Hello & Happy Friday! I’m getting excited for this weekend & a chance to unwind….Last week I wore this Asos ruffle top (sold out) & my new favorite Articles of Society jeans for a fun lunch date in Brooklyn….

With SPRING/ SUMMER weather right around the corner, it’s time to finally start getting your new wardrobe in order! One TREND that’s set to continue is “Ruffles on Ruffles” in pretty, happy spring colors! Now is the time to ditch the black winter clothes & start adding some fun & flirty tops & romantic ruffled dresses. With the Ruffle Trend, more is always more, so let the ruffling begin….Weather you will be hitting the city streets or heading out of town on a much-needed tropical Vay-cay, be sure to include something with Ruffles in your assortment

 

This is one of my absolute favorite trends this season & there are so many variations….

Vintage Sweatshirt & Denim in Brooklyn

rockpapersequins_def_leppard_look6696

I always seem to sway between romantic & rock n’ roll inspired looks, sometimes mixing the two depending on my mood. But There’s something about waking up in New York City that makes you want to dress up a little bit tougher and today I was feeling in that kinda mood. I stepped out in this vintage outfit for coffee and a casual day walking around Brooklyn….

I wore this vintage Def Leppard sweatshirt layered over a Splendid tee with my Zara splattered skinny jeans & Nasty Gal faux fur jacket & added black suede Sam Edelman boots, my hot pink suede Monserat de Luca fringe bag and Prada sunnies.

I can never seem to get enough of denim, boots & faux fur jackets this fall season and I like how these can be either dressed up or down depending on your mood or occasion.

I hope you had a great weekend!

Zoe

Dark Florals & Sunny Days

Happy November!

This is that crazy time of year where every day the weather seems completely different and you never know what to wear until that morning when you see how the weather actually is on that day and not what your weather app was predicting the night before…

I had actually planned on wearing my cozy faux fur coats this past weekend but we had an unexpected heat wave which was actually so nice and reminded me of California days…
I’ve been loving Dark Floral Prints paired with denim, boots and leather this season….Also still cannot get enough of off the shoulder tops and flared sleeves for fall, so it was fun to wear this new top I found from Nasty Gal. It’s so pretty and I love how the print looks with jeans & gold accessories. It would also look great with a skirt and over the knee boots.

I wore this ruffly Nasty Gal top with my ripped J Brand jeans, black Dolce Vita boots, favorite Marisa Mason & Calleen Cordero jewelry that’s always on repeat & Prada sunglasses.

It was a beautiful & sunny day & I’m really trying to enjoy all of these last days of good weather before the cold sets in here in NYC….

CHEETAH DRESS & FAUX FUR JACKET IN BROOKLYN

img_6558new

Fall is here! It’s been such a long time since I’ve been on the East Coast during the fall season & I’m so excited about all the pretty leaves changing color & the cooler temperatures here in NYC. I’ve also really been loving the latest new wave/ rock n’ roll/ 80’s MTV inspired collections from Marc Jacobs & Isabel Marant, so when I  found this dress on one of my recent vintage shopping adventures I was really excited because it reminded me of these emerging trends. I’ve always been a leopard & cheetah print kinda girl, but I really liked how this dress has bright pops of color in blue and purple to contrast with black.

Even though it’s fall I still like a bit of color to brighten things up. I like to style my unique vintage and thrift shop finds with whatever I’m currently wearing that’s new or on repeat.

I wore this vintage dress with my favorite faux fur jacket. I found this cozy jacket last year from Nasty Gal, but you can find similar ones here & here. I added my new black Sam Edelman suede boots, favorite pink suede Monserat de Luca fringe bag, Prada sunglasses, Topshop velvet choker & Calleen Cordero leather bracelets.

I always love wearing simple boots with dresses and also like the feeling of throwing on a furry & cozy jacket to give the outfit a bit of texture and edge. This is a fun & playful look that will take you from day into night….
