Dress for less: A Blanket Scarf

Dress for Less: Blanket ScarfOne of THE items this fall is the coveted ZARA Blanket Scarf. Who didn't get it last year is for sure getting it this year, or at least one of the many versions popping up all over internet. Are you on the market to get this scarf? Because I know I am! Here is several different blanket scarves that would make a great buy this month - or a great gift for someone next month!


The original one from fall 2013 is long gone. You can buy it on eBay for about $70 - if you are lucky. The bids are getting higher by the minute, because the scarf was truly iconic with its colors and shape. They sell a 2014 version of the scarf for about half the price, but with about half the cuteness as well.

Nasty Gal

Close second to the ZARA cutie is Nasty Gal and their Fall Back Scarf... which is sadly out of stock. You can sign up for their waiting list, or move on. I moved on, onto...


Isn't this scarf from ASOS simply gorgeous? I love the dark burgundy and sapphire combined with just a hint of yellow and blue. The ASOS Oversized Black Check Square Scarf can be yours for only $34.11. Not bad, considering the shipping is free both ways! 


Since I'm always on the hunt for the best deal, and no way I would pay over $30 for a scarf, I dug deeper to find the coveted blanket scarf for less. This one looks almost like the original ZARA one and looks awfully comfy and cozy! Get the Mixeshop Large Red Camel Navy Green Plaid Checked Tartan Scarf Wrap Shawl on Amazon for only $18.47 with free shipping. Woot woot!

Redhead of the Week: Miranda Hobbes

Happy November! The most wonderful time of the year is almost here and nobody has time to think about clothes, because everybody is busy thinking about shopping and cooking and baking and... At least I am. That's why I decided to revive the Redhead of the Week column to boost some color inspiration in our busy lives. And who is a better inspiration than the most famous redhead on a TV show ever? I swear, Miranda Hobbes haven't worn a color that would not suit her. Take a look: 

Dark Violet




Dark Blue

Sky Blue



Dark Yellow







What do you think? What color do you like on Miranda the most?

Hello November!

October was insanely busy. I worked at two local festivals, organized a fashion photo shoot, had a visit from my sister who lives in Europe, got sick, published the photo shoot, said goodbye to my sister, started planning my own trip to Europe... and much much more. I am so happy that November is here, because I finally get to relax with my family and shop, cook and bake for the holidays. 

I did something new with my hair // Excited to wear fall colors!

Happy National Cat Day! 

My hair is getting long and I didn't have time to color it in weeks. 

Wear all the colors!
