New York: August 2012

             Recently I was in New York City for a very short trip (two days, one night.) Although it was short my sister, Clare, and I tried to make the most of it. First we went to the Schiaparelli and Prada exhibit at The Met. My sister and I loved the entire exhibit! My mom has been a Prada girl since before I can remember. I mean when I was little my favorite things to do were to stare at my moms Prada leopard kitten heels. My mom was so jealous she couldn't go. Unfortunately I think the exhibit is over for all you Miuccia Prada lovers out there.

    Next, my sister and I went out to eat. Clare and I are huge Todd English fans (We love Bonfire and Olive in Boston), so we decided to go to his restaurant in New York, Ça Va. Ça Va is a french Brasserie. When we made the reservations a few days before, we had no idea that Ça Va was attached to our hotel! The food at Ça Va was so yummy! 

           Later that night we went to see a show, a tradition for my family (my first show was The Lion King when I was five and my sister was two.) There weren't that many shows out that my sister and I hadn't seen, so we decided on Ghost.  I wasn't that excited considering I never loved the movie, I am not a huge P. Swayze fan, but I was pleasantly surprised! It was sad, funny and adorable! I would recommend it for anyone who wants a laugh and doesn't want to take a musical too seriously. 

Not my photo! Forgot to snap a pic!

     The next morning, Clare and I went back to Ça Va for breakfast. We both had are classic favorite, eggs benedict. 

After hours of shopping and froyo from my fave 16 Handles, we ended our trip with the most delicious mini cup cakes from Baked by Melissa in Soho. 


Falling into September

Jeans: J Brand, Seven 4 All Mankind. Sweaters: Wildfox. Boots: Steve Madden. T-shirt: Cheap Monday. Cardigan: Topshop. Shorts: River Island.

With September coming I am so excited for the clothes. My favorite seasons for clothes would have to be fall and spring. While this transitioning time between seasons can bring great opportunities for amaze outfits, it can also be quite awkward. Do I wear shorts? Do I put on pants? Will I be sweating in this cardi or will I be freezing without it? We have all been there.  My philosophy is keep your top and bottom opposites. If you wear shorts pair it with a light sweater, or if you love your new motor cycle boots, try it with a fall dress. While sometimes this can make for a confusing and awkward look, other times it can be the perfect early fall medley. My next purchase is definitely going to be one of these light wildfox sweaters. Perfect for fall and layering in the winter. 

Victoria Beckham: That Silhouette


There are many reasons why I am obsessed with Victoria. The first being her I don't give a sh*t attitude. The second would have to be her history with the best girl group of all time. My favorite thing about Poshy is impecable taste in all things fashion. Her clothing line is absolutely exquisite and perfect for many body types.  But what I love about Victoria Beckham's label, is that she has found what I think is the perfect silhouette. The length is extremely modest but still sexy. These dresses flatter stick thin girls and girls with a little curve to them. With a pair of pumps and this dress, a pretty girl becomes a stunning women. 

All Victoria Beckham

Clearly I am not the only one in love with these dresses, because they grace the bodies of some of Hollywoods A listers. What I adore about these dresses is they feel very mature and very youthful at the same time. You have Demi Moore who is a graceful older woman and then you have young model Candice Swanepoel.
