All Black OOTD’s (A few days in review)

So for today’s post I thought that I would bring you some of the outfits I wore this week.  As I’ve said before most everything is old and I re-wear clothes (oh the humanity!).  But because I take care of them they continue to live.  I took the photos on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to show you what my typical outfits look like.  Now because I live in NYC black is the go to option for most everything (see Monday and Wednesday) and let’s face it, it’s easy.  It’s like black is quintessential to being a NY’er. No other city does all black as well as NYC and in a city that is this dirty and grimy black is it. I found a great article that I think sums it up from The Cut.  “We wear black because we’re not tourists here to see a show; because we are, in a sense, with the band. The band is New York, and the color is black.” As they say, all black eurrything….

Friday is all about jeans and my new top from Banana (Yea I treated myself gurl).  Now mind you all week I have rocked my little anorak jacket from Old Navy that I bought like 6 years ago.  Best $5 spent and like all things, take care of your stuff and things will last.

My point is this invest in quality pieces (take your cues from Europeans) and layer in fun throw away pieces that are trendy.  Not only does it make dressing easier but it’s fiscally sound and leaves you more money to go do shit like eating with friends, movies, and the stuff people do.

So here is the run down

All the jewelry is mostly Chloe+Isabel with some personal pieces

Clothing is a mix of Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, LOFT, New Balance and Aldo Shoes because guess what at a certain point you know what brands work with your body type and these are it.

All my photos are taken with my trusty iPhone because guess what I don’t have anyone to take them for me.  But I like to think you , my readers, are ok with that because guess what…it makes me normal like you.  I also don’t filter anything or retouch I want you to see the real me.  Now I want to go on a shopping bender…FML #adulting sucks

Making your holidays easier :)

So this holiday I’m asking everyone in my social network to shop small and local business, such as mine. I’ve joined a few groups on FB that are helping promote this, but I’m asking YOU blogosphere to be the catalyst. Take a moment and share this via FB, Instagram, Twitter, or here in WordPress. Know why purchasing at a small business helps? This is according to an article from January of this year on http://cognoscenti.wbur.org

In fact, small businesses are the backbone of the U.S. economy, accounting for about half of all private-sector jobs, and 65 percent of new jobs created in the past 17 years.

So to help out my customer base I’m offering an incentive from now until 11/30. Spend $100 on my e-boutique and get a gift card for $10. That’s $10 to use anywhere, anytime just for you as a thank you for showing your support. All my jewelry is backed with a lifetime replacement guarantee and is hypoallergenic. Plus you can only buy the jewelry via a merchandiser (like ME), so that means it exclusive. And who doesn’t love a unique gift? So click the link below and give a one of a kind gift that will last a lifetime.

Silly Shopper

So remember how I posted a list yesterday of the items that I want for fall?  Well thanks to my temp job I am right by the H&M in Herald Square!  So of course I decided to drop in during lunch and look what I found! Pleather sleeved jackets, cargo style anoraks, the cutest leather bag (which I might go back for) and some not so exciting infinity scarves.  I do have to give it up to H&M for the varied selection that they offer and the overall price.  However I personally hate having to dig through racks and stacks of clothing to not find my size.  I digress, what are you thoughts on the below items?

I need your help

Ok blogosphere, I need your help.  I am looking for women (or men) who love to have get togethers, discuss various subjects,  play with jewelry and have fun while networking.  Know someone?  Maybe yourself?  Then you are the person I’m looking for!  I need some hostessess for November and December in person or virtually.  You must want to get FREE jewelry and have a good time.  I will do the work while you play.  I’ve attached the benefits for October if your interested, just email me at jessicabeam719@gmail.com for deets.  Besides a portion of your sales will help me pay my bills this month, and who doesn’t like to shop for a cause?
