Hello Lover

OK, admission:  I might have bought myself a few things this weekend including this new red Chanel bag.  I was pondering a few different bags here but I decided instead to go for classic Chanel but with a pop of color.  There were also other things acquired in my haul to be shared at a later date, including some Jason Wu for Target.

Outfit details: J Crew sweater, Diane von Furstenburg trousers, Valentino shoes (similar here), Chanel bag, J Crew and Elisha Daniels necklaces

And as for today's outfit, I wore brick red Diane von Furstenburg trousers which were perfect for the debut of the red Chanel bag!



Outfit details: J Crew blouse, Joe's jeans, Jimmy Choo booties, Lady Dior bag, Blumarine necklace, Moschino belt

Saturday I had a day of beauty; manicure, pedicure, haircut, color.  And then I was going out for dinner straight after it all which presented a bit of a challenge.  What could I wear that I could easily walk around in and that was conducive to my pedicure?  The pedi was the real challenge.  It meant no skirts because tights are a pain and no skinny pants or jeans.  I pulled out these Joe's trouser jeans that I've had forever though I was actually rooting around for my J Brand love story wide leg jeans.  C'est la vie, these worked just fine with my fun silk heart printed top from J Crew.

Did you watch the superbowl?  I've got it on as I type this and as expected, I haven't really been paying attention.  That is until the David Beckham bodywear commercial came on.  If that's not attention grabbing, I don't know what is!



Outfit details: J Crew jacket, Nanette Lepore skirt, Prada shoes, Miu Miu bag, necklaces from Chanel and Elisha Daniels, pin from Elisha Danlels, Hermes bangle

Quick post on this Friday (yay) of yesterday's outfit for work, as usual, and a jaunt out for the Zoora trunk show and then a bite with my local blogger bud, Lani of Mon Petit Chou Chou.  If you haven't checked out Zoora yet, what are you waiting for?  They sell clothing from local and independent designers with an eye toward customization to fit your body. 

Happy Friday!


Stripes and Retail Therapy

 Outfit details: J Crew blouse (here or similar Equipment version here), J Crew pixie pants (here), Stuart Weitzman shoes (get them here), Miu Miu bag, Milly jacket, Chanel, J Crew and Ann Taylor necklaces

I know, I'm a poster child for J Crew but latetly there is almost nothing in that store that I don't love.  I had a boatload of stuff in my virtual shopping cart and after a rough day yesterday, I left work at a relatively reasonable hour and hit J Crew to check out their wares in person.  I left with this striped silk blouse that I paired with the J Crew pixie pants that I already had.  Ummm, and I should add that I also pulled the trigger on the stuff in my online cart since the online shop had lots more than what they had in person.



 Outfit details: J Crew cafe capris, Ann Taylor chambray top, Talbots sweater, Stuart Weitzman booties (very old), Chanel necklace, Noir cuff (via Gilt)

Another day, another pair of J Crew cafe capris.  The color and texture make this one of my favorite pair of trousers.  I had initially thrown this top and sweater on with jeans and since I wasn't feeling it, I pulled the trousers out of the closet and they pair perfectly with the olive color of the sweater.
