AWAKE and Thinking Magically

This is the time of year when there’s some reflective looking back as New Year’s Eve approaches. I definitely experienced a wave of that earlier this month as it’s the two year anniversary of losing one of my dearest friends. But every year I also feel this kind of giddy anticipation, something takes hold of me and I want to buy sparkly dresses, jet off someplace far away and live in the champagne party now.

We could talk about Spring 14’s subdued palette of black and white and neutrals, but I’m feeling more excited about new things like Natalie Alaverdian’s celebration of roosters for her line A.W.A.K.E. I can’t help but admire a little strut, especially when the coming spring’s fashion music is so toned down.

And then there was Libertine, magically thinking out loud for me with their “amulets protecting from negativity”.

I’m ready for a little fashion fun, how about you?

P.S. Make sure to swing by Magical Mined {our new decor blog} for a little Chair Shame.

  1. That last dress is pure perfection.

    We are all tired at the end of the year and if you have a sad anniversary coming up, then you probably need some quality rest.

  2. HA, how interesting! I think I fell in love with those trousers! 🙂
    Featured a few goodies in the post today. Happy Holidays!

  3. Having fun with fashion is always an essential during the holidays. Loving those trousers!!

  4. I love the one with the dots and stripes. So pretty. So sorry about your friend Mary Jo. I know it’s hard each year. Beautiful post doll.

  5. Those pants are really cool!!!!!
    I know what you mean. A family member of ours was just diagnosed with cancer. Life is really precious!!!!

  6. Sorry to hear about your friend. I like the pretty patterns for this post, although I’m more of a basics kind of girl.

  7. You are right Natalie Alaverdian’s rooster pants are great and wonderful way to do the black and white trend.

  8. Sorry for the loss of your friend. It sure can be a mixture of emotions at this time of year. I would love a pair of rooster pants like those. They really make me smile.

  9. My heart goes out to you – it is always rough to handle the loss of a loved one.
    But yes, we must go on and celebrate life as well and these prints are simply lovely! I love the roosters!

  10. I think I need some of those negativity protecting amulets 🙂 Those Libertine prints and silhouettes are quite beautiful!

  11. I love bold and statement prints like this and really admire the women that wears them! 🙂

    Feel free to visit my blog as well! You will find topics such as beauty, health, NYC fashion, personal growth and motivation between others! <3

  12. This time of year is always both sad and happy for me. Yes, it’s that reflective mood, pondering the bad and good that has happened over the last year, remembering your loved ones who are no longer with you, but also feeling enthusiastic about the merry part of the holidays and getting together with your family.
    PS: I won’t say no to having a little fun with fashion. 🙂

  13. Ahhaa…those rooster trousers are marvellous. I adore adore these pieces at the bottom here, they are perfect!! I just love them so :)))) The colours are gorgeous!! I hope you have a stunning Monday

  14. Good day! 🙂 Sad to get to know about your lost friend.
    Nice finds and I love your picks! I’ve wish-listed some of this and that, from both collections! 😉

    Have a beautiful pre-Christmas time!

  15. I am so sorry, sweetie! Btw: those rooster trousers are simply amazing. Oh boy, I love them! Happy morning, darling.
