Today I went to Best Buy to exchange my Panasonic Lumix FH22 that I got on Black Friday. I could'nt figure it out and I changed my mind about the touch screen so I ended up exchanging it for my Sony Cyber-shot W350.

After Best Buy I went to The Northpark Center to exchange a skirt I bought at UO. Santa Clauses' house was so nice that I had to take a pic.
Sweater: Abercrombie and Fitch
Shoes: Steve Madden gladiator sandals
Necklace: Betsey Johnson
This is an odd sweater I tried on at TJ Maxx. Couldn't decide whether I liked it or not so I took a pic.
This coming Christmas The Grinch came early. I woke up early for Black Friday and went to Best Buy, I then went to The Northpark Center for some shopping. To my surprise The Grinch was there. At the time I didn't know who he was until I looked him up. I found out it was Stefan Karl from "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" The Musical.
Above is the original Grinch and here are the pics I took of the other Grinch. Though now that I see him more, he kinda looks like bigfoot.

The Galleria is one of the places I rarely shop at. I prefer a smaller more easier way to shop. One level floor is all I need. Anyway, here is a post of some of the clothing that I tried on. This first pic is the OOTD.
Blazer: Urban Outfitters
Sandals: Steve Madden
These are the pants I tried on at Zara. They are very comfortable and very easy to put on, however I don't like the price tag: $40. I recently purchased a pair similar to them at Forever21 for $15.
Look at what I found.
There was a baby one too. There was a British chair next to it. You can see it here.
Trends begin, they evolve, and then they fade or simply become a standard. a trend that hasn't been able to be much more than a blip on the radar while in the shadow of military fashion. The trend? Biker chic.
Take Burberry who, with little ceremony, dwindled the military motifs that they've been known for of late down to a few select elements in their S/S 2011 collection. Much of the rest of the collection was biker inspired and infused, so much so that the collection is named Heritage Biker. you can look to spring 2010's colour trends, specifically those for leather, for inspiration.

You may think of biker pants as anything skin tight and black. But again, that's not necessarily so in 2011. Christopher Bailey's leather motorcycle pants for Burberry can grab attention just as well in neutral tones, with mesh side-panels and an exposed, feature zip. As with other elements of the bike chic trend it's all about the detail, and last season's plain leather leggings won't quite cut it. Panels, quilting and padding, and zips all add to the tough yet ultra-slick and modern feel of the neo biker pant, while other thick, skin-hugging materials like neoprene can also work as an alternative to leather.
Leather has never been a fave of mine, which is why i've always avoided it nor even glanced at it. Since i've seen people wearing it as a trend lately, I waned to try it out for myself. I've saved a few pics for reference but you know it's never the same until you try it for yourself. One of the stores I like to shop at is Forever21 and I recently tried on a cute pair of faux leather shorts there. I immediately thought it was too short but I decided to try them out anyway. Since that day I can't stop thinking about them. I didn't purchase them at the time but I will go back and see if I feel the same way. I still won't know how to pair them but I will definetly give them another go.
A few inspirations to look forward to. The first one from the bottom is a Halloween costume that I couldn't resist putting on here. I think it's one of the most amazing fashionable costumes I've seen.
Ring my Bell.

These pictures with the clothing are from a couple weeks ago but I just didnt get around to them. Im not photogenic so I take a ton of pics and these were some of my faves.
I couldn't decide which was the better side, the back or the front. I wore them which ever way I wanted since
