Hot Pink

posted awhile back about Boston's upcoming Hot Pink Party. Well it has now come and gone and it was a superb event raising over $1 million for breast cancer research.

The party was in the new Shapiro wing of Boston's Museum of Fine Arts and the space was just incredible.

The flowers and centerpieces were beyond beautiful and the tables were perfect outfitted in pink and white stripes care of Brooks Brothers.

The food was prepared by Boston's own Ming Tsai of Blue Ginger, Daniel Bruce of Meritage and Michael Schlow of Via Matta and Radius among others.

As for what I wore, I opted to stand out in a sea of pink by staying neutral in gray and white. I love this striped Kate Spade dress that I wore with platinum Valentino heels and because it's chilly and rainy, I wore a Sara Campbell jacket from the archives of my closet.


Neon Red

I happened upon this neon red nail polish at American Apparel. In this picture it looks more orange but in different light it looks like a bright neon red. I just love it.

So imagine my sheer delight at having found these Rag and Bone jeans in the same color.

Worn with the trusty H&M trench cape that has been ever so handy in this ridiculous May New England weather that feels like March.

In NYC to celebrate a friend's birthday, we spent most of Saturday hopping around SoHo.

Words to live by: Make a little conversation, drink a little pink wine.

All the ladies were literally kicking up their heels!

Happy birthday Missy Jane! We loved celebrating with you!


Sky Blue

Catherine Malandrino top, Zara trousers

You probably know by now that one of the highlights of my day is getting dressed. I get loads of satisfaction and joy from my daily ritual of throwing my getups together. But I must admit that the last couple of days, I've been uninspired due mainly to my not sleeping well coupled with working like a dog.

Elisha Daniels and Nava Glazer necklaces, Valentino shoes

Today was the first day this week that I woke up feeling refreshed so I was thrilled to wear something fun which consisted of this sky blue Catherine Malandrino top with Zara trousers and my favorite studded Valentino shoes. By the way my lovely co-worker, who I think is amused by the daily fashion show, called my shoes the "dog collar shoes".

Stripes and Dots and Wings

Sinclair top, Reiss blazer, Ann Taylor skirt, Valentino shoes, Balenciaga bag

Sorry for my absence for a few days, blogger was down towards the end of the week last week which caused all sorts of ruckus. Things thankfully are back to normal. I was heading to NYC for the weekend after work on Friday so I wanted to wear something that would be fun for a night out once I got there. I had decided on this knife pleated, polka dotted skirt from Ann Taylor. My first instinct was to add a splash of bright color on top but instead decided to mix it up with another pattern that complemented the dots. In this case, I chose a top with subtle stripes but also played with texture with the pleats and ruffles.

I got my splash of color with a red Love Moschino belt and felt like I was going to fly away with the exaggerated ruffle sleeve.
