Off To Warmer Pastures

I can't exactly complain about the weather we've had this winter in nyc, however i am pretty excited about going to Florida this weekend. As a matter of fact, i should go cause my car to the airport is going to be here any second. Wooohoo.

Spring Shoe Pick

I was asked by Ryan Michael Cheung from (thank you!) to share my footwear pick for this spring and now that the story is live, i'm excited to share it with you guys! Below are my photos, but you can check me out on right here and read my must-know style tip. And here's a confession: i also have these strappy bad boys in fuchsia - i couldn't decide so i got both. This happens often.

The details:
T-shirt - Pencey
Denim - AG
Cuff- Forever21
Bag - Bottega Veneta
Shoes - Zara

Here Kitty Kitty

I cannot get enough of this Lara + Kate editorial - can't wait to get my little paws on the LOVE ss12 issue.


In The Mood For

It's new york fashion week and i wish i could wear this. Alas, it is way too cold. I love the neutral tones and the simple pairings in this look, bust mostly i love the proportions on her tall lanky frame.


Tropical Dreams

The man is currently down under and even if he says that apparently the Australian summer hasn't been exactly good this year, i am still extremely jealous of his momentary sampling of warm air. And even if the New York winter hasn't exactly been, err, wintery this year, i am still SO ready for spring. Or a tropical getaway, whichever comes my way.

Unexpected Find

I know, i know, where have i been? It was a little difficult to blog last week, so forgive my prolonged absence, for i am back. Anyway, here's a story for you - as you all know, yesterday was the official release date of the Jason Wu for Target collection and i just happened to be in New Jersey visiting my boyfriend's parental units. He skeptically happily agreed to stop by a Target before heading back to city so i could check it out, naively thinking that a southern New Jersey Target would not be pillaged only a mere few hours after the collection's release time. This gal was wrong, folks. By the time we got there around 1, there were maybe a total of 10 pieces left (and i'm being generous), all in XL. Major bummer, as i was hoping to grab one of these and perhaps a dress or a top. In a stroke of genius move, i decided to ask the fitting room attendant if there were any JW items in their unwanted pile and, in a mirage-like moment, among the giant mound of rejected clothing lied a lovely blush pink blouse with white polka dots, size medium. I promptly tried it on, got the thumbs up from the boy and made away with my "Jason Wu" piece, utterly satisfied. And with a price tag of 35 bones, i nearly ran out of the store. The end.
