Surprise surprise! So Isaac Mizrahi really hits the mark with these oh-so-stylish leather pumps. This pair features an exotic black with a classic yet very of-the-moment snake skin pattern. The best thing about these pumps though is that Isaac did not compromise comfort for style. With a 3.25″ heel, and cushioned insoles, they surprisingly provide all-day comfort.
The vintage inspired shift dress with the feminine ruffle detail, also Isaac Mizrahi for Target, initially caught my eye. But when I tried it on at home, I could not reconcile the poor fit around my hips. I typically love Isaac’s work; I just wish his designs loved my body type. But I am sure I will give him more chances to woo me in the future.
Ok, true. It’s not cold outside, so it may seem illogical to sport a scarf. But, a summer scarf proves to be a cool accessory even on the warmest of days. The trick is to keep it as sheer, thin, and lightweight as possible. And this Italian made, blue multi-striped, linen RO.SE.DA scarf is just right. It transforms this basic barely-there camisole and white eyelet skirt into Hollywood glam.

It’s time; time to take stock. Wednesday, the middle of the work week, is the perfect day to stop, and take a moment to look back and look forward. Wednesdays will be dedicated to featuring a vintage or modern classic piece from my collection.
Today’s feature is a vintage Marina Rinaldi bag. This hard leather bag was handed down to me by a family member. A rich, cinnamon brown, the refined and structured shape is similar to the Hermes Kelly bag. The top handle ensures that this bag will be carried– prominently and visible—and thus taking a central role in the overall look of any outfit. The bag also features a concealable chain interwoven with leather, which adds an elegant finishing touch, and gives the option to carry it over your shoulder.
So yes. Some might say I am just wearing a green “wife beater.” But wait; look again. This green tank top is elevated to summer chic status when paired with a brown, flared, eyelet skirt. The single strand of Shango beads, tri-color AK bangle watch, gold Me Too sandals, and striking two-tone leather Antonio Melani bag seal the deal.

And now this. I immediately fell in love with this Max Studio trapeze dress on a typical trip to Marshalls. Yes, the color and print -a blue, green, teal, black and cream mod design- are divine. But, it also features the softest wrinkle resistant matte jersey I have ever encountered, the cutest princess cap sleeves, a perfectly shirred neckline, and fabulous pockets concealed within the side seams.
The shoes (which will be featured in a later post) are from Nine West via Marshalls as well.
