Inspiration Into Reality

One of the things that inspire is honestly walking around the streets of New York. I am also a big fan of my monthly subscriptions to all my fave mags.  I could be going about my regular day and then in an instant I can turn a corner and see an outfit  that stops me dead in my tracks. I  keep a file of pictures I take or come across of outfits that I would love to recreate and put my own spin on it.

My first look is a cute girl wearing a bright jacket with a stripe shirt and distressed shorts. I knew I had every element of that outfit right in my closet. Here I put my spin on it…

The next look is super fun and casual for a weekend brunch with girls. I took one look at the inspiration picture and knew right away I had all these things already in my closet. I turned my stripe dress in a skirt. For the vest, I had this old GAP denim jacket that I cut off the sleeves and gave it an updated alteration.

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.
