SIDEWALK ▲ CAFES

October 13, 2011

I don’t know why but something about this outfit makes me think of traveling to Europe with friends and eating/drinking at sidewalk cafes. I think it’s because all of the pieces by American Living are versatile and comfortable (crucial when packing) and yet a pop of raspberry red lips, a bright flower and a classic pair of heels make them slightly more sophisticated.

One of my favorite things about traveling with friends is the process of getting ready for a night out on the town. Everyone’s rummaging in each other’s suitcases, the frequent question is “does this look ok?” and by the end of an hour spent getting ready, everyone is wearing each others clothes and usually far dressier than they need to be.

Although I don’t have any travel plans in the near future, I’m definitely making a mental note of this outfit for the next time I jet off to a fun place with friends.

Natural φ Disasters

Yesterday I (among many other New Yorkers) experienced my first New York City earthquake. I was sitting on the 20th floor of a building in midtown and suddenly my chair went shaky shaky and my computer went wibble wobble. Having grown up and experienced my fair share of earthquakes in San Francisco, you would think I’d be the epitome of calm in such a situation. But no. I pretty much went cross-eyed, shoveled a ton of chocolate in my mouth and was the first (and maybe only) person on my floor to evacuate the building. Better safe than sorry or just awkward? Still not sure.

With natural disasters on my mind, I decided to collage some of the images I found on the interwebs with the look I wore yesterday, otherwise known as the outfit I was wearing when New York City experienced an earthquake. Let’s hope I only ever have to have one of those outfits…

A flowy white pleated skirt has been on my shopping list for quite awhile, so I was thrilled when this SuperTrash number arrived on my doorstep last week. Between its lightweight fabric and modest hemline I have a feeling this skirt is going to be on heavy rotation in my wardrobe.

When I was first putting this outfit together, I had this skirt paired with a blue and white breton stripe shirt and a thinner belt, but the whole thing felt too preppy for my style. While standing around debating my outfit I saw this colorful scarf out of the corner of my eye and immediately knew I wanted to incorporate it into my look. It’s much too hot for a scarf around your neck these days, so instead I wrapped it around my upper body, turning it into a surprisingly comfortable tube-y top top. While this would normally feel scandalous and a bit too bare for my taste, the modest hemline of the skirt was a perfect juxtaposition to my naked shoulders.

Oh, this dress…

I saw this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress on the runway and immediately added it to my wishlist. However, I wasn’t fast enough at buying it and it sold out in what seemed like mere seconds. Equivalent to that of a major blockbuster hit, this dress was out of stock before the model walked off the runway, a total worldwide obsession. So, like any true, hopelessly devoted fan, I  got on a waitlist.

Thinking my dreams of galavanting around in this stripey silk number were officially over, I started to take interest in…brace yourselves…imitation designs that I’d seen hanging in multiple NYC boutique windows. I know, I know, very unlike me, but I was determined to own this dress, or at least something like it. But! like most (Disney influenced) fairytales, my wish upon a star came true and I awoke one morning to find an email in my inbox letting me know that this dress, in my size, was now available. Zippidy do da! 1-2-3 click and it was mine! In just a couple of weeks my perfect, colorful, flouncy dress arrived on my doorstep all the way from Germany.

Being everything I thought it would be and more, I’ve already planned out a variety of different outfits with this dress (boots and a leather jacket anyone?), so you’ll probably see it on here more often than not. Wishes really do come true!

Stompin’ on Chuckies

April 20, 2011

I’ve been wearing some version of Converse since I was about four years old. My first pair was a pair of maroon Converse high-tops that I wore until there were holes in the soles (hello rhyme!), and well, not much has changed with a few of my pairs today. I have a variety of Converse now from the Missoni x Converse high tops to my staple basic black low tops that are pretty close to biting the dust, but when Converse sent over this pair of charcoal Chuck Its my toes and I wiggled with delight. I love how simple they are and that I can slip them on without the tiniest bit of effort. I put this outfit together for a relaxed day of walking and window shopping around Soho and couldn’t have been more comfortable. What this outfit lacks in color is made up in comfort. Now that’s an outfit I can get behind.
