Behold the quintessential all black New Yorker outfit. No, not necessarily “exciting” (hey, Rooney Mara gets away in all black all the time!), but when you’re hitting the pavement searching for apartments all day you gotta go with something that provides at least one of the following: comfort, functionality, and spandex. I went with all three.

There’s something to be said for all black ensembles (though I’ve said it before here and here…and here…), for though they can at first appear Boring with a capital B, you’ll soon learn that it’s all about the details.

Continue reading, young grasshoppers.

Take these pants that want to call themselves leggings. Leather paneling on the front, stretchy spandex in the back, thus separating them from the Ugg boots and sorority sweatshirt requirements — or so I like to think. Then you have the sweater - which isn’t really pictured here as it was too cold to remove my sleeping bag parka and I was suffering from a caffeine high (see penguin photo below) - featuring the wonderful inside-out look where hemlines and seams get a standing ovation. And lastly, the shoes. I’ve wanted wedged sneakers since Spice World came out and my Mom refused to buy them for me. Well look at me now, Ma! Wedge sneakers on me feets!

And there you have it; a basic outfit that gets its thrills in the details. Note: colorful nails and some jewelry always help, too!

Impersonating penguins standing on one foot is one of my specialties.

The pose above is me freezing cold. These outdoor winter style posts are hard I tell ya! Thankfully, Denim Supply, Ralph Lauren’s newish heritage line, sent over this cozy buffalo plaid sweater so I can feel like I’m curling up in a log cabin even when I’m freezing my tootsies off in the city!

I pretty much lived in this thing when I was back in San Francisco and am happy to report it’s become a New York City staple as well. Perfect for layering or worn on it’s own like so (though I did have a jacket on before and after the photo shoot), this plaid mama is only going to get better with wear and maybe even a little tear (I’m seeing some ripped elbows in my future). After all, heritage collections are all about worn in comfort, right? Right.

is that a smile of happiness or frozen delirium?

it’s a buffalo hoe down!

I know that a fashion blog is supposed to be all about showing off interesting outfits consisting of pieces that one wouldn’t necessarily think to put together, but I gotta tell ya, sometimes I just wear a simple pair of jeans and a t-shirt. This is an example.

After spending a few hours decorating our Christmas tree yesterday, I went for a little shopping stroll on Hayes street to hunt for some last minute Christmas presents and obviously a few treats for myself as well (I’m a brat). Feeling a little jet-lagged and sore from my flight (getting older is awesome…) I threw this casual outfit together and topped it off with a bold necklace from Samantha Wills to give the look that extra little  je ne sais quoi. Though not the most interesting outfit I’ve put together, it’s damn comfortable and sometimes that’s all that matters.
