I LOVE FASHION!  I get so inspired throughout the year through fashion and style choices!  The feeling after purchasing an amazing new piece to add to my collection of accessories or my ever growing wardrobe is like no other!  :)  Especially when that piece becomes a staple for years to come!  I've highlighted the top 10 additions I made to my wardrobe this year that I still can't get enough of!  Just looking at this post makes me giddy!  Enjoy!  :)

1.This dress has become my ultimate go-to alternative to the LBD!  The girlie sheerness, perfect shape, and classic color make it easy to change up with accessories!

2.Holy comfort!  I adore the chambray shirt!  I wear it with a chunky crystal necklace and red skinnys, over a maxi and tied in a knot in the front, or layered under a leather cropped jacket with a fun scarf and top knot in my hair!  :)
3.  What a great statement necklace!  I'm loving the geometric shape and the colors are to die for!  Great over a basic T, under a silk colored shirt, or a bold sheath dress!

4.  I have a love-hate relationship with leopard print, but this flowy, loose, three-quartered sleeve cardi is 100% LOVE!  It is the perfect sexy and sophisticated topper to any outfit.  Super modern and casual chic!

 5.  This perfect pop clutch is a great burst of excitement to any day!  I rock it when shopping the city during the day, for an evening out for martini's, or to hold all my necessities at a wedding!
 6. My newest obsession! I can't get enough of this sheer perfection! It's every adjective I love in fashion all rolled into one! Purple, unique, comfortable, sheer, sexy, romantic, easy to accessories, perfect with skinnies! 
 7.  ROSE GOLD ROCKS!  I wear this beautiful men's inspired watch with a twist of rose gold beauty with everything!  Classy and sassy!  :)
 8.  This chunkified infinity scarf in dusty sea blue is to die for!  Such a great neutral blue to grab on my way out the door to match my ever changing daily mood and style!  Also a great color to take you from Fall through Winter and into Spring!
 9.  House of Harlow must make an appearance on my lists always!  These glasses make me happy!  The retro cat eye and black/brown leopard print is eye catching with a fierce dress or a perfect match for your everyday jeans and chunky sweater!  ADORE!
10.  I just rocked these on New Years Eve!  They seam to be the perfect pairing to any over sized top I'm ever wondering what to wear underneath!  These pleather leggings with slimming cotton side panels take any outfit to the next

What are your favorite fashion additions of 2012?  Grab them and continue creating your own Style In The City......in 2013!
