Thoughts

My dear readers, I haven’t blogged in ages and I’m mad! I lost all track of my personal life during September, work got too hectic. But I realized that I am the only person who can institute balance in my life. So now I’m determined to create it. I kept wanting to write but can you believe that the one…

Fall Must-Have #1: 1960’s Mod Hair + Makeup

The number one top thing I am excited to for this Fall is my favorite hair and makeup style: The Mod Look — long bangs, longs lashes, total tribute to the 1960’s. I tried bangs for the first time last Fall, (upper left photo) when I snipped my fringe so I could be Cleopatra for Halloween. And ever since I’ve been obsessed.…

Fall Must-Have #2: The Little Wool Dress

Cooler weather means warmer clothing but that doesn’t ever have to sacrifice style. Must have #2 on my list for this season is the perfect little wool dress. Move over LBD! I love the look of short dresses with long sleeves — they’re equally chic and covered up, yet totally the opposite of a sleeveless over-the-knee shift dress. The combination…

Fall Must-Have #3: The Taupe Sweater

If you know me at all, you’ll know how much I adore taupe. It’s pretty much my favorite color, well currently at least!  My personal pet name for taupe is chocolate milk, or a pale latte. The color is just a perfect combination of blush pink and khaki and gray. It’s so beautiful — it’s a non-color. And there are so…

Fall Must-Have #4: The Suede MacAlister Boot

I think this next must-have for Fall is totally self explanatory. No other shoe more perfectly radiates autumn than a suede MacAlister boot. I’ve actually wanted a pair for years but could only ever find pairs that were for men. Well, finally the shops have caught up with me, 😉 , and come up with this great assortment. Options for…

Fall Must-Have #5: Fur Accents

Well, love it or hate, fur {and faux fur!} is back for Fall. But unlike those gaudy floor-length coats of years ago, fur this season makes an appearance in little touches as an accent on clothes rather than exclusively on outer wear. I personally have always liked little fuzzy touches here and there, on scarves, border of gloves and I adore it…

Fall Must-Have #6: The Navy Wool Trouser

The easiest thing to default to when cooler weather comes is that regular old dependable black pant. And for casual settings? Dark denim of course. But I personally believe in a perfect hybrid of the two. Capturing the refined formality of a black trouser and crossing it with the deep hues of jeans is my #6 pick for must-haves this Fall. Welcome to the…

Fall Must-Have #7: The Tweed Blazer

In the mad anticipation for Fall I thought it only fitting that we do a fun countdown series of posts to ring in September! I’ve been long wondering {for years perhaps} what the perfect Fall pieces are for me. What are the items that I know I would love for years to come? As I come into my own sense of…

Vintage Handbags

Ok I couldn’t resist doing another post on the many treasures of the Brooklyn Flea! Check out this fantastic table of vintage shoes and bags, but the handbags really took my breath away. This seller had many sizes and colors of structured ladylike bags, an old favorite. Which one do you like best? I wonder if you can guess my…
