Lots of reasonably priced designer like M Missoni, Kate Spade and Laundry by Shelli Segal as well as some J Crew and other brands. Here’s a sneak peak.

Went out for a much-needed dinner with hubby last weekend. I bought this dress in NYC at the Rebecca Taylor store. It was on clearance and they only had two sizes: 0 and 8. I went with the 8 and had it altered down to a 4. Love it!

Graphic Print

Last week I had an allergic reaction to something (still undetermined but could be a number of things from food to pollen) and had to be taken to the ER. I was diagnosed with angioedema, which merely means swelling of the soft tissue. Basically, my throat and face swelled, not good. The week following has been hell, the steroids make me feel like crap and have altered my mood. Fear not, I’ve turned the corner! I’ve been tapering off the drugs and getting more sleep, ahhhh….

So, this outfit is the first real outfit I’ve had on all week!

The Outfit Deets
Top: Simply Vera Wang for Kohls
Belt: Old Navy
Jeans: J Crew Ankle Toothpick
Sandals: J Crew (2008)
Bracelets: Angela Caputi Amber link bracelet, BCBC spike bracelet (TJ Maxx) and Target watch

Lunch with a Client

Went to lunch with a client the other day. It was casual, so I pulled out some Gap capris. Now, I know I’ve said ad nauseum that I don’t like capris, but I am OK with ankle length pants. These are straight leg and hit at the ankle, a much more flattering look.

The Outfit Deets
Cardigan: J Crew Jackie Cardigan (2005?)
Top: Ann Taylor Leopard sleeveless ruffle top (2009)
Pants: Gap Slim Crop black pants, part of their Premium line, love these pants!
Shoes: Coconuts via Marshall’s

Color Burst

This dress was one of my New York City purchases. I love it, it’s comfy, stylish and the color is to die for! Of course, it’s another of those dresses that is loose and flowy. In my head I know more tailored clothing looks better on me; but in my heart, this just feels good!

The Outfit Deets
Dress: DVF Handy Dress in Brick Red
Necklaces: Flirty Tassel necklaces from Banana Republic, rhinestone wrapped in silk from Target
Shoes: Coconuts from Marshalls ($20!)

The Church Lady

I wore this outfit to church last Sunday. Unfortunately, I don’t really like how it turned out. I think next time I will wear a belt around the cardigan to add a little more polish. The sweater is all crooked. Trend Alert: The longer skirt, mid-length, is in right now. Personally, I think it’s really hard to wear without looking frumpy.

The Outfit Deets
Cardigan: Ann Taylor Loft
Dress: Tory Burch via eBay
Peep toe pumps: Ann Taylor

An Outfit For a Long Day

Saturday was a long day filled with fun events: a friend’s daughter’s first birthday, a high school baseball game and then my daughter’s school friend had her 5th birthday party. Since I was going from event to event, I wanted something that was casual enough for the baseball game but put together enough for the parties. Here’s what I came up with:

The Outfit Deets
Cardigan: Ann Taylor Loft Ikat Leopard
Blouse: Sangria color from Equipment via Shopbop
Necklace: Rhinestone from Target; Tassel from Banana Republic
Jeans: J Crew toothpick ankle jeans
Flats: Tory Burch Edie flats

Playground Photoshoot

I recently had a photoshoot with Playground magazine, so fun! I am not a natural model, in fact, I’m not a natural mover (dancer, kicker, cheerleader, etc.) 🙂 That rhythm gene missed me! I can’t wait to see the pictures and will post them for all of you to see as well. For now, I made Polyvore sets of the outfits. We recreated the balloon girl at the top of my blog.

Outfit No. 1: I wore a skinny black belt and a skinny orangey-red belt around my waist. I wore two complementing chain/black leather belts around my neck as necklaces.

Outfit No. 2: To complement the first outfit, I wore this dress in the Atlantic color (royal blue). I also had a similar tassel necklace along with another camel-colored necklace I got at Target.
