I’ve taken my obsession with monochromatic dressing to the next level with outfits composed of pieces derived from a similar color palette. Dressing in related color tones that aren’t so matchy matchy is an easy way to look not so standard while still wearing pretty standard pieces. Here you see me all oranged up, resembling some kind of fall foliage or cherry tomato mixture,  but note this my friends: I’m still wearing my usual silky blouse + skinny jeans combo. Ain’t nothin fancy shmancy about that! This is what we call attainable fashion people, attainable fashion. Also note that dressing in a tomato-based color palette allows you to eat and spill as many tomato-based meals as you like without winding up looking like a Jackson Pollock. Major plus for those of you who are clumsy like me or use your outfits as a napkin.

Shopping Blackout

Meet my new Dries Van Noten babies. Orange lucite heel? Check! Multi-textured? Check! Porn for my feet? Check!

I saw these suckers on sale at Barneys this past weekend and was P.O.’d because they weren’t in my size. So, after trying on a few pairs of Miu Mius, Pradas and Wangs, I made one last lap around the sale section and shazam! there they were, the Dries Van Notens I’ve been goo goo gah gah for for months! The next few minutes are a bit of a blur as I darted toward the closest seat like a hungry lion and fastened the shoes of my dreams to my feet. Without so much as a blink of the eye, I whipped out my credit card and next thing I knew I was walking outside clutching my Barneys bag like a football.

Blacking out because of complete and utter excitement is truly the best.
