Lace and shorts

One of my biggest weaknesses lately has been J Crew and J Crew Factory store.  Everything is just so well made and the sizing is just perfect for my body.  I often have a difficult time finding shorts but these are just perfect, flattering rise and just the perfect length to show off my 5’1″ frame (yes, I went to the doctor and it appears that I’ve shrunk!)

Have a great weekend everyone!

I’m loving skulls

Skulls have been around for a while, but have recently been more prominent thanks to the amazing creations of Alexander McQueen.  They didn’t really call out my name until I came across this beauty during a Birthday Dinner at Beauty and Essex.  The bag retailed for $2000.00, it just was WAY more than I would ever dream about spending on a trendy item like this.  After much research, I found the maker of the bag – Shay Accessories, and found it retailing for $1500.00…still WAY out of my price range.  Needless to say, I walked away disappointed, but with a new found love for skulls!

While doing some Birthday shopping I came across this top and knew I had to have it.  Not the $2000.00 priced bag (that I STILL dream about) but at a reasonable price that I felt comfortable spending.

Would you have bought the bag? (Confession, I’m still considering it!)

Casual Friday

Yes, I know today is Monday, but this is what I wore to the office on Friday.  I normally don’t wear jeans to the office, however being that it was the last day of our fiscal year, I needed to be as comfortable as possible.  A little update on that craziness, I made it!  Lots of blood sweat and tears and I overachieved on my goal.  It was a monster number folks, but I had a great team by my side to help me get there.  Now it’s the beginning of the year and we’re all back to the beginning of the race.  If any of you are in sales, you know how I’m feeling right now.   I’ll be taking a little time off to recharge my batteries and get ready to hit the ground running on Monday.

An apology

I feel so lucky to have the most wonderful followers and I feel I need to apologize to you.   As you all know, I’m in technology sales and the last couple of weeks have been a complete nightmare due to our year-end.  I have been doing my best to post on time and reply to all your super sweet comments, but I’ve been failing miserably.    I promise once all this is over (and I close every deal), I will resume to posting on time, replying to all your comments and visiting all my favorite blogs.

In the meantime, please have a little patience with me and I promise I will return to normal soon.

xoxo,

Di

Pink shorts

I turned 36 yesterday, yes 36!  Happy Birthday to me!  Frank surprised me by taking me shopping in Soho on Saturday.  Believe it or not, I had a hard time picking out items as I’m a little over Summer and looking forward to Fall items.  I ended up picking up a super soft leather jacket from Bloomies, love!

I decided I needed to be comfortable to walk around, this is what I wore.

PS. I know, there’s that Rebecca Minkoff bag again.  I know you all must be tired of it, but I just LOVE it 🙂

I Really LOVE MY …

Ivanka Trump yellow pumps!  I was inspired by Marion from Marionberry Style to purchase these shoes.  My initial thought was, sure I’ll wear them here and there but little did I know that they would become a wardrobe staple.  Like my Rebecca Minkoff bag, yellow just goes with EVERYTHING.  Take a look at some ways I’ve worn them…

Stripes and Pink

Ooh,  I found this skirt way in the back of my closet.  I really need to clean up better.  Check out other ways I’ve styled it (here and here).    I decided to pair it with this pink top,  I was feeling girly this morning.

Happy Monday all!

Hello Sailor

Remember when I bought these red shorts?  Well, I picked up this top and jeans as well, but these were on sale 🙂   As soon as I saw this top, I knew I had to have it.  There’s just something so cute about those little anchors, they make me feel like a sailor (salute)  And these jeans, well they were so bright that they found me.  Oh by the way, they are all still on sale and available…yay!

Have a great weekend all.  I’m heading to Fire Island with 20 other girls for a bachelorette party for my wonderful friend Meghan!

DVF Dress

I got this dress at the latest DVF Sample sale!  You all know how much I love the DVF sample sales.  I almost didn’t post it because it looks like the camera doesn’t love this pattern too much.  I think it’s fun and unexpected.  I decided to throw on my fave yellow shoes for an additional pop.

What do you think, yellow shoes too much?

Wear to the Office – Color block

I decided to be a bit daring this morning and put on a lot of color.  I did get a few weird looks, but I’m just hoping it was because I was having a great hair day rather than just a really loud outfit.

Is this too much for the office, or would you wear it?
