OOTD: A pop of polka dots

Who? I adore polka dots! Anthropologie’s done really well with them this year, too, expanding my collection more than I’d like to admit. I missed Guinevere’s Pattern Ponder Cardigan when it was full price but managed to find a lone size L buried in the Chelsea Market Anthro’s sale room. (Thanks to the community for all the tips to help…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

OOTD: Summer Twilight

I ain’t afraid of no pattern. Summer may be long gone but my love of florals knows no season. Anthropologie carried Leifsdottir’s Summer Twilight Dress (you can read my review here) but strangely didn’t carry the blouse version in this outfit. When I saw the blouse I knew I no longer needed the dress. I ended up buying the top…

CURRENT CRAVINGS

OOTD: Chain mail

Focus, focus. As often happens with me, I walked into Banana Republic looking for one top and walked out with something else instead. The something else this was the Silk Origami Blouse ($80) in dark pewter. I love the dark silvery color and the pleats lining the v of the neckline. The color is a lot darker than it looks…

OOTN: Partying at (and with!) J.Crew

When it comes to customer events, J.Crew is the gold standard. I’ve been to three or four of their parties now — two of their invite-only Collection Store parties and one store opening party ages ago. A couple of weeks ago I added one more notch when I had the chance to attend J.Crew’s Holiday Insider Party at their 5th…

OOTD: Pretty in pink

Mmmhm. Have you ever waited and waited and waited for an item to go on sale, only to miss out when it finally does? That’s what happened to me with this Leifsdottir skirt. I originally tried it on last spring at Bloomingdales. While I loved the skirt, the original pricetag meant I had to wait. So I did. I mourned…

OOTD: Search for solids

On your mark, get set, ornate! Note: several of you emailed to ask if I have bigger versions of these photos. Yep! They’re in my OOTD set on Flickr (which is spoilery for upcoming outfits as a warning).   Whenever I try to buy closet basics I end up getting distracted by shiny things instead. Case in point? Anthropologie’s Corinthian…

OOTD: Here’s my card

Call me. Thanks for all the welcome back wishes yesterday! It only gets me more excited about sharing outfits. Over the past several months networking has become a bigger part of my job. I feel like I’m out there at least once a week, introducing myself to other people in the technology industry and thinking of ways to connect my…
