jammy time

i saw regina george wearing army pants and flip flops, so i bought army pants and flip flops….

last week at the st. lucia concert at city winery, i saw a chic pea wearing a dark printed pajama top. she easily stood out against a sea of black and had paired it simply half tucked with a ponytail, skinny jeans and some western style booties…it was all just working. while her bag and booties were very trendy, the black made them feel accessible enough that even i could pull the look off. so of course i did what one does in the age of mobile mania– i ordered most of her outfit promptly in the cab ride home. below are the three winners from my quest for a pajama top, plus other less expensive options by express, zara and nordstrom rack.

get her whole look below…

1– silk button-up top, j.crew

2– juliet silk pajama top, cinq a sept

3– liana silk pajama blouse, l’agence

4– “ori” satin lipstick, tom ford

5– huxley booties, topshop

6– kendall distressed skinny jeans, grlfrnd

7– mini johnny bag, danse lente

8– compass ring, retrouvai

9– bee pinky ring, mejuri

oui oui ouiiii

move over chanel granny pumps, there’s a new it girl in town…

meet the dior slingback, 2017’s latest street style darling. true life, i had to physically pull myself away from these at Selfridge’s a few weeks ago. it’s no wonder this shoe is taking over– a twist on the ever classic pointy toe black flat– made insta ready with graphic j’adore printed elastic. it was a tragic separation, i loved these shoes and i’m pretty sure they loved me back (and wanted to come live their best life in new york). they look good with everything from skinny jeans for a gals lunch date, to a pleated skirt and button down for the office, and i can even see some uber chic girl style them with a frilly tulle maxi dress, the perfect ballerina chic kind of look. in my dream scenario (where there’s a pair in my closet), I’d go for a date night look, paired with….

1- dior j’adore flats

2- cashmere trench coat

3- structural bucket bag

4- lip pigment

5- dark skinny jeans

6- lace top (on sale!)

7- pearl choker

8- chance perfume

gaga for gucci

In the challenging world of retail, Gucci has made one of the biggest design comebacks in recent years. Led by new design talent, Alessandro Michele, the brand has been revitalized by taking “out there” risks (fur slides anyone?), retro silhouettes and not shying away from color and print. The result is so fresh, unusual and unequivocally Italian, its not hard to understand why the brand has been popping up on fashionistas and style mavens errrrrywhere.
