Promptly after moving to New York and having my first Marilyn moment atop a subway grate (except a million times less chic), I decided to start building up my mid-lenth skirt collection. Those minis just catch the city breeze way too easily! Found this gem at the BCBGMAXAZRIA sale last weekend, and couldn’t resist its multicolored quirkiness. I like my clothes with some quirk.

Headed to Boston for the weekend and I’m super excited to explore a new city. Welcoming any/all recommendations for places to see, shop, eat and drink!

Maybe it was my need for a manicure, or the fact that the recent NYC heat has left me uninterested in wearing jewelry, but something about this billboard lured me in. The bold colors…the bling…so glam!

Snapped these shots pre-dinner in the Meatpacking District, after taking in all of the Pride festivities on our walk over. I feel very fortunate to live in such an inspiring, creative, and accepting city. New York really is as good as all the movies and songs make it out to be!

TokyoBay Launch Party in San Francisco - New York City Fashion Blogger

Last week, I had the enormous pleasure of flying out to San Francisco for the Tokyobay site relaunch event. It was so fun seeing old friends and fellow bloggers. Huge thanks to all of the amazing people who made it out, and also to Ryan Chua from Astonish for shooting these picks outside of the party — you rock!

Not only was Thursday a total blast, but I got to spend the rest of my time there catching up with family, and frolicking around the beautiful city I called home for the past seven years. It was almost like I’d never left!

Oh and here is the behind-the-scenes video from when we shot the lookbook several months back…hope you guys like it. :)

Snapped these photos en route to a tea party I helped organize for Pour La Victoire earlier this week. Even before I moved to New York, afternoon tea at The Plaza was at the tip top of my to do list, and it didn’t fall short of expectations. Can’t beat those teeny tiny sandwiches, and you know I’m always game for a little daytime bubbly. Plus, it was a good excuse to dress up, and my new printed pencil dress seemed fitting for the occasion!

Okay, yes, I know what you’re thinking…mom jeans. As if the high waist and light wash wasn’t enough, they had to go ahead and bedazzle them. But let’s face it, moms are cool, and, in my opinion, so are these jeans.

In addition to my reclaimed love-affair with 90′s-inspired embellishments, I’ve been really excited about the peplum trend lately. The main reason being that I have the figure of a young boy, and it allows me to fake some curves! It’s like a padded bra for your hips, and I dig it.
