Mmmmm, smells like Maui

May 9, 2013 in Fendi, inhabit NY, J. Crew, LOOKBOOK

This is my Maui dress. I wore this thing over and over when I was there. And I haven’t stopped loving it since I got back. I have to be honest, I have yet to wash it. It smells like beach and I don’t want to lose that amazing smell (yes, I’m weird).

J. Crew Amie Dress in Stripe
You know, I finally graduate next week. I picked up my cap and gown the other day and boy, do I look silly in them. I’ll have to take pictures for you guys. Now I have to figure out what to wear under it, though. I just won a little black dress on eBay today and hopefully that will fit. Should I get a backup? Nah, I’ll just wear this dress again, ha! Genius.

Yesterday I almost gave in to the “I don’t really need this, but its such a great deal!” trap. I didn’t, but it was darn close. I keep thinking that if I sell enough, maybe I’ll be able to afford a nice black trench. Seriously, that would be the perfect addition to my outerwear collection right now. I keep thinking of everything I could wear it with. What is your big wishlist item right now?

Trends to Try – Asymmetric Tops

April 3, 2013 in Balenciaga, inhabit NY, J. Crew, rag & bone

This top is way out of my comfort zone. Patterns? Bold colors? Funny cut? Ahhhhhh! I tried to make everything else as un-trendy as possible to make myself feel better. I think the shirt will be a great addition for the warmer months when my shorts & tee look needs a little extra oomph.

Madewell Crossweave-Sleeve Trench Review

March 25, 2013 in Adriano Goldschmied, Balenciaga, Equipment, inhabit NY, J. Crew, J. Crew Reviews, LOOKBOOK, Pour la Victoire

I. Love. This. Jacket. It was a Madewell popback purchase last week during the 25% off sale (still going on today). I’m so glad I took the plunge outside my comfort zone. The jacket is surprisingly versatile. Its perfect for spring to fall, at least in the Midwest. Just big enough to layer under without looking too bulky. This is an xs.

Now I’m determined to try out more Madewell outerwear (have a a legitimate excuse to buy outerwear year-round now, you know). Their coats are more rugged looking than J. Crew’s, but still just as adorable. I’ve been eyeing this Kasson Parka for about a month now. It was actually the first thing that caught my eye on their site. I swear it was on sale before, though. Confused.
