This year Hubs and I are staying in for New Years. Jimi is sick, so we have to stay home and make sure he doesn't puke on anything important. But just because I'm staying in doesn't mean I shouldn't dress up like I'm going out. Wait. Did that sentence make any sense?

Isn't he the cutest? I can't believe he was only $7.99! I hope I can continue to find more outstanding animal jewelry for super reasonable prices. He may be my new favorite ring.
Happy New Year's, everyone! Here's to 2009: You were great, but I just know 2010 will be even better!
Vogue announced their list of 2009's Most Stylish Women. Do you agree with the rankings?
9. Freida Pinto, 10. Kate Moss, 11. Lady GaGa, 12. Lily Donaldson
17. Anna Friel, 18. Olivia Palermo, 19. Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, 20. Beth Ditto.
Do y'all see any other glaring omissions?
When I picked up my car from the garage yesterday I realized that I was already halfway to Savers! Since The Year of the Man Makeover starts Monday, I wanted to grab a few more things for Hubs.
Nonetheless, lady fashion will still remain my main focus. I did manage to snag a couple items for myself yesterday. Of course!
Despite my thriftiness, here's what Hubs said last night that made me laugh for five minutes straight:
What can I say? The man speaks the TRUTH.
Confession: I am from the Midwest and I do not know how to play euchre. Luckily my dear friend PQ is coming over tonight to give me a lesson to remedy that. Ha. Like I need another game to get addicted to?
Now to some, me not knowing how to play euchre may not seem to be a large matter, but to me, this is quite a tragedy. Many a college night was spent in my dorm room alone whilst my buddies reveled in their fun, euchre nights. Thus, my new euchre enabled self now allows me special social privileges when I go back home. I shall no longer be an embarrassment to the Midwest!
Oh, and here's what I'm wearing for such said lesson. Oh, yeah... fashion blog blah blah blah blah. Yep. This is the Dynasty blouse I got on my last Savers trip. I accidentally hung it in the guest room closet and forgot about it.
occasion: game night and euchre lesson!
blouse: vintage (Savers)
jeans: Built by Wendy (gift from Simplicity)
bee pin: The Good Shoppe (Christmas gift)
If you've been reading Adored Austin for a while, you'll know that I really, really don't like celebrity clothing lines (exceptions? Nicole Richie and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen... duh). I was bored by both of Lauren Conrad's collections, I was horrified by Heidi Montag's line, and I detest anything "made by" Lindsay Lohan. So imagine my horror this morning when I read on WWD that La Lohan is expanding her 6126 legging line to a full clothing collection. WHY?! LINDSAY, DID YOU NOT LEARN ANYTHING WITH UNGARO? Geez, Louise. She even tweeted that she needs more followers to get the word out about it.
Follow Lindsay! You read that right. She needs MORE followers! You know, because 250,538 just doesn't cut it!
It's your call. Here are the sketches. WWD reports that the average price point will be between $100- $150.
"Yes, I AM a designer. Picking buttons is hard work!"
Oh my gosh, you guys! Look at the grown up furniture I'm getting!
Hubs and I got an Ansager table on Craigslist a couple weeks ago and we just ordered these chairs last night from Amazon and Overstock. I'm so excited that after three years in Austin our house is finally, finally, finally taking on an aesthetic and is starting to feel like home.
Gosh, it seems like only yesterday when Hubs and I were eating dinner on the floor of our crummy apartment using an upside down cardboard box as a table! I want to do a special little shout-out to Hubs' mom and her husband for the super sweet Christmas gift that allowed us to buy all this grown up furniture. Thank you!
