Forgive me for not getting this post up sooner, I've been quite productive the past month and it doesn't look like my schedule is easing up, a breather would be nice. At least I'm finally settling down at my new job, I find that working in an office now has its benefits -- I can sneak on the Internet to do a little blogging here and there. Unfortunately, it only happens for a few seconds between five minute intervals.
Enough of my pity rants, lately, I've been drawing my inspiration from street style. You know, Nicole just isn't working her thing anymore (I still have hope post-pregnancy P.S. CONGRATS ON THE BABY GIRL!) , Lindsay wears that unholy tights + boots+ and sweater combination every shot I see of her, Mischa is facing jail time, and Bilson just isn't on the streets anymore.
I know that technically winter is over in terms of fashion, but it's still chilly and it looks like it's staying that way for a while. While you shouldn't waste your money stocking up on these items (being that winter will end in a month or so), you should heavily consider sporting these chic staples.

I've honestly found a new infatuation with high, chunky, towering, platform heels. The more architectural the silhouette, the hardest I lust . I first fell in love with chunky shoes when I saw it overpower Rachel Bilson's petite frame in Teen Vogue. But now, it's gaining my utmost respect. Not only am I a die-heart fan of platforms, but I get weak to the knees seeing it paired up with tights. It's time to take my infatuation to another level and upgrade to high knee socks. To the right is a pair of high-knee socks from Topshop who also carry more varieties; I'm loving the grey hue and ribs especially on Sarah Jessica Parker on the set of Sex and the City the movie!
I love how chic the oversized clutch is. Personally, I don't find it practical since I carry my entire life on my shoulders and clutching just doesn't cut it for me. However, when I see pictures of other people carrying oversized clutches, it almost makes it worth it to try it, despite the fact that I'll be suffering and frustrated all day being that my hands aren't free.
Mens wear has been loitering the scene for a while: oxford shoes, vest, and blazers. While the others are still quite popular, I personally feel as though blazers are hitting its prime. You shouldn't wear too many men inspired wear in one outfit for it'll look as though you're trying too hard. But maybe it's the fact that I am required to dress a little more business like and it encouraged my lust for blazers. Or maybe it's the blunt fact that structured, boxy jackets look fantastic over anything loose and grungy. A perfect combination if you ask me, take notes from Natasha -- gorgeous!
That's all for the winter necessities, unfortunately for me and lucky for you, the spring staples is coming soon. I've officially gone through an entire year; I remember my first 'The Spring Staples'! Can you believe it? Come February, I've had That's Chic for an entire YEAR. I haven't even hit 100 posts yet! What should I do my my 1 year anniversary?
