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!

Vanessa Seward x A.P.C. Collaboration {the beautiful garments and fabulous launch party at A.P.C. west fourth}

Image

I am absolutely in love with every garment in the A.P.C. x Vanessa Seward capsule collaboration. Vanessa Seward, the former creative director for Azzaro, has teamed up with A.P.C. in this fabulously girly and sophisticated collaboration. There are floral dresses, a little golden brocade and definitely a bit of Beyoncé style glitter. The price tag is not generous, but I promise you it is worth it. The collection launched in New York this past Tuesday at the A.P.C. West Fourth Street store (where I work). The party was a huge success. Please come by to check out the pieces. P.S. Who’s the cutie in the pictures below? (

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

Image

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.

Everyone’s favorite summer event has (nearly) arrived. The A.P.C. summer sale begins June 7 (a.k.a. tomorrow). What does this fabulous sale consist of? Pretty much the entire store at 30% or 50% off. No, the raw denim, quilts, pre-fall and all other off-collection pieces are not included. BUT! All pre-spring, spring and summer items (with only few exceptions) are. The sale will be available online, at the Mercer store and at the West Fourth store. Don’t wait around, get to your local A.P.C. as soon as possible.

Apology Entirely Necessary {sorry for my absence: good day ny, better tv show & an a.p.c. overstock sale}

Image

I am extremely apologetic for my long absence. I have been crazy busy. Not only is my semester finishing (SUMMER), but I have also been working a ton. In addition, my Seventeen Prom gigs have been filmed! Unfortunately due to the termination of the TV show “The Revolution” as a whole, our segment was not filmed. But, the Good Day NY and Better TV show filmings went great! I have attached the links below. Enjoy my Carrie Bradshaw tutu.

In other news, y’all should check out the A.P.C. over stock sale this weekend in Brooklyn! It is at 51 Bergen Street, The Invisible Dog. It is an easy subway ride from Manhattan on the F line. Get off at Bergen Street and you are right there! I found a shearling coat for a steal. Information has been provided below.

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.

Dip Dyed Garments With Fun Spring Accessories {isabel marant obvi, head scarves & de la renta earrings}

These Isabel Marant dip dyed pieces are festive, bright and fun. The pants and shorts are a bit too much for me, but I absolutely love the sweatshirt and shirt dress. The colors are just minimal enough for a dip die. I ordered the dress from Netaporter and almost bought the sweatshirt at Bergdorfs yesterday. I’m obsessed. These pieces are really getting me in the spring/summer spirit. I’m also a huge fan of these scarves below. The gold silk one on the left is A.P.C., of course. The paisley print is a perfect pairing with the luxe gold silk. The Missoni headband is a true classic and a really great way to defeat the heat. While somewhat impractical, I love these Oscar de la Renta earrings. They are 24 k gold with colored enamel. All items are available on Netaporter. Scoop them up.
