Holiday Party Ready

Dress: Free People Jacket: Margiela x H&M, Hat: Zara

 I always have a hard time figuring out what to wear when the holidays come around since I normally dress pretty casually when I go out and I don't like the idea of buying event specific outfits. I usually try to find one super versatile party dress that will carry me though a few different situations.
This black + nude lacy looking mini dress is exactly what I had in mind. It's subtle but has a great texture that makes it more dimensional than the usual lbd. It also has nice elbow length sleeves (even though I have them hidden in the picture) for when you need to be a little more covered up.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season. I'm off to Florida in about a week and I can't wait!

The New Museum

Shirt: Mango, Jeans: Free People, Belt: Vintage, Bag: Theyskens' Theory, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban


Yes it's been a while and I know it's not even worth mentioning at this point since I so regularly abandon this blog for a month at a time. I blame it on the fact that I moved a few weeks ago and I'm still not even completely unpacked.

I went to The New Museum of Contemporary Art today. The weather was perfect for just wandering around outside and taking in a nice view of the city. One of my favorite ways to spend a Sunday.

p.s. It's hard to tell but yes I cut my hair.

Love at first sight

Blouse: Mango, Jeans: Rag & Bone, Boots: Rag & Bone, Bag: Theysken's Theory

The first time I saw these jeans was at Bergdorf Goodman while I was shopping with my salesperson from work and I immediately knew I had to save up (and sell a few things) to get them. As much as I don't like the saying; I have to say that they are just so "me".

Summer Whites

Shirt: Theory, Shorts: Brandy&Melville, Boots: Rag & Bone, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban, Bag: Theyskens' Theory

I bought this Theyskens' Theory cross strap messenger bag on ebay recently and I'm loving the design. I'd been wanting a lighter weight bag for summer and this one is classic but with just enough detail to make it interesting.

p.s. I updated my blog shop here.

I'm really liking the whole dip-dye trend for this summer, especially when it comes to denim. It goes perfectly with flowy printed silk tops (another summer favorite).

Top: Theyskens' Theory, Jeans: Siwy, Bag: Alexander Wang, Boots: Rag & Bone

I've been wearing this top almost nonstop since I bought it a few weeks ago.
I love when I find something that is exactly what I want to wear right now and also just happens to be on sale.

Sleeveless blouse: Barney's, Jeans: J Brand, Boots: Ksubi, Bag: Alexander Wang "Donna"

I feel so unprepared for this ninety degree weather we've been having. I feel like I have this problem every summer, but I can't help being surprised at how few short sleeve/sleeveless tops I own.

Outfit Experiment


Jacket: R13, Top: Theyskens' Theory, Shorts: Acne, Boots: Rag & Bone, Bag: Alexander Wang, Jewelry: Pamela Love

I've always liked putting outfits together on Polyvore. Maybe I'll post these collages more often now that I know how hard it is to take outfit pictures during the week :)

Three Day Weekend

Blouse:Theyskens' Theory, Boots: Rag + Bone, Bag: Alexander Wang, Sunglasses: Ray Ban 

 It was finally warm enough over this long weekend to wear my Theyskens' Theory blouse as a tunic. I bought it on sale at an outlet but didn't expect to be wearing it so soon. Now I just need the perfect pair of sandals to complete my summer uniform.

Jacket: Maison Scotch, Tank: T by Alexander Wang, Jeans: Free People, Boots: Ksubi

The last few hot and sunny days have really put me in the mood to dress in a slightly more "bohemian" way for lack of a better word. I'm thinking no more all black outfits for a while.

Maybe I'm a little bit too into contrast sleeve jackets. I'm just a sucker for mixing fabrics and textures.

Shopping Small

Cardigan: secondhand Rachel Comey, Black Jacket: Rodebjer, Shirt: vintage, Jeans: UO, Boots: Rachel Comey

Lately I’ve been finding myself gravitating towards less mainstream brands and stores whenever I feel the need to go shopping. Whether it’s in store or online I really appreciate having a mix of high end and local designer clothes to choose from rather than the usual chain store brands.

Even when I’m in the mood to just window shop I would rather wander around a neighborhood like Williamsburg and find random boutiques than go to H&M or Zara in a mall. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that I’ve been making an effort to save up for classic investment pieces and then building up the rest of my wardrobe with vintage/independent designers. And let's face it, nobody wants to have the exact same items in their closet as the girl next to them.

Since I enjoy online shopping as much as the next twenty-something girl; I want to share with you guys a contest being held on The prize is a $1000 giftcard to

All you have to do to enter is like on facebook and submit a short video response saying why you should win. The deadline to enter is March 12.

Good luck!

Jacket: Theory, Sweater: UO, Jeans: seven, Boots: Rachel Comey

As you can see I wasn't kidding when I said I've been into the color olive recently. I even decided to mix two clashing shades in one outfit lol.

I've been wanting a pair of Rachel Comey boots after repeatedly seeing them on the blog Blushing Ambition and I finally found a pair on sale. I highly recommend this style if you're considering getting a pair. They are super comfortable and well made.

Over the weekend I went to Williamsburg and picked up this Theory jacket ($40), a Rachel Comey cardigan ($30), and my favorite buy of the day...a pair of fleece lined leggings ($7). I love getting a good deal secondhand.

I was in the need for some retail therapy this weekend, so I picked up this Dior highlighting powder I've been wanting for a few years now. I could never really justify spending so much on a product that's not "essential", but I finally caved today since I had an unused gift card from my birthday last month.
It's funny how sometimes all it takes is something sparkly and pretty to lift your mood.

Leather Sleeves

Jacket: Maison Scotch, Sweater: UO, Jeans: sevenforallmankind, Boots: Acne

Leather sleeved jackets are nothing new but I always find myself passing on the standard blazer with leather sleeves even though I like the look.

I'm glad I waited for the recent online sales because I found a new favorite jacket. I love the military style body mixed with the black leather sleeves. It's not a huge departure from the typical blazer but I like how it's just a bit more casual and worn in looking. I'm also a huge fan of olive mixed with black this winter.
