What to wear when the weather just isn’t cooperating…

December 20, 2009

There was a huge snow storm in NYC this weekend and in any other situation, I would have put my most comfy sweatpants and sweatshirt on, cozied up on the couch with hot chocolate and watched endless amounts of Dexter and Mad Men, but Saturday was not like every other day…one of my oldest and closest friends, Michelle, got engaged (congrats, Mich!) and it was time to celebrate!! Michelle chose the elegant Hudson Hotel (Library Bar) for this occasion. I had a dress, tights and booties ready to wear, but when I looked out the window, I realized that if I wanted to come home with all my bones in tact, this outfit wasn’t going to cut it…I ended up going with a silky top and cardigan, black skinnies and grey flat boots. I gracefully slid on ice the second I walked outside (happy I wasn’t in heels)…yikes!

What would you have worn for this special occasion in such treacherous weather?

What I wore… Would you have gone casual also?

Hurry! Buy These Boots NOW!

October 2, 2009

Get to Urban Outfitters or click the image below and get these before they’re gone! They were originally $78, but are now on sale for $59.99! What a great deal. I’m digging the fold over boot look and obviously that exposed zipper.
Run, don’t walk, because they are sure to sell out fast!

Christian Louboutin Very Prive Peep-toe Pumps $995

Christian Louboutin Nitoinmoi Bandage Ankle Boots $1,195

These shoes are AMAZING, and although I could never afford them right now, I wonder if I would be willing to spend over $1,000 on shoes in the future, when I’m making more money. Seems like a lot of cash for an accessory that you pound the streets in. Girl can dream, right?

What do you guys think? Investment piece or way too much money to ever even consider?

Shop now, wear later! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here!

July 23, 2009

I really look forward to this one sale every year. It’s difficult for me to do, but I try to think about what I will need once the weather gets a little colder and try to buy it now, on sale, versus in 3 months from now at full price. The greatest thing about Nordstrom is that if I buy something now and then don’t end up wearing it in 3 months from now I can still return it then. They have the best return policy ever (save your receipt to be on the safe side)! So, I say buy now and reevaluate later. What I suggest buying are boots, handbags, coats and sweaters. Let me know what you think about the selection! Would you buy months in advance to save some cash or can you not even think about your winter wardrobe yet?

Tip 1: Prices will go back up to full price on August 3rd.
Tip 2: If you spend $200 online you get free shipping.

Here are some of my picks! Yes, I know that they are over $100, but these are your winter essentials here, at extremely slashed prices!!

Frye ‘Maxine’ Short Boot – $199.90 from $297.95

It doesn’t get any more rugged than this!

Ohhh there is nothing better than throwing on your favorite boots once the temperature cools down. No, I’m not hoping for the end of summer by any means, I actually HATE the cold, but I LOVE the look of a brand new pair of leather boots. This new vintage line from Nine West has really caught my attention. I allow myself one expensive pair of boots each year and I think I’ve found them already. This pair right here are so gorgeous; I think I’m blushing. I love the dark natural leather look and the side grommet details. I’m going to wait it out for a little, maybe until they go on sale or perhaps a friendly coupon comes my way, but boyyy have I got my eye on these. You can pre-order from this collection now or wait to spend the big bucks until absolutely necessary like I will. How cool is this collection? What’s first on your to-buy list?
