NY Street Style: Lady turns it OUT.

This lovely lady posed for me on a cold day in New York City. Everything about her outfit is incredible. She collects vintage Bakelite, and she MADE her own fur wrap/scarf. I don't even have any idea how one goes about making a fur stole, but apparently this lovely New Yorker is a fashion genius. Her dress and cardigan are from the 1950's, and they added cozy layers while creating an hourglass silhouette. She had the perfect combination of vintage glamor and modern trends.  I loved her sky high chunky clog platforms, her leopard print phone case, her incredible bright red hair, and her general high fashion fierce femme demeanor. We talked about our shared love of fashion and vintage finds, and she let me document her whole situation, down to her bright blue nails
Internet, I have a new style icon.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Top 7 Editorial Fashion pieces.

So SNAP magazine (love you, snap!) brought this article on Fashionista to my attention. I always notice that editors use the same pieces from collections over and over. I like seeing this all in one place! I am partial to the D&G bustier. (Rhinestones, duh.)

Nail Game: Lady Sings the Blues Navy Sparkle

Ok so I love pastel colored Spring nails. But I decided to mix it up and use this Deborah Lippmann Midnight Navy nail polish. I find that her nail polishes are a bit expiz, but they are also really unique colors and they last a really long time. This color is a midnight navy blue with sparkles called "Lady Sings the Blues". Puts me in a Billie kinda mood. Perfect for a lazy Sunday don't-mind-if-I-do kind of feeling. I like the dark nails in the spring. I love to pair dark colors with light floral prints. 

There is something about breaking seasonal rules that makes my inner fashion nerd jump for joy. 

Burgundy in the summer? Coral in the winter? Navy in the spring? Pastels in the Fall? Yes Please!

Outfit Post: Spring Menswear. Oxford heels!

New fave necklace. I feel like it is sneaky gay bling. The negative space forms a triangle! 

Outfit Deets!

Oxford Heels: Seychelles, on sale haaay.
Necklace: Vintage, http://www.etsy.com/shop/tomlynnbiondo

This outfit is pretty simple for me. I'm not a big one for menswear normally , but I've been itching for a way to make it feel femme. I don't like blazers or flat oxfords on me (too butch!), but oxford heels are a nice alternative. Whats your fave way to wear menswear?
