Touches of Neon

Outfit details: Valentino dress and jacket, Prada booties, Chanel bag, Alexis Bittar bracelet

October is proving to be quite a busy month. I was out every night last week which was equal parts great fun and exhausting. Tuesday night I was invited to a fabulous event to benefit Mass Eye and Ear. It was held at the Westin Boston Waterfront and the highlight of the evening was a performance by Jennifer Holliday. If you're not familair with her, her claim to fame is that of being the original "dreamgirl". She serenaded us with And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going which was out of this world.

Trying Something New



Outfit details: St. John sweater, AG jeans, Céline loafers (similar here), Akris cape (similar here and here), 3.1 Philip Lim bag (similar here and here), Hermés bracelet

I wore this outfit last Sunday to a fun brunch with Lani. I had decided recently that I wanted to give the distressed denim trend a try. I wasn't sure if it was for me but had seen the look on so many women who I thought looked great. I tried on a few pairs last week and ended up with this pair by AG. I wanted a pair that weren't too distressed and I wanted a darker denim and these fit the bill.

Favorites from Last Fall


Outfit details: Tahari top and skirt, Tory Burch coat (similar here), Valentino shoes, Saint Laurent bag, Hermés scarf, Lee Angel necklace

I bought this navy peplum top and pencil skirt from Tahari last year and they are still some of my favorite fall items. I especially love the asymmetrical peplum on the top and what's not to love about a classic pencil skirt? I popped the navy with bright pink accessories.

Blue McQueen Dress

Outfit details: Alexander McQueen dress (sleeveless version here and other options here and here) and bag, Burberry jacket (options here and here), Manolo Blahnik shoes (similar here and here), Hermés bracelet

This Alexander McQueen knit dress was one of those things I got in the end of summer sales. It was 70% off the original price and meets so many requirements. It's my favorite fit and flare shape, it has sleeves (yay) and it works most seasons of the year. Topped with my Burberry leather moto jacket (which was also a sale buy a year or so ago) and it made for a perfrect fall outfit.

Borrowed From the Boys


Outfit details: 10 Crosby Derek Lam blazer (similar here), Sportmax trousers (similar here and here), Akris cape (cool options here and here), Céline shoes (other options here and here), Hermés bangle, HRH Collection necklace, Balenciaga bag 

I was in NYC last weekend visiting my sister and her fam. My brother in law was kind enough to watch my little nephew so that my sister and I could do a little shopping and have a nice lunch out. I had been contemplating getting some oxfords but wasn't sure if they were my style. I tried on this black and white pair and decided to go for it. What do you think of the look?

My sis and I had a lovely lunch at Telepan on the Upper West Side. If you're in the neighborhood at brunchtime, I highly recommend the house smoked brook trout and the patty melt.
