find me summer soon

Willing summer to come, and it's almost there! Temperatures at a near high all week :) One of my oldies but favorites, my rainbow, silky & shapeless dress. Paired with some simple ugly plastic sandals that balance out the girliness of the dress a bit, and Miu Miu tagged along :)

spring bloom

Another spring-like day in NYC, and another floral print dress. Love this version by DVF because it's got a bold, playful print offset by the elegant sleeve-drapery and loose cut. Layered over a simple black slip since it's sheer and tied a gold string around my waist to give it more shape. The red trench is a vintage find from the Upper West Side St. Francis Thrift Store perhaps 3 years ago? In immaculate condition when I found it, and even though the sleeves are slightly shorter and truncated, I think it makes for an interesting cut and you can layer sweaters and have a few inches of your sleeve pop out. Totally random but cool. In my books. :)

mirrored sunnie life

Thank god for comfy wedge sneakers. These are AMAZING to walk around all day in (less than 3 inch of a heel) - they're practically like flat sneakers. So perfect when you need to / want to walk and job around the city all day doing errands. NYC is really bipolar this year in terms of waether and how cold it is on any given day, so I always carry a trust beanie around just in case it gets windy (warm ears and feet are the trick to overall coziness/warmth!) Topped off with my too-cool-for-school mirrored sunnies. My pair is from Ebay! For quite the steal at $10. Seriously though, I crush my sunnies so much (I sit on them, smush them in my purse, and complete various other acts of evil against all sunnies that come in my possession, not purposely though...)

Oh and the peasant dress was a gem of a find at the Times Sq F21 one fateful midnight eve of shopping! So amazing. :)

red starlet

Found a cool faux-leather wrap skirt the other day at F21 with a moto-inspired feel to it. Been hunting for the "perfect leather jacket" and there are SO many black variations but I still haven't picked which piece to invest in just yet - thinking a Zara leather one but they don't seem to have any right now?? Anyway. Skirt is an oldie but so perfect for any occasion - softest silk-like material, sheer perfection and a happy bright red. Simple Saturday outfit for a (finally) warmer day in NYC :)

flutter wings

Tippity toed my way through Saturday in this blush pink floaty dress with giant sleeves and a pretty cool shoulder cut-out. It was really nice out (and by that I mean >45 degrees) but still a bit chilly so sported my beanie for adventuring around. Casual flatforms (thank you Chanel forA/W14 for convincing me sporty shoes are more than okay to wear with just about anything...) and the Celine cat-eyes.

hood me

Windy but not-too-cold day by the East River. Shot a couple of my brightest items by the river, including my flatform neon sandals that I've missed! They're a bit chunky and it's hard to keep balance though :[

falling upright

Beanie, big jacket, sunnies to hide my poofy face and weird heels kinda day (Sunday). These heels make my legs so 10x longer than they actually are (thankfully, because I paired them with my cropped, leg-truncating sweatpants that have pockets...). Rainbow tank top slash pretending it's spring weather already (it's not, trust me). Fuzzy velour jacket from the thrift shop and boxed, beaded micro bag.
