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.

That’s Just My Crazy Old Aunt…

September 18, 2011

Last Sunday there was a birth in the family, and I expected to be in the delivery room. However, the baby came very suddenly on Sunday morning — the birth was estimated for the afternoon — so I arrived afterwards. And then one of my (so-called) friends informed me that I was man repelling like a champion. That I most emphatically cannot deny.

This baby is going to have way too many crazy aunts.

And I’m pretty sure that everyone in the hospital thought I was a crazy too, considering that I was at New York-Presbyterian/Weil Cornell.

Saturday Brunch

September 10, 2011

On Saturday (as in last week, sorry, I know) I went to meet my friend Devon, who just graduated from law school and is working in New York now. She snapped a photo of me near Stuyvesant Square and I took this photo of her in Gramercy.

We went to petite abeille and had good things to eat.

We walked by Kate Spade and went to Ann Taylor for the awesome sale (and she had a gift card!!).

Later at night I went to my friend’s apartment and we took some fun photos on her roof.

Fall and I are Thinking Alike

Worn on Tuesday 11 Nov 2010

Thoughts:  I love to buy things while I’m traveling (especially abroad) because it means the chances that someone else will have it are very slim (not that I wouldn’t buy last year’s fabulous low wedge boots from Target if they were still available).  Especially if it’s one of a jewelry designer’s “it’s the only one I made just like that” kind of pieces.  I got it at the night market in Rome as I was quite desperately speaking English and Italian to the vendor, and I don’t know if I was intelligible at all but I did eventually get the necklace— and by got the necklace I mean I handed over a €20 and received some change.  It was under €20 (maybe under €15, I notoriously can’t count) which is absolutely amazing in Rome at any time, even back in the day in 2005.  Anyway, it’s 5+ years old now and I still have it.  Most of the things I’ve had the longest originated very far away from where they are now and turned out to become some of my favorite pieces.  

If you’re looking for comments/notes, I moved them from the post header to the bottom of the post, is that less confusing?  I admit I like them much better at the bottom, it’s more natural not to scroll back up to the top of the post!  It took me a while to figure it out, I’m not as good at coding as I was in high school.  If only I could figure out how to move the post title to the post header… Of course, it would be better if I wasn’t trying to do that last night when tumblr was broken!  

LuLus.com blouson (a gift from my cousin last Christmas), necklace from the night market, Joe’s Jeans denim shorts (the find of the summer, $40 from Marshalls), Assets by Sara Blakely tights (Target but no longer available on the website in black), Sofft shoes (looking back… I wish I would have worn different shoes).
