New Sunglasses - Céline and Tom Ford

Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend!  Here's an overdue video on some new sunglasses I got from Smart Buy Glasses.  I'm amazed at all the options they have and even more so by the prices.  They are way less expensive than when you buy at most places.
The sunglasses I received are shown below.

Tom Ford Celina sunglasses (c/o) 

Céline Tilda sunglasses (c/o)   

The other glasses that I want to buy are the Fendi and Chloe glasses below.

Daily Outfit :: Weekend Casual


Outfit details: Alexander Wang jacket (other option here), Inhabit sweater (similar style here and here), AG jeans (similar here), 3.1 Philip Lim bag and booties

This is something I wore a couple of weekends ago to the movies. It was chilly outside so I wanted to be warm for the walk there. Plus I like to be cozy in the theater. This is the Alexander Wang moto jacket that I got on sale from The Outnet paird with a cozy cashmere sweather and distressed jeans.


Green and Green

Outfit details: Max Mara dress (other options in green that I love here, here and here) and coat, Gianvito Rossi shoes, Céline bag, Hermés scarf and bracelet, Kenneth Jay Lane necklace

Here's another from the backlog outfit archives. I wore it a couple of weeks ago one day to work. I bought this dress a couple of years ago at Max Mara and had been eyeying the coat but didn't buy it at the time. When I saw it on sale a few months later I snapped it up. This is one of thouse outfits that I should wear more. The Max Mara line is high quality clothing that is beautifully made and this is no exception.


Wine and BRIGHTS!

Outfit details: Alexander McQueen coat, Theory leather leggings (similar), Charlotte Olympia booties (similar options here and here), St. John sweater, Christian Dior bag, Chanel necklace, Hermés bracelet

Again, here I am with a backlog of outfits. This one, from a few weeks ago on a Friday night, I wore to dinner and a friend's birthday party. I'm wearling many of my favorites here. My "amazing technicolor dreamcoat" by Alexander McQueen that I bought last spring and given how much of a statement piece it is, it's surprising how much wear I get out of this. I've worn it with royal blue, hot pink, name it. But here it's paired with another wardrobe staple for me; these wine colored Theory leather leggings. And can we talk about the Chanel necklace? Oh how I love it!

On another note, I'm just back from Florida. I had a quick trip down there this weekend to visit my dad. I took what to me is a very entertaining video of him singing his heart out after a few too many glasses of wine. I may add it to my next video in case you all might too be amused by it too.

I'm now home for the evening after a quick jaunt to Whole Foods to stock up and am now going to veg in front of the telly. First up, The Affair.

Hope you've had a great weekend!
