Alexander Wang Dress and Studs at Lincoln Center

Dear Silvergirl,

I did not get photographed by any photographers, unless it was very stealthily. This is the full outfit from this post with all my blogger friends. I just keep on wearing this dress. Everyone has probably seen it about fifty times, so I try to keep it interesting. This season I modified it a little and gave it one sort-of sleeve, but it’s the same favorite Alexander Wang dress from Sun Showers, Waterfront Sunset, and Going South for the Winter. I wear it so much that it’s getting faded, so I guess I should get some of the dark Woolite detergent. …

Waterfront Sunset

Dear Nnenna,

I’ve been doing a lot of sunset photography in addition to all the night photos we’ve been taking over the past few weeks. I love when it’s a little bit cloudy and all the colors are more vibrant… probably because I always seem to be wearing black when there’s a pretty sunset around. But this was a cloudless, clear day, so there’s only a hint of gold and pink. …

A Black Dress Again in Black and White

Dear Caitlin,

Sorry I’m so boring. All I have for you today is another black Alexander Wang dress. Sometimes I think you’ll get tired of me wearing the same things all the time and then you won’t come and visit any more. I can’t help it though, I don’t think I’d mind at all if my entire wardrobe consisted of black draped jersey dresses. They certainly are becoming a staple– I’m up to three now. …

When Bloggers go to Blogger Events in Alexander Wang

Dear Shen Dove,

On Friday I was lucky enough to get together with fashion bloggers Katy, Nnenna, and Jamillah! We went out to two fun fashion week events. You might remember that we met in person for the first time last September and were together for the first Bloggers Night Out. For F/W 2012 we added the Lulu*s Style Studio event to our plans. We picked up loads of fun free products before heading uptown to Bloggers Night Out, which had an unbelievable turnout. It was so packed! I’m so glad we didn’t check our coats. Definitely the longest line of the night.

I originally planned on wearing my 4.5 inch heels, but my knee injury started feeling weird in the middle of the day so I ended up in my often-photographed MIA ankle boots again. It started snowing while we were out so the boots ended up being an excellent choice (they have little treads on the bottom). I’m wearing my Alexander Wang Dress (F/W 2011, sold out at Net-a-Porter where I got it during the post-holiday sale), Forever 21 belt (old favorite), Assets by Sara Blakely tights, and MIA ankle boots.

This is also my submission for Bloggers Do It Better: Red! I don’t often wear red clothing, but red lipstick is definitely becoming my go-to lip color. In the past few months it’s been edging out the pink I used to favor. I use Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Lip in Red 8C. It’s by far the best red I’ve ever used and my favorite.


For a few more photos (including inside the gift bags)– …

Going South for the Winter in Alexander Wang

December 24, 2011
Dear Lydia,

There’ve been quite a few days that were definitely warm enough for bare legs, but unfortunately now that heatwave has passed through and I’m in tights once again. After a quick stop in Washington earlier this week, I’m in North Carolina for the holidays.

I wanted to experiment with a looser silhouette with this dress, but I don’t like it as much as the other ways I’ve styled it in the past. If I had a longer sweater I think I would like it a lot more, but this incarnation is not one of my favorite ways to wear this dress (one, two, three, four, five, six).

I’m wearing my Francesca’s Collections cardigan, Alexander Wang dress, Assets by Sara Blakely tights, and Stuart Weitzman shoes. I wore Alex Wang on Christmas Eve last year, too. Maybe it’ll become a tradition.

Merry Christmas! I hope your holidays are merry and bright :)

Between Bridges | Alexander Wang & Foley + Corinna

Dear Silvergirl,

Brooklyn Bridge Park really is one of the best spots in New York, and Shivani had never been so I hopped us over on the F train. Despite the gloom and insane wind it was an unbelievably warm day. In between trains passing through, DUMBO is a quiet neighborhood and I like taking people out of areas that are seen as typically New York. Part of the beauty of this city is the amazing amount of different experiences you can have– sometimes all of them in one day!

Shivani left New York in the early evening and I met Nnenna for some shopping in Flatiron. At 8pm it was still warm enough for dinner outside at Shake Shack, an awesome treat this late in the season. I thought the everyone would have the same idea to dine al fresco one more time before winter sets in, but there were only about five people in line before us. Totally unbelievable, considering I’ve seen an hour long wait during the spring downpours we had earlier in the year.

I’m wearing my Simply Vera for Kohl’s jacket, Francesca’s Collections cardigan, Alexander Wang dress, Assets by Sara Blakely tights, and Born boots. And of course carrying my favorite old Foley + Corinna bag.

Hope you have lots of fun things planned for the holidays! I have lots of traveling to do this week.

Sunset Before the Storm in Alexander Wang

August 26, 2011

A little pre-hurricane fun– I live in the mandatory evacuation zone in New York (#ZoneA), so I trekked to my parents’ in the country and met my friends for tapas and sangria al fresco. I wish I could have gotten more definition out of the dress but it was definitely 7:30pm by the time I took these photos. I guess that means I’ll just have to wear it again soon!

Christmas Eve Dramatic in Alexander Wang

Worn on Friday 24 Dec 2010

Christmas Eve is always a casual, jeans kind of affair… for everyone but me, of course!  I usually wear a dress and some sky high heels or something.  I tried to keep it a little more casual this year by wearing boots.  I really wanted to wear my new dress and I thought really, why not?  You can do it!

I got this dress at the Alexander Wang sample sale last week, which wasn’t nearly as chaotic as expected.  Maybe the news about no shoes and bags made it less of a must-go affair.  There were some fabulously good deals though, especially on T!  I wanted more dresses but sadly all the others would have been impossible to take in in the chest due to the ruching/draping.  And let me tell you that they definitely would have had to be taken in at least two inches on me.  They were all so lovely too.  Sigh.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday full of your favorite things!  I’m hoping I’ll be able to get back, so many airports are closed/closing, but I do love a good blizzard!!

Alexander Wang dress, LOFT belt, Assets tights, Jeffrey Campbell boots.
