Oscar de la Renta, J. Mendel, Ralph Lauren Spring 14

Fashion-related musings as of late:

I'm glad to be able to miss most of the craziness that hits the city during New York Fashion Week, but now that it's over I can gaze at all the pretty things. Here are my favorite three Spring 14 looks above - Oscar de la Renta, J. Mendel, and Ralph Lauren. For maybe the first time ever my favorite collection was Ralph Lauren and my least favorite collection was Marc Jacobs. Anybody want to link me to their favorite looks?


In the interest of staring at pretty things I can't afford, I started a board on Pinterest called "My Fantasy Life." There are things I simply cannot do in life: dye my hair lavender, borrow designer couture, get invited to events in which to wear expensive gowns, etc. So I pin things on this board and add a little narrative to each pin ("I'd wear this to the BAFTAS, to present the best actor award to Colin Firth."). Call me delusional, I probably am.


I usually wear a classic red, everyday. But I think for fall, I'm looking for a deep, dark red. Any suggestions? The Tarte Matte Lipsurgence crayon in Fiery is my current favorite classic red, by the way.


I'm a serious fan of the Brooklyn jewelry company Catbird, and there's been this recent trend for midi/knuckle rings (those rings you wear between your first and second knuckle instead of at the bottom of your finger). Since Catbird is a little out of my price range just to try something trendy, I decided to buy some cute not-real-precious-metal midi rings and they're okay so far. I've never worn much jewelry (everything I usually wear are gifts from my husband, nothing I picked out). But I may upgrade to some Catbird midi rings in the near future...


You discover a new blog that you instantly love for its layout and style and voice and then you click the 'about' button and realize that the woman who writes and designs the blog works for the same company as you. You do a quick search and figure out her last name. You open your company's global address book and type in her name and find out that she works two floors below you in a completely different department. Hey oh!

That was me last week. My eyes are peeled for the blogger on the elevators.


THIS WOMAN AND HER PARIS APARTMENT. And her life, in general. Le sigh, am I right?


One final, non-fashion related anecdote --I think I got that good news. I think I got The Call.


  1. I went to a blogger meetup and found out that a blogger there lived in the same building as me just one floor up. Crazy small world sometimes.

    Curious as to what The Call is but YES for good news :)

    1. That's crazy, G! So weird. I love that the world is small though... makes everything seem interconnected.

      I should have more deets on The Call soon... sometimes things evolve very slowly... testing my patience, really...
