Even before Gossip Girl, I’ve envied those who wore school uniforms.  In my opinion it covers the basics of a well rounded wardrobe . . . a collared shirt, a pleated skirt, a cardigan.  Mix n’ match or wear all together for your own very prep look.

I’ve always been drawn to Mary Meyer‘s graphic use of prints, especially those playing on the idea of cutouts and negative space.         This tent dress is no exception and I’ve been happily jaunting in it ever since it’s come into my possession.  The MM Fall 2012 collection encompasses a good mix of easy basics (a printed tee, a shift dress), mixed with more specialty pieces, my favorites include a degrade hem skater dress and window pane leggings.  Her customized prints are unique, not too serious and fun to wear. Can’t you tell?

Hold It


After seeing all the neon effect necklaces out and about I couldn’t help desiring a little rhinestone sparkle in my life.  I found a great vintage piece and was going for more of a Margiela powder coat, but had to scratch the idea due to possible poisonous side effects.  I ended up going with my original plan, which just proves you should always stick with your first instincts.

Moustache Man and I have been cruising the city for our latest photo sets.  I’m happy to say that we’ve found some great spots around my old internship stomping grounds bringing back fond memories of the burrito truck, diaper photo shoots and general footwear design genius.  More later.

Sports have never been my thing.  (What’s the point if you can hit the ball, but can’t catch it?)  I have, however, been googly-eyed over the recent sporty looks I’ve seen.  Racer tanks, sports bras and sweats have never been so coveted.

I’ve been more open to adding brights and prints into my wardrobe.  Might as well have a little fun right?  Lately, I’ve been obsessing (a little unhealthily) over neon yellow.  I missed out on the perfect slip dress in the shade, but I’m consoling myself with the thought of my latest purchase.

How to whistle

You just put your lips together and blow.

These past few days have been a blur . . . I’ve got so much work I actually wish we didn’t have a long weekend.  But then I think about Thanksgiving and my birthday and know that’s all silly talk.  Let the festivities begin!
