All About Blue

I have absolutely no idea when my obsession with cobalt/cerulean blue started, but I just recently added a new item to that collection: the pleather moto jacket from Forever 21 as seen on the model below. I can already tell it will be worn when I'm feeling ecstatic or when I feel blue *hehehe*. What is it about this hue that makes it stand out? Does it evoke images of the seaside, or does it remind one of royalty?  Either way, it is such a lovely color, and goes well with most things. Or maybe that's just a lie I keep telling myself so I have an excuse to wear my blue Warby Parker glasses everyday? ;) How about you, is it a yay or nay for this hue of blue? (yes, I made them rhyme hehehe)

Upping their game: Ugg Australia

Yes, that beautiful black boot below is from UGG Australia. After shunning their bulky, pricey, hairless Chewbacca feet-shaped boots (known for adorning and warming up the toes of college girls in their matching North Face jackets, skinnies/black tights, and a steaming cup of Starbucks coffee in one hand and iPhone in another; no offense to Chewbacca, and to those said girls because those boots are indeed very warm), I just learned of their newer, sleeker, classier styles like the Ophira shown below. But the price tag is still too high for my median salary, and so I turn to hours of swimming through the Clearance section of my beloved DSW, Nordstrom Rack and Rugged Warehouse in the hopes of finding a similar pair. My wallet stops shivering from fear, and my credit cards are safe. Given a gift card though (the Polyvore creation below is my entry to their contest, which you can join here: Live Your Moment: UGG Contest) I'll happily buy the Elsa, which looks warm, comfy and very much snow-proof (although it looks more like something that Anna would wear hehehe). In the meantime, I'll happily wait for the weather to cool down a bit more until I can finally start wearing the $30 pair of camel brown leather boots by Naturalizer that I scored from Rugged Warehouse (which normally retails at $200).
