OOTD: Ça va, Degas?

Affilier Acheté

One of my favorite things to do is to take something dressy and wear it for everyday by dressing it down with something casual. I finally got my long-coveted Alexandra Grecco tulle skirt, and the sun finally came out in New York, and so I spun together my favorite kind of OOTD: a magical one.

Wishlist Wednesday #28 – Vintage Scarf

My recent obsession is a vintage scarf. Okay, to be honest, I have been wanting one for a while now, but it’s suddenly resurfaced in urgency. The summer is coming up, and I’m trying to figure out a way to keep my hair neat when the wind blows it around. Because of the curls, I can’t pull it back or put it up without ruining it.

Then I started thinking about all the old Hollywood stars who wore scarves and how glamorous it looked.

OOTD: Dot Dot Dash

OOTD I can’t post this OOTD without getting teary. This was back when I had my lovely photographer/friend/colleague Danielle to take photos for me. And this was back when my hair was actually long. The one thing I don’t miss is the surroundings. They may make for good fashion photos, but try working somewhere where this is all that’s around you!

MY HAIR!! *SOB*

It was certainly too cold to leave the office without a coat, though it was just slightly warmer—enough for me not to have to bundle into my big, black puffer coat and break out my beautiful purple coat.

OOTD A tad blurry, but I had to point out that my friend Dagmar and I found out that we both had the same sunglasses. 🙂

OOTD I know it’s a tad matchy matchy, but I actually love this outfit. Black, white, and red is one of my favorite color combinations.

OOTD I always feel a bit fabulous wearing it.

OOTD But I can still laugh at myself. 🙂

DSC_2300 This was my first attempt with the Bobbi Brown liner, incidentally. The lipstick is Melt’s Belladonna 2.

OOTD Yes, I AM a bit ridiculous. 🙂

OOTD When you work in a very industrial area and come upon a building decked out like a yellow taxi cab, what else are you supposed to do but take photos?!

Shani Asks You Sundays – Big Accomplishment

Well, today is my blog’s 6-month anniversary!! *pets it* When I started writing it, I wrote about how I was a failed blogger and I did wonder to myself how long I’d be able to keep this one going.

And despite starting a full-time job in the the middle of all this, I still have managed to keep up posting consistently. It hasn’t been easy, and a lot of the time, it feels like a second job. (I come home from a long day of work…to do more work…) But I’ve done it. And I’m proud and feel accomplished.

So, today’s question:

What is something that you’ve accomplished recently that you’re really proud of?

It doesn’t have to be blog-related. It can be anything. Let’s toot our own horns a bit. 🙂

OOTD: Highland Fling

Affilier DSC_2171 I know that I haven’t really featured any lifestyle/life in NY posts lately. I guess that’s what happens when you get a job. With terrible hours. That’s not in Manhattan. I really haven’t done anything or gone anywhere. I didn’t even think that the area was a good place to photography my outfits, till someone told me that grungy industrial provides a good backdrop for “fashion.”

You tell me!
