I’m obsessed with these Rag & Bone Galaxy jeans & have been dying for something leather.  I want leather pants bc they’re awesome AND I can wear them to work! Also really want a leather pleated skirt…

Accessories: I get tired of carrying around huge bags – they’re heavy as is & then I just go crazy filling them up with crap I don’t need.  These cross body bags are light, versatile & gorgeous.  I love everything Alexander Wang & think his bags are the best priced.  That black snake skin botkier bag is on sale, and will dress up any ordinary outfit.  Finally, loving the Cambridge Satchel Co. bags – also super well priced (read: cheap!) and would love mine monogrammed!

Working Girl

Ideal 1st day of work outfit:

Pleated leather mini with cute silk blouse, booties, stacks of rings, and a fall colored bag. Comfy & work appropriate.


New job may mean that I’ll be MIA from wordpress for a lil bit.  I want to focus 110% on excelling in my new role, but you can still find me on Tumblr and Twitter (bc they are way faster/easier to update) in the meantime.  See you soon!

I think I love this. The boy has so many shirts in the closet he refuses to get rid that I can’t wait to play with!

But I do kind of wish I had discovered this 4 months ago…

The weather gets a little colder, the days get a little shorter, the leaves start changing color, and I get another year older…

Also, present season begins!! And here’s what I want:

1) Olympus EPL3: bc after LOTS of online research & hands-on investigating at photo stores, I decided I really like the look & feel of this one.  Obviously, also all its functionalities – most of which I don’t know how to use yet…

2) J Brand eggplant pants (sz 26): bc I live in my J Brand jeans! They fit me just right, are so comfy & I love this eggplant color for fall.

3) TOMS by The Row (sz 8): bc they are warm & comfy & I had to throw out my last pair.

4) Rachel Comey Mars Boots (sz 8): bc they are also comfy and oh so cute/cool! Best of all, they are all-season shoes! Perfect in fall/winter bc they’re boots (duh!) but also great for spring/summer with a cute little dress or cut-offs.  May not be able to wait til my birthday though since they are selling out so so fast!

5) Emerald Diego bucket bag: bc I’m obsessed with green & all things Wang.

6) Anais loafers in rose gold: bc I’m obsessed with rose gold & all things Wang and though I’m not expecting to get them, they’re impossible to leave off a wishlist…

Additional Wishlist items:

Mr. Dannijo stackable rings

Lastly, books! “How to Cook Everything” by Mark Bittman and “Blood Bones and Butter” by Gabrielle Hamilton.

Awards shows (besides the Golden Globes) are usually pretty dull, but last night’s Emmys were so fun to watch!! It was funny, sweet, and the fashion was interesting (instead of safe). Here are my picks for standouts.


Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang


Padma in Armani

This is also a terrible photo but the color just doesn’t work on her skin tone and something about the fit is all sorts of wrong!

Hands down, BEST fall campaign EVER: Lanvin

Have you heard of Arethusa Farm? No? You’re missing out.  It’s Manolo Blahnik milk!

Arethusa Farm is in Litchfield, CT near my parents’ weekend home (yes, I know how obnoxious that sounds. No, I can’t think of any other way to say it – deal).  We’ve been buying their milk for years – its so delicious… typical farm milk really – actually, award winning farm milk!

Anyway, soon after we started buying their milk we discovered the farm is actually owned by the CEO & VP of Manolo Blahnik.  I found it hysterical & totally random but they clearly love their new hobby.  Their cows win all sorts of shows and they’ve recently expanded to making cheese & ice cream.  Arethusa opened up a shop, which also includes space for their production, this summer in the old Bantam fire house. So guess what I did this weekend when I went to CT??

Went to visit of course! And buy ice cream, and cheese, and milk, and try everything! So yummy
