Bringing that office appeal OOOTD 1/29/14

Get it? Office Outfit Of The Day 🙂

I live by the adage of “Dress for where you want to go and not for where you are” so based on today’s ensemble I am hoping to move up the corporate ladder. I loooooooove my wool slacks from Banana Republic and given the cold weather we are having in NYC they are great.

What do you feel this look says?

Pearls and Chambray OOTD 1/28/14

yea I did it, finally did it. I broke down a bought a chambray shirt……I scooped it up while at Old navy the other day. it actually the men’s skinny and it fits pretty great across the bust (not so much the hips if ya know what I mean). Also today is the first day of the spring semester, so I guess you could say that this is my school outfit. I think I might have found a new photographer…….

Air force ones redesigned?

I for one am not about that sneaker life however in recent light that Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci is doing a collabo with Nike.  I scoured for photos by of course since they don’t hit until spring I could only find one photo.  I’m thinking that i might have to go cop a pair,  I also included some articles about the launch.

A polar what? OOTD 1/23/14

Last night I took myself down to Old Navy to look for a sweatshirt and this is one of the items that I came out with. A sparkly gray flecked sweater, a chambray top and another fuzzy sweatshirt. I am all about the sweatshirt look this year, comfy, casual, dressy and easy. What is your face style piece right now?

Hana Sushi

So yesterday I took myself down to Hana Sushi based off my co-workers recommendations (I was feigning for some sushi). The place has minimal decorations and furnishings and small tables. My server came right away and I ordered the King crab appetizer (see photo of crab legs), kani, California rolls, and cucumber rolls. Yes that was all for me, fatty mcfatterson. Everything was fresh as it should be. The crab legs were honestly my fave, they were pan seared and covered in a spicy sauce with fish roe. Service was quick and friendly always a plus in my mind. For a quick lunch the place was good and is in quick walking distance of my job another plus. I would say 3 out of 5 forks.

Speaking of Bespoke

I love the people over at racked.com……they always have articles that I want to read, like 22 places to have bespoke clothing/shoes made. I don’t know about you but I’m at the point in my life where I want clothing that is made for me, not some cookie cutter ideology of what my size should be. Lets face it I’m roughly 46x42x46 which makes me a curvy thang! So trust me when I say that I have learned where I can and cant shop :/ Well now racked has helped out by pointing me in the right direction to get bespoke clothing. Keep in mind most of this list applies to men but there are some spots for us femmes. Go to Linda’s for a good bra fitting and check out Alex & Eli for a customer blazer to top it all off (rumor has it the Man Repeller loves the executive blazer), theres more to the list, so click the link and check it out!
