I’ve finally gone out on a mini-shopping spree and purchased some fashionably relevant necessities! For instance, this jacket from the Army/Navy surplus store was only $10, and I’ve worn it literally everyday since I got it! Also, sneaker wedges! Mine are BDG brand and were bought at Urban Outfitters, and again, I’ve worn them everyday since I got them. They’re soooo comfy but after 4 days in wedges even I think I need a break!

I’m BACK! After a tumultuous October, I’m finally getting my life, and that includes this blog, back on track! The weather here in New England has been rather temperate, even with the impending Hurricane Sandy. I celebrated by going out in shorts, albeit UniqLo HeatTech, but still!

If you’re into fashion in the slightest you’ve noticed the rising trend of intricate mirrored prints. My collection is small, with this Forever 21 skirt from this outfit post, and my thrifted maxi from this outfit post, but I’m still looking to add more to my collection!
We’ve seen it with Jonathon Saunders, Givenchy, D&G, McQueen… and all the knock-off/off-price brands and shops. I think it’s safe to say this trend is sticking and it’s time to invest in a statement piece. What I’m currently lusting? These gorgeous mirror prints by Alexander McQueen (view the set here!).
Seriously considering dipping into my savings for this last one….can’t get much more ‘me’ than bone inspired lace in black!
What do you think of this trend? Also, the sale lace dress, worth a potential investment? Thoughts? Discuss, and be sure to check out MatchesFashion (where I found these dresses) for great other finds and deals!

While on vacation we took a break from our home cooked dinners to go out for my grandmother’s 90th birthday dinner. We took a nice family picture (which we then had framed and given to her as a gift). We then went to a Pine Point local restaurant called the Captain’s Galley. With minimal vegetarian options I opted for fried vegetables with penne and alfredo. My 14 year old brother, though, made my night. I’m a HUGEfan of french fries, so my brother verrrrrry sneakily snuck a fry on my plate at every chance he got, completely under my radar, making it so every time I looked down I had a greasy, delicious fry poking out of my pasta! In the picture below we had just taken a picture with his arm around me where he stuck one in my mouth. Silly, but it made my night.

Alice Yim cocoon cardigan
As you can see, on those cold Maine evenings I’ve been living in this amazinglyyy comfortable cocoon cardigan. Be sure to get YOURS just in time for fall here! I’ve been keeping this casual, but with my return to NYC I’ll be ready to glam up everything, so be prepared for some killer outfits to come!

YAY! My first outfit post from my Maine vacation!
If you haven’t noticed, I don’t edit my photos. I rarely use photoshop outside of school projects, so what you see is what you get when it comes to my blog. In these images, I’m keeping it even more real. Since being on vacation I’ve applied my make up maybe ONCE. There’s not much need when all you go is down to the ocean every morning, then shower off the sand to cuddle and watch TV/movies.

Saturday was a day of both work and play. As some of you may know, I’m a coordinator for the New York Fashion Blogger Meet Up Group. The other coordinators and I, as well as top IFB bloggers and other members of our group attended the Blogger Closet Raid held at the Tribeca Grand Hotel. I had just spent my Friday shopping, but once I found Nitrolicious, all plans to “not spend” went down the drain. Having and amazing shoe collection, ALL in my size, ranging from Jessica Simpson to Jeffrey Campbells to Louboutin’s it was like her set up was curated specifically for me. Though I wish I could have indulged in the crystal encrusted Louboutin’s and Xanadu fur JC’s, I knew I needed to think realistically…and then I found the Jessica Simpson moto boots. I’ve been scouring the internet and shops for the perfect studded moto boots to add to my collection, and when I stumbled upon these for their low price there was no WAY I could say no. The following few images were taken by Monroe of Fashion Steele NYC.
After the raid-fest and saying hello to good friends, it was time to get down to work. Monroe, Yanil and I decided to dine and chat at the Tribeca Grand’s lounge, which was full of attractive attentive staff and delicious drinks, as well as coffee and food according to my counterparts.
I hope they don’t mind that I made myself at home on their chairs!

Jessica Simpson moto boots
As you can see I’m completely smitten with my new purchase. I’m also ecstatic that my ombre manicure if still going strong, since nail colors usually don’t last long on me due to chipping and such.

With fall approaching I’m getting giddy for cashmere. Thanks to Refinery29 and Qi Cashmere, I won an amazing sweater, which I finally received in the mail today! Along with it came their stunning Holiday/Resort 2011 Lookbook.
To the right you’ll notice my new sweater! I’d take a picture of it on, but it’s a sweltering 95 degrees today and even in my house cashmere would just be much too much. However, I’m already planning plenty of cute outfits for the fall and winter…I’m thinking cream leggings or maybe light gray!
To the bottom are some scans of the lookbook. First off, the model is gorgeous; love redheads.
I’m loving the hope sweater (they also have it in gray/pink!) and all these sweaters are making me so stoked for fall!
