Bright Lights Pink City

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of parties.  Each year I attend Boston's Hot Pink Party which benefits the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  I've said it before and I'lll say it again, the BCRF is an incredible organization that funds breast cancer research and they donate over 90 cents of every dollar to fund research. This year's Boston Hot Pink Party raised close to $1.5 million that will fund local New England Researchers. The annual soiree is always great fun but this year's was unparalleled not only in terms of how much money was raised but also for the fact that Jon Bon Jovi performed!  Here are some pictures from the evening.

Outfit details: Issa London dress, Kay Unger bolero sweater, Sergio Rossi sandals, Chanel bag, Rodrigo Otazu bracelet

I opted to forgo the pink and wear this gold knit dress by Issa London with pops of orange.  Note to self on the knit dress; be careful what jewelry you wear as mine kept snagging on the dress.

Pearl Girl

Outfit details: Chanel jacket, sandals and necklace, Worth leather skirt, Balenciaga bag

Can we talk about how much I die over this Chanel jacket with the pearl details on the sleeves?  Chanel, check. Classic black, check.  Pearl details, check check!! I wore this a couple weeks ago to go to the FGI Boston event held at the MFA to hear fabulous Boston author, Bill Kuhn, discuss his newest book Mrs. Queen Takes the Train. The event was great fun, Bill Kunh was ever so entertaining and if you need a fun read, Mrs. Queen Takes the Train is it!

Flower Power

Outfit details: 7FAM floral jeans, McQ blouse, Valentino shoes, Balenciaga bag

I love the victorian floral print of these 7 for all Mankind jeans and I am especially fond of the stretch they have. THe mix of the pink and the chambray in the jeans paired perfectly with my baby pink Balenciaga bag and my new favorite McQ blouse, (that you've already seen multiple times here and here).

Weekend Tidbits :: Liquid Art House


This past Saturday night, my friend Elisha and I bellied up at a super cool new spot, Liquid Art House. L.A.H. is housed on the first floor of the old Renaissance Charter School. When you enter the through the arched doorway you see the loftlike space that is the bar centered by the purple Murano glass chandelier. The back wall is what appears to be a mural but what I think is actually a very large canvas instead.  The art throughout changes regularly and I'm looking forward to going back and seeing what's on display the next time. 

We ate dinner at the bar and the food was quite good. We split an order of gnocchi like dumplings and the roasted chicken; both delicious.  

If you're in the neighborhood, it's definitely worth stopping in for a cocktail to check it out.

Spring Formula


Outfit details: J Crew jacket (old), McQ blouse, Clover Canyon skirt, Laurence Dacade sandals, Prada bag, Hermés bangles

Weekends are often spent doing some version of the same routine; a jog or a trip to the gym, popping to my local florist to spruce up my place with flowers, a bit of shopping and other life maintenance.  These pictures were pre-hair cut and color but I decided to forsake my vanity since I love this Clover Canyon skirt and these fabulous sandals by Laurence Dacade. The skirt fits my basic formula for my body type. Since I'm larger on top and smaller on the bottom, I like tube skirts like this paired with oversized tops.
