Fashion Friday: Addicted To Polyvore

So last night I was bored and played on Polyvore for like two hours. It’s seriously my new favorite thing in the world- kind of like my version of a video game. Anyways, I put together two outfits that absolutely have nothing to do with each other but here they are regardless!

Someone requested a Christmas day outfit and so here is a lovely one in black and white. I had to use the Manolo Mary Jane’s because it reminds me of a) wearing patent leather Mary Jane’s as a kid at holidays and b) that Sex and the City episode where Carrie is in the Vogue sample closet and declares them “an urban shoe myth”.

I saw this picture above the other day on The Sartorialist and thought to myself “That girl is cool.” Naturally, she’s from Paris which means she was born with style and coolness in her DNA. I recreated an outfit inspired by hers for us equally chic Americans… ;) I am jonesing for a red plaid shirt now…very holiday appropriate.

o kids, this is it for a whole WEEK! :( I’ll miss you- but I hope everyone has a very happy, safe holiday and I can’t wait to rehash holiday gifts and goodies Monday the 29th when I’m back!
Happy Holidays!


  1. Erin,

    Have a great holiday! Enjoy the rest and relaxation and of course the presents!

    Can’t wait till your back so we can chat about what Santa bought us this year!

    Love both outfits. I today was inspired by plaid as well and I’m wearing my chic new plaid shirt with ruffles of course with some skinny jeans.

  2. I had to have a plaid shirt this fall. I found one that I loved but unfortunately it met the fate of many of my clothes and was mysteriously shrunk in the wash.

    I have really enjoyed reading your blog this year and hope you have a wonderful Christmas and can’t wait for the recap!

    Merry Christmas!!!

  3. Realling luvin the second outfit. a lot. a lot. Great job. Will you share your secret and help a girl out? How in the world did you get your polyvore post normal sized? It posts sooo tiny to my blog. thx!

  4. I have a red plaid shirt from Penney’s I got off the clearance rack last year. So cute and has a little pleat ruffle detail down the the front.
