Fall has officially defended on us here in New York, New York. And while the anticipation of fall was rather large, it came rather shockingly fast. On the first day of autumn…a single leaf fell on the pavement in front of me, and immediately afterwards, I shivered.

It can be a little tricky dressing for fall here because the mornings and early afternoons can be freezing. Then, the late afternoons are sweltering. What are you to do? I like to keep a t-shirt or blouse on with short sleeves, or totally made of cotton, with a jacket that’s easy to remove. 

There’s a beautiful little story behind this clutch. I first saw this in an advertistment in Cosmopolitan. I knew that one day in the future I would move to Manhattan. I remember telling my mother about it and showing her the photo. We looked high and low for the clutch and then one day… as I was walking out of a store in the mall. I saw it. I pressed my face a little too eagerly against the glass in Kate Spade and about five seconds later it was in my hands. A gift from my mom, I treasure this piece particularly. It was one I acquired from my hometown and I realized how monumental it was that I actually moved and could wear this piece. I get asked about it very often.

What do you think of my Easter nails? I love the little bunny with lashes!

I love getting my nails done. I feel like it’s one of those simple pleasures in life that a woman should indulge in. Nothing is more cheerful to me than a beautiful mani. And even if it’s not a special occasion, go get a mani! I know it’s cheaper to do at home but whenever I do my nails it looks like a Jackson Pollock painting. Lol

I hope you’re having a great day!

A closer look at this weeks manicure! I love it because it reminds me of the flames they would paint on hot rods. 😉

What do your nails look like?

I hit Goodwill today!
And I goofed around just a little bit. I was headed to an antique mall and saw a goodwill and proceeded to spend three hours there. Oops!!

Today I wore my favourite red hats, giant men’s cashmere, leggings and Aldo rain boots from circa 2008! Oh I wore my “go topless” Wildfox Couture sweater. Love it.

I found this beautiful vintage blazer with velvet and beading! It’s a little big at a size 8 but it was so beautiful I had to have it. I know I can take it to a tailor and have it adjusted in all the right spots.

One thing I’ve learned about thrifting is if you love something and you’re not sure if you want to buy it, grab it. Because if someone else grabs it, and leaves with it, you might regret it! Many a one-of-a-kind items I wasn’t sure of left with someone else!

Results from today’s hair-escapades! I got bangs! What do you think? Thanks to Aaron and Aubrey at Paul Mitchell!!
