image OOTD: NYFW Day 1

For the first day of New York Fashion Week, all black just felt like the way to go.  I got my huge Carmakoma order in mail the day before (they have lightning fast shipping, especially considering that it’s coming from Denmark), and these faux leather pants were just calling my name.   More…

image NYFW Runway Report: Desigual

As a longtime lover of bold prints, Spanish label Desigual has always intrigued me. Known for their over the top use of color and pattern, some of their designs were even too much for me, crossing the fine line from interesting to busy.  For their FW15 collection, however, they walked that line with aplomb.

image Shoe Crush: Aquazzura Lace Up Flats

It is no secret that I love flats: Living in Manhattan and walking everywhere is just not conducive to wearing heels on a daily basis for me.  Needless to say, I am thrilled that the current shoe-of-the-moment is not one that will land me on my ass if I encounter cobblestone. Aquazurra, the label of Columbian shoe designer Edgardo Osorio, is known for their night-out-ready stilettos, but has managed to bring that sexiness to a flat with the “Christy” lace up style. More…

image OOTD: Ditching the Black Coat

New York in the winter is hard on a fashion lover’s soul – how can you fully express yourself when your whole look is covered up by a coat? When you are just another black coat in a sea of black coats, the dreary weather seems even drearier. In an effort to mix things up, I ended up retiring my cute but sensible Olivia Pope black wool for a variety of colors and patterns – the closest thing I have to black now is my nubby navy coat from Elvi.  I snagged an on-trend pastel coat from Boohoo for more color, and wear my statement plaid Corey coat whenever I can bear the thought of only one layer on my arms.  But this season’s favorite is no doubt this grey leopard goodness from BB Dakota via Gwynnie Bee.   More…

image OOTD: Winter Color

I don’t know if its the purple hair, my rekindled love for minimalism, or the gloomy weather, but this winter has heralded a return of high levels of black in my wardrobe.  I’ve found myself drawn to the classic New York shade time and again.  Bold prints still catch my eye, though, so when this drape overlay dress from Mynt 1792 arrived in my Gwynnie Bee box, I decided it was time for some color.   More…

image Curvily Deal Alert: ASOS Sale Picks Under $20!

ASOS is one of my favorite online stores – with free shipping and returns, and a trend-driven selection, it warrants regular visits and lots of online window shopping.  Their regular prices are quite reasonable, which means it is really hard for me to be reasonable about shopping when they are up to 75% off.  Which is happening RIGHT NOW!

image OOTD: Cozy and Oversized

This sweater is an amalgamation of elements I used to admire from afar, but didn’t wear myself because I was worried about them being flattering: Oversized, chunky knit, cowl turtleneck. A few years ago, any one of these elements would have given me pause, but here I am happily wearing all three in one ridiculously cozy sweater (even sans sleeves!). Consciously letting go of old fashion rules is the best. More…
