Afternoon delight: My new lipstick obsession

photo: Neiman Marcus I’m not abandoning NARS as my favorite makeup brand but I am making a little more room on my medicine cabinet makeup shelf. Who’s joining NARS among my stuff? You may already know the answer… It’s Christian Louboutin! Although I have to admit that Louboutin shoes mostly do nothing for me — though I do admittedly stalk…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Working my workwear magic at a surprising store…

A pretty pink tweed dress, a tonal purse and leopard pumps. At the 5th Ave (NYC) store. J.Crew, you understand me. Every season there’s one store that captures my mind and usually my wallet too. While I’m waiting for Anthropologie to rediscover its work-classics-with-a-twist magic, surprisingly it looks like J.Crew is here to fill in the workwear gap! The latter…

CURRENT CRAVINGS

Off Topic: 50% off Friends & Family brings me right back into Banana Republic (…

On this mannequin: Jacket // Sweater // Top // Jeans // Shoes The top half of this outfit would easily work over a skirt — this one comes to mind. The shopping gods are conspiring with me to deliver one heck of a Fall 2015 wardrobe. Right as I’m falling in love with a bunch of what Banana Republic has to offer…

Quick hits: What I tried on at Banana Republic

Checking in with…Banana Republic

Blazer ($178) // Top (now $60) // Jeans ($110) // Necklace (now $45) // Bag ($158) // Shoes ($128) I’d prefer to swap in a pair of skinny destroyed jeans, but otherwise this outfit is perfection to me. Ahhhhh, Banana Republic. Never thought I’d say those three words together and yet these days this just might be my second favorite store…
