Not everything that glitters is gold…sometimes it’s silver

The other night I was meeting a friend for drinks after work and she came in wearing the most fabulous silver shoes. She had worn them to work with a simple pencil skirt and short sleeve blazer. I was intrigued by the pairing and she explained to me that she treats her silver heels like a neutral. That comment has stuck with me. I love it. So I immediately went home and bought these silver heels from Schutz. I’ve worn them with a pencil skirt like my friend, with pants and even jeans. As a side note I came across the Schutz brand when I was looking for a new tan pump. I love Stuart Weitzman pumps but honestly I treat my pumps pretty harshly so I needed something at a lesser […]

Mixing It Up

Almost Time for Spring…but Not Quite Yet…. This time of year I get wooed by all the pretty Spring florals but I know that I’ve got a few more months of cooler weather.  I also know that if I wait til March or April to buy Spring items then all the fantastic pieces will be picked over. So what is a girl to do? I like to pair my Spring florals with my Winter staples.  For example take this Equipment blouse and pair with a floral sweater such as this one from Zara. Or take that floral blouse like this one from Banana Republic and open it up over a turtleneck in grey or black. Another idea, is to take your BLANKNYC suede moto jacket and pair with a sleeveless blouse like this […]

I love reading other blogs. It has been funny because I have seen this same jacket on several different blogs. It got to the point where I was a little jaded and thought how many times can different blogs show this jacket. But then I tried on this jacket and figured out what all the fuss was about. It is a soft cropped suede in the moto style which is all the rage currently. I went up a size because of the cropped style and also because I wanted the option to layer underneath. It comes in fabulous colors from a classic coffee bean to purple haze to burgundy. I bought the silver grey but I’ll be honest before the year is out I may break down and buy a more classic […]

Back to School Wear and do you feel Clueless

After a little break this summer it is nice to get back in the swing of things but I can’t believe school is back in session this week. So I’ve had several requests of what should the teen wear back to school. I represent corporations at work and make difficult decisions every day but there is nothing more difficult than dressing the teenage girl and I can feel Clueless but I certainly don’t want my daughter to dress like Cher and Dionne. So I went to my sources and I thought I would share a few ideas. So a line I love for the teenager girl is BLANKNYC. Nordstrom has a great selection of this brand. The price point is great and the fit works really well for the teenage body. I […]
