2012 Recap Pt.2

From On December 27, 2012

StyleLust Pages Short Dreams

My Super sunnies were a favorite in 2012. Perfect for sunny Miami weather. You’ll also see that I had a major love for high-waisted pleated shorts this year too. (Short Dreams)

StyleLust Pages Keep It Casual

Sequins during the day are a must sometimes. (Keep It Casual)

My menswear addiction was on a whole new level. I started buying men’s bottoms in addition to men’s sweaters. (Menswear Addict)

StyleLust Pages Metal Dressing

Mixed metallic silver with gold accessories. Loved the combination. One of my favorite looks of 2012. (Metal Dressing)

Ok, more PINK! (Pink Lady)

The ‘Bad-Ass’ spiked leather clutch hit my Etsy shop. View the post HERE and shop the clutch HERE.

StyleLust Pages Tribal Love

This look DEFINTELY makes my top 5 for 2012. Wearing a scarf as a top. Cobalt blue looks sooo good with black and white prints (Tribal Love).

love cortnie aztec clutch

Which is why I introduced the ‘Aztec’ clutch not long after I posted that look. Get the clutch HERE.

A thrifted pair of polka dot gaucho pants soon became this (more pleated high-waisted shorts). I started thrifting more often and loved the pieces I would end up finding. (Striped & Dots)

Wearing a printed strapless dress as a skirt with a men’s button-up top. (Plain As Black & White)

Shopping in H&M during the summer and left with a skirt from the kid’s department that later turned in this (Kiddie Pink). Yes, more PINK!

StyleLust Pages 1 year anniv

Love,Cortnie hit its 1 year anniversary mark in early September! Over 300 bags sold during the first year, a few boutiques and online stores carrying them and the brand is still growing. A huge thank you to everyone for their continued support! View the original post HERE.

An abandoned stadium in Miami makes for a fun location for a photo shoot. (Graffiti Central)

C.R.E.A.M. (Dollar Sign)

More vintage pleated, high-waisted shorts. (Candy Pants)

StyleLust Pages Golden Girl

More metallics. Another look in my top 5. This ‘Spotted’ calf hair clutch was one of my favorites this year. View Golden Girl and get the clutch HERE.

StyleLust Pages Off Beat

The ‘Ashleigh’ clutch is the favorite and most sold clutch that I’ve made thus far. View Off Beat and get the clutch HERE.

StyleLust Pages Sweetie

More sequins during the day. And more pink. (Sweetie)

Wearing my long white blazer again, but in cooler temps. (Emerald)

Styling another item for cooler temps. The cobalt blue maxi worked perfectly with this tartan plaid button-up. (Royal Plaid)

StyleLust Pages Torn Levi's & More Dots

Another detail shot. Polka dots, thrifted (and destroyed) vintage Levi’s, suspender tights and a pop pf color (Torn Levi’s & More Dots). Get the clutch of your own color choice HERE.

I got to watch these caterpillars at every stage until they were Monarch butterflies. Amazing.

Isn't Bella adorable??

I look forward to having beef patties every time I visit.
