March 2011

As a continuation to an earlier Style Diary post about 1 dress worn 3 ways, I’m adding yet another way to style the same old Calvin Klein neutral grey, cowl neck dress.  I love challenging myself to never wear an outfit the same way more than once.

Here, I’m wearing the Calvin Klein dress that I bought at TJ Maxx for about $39.  I’ve paired it with a fun pair of polka dot tights, $15 leopard flats from Forever 21 and a blue silk cardigan that my friend bought me.   I found the necklace for about $25.  I can’t tell you how many compliments I received over the outfit, the tights and the necklace.  Little did they know how little I spent on the entire outfit.   Of the 4 Calvin Klein dress outfits, which one is your favorite?


Ever since I started this blog, I’ve enjoyed the perks of getting fashion deliveries.  Today a charitable group called Fashion Delivers actually delivered this wonderful care package filled with Echo scarves, gloves, and an Alice & Olivia vip discount card.  Thank you Fashion Delivers! I’m giving away the Tiffany blue quilted gloves to my friend Tiffany and giving away the paisley and striped scarves to a lucky reader.  I’m adding it to my next goody bag giveaway.  The teal blue crinkle scarf is something I plan to wear tomorrow.  I found it perfectly matched the H&M blazer already in my closet.

Here is the picture of the scarf on.I’m wearing this outfit tomorrow ‘cuz it matches the teal/black & white/ pink dessert table that I’m creating for Lafayette 148.  I’ll show you pics next week!

Is anyone else loving this bright teal for spring?

Every year there seems to be a new focus on denim.  This past fall/winter’s season was all about the cargo skinny jean.  Though I initially resisted, I finally gave into the casual cool look when I found this lovely charcoal zip-ankle cargo jean at Off 5th.  It was originally $100 but I bought the “SL8” pair for about $30.  Gotta love the deal!

Here are a couple looks where I pair the jeans with grey plaid flats and a charcoal fedora- a perfect weekend combination.

The  “Just Sweet” flats and the Fedora were each only $30 or less.

The striped long sleeved shirt and flowery cardigan were cheap and cheerful finds from Forever 21.  Both were under $25 each.

I see this as the perfect weekend outfit to go sightseeing in or to attend a casual weekend brunch.  Can you believe I found this sweet Chanel purse at a consignment store?

The next outfit pairs fancy with casual.  I love mixing it up and often seek to wear contradictions.  Here I pair a fancier sequin black stretch sweater with my casual new cargos and again wear it with the same hat and shoes for a darker edgier look than the previously seen feminine floral pairing.

As you can see, I’m a huge fan of Chanel.  I LOVE their purses!  Which outfit would you wear?

I wore the outfit out with my faux fur coat from Express minus the hat today.

Thank God for flats!  A New Yorker can only walk so far in heels…

Fashion has never been so sweet.  I’ve spent months salivating over dessert tables and have been inspired to create my own.  I’ll post some of my first creations next week and for now simply showcase some logo-inspired fashionable desserts.  Tell me what you think of these!
