I just love cold weekends in the fall/winter.  There's something about this weather, or maybe the holiday spirit that always puts me in a good mood. 
I've spent this weekend visiting the Museum of Modern Art (oggling Edvard Munch's "The Scream"), curling up on the couch with a good book (& cozy blanket), & tonight I'll be having a pre-Thanksgiving feast with my best friends (for which I'll be making my specialty- Tiramisu).

Just a friendly reminder to get out and vote tomorrow November 6th!

I'm back after a brief hiatus due to hurricane Sandy.  I feel very lucky to have come out of the experience unharmed, & am in shock/disbelief at the devastation the hurricane caused.

This past week I've been home from work & only able to go as far as my legs can take me (mass transit was practically nonexistent & I don't drive).
So I've been exploring my new neighborhood, catching up on chores, & watching the news/politics.

Off Balance

Forever 21 Jacket, Zara sweater, 7 For All Mankind jeans, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Topshop boots, Marc by Marc Jacobs watch, J. Fay earrings, Topshop & Forever 21 rings

There's something about a chunky knit sweater that makes me just want to live in it.  Especially when I'm feeling sick (like today).  This sweater feels like a warm blanket wrapped around me all day and it's so easy to style.  So you'll probably see me in knits for the next few months.

Coat Shopping

It's a cool, rainy Friday, and I had the day off.  
That mean lots of errands 
...& of course doing some online shopping.

I'm currently looking for a new coat (seeing as many of mine are worn out and getting holes in them).
It needs to be classic, moderately warm, and versatile, but with a slight edge.

Here are a few that I think fit that criteria.
What's your favorite?

H&M sweater, Vince wide leg jeans, Uniqlo cashmere scarf, Steve Madden heels, Rebecca Minkoff bag, J. Fay earrings, Topshop heart ring, H&M ring, Forever21 "love" ring

I've been searching for a pair of high waisted, wide leg jeans for ages... and last week I finally found the perfect pair from Vince at Nordstrom Rack.  Normally I admire the clothing from Vince, but never actually purchase it because it's a bit out of my price point.  But these jeans were so discounted, and so perfect that I just couldn't resist.

Fine Wine

H&M leather jacket, Old Navy sweater, Zara pants, Born on Concept boots, Lucky Brand scarf, vintage Coach bag, Nordstrom earrings, Forever21 & Topshop rings

As you all probably know by now, oxblood is the color of the season.  But I personally hate the name.  I prefer to think of it as burgundy... or to be more specific- 'fine wine.'

Falling For You

H&M leather jacket, J. Crew denim shirt, 7 For All Mankind jeans, Topshop boots, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Forever 21 scarf, 
J. Fay earrings, Topshop ring

Is it just me, or does the start of a new season make you fall in love with your wardrobe again?  
The past few days have been in the mid 50s in NYC... so I've been having fun layering up in my favorite scarves, jackets, & boots.

Suit Up

H&M blazer, Zara blouse, H&M shorts, vintage Dooney & Bourke bag, Steve Madden heels, Free People sunglasses, vintage earrings, Kate Spade necklace, Topshop ring

I'm usually not one for business attire (my job doesn't even call for it), but when I saw this short suit at H&M last week I just couldn't resist. I love it's neutral color scheme because it allows me to pair it with fun colors and prints.  And the shorts keep it fun and playful, and not too business-like.

Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere

Club Monaco dress & belt, Kate Spade bag (as a clutch), J.Fay Earrings, Kate Spade sunglasses, Kate Spade necklace, Topshop ring

I recently found this amazing, silk Club Monaco dress at "Second Time Around" (a secondhand, consignment store).  There are locations not just in NY, but all over the US...  I highly recommend checking one out in a city near you:  Second Time Around

As you can probably imagine, it was pretty tough walking around cobblestone streets in those heels.  The things we do for fashion...

NYFW wrap up

Zara sweater, Gap t-shirt, Zara skirt, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Crown Vintage boots, Kate Spade sunglasses, Marc Jacobs watch, J. Fay earrings, Topshop & H&M rings

New York Fashion Week was a long and tiring, yet exciting week.  I couldn't get to as many shows as I would've liked this time around because I had to work. But next time I will make sure to put in some vacation days ahead of time so that I can get the full experience.

This was an outfit I wore earlier this week while attending shows.  My new burgundy MAM bag (from Rebecca Minkoff) was a life saver during fashion week. It was able to hold my DSLR, a pair of flats (a necessity in NYC), makeup, and pretty much everything I needed.

P.S.  I'm so excited for fall weather/fashion that I'm wearing jackets even when the sun is shining.

Erin Bar SS2013

Late 50's, femme fatale was the vibe of Erin Barr's spring/summer 2013 presentation at New York Fashion Week.  The black, white, & red theme keeps each look classic while cut-outs, leather, & thigh high slits provided a modern edge.

Cateye glasses, clean angles, unexpected details, side-swept updos, & pops of red...
it's no wonder Erin Barr's collection was one of my favorites so far.
