Behold the quintessential all black New Yorker outfit. No, not necessarily “exciting” (hey, Rooney Mara gets away in all black all the time!), but when you’re hitting the pavement searching for apartments all day you gotta go with something that provides at least one of the following: comfort, functionality, and spandex. I went with all three.

There’s something to be said for all black ensembles (though I’ve said it before here and here…and here…), for though they can at first appear Boring with a capital B, you’ll soon learn that it’s all about the details.

Continue reading, young grasshoppers.

Take these pants that want to call themselves leggings. Leather paneling on the front, stretchy spandex in the back, thus separating them from the Ugg boots and sorority sweatshirt requirements — or so I like to think. Then you have the sweater - which isn’t really pictured here as it was too cold to remove my sleeping bag parka and I was suffering from a caffeine high (see penguin photo below) - featuring the wonderful inside-out look where hemlines and seams get a standing ovation. And lastly, the shoes. I’ve wanted wedged sneakers since Spice World came out and my Mom refused to buy them for me. Well look at me now, Ma! Wedge sneakers on me feets!

And there you have it; a basic outfit that gets its thrills in the details. Note: colorful nails and some jewelry always help, too!

Impersonating penguins standing on one foot is one of my specialties.

Wildcard

January 16, 2012

Since this weekend was full of sleeping bag coats (hello freezing temperatures), football gear (go niners), and cozy sweatshirts (love those hoodies), I decided to toss in a wildcard and get a bit more dressed up on Sunday night. Pairing perhaps the world’s most unexpectedly versatile blouse with some figure flattering skinny jeans, a sparkly clutch and Roberto Cavalli heels, I felt like I was having a Carrie Bradshaw moment ready to take New York by storm and hit up one of those notorious Sex and the City clubs (can I reference this show enough?). Instead I ventured to the Upper East Side and promptly slipped back into sweats to watch the Golden Globes. Though a bold attempt, sometimes a weekend commands comfy clothing and there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that.
