Rainy Day Grey

saks_collection_beanie_Star_8
          Hat / Sunnies / Sweater / Jacket / Skirt / Bag / Boots (old)- Similar here Grey and black are my typical go-tos, especially on a gloomy day! Mixing the slouchy grey sweater, oversized jacket and combat boots with a more structured piece like a pleated pleather skirt was fun and a really easy way to make a lazy look chic(ish). Fun fact about this beanie- I produced it for Saks Fifth Avenue (at work), and I'm suuuuuuper proud to wear it :) . The grey was my favorite (obvs), but it comes in a black and hot pink version too!...

Velvet on Velvet

      Sunnies / Blouse (also similar here) / Blazer (also here) / Pants / Bag We found these amazing vintage pants when we were rummaging through our mom's closet and they fit so well with this (also vintage, and also velvet) Escada blazer (previously featured here). Velvet was made for this season and the metallic printing matched our new Feed bag perfectly. Part of the Blair Eadie X Feed Collaboration, each purchase provides 50 meals to New York families in need !! Only the bag is still available but similar versions of other pieces are linked above ☝️ .    ...

Spring Layers

        We've lived in Hell's Kitchen for about two years now and are always pleasantly surprised when we stumble on a new gem. Without a route in mind, we set out to photograph this look, and walked right by (and eventually in) a gorgeous community garden. It was incredibly peaceful and reminded us of our mom's garden back home. We can't wait for the weather to warm up for good, and for the buds to bloom so we can spend more time in this escape from the concrete jungle. Sunnies- Karen Walker / Bag- Rebecca Minkoff / Dress (sample sale)- Reformation (Similar here) / Vest (Old)- Loft (Love this one here) / Boots- Stuart Weitzman  ...

Plaid Coatigan

Plaid-Coatigan-2
        Whenever I hear the term "coatigan", I immediately feel the urge to shout "come again?", but since it is the most accurate description of this garment, I will refrain. If it wasn't clear from the name, the coatigan is a hybrid between a coat and a cardigan. All the soft and comfy sweater qualities of a cardi combined with the basic dimensions of the coat. While it is in no way a replacement for a coat, a lesson I learned the hard way, it is a very cute layering piece. They come in ALL shapes and colors (solid, and printed), but I think it works best if you find one in a great seasonal plaid! Coatigan - Old (Similar here)/ Sweater- J.Crew /...

Florals for Fall

fall-florals-1
        Spring and Summer seem like the appropriate seasons to wear florals, but that doesn't mean that you should suddenly boycot the print when the leaves change. Personally, we rarely ever wear florals so it's just as likely we'd wear them in spring as we would in winter. If you do subscribe to the notion that flower prints are seasonal, there are a few factors that help bend the rule. The type and color of flowers, as well as the ground shade of the print make this dress totally okay in our book! This ruffle dress is from Zara and is also available in a blouse version. If you are okay with the print for fall/winter, but not with wearing chiffon- another "rule",...

Velvet Blazers

Blazers are perfect for fall temperatures before jackets are truly necessary, and the amount of velvet this season is elevating the layering staple to a more interesting level. They are a favorite of mine to wear over a blouse to the office, or or over a slip top and jeans for going out. Stay tuned for a look featuring this trend, and scroll below for my picks!   Missguided   Mango   Free People Emporio Armani   Johnny Was   Kenzo...

Graphic Sweaters

                                                                                                                                    Graphic sweaters are the perfect way to update a basic outfit. This weekend the temperatures were in the single digits, and today the high was fifty degrees. When the weather becomes bipolar, layering is the only way to dress that makes sense. Since a chambrays and button downs can get boring, layer them with graphic sweaters to make your look more interesting. See below for some of my picks! 1. Autumn Cashmere  / 2.
