Miss Independent

Ann Taylor top, Sara Campbell skirt, Cambridge Satchel bag

In an ode to Independence Day, I dressed to the beat of my own drummer.  Instead of the expected red, white and blue, I opted for pink, white and green.  Go figure.

Pour la Victoire sandals, Sequin Palm Beach necklace

I pulled this pink and green Sara Campbell embroidered skirt from my closet that hasn't been worn in a year or so.  I paired it with an Ann Taylor floaty white top (from year's ago) that was perfect for this hot summer's day and gave it an extra punch with a fluorescent pink Cambridge Satchel bag.

I hope you all had a great weekend!



I Love Ruffles!

Lavia eyelet top, RED Valentino skirt, Michael Michael Kors cardi

Do you ever find something in your closet that you had totally forgotten about but you just love?  That's what happened to me when I got dressed on this morning.  I got the ruffly RED Valentino skirt last summer and it was one of my very favorite things to wear and here it is now in it's first appearance this summer.

J Crew necklace, Hermes bangle, Stuart Weitzman sandals

Plus I got this eyelet Lavia top at Saks on sale last summer and it too made regular appearances in my summer wardrobe.  So when I pulled these two things out this morning, I was doubly happy.  And can I just say how much I adore these sandals?  They remind me of the woven Pradas that I've seen but for a much smaller pricetag.  Add that to the fact that there was a mini emergency in my office today which required me to trot down 30 flights of stairs in these babies and they are one of my more comfortable pairs of heels.


Black & White/Stripes & Dots

DVF top, Sara Campbell skirt, Tiziana handbag

Most days I dream at night about the getup for the next day but for some reason I went to bed the night before with this in mind.  I made a few minor modifications but I had envisioned the floaty black and white DVF top with a dotted Sara Campbell skirt from my closet's archives.

Elisha Daniels necklace, J Crew sandals

I gave thought to wearing a nude shoe (I mean, I have so many!) or maybe a bright red but opted instead for these J Crew suede sandals which not only look great but are super comfy.

Hermes bangle, LV ring, Ann Taylor belt

I accessorized with an Elisha Daniels multi chain necklace, Hermes bracelet, LV ring and Ann Taylor belt.

Miu Miu How Do I Love Thee?

Let me count the ways...

One, perhaps I need a dramatic stairway on which to have my shoes strewn all over the place.

Two, oh the pink and the glitter, love, love.

Three, the feminine print of the dress, the curve of the heel...

Four, this bag is calling my name.


Miu Miu, your fall 2011 campaign is fab!
