weather aka white + leather

top Abercrombie “theresa
leather skirt Lida Baday, shoes Alexander Wang “tempest”, cuff BCBG similar here, bag vintage

I found this leather skirt on ebay (of course) and was praying that it wasn’t too good to be true. When it arrived in the mail i couldn’t believe my fingers… it was as buttery soft as it could be and when i saw it had a raw edge it was a done deal. Now the sweater is a different story, i haven’t shopped at abercrombie since i was in college and can barely stand to even walk by one with the booming music and stench of cheap cologne. But i have been looking for a white sweater for a while and saw this in the window as i passed by. After seeing the price tag and the extra long arms i had to have it in gray and white. Alexander Wang makes the dreamiest shoes and although these look uncomfortable they are like walking on a cloud.

jacket isabel marant melow , dress isabel marant, belt vintage, booties dolce vita jamison

I’m obviously obsessed with anything isabel marant and this jacket is no exception… i finally shelled out some actual retail bucks for this jacket and its the best choice i have made fashion wise in a while. The dress was another eBay score that I was absolutely blown away with as soon as i opened it!!! Anyone that wants an amazing and versatile jacket for fall should definitely invest in this piece.

Top Zara Jumper, Skirt Aqua by Bloomingdales, Shoes Dolce Vita “Jamison”

I liked this top so much when i saw it in Zara that i bought it in black as well… there is something so delicate about the way the lace lays on my shoulder that i almost can’t quit gazing down. These are always my go to booties… they remind me so much of isabel marant dicker booties but without the price tag. Just looking at these pics and i’m already planning on what to wear next with this lovely jumper.

Dress A.L.C. “Madeline”, Shoes Givenchy, Bag Alexander Wang “Lia”

Im not sure what i love more… the lincoln memorial or this A.L.C. dress… its a toss up. This dress is one of the most flattering and beautiful dresses I own and i could literally wear it once a week. The shoes are my latest ebay steal and my very first pair of Givenchys… they didn’t disappoint.

I am absolutely in love with New York and during fashion week it is even more alive… the only thing i needed was a lot more money and at least another week to really do it right.  This dress reminded me of an Acne dress but with a much smaller price tag because i happened to find it in a little boutique with no brand name.  I am obsessed with the Hermes Collier De Chien and when i saw this similar version in BCBG for a fraction of the price I jumped on it.  Its not quite the Hermes.. but until then this will have to do.

The girls turned out to be quite natural at having their photos taken…and even picked out their own outfits… not too shabby for their first post. Who doesn’t love chevron prints right now and when you find them at Forever 21 its makes life a little easier. Zara kids makes some of the cutest kid’s clothes and this mint tank is no exception. Especially love it paired with a chambray skirt. This long silk skirt was a steal off Gilt Groupe and I paired it with a fabric market tank I had copied off an old Helmut Lang shirt. Its always fun seeing how style evolves over time and as you get older. There is one similarity among all age groups and it is that getting dressed never gets boring.
