This Week I Love...

Happy Monday!


I hope everyone had a great weekend. I apologize for the lack of posting... crazy, busy weekend back home.


So, one of my favorite fashion bloggers is Chiara from The Blonde Salad. She has an incredible wardrobe and fantastic style! She posted a picture during New York Fashion Week of a stunning Swarovski cuff (see image below) and I fell in love with it!


I had put the cuff on my 'Wish List,' however, I was browsing in Forever21 and I stumbled upon an identical bracelet! No, it isn't real Swarovski crystals but it'll do until I want to splurge on the 'real' deal. So, this week I love my new cuff...




What do you guys think? Aside from the fact that I need a tan!


I'll be pairing the cuff with the outfit below for the start of my week.

Happy Monday!

Super Fly or Superhero?!



Good Morning!


I was going through some pictures online from New York Fashion Week and noticed that a lot of capes were being shown for spring and fall 2011. I often struggle with this trend... I have one grey, plaid cape which I absolutely adore but the reason I struggle is because I don't always find it practical. It's definitely easy to 'throw on' as you're walking out the door, but is it warm? I'm either too cold or too hot... I never know what type of weather is appropriate.


I'm still, however, attracted to this trend and fell in love with the following:


What do you think of capes? Are they super fly or merely for superheros?

Airport Attire.

Hello everyone!


I apologize for the fact that this post was published twice... not totally sure how that happened but thank you for your comments on both!


I'm flying home tonight to see my family for the rest of the week and weekend, and this made me realize how much I hate getting dressed for a plane ride. I find that no matter what I wear, whether it be sweatpants or jeans, I'm always uncomfortable. This is usually because I'm either too cold, too hot, too bloated, and the list could go on!


I decided to use one of my favorite sites, Polyvore, to help me create the perfect airport outfit for my excursion tomorrow. I'm absolutely loving it! What do you guys think?

Anyone else have the same airport outfit problems as me?

Airport Attire

Trendy Tuesday!

Good Morning Trendsetters!


Thought I'd make Tuesdays trendy and focus on a new trend that I'm currently loving... this Trendy Tuesday is dedicated to crochet! Crochet is everywhere for spring, adorning bags and bikinis to shorts and skirts. 


I think crochet is great because it can be used in a variety of ways and always adds the perfect touch of detail!


Some of my favorite crochet picks for the spring season are:


Charlotte Russe Dress $26. 50

Charlotte Russe Studded Belt $9.50
Forever21 Boots $32.80


Forever21 Dolman Top $13.99
Inca Crochet Bikini $200
Lauren Merkin Clutch $220
Old Navy Vest $24.50
Robbie and Nikki Sweater $298
Stuart Weitzman Wedges $298
Woven Necklace from Overstock.com $75
Streets of NYC $5

What do you think of the crochet trend?

This Week I Love...

Happy Monday!


Wanted to let you all know that my "About Me" page is finally up and running if you're interested in learning a little bit more about me...


I'm not usually very good with Mondays because I know they're the start of another long week. So, I decided to stick to something semi-comfortable...


This week I love:






My Torn By Ronny Kobo T-shirt! I absolutely LOVE his t-shirts. They're extremely comfortable and the images are incredible. The line is available on Shopbop and they're now on sale (50% off)!!


Going to pair this tee with:


My Type Z Riding Pant Leggings, my GAP side pocket satchel and my ASOS Avanti Wedge Boots!


What do you think? What is your typical Monday outfit?

Shoe Art.

Hello all!


So I'm sure it's already apparent but I have an OBSESSION with shoes. I could literally open up my very own shoe museum. There is just something special about the perfect shoe that ties an entire outfit all together! That's why I cannot wait for spring... so I can throw my boots aside already!


There are certain shoes that I buy for aesthetic reasons... they're just so delicate, different or colorful! I have to admit that they usually stay in my closet because I'm too afraid to ruin them... silly I know!


Here are some fabulous photos I found of "Shoe Art":

We all know these McQueen babies!







You also need to check out the Virtual Shoe Museum and the Bata Shoe Museum... they're fabulous. I've actually been to the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto, Canada and it's awesome!


What do you think of these? For the feet or for the museum? Do you have a favorite pair of shoes you refuse to wear outside and "ruin"?

This Week I Love...

Hello and Good Morning!


This week I love... My Betsey Johnson leather bag!





I actually bought this bag a few years ago and it has stayed in amazing condition. It's one of my favorites because of its size, color and details. Look at the stitching!


I think I'll wear it this week with:


Do you have a bag that has lasted throughout the years?

My Outfit.

Good Morning!


FINALLY doing another outfit post. I'm sorry that these outfit posts aren't more consistent... my photographer (aka my boyfriend) doesn't always have the time, but I promise to make more of an effort.


This outfit was one I wore out for dinner. I absolutely LOVE structured, silk shirts. I think they're an easy way to dress up a pair of jeans. 


Let me know what you all think...

Oops my shirt is a little creased!




I love mixing in vintage finds! Makes an outfit more exciting.


I'm wearing:


Shirt - GAP
Jeans - Earnest Sewn
Shoes - Forever21
Clutch -  Forever 21
Necklaces - Vintage (both of them)
Ring - Forever21
Nail polish - Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in Silver Sweep


Have a great Tuesday!

KIU,
