New Sponsor, Your Eyes Lie!!

Very excited to announce another company I'll be working with, Your Eyes Lie!!


They were kind enough to send me three awesome garments from their new AW2011 Collection!!


I love this dress!!


I love it because of the waning moon--I'm a bit superstitious, and bad things always seem to happen to me when the moon is full. So to have this moon on my chest makes me feel safe, haha, I am an odd one!


I love the american flag print!


Even their tag is cool!


I collar on this is really interesting, which is why I got this! My boyfriend thinks it looks like a car ran it over, but I think it's awesome!


It's actually fairly thick and quite warm!

Don't forget to check out their awesome website, here!!



PS: Also, as you may notice, the photos on my blog are a bit larger now. I feel like they were just a bit too small before, so they'll be this size or bigger from now on. As always, however, the photos are click-able, so they get really huge if you click on them!!

Please vote for my friend!!

If you guys could do me a favor and go hype/vote, heart, Facebook, or tweet my friend, Courtney's entry for the Project x Lookbook contest I would really appreciate it! She has amazing style and totally deserves to win this contest!









Some words from Coutrney~
For those of you who do not know, Lookbook is having a contest with Project, the amazing fashion trade show that I having been dreaming about going to since I took an interest in fashion. The contest is co-sponsored by Azalea Boutique, a beautiful boutique located in San Francisco, and they are going to send one fashion blogger out to San Francisco for the day to help them film a video for AzaleaTV. On top of that great opporunity, they are also giving the winner a $1,000 shopping spree to spend at Azalea.

So here's the favor I am asking of you...

If all of you via Lookbook could do me a huge favor and hype/vote for my look on Lookbook for the Lookbook x Project contest sponsored by Azalea Boutique, I would really appreciate it!!! If you have already done that, then I would also appreciate it if you could heart, facebook, or tweet my look as well. This is an amazing opportunity for any fashion blogger If I won, the opportunities that could arise from this could launch my fashion blogging career!!!

I know I may be somewhat new to the fashion blogging world, and I may not have as many fans as some of the more experienced Lookbookers, but that doesn't mean I don't deserve a chance. I want to put my name out there, I want to show the fashion world what I can do and how I can influence it.

I have worked extremely hard to get to where my status is today on Lookbook, my blog, as well as other fashion websites. But I never gave up because fashion means the world to me, so (once again) please make sure you hype/vote, comment, facebook, tweet, and heart my look! Each one is very much appreciated!!!

Thank you so much!
Courtney ♥

First snow // Oh My Frock!

I am in love with my new dress from Oh My Frock!!


It was SO fun to wear in the snow. I love wearing black when it's snowy out!!


The detail is sooo pretty up close, I love the delicate lace. You might not notice, but the dress is actually just a sallopette! The long sleeved blouse underneath was just what I decided to wear with it.


It's funny because, I went up to this same place TWO days before and it was so hot it felt like summer. Thank you, Oregon, for your weird indecisive seasons.



So bitter cold!


I love this horizon.

New Sponsor-- OH MY FROCK

Packages packages packages!! This is from my lovely friends at OH MY FROCK.


I am stupidly obsessed with this shirt. I've been wearing it around the house for at least 3 days straight. It's SO comfortable!!


It reminds me of traffic lights at night. I like wearing it to the bar paired with my denim shorts!


I am seriously IN. LOVE. WITH THIS. I wore it yesterday in the snow! It was our first snow, too!


The details are simply amazing. This is some good lace!!


This material is so cool!


This actually came paired with the first top. It's not exactly my taste, but I know I can make it work! I like a challenge!!
