Cozy up for a cold winter!

My fashion heads, I've missed blogging this past week, because like a lot others I was hit with the Thanksgiving cold. Hope everyone had a great holiday, mine was wonderful, I spent it with my husband and  family in a log cabin, a new tradition says our wonderful Aunt! But now I'm here and I wanna talk about coats, yes I talked jackets in another recent post here, but jackets and COATS are very different. Jackets are something to just throw on for an extra layer and glitz to your outfit and to stay semi warm, a coat is winter necessary so you don't freeze your tits off get frost bite. Now trends, puffer jackets have been in the fashion world for years and every year are the "go to warm coat" along with pee coats, definite classic. I have noticed though in this recent month that designers are upping the anty of excitement and adding details to these very classic coats for a more pleasurable wear. So here I have you, some must have coats to keep you cozy for what I think is going to be a freaking chilly ass winter! Not like last year where I lived in my favorite leather jacket.

Asos has the best options and all for $200 and mostly under
Also, they are continuing their Cyber Monday all week so everything is 30% with promo code CYBERMONDAYSPECIAL

Fur trim is a big trend this winter, you can achieve this detail with either buying a piece, like coat, that has the trim built in or detachable. OR you can buy a fur collar and add it to you outfit, like sweater, over your coat or jacket, like I did here with my moto jacket

Here are some great options for fur collars, and you HAVTA finish off this cozy look with a fun beanie.

Sweater shirts aren't only for gym class...

My fashion heads,  I have to talk about a trend that I am loving. Making comfy sweatshirts stylish. So easy, who would have thought, sweater shirts don't have to just be worn to stay warm around the house or to do errands in and thrown on when your lazy. If you have paid any attention in the fashion world lately, fashion heads every where are covering their torsoes with graphic sweater shirts, and I think its a great way to stay warm and fashionable this season. Now, let me make this clear, in no way am I permitting you to leave your house wearing a sweat suit outfit with the matching top and bottom (oh GAWWWD). I'm talking about dressing it up and putting on a skirt , heels and some jewels for a night out, or for day time a pair of boys friend jeans, boots and again some bling<-uhh I have officially hated that world but felt the need to use it.  Let me warn you that, because of the sweater shirt phenomenon, you have to be savvy with your shopping, because fashion forward sweater shirts can reach the hundreds, but are indeed fabulous.
Here are some ways to wear, from some of my favorite fashionista's!
Oh, and of course my style snap shots, inspire on!

DIY in the stars x My first GIVEAWAY!

My fashion heads, this is a DIY moment. My mother, as much as I hate to admit it at times, has definitely rubbed off on me. When I was younger all I wanted was a doodle bear, some of you may remember this little thing, but if you don't, it was basically a bear that you can draw on and wash it and start over with the drawings. My mother was determined, and not giving in to the department store and paying the "expensive" price tag and therefor, made it her self. She sewed a little bear made of cotton and got me fabric pens from the craft store. Now I don't know how much in the end it saved her, but she was quite proud of herself and I guess also knowing her daughter very well, I only doodle for a about a week, so in the end I guess it was worth it. The DIY gene for sure creeped my way (even though I am adopted). So on the bottom half of my body we have a pair of jeans that I did the DIY deed with and re-created a pair of Current Elliot star jeans, these freaking jeans are a whopping $220 in stores. Now, you'll have to know that I will splurge on some items, but these I thought were absolutely absurd, you'll also know that I do love to find/get a great bargain. So in the back of my creative mind I thought to my self, "I can totally make these". I knew in my closet I already had a pair of nice grey jeans that I could sacrifice for the project. I went to Michaels, bought white craft paint and a blank stencil maker, because for some odd reason they did not have any sort of already made star stencils. I went home created my own star to the size that I liked and got to work. Let me tell you, this was very time consuming to sit there and paint each star on both legs, but now I was the determined one. The end result is exactly what I hoped for and costing a fraction of the price. Now I made these jeans mid summer, but felt the need to bring them into fall for a color blocking/monochromatic outfit.
The rest of the outfit consists of grey tshirt from blookingdales, a varsity jackets from Forever21, Zara necklace and boots, and Aldo sunnies.

Do any of you have DIY projects that your very proud of? Tell me about it in the comments and you could win my very first give away. Please leave an email address. Good luck!!
Giveaway ends December 30th

Jackets, splurging and getting a great deal!

My fashion heads, I have been quite the busy girl, and I wish I could say I was busy doing fashionanist things and shopping and fashion shows, but unfortunately I'm not that lucky girl just yet. Instead I was busy doing my real job, waah waah. If you read my So Who is this Fashion Head Alexa, you would know that I work for insurance, and with the catastrophe that hit the east coast, Super Storm Sandy, I have crazy busy at work helping people with their damage due to the storm. Although my outfits every day have been spot on, when I get out of work I have been mentally exhausted. Things have been slowing down at work so I will get back to outfits post but for now, I wanna talk about Jackets...yes jackets

Every couple of years I stock up on jackets, whether its the seasons trendiest jacket design or one that is classic and chic that will last years and seasons after. I find the hardest part is what to splurge on and what to find a good deal on. So here is my guide on the subject!

As I have told you, my other passion in my life is interior design, so why not put my love for clothes right on top of that like the perfect, and pretty, sandwich. Here we have a space in my dinning room, hanging from my favorite Pottery Barn mirror is a jacket from Zara, no its not that BIG of a splurge, costing a I think reasonable $90, it is an extremely classic jacket with a moto style (which is both trendy and classic), but the leather detail, clean lines and neutral color, I can most certainly see myself wearing this for a number of years. Now the jacket to the left is my beloved camouflage military style jacket, (you can see me wearing this here). Like I told you ladies, camo is definitely an ongoing trend for the season, so you might think its a one year wearing type of jacket, but in my opinion camouflage is here for a while, it always pops back up in fashion and I've always like the print so even if it isn't all the that "IN" next year I'm not putting it in the back of my closet. The thing I love about this jacket is the girlie details. A military jacket can very much be quite manly and is something to be added to an outfit that can be the juxtaposition to a feminine outfit, but the fine lines of this jacket is anything but burly. To the jeweled details on the pockets, the curved hem and the little bit of ruffled hem in the back it's girly city. My advice for finding a jacket that can keep you warm for at least a couple years, these are the things to look for: clean and classic lines, neutral colors, versatile prints and well made materials. So this obviously would be something to splurge on!

Ok some people will know the reference to this picture and to the ones that don't..well shame on you!
"Big says the kitchen needs work, but I don't know about that `cause I keep sweaters in my stove"  -Carrie Bradshaw

All of you should know that I DON'T COOK, and quite frankly I'm not at all ashamed to admit that, one day when I have kids to feed and keep alive I will most definitely do so, but for now, "what restaurant are we going to?". Just kidding I'm a very lucky girl who has a wonderful husband that enjoys to cook and try and plump me up, but of course we do go out to eat often. Ok enough with the rant, attached to my, we'll say seldom, seldomly cooked on stove is some very trendy jackets. And with trends I say this is the department where you need to save the money and shop at stores like forever 21, H&m or any other low priced store. These two jackets have my ever loving studs and spikes detail. The jacket to our left is a freaking white leather, oh wait faux leather. White!! Never in my life have I owned a white jacket and this one had raise of sunlight shinning down when I feasted my eyes on it at Forver21. This jacket I can definitely see taking my into chillier nights in the spring and for now warmer night outs. Yes it is a moto jacket so it is still classic and might be worn a numerous amount of time this season and to the next, but the chances, because of the color and maybe even the studs, this is going to be a short lived jacket, so for the price of just $30, if I wear it lets say 5 times,  $6 per wear is for sure worth it! The spiked shoulder blazer, no isn't a jacket, but for nights out with friends you don't always want to have to wear a heavy jacket that you'll have to end up holding the whole night, a blazer can do wonders, so this one is a must. A black blazer for every woman is a necessary staple in the wardrobe, but who knows how long studs are going to me a rave and for that another $30 is well worth it! Trendier the pieces, that is where we should not bust the bank and shop at Forever21 for knock offs.

Later on in my posts I will show you guys how I wore all these fabUlous babes!

Thanks for listening to my ranting, and enjoy your weekend fashion heads!
