Special Delivery:


When I bought this tuxedo vest from Nordstrom, I didn’t know how it would look in person and if the material would be cheap or luxe.  It arrived tonight and I couldn’t be more satisfied.  The price is right ($78), the length is perfect, and it’s an ideal (and flattering, even while being pregnant!) topper over an elongated tank now or a long sleeve t-shirt when it gets cooler.  I’ll of course do a post on this so you can see how it looks on, once I locate my camera that I prematurely packed away in one of my God knows how many boxes for my move.

Crochet On A Shoestring:


How good is this lace crochet top? I love it for so many reasons, but a main one being that it’s $15! Yes, you read that right.  Sort of hard to believe.  And it comes in other pastels besides this lemon yellow.  Choose the black for a more intense night out look.  I’m loving the yellow and lilac paired with a long white maxi skirt or white cutoff shorts– boho chic at its best.  You’re welcome!

Black, White & A Touch Of Floral:

On my walk home today I stumbled upon a little secret garden.  Thalassa, on Franklin Street, has an influx of fresh flowers and potted plants outside.  I was stopped in my tracks because seeing lush greenery isn’t really the norm in this city.  How perfectly apropos though, as I was wearing my floral sunnies.

To The Max:





I’ve known about the magic of Lilla P.’s t-shirts for almost a decade now.  My second job out of college (first was being Nina Garcia’s second assistant) was doing PR for the brand at a boutique firm.  Known for its super soft (and substantial) t-shirts, Lilla P.  knocks it out of the park again with this racerback maxi dress.   It’s made out of slub yarn and has vertical raised seams that give it a little detail.  I experimented by belting it below my belly, which I find gives an overall more flattering look than belting above.  Cheers to my new dress that I will surely be living in this Summer!

PS: Maxi dresses aren’t reserved for Summer only.  You can wear them with moto boots and a long drapey sweater come the colder temps!

Sandy Beach:

In need of a long overdue mani, I rushed to squeeze one in today after I came back from the holiday weekend.  I opted for something light and sheer, with the notion in mind that I’ll be making boxes, packing boxes and taping boxes this week.  Essie’s Sandy Beach lacks much color but does make your nails look polished and lacquered.
