Choies Pink Shearling Coat

I've been wondering what to write here for half an hour now. I've been staring blankly at the monitor in my pj's, looking like a patient from an insane asylum cause I just woke up. I guess there's nothing interesting going on in my life right now, that is worth sharing. If my life was a sitcom it would be cancelled in like 4 days. People would lapse into a deep coma after watching me play Guild Wars 2 for 5 hours straight....
The only new, slightly interesting thing is, that I bought a new lipstick, which is capable of lasting on your lips for a whole lifetime! I wanted a lipstick that could endure my constant overeating, but this is ridiculous! It's like it merges with the cells and you can't take it off until you rinse it a hundred times with acid! Still, it's a lovely, dark red velvet color and as long as it makes me look like a whore, I'm happy!  ^_^

Oh, how could I forget, I also got a lovely new shearling coat from Choies

These were very popular in every Bulgarian village. They still are, actually! The sour stench of sheep and little straws, and dirt woven into the wool, make them the fashion choice of mostly grannies and grandpas, so I'm curious, are these popular among villagers in your country too? 
It's weird seeing something that your grandma wore decades ago, just to keep her warm, turn into something fashionable which you can see on the catwalk, worn by sexy models with prickly bones. Can't say I'm not happy these babies are around, cause I love them! Especially the pink one I'm wearing. 

For the styling here I used a dark blue thrifted tank top, which I cut the sleeves off, because it was too big, the boyfriend jeans from Frontrowshop, and a pink belt for contrast. The pink socks were once white and meant to be worn by the male gender, until the boyfriend shoved a bright red t-shirt into the washing machine and now they're pink and perfect for MEEEE!!! ^_^
The huge pompom hat is an awesome find I bought 6 years ago, it makes my hair all electricky but it's worth it! Do you likey?

Cardinify Your Overalls & Yoins Review

In my 25 years of experience I've come to the realization that I use cardigans as a solution for everything. You're feeling cold? Put a cardigan on top! You're feeling under the weather? Put a cozy cardigan over your depression and rethink your stupid life choices. Hamster died? Put a cardigan over it.
See? Cardigans are multipurpose clothing pieces. And when Fall comes, I can't help but feel that I don't have enough of them. This year, I've been searching for a nice, colorful cardi that can complete my existence! I couldn't find one that was colorful enough, until I saw this eye candy from Yoins. I like how they used every possible color in the world and still managed to make them work together.

Few words about Yoins: I have nothing bad to say about these guys! Working with their customer service was a pleasure, their shipping was inhumanly fast, delivered straight to the door, cardigan is made of high quality material and is just the right sizing. Their selection of clothing consists of timely classic pieces, which my wardrobe desperately craves for. If you're looking for some basic essentials with a twist, Yoins is the place.

Now on to the outfit! Styling my overalls during colder days has become an annoyance. Putting a sweater underneath makes me look like a chunky turnip, so one way to style them appropriately was with my new cardi. Nothing new and groundbreaking, but this is something I just recently discovered so bare with me. 

I decided to stick with Autumn colors for this look. Since I wore it just for a lazy bike ride with the boyfriend, I wore my camel Chelsea booties and Mom's old leather bag.

Melange Pink Sweater & Purple Boots

Question: How many burritos can you eat, before the guilt kicks in and/or you get diarrhea? 
Answer: Who the hell cares!

I just discovered a Mexican restaurant which delivers food straight to your home and I've been in an existential crisis. I kept ordering everything that sounded mildly tasty. Now I can't stop feeling like a lonely fat dude, munching on tacos in front of the computer, with the blinds pulled down, because it's too sunny and I can't play Guild Wars 2 on a sunny monitor. Sometimes I feel so unpretty I wonder why the boyfriend stayed for so long. 

Any who, as surprising as this may sound, eating tons of burritos wasn't the highlight of my week! As you remember from my September favorites post, I snatched these lovely booties from a thrift store, but what you don't know is, I snatched this gorgeous melange sweater as well!  

Underneath the sweater I layered my lace slip dress. Of course you can't see it very well, because everything is so black! I wanted to go bare legged so badly, but my kidneys would have revolted!
What I like most about the shoes are the cut out details. I have a need to pair them with fluffy socks, but the only pair I have are these dull gray ones, still looks quite edgy. 

For a nice finish I used a pink lipstick and my glass necklace. Do you likey? How would you guys style these cut out shoes?
