It’s never easy to leave Hawaii, especially as each island I visit seems better than the last. I’ve just returned home to NYC from Maui where I spent several days hiking, sunning, surfing, lobstering, eating and working on a project. While there I snapped a few OOTD shots because the scenery was too beautiful not to.

OOTDs 3.4.2013 and 3.7.2013 :: This vest and my axe

image

When I think of sherpa vests and axes city style isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. It’s more like lumberjacks. Flapjacks. Blue ox. That kind of thing. Such is the trick of fashion that I found myself wearing both recently in a look that was decidedly much more urban than dense forest.

OOTD 2.4.2013 :: The long wait is finally over

2013-02-04_001

Wayyyyyyy back in February of 2012, I was clicking through a bunch of the Fall 2012 NYFW shows to see what items would go on my drool list. The top spot was soon taken by this Proenza Schouler photo. Oh that asymmetric hemline! So architectural and perfect. Was it a skirt? Was it a dress? Was it going to make it to production?

OOTDs 11.08.2012 and 11.30.2012 :: Stripes are nice

2012-12-01_006_b

As my closet evolution continues, I’m finding striped pieces to be among the most versatile. Back at LuckyFABB in September I heartily admired the striped C&C California cropped sweater that stars in this OOTD set. I love the metallic silver thread — no boring black and grey for me! See how I styled it within.

OOTD 11.16.2012 :: In Theory

2012-11-16_004

If Phase I of building my closet was about stocking up on high-quality pieces, then Phase II is about refining what I have down to the most flattering pieces. This Theory dress helped me pull off the nearly impossible — define my waist without over-emphasizing my hips. Having an hourglass figure is a lot of fun! But sometimes the items that “should” work on me don’t.

OOTD 11.5.2012 & 11.6.2012 :: Twinset

2012-11-06_004

It’s my favorite time of the year — layering time! There’s something so great about breaking out tall boots and putting on two or three (or four) tops as you get ready for the day. Of course I wasn’t quite ready for the significant temperature drop Sandy brought about. My winter coat is out a full month early! I’m volunteering around affected areas of the city for the next three days but today was an off-day, so I wrapped myself up in lots of layers and headed out to run some errands.
