*the new trench*
i think i’m allergic to my camera…or the camera’s allergic to me. my face has been sucking lately, hence all the shoegazing poses. then again, these dolce vita hamilton peeptoe booties with its awesome wedge heel are always worthy of gazing at :) can i talk about this trench coat though? funny story…i was looking for a cheapie trench coat to do a DIY because i...
*down by the river*
nothing terribly exciting going on today. stopped by the river for a pho-toe while running an errand. wish i had something more astounding to report. as warm & sunny as it is now, we’re rumored to get a foot of snow in 2 days. how’s that for a kick in the ass?
*a hint of mint*
this skirt is a throwback from my “desk job” days…easily 10 years ago now. yup, my style was so very express/ann taylor business casual back in the day. i just can’t get rid of it though. i love this mint color as much now as i did back then. (sorry for the wrinkles…i had to take my pics at the end of the day). by way of confirmation, MDH wasn’t feeling well...
well, well…look who wants to come up & pose for some pictures! hahaha! peenut is definitely not camera shy, but he’s not always eager to stay still for longer than 10 seconds either :) isn’t this a beautiful dress in such a hot color for spring…coral? can you believe i got it at a clothing swap? it’s the softest jersey knit with a silk trim & belt &...
since i could never afford this most BADASSEST of coats…i’ll settle for its nude heel cousin. shoes are more my thing anyway ^_^
*st. paddy's day color blocking*
since i didn’t blog yesterday, this st. patrick’s day outfit post already seems super outdated. i decided to use the opportunity of fulfilling the “green” requirement so as not to get pinched to also work on my color blocking again. getting better…but i’m still too much of a woosy. the neutrals are nice to balance the colors, but it’s not FULL-ON color...
*blogger day of silence...for japan with love*
i went to japan back in the summer of 2007. it was my first *real* visit ever (not counting stops at narita & nagoya airports i’ve made flying back & forth from other parts of asia). tokyo was everything i had ever imagined and so much more. all the fashions i had seen…all the food i ate…just riding their subway were moments i cherished plus, i was thrilled to have shared those...
*norwegian hearts cape*
funny…it seems i can’t go to NYC without packing some type of cape. this particular weekend, the weather called for fairly warm (50s) weather, so i decided against a heavy winter coat which i was glad. this cute little cape was plenty warm with the layers i had underneath :) our last afternoon in NYC was kind of a lazy day. spent a good part of the morning getting cupcakes &...
*she wore blue velvet (to eat lobster)*
the hubs, the pup & i jaunted off to NYC for a day. even with japan weighing heavily on my heart, i actually felt relief to be away for the weekend and not be inundated with more & more devastating aftermath reports of the earthquake & resulting tsunamis. we traveled down for one of MDH’s best college buddy’s 40th birthday party. we stuffed ourselves with 6 courses...
*the new IT shoe*
so…were you like me in that the only place your mom would take you shopping for shoes as a kid was payless…and you hated to be associated with that place with a passion, hoping none of your classmates would see you & you would go in quick as you can, find the same faux velvet black flats to replace your last ones & then get the heck outta dodge? no? ok, guess it was just me...
to everyone in japan, hawaii & all other areas affected by the earthquakes & ensuing tsunamis…our love, thoughts & prayers go to you. please be safe. photo circa july 2007 trip to tokyo
*rock the red pump day*
since MDH works for one of the biggest nonprofits whose sole work is to establish & support HIV/AIDS treatment centers around the globe, i thought it most particularly fitting i participate in “rock the red pump” day! according to their website…”Every year, the United States recognizes March 10th as National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD). It’s a...
*hermes at target?*
i seem to be all kinds of obsessed with heavy metal on my wrists lately. i actually have quite a large collection of bracelets, leather cuffs, etc., however i tend not to use them on a daily basis with my work, but i’m trying to get back more into bringing them out into the world to play ^_^ ownership of this new beauty however i owe all to izzy of the dandy project. if i hadn’t...
i tend to have extremely busy weekends or ones where i don’t do anything at all…sometimes i don’t even leave the house which is all right by me. this weekend involved nothing really except work, laundry, chasing down a grilled cheese sandwich truck and finally fondue dinner with one of the funnest women i know. my wedding planner…who helped MDH & i plan one hell of a...
i wanted to do simply color blocking today like chiara & sophia. it didn’t really end up that way OBVS. oh well, if i can go out in an all red outfit, i can go out with coral legs. no one even batted an eyelash at me. *sigh* i must be losing my groove.
didn’t know which i was more EXCITED about! my vintage burgundy coat that i forgot how well it fits me & keeps me so warm on a blistering cold night like tonight OR that i managed to catch the grand opening of the roxy’s grilled cheese truck before it completely shut down. granted, they were out of hot & tasty grilled cheese sandwiches by the time i got there, but i did get a...
to be honest, i’m not a big fan of clutches. only because i would be the dum-dum to lose them everywhere. i’ve even left restaurants with my regular purse sitting on the table. can you imagine? years ago when i was working on my acupuncture degree, i developed horrible migraines…only on my left temple. i assumed it went along with the stress of grad school & just dealt...
