Black & Orange – But NOT in a Halloween-y Way

Shirt – Equipment // Sweater – Something Else // Skirt – J.Crew (similar texture) // Tights – J.Crew (similar) // Black Boots – A.P.C. (on sale, fewer sizes) // Rain Boots – Jeffrey Campbell // Necklace – Vintage // Rings – Saint Laurent, Maison Martin Margiela

This is what happens when you get dressed after 4pm, ie, once it’s dark outside. It was also raining and I reeaallly wanted to wear my pretty A.P.C. boots, but I haven’t weather protected them yet. Still. So I wore my fun rain boots instead. But as you can see, I’m not wearing any shoes in the photo. Why? Taking photos against a white wall was a challenge… I ended up having to put a stepladder in the shot so the camera could have something to focus on. Once I set the self timer I had to run into the shot to remove the stepladder, securely prop it against something else, then run back into the frame and stand still for the remaining 2 seconds. I started doing all of that in the boots, then realized it was probably very unpleasant for my downstairs neighbors!

I wore this about 3 weeks ago to see Alvin Ailey with a dear friend. Alvin Ailey is a yearly tradition of mine and I love sharing it with my friends. A draft of this blog post sat on my computer for a while, in part due to 10 days in San Francisco. But also because I updated WordPress and they apparently changed the photo editor to become supremely minuscule and hard to find, and it was incredibly frustrating, and it took me forever to figure out how to do what I needed to do. But I figured it out finally, yay!

I’m still working on my apartment, so the next time I get dressed after dark and have to take photos inside… hopefully this blank white wall will look a lot different!

Happy 2015!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I know it’s a bit late, but personally I don’t think wishing people a whole year’s worth of good things should be limited to just a couple of days at the beginning of the year!

Anyway, I feel really good about 2015. My friend Rob summed it up pretty well. I asked him about the fireworks he saw in Prospect Park and he said they were “nothing compared to what’s to come in 2015.” For some reason that really resonates with me. So yeah, I’m feeling good about what’s to come. Here’s to a great 2015!

Wearing Legwarmers Unironically

15865601410_ef5faf7427_o 16027113216_65a095136b_o 15867128367_91c115dca9_o 16027106166_be62ae74d1_o

Coat – Zoran (vintage) // Jacket – Clover Canyon (last seen here) // T-shirt – UNIQLO // Jeans – James Jeans // Bag – Rebecca Minkoff // Shoes – Diane von Furstenberg // Leg warmers – gift from a friend (more here, here and here)

People tend to make fun of me for wearing leg warmers, but they’re actually quite practical! They’re excellent for keeping your ankles and shins warm, and they’re just a fun accessory to wear. I wore this outfit to brunch with a couple of friends on Sunday. I was in the home stretch of finals and feeling really crappy, so I took a little extra time with hair and makeup and put on some bright colors.
