Please Me…

That’s the color of my lipstick .

A blazer over a bodysuit under what I like to call ‘real boy’ shorts and open toe booties is my definition of office style with a side street.  I am always trying to find a balance between the two.

How do you think I pulled off this look? Would you wear bermuda shorts to the office?

Match Made In Heaven

It’s been too cold (freezing actually) in New York, and my photographer has been working on some other projects lately and will be for another week or so, but I’m finally back! The best way to improvise with such tragic conditions is to share my daily outfits from inside my apartment, which is still under renovations. I have very little furniture to move around and can easily use any wall for a back drop! (And he takes good photos too).
For a late night friend’s birthday dinner, I wore a very cool piece from H&M. Really, I fell in love with the thumb hole at the end of the sleeves and so I had to have it. It sort of looked like boxing gloves and made me feel real tough wearing it. Surprisingly this is something I can see myself wearing over and over again. My style is written all over it: black, has a turtleneck and fits like a glove.
How are you all on the East Coast surviving the cold?
What has been your go to clothing item this Winter?
