Happy Monday!!! Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was kind of restful and I have a stye on my eye so I kind of stayed in wearing glasses!! UGH!! Do you feel like Fall is on fast forward speed. How can Thanksgiving be coming up so soon? Yikes!! Im still trying to get my closet in order after the chaos of transferring my spring clothes to storage. Just to add a little more to the collection I had to do some shopping during Partner’s Card!! Hope you did too!! I’m constantly trying to explain to my husband why I just had to have a few new things. He could care less about clothes unless it’s camo!!! I want to share a few pieces I found at my favorite shopping spot – Tootsie’s!! They always seem to have a great selection and I like to have a mental list of some things I need – like velvet jeans. I have come to gravitate toward the fit of Citizens of Humanity and love the Rocket High Waist Jean. I bought these in burgundy (black currant) and navy (midnight) and they also come in deep green. They are higher waisted and have a lot of stretch but don’ t lose their shape. I bought these Manolo Blahnik pumps at a great resale shop in Westport this September. Of course, I can’t find the patent to share with you but there is a similar version in suede. I think it’s kind of fun to dress up a jean with your pumps. Now after this shoot I did have to run over to Deno’s and get some pads!! I find that I cannot stand on marble or hard floors for very long anymore in high heels. Bummer!! But I’m a sucker for a pretty shoe!!
Also on my list of basics to add were some fun tops. I found this one from Parker which I liked because of the dark floral and it is kind of a different style for me because of the choker collar. It is also a bit floaty but I kind of like the subtle feminine ruffle. The sleeves are pretty and I think I will enjoy wearing it out to dinner or lunch. It’s not too fancy but makes a statement without needing to add much of anything. I do like the the bell sleeve trend but I thought when buying this blouse that it would be easier to wear a jacket with it. The sleeve has a cuff and a little bloussant effect to the sleeve.(OMG I was trying to check the spelling of bloussant and I kept getting breast implants and gastric sleeves!!!) I actually found these tassel earrings when I went to NY Fashion Week on Broadway in one of those shops that use to be in China Town. I think is is fun to add some trendy earrings to your look for the holidays. You can find lots of choices that are not too pricey. Fashion is in the details and fashion is meant to be fun!!!
