Thrift Store - Click here for their website

The wall of the Mexican place we had dinner at.

Buffalo Exchange at Bedford Ave. It was closed when we got there. :(

A bookstore at the Mini Mall in Williamsburg.

Coffee Shop.

It's been a while since me and my best friend went thrifting, and although I only got one item, I could say that my night was fun. :)

Blue, denim, & leather

Knit Turtleneck - J.Crew || Vegan Leather Jacket - Silence & Noise || Shoes - Urban Outfitters

The weather here in the East Coast has been outrageous. It has been snowing on and off for weeks and the roads look absolutely disgusting because of all the black slush and puddles. I first shot this outfit with a beanie on (it was really cold today), and then realized I looked ridiculous because my hair wasn't cooperating. This growing process is really getting on my nerves because my hair looks extremely awkward. If you look back at my older pictures, you'll notice that my hair was much shorter, and the other side was shaved off. I'm trying to grow everything out now because I really miss my long hair. Anyways, stay warm everyone!

Really sorry for the lack of update. School has taken a toll on me, and I've only been back for 3 weeks. I'm a nursing major, and my classes have been sucking the life out of me. i'm not saying I'm not enjoying them, because I really am! It's just that it's really exhausting to juggle all these classes and to do other things at the same time.

Anyways, I received this vintage coat as a gift (think of it as a pass-me-down) and I've been obsessing over it since then! I just love how you can wear it with other neutral colors and a lot of black and white. And it's also extremely warm! So warm that I don't even need another layer inside. I can say I'm in love.

Chuck Chucks: Interchangeable Jewelry

I've always been one to wear arm candy to complete my outfits, and a few days ago, I received this package from Chuck Chucks. They have 12 different leather bracelets and over 100 Chuck Chuck attachments to choose from. I chose the black leather bracelet because it goes with everything! I definitely will not be stopping at 6 attachments, because I feel like I'll be wearing this bracelet with almost every outfit. Also, you can use the coupon code jillc1 for a 50% discount on their website!

plain jane

It was extremely COLD today, and it didn't help that the winds were really strong either. I really did not know how I had survived walking in the streets. I went back to school today (after the much needed winter break), and was very much frustrated with choosing my outfit. It was about 20 degrees outside, but I knew that once I step foot inside the school, it would be about 70 degrees inside the building. I was really nervous about going outside in just ONE coat, but alas, it surprisingly kept me warm! Also, I have never been a fan of black and brown, but I guess this outfit turned out pretty cool.

Knit sweater - H&M
Button up collar shirt - Ann Taylor
Coat - Zara

I'm not one to enjoy the cold. Sometimes, it gets really difficult to get out of bed to do what you need to do just because it's too cold outside. I start school tomorrow, and here in New York, the temperature has been atrocious! 18 degrees at 3 in the afternoon, can you believe that? I don't even know how I still get myself look decent enough to take outfit pictures for the blog. I guess I should just take advantage of this weather by taking out the coats I have long been itching to wear the past few months.

Stay warm everyone!

Turtleneck top - Vintage
White faux leather jacket  - Forever 21
Pants - Urban Outfitters
Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell

These pictures were taken by my father before it got really cold here in New York. I didn't want to put it up at that time, because I was frustrated with how the pictures turned out. We took these photos at 4 in the afternoon, so the sun was at its peak, and the lighting outside was really bad. I couldn't edit the photos properly, so I didn't put them up on the blog. But today, as I was looking through my photos, I decided to edit these and voilĂ ! They turned out pretty nice.


I'm currently inspired with long coats, knits, monochromatic and minimalist fashion. I think each picture here just says "chic and effortless". This is why I've been eyeing long coats and knits for a while now. The combination of the two never fails to turn out so beautiful.

Disclaimer: I got all the pictures from Tumblr. If you know of anyone who owns any of these pictures, please let me know so I can credit them properly.

White Noise

Nirvana Shirt - Urban Outfitters
Yin Yang Leggings - Forever 21
Faux leather vest - Forever 21
Green jacket - Urban Renewal (Urban Outfitters)
Shoes - Urban Outfitters

Today was extremely cold so I had to layer a lot. Even though it felt like it was about 5 degrees , I took advantage of the beautiful snow outside. I seriously love snow, I just dislike the fact that it's really hard to travel around because of all the train delays.
Anyways, I looove the color scheme of this outfit, and the beanie just pulled it all together. Plus, it kept me warm! I think the only head wear I like are beanies since my hairstyle does not allow me to look nice in other hats. ): 

This song is just perfect for today's weather! I couldn't stop listening. I hope you enjoy it too!

Top - Unif
Tights - Urban Outfitters
Shoes - Urban Outfitters
Coat - Vintage

I never knew that dark brown could look pretty good with an all-black outfit. I didn't know what outfit to wear with this coat first other than the plaid dress I recently posted on here. So, I decided to experiment and came up with this outfit! I can't really complain, I think it turned out pretty cool.

Anyways, today was pretty warm until it hit 5 pm. I thought I was going to turn into a human ice cube. The air was seriously so cold, it felt as though it was biting you. I think that's what I get for wearing tights in the winter. ):
