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!

Girl Crush: IHateBlonde

This girl….a friend pointed me in the direction of her Facebook a few months ago and it’s been a growing crush ever since. The girl behind the blog, Rachel, seems to live in WildFox sweaters and Unif Hellbounds; the things my dreams are made of. A gorgeous, blonde New Yorker with style; I’m smitten.

Certifiably bad-a$$ with a killer body and tres effortless cool style; can I just BE her already!?

What do you think of her style? Be sure to check out her blog, IHateBlonde.com!

Feeling Parisian

This look has been in my mind for weeks now, and I finally wore it. Something about it just screams “Parisian”; Is it the stripes? The baroque printed skirt? The Prada knock-off sunnies? Or the combination of the lot?

Sweet Floursecent Enemies

I feel like this is one of the boldest outfits I’ve done before; toying with loose layers and variant shades. I’m still frightful of pattern mixing (it makes my OCD go nuts) but I feel I’m stepping in the right direction with this. Then again, maybe I’m giving myself too much credit.

Neon Cool

A perfect suburban summer casual cool look. Holy hell that’s a lot of adjectives, but it gets the point across. Half the time I feel too old to be rockin’ these “hipster” coined ensembles, but it suburbia, barely employed, I think it’s okay. And, I’m only 22, just barely out of my teens, or so I keep telling myself. There’s no rush to grow up just yet, even if there’s plenty of pressure.

JC+LF+Sushi

Last night I attended the launch of Jeffrey Campbell’s new bag line at a Fourth of July party at LF stores in SoHo.  I walked into free lemonade from girls wearing various pieces of American Flag apparel (totally IN right now, right?) and cupcakes, cake, and everything themed. I immediately found my fellow blogger friends amongst the plethora of associates mixed with the “too cool for school” teenage crowd.

After saying hello and getting accustomed to the situation I took a look around the store. to be honest, I was scared for my life. LF Stores is the epitome of force fed fashion, catering to the personality and personal taste-less followers of the Nylon bible. You’ve got your crop tops, American flag shorts, fringed “vintage” tees, and all-you-can-wear high waisted “vintage” Levi shorts. Oh, and did I mention the Jeffrey Campbell Lita’s?

Amongst the rubble of fashion vomit I managed to find the Sam Edelman heels I’ve been lusting after, as well as this gorgeous kimono.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Okay, so I don’t completely hate the shop. I think, piece by piece, they are some amazing finds. But for the most part, I’d rather not be force fed my daily dose of Nylon Magazine’s poolings all at once.

Anyway, so after waiting through two bag giveaways (one of which was won by my dear friend Monroe!), 6 of us decided to go for sushi at Noodle Zen on St. Mark’s.

Since I’d already had sushi for lunch, I opted for a vegetable tempura udon, which was quite good, especially alongside my orange chu-hi beverage.

Now for what I wore:

Misfits tee from Hot Topic (DIY/cutout myself)

Forever 21 shorts

Aldo Wedges

Gifted R&Em bag (can be found here)

Peter Grimm hat

TopShop bracelets

And now I leave you with this photobooth strip of Nicole and I making funny faces! ❤
