These past couple of days have been surreal. I’m still trying to wrap my head around everything that has transpired; there is so much to say, yet no words seem appropriate. Instead of grasping for coherent thoughts to properly describe the situation, I’ll share some photos from the other night.
On Friday, I went to a holiday party with my friend Molly. Since Molly also had a work function that night, we planned on arriving late to our friend Lizzie’s party. I had enough spare time to bake a homemade batch of Andes mint cookies and take pictures for a fashion post!

Taupe Wedge Booties: Steve Madden
I have been searching for the perfect pair of wedge booties for several months now—I finally found them when I went Christmas shopping the other day. I hadn’t planned on shopping for myself, but I couldn’t pass up a pair of Steve Madden booties, especially when they only had a 60 dollar price tag!
This outfit was incredibly comfortable and warm—the temperatures in Baltimore are finally cold enough for me to wear my faux-fur vest! While at the party, I met a girl, Sarah, who complimented me on my vest, but admitted that she didn’t think she could pull it off. I reassured her that anyone can wear anything; all you need is confidence.
Ironically, as I was leaving the party, some d-bags who stayed upstairs the entire time guys made several snide comments regarding my outfit. The leader of the pack asked what kind of animal I killed to make my vest. While I refrained from name-calling, I certainly did not let him insult me in front of his little minions. Rather, I remained poised and simply responded by smugly saying “It’s faux,” as I walked out the door.
What did you do this weekend? Attend any holiday parties?
Do you let others dictate your clothing choices?
How would you have handled the situation with the immature boys?
