This is probably the lightest outfit I’ve ever posted. The only fully black thing I’m wearing are the patent leather boots. But it’s still a very me outfit – mixed textures and a cool print. Sometimes I surprise myself when it comes to fashion. I can’t always explain why I want to wear certain things. I have been wanting a teddy coat for a while though. …

Easy Luxe: Printed Blouse & Black Velvet Leggings

Confession: this is a total copycat outfit. Last year I saw a girl on the street who I thought looked so cool. She wore black velvet leggings, ankle boots, leather jacket and chiffon blouse flowing out from underneath it. Even my boyfriend said her outfit looked like something I would wear. I think it’s what really triggered my velvet craze. Her leggings looked so fresh after …

The Choker Sweater

Sweater weather. It’s never something I’ve looked forward to. I’ll always prefer summer clothes, but I’m actually enjoying this season’s knits and their details. Like this choker sweater from Sammydress. The choker looks cool, and it’s also super cozy. It’s essentially a built-in scarf that never gets in the way. And I love the zippers on the sleeves. Somehow, I’ve made peace with the approaching …

Arctic Monkeys Tee & Over The Knee Boots

Have you ever had a type of clothing that you used to wear all the time but then stopped? For me it’s the band tee. When I first started going to concerts I always bought them. Today a lot of people seem to wear band tees for the logo or the vintage look. Or Metallica has more fans than I thought. I get that, but …

Hey guys! Today I want to share a couple of changes I’m making to the blog, and tell you how you can win the pretty handmade ring pictured above. From now on I’ll only be publishing weekly outfit posts (on Mondays). So no more Thursday inspiration posts. That doesn’t mean the end of fashion inspo on Looking Glass though.

If I were a scientist, I think I’d be a geologist. Ever since I was little I’ve had a thing for rocks and precious stones. The first time I went into a gem store it was just as exciting as going to a candy store. It amazes me that they come in so many different forms that are all beautiful. And there’s so much you …
