ripped tights with sweaters- who says you can't have it all?



I'm so happy it's Thursday! This weeks needs to be over.... nothing to really complain about, I'm just kinda over it and excited for the weekend which will include shopping for Ski gear for the 2010-2011 ski season, wine tasting and sleeping. Very excited!

{Shanin. Me. Fun.}

In the meantime, I would like to explain how much I am loving certain things lately. Like... ripped tights on nights out with fun friends and big earrings and karaoke which I'm horrible at but actually enjoyed...much like my last Friday night. I don't go out as much like I used to, in fact the images below are at this bar that I hate and never go to anymore... but others wanted to go and so we went and I had a pretty, damn good time. Funny how that works:

{Singing with my best friend is fun (left) and serious (right)}

{Above: Does it get better than to have friends like this?}

{Left: the boy and me. Right: singin' my heart out in my fave michael by michael kors batwing sweater wore over my black american apparel dress seen here}

{3 out of 5 of these people had just gotten back from a costume party. I'll let you guess who is who..}

Yes, I am loving all things brown and ripped.

Basically, I want to pair this urban sophisticato look...

with this white-trash meets badass rocker look.

Let it be Friday so I can try this look again!

What trends are you dying to rock?

*disclaimer: I didn't rip my tights for the trend. I just simply transitioned old work tights that were headed for the trash into my night out to give it a whirl.

Love the sexy legs in the first photo and in the middle of trying to figure out where that sixth leg was (behind on the right?) imagined myself in different positions on that piece of furniture (incorrigible). It's an interesting sexy style mix you picked out. Of course i like the pic on the bottom left. Those models are too skinny but you and your friends look fantastic out having fun. i'm dying to find just the right super-girly outfit and the courage to try to rock it (i'm such a chicken).

You and your friends always look like you have such a blast; and though I'm not typically a fan of the ripped tights look, I adore it on you!

Hmmm...I would love to try out the poncho trend. Seriously, I am like obsessed with ponchos!! :P
