Blog Entry #3

you know how you think you like certain things and then you are drawn to something that contradicts that?  well i thought i didn't like bell bottoms and then this happened...

i love these Free People pants!  it's such a unique take on the striped-printed-colored-jean trend... the fabric is a yarn dyed linen/cotton blend, and it has a very slubby, soft finish which i love for this retro inspired design

i love being surprised :)

The Lover's Buggin: Part II

Ya wanna know what I think is key for this spring/summer?!  High-waisted, A-line skirts!

Here's the thing about summer in NYC.  You sweat.  As soon as you stop walking, the beads start a'movin... You know what I mean.  So that's why I usually wear loose skirts and dresses in comfortable fabrics like cotton and linen.  Let that free flowing air circulate (that's for you bert!).

For spring you can warm them up with cute cropped sweaters and booties or since it's already 50 degrees out maybe you just head straight for your see-through lace tops :)

In any case, i think this shape is super flattering because a woman's silhouette is to be defined in your clothing not exposed.  Enjoy!

isn't see gorgeous?!

i am a sucker for red heads
