Wish list that is… I decided to get my ultimate wish list out there a bit early this year (my birthday is next month, May 28th) so that the people that love me most (you know who you are) can save up to get me something from my rather pricey birthday list (sorry I’m not sorry). Designer fedora? Designer overalls? Designer safety pin! Isn’t that what every girl wants? Ok, so now I sound like a brat, but this birthday is a big one and I definitely DO NOT expect any of the above – it simply makes for a great blog post. Those Prada sunnies, I already have in black and gold (but they’re my absolute favorite and would love another color way). The Saint Laurent Fedora I literally die over, I envy you Anna Dello Russo. I also recently fell in love with all things Laurence Dacade, especially those booties. Oh and also the Saint Laurent Tote – because it’s really classic but totally new. Shop the rest below.

In the midst of the hustle and bustle in this big city lies a quant little lot called the Hester Street Fair. This weekend I did what I love most, and haven’t done in far too long. When the girls from Lulu Frost and Bib+Tuck asked me to help them go treasure hunting, I couldn’t say no. Not to toot my own horn, but I somehow always (and I mean every single time without fail) find amazing vintage pieces wherever I go. It doesn’t hurt when people like Summer Mizera and Coast to Coast are vendors too… You’ll be able to shop some of my finds on Bib+Tuck soon.
I’m always ecstatic when I buy myself something nice, it’s a reward for hard work and all the time I spend on my blog and career. But this one… oh boy, these wedges were on my mind for way too long before I finally slipped my feet into them yesterday! If they came in black,of course I would have gotten those, but I’m so happy to find my modern dorothy slippers that are just so so good. They’re pretty special, so I wanted to pair them with a really simple outfit. Dorothy can go home now…
Are you even surprised to see another outfit post with overalls? I’m not. Especially with the weather (sort of being nice) I’m still finding overalls the easiest and best piece to throw on, on any given day. This pair by Big Star, are actually one of my favorites because of their lightweight denim and great fit. They’re almost identical to the Topshop ones I have, but the material is thinner. That’s the 411 on overalls yet again, yawn.
In other news, I’m sort of already missing my ombre hair – but Arrojo Studio does such an amazing job, I’m confident that I’ll be able to get my old color back when I’m ready!
The online reveal (besides my Instagram) of my new hair! In this lighting I have to say it looks pretty red, but these pics were taken the day I went back to the salon and got all the redness taken out (so now it’s all chocolate brown). Besides the fact that I feel like super woman in a hidden identity… I suddenly feel older, sexier, and a bit more sophisticated. Act it? Prob not, but ask my boyfriend. I also now have the most perfect new leather jacket, that is sold out almost everywhere, and I recently found the perfect plain white tee (comes in more colors too) from Loft. My mom always encouraged me to stop by places like Loft to check out their basics, but I never knew how good they actually were til Who What Wear asked me to participate in styling a tee to promote this awesome #styledtoatee Instagram contest – rules here. You can shop more from the brand here too.
