It's official: I've busted out the leggings.  The sun was shining gloriously as I perused the market today, but it just wasn't enough to take the slight chill out of the air.  Sadly, I left empty-handed.  As much as I wanted to buy the baked bread and the deliciously thick Belgian brownie that was calling my name, I knew it was my starvation mode kicking in--big time.  That'll teach me to attempt to cruise the market on an empty stomach. I knew if I bought one thing, it would be the beginning of the end, so I did the sensible (weight-conscious) thing and went home.  I came very close to buying a Christian Dior denim jacket that I came across in a charity shop, and then realized that the name was the only reason I wanted the jacket in the first place.  As much as I was trying to talk myself into it, it just wasn't my style at all.  Even though it doesn't seem like it, today was a win! I saved myself from a lot of useless buying today, which will only lead to bigger and better things later.  Pace yourselves, my fierce fashionistas.  What you don't buy now will come back to you tenfold!  Fashion karma is the best!

What I'm Wearing

Hat: H&M  Sunglasses: Rayban  Jacket: H&M
Jean: American Eagle  Clutch: London boutique

As the daylight lessens and the cold air moves in, my sadness at leaving neon colors, short flouncy skirts and bare legs quickly turns into excited anticipation--Fall is on its way, which means hello again to leather jackets and boots!  It's finally cool enough to wear this oh-so-cool biker jacket that I snagged at H&M over the summer.  I can't confirm or deny, but I'm pretty sure the mere presence of this cropped creation upped my cool status a few notches, and, when paired with these accessories...oh, let me tell you:  I am obsessed/head-over-heels in love with my black fedora and Raybans.  If there were two accessories I could save in a fire, these would be them.  I don't know what it is about this killer combo, but every time I wear them, I have to hold myself back from strutting the streets a la Saturday Night Fever style.  Tell me, my fierce fashionistas, what favorite accessories make you want to strut your stuff?

What I'm Wearing

Top: H&M  Trousers: Primark  Shoes: Don't remember (sorry)  Clutch:  London boutique
Happy Monday, my fierce fashionistas!  Hope the glorious weather of this weekend treated you well!  I made the most of mine by color blocking this summer's fiercest colors, while I still can.  I must say, these Primark trousers that I came across last year have served me well and are one of my favorite pairs!  With a simple switch of a top, they carry me through all seasons, which is going to benefit me this month, as I will not be spending money for quite some time.  My four day jaunt in London spiraled me into a recession.  What can I say, London is an expensive town and I am an expensive girl!  Oh well, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade, right?  This is the perfect opportunity to get creative with what I already have and make the most of my already fabulous duds!  Stay tuned and...

What I'm Wearing

Since today's outfit post got rained out, I decided to take this opportunity to upload some of my London pics  taken in Spitalfields--an artsy/trendy area.  When I wasn't busy gawking at the street art and other catchy one-liners, I was combing the vintage shops.  I tried my best to emulate the punk/hipster look of the area's natives, but I couldn't, for the life of me,  imitate their "slouchy too-cool-to-care" swagger.  I guess my cool points don't reach to such levels!  If any of you fierce fashionistas happen to venture to the London town, I highly recommend you swing out that way.  The ethnic cuisine and quirky coffee shops are a delight, the art is plentiful, and the fashion finds will keep you busy for hours!  Until next time...

What I'm Wearing

Shirt: FNO 2012  Jeans: American Eagle  Stilettos: New Look
Sunglasses: Rayban Watch: Michael Kors

Good day to you, my fierce fashionistas!  Today's theme is comfy and casual.  Frolicking the streets of London has left me wiped out!  As much as I'd like to spend the next few days in recovery mode, I am sad to report that they will be spent in the gym, shedding the pounds I put on during my macaroon marathon.  

I took my first outfit opportunity to rock my Fashion's Night Out souvenir!  Not only is the cotton super soft, but it hangs in all the right places.  I bought it on Bond Street and managed to snag the last one!  How lucky was I?  I offset it with stilettos, of course, and this AMAZING clutch I happened to stumble upon during one of my shopping escapades. I was in such fashion shock that I don't even remember the name of the store!  Isn't it a studded dream come true?  I am officially OBSESSED and am a proud owner of two different colors.  It was the highlight of my trip!  Have a fantastic day, fashionistas and...

London Town

Hello, my fierce fashion followers! London has taken me by storm! No stilettos for this fashionista! As much as I would love to martyr myself for fashion's sake, I opted for sensible flats and added some color pop in accesories. As you can see, I finally made it inside Buckingham Palace! If you happen to go, you can get your ticket stamped for a free admission! Who knows, I may be back! Stay tuned for more pics to come and...

Jil Sander Brown Bag" Special." Is it Special?

For every fashion enthusiast lies an equally exacerbated critic, forever accusing our industry's finest of slapping a fancy name on a mediocre product and charging an astronomical price, all in the name of "fashion." All I can say is, oh boy, are they going to have a field day with this latest fashion debut!

Jil Sander (one of my most favorite designers) has escalated the latest and greatest in designer accessories to a whole new level by throwing out the time honored tradition of conventional handbags and going with...well, an actual paper BAG.  Behold *drum roll* the Vasari bag!  The days of brown  paper bags being reserved for the exclusive use of elementary youngsters are no more! Why?  Because Jil Sanders said so!   Move aside, school aged children.  Fashionistas will take it from here.

What makes Jil Sander's paper sack more special than any lunch bag found in any supermarket?  Wax-coated paper and reinforced seams, that's what!  And, for a whooping 185gbp, this embellished sack can be all yours!   While I don't see myself rushing to buy one of these Jil Sanders creations any time soon, I am in a rush to find out who will!  Tell me, my fierce fashionistas, will you?
