Current Obsession // Over-the-Knee Boots

Every now and then I feel the urge to dress like an '80s hooker, and there's nothing like a good over-the-knee boot to get that Pretty Woman look juuuust right. I got this Guess pair on sale after eyeing them for months--the gold detail on the sole and leather/suede combination (plus the half-off sale price!) sealed the deal for me. Plus, they're a good investment: over-the-knee boots were all over the Fall runways: Top: Cynthia Rowley,...

Muse-ings // Sassy Keys and A Dose of Gold

1. A sassy key that truly expresses the way I feel when I lose my keys // 2. Finally got around to seeing American Hustle and am now actively stalking Ms. Ross’ Studio 54 style // 3.  Loose layers with a heavy dose of gold feels just right // 4. I will let this relatively small yet spa-like bathroom serve as inspiration for a thorough cleaning this weekend. Wish me luck! Follow me on Tumblr and...

Fashion Week(s) // Fall 2014 Faves

Fashion Month roared in like a lion and out like a lamb wearing Chanel sneaker boots. Fall 2014 was a continuation of last season’s trends (abstract colorblocking, worldly prints, etc.) combined with an abundance of luxurious coats and buttery leather thigh high boots. Just for kicks, here's a highly edited selection of favorites: NEW YORK Prabal Gurung’s drapey layers and muted tones; Slouchy windowpane prints at 3.1 Phillip Lim, Juan Carlos Obando does American Hustle; Insouciant wallpaper...

Photo Diary // Flaming Donuts and Fruit Trees

I know I’ve been MIA (thanks to loooong hours at work and an evil sinus infection), but I’ve been around! Here’s what I’ve been up to: Scarfing down flaming donuts (YUM) with sugar-glazed abandon; Marvelling at the fact that there are places where fruit is growing on trees (with leaves on them!)  in February; Watching feeding time with the fishies at the Newport Aquarium; Lusting after the Manolos I pulled for a photo shoot #WantneedmusthavetoobrokeAARGH; Takin’...

Current Obsession // In the Grays

My love of neutrals has been pretty well documented, especially when it comes to my favorite: gray. That perfect, goes with everything, not-too-dark-but-not-too-light color that’s not really a color. I was digging through my closet when I realized that I currently own 5 gray sweaters (I ONLY want to wear sweaters lately thanks to this horrible PolarBearVortexRollercoaster weather) in varying shades and weights, and I'm not the only one: Images via Lori Stuckman, weheartit, Golestaneh street...

Shopping // Sales Galore!

While I'm technically focusing on making the most of what's already in my closet, the sales going on right now are just too good to ignore. I figure indulging in a bit of discounted post-holiday shopping actually SAVES money (just go with me on this one) and helps support local businesses. A few of my favorite opportunities for retail therapy: Sloane Deep Sale - 50% -80% off seasonal merchandise. Be sure to check out the racks...

Muse-ings // Mermaids and Tablescapes

1// As a child of the ‘80s, anything that reminds me of Darryl Hannah in Splash or the mystery mermaid lover from Kool and the Gang’s “Cherish” video warms my heart. 2// I love the simplicity of a boldly striped shoe. 3// This is the best, most Parisian version of curb appeal I’ve seen in a long time. 4// Now that I understand how much work goes into prop styling, this eclectic tabletop arrangement is even more impressive.
