Out of Context
Thursday, February 25 Worn to work, hang out time at the boy’s apartment, and to work a recent alum mixer that a friend organized. Add a wicked winter storm into the mix, and I had myself quite a day! The Outfit… Teal Floral Shift Dress - vintage, via Fidget Finds (Newport, RI) Bright Purple Tights - Betsey Johnson via Loehmann’s Bright Purple Scarf - gift Beige Cardi - J...
Wednesday, February 24 Worn to work and a Pinkberry date with my boyfriend! (If you want a laugh, go to the Pinkberry site and just listen to their weird rap jingle, which is now sadly outdated since they no longer serve green tea flavor. No worries, I’m an original flavor girl.) (Sorry these shots turned out blurry! I tried, I really did!) The Outfit… Gray 3/4 Sleeved...
If It Ain't Broke...
It rained ALL DAY today- that nasty kind of storm where it’s so windy you get pushed to the side. I didn’t get to take a photo before I got soaked to the bone on my way home from work, so I made a collage of my outfit instead. I picked items for my collage that resembled the ones I wore. For details on the items pictured above, click here. The Outfit… Blue Striped Button...
The Ivy League look to be featured at the Fashion... →
(via putthison) Granted, this exhibit is quite a long way away and will be focusing on menswear, but I am pretty excited that MFIT will be featuring the preppy look!
The Official Preppy Handbook
Sunday, February 21 Worn to a HEAVENLY brunch at DBGB. This place ranks highly on my list of favorite brunch places in NYC and I am almost a professional bruncher- it’s a bit pricey but for French cooking and a menu boasting off-the-beaten-path delicacies like blood sausage (I did not venture to taste that one) it is most certainly a foodie paradise. The Outfit… Magenta Cardi - J...
The High Line and Other Adventures
Saturday, February 20 My friend Maggie and I met up for burritos in the West Village and just kind of wandered for the rest of the day. I am 95% sure that we walked past Taylor Jacobson on 13th in Meatpacking…and according to her twitter she’s in NY. It is fairly hard to tell, though, since most people who hang out in that area dress the same exact uber-trendy-trying-too-hard way. ...
NOLA Meets NYC
Thursday, February 18 Worn to work and then drinks with blogger friends Meredith and Lauren! Lauren was visiting from New Orleans, and I was so happy to meet her, especially alongside my very first blog to real life friend. We took advantage of 2-for-1 happy hour martinis and Lauren and I continued the night at a party in Union Square. I had so so much fun - thanks, Lauren, for making time...
Evolving Influence: The Bloggers
Isn’t this the most adorbs picture of BryanBoy and Tavi? The best part of the IFB Conference on Monday was most definitely the bloggers. I feel so lucky to have been welcomed into this community and Monday felt like a big reunion, even though I hadn’t met many of the attendees in person until that day. Here’s some of the lovely bloggers I met (and the ones that got...
Evolving Influence: The Panels
The IFB Conference was such a motivating, thought-provoking, and encouraging day. I have a LOT to say about the three panels I attended, so let’s start at the beginning, shall we? Panel One (the second of the day, oops): The Business of Blogging. This one was all about partnerships between blogs and corporations, so naturally, it featured speakers from the blogging community, the...
Today, because of the amazing woman that is Sammy D, I bring you my very first video post! In between panels at the IFB conference, Sammy interviewed Becky and I about how we incorporate vintage into our own wardrobes. What do you love about wearing vintage?
The Vintage Jacket That Wins Me New Friends
sammydvintage: This is the jacket that wins me friends… OH. But the jacket love doesn’t stop there. See pic below! I reworked even more magic into this friend-making-piece when paired with fake-leather leggings [I guess that makes ‘em “pleather”] and the same all-in-one-top leotard. My girl Mariel from Preppy with a Twist is probably laughing at just how different we both look right...
I Heart IFB
Monday, February 15 Worn to the IFB Evolving Influence blogging conference! I had such a blast at September’s Dress Up Soiree that I was really looking forward to this event, and it didn’t disappoint. I’ll be doing a full recap of the panel discussions and sharing photos of the amazing bloggers I met soon! Special thanks to Becky for being my buddy all day and for snapping...
Friday, February 12 Worn to work and dinner with my boyfriend at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. I’m not huge on Valentine’s Day, so I was doubly surprised when he sent a gorgeous bouquet of tulips to my office! I’m so lucky to have him. I learned this new pretzel-y way of tying scarves from Academichic. The Outfit… Gray V-Neck Tee - American Apparel ...

Tuesday, February 9 Worn to work and to run to the grocery store. All I wanted was to make Kate’s vegetarian white bean soup, but everyone else was preparing for the blizzard that’s supposed to hit NY. According to the people around me in line, one should stock up on cupcakes, sodas in various flavors, family sized boxes of chicken nuggets, and cigarettes. Hmmm. Anyway, the soup...

Saturday, January 31 Worn to volunteer at the neighborhood elementary school as part of New York Cares. If you’re in the NYC area, I highly recommend joining up with them— there are a variety of projects available, from feeding the homeless to tutoring highschoolers for the SAT to cleaning up parks, and you only sign up when you want to go so it’s super flexible. I am now...
