I think I’m falling….for FALL! Normally I thrive solely for summer; shorts and tees and tanks. But this current change in weather has me looking towards the future. I’m so excited for what fall has in store (see my color & accessories post on FemInspire, as well as my Fall Wishlist). I was thrilled to find these perfectly hued ankle boots at H&M, and threw on this chambray DIY shirt. I’m also ecstatic to be wearing my leather jacket again (from H&M) which has been a favorite of mine since I first bought it.
On the non-sartorial aspect, I’m excited for crunching leaves beneath my feet and New England adventures that I can only hope to include apple picking, pumpkin picking, and a belligerently drunk trip to King Richard’s Faire. What are you excited about for fall (fashionably or life-oriented)!?
I was feeling cabin feverish the other day so I decided to get outside. The Garden City shopping center in Cranston, RI was the perfect location! I could walk shop to shop between sunlight and air conditioning with my delicious Berry Hibiscus Refresher from Starbucks; damn those things are good.
Also, I get alot of questions about my tattoos and figured I’ll do a post about them. If anyone has any specific questions about them, comment with them and I’ll have them answered later this week!
It’s been a long two and a half months away from my New York City; a long tumultuous few months. But pending review from my primary doctor tomorrow, I should be back staring at the skyline from the Brooklyn coast the beginning of August! For now, a few visits and this tee shirt shall suffice.
Happy October First! Thankfully, the last day of September was a gorgeous 75 degree day, here in New York City. I was feeling inspired, and trying my hardest to hang onto those last bits of nice weather before the cold fully envelopes us.

I’m sooo loving this new lipstick as well (woah, yea, I’m wearing lipstick). I had been on the hunt for the perfect pink shade for so long, and found it one day at Sephora; Givenchy #23. But everytime I was there they’d have the sample but never any stock for me to buy! finally, though, in a spontaneous trip into the Times Square location, I found my lipstick. Perfection, isn’t it?
I went home to MA for a few days of relaxation, and relax I did. I lived in my Jesica Simpson combat boots as opposed to heels and jeans instead of dresses and skirts. I was wearing this Wet Seal laced crop top when I put on a flannel (from pacsun) for warmth and realized I looked like I had just walked straight out of 1993…grunge, piercings, colored hair, crop tops….My parents even had some Sunny D for me to drink!
I’ve always been a crafty creative person. I used to make plenty of clothes and accessories in high school and shortly after, for example this dress:
Sadly, with my demanding schedule and social life I rarely find time to sit and have some one-on-one with my sewing machine. The most recent thing I’ve managed to whip up is this slouchy clutch.
However, I do have an entire folder on my laptop of ideas and plans brewing for things to be made! I figured I’d share my inspirations with you (after being inspired by this post by Fashion Infusion).
I’ve already started on a fringe-sleeve top and have recently made some purchases from the trimmings stores on 38th street. My sewing machine is finally getting some much deserved love and I can’t wait to go to my parents’ home for a few days where I have a HUGE stash of scrap fabric!
Stay tuned for some great DIY’s, my loyal readers ! ❤

I know American flag shirts are all the rage currently, and I have worn one before, but today felt as best a day as ever to break it out again and show my pride.

My Memorial Day started off with a touch of New England rain, but by the time my mother and I left our first store in our shopping excursion it was beautifully sunny and 87 degrees. The day only got better, with more shopping and then seeing The Hangover II with my boyfriend (which I thought was hilarious but he still preferred the first one). Then it was back to the good ol’ Big Apple for me.
I’ll post a picture of the things I got while shopping soon, but for now, enjoy the weather and get off your computers!
It’s sunny, for the first time in DAYS. It’s Spring.
I recently reclaimed my yellow pants from my parents’ home last weekend and have been itching to wear them, and yesterday just felt like the right day at last. With the sun shining, sunglasses on, and a comfortable, relaxed “it’s finally Thursday” air it was the perfect ensemble.
