Ready For Fall {scoring the bag and shoes on sale: burberry chelsea boots and alexander wang tote}

I could not be more ready for the Fall, (literally) in every way possible. The shoes, the clothes, the weather and the upcoming school year are all very much on my radar screen. Luckily, I was able to score my big pieces on sale in the past few weeks. The first are these incredible Burberry Chelsea boots. I wandered into Scoop on my day off and got very lucky. They’re awesome. Also, my new school bag! The traditional Alexander Wang Prisma tote but in a classic and durable grey fabric. Another sale item. A.K.A. I’ve been winning and I know this Fall will be too.  Who else is excited?

Pre-Fall Ideas of New and Old {the usual contenders: isabel marant, a.p.c. and more}

While I am somewhat blown away by the thought of Fall, I am also extremely excited. As we received our Fall products at A.P.C. nearly one month ago, Autumn has been on my mind. I decided to put together a few Pre-Fall looks to stir a bit of excitement, while not diving in too fast. I snagged these (sweet) camo pants by Current/Elliott last week. Guaranteed they will be sold out in every store by next month. They have a fantastic fit. Plus, who doesn’t love a nice pair of camo pants? The E. Porselli A.P.C. flats should be familiar to you avid readers. The brown leather bag above will be a new addition to my wardrobe. Another great A.P.C. piece. Are you surprised? The top is a simple Isabel one. Second outfit up is on the sweeter side. Chic The Row cate eye sunglasses paired with this lovely silk A.P.C. ruffle dress and the Isabel Marant bad ass Jenny boots. I’m psyched!

Caribbean Travel Essentials {USVI trip soon & i’m bringing the goods}

In only a few short weeks I will be heading to St. John in the USVI for a little family vacation. I could not be more excited. As the trip draws closer, I am beginning to nail down my beach and travel essentials. This summer I am totally hooked up with the goods. First, my Celine sunglasses, as previously discussed in a former post. They are polarized and perfect for the beach. Not to mention the fabulous color. Second, my beautiful new all white one piece. I love one pieces this season. They are subtle and pretty sexy (if I do say so myself). Third, the amazing A.P.C. cheetah printed beach bag. The carry all, which I recently purchased at our (now finished) sale. Fourth, gold Porselli ballet flats. Simple and great for dinners out with the fam. And finally, Rebecca Taylor sundresses! They are cool and cute. I think I’m almost set. I can’t wait.

Other New Tidbits {darcel disappoints x colette carnival iphone case & new balance m574’s}

Two new purchases that I’m really excited about. I splurged on the Darcel Disappoints x Colette collaboration iPhone case from the Colette Carnaval. I love it. It’s kitschy and fun. If you are unaware of the collaboration, it just looks like a funky graphic case, but if you’re in the know, it’s a fun thing to spot. Alllllso decided to kick it old school with a pair of men’s 574 New Balance sneaks in black. When I saw a friend at work with them, I immediately fell in love. Perfect to pair with girly dresses or my A.P.C. jeans. Buying new stuff feels good.

What I Wore {to the a.p.c. west fourth grand opening party}

Last night was the grand opening party for the new A.P.C. store in the West Village on West Fourth and Perry Street. AKA my place of work. What was my attire for the event? Current collection A.P.C., obviously. I wore the traditional A.P.C. raw denim mini skirt, tan heeled penny loafers, a navy merino wool cardigan and a beautiful gold silk paisley top. It was quite a look. The party had a fantastic turn out, the store was jammed! Definitely a night to remember.

the classic black leather pump {will always be chic and is a closet staple}

Pointy or round toe, I don’t care. Matte black and patent leather pumps are, just so, timeless. I am over geometric and “trendy ” “it” shoes. Probably because they take over my closet, hence my current hatred towards my entire shoe collection. You will hate them too next season (if  you don’t already). My suggestion is to only go top of the line for these, a.k.a (the classic) Manolo Blanik, Jimmy Choo, Giuseppe Zanotti and Prada. They’ll never be bougie, they’ll always be cool. I’m with Garance Doré on this one.
