Here We Go Again
The end of summer. Easy & relaxed dressing is on it’s way out. #NYFW is starting this week and it signifies the beginning of breaking out the layers again and thinking about new ways of wearing classic pieces that are already in my closet. As much as I love ‘back to school’ shopping it can feel so gluttonous. I have a goal of at making it work with what I own already. I have a jam-packed closet full of clothes that get worn once every six months and another full rack in storage. But let’s hang on to summer dressing a lil bit longer; I’m not ditching my cut-offs just yet.
These are very old Steve Madden suede wedges that only look yellow in the #hipstamatic shot above; which is perfect because it looks great with the yellow & teal OPI Shatter pedicure.
I have on a silk and beaded Line + Dot top with Joe’s Jeans that I cut myself. The pendant is a vintage lapis & coral pin from my Aunt Sharon; it’s one of my most treasured pieces.
Can’t stop with the bird rings. L to R: Forever 21, Spitafield’s market score, Echo of the Dreamer. Arm party c/o Shashi and friendship bracelets, YSL Muse bag, vintage belt and KBL sunglasses.

I am not a morning person. I wish I was. I really, really do. As more often than not, I was running late. I had a fully booked day of running around pulling samples from showrooms. I needed to be ready in five minutes. Like five minutes ago. My silk romper c/o Rebecca Minkoff did the trick.
Up and out the door in 20 minutes flat. Threw my hair in a bun, red lipstick applied, Tom Ford Nikitas on my peepers, vintage butterfly belt and my leopard Timeless shoes with Melissa flats on stand by in my Muse bag.
I know everyone is beginning to think about fall layering again but I love the ease of summer dressing. Nothing extra except accessories.

The blur of the city.
One of those night when you think you are heading home to cook dinner but one too many cocktails and then the mood to stay out has taken over. It was a beautiful, windy night and I had B take a million hipstamatic snaps until his phone died.
I have this ultra soft cotton maxi dress c/o Elan but of course, for me it’s just a bit too maxi. I have this trick where rather than hanging the dress up I twist it up and tie it in knots to get that major crinkly look. But alas, I am still just a bit too wee. So instead of rocking the platforms, I just knotted the skirt in the back. It’s a sexy halter dress that is not appropriate for work so I layered it with a loose tee c/o Line + Dot that I hacked to give it a cropped effect. My summer shoes of choice this season tends to be my Melissa’s because it’s like wearing slippers. It’s all about proportions when it comes to being small. They are lots of looks and trends I would love to wear but if you can’t make it work for your body then it’s best you just pass on that style and move on to the next one.
Bag: YSL Muse, Arm candy: friendship bracelets and sparkles c/o Shashi. Oh yeah, dinner was at Republic. But this isn’t really a food blog.
