Animal Instincts

Equipment blouse, Joe's jeans, Valentino shoes, Balenciaga bag

I got through my hump day with a casual outfit of jeans and another favorite Equipment blouse; this one an animal print version.  I really can't get enough of these blouses and since I took a night off last night with no work meetings, I decided to keep it casual.

H&M jacket, Aris Geldis necklace, Hermes scarf

It was topped off with this little H&M jacket that I bought last spring. 

I'm thrilled the week is near its end.  Happy Friday everyone!


Feast for the Eyes

One of the shows I had the opportunity to attend during Boston's fashion week was for Galvin-ized Headwear.  Being the hat and fascinator lover that I am, I was thrilled.  But I must admit, I didn't know what to expect for a show such as this.  Marie Galvin is a very talented milliner who has a studio in the South End that I highly recommend checking out if you've never been.  But how would the hats be shown? 

This show exceeded my expectations.  Some hats were whimsical. Some were architectural.  Each hat was a work of art.  And all the hats were shown with clothes and shoes from Neiman Marcus.  There was just so much eye candy from head to toe, I didn't know where to look.  So feast your eyes on Marie Galvin's show.

The Shoes of Boston Fashion Week

I've had the pleasure of attending a few of the shows at the tent for Boston Fashion Week.  I have a recap in the works but off the runway, I saw several pairs of eye catching shoes.

I love the ankle wrap.

These boots are super cool.

The lovely gal sitting in front of me had on these fabulous bestudded shoes (you know how I feel about anything bestudded).  She is the creative director for a fabulous magazine called Papercut.  How this magazine has escaped me until now is beyond me but check it out here.  But back to the point of the shoes; they are by a local Boston shoe designer named Zack Lo.  You can check him and his ah.may.zing shoes out here



Sunglasses: Celine, Top: DVF, Skirt: Missoni for Target

Shoes: Miu Miu, Handbag: Balenciaga, Necklace: J Crew

I spent the day yesterday prancing about Boston with my mother who was in town visiting.  It was nice for so many reasons.  I loved having her here, it felt great to have a day off and the weather was gorgeous which meant it was a perfect day for an al fresco lunch and walking Newbury Street.  It's back to work for me tomorrow after a long weekend and I'm dreading how much I have to do.  So, it's off to bed for me. 


Fall Love Story

Zara jacket, Talbots top, J Brand jeans, Hermes belt

One day it's fall, the next it's summer again.  But this day was fall and I wore a new Zara jacket with the trusty J Brand Love Story jeans.  I love how they are fitted at the top and have such a great flare at the bottom. 

Chanel and J Crew necklaces, Celine bag, Hermes scarf

And you can kind of see them peeking out of the bottom, but I kept those darned Pour La Victoire shoes that I was annoyed about a few weeks ago (post here).  I hemmed and hawed, not wearing them in case I decided to return them.  But on this particular day, the shoes won out.
