Metallic Mood

Raise your hand if you like shiny things. Go on, don’t be shy. You know you want to. I’m raising mine too. I love a good metallic statement piece. They go with everything! Whether its jewelry, a handbag or metallic shoe you really can’t go wrong.  (more…)

Spring Style: Denim on Denim

I feel like I’m going through a slight style evolution right now. Denim has always been one of the last things I ever pick up when I shop…until recently. Typically, I avoid buying jeans because finding a great pair of jeans is much like searching for the perfect bra- it’s practically impossible! As real as the struggle is I have really opened up my palette for denim and I’m not just talking pants. Lately I’m drawn to all kinds of denim styles and there’s so much out there. I’m crushing on fringe, embroidery and beading as well as the classics.

I love this Rachel Roy outfit combo. The top is really easy to take from work to weekend and you know how much I love a style that does overtime.

When I do pick out a pair of jeans I like to go for a distressed look. This always gives an instant edge to an outfit. I love how soft this pair is so much that I’m contemplating buying the other two colors! I’d gladly welcome those additions to my closet.

Take a look below for all my Spring denim picks, including the ones I’m wearing.

Hope this satisfies your denim fix!

The Ten Dollar Dress

Fall so far has been absolutely beautiful! With the exception of a few rainy days, it’s been sunny and mild…perfect for days at the farmers market. I love picking out fresh fruits and veggies from the local farmers markets in the area. One of my favorite locations is Gerardi’s in Staten Island. This is actually sort of far from home but since my sister lives in the area, I go there sometimes when I’m visiting.

They have the cutest wall next door painted with flowers so of course I took this moment as a photo op for my latest bargain find from Forever 21: the $10 knit dress.

I was perusing F21’s site a few weeks ago searching for a new pair of faux leather leggings-which I practically live in during the Autumn-Winter months-when I stumbled upon this mock neck knit striped dress. At first I hesitated because there’s always cause for speculation when something is only $10 online, and final sale no less. After adjusting my cart for a good twenty minutes I decided to bite the bullet and try this little number out.

The fit turned out to be great and the fabric is light and breathable enough for in between weather. The mock neck is also totally on trend and season appropriate. To complete the look I grabbed my black caged Zara heels from a past sale. Best of all, this look can easily take me from work to drinks. I love an outfit that can put in overtime.
