I Speak Moschino

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?  I think Moschino designer, Jeremy Scott, may have rented a place there last summer.  What wallpaper candy!

Is it practical?  Probably not.  But I am loving this Sponge Bob moment and the lightheartedness of FW14 collection. Kudos.

Black and White

I’ve been stressed. I’ve been exhausted. I’ve been…. Not myself. Sometimes real life in NYC is questionable and I often go through months at a time where I wonder what all this is for. Then I have some time to reflect, some time with family, some… time. That’s when I realize all the mumbo jumbo I worry about doesn’t really matter in the end. If I’m not the best, it doesn’t make a difference.  I’d much rather achieve everything I want far under the radar.

Lengthy Alterations

The unseasonably warm weekend was a refreshing break from the coldest winter I can remember.  With that being said, I didn’t think I’d be breaking out my favorite leather jacket any time soon.  This Zara jacket was an impulse purchase last Thanksgiving, and was most definitely the right move.  Originally, the jacket sleeves were short on me, but everything else about the jacket was perfect.  In order to solve this common problem of mine, I decided to purchase ribbed wool not only to lengthen the sleeves, but also give it a warmer, cozy feeling of a cardigan.   It was the first time I did anything like this and was well worth it.  The sleeves came out perfect and definitely makes the jacket much more comfortable and warm.

Spring Forward

Even though it’s only February, I know the next few months are going to fly by and Spring is just around the corner.  Below is an outfit that’s perfect for those 50 degree transitional Spring days.  I’m really loving the Fendi booties in nude with gold chunky heel…
