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!

What are you up to this weekend? It is supposed to be 73 degrees here in Manhattan, so I will be at Central Park soaking up sun while playing with my best friend Allison‘s new puppy, Frankie! And speaking of warm weather and playing outside, aren’t these photos so pretty? My friend, Anna Sweet, who is an amazing photographer, took these great shots of her best friend, Candice. I loved them so much that I decided to order myself some prints and frame them. This way I will be able to enjoy the beautiful, yet fleeting cherry blossoms of spring, all year round.

Enjoy your weekend, and always, thanks so much for reading!

Hugs, SPxx

P.S. This is Frankie, and so there is no confusion…she is girl.

The incredible Garance Dore.

As I was perusing all my favorite blogs, I came across these incredible shots from The Sartorialist and Garance Dore, which I just had to share with you. I have loved menswear for quite some time and it seems now, more than ever,  this is its time to be in the spotlight. I think what I love the most is the slightly androgynous look that comes out of a woman wearing men’s clothing. It is such a unique challenge, to pull it off in a way that you still look sexy and like a woman versus just a woman in a man’s clothes. It sounds contradictory, and it is very tricky. However, when done well, the results are pretty fantastic.

The last image is of Garance herself, in an articule that Refinery 29 did on her, regarding street style. The photos of her are amazing. To see more, check it out here!

What do you think of menswear on women? Do you think it is sexy o do you prefer more feminine accents, like ruffles and bows? Do share, I would love to know your thoughts! SPxx

Street Style: Lace, and Cherry Blossoms

April 16, 2009

streetstyle-lacecherryblossomsHello hello! Sorry for the delay in posts…I am currently working on transferring all my material over to my new domain/site, which I will unveil shortly! So, today on my way back from yoga, I was walking behind this adorable girl. I instantly noticed her white lace slip against her black tights, and as she walked under the blossoming cherry trees, I was taken with how her lace, and the white petals resembled each other so beautifully. I ran up behind her, probably freaking her out in the process, and asked to take a photo. This is what I came up with. Lovely, don’t you think? Do you have cherry blossom trees where you live? How do you feel about slips as dresses? SPxx

Stylish in Stripes

April 3, 2009

1279skstripewalkwebI’ll say it. I am absolutely jazzed about this outfit that I saw on The Sartorialist. Not only is it simple and chic, not to mention her fabulous striped top, but I own a similar version of each item that she is wearing! Granted, her blazer with the thick lapel is cooler than mine and so is her zippered skirt, (note to self, get one immediately) but other than that, I can shop my own closet! And, seeing that I am currently a very active member of the Recessionista Movement, all I have to say is, hurrah!

Day 5: California Dreamin’

03300918531The bliss of vacation had sadly come to an end, and the reality of leaving the sunny paradise I had so grown accustomed to, coupled with the fact that I had to leave my parents for another three months (yes, I try and see them every three months) began to sink in. So to bring a silent closure to our lovely getaway, we did what we always do when near the ocean. We took a long walk, then sat on the beach watched the sunset.

Thank you so much for reading, my dears. It has been so wonderful to share this special trip with you all. SPxx
