Street art has been the theme of this week so far for me, and I can't help but share the work of Brazilian duo Os Gêmeos (Portuguese for 'The Twins') alongside the recent collections of Marc Jacobs and Prada, whose prints and accessories I feel would be right at home in their aesthetic.  Dreaming of a James Jean x Prada or Murakami x Vuitton level collabo here...

Look of the Day: Anniversary Dinner

Wearing: 50's vintage dress, Proenza Schouler belt, Céline bag, Miu Miu shoes

Tomorrow is my boyfriend's and my six year anniversary, so we went out to dinner tonight to celebrate (the restaurant where we wanted to eat is closed on Sundays and Mondays).  I wore a 1950's shirt dress that I bought on Etsy, cinched with my trusty Proenza belt that goes with everything.  And I finally got to wear my Miu Miu sandals from last summer that I wasn't able to wear then because I sprained my ankle.  They go with almost nothing, but they're really comfortable and are one of my favorite pairs.  I'm also toting my new baby - the Céline Trapeze bag - for the first time, as well as wearing my new Repossi rhodium phalanx ring, which you can't actually see in any of these photos.  Right now, I'm just enjoying being in my PJ's, as I had a massive dinner of steak tartare, followed by more steak topped with crab meat, and then (eek!) ricotta cheesecake.  Tomorrow might be a good day to finally figure out how to work the treadmill in our gym ;)

I'm News!!

I recently was interviewed by one of my all-time favorite online destinations, The Fashion Spot, where I am currently featured as the third subject in the new Member Spotlight series, which highlights members who contribute regularly to their popular forums.  I could not be more in shock or more honored that they found me interesting enough to interview, but they published a whopping two pages of my thoughts.  Thanks so much to Pilar, who interviewed me and wrote the amazing full article, which you can read here.

The first pieces from pre-fall collections are now hitting the sales floors at some of my favorite shopping destinations, and I could not be more excited for this season of uniqueness and excess.  I am especially enamored of delicate earrings paired with over-the-top pieces, Narcisco Rodriguez's newly re-relaunched shoe collection, and the perfect shade of pale blue (see The Row clutch above).  I am eyeing a pair of simple sandals at ASOS in a similar hue.  Above are a few looks highlighting some of my dream selections ;)
