New Favorites!

Ive definitely done some amazing shopping this summer, I went out for dinner the other week and wore all of my favorite pieces at once!
(BCBG blazer and sequined bag, Gap top, Ralph Lauren Necklace, Jeffrey Campbell Tardy boots)
 I am so in love with this blazer. I feel so skinny in it, and every time I put it on, I am thrilled that it fits. Wore with old jeans, a new favorite tee shirt ( bought in two colors) and the sickest bag ever. I have so much fun with this bag because it is a super easy way to incorporate sequins into daily wear; I am trying to not wear it too much with the fear that the sequins may start coming off. These boots are so comfortable, I know I am going to wear them into the ground!

Oldie but Goodie

I always love pulling out my Hermes Kelly for a day or two; its one of those pieces that I love wearing so much, but try to too often in the name of fashion preservation. I still cant believe I own this bag
(French Connection shirt, Hermes bag, Pour la Victoire boots, Social Collision jeans, Antique necklace)
When I had my Bar Mitzvah over five years ago, I had two {or more} requests for my parents, which included a purple Tallis, or prayer shawl, and a huge gold Jewish star necklace. I got the tallis, but not the gangster-rapper necklace....until this past spring when I was in Israel and stumbled upon this gen in an antique shop. Its totally absurd and I love it. Paired with my most oddly colored shirt and boots from seasons ago. All for now, I need to pack for a quick trip to Canada!

Baby's First Time Out!

What I wore the other week to take my friend out to dinner for her birthday; I was totally pumped to take my Jeffrey Campbell Tardy boots out for a spin!
(Versace x H&M top, vintage silk bowtie, Perry Ellis belt, Regina Bag, Rush my Denis and Charles bracelet, Jeffrey Campbell boots)
  I went to work in this with flat boots and changed into heels when we went to dinner. I love the graphic simplicity of the all black and white palate. I was petrified to send this shirt to the dry cleaner because of the metal tips on the collar; thankfully it came back the other day in perfect condition. I was thrilled to pull out my Regina leather tote for this outfit. It was one of my first handbag splurges and it just shows that if you invest in good pieces they will last forever. I think this will definitely be one of the purses coming to school with me. All for now, its time for watermelon and Family Guy

A Need to State the Obvious

Ok, lets just say it; I bought the Jeffrey Campbell knockoff of the Chloe "Doc Martins" from seasons back. I would also like to say, perhaps in vain, that the designer inspiration was not in fact the reason I purchased them.  A few weeks back, I put in a massive order to Urban outfitters which included my new favorite Adidas Samba sneakers, the caramel leather boots with wooden platforms (to the right of the Jeffrey Campbells), and the Jeffrey Campbell Tardy boots....but in floral satin. I don't know what ever possessed me, but when I unwrapped them I knew I had made a mistake. I also ordered the Night Lita boot.
I loved these boots so much, but sadly, they are only available in distressed leather, and frankly, I couldn't justify spending full price for a pair of shoes that look already worn. This is what brings me back to the Tardy boot. When I looked past the heinous floral satin, I fell in love with the sturdy wedge and platform. I returned the majority of my order and immediately placed a new order for the Tardy boots in black leather. Ive already worn them twice and I couldn't be happier!

A Celebration is in Order!

(BCBG jacket, Gap top, gifted vintage neck cuff, Kate Spade bag, French Connection patent brogues)
Lets start off by addressing the title of this post; I can finally, after years of intense desire, fit into BCBG clothes! Slipping into this black blazer at the BCBG store was like being in a dream; I never thought Id get to wear their clothes! I am getting so close to the Weight Watchers 25 pound goal...hopefully next week.
I kept the rest of the outfit super simple and monochromatic; I did actually like wearing watching shoes and handbags. Its fun to visit such an old and antiquated rule. This picture was taken right before I sat down and unbuttoned my pants to the tune of all you can eat sushi; go figure! Have a great week, I think I'm going to wear this blazer again tomorrow

Avoiding Pizza

(Gap Denim shirt, Tripp NYC jeans, Sam Edelman boots, BCBG sequined purse)
 Not too much time for a post now, but I found this picture among the rest of my graduation albums and thought, what the hell. Essentially this outfit was from the week in my life where I wore really, really boring outfits to enhance the enjoyment I was getting from wearing my amazing BCBG purse. Speaking of that bag, I should really switch back to it! UM..yeah thats about it, have a good week!

Striped Top; Night

(H&M striped top, sequin infinity scarf from HotTopic, Social Collision jeans, Pour la Victoire boots, Denis and Charles silver bracelet, Paradox leather bag) 
I wore this last week to get a casual dinner with a friend. Being that I lived in this top last week, I was already wearing it. I swapped shorts for jeans, and completed the obligatory front tuck. I shoved my necessities into this adorable tiny purse, and threw on blue heels in the vain attempt to look more interesting than someone at the next table wearing black heels. More importantly, I need to remember to wear these heels during the day so that the blue snakeskin is more openly visible. The sequin infinity scarf was found under my bed from freshman year of high school. It is yet again one of those pieces that would look horrendous in any color besides black; I felt like such a rebel wearing black with such a navy-driven outfit. Worn with yet another Rush my Charles and Denis bracelet and my go to Kenneth Cole belt. All for now, I'm off to a party!

Striped Top; Day

(H&M top, Versace x H&M silk scarf, Gap pants, Lucky Brand shoes, Cynthia Rowley bag)
I have been LIVING in this top for the past week. I had bought multiples of it in different colors; but with my pre-weight watchers shape, I couldn't really rock these tops. I really love this green and navy colorway; it is unbelievably versatile. I wore this outfit to go outlet shopping with some friends over the weekend.
 So on to the bag. I bought it for myself during my graduation fueled handbag frenzy. I brought it home, my mom loved it, and as a gift of appreciation for my party I bought it for her in pink. Long story short, she took mine and i jacked it back for the week. It is such an awesome bag. All for now, I need to go to bed; I am exhausted from giving blood today!

Pawtucket

(Hawkins McGill vest, Gap top, Ecote boots, Denis and Charles bracelet, vintage and gifted necklaces, Michael Kors bag)
I wore this last weekend when touring around Pawtucket and Providence with a few friends. I bought multiples of this shirt; it is the perfect basic to wear under vests and blazers. I paired it with my favorite vest from freshman year, the tightest jeans I own and the comfiest booties ever! I cant brag enough about these boots I am considering getting a backup pair. This bag has been the best impulse buy ever; I am so psyched to own it and the quality of the leather is unbelievable. Remember when I got my first Denis and Charles bracelet? Ive since acquired the luggage one I'm wearing in the above picture and one in silver with gold hardware. I picked them up at the Dressing Room Boutique in Wallingford ct. They are my new obsession! All for now, I need to wake up early for work

Chillin in my Driveway

Happy fourth of July! I'm still practicing my running poses

(Marc Jacobs shirt, M. Haskell necklace, Charles david clutch, Ecote boots)
I wore this out lat night to get Mexican food with some friends. I let myself eat whatever I want on Tuesday nights after weight watchers. I really, really love fat girl Tuesdays. Notice anything different? Down 22 pounds; suck on that. Anyways, back to the outfit. I bought this top at the Marc Jacobs store in Province town when I was staying at a friends house. I was getting dressed last night, realized that I was wearing the same outfit that I had worn a few days before. I had actually forgotten about this shirt and was SO excited when I found it! I paired it with a feather collar that I got as a graduation present and my new favorite heels. I wore these all weekend and they are unbelievably comfortable; prepare to see these a lot in the future.
Kisses! Now go have a hotdog
