Topshop Airtex Crop Tee

Oh-em-gee you guys, I think it’s going to be crop top weather in NYC from now on. Well, okay so maybe you’ll have to carry around a light jacket with you. But still — the prospect of expanding my outfit selection to include crop top is welcomed news. My current favorite and latest edition to my wardrobe is this airtex crop tee from Topshop. I love the luxe sportswear feel that looks good dressed up with a faux leather skirt, but I can also pair it with high waisted jeans for a more casual look.

Pop of Orange

April 20, 2016

Spring is fully on, which means it’s time to incorporate pops of color into my wardrobe. Well, not like I’m color adverse or anything, but it just always feels like when the change of season rolls around, there’s suddenly an urgency to not don so much black and gray. This skirt is the perfect transitioning piece for early spring: the bold orange is a nice change of pace from my usual black and gray, and it’s long enough to protect my legs from the sometime random cold spring gust of wind.

Mickey & Distressed Denim

April 18, 2016

Topshop Vintage Mickey Mouse Sweatshirt

Finally! This weekend’s weather has been so gorgeous and actually feeling like spring. One of the first days where I actually walked around most of the day carrying my jacket and wondering why I even brought one in the first place. But of course, the April weather being temperamental as it is, as soon as you get away from the sun or feel a strong breeze you feel really grateful that you’ve got a sweatshirt on (maybe that jacket wasn’t a bad idea after all). My days of wearing this Mickey sweatshirt for the season is likely numbered, but you’re not going to hear any complaints from me. I was getting sick of the winter-in-spring weather anyway.

Maison Scotch Faux Fur Open Front Coat

Just when you think Spring is finally here, the universe throws you a 30° weather. On the bright side, it did give me a chance to bust out my Maison Scotch faux fur jacket.

Triple Denim

March 29, 2016

Silver Jeans Suki Skinny

I might have shied from double denim once upon a time, but that was a very long time ago. Now I’m all about embracing the Canadian tux, as people would call it. I thought: why just go double denim, when you can layer and triple it up. And while you’re at it, add a touch of zaniness with the Ripndip lord nermal beanie. Being the committed cat lady that I am, I can never say no to feline themed accessories.

Now let’s get back to the denim for just one second. Can I tell you guys about the skinny suki from Silver Jeans that I just recently discovered. Not only is it in the trendy distressed style that I’m really loving lately, but it’s made from super soft and stretchy materials. I love when looking good and comfort actually go together. In fashion, these things just don’t happen often enough that I’ll take it whenever I can get it. Too bad they don’t make it in black too, because I pretty much want a pair in every shade and color.

Giveaway Friday: Buxom Customizable Eyeshadow Compact Bar

March 25, 2016

Buxom Customizable Eyeshadow Bar
Update: Congratulations to Christy D. on winning this giveaway!

I’m all about the eyeshadow compact bar. Maybe it’s the greediness in me that makes me think: why mess around with a single shadow when you can take the whole lot. But then the next problem usually is: I like four out of the six shade in the palate, but I’m not so crazy about that teal green or that crazy pale frost one that looks good on virtually nobody. If only there’s a way for you to keep only the shadows that you want. With the Buxom customizable eyeshadow compact bar, you can do just that. Better yet, we’re giving it away as part of this round of #GiveawayFriday. One lucky winner will get:

 ♥ Empty Eyeshadow Bar 6-Pan Compact
 ♥ Empty Single Eyeshadow Compact
 ♥ Eyeshadow Bar Singles, in seven colors

Read on to find out the full line-up of eyeshadow colors and how you can win.

Distressed Topped With Mustard

March 16, 2016

Nasty Gal Blazer

I love when outfit pieces make their debut for the first time after being hidden in the closet for so long. This mustard blazer hasn’t seen the light of day for over a year. It’s made from one of those materials thats light and flowy — awesome for light coverage on not-so-cold days, not so great for staying unwrinkled when layered under winter coats. But the weather was finally good enough that I can wear it on its own without having to layer anything extra over it. Pair it with distressed jeans and black pumps, and got myself a winning outfit.

CitySeat

CitySeat

I got to tell you guys about an “accessory” item I just recently discovered: CitySeat. Like the name suggest, CitySeat is a portable foldable sweat proof bike cover that comes in a variety of fun prints. I’m all about “prettying up” every aspect of my wardrobe and accessories, so I figure that should definitely extend to bike seats too.

Express Yourself

Express Flat Front Culottes

Man it’s been a long time since I’ve donned a pair of culottes. I was a little bit hesitant on jumping back on this trend bandwagon, but I just couldn’t resist when I saw this piece from Express. I mean, that vivid color though! My hesitation with culottes has to do with my short height. I always feel that wide-legged pants can drown my 4’11” shorty pants stature and give me that clown-pants vibe. But thankfully all of that could be remedied by a good pair of heels. In this case, I chose to pair the culottes the chunky Ophelia heels from Coach that is still comfortable enough to actually allow me to walk around the city in my newly acquired pants.

Leather & Chambray

March 7, 2016

Madewell Chambray Shirt H&M Skirt

I decided to go a little dark for today’s blog outfit, but I didn’t quite wanted to go all black. Not that I’ve got anything against all black, mind you (sometimes I wonder it’s a requirement to be a New Yorker). So then, rather than going the all black route, I paired my faux leather skirt with a dark denim chambray shirt and an Isabella Fiore bag I lovingly call my “couch upholstery chic” bag. Top all of this with a burgundy lipstick and we have ourselves a dark look that Wednesday Addams would approve.
