ladies in paris

When I went to Paris, aside from the city itself, I fell in love with trench coats and stripes. 4.5 year later, I'm still in love.

plaid, purple & pewter

This is another thrown together, last minute look, that I had to post because of the shoes! I've had them for over a month, worn them numerous times, and finally took the time to shoot them. I was actually looking for the SAM EDELMAN ALVIN leopard loafers that every blogger and her mother has, and luckily I found these first. They were love at first try. Spikes and sparkles...you can't go wrong!

wearing: gifted scarf, urban flannel, f21 jeggings, sam edelman loafers, chicshop ring, revlon silver screen & pink again polish
worn to: class

eyes wide shut

I spent 3 hours doing my hair on Saturday and by night time I was too exhausted to care what I put on or to take pictures. So I threw camo over a white tee, added a chunky necklace, some strappy heels and voila! O, and because I am a dedicated blogger ;) I recreated the look on Sunday just to take pics :)

wearing: OLD NAVY JACKET, j crew tee, AMERICAN APPAREL VELVET STIRRUPS, dolce vita heels, nordstrom necklace, kenneth cole men's watch

ETA: Lucky coincidence that I post this look and 3 days later I find out that the next BLOGGERS DO IT BETTER challenge is MILITARY CHIC!

throwback thursday: thrifted sparkles

I wore this way back in June when I was cruising around the Caribbean and I never posted it because, well who really knows. Luckily, it's never too late and because I have a folder full of looks I've never posted, Throwback Thursday may make an appearance from time to time. And, if you haven't connected with me on FACEBOOK you should :) I do CelebrTuesday where I post my fav celeb looks of the week and Wishful Wednesday where I share what I'd be buying if I had all the money in the world (or a full time job).

wearing: thrifted dress & belt, f21 ring and clutch, nordstrom earrings, christian louboutin heels

grandfathered in

As soon as I put this on, I thought of my grandfather. The brown cable sweater and the necklace pocket watch remind me of something he would have owned and the whole look makes me smile, because it makes me think of him :)
