Fauxionable Outfit – Burgundy/Oxblood Sweater & H&M Coupon

I wore this outfit some weekends ago to run errands and just realized that I didn’t get around to posting it. I absolutely love this H&M sweater and it’s the only piece of clothing I’ve bought during my clothing ban to replace an older sweater. I had a coupon and scored it for only $9! It is made of 90% acrylic (yes, I know it’s material to be avoided but I plan on dry cleaning it) and 10% mohair and definitely keeps me warm and cozy!

I would also like to share this H&M coupon for 20% off that I just received in my inbox. Perhaps you’d like to snag one of these sweaters or use it for a gift. Either way, happy shopping! 🙂

Fauxionable Outfit – What to Wear Where: Thanksgiving

Resuming from a short break, this week’s rendition of What to Wear Where is the Thanksgiving outfit. If you can’t already tell, I quite enjoy this series of W2WW link ups. I was almost a little sad when there was no schedule or announcement of the next link up and tweeted Melissa of I Pick Pretty about it! To my relief, it was going on a short hiatus and not gone forever. Phew. 😛

Enough rambling and here’s an outfit that I would wear for Thanksgiving… (and for more outfits, head to Amy of Forever29‘s blog)

Fauxionable Outfit - What to Wear Where: Thanksgiving Accessories

In the recent years, I have been wearing sweater dresses to Thanksgiving dinner when invited but I think I will switch things up a little this year and wear something brighter i.e. the jacquard H&M dress that is worn as a skirt. The colors also match beautifully with the Adia Kibur sample stone bib necklace courtesy of their PR team.

What will you be wearing for Thanksgiving this year? Do share!

Fauxionable Outfit – Seeing Red

This Fall has been much colder than the previous year or perhaps I’m just spoiled from a balmy Fall last year. I have pulled out my thicker sweaters and here’s an outfit paired with one of it.

On a side note, I am still trying to get back to my regular schedule on blogging. It has been rough as October was a bittersweet month filled with good and less-than-stellar memories. Also, it doesn’t help that the day is getting shorter and a lot of times there isn’t much light in the morning let alone evening!

In any case, kindly bear with me as I work my way back into my regular schedule. I still have my New York and Paris trips to blog about that I am getting behind! Well, hopefully I’ll be able to sort through them this weekend.

Happy Pre-Friday! 😉

Fauxionable Outfit – Purpley Prints

It’s much warmer today, or rather the weather is more apt of Fall with a high of mid-60s. Thus, a lighter coat and since it’s a Federal holiday – Veteran’s Day – I’m wearing jeans to work on a Monday! (I work for a government contractor, so Federal holiday = no clients)

Fauxionable Outfit - Purpley Print

I usually pair this top and scarf together as a go-to outfit but decided to add the argyle vest into the mix and mix prints together. Since it’s all different shades of purple, I think it worked out pretty well. That or maybe I’m biased!

Hope you have a great week ahead!

Fauxionable Outfit – Flyaway Friday!

Today was slightly warmer than the past couple of days, so here’s an outfit post where I’m not all bundled up, and just wanna hide under the covers!

I centered this outfit around the teal wool cape-like vest sweater that my sister bought for me. (Cape = fly, thus the title of my post, get it?) My lovely sister has a habit of buying clothes for me and she gave this to me during her visit recently. (The last time I went home, she had a stack of clothes that she bought just for me from all her travels. Do I have the best sister or what?!)

While I might not have purchased this for myself (I tend to shy-away from trends), I enjoy pairing it with what I have and have paired it with multiple outfits in the past week! I love the buckle on the neck which lends an equestrian style to it and teal compliments my skin tone well. This has quickly become a favorite item for me this Fall (which feels very much like Winter already!) and I foresee myself wearing it a lot!

Do you have any cape-like garments in your wardrobe? How do you style them?

In any case, Happy Friday!

Fauxionable Outfit – What to Wear Where: Girls’ Night Out

I decided to partake in Forever 29 & I Pick Pretty‘s What to Wear Where challenge for this week: Girls’ Night Out. Here’s my rendition…

Fauxionable Outfit - Girls' Night Out Cut-out Back Dress Pleated Skirt, Statement Necklace, white, black, gold

Adia Kibur Black Stone Bib Statement Necklace, Michael Kors MK5384, Chanel Reissue Wallet on Chain WOC, black, gold, accessories

  • Dress: H&M 2011

  • Bag: Chanel Reissue Wallet on Chain F/W 2009
  • Necklace: c/o Adia Kibur PR (available here)
  • Watch: Michael Kors MK 5384

I had previously blogged about loving the Adia Kibur stone bib necklace but couldn’t justify the price and bought the H&M version in lieu of it. I was pleasantly surprised when their PR contacted me to ask for my details to send me one! Thank you, Joseph of Adia Kibur PR! (I will write a proper blog post about that soon!)

I would also like to take a moment to send my thoughts and prayers to all those personally affected by the 9-11 tragedy.
