Red Haute Leopard

I’ve been told by some I don’t smile enough in my posts. I try! Today, stepping out of my comfort zone and pairing this fabulous leopard dress with red haute accessories makes me smile. (To be filed under something you didn’t know about me: I had a brief renegade phase as an NYC teenager and my “tag” was “sonrisa,” which means smile in Spanish. What is a tag? It’s your graffiti name. What can say? I was born and raised in Greenwich Village in the 60s and 70s — where every kid was a bit of a rebel.)

The Art of Black and White

IMG_3775There’s no other combination that’s cleaner, chicer, more graphic than black and white. However you put it together, it just works. You can dress it up, dress it down. You could probably wear black and white every day of the week and never wear it the same way twice. (Hmmm…possible future blog post?)

As for Art? Black and white makes a powerful statement there too. Yes, the messaging in this streetwise piece is pretty heavy, but I’m glad its creator found his voice.

First Fall Haul!

IMG_3752Even though it’s still t-shirt and sandal weather, I’m starting to think about Fall. And this is my first haul! Some bought in-store, some online. Not a ton of stuff, but some key pieces that I see myself wanting to wear again…and again. Where to start? Hard to say. I love each and every one of these AFFORDABLE finds.
