Man up

I hope you all had a great thanksgiving. I'm currently in Minnesota visiting the future in-laws and having a great time. Besides it being like 0° F, Minnesota is actual pretty cool. Tax free shopping, the Mall of America, and some great places to eat have made this place quite comfortable for me. 
Before I left Maryland, I was able to snap these picture and as composed as they look I must tell you that I was freezing!! Even though it's almost winter, I still think you can bare a bit of skin and still keep warm. The trick to rocking a crop top in the cold is by being mostly covered up otherwise. 
Well, I'm on my way out the door so I will talk to you all super soon. To catch up with me and see some more great content, follow me on instagram @according2trish

Boom with a vinyl skirt

Now I know that you have probably seen this sweatshirt on every single blogger but this is how I rock it. Ever since I purchased this sweatshirt, this is how I imagined wearing it. I had to have this vinyl skirt, so I made it. I feel like this outfit is a little more playful then my usual chic/sexy looks.

Orange Print

Now that it's getting closer and closer to the end of the year, I find myself gravitating more and more toward fabulous dresses I can don for the holidays. This amazing printed maxi number was purchased at the Gilt City warehouse sale in DC. It was my first time going to the sale, which happens twice a year, but it definitely won't be my last. My advice, if you do get to go to Gilt City warehouse sale in you city, that you try to get one of the earliest slots. I got there in the early afternoon and the fine pickings were all but gone. Though slim pickings, I was able to snatch up this dress and two other fabulous pieces.
I have some great things coming up on the blog this week, including a giveaway and video, so I do hope to see you back here.

The Cape

There is nothing like a cape to make a girl feel ultra fabulous and chic. This cape just makes me feel so bordeaux-esque.

A week ago, I had the pleasure of the attending an event at Eduardo Depandi, a luxury suit shop owned by Eduardo Depandi, Giuliana Rancic's father. The store was filled with beautifully tailored suits and guest were treated to champagne and sweets.  I was so trilled to meet Giuliana and he husband, Bill.  They are like the cutest couple (besides me and my babe of course lol). 
 I wanted to be classy yet sexy and I think I got the ultimate approval when Giuliana 'fashion police' Rancic told me that I looked fabulous!

Emerald with envy

Took a little trip up to Baltimore yesterday to take care of some business and found myself completely surrounded by amazing places to shoot. These murals we're literally with in the same block. I had such a great time walking around and admiring the street art. My favorite mural (which I didn't get a chance to shoot) was of a the super hero Flash in robotic form. It is just so amazing to see how talented people really are because I am a big art admirer. Sometimes I wish I was artistic in that sense but I'm just thankful and truly blessed to channel my artistic nature with clothing and food. It was really cool to find other forms of art that evoked a tone similar to my artistic piece, my outfit. 
Well enough with my ramblings, I hope you all have an artfully beautiful day.

Gone with the wind

 I can't believe it's November, the beginning of the holiday season and almost the end of the year. I've had a crazy year but am looking forward to ending the year on a very positive note and continuing that on into the new year.
Yesterday after a great church service, I took my beloved pup, Melody, to the lake for a walk. She is just a big ball of energy and always ready to play.
I'm fast realizing that I wont be able to not wear a coat any more. I wore this outfit first, without the jacket and then became super cold and had to put it on. This skirt from H&M is just too fabulous for words. I love how sophisticated and polished it looks. It kind of reminds me of Barbara O'neill from gone with the wind, hence the name of the post.

Everything that glitters

Happy Friday beautiful!! Hope you all had a very great and productive week. My week was filled with work errands and events. This outfit was worn on this past wednesday to two different event I attend. One was the worn magazine creative collective, the other was a event held for the United colors of Benetton. I had an exceptionally good at the Benetton party. They served amazing selection of hors d'Ĺ“uvres and had a great open bar. That was basically the highlight of the night.
Now a little bit about this outfit, the skirt and bag are both pieces I scored while in Amsterdam last year.  The gold velvet like fabric of the skirt screams regality so I had to pair it with my great vintage fur.

Hope you all have a great weekend. To see my weekend happenings check out my instagram @according2trish and
