"spotted" on the street

haha. big fakers. Mitch & I "discovering" each other in the Upper West Side Starbucks....
Is it bad that I only post when my hair looks awesome? Mitch says I have Sue Ellen hair.
And the girl in pink behind me matches my tank!

Neeeeeeeeon forever.

It's a huge trend now, but I can't abandon it simply because of that! I love neon. I did in the 80's and I did last year and I still do!
I tone it down more now though. Just the socks, or sandals or some scrap of bright.
I dug through the archives for this look:
cream leather jacket by Junewear
denim peplum skirt by Nanette Lepore
5 bills by Loeffler Randall
neon socks by J. Crew
skull clutch from Treesje
sweater a gift from a good friend, by Gary Graham

Spring for a new bag!

Spring has sprung and I have a new Marni bag to prove it! I think it will also work for pre-fall but by then I'm sure I will have succumbed to the PS 1 Tote in bright let's not try to look ahead!
I have been waiting all winter to wear these neon babies by Giuseppe Zanotti for Christopher Kane that I got last year and wore to pieces. There is neon all over right now but these are still the best I've seen. 
Double layered white shirt by Ann Demeulemeester from my buying stint at Saks. No, I wasn't an actual buyer, I just bought a lot of junk! I def bought more than I sold!
Long taffeta skirt by Junya Watanabe. ahhhh so good! Fall or spring, this skirt is what's up. 
Belt by Carlisle, which is a conservative brand, but Mitch found it of course.
Jessica Kagan Cushman "Bite Me" bangle.

Black is the new Black

Every so often that catty hag Mitch goads me into action by casually asking, "Why is your blog so boring?" Mmmmhmmm. So of course I have to go blog something to appease the beast, and assuage my own guilty conscience.
This outfit was born out of necessity, like many happy accidents. I had a drink with Mitch after work, planning on returning home that evening and of course ended up having a few too many and watching fashion shows on all night, and never making it home. Waking up the next morning, I found myself with one outfit option, a dress I had brought over for sewing repair and my Chanel boots from the previous day. I would never have opted for these boots with this conservative vintage dress, and yet it worked. Pumps with this dress would be so staid and uninteresting, but the boots add a tomboy flavor.
I also never wear all black, but the dress is actually navy and for some reason, I feel like I am going to a socialite's funeral in this get-up.
Dress is vintage from high school. I think I paid $1.00 for it. Go, me!
Tights H&M
Chanel boots fall 2011
Fur coat is also vintage, with big 80's Dynasty shoulders. A gift from a friend...
Alligator bag is from Goodwill, also from a good friend. He paid $2.00.

I actually put on some makeup today, great new eyeshadow by Everyday Minterals. It went on easily and comes in great neutrals, like olive green and a brown/green moss color.
Also a hideous bright red lip color by Wet n Wild, which looks great if you blot it and wear as a stain instead of garish lipstick.
