Unless it’s a Bruce Springsteen concert or the 4th of July, an outfit composed of red, white, and blue is usually a “no no” for me. Kind of like wearing red and green around the holidays – another “no no.” There’s spirit and then there’s spirit and the line between the two is very slender - you’re either the obnoxious person who shows up at a holiday party dressed like a Christmas tree or the meany who refuses to wear any sort of patriotic color combo on July 4th. Come on, not even a blue stripe on your sweater? A star? What gives!?
I received this pair of A|X Armani Exchange pants a couple of weeks ago and admit the whole red pants thing is still a bit of a challenge for me. I either go monochromatic or end up looking like I have more American pride than Uncle Sam. But last week I decided to give in to my nationality and hold up my American passport for all the world to see – not really – though as you can see I did go patriotic from head-to-pointy toe. Sometimes you just gotta embrace a look with a big ol’ bear hug and say to hell with what everyone else thinks (or what my mirror is telling me).
Like my pants? Want some of your own so you can give Uncle Sam a run for his George Washington dollar bills? Then check this out and meet me there!

Local Jaunt : Flying A
I know you guys were expecting a “Week in Review” for today, but let’s mix things up shall we?
Ok. Here we go!
The first store on my Mastercard Priceless New York shopping tour list is Flying A, where affordable casual chic jeans, jackets, and jumpers hangout with 1960s boho dresses and romper boots. I admittedly had never heard of this store before but now have it wedged into my hefty list of must-stop Soho shops. I must have tried on over eight pairs of their colorful denim this past weekend and am still cursing myself for not buying a pair of Pour la Victoire chestnut brown boots. Another item on my “curse myself for not buying” list are some ridiculously cute necklaces with teeny tiny animal charms (and when I say teeny tiny I mean it – a little piggy’s tail was less than a centimeter long!). As much as I try to convince myself that my style is sophistication at it’s finest, I have a serious weakness for cute animal accessories. Luckily, now that Flying A is on my radar I’ll have plenty of other opportunities to buy the aforementioned boots and necklaces and all those other pieces I deem as “necessities.”
