Oh the weather outside is delightful, actually it's a little frightful..

I'm so excited for this post! Ahhh, there's something so magical about snow and winter and the holidays... maybe it's my good mood that makes me so excited for these wintery photos. Originally, my sister and I had planned to run in front of our house, speed-take a dozen photos, and then rush inside. But then, a few cars came whizzing by and in order to keep discretion, we tiptoed like Spy Kids into our backyard. It was actually nice out, so we had fun taking pictures. I've concluded that my body is made of steel, as we were out there for about half an hour! (I told this to my sister and she was all "steel is still cold blah blah blah" but whatever. The point is, I'm a beast. I don't get cold.)

Getting dress, I was pretending I was some sophisticated lady getting ready for a sophisticated birthday party. Obviously, this was not the case, but half the fun of life is living in pretend fabulousness! So, shhhh, please pretend that I went over to friends' house and sipped illegal bubbly champagne by a lit fire and exchanged stories. Okay?

I discovered this dress at Value Village this summer, but had yet to wear it. Whenever I slipped it on, the oversized shoulder pads made "80s go wrong!" a very feasible option. Like, everytime. But I finally found a way to wear it without screaming at the 80s (I hope). No offense, 80s.

My sibling, though clad in a winter jacket/ hat/ boots, was stuck outside for a good 30 minutes, so I promised to post a picture of her. Because she loves pictures. Of herself. A lot..

Not to sound overly arrogantly pleased with these photos and what not, but I have to say that it was so hard to choose my favourites. Therefore - my main moral of this story - I've concluded that I'd be a complete fail at working at a fashion photoshoot, as I'd pretty much cram as many photos as I could on a fashion spread.

Need to get more socks and still desperately seeking black oxfords!

I hope that you are all having a wonderful holiday. Oh wow, I sounded so cliche there, but whatever. Holidays make me cheesy, so yeah. Something about the music, fake trees, and bow ties everywhere. Hmm.

I hope you all enjoyed these photos! Thank you to everyone who gave me camera suggestions - will definitely look further in them. And thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you are great and cheesy and happy and spirity!

PS. Does anyone have lookbook? I have this new infatuation with continuously checking out that site, and I'm kind of desperate to join it. Only to find out that you need to be invited. I don't know the logistics, but if you could email me an invitation code or what not, I would love you so much and make you a super star with all my nonexistent powers :) But really, could anyone invite me? (I feel like a loser who's begging to get into a party. Which is kind of the situation here..)

Hi Lexy! Your blue dress created quite a fabulous contrast with the snowy background. You look awesome.

Lexy! It is so obvious that you are superhuman! I mean, you don't get cold?! That is so an indication that you're a superhero of some sort!! The window shots are my absolute favorite - I think they're worthy of a fashion editorial in a magazine!! :)

Hy there! Thank you for visiting my blog and for the sweet comment :D

your outfits are really lovely, love this last one so much!

You look great!

kiss!

Andie said...

love love this outfit, i think its one of my faves. the colours just go so well together, the grey and the black kinda mute the shocking blue dress that is so awesome(but i can sense its quite hard to wear). yeah sometimes the 80s can be too 80s, sucks that it has to be that way sometimes.
and i got an invite to lookbook awhile back, but i dont really get lookbook. enlighten me on the subject, will you?

Jen said...

i love the color of your top (and the puffed sleeves!) and oh my god, the ruffles peeking out from the bottom are lovely. i'm now following. your sister is lovely too :)

p.s. for lookbook, you can also apply to get onto the site instead of just using an invite code, that's what i did. and they'll email you back to let you know if you got accepted.

Valencia Lia said...

Love the puffy shoulders with your dress and also the inner grey skirt with it<3

Oh my, SNOW!!! I love the blue shade of your dress, it's so pretty!!

And wow, you can really stand the cold! I don't think I would go out in the snow like that unless I'm bundled up in at least 3 coats:P

I really really love your shoes too and how you wore the socks with tights, too adorable!!
