hitchhiking in velvet




Any aspiring musicians out there are welcome to take the title of today's post and use it as their new name. Go ahead. It's yours.

As for why I look so darn happy in these photos, it was really a matter of jumping around to avoid cars, frogger style. Good thing the outfit itself is pretty comfy. I seriously cannot stop wearing this velvet dolman cut top since I got it courtesy of ModCloth. It's comfy enough to lounge in, but fancy enough to throw on a pair of heels and dodge traffic in.

What more do you need in life, really?

And before I forget, check out this feature at SheKnows.com about 2010 trend predictions, where little ol' me weighs in on what I think will be everywhere in the coming months. Enjoy and I'd love to hear your thoughts on my pick!

Shirt: Navy blue velvet dolman cut top, courtesy of ModCloth
Jeans: Light rinse skinny jeans, Bullhead brand, PacSun
Shoes: Black platform studded pumps, Steve Madden

P.S. Check back soon. Video post is in the works, folks!

P.P.S. Thanks Joe for catching my typo!
