Peanut the troublemaker

On Mallory: c/o Jovanna London Peter Pan collar blouse, Forever 21 mint sweater, H&M waxed oxblood jeans, Lyra booties

Two days ago Peanut jumped ONTO the kitchen table and gobbled up an entire plate of Christmas cookies...with raisins and chocolate.  So he had to go to the doggie hospital and get fluids and be monitored until today.  He was pretty unhappy in there (he had to have a cone of shame), so he has been super hyper all day today.  He's back just in time for Christmas :)

On Mallory: Kooka├» tweed blazer with elbow pads (bought it abroad, but Kooka├» is on Asos), thrifted Longchamp bag, Joe's jeans, Lyra booties

Recently I have been wearing these boots almost everyday; they are crazy comfortable.  I think they are cute, but my boyfriend says they remind him of Nacho Libre's fancy boots...

Winter whites

On Mallory: white H&M dress (on sale for $10 right now in store!), vintage jaguar belt, vintage Coach satchel
On Whitney: American Apparel 3-D mesh jumper and vintage Coach backpack via Crossroads Trading, Zara snake print skinnies, thrifted white booties

We had a sleepover last night!  Whitney and her BF came for a visit to hang out with Mal and her BF.  We ate at Burma Superstar.  If you live in Berkeley and  haven't  eaten there yet, GO... and order the tea leaf salad (yum!).  Just be prepared to wait, it is crazy busy, and for good reason.

DSC_1236a DSC_1264 DSC_1333 On Whitney: Tom K. Nguyen trench, Banana Republic chambray button-up via Crossroads Trading, Joe's Jeans colored skinnies, Zara sandals, H&M rhinestone necklace

I tend to lose a lot of my belongings, for example: shoes.  During a trip last month, I forgot my black Zara sandals in a cab after I had decided to switch into flats.  In case you haven't already noticed, they were my go-to heels (see here, here, and here), so you can imagine how sad I was.  I then justified my purchase of these new ones, which just aren't the same.  Still cute though!  And on the bright side, they're so comfortable that I won't have to worry about taking them off and leaving them behind somewhere again.

fantastic mr. fox

_MG_3664x _MG_3733 _MG_3705dark _MG_3728
On Mallory: Love by design Fox sweater via Von Maur, J. Crew factory chambray shirt, H&M waxed oxblood jeans, c/o Threadflip studded clutch, Dolce Vita booties, H&M/Ann Taylor necklaces

Whitney and I have been drooling over animal sweaters FOREVER, but could not find any that had the right balance of cute and cost. These are the ones I had been drooling over (1,2,3) but could not justify splurging on.  I finally found this one at Von Maur (which I had never heard of...assuming it is the Macy's of the midwest??) and snatched it up for around $30! Sorry I cannot link directly to it though.. it appears to be sold out.  However, their website leaves much to be desired so you might want to go peek for yourself :)

I was ecstatic when I found these wedges on clearance at a BCBG outlet..and still am.  They're insanely high, but I will trip and fall if I have to.  :)

On Wednesday we went to a Crossroads Trading shopping party hosted by Kathleen.  She looked super chic in a peplum top and pencil skirt, but as always, we somehow failed/forgot to snap photos at the event...probably because we were too busy devouring cheese and crackers.

Autumn Adventures...featuring Peanut

On Mallory: Macy's contrast sleeve jacket (so similar to the Zara one we wanted last season!), F21 sweater, HM snakeprint pants, Mom's old rainboots

 This past weekend I went home to visit my family, and my brother and I took Peanut on a little outing. He's a princess (i.e. hates puddles and mud) but loved all the new things to sniff.  He also likes to think he's a lap dog (even though as a corgi he is way too long to fit comfortably) so when I would sit on a rock or branch, he would insist walking his little muddy paws all over my pants -__-.
