Wednesday Wish List: Lesson Learned

This weekend, while J and I were on our way to see Hangover2 in Chinatown, we stopped into Urban Outfitters to see if they had the sleeveless trench I mentioned in last weeks Wednesday Wish List (and J was on the hunt for a pair of TOMS). They did AND it was $40 cheaper then online! Woohoo! Lesson learned. Always shop in UO store versus online. Of course, I dug around a bit more looking for other good finds, and the wish list began to build… Continue reading

Happy Spring!

Yesterday was the first day of spring AND the weather is really starting to feel like it here in DC too!

What is the best way to transition your outfit from the warm, sunny afternoons to the cool, starry nights? Spring colored/printed scarfs, mixing bright colors with your winter basics, maxi skirts, layers and bright coats! Here are some pics where I am gathering my inspiration (and hopefully you will too) for my spring wardrobe from some of my favorite style bloggers and fashion sites… Continue reading

Socks & Heels

I am a Fashion Contributor (with a heavy focus on accessories) for HerExchange.com, an online women’s magazine, and wanted to share with you my latest piece. So in case you missed…

Socks & Heels

I know what you are thinking. Does this title mean that socks and heels are a thing now…together?! The simple answer is, yes. Now don’t move over to another article just yet. As you get caught up with the millions of photos taken during New York Fashion Week and even now with Milan, this trend is popping up everywhere.

For those of us that still have cold wintry weather, this trend is definitely worth a try but also be prepared to see this trend on the feet of every fashionista that passes by in the spring as well. The socks and shoes trend is not confined to heels, you will also begin to see socks with feminine flats that give a nod towards a men’s tassel-loafer.

To read the rest of the piece click here.

How do you feel about this trend? Have you tried this yet? I have here and want to continue to mix this look into my wardrobe. My next step is to go find fun flirty socks in bright spring colors. *Sigh* Is it spring yet, DC?

Wednesday Wish List: Color, Color and More Color

Below are just a few things on the top of my wish list…

Belted Cotton Party Dress {Eliza J}
I mean… wow! Could this dress be anymore perfect!? Throw on some tan peep toe pumps,  find a bag with a pop of color and… POW! Best outfit ever.

 

Poppy Red Robinson Tote {Tory Burch}
Speaking of a bag with color… This bag would be oh-so-perfect with the dress above. I am almost positive this bag would go with EVERYTHING in my spring wardrobe. I am determined to own this bag. *sigh*

Had to Share Sale: Gap ‘Tie-Neck Top’

Shady Brown Tie-Neck Top {Gap}
Click on picture to purchase.

Gap is having a ‘44 styles for 44% off’ today only for President’s Day! The 44 is for our 44 presidents. Very cute.

Before I went ahead and bought this top for myself, I thought I would share it with my ALP readers. I am so intrigued by the ‘shady brown’ color and love-love-love the tie at the top. I can see this with a pale pink pencil skirt, army green shorts or even with dark wide-leg denim pants to dress it down for the weekend. The color seems like a perfect neutral and the shorter sleeves make it an easy transition from winter to spring weather. It also comes in, what they call, a ‘sloe gin’ color (click on picture to see other options).  The best part is it is on sale right now for $40.88 from $54.50. I have also heard that you can get an additional 30% off today by entering GAPSALE30 in the promo code box. Score!

Also, all of the reviews of this top suggest to size down. So… if  you are a medium purchase a small. I can see this top being a go-to for many occasions. It is simple but has an extra something. Lastly, note the model has her hair up so that you can see the detailing of the neckline. I would suggest doing the same.

Happy Shopping and Happy President’s Day!
