WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN?: style

19 Nov



In 2010 when i did my Style Diary, i couldn’t keep up with the shooting, now I can’t keep up the posting! lol…so it goes.  So yea, I’m playing a little catch up with this  Style Diary of mine. 

Back in the 3rd week of October the weather was probably cooler than it has been in November and it seemed like a had a lot more running around than usual to do.

My favorite outfit of the week is between Tuesday and Friday, but I think Friday wins. Friday is my black H&M dresses paired with my, black vintage sweater, that has become my temporary jean jacket replacement until i buy another jean jacket.  Tuesday almost won because i pulled out my necklace that I bought in South Africa, that I rarely ever wear, but I felt sexier Friday, so leather mini dress wins!

style diary, week 9

4 Mar

Lucky number 9!  Ok, actually i don’t find 9 lucky, but I’m a wee bit delirious at the moment, since I’m working on an 1 1/2 hours of sleep, but it’s all good.  Last week i mentioned the sad news that my SLR camera broke and is in the shop.  As a result, this week I played with my point and shoot camera, to see if I could come up with some acceptable imagery.  I think that it worked out pretty well. What do you think? No double-outfit day posts like last week’s Friday, but i did get inspired by horizontal images.

This week my favorite picture was Thursday.  In the Style Diary it seems like I rarely smile, but I actually do, so I thought the picture caught a great moment.  Thursday may also be my favorite outfit, I love the teal corduroys and the printed top. But I have to go with Saturday, my denim jacket has been my go-to item, and I’m definitely feeling the maroon tights; I need to add colored tights to my wardrobe stat!

Ok, I had to keep it short and sweet, this week is CRAZY…and that’s an understatement. I’m going to bed!

style diary, week 8

26 Feb

Waawhoooo! Week 8, 2 months down! Like every week until May, I have a lot to jam into my days with very little sleep, so comfort seems to be the key to everything for me. Even when I’m going ‘out out,’ I’ve taken the getting dressed up thing down a few notches. Heels seem like such a pain in the butt right now…but i’m sure I’ll get over it when the weather warms my toes.

You’ll notice that my Harllem lace-up boots by Steve Madden, that debuted in Week 7, are in full effect this week. They are so comfortable and perfect with this icky weather. Whether I’m wearing them with legging, relaxed jeans, or a skirt, i tend to feel bad ass in them, sort of like a sexy girl rockin’ Tims in a weird way.

Since I’ve started Style Diary, I haven’t posted my clothing changes. We all have days we wear more than one outfit, so I decided to post mine on Friday. I’m not sure if I like how it looks aesthetically on the site, but when i make a decision you may be seeing more.

Anywho, my favorite picture this week was Sunday, maybe it was the white shirt that made my eyes look striking, but I just thought the picture was the strongest. My favorite outfit of the week was Friday night. You can’t go wrong with a leather skirt and I’ve been a little bit obsessed with denim jackets as of late. I thought it was a cute outfit for a run-in with my crush, even if i didn’t end up speaking to him. lol

Be pleased with how you look each time you walk out the house! Enjoy the rest of your week!

style diary, week 7

20 Feb

What comes after a Week of Insanity (that’s what I dubbed Week 6)? …Madness?  I don’t know what it is, but last week was one hell of a week, and on top of that I had some technical difficulties; my baby (my camera) died!  Thankfully, as I write this, I’m getting more centered; next week’s Style Diary, among other things will be up (fairly) on time.  I’m really looking forward to next week, but I’ll tell you more about that when things are finalized, it involves a lot more writing though.

For Week 7 and even this upcoming week, I’ve fallen into my normal rut of lack of self-discipline. I rarely stick to things; I’m amazed and proud of myself that I’m able to say I’m posting Week 7 and working on Week 8.  Two months!  But when you’re running late for classes, going to meetings, on the phone constantly for your client, practicing hosting, working on personal photo projects, or just wanting to relax…taking a picture of what you sometimes literally threw on is not always fun, and there are many days that I think this whole thing is narcissistic and I want to quit. It’s actually the positive responses to the Style Diary and the many hits to the site that keeps me going, so a big thank you, to you!

You’ll notice that there is a new pair of boots on my feet this week!  There not quite the Sendra Old English boots I mentioned here, but they’ll work.  I can’t wait to wear them with dresses.  Also they worked out perfect with this snowy, icy weather we’ve been having here in NYC.  I feel I’ve been in a masculine and overly comfy phase lately, and these boots only add to it.

My favorite outfit of the week is Friday.  I don’t get to wear my Alfred Sung blouse very often, so it was great to finally wear it with the vintage lace-up boots like i envisioned.  My purse strap that I wear as a belt was the perfect touch.  Friday was also my favorite picture of the week. Oh and Wednesday was a snow day, no classes, and I stayed inside all day, no cameras allowed! =)

See you next week, early, for Week 8!

style diary, week 6

10 Feb

The Week of Insanity, that I mentioned in Week 5, kicked my butt, I’m still recuperating, but I tried my best to look fly, while managing to keep my head from exploding. This week I decided to change things up on how i shot the pictures.   I knew we were going to start working with triptychs at the beginning of the semester, so I decided to experiment a little early.  I’m on the fence on if I like it for the Style Diary. You can see each piece better, but there is just something about seeing an outfit  in its entirety.

I have to admit, it was a bit of a struggle this week to put on clothes, and deal with 15-hour+ days again; juggling so many aspects of my life.  More than anything comfort took precedence.  I was also extremely excited that I FINALLY replaced my stolen fedora!!!  (Sadly last spring someone stole my hat off my head while I was passed out on the train)  I wore it for almost 2 years, and it was my favorite hat, so I was heartbroken.  Now my heart is mended and you’ll be seeing my fedora a lot more.  I have a thing for fedoras, maybe it was my obsession with Indiana Jones and his big brim fedora as a kid.  (although I only wear short brim fedoras)

I’m kind of indifferent about my outfits this week; i think I’m in a funk.  If I have to choose though, Tuesday is my favorite…when in doubt putting on an Armani blazer always makes you feel better I suppose.  My favorite collection of pictures are Friday.  I think it’s more interesting than the rest, and the boots look vibrant against the black and white background.

Thank god for snow days, so I can play catch up. Next week’s goal, Style Diary on time!








Style Diary: Week 5

2 Feb

Oh what a week, my last week of sanity!  Although my wardrobe for Week 5, doesn’t necessarily reflect someone who is about to lose their marbles, I do know that there will no longer be pictures such as Tuesday of Week 4 or this week’s Monday. Note, on Monday I stayed under my sheets all day writing, reading, and relaxing.

The 1st part of the week was chill, then I needed to tie up some loose ends, and then get some serious partying in.  You may remember that my previous post, In the Know, was for a party at the Brooklyn lounge, Deity, which DJ Dummy was spinning.  That was Saturday’s outfit.  Amazing party, we shut the place down!  My favorite outfit and picture though, is Friday.  It was perfectly suited for an incredible night of dancing at Santos; Just Blaze officially moved to my second favorite DJ after that night.

Other than that, there was nothing too spectacular in styling on my part this week.  Actually what I did find that was spectacular, was how pretty my eyes are with a little light shined into them.  Let me find out all this time that I wished I had light eyes; I only had to walk around with a spotlight attached to my head!

Until next week…we’ll see how my week of insanity works out. Wish me luck!

style diary: week 3

18 Jan

I started week 3 in Florida and ended it back in good ‘ol NYC.  I’ll start by saying please forgive Sunday’s outfit, it was my 1st day back, and the weather was crap, so I only left the house to do laundry, and I’ll leave it at. (hahaha that kind of rhymed)  Anyway, I just had to put that disclaimer out there…i love that shirt, i think its hilarious, but wearing it out seems like I’m trying to advertise.

Although it wasn’t particularly hot in Florida, I decided to make use of the sunshine and hang out with my mom’s new cows.  I was happy with quite a number of the shots; you can’t go wrong with natural light.  My favorite image is Friday, it was a breezy afternoon, and I love how the scarf and dress swayed in the wind; my favorite outfit though is Tuesday.  Probably anytime I wear that dress it will win my outfit vote, it’s my go-to casual dress!  It was a great find from my good friends at Loveday 31, an awesome vintage shop in Astoria.  Monday almost won, because I think it’s the closest mesh of my style (although i don’t feel i have or should have to have a particular one), but as I said, I love that dress. What are some of your thoughts?

*** oh and actually click on the pictures or links, I find that the colors are a bit more accurate and less compressed than what’s embedded in the blog.

Until next week…
