Month: September 2012

just sayin’: saturday stacking



i didn’t join the michael kors watch bandwagon, but the bracelets i can get behind (here). i may need to add one or two of this to my stacking collection.


i wore: hot dots

thank you madewell for making a shirt so fuchsia that i even questioned wearing it…




origins of the outfit: shirt – madewell; pants – loft; shoes – bcbg generation; arm stack – j crew & alex & ani (bangles), leather – juicy.



i wore: lions…no tigers or bears

peplum can be loose and silky too.














origins of the outfit: top – zara; jacket – kiz, chicago boutique; pants – gap (but in black); shoes – j crew; arm stack – vintage, ferragamo, alex and ani; necklace – eliza page





i shopped: j crew outlet

i was at the beach with my girls, so we got some outlet shopping in. hello new fall wardrobe from j crew…i’m cut-off after this.

the full spread

too much?


ok, i think the pattern on pattern doesn’t work for me so well…

if you want the goods: j crew factory site – opening soon!


i wore: arm stack

it takes accessories to make clothes an outfit. clearly, i use bracelets. origins of the stack: j crew, alex and ani, hermes, vintage, j crew, vintage, and j crew; shirt – j crew; jeans – william rast; belt – loft

i wore: collar hardware

quick post: sometimes it just takes some heavy hardware to dress up the neutrals.   origins of the outfit: shirt – bcbg; necklace – forever 21


i wore: mixing orange & animals

loved my madewell boyfriend jeans with my pony shirt (as seen in prague) so much that i remixed it for early fall.






origins of the outfit: jacket – forever 21 (doesn’t look it at all; it’s old); boyfriend jeans – madewell; shirt – madewell; shoes – dsw; brooch – vintage, randolph street market; arm stack: bangles – j crew, leopard – j crew, wire bangles – alex and ani


i shopped: loft

ok, i’m really an equal opportunity shopper – meaning, i can find something just about anywhere. i very rarely go to ann taylor or loft; however i’ve noticed a few cute things from them recently and stopped by loft yesterday (while my man was at the dentist – i can’t be left alone for very long clearly….).

dots, color, leopard? love love love.


not only do i love my purchases, i also think only a super chic soccer mom would wear them (happy to share a similar outfit with a chic soccer mom, just not a sweatpants soccer mom). and to further drive my love – everything was on sale; my entire haul was under $100 – what the *&$# is right!

origins of the score – loft: pants; skirt; belt; necklace.


just sayin’: sunday stacking

with a scarf; need to give this a go.


i wore: chambray and lace

popular look right now.




little arm stack 


maybe too popular in fact?


i wore this outfit during the day, and then went to meet friends at hotel lincoln/j parker for drinks – in walks my gal pal in the exact same look. we died – it was hilarious!  so ladies the lesson here is: check with your friends before you wear your denim + lace looks.

origins of the outfit: shirt – jcrew; skirt – f21 (love 21 line, recent); boots – nordstrom rack; arm stack – jcrew, j crew, hermes.
