What I Wore-Thrifted Leather on Leather

Over the weekend it got to a balmy 40 something degrees (uhg, Spring please come!) so I got to switch up my coat, which I was sadly so excited about. I bought this leather bubble coat (that turns into a vest!) at Salvation Army’s annual Winter Coat Sale, I read about this sale on Tales from the Thrift and it is the best thing ever! If you’re in NY you MUST go! I’m not super into matching, but I really loved… View Post

What I Wore – Floppy Hats and New Boots

So this winter I decided to expand my hat repertoire to include floppy hats and I am completely digging the practicality and the style so darn much! I like that a floppy hat lessens the frequency of my umbrella usage and also keeps the snow out of my eyes…yeah wide brim! I’ve been rocking this Faire Collection hat from Greenheart Shop all winter! (hat-faire collection via greenheart shop // coat-hessnatur (sadly no longer shipping to u.s.) // bag-jet korine (online… View Post

What I Wore-Plus Rockin’ My 90’s Side Part

So I got a tad bored with my hair the other day and decided to try a deep side part. I know not super dramatic, but a different part is an easy way to change up your hairstyle…and I like easy! So as I’m thumbing through pictures of this outfit to share with you, it dawned on me my deep side part is totally reminiscent of fashion icon of the 90’s, Tiffani Thiessen as Miss Kelly Kapowski  of Saved by… View Post

What I Wore-Neon Pastel?

I would like to introduce you to my new favorite shirt. I thrifted this cutie at Buffalo Exchange on my Treat Yo Self Birthday. This little blouse is getting a lot of love from the co-workers, the homies annnd the BF (you know they don’t always agree!).  I have been wearing it a whole lot and I see myself wearing it in the future because it’s quite seasonless to me, which is a huge bonus. When I bought this blouse… View Post

What I Wore-I’m a Winner!

So friends, I told you about my deep affection for the ASOS Africa collection here (well and here and here too) and how my favorite dress in the collection sold out in just 2 short weeks. But(!) thank you 2012 because I tweeted the folks at SOKO Kenya, the fair trade cooperative where the ASOS Africa collection is made (you can read about them here) and was disappointed to hear that they weren’t making more of my dress :(. However… View Post

What I Wore-OVER It!

So friends, this is a little different kind of What I Wore situation. I was nearly deleting these pictures all together because like I feel every blogger I choose the pictures I feel best in and truthfully these pictures made me feel less than that. But instead I’ve decided to confront and confess all these silly little things that didn’t make me feel great about these pictures. Gawsh, now this is not a pity party this is a party to… View Post

What I Wore-Sunshine on a Rainy Day

I’m really into wearing bright colors when it’s ugly outside and lately we’ve been experiencing gray rainy weather in bulk in New York. (jacket-old i forget where from; top-thrifted via buffalo exchange; boots-cri de couer via loving eco/jp slects) I am so happy I found this top at Buffalo Exchange! It is exactly the stripey situation I was talking about in my Punchlines Mani post; and BONUS the BF seems to really loves this top. He said to me that… View Post

What I Wore…as the Birthday Girl

So friends most of you know I celebrated a birthday recently… That is right! I turned the big 3-0 :D. I was really looking forward to turning 30; the journey of my 20’s has really felt long (in a good way). Graduating college, trying out lots of media fields, and then slowly working my way to become a professional, and confident in what I do. There were just so many changes, I felt I lived two lives within my 20’s;… View Post

What I Wore-Pastels

Hi Friends…I have a confession. When I find something I like I kind of get obsessed with it. I guess it is true to say when I love something I love it alllllll the way. This is what happened with my deep attraction to Catherine Ogust printed dresses. I stumbled on a Catherine Ogust dress on Etsy while perusing for neon and I put it in my favorites contemplated and then decided, “YES THIS HAS TO BE MINE” only to… View Post

What I Wore…Lugging Around

Hi there friends…so this is what I typically look like on a Thursday morning. (backpack-baggu; purse-matt & nat; jacket-thrifted via buffalo exchange; dress-keiko lynn via blogger closet raid; shoes-thrifted via cauz for pawz; scarf-homemade by my aunt for x-mas :D) I work from home on Wednesdays so every Thursday morning I’m lugging around extra things back to the office. You might recognize baggu from a guest post I did on ethical backpacks on The Loudmouth. This baggu backpack is totally… View Post

What I Wore-Helllloooooo Spring!

You know I haven’t done a real true straight up outfit post in a long while and since Spring has officially sprung in NY (actually unofficially sprung quite early this season) I think there is no better time for an outfit post. These pics were taken last week. I got out of work early for a change and it was a balmy 74 degrees in NY at 5:30 in the evening :). This is the face I make with that… View Post

What I Wore-A Touch of Neon

  While I don’t have the neon dress I’m dreaming of in my head I do have a little neon in my life :D. (polish: color club-yell-oh w/ brucci french bliss; rings: rose-my grandma’s ring, spike ring madeherthink) (sweater-barney’s warehouse sale; neon blouse-urban outfitters; jeggings uniqlo; boot-miz mooz) I bought this neon tank top three years ago as a birthday treat for myself.

What I Wore-Two new faves!

Hi hi friends! I have not done an outfit post in quite a while, mostly because during the holidays all I’m thinking of is giving special gifts so my posts and mind have really been in the giving mode. BUT I have gotten a few additions to the wardrobe that I’m super excited about and wanted to share. (sweater-thrifted target; shirt-unknown, sorry it’s from college; boots-miz mooz; scarf-sustainable nyc) So my first new favorite thing is this fantastic green scarf… View Post
