Holiday gifties

I know this is a little late but I wanted to do a post of the treasures I received for my birthday/Christmas. 

From left to right: Miss Sixty black boots, Jeffrey Campbell granny heels (you can still get them from Urban Outfitters), Forever 21 combat boots (I love to pair tough looking accessories with girly skirts and such), Marc Jacobs heart flats, and Bakers gray suede boots from my boyfriend.

check that hardware

from left to right, starting at the top: vintage cuff, Betsey Johnson bow bracelet, Juicy Couture butterfly charm, Juicy Couture butterfly bracelet from my bf and Juicy heart ring.
(I'm hoping you ignore how creepy my hands look, especially because I don't have nail polish on! tragic.)

Cheap Monday tuxedo skirt from Flavs that I need to get altered because CM off sizes some items, French Connection kisses shirt, and Chanel scarf (my big gift from my parents for my 21st birthday)

Clockwise: Influence by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, The Little Black Dress, The Little Black Book of Style by Nina Garcia (hard to see), Style A to Zoe by Rachel Zoe, A Chanel coffee table book, A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style by Tim Gunn, The One Hundred: A Guide to The Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own by Nina Garcia, and Cupcakes a recipe book by Susanna Tee.

The books were probably my favorite gifts because I love reading and looking at pretty pictures. Can't wait to read them! Oh and all of these were purchased from Amazon, which is way cheaper than any of the bookstores.  

Let me know what you think and tell me about the gifts you received! Thanks to Flavs for taking these pictures for me <3

The grey suede boots are definitely kick ass. Books were definitely my fav Christmas presents as well. Half were about fashion, the other half about sustainability. I've been trying to find a book with good cupcake recipes; how has yours turned out so far?

sustainability huh? what books would you recommend? we're both interested in that subject. i haven't used any of the recipes from my cupcake book yet... but they look really good in the pictures!

The Green Book is a good one to start with; it's a fun, easy read. Plan B 3.0 and Sustainable Planet were assigned for one of my classes last semester, and they were really insightful and eye-opening. You girls would enjoy the section in Sustainable Planet about fashion. It made me feel even better about my local purchases at Urban Thread and the businesses practices at AA. I'm reading Cradle 2 Cradle right now. If you ever have 3 credit hours to play around with, look into IDS2935 aka Facets of Sustainability.
