thred up! nyc, sept.09

ladies and gents, the clothing swap has just gone electronic! imagine a site where you can post items your closet no longer needs...where you list your size and fave brands, styles, colors, etc...and imagine the convenience of not even having to run to the post office to ship the old garb, instead ordering prepaid envelopes to your home and just popping them in a mailbox. thred up!

ebay of the day, nyc, sept.09

show-stopping vintage Beltrami boots!!!

eBay, $129

leather moto: day >> night >> weekend, nyc, sept.09

the moto jacket is a dream come true- perfect silhouette, tumbled texture and asymmetrical zip. this would be an edgy addition to a feminine dress or an interesting layer on a casual weekend look

Look 1for a cool, clean workday look, pair with a neutral, flirty blouse, wool shorts and tights, like this

Look 2
pair it with a sharp black & white combo, toss on a few baggus and head to the flea market

Look 3
for a fancy night out, mix the moto with a bright patterned party dress and kick up those heels!

Look 4
i'd even throw it on over yoga clothes and a puckered scarf for some weekend errand-running

erdem spr10, nyc, sept.09

erdem is a consistent fave of mine, always mastering sweet but structured femininity. these superb pieces are so versatile they'd each look amazing paired with an edgy leather biker jacket or delicate lady-like cardigan, spiky-heeled buckle booties or the perfect pair of round toe pumps.

alice + olivia for payless

how'd i miss this one? alice+olivia did a line for payless and somehow i'm the last to know.

sooo...what are our thoughts on these bejeweled booties? cheesy? cheapy? too much dominatrix? or just enough hotsie totsie?

yay or nay?


Autumn-atic pt.II: the dream team, nyc, sept.09

dear everyone,

may i present to you the dream team -- a few key pieces i'm not willing to live without this fall, in no particular order:

ciggie pant

matchstick ankle cords in black, jcrew

cropped pencil leg jean in ink, j.brand

autumn oxford
dreamy white jazz oxford, etsy

fancy metallic jazz oxford, etsy

blingy cream oxfords, topshop

schoolgirl blazer

this gap blazer is sold out everywhere...HELP

this j.crew one is fab but i think i think I can find a good one closer to $100

driving gloves!!!

in hopes of channeling Grace Kelly's character in To Catch a Thief, i'm on the prowl for a perfect pair of lady gloves.

these ivory driving gloves from etsy are close to perfection, but the $110 price lingers just outside my budget...eeks!

what's on your back to school wishlist???
