It is good to be Queen

 I love today's outfit. The inspiration photo has been in my folder for over 2 years now so figured I should wear it before the trends change but amazingly colored tights and fur collars are still in!

The photo is from October 2010 issue of In Style Magazine:
Don't you just love the burgundy tights!
I noticed this tiny run in them after I put them on! Who has a run in their panty hose anymore! I was shocked. Of course I was brought up in the era where woman did wear them quite often and knew the trick of immediately putting on clear nail polish to stop the run!
 These shorts are very very old. I was reminded by how old they were by their high waist cut style. I don't mind the HW styles where the zipper is on the side so it kind of holds your tummy like a corset. But this one buttons in front which I hate. But I think at the end it looked fine.
 I used 5 safety pins to fold this fur scarf in half and attach it to my jacket like a collar. I have a collar one but it was too light colored and I like the punch black makes...
 My Chloe purse! I take off the padlock cause even without it it is sooo heavy!

These boots just don't age!

 Did my nails last night. O.P.I. glitter red trimmed by YSL burgundy from years ago....

Spent majority part of the morning at home doing laundry, cooking a crock pot meal and catching up on housework. Stopped at Burlington coat factory to look at dresses for my daughter's b-day party. The party is going to take place at this super messy (but cool for them) art place so my friend and I (we are hosting the party together) want a cheap and cute dress. Of course as usual when shopping for a specific item you can never find what you want. 
After that store dropped off the kids at my mom's since I have a dr appointment in the afternoon and went to Marshall's. Found everything but a b-day outfit.
Might do Kohl's and/or Target after the appointment. 

I got this ridicilously expansive (50% off at marshalls but still pricey) hair product set. Hope it is all that is claimed to be. I will do a more elobarate post if I am happy with the results.

I also found these cutest sandals for my daughter. I can't show them to her though cause she is the type that will immediately want to wear them and can't reason with her about the cold weather!

Aren't they adorable? And at $14 they are a great bargain!


  1. Great outfit! I especially love the tights and boots!

  2. Love how you perfectly recreated the look from Lucky's 2010 magazine! I'm never good at pulling inspiration from something like that, but this outfit has me thinking I need to give it a better try. Love the color of those tights. - Katy

  3. i love your take on the magazine look :)

  4. You are one rockin' mom! I really do love your adventurous spirit & fearlessness.

    Today's outfit is so cute. Yesterday's outfit was great, too! Burgundy tights. Bow ties. I can't compete.

  5. One of my favorites so far this year. It's like a sexy rocker meets business. LOVE IT!

  6. Love the burgundy tights paired with your shorts and boots! Great look :)

    Those shoes for your daughter are so cute!

  7. Yup, I don't think colored tights or fur collars are going anywhere soon, thank goodness :) I rather like the trend! I especially like it with the shorts! Glad to see I'm not the only one that keeps clipped inspirations for that long :) Congrats on the feature as well. Gotta check out their blog!

  8. OOowh, that so kind to feature us on your blog :D
    thank you ^-^

  9. i so love how you put your outfits together! i'm loving the color of those tights (you have awesome legs, BTW!!!) and the fur and necklace are fab.

  10. Awesome photos, you look great! new follower from the hop, would love a follow back.

  11. oh wow, you look HOT in this outfit! and the great thing about it is that you don't show any skin, you're covered from head to toe yet you still look so hot and chic! I actually like the tall boots you're wearing better than the booties in your inspo ;)

  12. You look so great in this post! This outfit makes you look so slim! Super model mom
