Red Carpet Ready // 3

With all my talk of Award Season, I figure it’s high time I share what I would be wearing if I hit the Red Carpet for and Award Show!
Here are my style picks for the Golden Globes {a little late… but hey.} I wanted to go classic – with a twist. SO – I picked simple accessories, I envision a simple up-do {maybe similar to Amy Pohler’s} and a slight smokey eye.
I picked this Katie Ermilio dress because I love the shape of the skirt, and the short sleeves. I also like the idea of wearing a new designer on the Red Carpet {and HEY it just happen to be featured on R29 today!}!

What do you think Chicasaurs? A Hit or a Miss??

Plaid to Meet You!

I’m slightly obsessed with Dries Van Noten Spring 13 collection. Um – plaid on plaid? Yes please.

A few of my fave icons of chic also love the look…

Rompers, Jumpers, Judgements

I have learned many things about fashion over the years-the most important has to be “never say never.” I used to swear I’d never wear black with navy or socks with heels. There was a time I even claimed I would never wear skinny jeans–now they are staples of my wardrobe. But-oh-the Romper. Sneaking onto the fashion scene a few seasons ago they took a strong hold this Spring, but my nose stayed turned up.

Until now. 
Why is it that I have become so tempted by the trend?

Coco makes hers look so chic. And then I fell in love with this one, spotted on ModCloth: 
But–could I pull it off? What about with a black blazer and ankle booties? Would it work for a day at the office? I think I’d feel like I was wearing PJs… wait, that actually sonds pretty amazing. And at $50 it might be worth a shot. What do you think? Should I give it a go- or would  you totally judge me?

Trend Spotting- New York Fashion Week

It’s day three of Fashion Week and Spring trends are already emerging–from the pops of tropical color, to the flowing sheer fabrics. Anther look showing up on runway after runway–the little white dress…

And a more surprising trend: a lot of RED. I’ve had such a color crush on red lately– I’m loving that is it carrying out of fall and into spring…

What do you think for the Spring shows so far?

dreamy jeans…

Just when I thought I’d be living in skinny jeans and straight leg pants for the rest of my life…I keep finding myself tempted by wide-legged jeans and flares. 


As spotted on {this is glamorous






and in what maybe my new favorite line– LL Bean Signature:



I’m totally obsessed with their classic summer looks. PLUS- who wouldn’t die for these flats?





What do you think–are flared pants coming back already??

They are just awesomely cool. Happy Monday. 


This is going to be a busy week. The Yankees are going to Oakland– which means the A’s games will be on TV out here (yay!) but it also means I’ll be up into all hours of the night watching them 😉
