Hello All. I have to apologize for the lack of new outfit post, I'm having some technical difficulties aka my camera is broken. In the mean time, while I wait for my new and way better camera to be delivered, I wanted to share some of my favorite looks from this past year.
2013 wasn't the greatest year for me personally, but I know that 2014 is going to be amazing and for that I am truly grateful and I hope that you all will be there to share in my adventures.

Just a quick blurb today because I have tons to do and I am too absorb in this new Beyoncé album to fully concentrate. The closer and closer we get to the holidays, the more I find myself gravitating toward holiday inspired frocks but of course I have to add my bit of glamour to everything. Red and white are two of the seasons classic color combos but I added a touch of black and gold to the mix. This vintage muff keeps my hand super warm and it just has a certain sophistication that gloves just can't give.
I encourage  you all to try a muff this winter to wear to your holiday parties and even everyday use because it will certainly amp up the glamour factor.

Vintage Fur

We have certainly had some crazy weather this past week. One day was sunny and almost 70 degrees and the next day is snow and hailing. These pictures were clearly taken in the latter. I got this fabulous vintage fur coat last week when I visited Minnesota. I love the soft fur and the color is to die for. This won't be the last time you see me in this, I plan on wearing it straight through till spring.

I finally ironed out the details of my upcoming giveaway so stay tuned for that this Wednesday. For more great content check me out on instagram @according2trish

A couple of weeks ago I was so happy to attend the engagement party of one of my good college friends, Robeya and her fiancé Terrance. It was a great night filled with family, friends and love. Even though my college friends and I stay in touch quite often it was good to physically see everyone and catch up.

The event was a semi-formal event so I chose to wear this festive thrifted dress to celebrate the occasion. I know I've explained once or twice (or a million) times here on the blog how great thrifting can be but seriously you can really find great stuff at the thrift store, if your willing to look and maybe to an alteration or two. This sparkly dress would be perfect for a holiday party or New years eve and I'm sure the are 100's more like it in you local thrift/ consignment store.
