Back to School…

Remember the days of going back to school was the best part about summer. Of course after a week in, the novelty wears off and you already went through your new school clothes. Now a days, all of our days are running together we don’t have summer to spend with friends or gearing up going back to school.

I am here to introduce a new rule. I have made the decision to go back to school shopping for myself this year. Just because I am no longer in school does not mean I have to give up my favorite pastime.  I put together two looks that I know will mix and match everything I already own in my closet.

My first look is my  “Working Girl Chic” Something that every 9-5 lady can put on in the morning and feel refined all day long.  Instead Of a new backpack I would need an iPad case and will be trading in my  lace-up Chuck Taylors, for Givenchy heels.

My other look that fits my alter-ego personalty. I call this look “Classic on Acid”  Something a little more edgier but still sophisticated. All the kids on the playground will be either envious of me or intimidated of how kick ass I will look.


Both of these outfits cost well into the thousands of dollars range. However the great thing about back to school shopping when you are my age, is that you will not be growing out of your clothes in 6 months. These are all investment pieces that you will have in your closet for years to come. Who said going back to school is a drag?

My Steals & Deals…

This past week I waited in line for an hour in the rain to feast my eyes and shopping fangs on deals at the Alexander Wang sample sale in NYC. When I got to the front of the line I only had 30 minuets inside before they closed the doors for the night. I first found a gorgeous peacock-blue knit jacket that is cut hight in the back. It is oversized and is stunning. I found it on the ground in a pile of rubbish. As I was in line waiting to pay I noticed a cream oversized knit sweater on a rack  alone. I quickly through it over my blouse and it felt like the perfect fit.

Today I decided to go shopping in my closet and pair my new-found items with other things that I already own. Here are my fave outfits,

I paired this Alexander Wang Blazer with a fun floral dress and a striped belt I bought last season at Forever 21. I then decided to keep it casual and pulled out some sandals that I bought at a the cutest  local boutique in he Upper West Side called ShiShi. Keeping my accessories simple I added my new Michael Kors double wrap watch I bought from Net-A-Porter.com. This jacket is very easy to mix and match everything in my closet and it was the a great steal!

Second, I decided to pair my oversized sweater with a floral maxi skirt and chunky heeled sandals. With the skirt being so busy I found a simple pendent to  necklace that I found in my jewelry box that  I got from a local designer in San Francisco Jennifer Tuton. I know this sweater will be a great transition piece in Fall. I know I will get a lot of use from this amazing deal I got.

Sample Sales are one of my fave things to do now that I live in New York. Especially  when they are my fave designers.

Trend Tuesday…

It is May and I am hear to kick off the month with a trend that I know you will want to take part in….

I have to share with you all the newest trend that I have invested in. This spring I will be walking around in sheer maxi’s. I think it is a fun fresh take on last seasons Maxi dress trend. I just hope you all make sure to keep it classy and wear something of legnth appropriate  underneath.

I found this fun picture of a speedy fashionista rocking a sheer maxi with combat boots (another one of my fave spring trends) If you do not want to strut the boots, I suggest to keep it on the girly side. A cute pair of nude sandals always does the trick.
