OOTD: What I will be wearing this week

Alright, I’m back on board the outfit of the day train! I was unable to set up my usual “studio” due to something called football. Much as I love football, which is more important? The playoffs or my vain little pictures of myself? Yep, that’s what I thought. I was banished to the hallway. People occasionally ask me why I…

OOTD: What I wore this week

Oh man you guys. I am so excited because it’s cold out today! And maybe even going to snow! I know, I’m sick. But I love the cold. I dug out this fantabulous hat that I got during my last trip to Colorado. I bought it at this little store on Pearl St called Momentum. I loved that it’s a…

OOTD: What I wore this week…and opinions needed!

I took the photo above on Sunday…ahhh, Sunday. Before this crazy work week started. But now it’s Friday and I am so very, very happy for that! I am playing around with the format of the OOTDs a bit — maybe one post a week filled with outfits works better? Not sure yet. Let me know what you think! Also…

OOTD: A dreamy top

Ahhhh, Nanette Lepore. You make such amazing clothing that is flattering on women of all shapes and sizes. I pine for multiple pieces every season. This outfit features Ms. Lepore’s Entangled Top, a masterpiece in hammered silk. I managed to score it on a killer sale at her Soho boutique last spring. I am almost always a 6 in the…

OOTD: Thank you J.Crew!!!

I bought my first J.Crew item in 1995 — it was a heather grey merino v-neck wool sweater that I had until 2004. I can still remember that it cost $65 on sale (at the time the most I’d ever spent on a piece of clothing) and that I was deathly afraid of ruining it. Eventually it succumbed to a…

OOTD: Joie de vivre

It’s been a few weeks now but I have to admit I’m still perplexed by all the Anthropologie hate cynics were spewing during their “Man Shops Globe” reviews. (You can read the venom synopses in this post if you so desire.) “Anthropologie is naming your kid Emma.” Hmmph. First of all, if I have children they’re going to be boys.…

OOTD: I can keep it!

I am about to embark on a new budget. The goal is to pay down all my debt…well, it’s going to take awhile. But to keep myself from going crazy in can’t-buy-this-or-that hell I’ve also allowed myself a small spending budget. My criteria for keeping clothing items is pretty simple: I have to be able to think of three ways…
