Early Valentine’s Day

Is it just me or did they start advertising for Valentine’s Day really early this year?  Well, I guess the subliminal messaging worked because I wore this outfit recently:

dress- thrifted from saver’s, tights and flats- forever 21
cardigan- forever 21
apologies for the bad lighting, I’m really trying to work on it!

I wore it to a white wine tasting, which was a lot of fun!  We tasted different types of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Pinot Grigio– I think Riesling is my favorite because it is so deliciously sweet.  Even though we are technically only allowed to go to one, I’m trying to see if I can attend the red wine tasting because the white wine tasting was so informative and fun!  Which do you prefer, red wine or white wine?

Also, I would like give a big thank you to Anna and Ribka for both giving me the Stylish Blogger Award this week!

In order to accept this award, I’m supposed to share seven things about me– however, I am really bad at sharing in this sense, so I thought maybe you guys could ask me questions (in the comments) and I will pick seven of them and answer in the next post.  How does that sound?

I’m also supposed to pass it on to seven bloggers I’ve recently discovered, so here we go!

1. Gem from Gembear
3. Amber from Amber Blue Bird
5. Kristin from Doll Parade
7. Kirstin from Crimson Rosella

On Nnenna’s Needles #3 + A Special Guest

Hello Everyone,

Please meet my very good friend, Ms. Moebius Cowl.

Moebius Cowl

Her job is of the utmost importance.  She keeps my neck, and sometimes my ears, warm and toasty, so as to prevent these crucial body parts from falling off in the brutal cold.  She has been my especial friend ever since I was reminded of winter’s true force with the snowstorm last week….

Today, she made a new friend, Ms. Penny Pouch, sent by the lovely Cait of Kitty Cait.
gift from Kitty Cait for Pay It Forward 2011

Ms. Moebius Cowl met Ms. Penny Pouch in the Post Office and liked her from the moment she emerged from her packaging.  They are so delighted that they can keep each other company every day in Ms. Nnenna’s purse!  Not to mention that Ms. Penny Pouch came with some a lovely note :)

Ms. Nnenna and Ms. Moebius Cowl would like to give a big thank you and hug to Cait because they love their new little friend! :D  Also, you should check out Cait’s etsy shop because she has many pretty things and maybe you too can make a new friend!

P.S. I am not crazy or anything, just felt like writing this post a little differently today.  Hehe, hope you like!

Newspaper Anyone?

cardigan- forever 21, shirt- H&M, shorts- Charlotte Russe,
socks- Target, oxfords- Primark

I feel like all I’m missing from this pageboy outfit is a cap and a newspaper!  Nevertheless, I really like this look, especially the menswear inspired elements.  This is the last outfit that I took pictures of while I was at home- that’s why I could get away with those bare legs!  Also, I’d been looking for a pair of shorts like these to wear in the winter and found these on sale in Charlotte Russe for $8.

Unfortunately, not a lot to say today because despite my best efforts, I’m feeling under the weather.  Still, I’m going to try to be productive and use the holiday to hunt for jobs and write cover letters.  Tell me about your weekend though, what did you do?
