First off, I want to say thank you for your positive feedback regarding my new do! I am having a lot of fun with it and can style it all different ways. It looks cute brushed forward, to the side and even pinned back with a bobby pin.

Anyway, I mentioned earlier that I did a little photo shoot at Chelsea Piers. Well, here it is! The reason for it is my friend Hattie, founder of the company, Save the Date(ing), is throwing an awesome singles dating event tonight at this cool gallery in Chelsea and I needed to figure out what to wear. Hattie suggested we have a little fun and photograph my chosen outfit. I immediately opted for this red number, which is my favorite and is from Anthropologie.

I also wanted to show how you can easily dress up or dress down an outfit just by changing your accessories. So, you’ll see two different looks…one more casual and one more dressy. I decided to wear this white blazer with black flats to give the bright red dress a more casual look and then slip on some nude patent leather pumps to “chic it up” a bit. Anyway, the event is tonight at 7, and will be a tasting of single malts. Yum! So stay tuned for my report back on how it went, and if I met any cuties!

Pretty.

5557-1Loving this sweet dress from ModCloth.

Pretty in print.

April 27, 2009

img_1320Saturday was my dear friend N’s birthday party and the theme was 1970’s. I am loving N’s dress—doesn’t she look so pretty on her special day? Even though we didn’t exactly go all out with costumes, we did opt for bright, loud florals and bold prints. In a rush to find something to wear, I skimmed F21 earlier in the day and found this dress for only $25, which is now my new favorite spring/summer maxi. To rev up the 70’s vibe, I wore lots of gold bracelets and rings, parted my hair down the middle, slipped into a pair of wooden platforms and I was ready to roll. All in all, a really fun party! What did you all do this weekend? Do tell! I would love to know! SPxx

Wish List: Sweet finds at Santoki Vintage

Santoki Vintage continues to remain one of my favorite vintage stores on Etsy. Remember all of these hot little items, and these buttery leather flats? Well, I was bittersweetly reminded of this fact today as I perused one lovely dress after another, and drooled over many pairs of polished leather boots. Such great finds and everything always looks in great condition, plus the prices are affordable as well!

I think this boyfriend blazer paired with this flowery dress and these lace-up granny boots would create an interesting dynamic when worn all together. The no-nonense style of the jacket and shoes would balance out the bold, floral print of the dress, creating a funky yet still very feminine look. I am also digging these gorgeous riding boots, and this pretty striped jumper!

Ruffled.

41291_in_dlDress: Marc by Marc Jacobs

n500011393_734550_12671Me at my best friend’s wedding in Hawaii.

I was chatting with my friend S today and she was telling me about her best friend’s wedding she is attending in Mexico. Her question was whether or not this dress from Marc by Marc Jacobs was appropriate or “good enough” to wear to the ceremony. I told her I think it will work perfectly and is a lovely choice for the occasion. I love anything with a ruffle, and the color reminded me of the dress I wore to my best friend’s wedding last March. What do you think of the Marc Jacob’s dress? Are you a fan of ruffles or are you still on the fence? Do tell, I would love to know!

I love me some Larimeloom

I am currently coveting this gorgeous homemade grey corsetted bustier. I love how it looks layered over that dark gray tank. So sexy and enticing, yet classy at the same time.

Her grey off-the-shoulder dress just makes me drool.

Good morning my Lovelies, and HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE! Any hot plans to paint the town red tonight, or are you going to have a nice, quiet night in? Are you dressing yourselves to the nines, or opting for slippers and pajamas? I would love to know! Also, what do you think about house parties vs. bar or club parties? I myself, will be popping around town to a few different house parties before finally settling somewhere downtown at a low-key bar with friends. But, we will see because you never know where the night might go!

P.S. I love this girl’s outfit…the layered camis, the braided belt, and of course, her nerd chic glasses. Let’s be honest, we all know how I feel about that awesome trend…

Love to you all my dears, and I wish you a very happy, special and safe night! Cheers! SPxx

Santoki Vintage: I want, I want, I want!

il_430xn44143882Vintage Black Leather HIGH WAIST Mini Skirt Belt Straps, $59

il_430xn44080832Vintage 1980s MATTE Sequins Mini Dress, $85

il_430xn41985489Vintage Pink Romper, $34

I  first read about Santoki Vintage on Joanna’s blog, A Cup of Jo. I love all the unique pieces they offer. Here are a few items that caught my eye. I am loving the leather skirt. So edgy and flirty…perfect for a night out dancing with the girls. I am also eyeing this sequin dress as a possible New Years Eve option. What do you think? And, the third item is just so bright and fun. Perfect for spring, but wearable in winter if paired with gray tights and knee-high flat boots.

Would you wear any of these pieces? I would love to know! SPxx
