Brooklyn Tribal

Brooklyn Tribal{Maxi Dress: Old Navy; Sandals: Melissa; Belt: H&M}

I bought this Old Navy dress back in July specifically for my Boston trip and I love it.  I’ve been wearing it to death this summer (that along with those neon sandals I’m sure everyone is already sick of seeing!).  I’m pretty picky with what patterns I wear.  I absolutely hate florals.  So this tribal print was a great, fresh addition to my wardrobe.

What new patterns have you been sporting this summer?

Behind the Curve

Not a Dress 1{Blouse: Forever 21; Skirt: Thrifted; Belt: H&M; Flats: Steve Madden (thrifted)}

I am so far behind at work right now it’s not even funny. It’s been a super busy week on top of it, with commitments after work the entire week. My stress level is through the roof, considering I’m trying to tie up a bunch of loose ends on both the work and home fronts prior to leaving for vacation next week.

I had grand plans to put together a post today of what we did on Labor Day (We went sailing… in Brooklyn! Fo’ real!), but for now it’ll have to wait until tomorrow evening most likely because I’m too pressed for time on this lunch break and there’s like, a kazillion photos I took for that post that need to be processed. In the meantime you’ll have to settle for this outfit I wore last week to go out for after-work cocktails with Nikki.

Not a Dress 2

I’m taking some time off from my stress this evening to enjoy some Fashion Night Out events.  I’ll for sure be attending the event at MooShoes, so if you’re there be sure to say hi!

Last thursday I found myself with some time to kill so I ducked into Forever 21 for a quick sec to see what they had.  That store gives me a headache there’s so much stuff in it.  Amongst the racks and racks of stuff this op-artish top jumped out at me.  I’ve really been drawn to black and white patterns lately and even without trying it on I knew it would flatter me being its drawn it at the waist.  Considering that and looking at the $15 price tag, I figured I’d be silly not to get it.  Glad I did, I lurves it!

What I’m Wearing:

Tank Blouse: Forever 21
Jeggings: Hue (purchased at Bloomingdale’s)
Clogs: Qupid
Belt: Gift
Earrings: Junk (in Williamsburg)

Half-Year Resolution

10 Jul

I am completely and totally obsessed with these shoes!

I had searched high and low via the internets trying to find a pair of clogs (the hot, “it” shoe of summer, duh!) that I could actually wear.  It was near impossible to find a pair that was vegan, which is kinda funny when you think about it being clogs are considered to be somewhat hippy dippy.  I also wanted to find a pair that was a peep toe style that had a little bad ass to it as well.

Oh, and did I mention this pair was a mere $25?  Score!

I woke up this beautiful Saturday morning with no ambition to do much of anything.  Figuring there was no excuse not to get dressed considering some amazing person who I have yet to meet and personally thank invented jeggings.  Hello?! As comfy as sweats but looks presentable?  Sign me up.  Paired it with one of the hubby’s short sleeve button downs, a belt and my fab new clogs and I suddenly had motivation to get my arse out the door!  I went for a nice, leisurely walk where along the way I signed up for yoga classes, had my nails done and grabbed a few items to make dinner this evening.

On the walk I finally had an “aha” moment on what I wanted my “Half-Year Resolution” to be.  What’s a Half-Year Resolution?  It was my hubby’s idea.  Being we’re past the half-year part of 2010 he figured it would be a great idea for us to commit to new resolutions being we had already completed our resolutions we set for ourselves at the beginning of the year.

In January of 2010 I had resolved to become a vegan again.  I had been a vegetarian from age 12 through college, then a vegan for 2 years in college (which was when I had met my husband, he thought it was mad sexy though he himself is not a vegan).  After being tempted with some cheese quesadillas I was again a college vegetarian, and then somewhere along the line in my 20’s decided to give chicken another go.  I have no idea why I even did that now thinking back on it.  Hey at least I haven’t eaten beef or pork since I was 12.  So going into 2010, I decided to go back to being vegan.  I’m so happy I did!  I’ve been so much happier overall not to mention healthier.  All that’s material for another post though.

So for my half-year resolution I feel the best thing I could do is become a “real” vegan.  Granted, by diet I’m all vegan now but there are a few things I use on a daily basis leftover from my past life that are not.  For example, I have a ton of leather, designer purses and shoes.  I also wear Neutrogena makeup which I’m not sure is tested on animals or not.  So, for my half-year resolution I resolve to veganize all of my daily routine products. Clothing wise most everything I’ve purchased or thrifted since the beginning of the year has been vegan anyway so I’m good on that front.

Oh that reminds me another thing I’m resolving to do is to purchase most of my new clothing second-hand.  I love thrifting anyway plus it’s better for the environment so again win win.  For the whole of 2010 I’ve been trying to live a greener lifestyle, hence the veganism and stuff.

I also resolve to get back in shape.  That was the only January resolution I failed to meet.  I used to be a marathoner but lately running just doesn’t interest me.  So I’m going to try yoga (hence the class sign up today).  We’ll see how that goes.  I’m thinking it fits more in line with my new life outlook so it’s worth a shot.

Time to make dinner all this writing has made me hungry.
