Mixing Styles

I love taking preppy/conservative pieces and wearing them with something more edgy or non-traditional.  Here, I've paired a preppy seersucker blazer (by Theory) with black "jeather" (jeans/leather) pants and an Alexander Wang tank.

The 2 pics below show the jacket in more detail and my fabulous Gucci bag bought many years ago.  Love the bag for the gold hardware and ostrich trim.

Outfit Details:
Blazer: Theory (on sale here!)
Bag: Gucci (old) 
Nail color: French Affair by Essie

Shoe Obsession - YSL Pump

These shoes make a statement that is fierce and bold.  Totally obsessed with them!
YSL "Loafer" Pump

Black with gold hardware is a big trend for the fall which makes this shoe(or one similar to it) the perfect accessory to add to your wardrobe.   There, I've justified it!

Denim - Star Print + White

In the dead of summer during a heat wave, I know I shouldn't be fixated on denim, but I am!  

All sorts of prints have been really popular this season, but it's the "star" print that I'm obsessed with right now.  I showed the J Brand cropped style in a previous oufit post (here).  

Here it is again with 2 others by Current Elliott:

Just bought a white "Ava" straight leg jean from Citizens of Humanity.  So excited, because these are one of the few white jeans out there where the fit is as flattering as some of my favorite regular(blue) jeans.  Love!

I'll try to do an outfit post with them on soon...

"Work" Outfit of the Day

It's been a really, really hot summer here in the New York area.  Whether you go into a traditional office or not(like me), it's important to have an outfit option to wear in the heat that is polished and professional yet helps to keep you cool.  Here is one idea:
Work Outfit of the Day
top: NSF "Colette", skirt: 10 Crosby by Derek Lam, shoe: Via Spiga "Elysa"(similar here), ring: Heritage Gems, cuff: Ferragamo, necklace: Eddie Borgo, bag: Yves Saint Laurent tote

Studded Clutch and a Rooftop in Manhattan

I'm absolutely obsessed with this studded clutch by Deux Lux.  Small enough to comfortably fit in my hand, yet large enough to hold my essentials: lip gloss, powder compact, $, ID, phone and yes, small camera.  Along with the studs, it is the perfect accessory to add a chic edge to any outfit!  As an added perk, it's entirely affordable at $102! 

Also obsessed with my Lanvin "Wing Ring" (see above).

Top- Joseph
Jeans- J Brand
Shoes- Chie Mihara
Clutch- Deux Lux
Watch- Michael Kors "Runway"
Necklace- Unknown designer, but from a fab store called Elisa B.(Pasadena, CA)
Bracelet- Cartier

Lanvin Accessories

Sometimes the packaging is almost as exciting as the product itself!
 Below are some accessories I bought from Lanvin's Spring/Summer '12 collection:
