking to the bar. It was a great night filled of food, cheap drinks and a few boys vs girls "beer" pong game (sadly the girls lost).  However yesterday I woke up feeling a bit under the weather, its almost that time for colds and overcoats. So hopefully I'll be able to update this week.   

By the way it's officially been one year since I started Pins, Needles & Fashion. Its been an amazing and a crazy whirlwind. A huge thank you to my amazing photographer/boyfriend for taking all of these incredible photos, and for helping me out while keeping me sane. Also thanks to Sade from Icon Concierge for allowing me to live out my fashion week dreams twice this year!. 

Last but not definitely not least, a big thank you to everyone who has followed me and supported this blog! You all are amazing and I am so grateful I entered this world to meet such amazing bloggers like yourselves. I'm excited for the future of P, N & F and hope you all stick around to share it with me.

  14. Wow! I loved that dress! It seems that the 'forever 21' sells many beautiful clothes .. Most fashionistas go through there. Especially those girls on the show ''pretty little liars'' which also looks awesome, love it!
