I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but turtlenecks are definitely having a moment in my wardrobe this season. It’s funny, because I can totally map out my neckline obsessions over the years: from my questionably attention-grabbing, cleavage-bearing highschool and college V-necks, to my I-just-got-a-job-this-is-what-professionals-wear-right? crewnecks… and now my necklines have migrated even further northwards all the way up to right under my chin :) What’s not to love though? With knits like these, you’re basically getting a sweater and a scarf all cozily rolled into one! And the cropped fit keeps the youthful, hip element you probably still wanna stick with throughout the rest of the season. Shop my cropped turtleneck picks below:
It’s never too early to get a headstart on holiday season shopping, and when it comes to party dresses, Free People has always been my go-to shopping destination. Their dresses are always gorgeously unique, and the attention to the tinest of details always make their holiday collection worth a wardrobe addition or two. The embroidered detail on this dress is absolutely stunning, and even though I couldn’t wait to show it to you guys now, it’s definitely gonna be making more appearances this winter!
Great news to my fellow Atlanta OTP residents: with this week’s opening of Alpharetta’s long-awaited Avalon, Free People is finally coming to the northern suburbs! They’re having a huge store opening party this Thursday, starting at 10AM (never too early for a party, am I right?), so don’t miss it! There will be gifts for the first 50 guests, refreshments for all, styling sessions on demand, and a week-long raffle to win a $100 Free People gift card.
Read here for additional information on the launch event, and RSVP here. Hope to see you at Avalon this Thursday!

Like a lot of people, I was super excited about the Alexander Wang x H&M collection when it was first announced at Coachella earlier this year. Unlike a lot of people, however, I have to admit that the full collection – while innovative and interesting in it’s own right – just didn’t really strike my fancy. Or maybe it’s just me still being bitter about missing out on last year’s Isabel Marant collection… I still “window shop” around for it online whenever I’m bored – it was THAT good!
So what’s a girl to do when she needs an A. Wang fix that’s still within budget? Enter eBay. I scored this sweater, new with tags, for WAY under $100 (it was originally $400), and now I can safely say that when November 6th rolls around, I’ll be happily spending my morning in the warmth of my bed instead of standing in line outside H&M. Score!
What are your thoughts on the Alexander Wang x H&M collection?
