And on the complete other end of the spectrum because they make me smile in that wait-does-anyone-actually-use-those way: Smittens!

In a shockingly spontaneous move yesterday morning as I downed my pre-work coffee, I purchased this vintage leather skirt from hotvintage. I'm not entirely convinced that I can pull off leather but I'm excited to try!
Also in my search I found this quilted leather skirt. I strongly considered upping my leather skirt purchase count to two for the day until I saw that it has a 26 inch waist. Ha! I am pretty sure I would have to rearrange my rib cage to make that fit me so I hope some twiggie out there snaps it up and enjoys it so I can live vicariously...
Basement Jaxx featuring Lightspeed Champion - “My Turn”
My new on-repeat track: Lightspeed Champion’s soothingly sad voice combines with Basement Jaxx’s dance rhythms. Like most great cocktails, the combination is even better than the sum of its already wonderful parts. The audio file was too big to post, but hey, just an excuse to share the retro-tastic video.
I'll never run awayAlready posted on Tuneage. Other recent posts: my best of 2009 and a fabulous Metric remix.
You could never get away
All of this love we've lost
Has left me in pieces, in pieces

Anyways I originally envisioned a big, plush upholstered chair but I came across this folding chair on Anthropologie's site and I'm kind of in love. I think it's super fun without being overwhelming. Still I'm having a bit of a hard time parting with the upholstery dream so if anyone knows any place good to look where I won't have to pay with my first born, please do let me know!
Just a little (more!) shameless self-promotion. Here are links to some of my recent pieces on SheKnows:

We've had our Christmas tree for a month or so now and it's barely dropped a needle! I couldn't be more smitten with it. To the point that I don't want to part with it. Can I just keep it and change its decor with the seasons? In February it can be covered in pink and hearts!
First of all, happy new year everyone! I know I've been completely MIA. When I started this blog I wasn't working except for freelance work so I had a ton of time to devote to it. At the start of the summer I started a wonderful new full-time job. With working full-time, plus writing for SheKnows and blogging for Tuneage, I found myself overextended and posting became a burden. I decided to take a break until I felt really excited about blogging again. Since then, I've decided to cut down on my freelance work, and have found a better balance with everything. Posting will probably not be very frequent but time will tell! I'm sorry to be a fair weather blogger and always appreciate everyone who stops by to my little corner on the web.
Happy new year and I hope everyone is well! And warm! It's terribly chilly here in Manhattan and I'm living in a perma-layer of puff coat.
