Fluff Abounds

vintage sweater

I've been trying to pick up some inexpensive pieces to wear to work, that will go with the nicer APC pieces I've gotten from the company. It's a surprisingly difficult balance, as APC's aesthetic is much cleaner and minimalistic than my hodge-podge of styles. Still, something like this fluffy-as-fuck pink sweater does the trick. Worn with black jeans + boots, plus a swipe of eyeliner and a layer of hot pink drugstore lipstick, I'm ready to kick Friday's a$$.

Mad Men-ning

I went to the Museum of the City of New York this Saturday, to see the Mac Connor exhibit.  If any of you guys are into 1950s/60s stylized illustration and the like it's a must-see.  We wound up in Central Park after the museum because the day magically turned from rainy to gorgeous, it's nice when that happens.  I'm trying to get into my jacket game, but the weather is still mostly quite warm, which I'm definitely not complaining about. Autumn is unapologetically gorgeous this year.

I know that we're about to wrap up Paris, but I can't help it - my heart is still in Milano. Not only do my favorite collections always come out of there (looking at you, Dries and Marni), but I'm loving the street style looks outside of the shows as well. There's a simplicity and season-less aesthetic, not to mention an air of purity about these looks - maybe it's the proximity to the Vatican? Whatever it is, I'm now on the hunt for pleated shirt dresses and everything in oxblood.

Falling into Spring


You guys, I am HEAVILY invested in this month's fashion week.  It's the first time in a while that I haven't felt as though everything hasn't just been fully regurgitated to the highest extent, in terms of themes and silhouettes, etc. Two of my favorites have been Erdem and Fendi.  Erdem, for it's languorous cuts and ability to completely envelop itself in an inspiration, the show was engrossing from start to finish.  And as for Fendi, I was really surprised at how much I loved it, being that I'm not the biggest Lagerfeld fan.  But the show was so much fun to watch, with really great artistic detailing, fantastic shoes, and a side of GLAMOUR darling.

I haven't been able to experience much of fashion week this season because of work, but I was able to pop over to the Cynthia Rowley presentation, which was tons of fun.  I said on twitter the other day, prior to this show, that NYFW this season seemed to be about a big 60s resurgence, and this presentation really proved it.  I'm loving the stovepipe bellbottoms and swingy shift dresses with modern accessories and styling. I'm also a fan of the modified exercise wear she was showing - it seems like that trend is here to stay for at least another season or two, which isn't necessarily a bad thing because I need all the motivation I can to go running.  Sleek black separates with metallic gold trim should help.

What a Beautiful F*ckin' Day

 Vintage lace bra, Zara crop top, APC skirt

Piggybacking off of my last post, this past Saturday was one of those knock down, drag out beautiful and scorching late summer days.  After brunching at Sarabeth's with F's family, we headed through Tribeca, stopping at Hudson River Park, imagining we lived in a loft on Greenwich street, and ending up at the Angelika to see John MacDonough's latest Calvary.  It kind of feels like a hazy dream now that we're both embedded in the work week again. I think I'm going to start petitioning for the 5 day weekend, I'll let you know how it goes.

Late and Lazy Days

Stella McCartney and Isabel Marant resort

I appreciate how New York always gives it's residents a real Indian summer - we never end August with a wimpy 65 degree day and then, BAM, we're in fall.  There's always a period of about 3 weeks in late August/early September where it's impossible to stay indoors because every single day is just so darn miraculous. 

In terms of clothing, I'm looking at the next few weeks as an opportunity to ease into the longer, slim silhouettes I've been seeing in some of my favorite resort shows, while still maintaining breezy fabrics and wearing sandals to work. Stella is always perfect, as evidenced by the number of times I've blogged about her collections (MANY), but I was surprised to find that I was drawn to Isabel Marant's casual suiting as well.

 APC skirt, vintage Doc Martens, Cheap Monday tote

Yesterday was the perfect day, warm yet not humid, with a sense of early fall's crispness. F and I decided to go exploring at the Cloisters, which anyone in the New York area should go to as often as possible, because it's one of the most beautiful oasis-like spots in the city. We hiked around there for hours, picnicking along the way and spotting groundhogs everywhere (a rare wildlife sighting!). I was wearing my new APC skirt, which is a really perfect transitional item, because it's light but also lined. You'll be seeing plenty more APC  pieces popping up here soon I'm sure!

Waking Up

Dress from Tokyo, shoes from London, LOFT jacket, Marc Fisher handbag

One thousand apologies for my extended absence! I'm re-upping my commitment to this blog, as life has very recently begun to settle down. To make a long story short, over the past few weeks I've begun a new job and moved into a new apartment, both things which have occupied 100% of my time, to the point that I rarely even open my laptop for personal reasons. But I'm so excited to announce that I'm working for the amazing French brand APC as a production assistant at their Manhattan showroom, which is pretty much the stuff dreams are made of. It's such a fantastic company to work for, and the perks aren't bad either...

Other than that, this post is simply a reminder that I am alive and well, and would like once more to become internet friends with all of you <3 nbsp="" p="">

Invitation to Love

Images via my Pinterest

A little diversion from your regularly scheduled fashion blog. I'm moving into a new apartment with my boyfriend in a little less than a month, and therefore I'm busily brainstorming various ways of decorating. My tastes haven't changed very much since my last apartment, except for that I'm more interested in shades of dusky pink. Other than that, I'm loving smoky blues and greys combined with tiled white, accents of plants and botanical prints.
