Get This (Arm) Party Started


When Outfits Epic Fail…

If I told you that the only item that wasn’t changed fifty times in this outfit was the leather pants, would you believe me? I walked out ready to go on our date, and [houston] looked at my sequin top, white undershirt, and chambray button down (unbuttoned) and gave me a dubious look. I knew right away that there was too much going on. So, I toned it all down with a simple silk & satin Kensie top (love that brand!), bright orange embossed belt, and of course, my arm party.

…New shoes are a pick me up!

I couldn’t wait to wear these mary janes by Nine West (they’ll be available in early October for the reptile prints, late September for suede). I had been waiting for them to come in the mail ever since I picked them out of the lookbook months ago, and here they are!! You will need to get your hands on a pair–I think you can preorder, actually. They’re so hot for fall.

Arm Party: Shashi bracelets (c/o) | Banana Republic wrap bracelet | Michael Kors watch | “diamonique” tennis bracelet | James Avery hook bangle | David Yurman bracelets

  • Is that a party or what.. awesome!!! I love your lip colour and the cute bow… cant wait to link up my arm party

  • I actually like too many things about this outfit to name them all. Okay, here's a few: the shoes (wow), leather pants that look classic chic, sparkly clutch, metallic nail polish, pop of orange. And the Arm Party!!! I've been talking about that for a few days and sending people to your blog. My arms pre-partied today. They had fun.

  • I actually really love the neutral grey color story with pops of color on your lips, belt, and hair. Can't wait to link up my arm candy tomorrow =) JB.

  • Kristina,

    Great outfit, whatever you changed out of this was the right thing to change into. I am a HUGE Nine west fan and would have loved more shoe shots–I know, I know…this one is about the "Arm Party". But everyday is a shoe party right?
