One of the things about living in New York (for most of us) is that you-are-one with the elements. What do I mean? There is no car, garage, or covered walkway to spare you from the wind, rain or snow. So, what does that mean for someone like me who gets dressed from bottom - up? Cover those toes...and that, was the inspiration for this week's outfit.
It is still spring however (and I would like to show off the tan I'm rockin' fromlast weekend), so I kept the colors light in this Alice Moon dress found on a rack in Park Slope. Added a spot of cute with Calvin Klein polka-dot pantyhose, paired with one of my favorite brands Miz Mooz (oh so comfy heels, made for City girls).
No outfit, or day for that matter, is complete without a dose of Freedom - Omid (hope) leaf drop earrings, this pair in a shade of olive, also available in purple. Finished off the look with a tuxedo jacket ($3 find in Jackson Heights! Sorry BAM boutique is closed now) embellished with large silk flower from H&M, and an absolute favorite accessory of mine...
...a wood and leather purse that hangs from a beautiful twisted rope. Roaming an antique store
in Manitou Springs, Colorado with my Mom is where I
found this beauty...favorite part, it has plenty of room inside for phone, lipstick, notepad, keys and fold up slippers. I don't remember the name of the place, but there are only two in town!
