It’s a beautiful day in Manhattan and today I went out and did what most New Yorkers do on Sunday afternoon. I went to brunch. While I know this is a topic I’ve already discussed in some detail I have a few new things to add.

Going to brunch is an occasion (life is an occasion isn’t it?) and that means it’s time to get dressed up. Pick comfortable clothing that you won’t feel embarrassed to be seen in. I tend to run into someone the minute I’m not put together. 

Another way you can tie a look together is tossing on a hat. It’s one of my favourite ways to get dressed up fast. 

*Brunch tip- when you finally pick a place to go to brunch, pay attention to what everyone else is ordering. If you see a common plate that most people are getting, order it too! It’s popular for a reason.

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!

My room is finally coming together. Feeling very ladylike and polished.
