The Shorts Suit
Summertime always has a more casual feel; from outdoor BBQs to a day spent by the pool, my summertime outfits rarely get fancier than a silky dress. While some of this is because I don’t do well in heat and New York summers are like living in a sweaty shoe, it’s also because if I’m not wearing a breezy dress then I’m likely wearing casual shorts and a billowy top. It’s only from seeing Jill Stuart’s spring/summer 2012 collection that I even considered a shorts suit. What a way to look polished without sweating your ass off! Expect to see me sporting one of these fancy numbers in the next few weeks. I’ve currently got my eye on a denim one by Acne.
Affordable Jewelry At Your Fingertips
Are you ready for a seriously intense shopping post? Good! Me too.
Last week I had a request from a reader to feature some affordable jewelry to add to her growing collection. Well, ask dear reader and you shall receive! I know what it’s like to see things in a store that are ridiculously expensive and feel like you’ll never be able to dress a certain way cause you don’t have the mula dula in your bankula (*read: insufficient funds in bank account). That’s where I come in.
Allow me to lend my personal shopper skills and show you a variety of bracelets, necklaces, and rings all for under $50! No scouring in the bargain bins for you, no siree!, these are pieces that I either own or am currently craving from a number of my favorite shops. Now lets go get our bling on! Exclamation points!!!
