Theres nothing like a good closet clean out to uncover forgotten treasures.
This weekend I went home to help pack up my room. I spent a good deal of the weekend sifting through all the junk I have accumulated over 10+ years. My favorite finds being; a giant Chad Michael Murray poster from Teen People circa 2004 (this now resides on my door <33> Old Navy nail polish from about 1997.

Among the treasures found was this awesome army green cargo jacket. I've been searching for something similar for a while now, and all of a sudden there it was on a pile of clothes to get rid of. Needless to say, I saved this precious coat from that fate.

cargo jacket-H&M via my sis; grey hoodie-American Apparel; cheetah print bodycon dress-Thrifted; pink fur scarf-Dana Buchman; sunglasses-F21

A few other fashion related issues:

First...I spent Valentine's day eating chinese food and watching Confessions of a Shopaholic with my mom and sister. US Weekly may have given it 1 *, but I thought it was quite adorable and funny. Isla Fisher was just the right amount of awkward and psychotically obsessive. How is she married to the creator of Borat??? Krysten Ritter was also cute as the sidekick friend...and don't even get me started on Hugh Dancy. Like the world needs another adorable Brittish actor named Hugh.

Second...I have been browsing lazily the new fall collections on style.com and have yet to be very impressed or astounded by anything....I kind of thought Alexander Wang was a let down. I did love a few things..including the bags, but I will do a post on the pros of fashionweek later.

What are your thoughts so far???

Maybe I am biased. I love Wang's collection. So is erin fetherson, preen, marc jacobs! All fantastic.

I love to find hidden treasures, especially when I find something I was looking for!

Thanks for the award!
Even though I too dread switching out my closet for each season I do love it when I find new things within. It's like finding money in your pockets! yey...

As for all the collections that have been posting...nothing jumped out at me, hope that will change.
