default

this is my current default "night out" outfit. it's one of those outfits that i don't have to think about, i pretty much know it'll work. best of all, the hosiery, belt, and shoes are easily interchangeable.

Joie silk minidress (discounted from Bergdorf Goodman/NYC because the belt was missing); D&G lace leggings (old, from Century21/NYC); Balenciaga belt (from eBay); Biba over-the-knee boots (from eBay)


and this is my current default traveling outfit. with the exception of this past weekend when i got snowed in, i've gone home to nyc for holiday parties and other engagements so i've been on trains frequently this month.

T by Alexander Wang classic l/s tee worn under T by Alexander Wang striped linen blend tee (both from Barneys Co-op/Philly); American Apparel "winter" leggings; Miu Miu motorcycle boots (old, from mytheresa.com); extra-long cashmere scarf (two Portolano scarves from Filene's Basement sewn together)

the american apparel leggings were actually an emergency buy. i wore my leather pants on the train ride from philly to nyc and found them a little uncomfortable, plus they made a funny noise on the vinyl seats. so before heading back to philly i popped into american apparel and bought these winter leggings. if this stripe tee was a little more affordable i would have bought two, it's perfect for travel - comfortable but a little more interesting than the plain oversized tees i usually wear.


i'll be heading home to new york this thursday, but i did schedule some posts via draft.blogger.com so the blog won't be completely inactive while i'm away. enjoy the holidays everyone!!

  1. Both outfits are beautiful! I know about the striped tee. I also wanted to get 2 (as I always buy multiples of stuff I really like), but revolve clothing only had one. And now it's sold out everywhere...You look awesome!!!

  2. I love the going out outfit. Is it pretty much everywhere that most girls just do the whole pretty camisole and jeans combo? Because if it is like that where you are too I'm sure your outfit is a welcome break from that trend.

  3. It's me again! I just wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and commenting! I've been following you for a while and I totally love your style! You're definitely one of my favorite bloggers and I love it everytime you update! Also, bluefly has the prada booties on several colors so you might want to "stalk them" too!
    Happy Holidays!
