Round Up: Best Merch to Save the Boobies

It would be remiss if I let October go by without posting about ta-tas. As an advocate of pink on the reg, (see blog title…), I can’t help but love all the pink support that comes out during Breast Cancer Awareness month. What can be better than shopping AND helping other people?? Here are some of my favorite products you can purchase this month that will support the fight again breast cancer:

Wish List: Long Sleeve Dresses

My office is freezing. I mean knit hat, thick socks, fisherman sweater, thermal pants, and scarf kind of freezing. I don’t want to give up my dresses for work, so I have been hunting for long-sleeve guys (that I can then layer the aforementioned pieces over… I kid). Here are some of my favorites, almost none of which I can afford… Enjoy ūüôā

Wish List: Long Sleeve Dresses
Starting at the top… The darling and affordable H&M sheath dress, followed by the very unaffordable Balmain black blazer dress, Daniela Gregis shift dress, 10 Crosby Derek Lam printed plaid dress, Preen black and white dress, Balenciaga long sleeve shift dress, Moschino Cheap and Chic patchwork dress, Tory Burch Kathy dress, Diane von Furstenberg printed dress, Michael Kors tweed herringbone dress.
I should note – DVF and Michael Kors have a lot of great options that are not outrageously priced (ahem Balmain). Which is your favorite??

Trend Report: Pointed Toe Shoes

Trend: Pointed Toe Shoes
1. J. Crew 2. Jimmy Choo 3. Marc Jacobs 4. Valentino 5. Kate Spade 6. Alexander Wang 7. Valentino 8. DVF
I’ve always adored pointed-toe shoes for their super-feminine/kick your ass dichotomy… Let’s be honest a round or peep-toe style just won’t get the job done. These are some of my¬†favorites¬†for Fall. (Notice that one pair is much bigger and more central than the others… Yuppp, would kill for these Wangs.)

Wish List: Summer Workwear

For the first time in my life, I am in a position where the dress code is defined by those two dreaded little words: business professional…. dun dun duuuuun. There are a number of problems with this. First, I want to look fashion forward and young. Second, it is a million and one degrees outside (yet, the office is freezing). And third, I don’t want to get bored with my options.¬† So here are the items I am craving right now for the office, that are still young, cool (in every meaning of the word), and work-appropriate…

Clockwise from Top:

Ray-Ban Clubmaster Glasses… These have been at the top of my list for a while – sunglass or eyeglass version, doesn’t matter.

Topshop Cream Vest… Unique alternative to a blazer. Layer over a dress, or pair with trim trousers and a silk tank.

Cartier Louis Tank Watch… An absolute classic watch, and plus Cartier is the office in discussion.

Antonio Marras Wide Leg Trousers… Mix business and fashion by adding a fitted blazer or crisp button down to these floral trousers.

Stackable gold rings (Nordstrom) The best way to keep your personality at the office is with jewelry. I would wear a couple on a few fingers to stay true to my style.

Nina Ricci Pencil SkirtA bright, fun alternative to the usual black pencil skirt.

PS by Paul Smith Button Down…¬†A menswear inspired blue oxford shirt is my new chambray shirt.

How would/do you stay fashion-forward and young in the corporate world? Tell me in the comments!

Summer Wish List…Round 1

Summer Wish List
Clockwise from Top Left: HANNE BLOCH one piece, Rebecca Minkoff Suri Wedges, Madewell Perfect Chambray shirt, Elizabeth & James Silk Floral Shorts (similar), Nicky Butler Purple Turquoise Bronze Ring (similar), Gryphon Metallic Epaulet Striped Dress
Here are a few lust-worthy items to start off the week. Right now the weather is not cooperating with anything my Summer wish list, but a girl can dream… Hope you had a great weekend!

Splurge vs. Steal: Tortoise Watch

splurge vs. steal: tortoise watch
Michael Kors makes the best watches. I have one in silver and one in rosegold, but I’ve had my eye on this tortoise shell watch on the left for a while now. This gorgeous¬†Michael Kors¬†watch is $225. Unfortunately, since the real world just creeped up on me, this watch isn’t¬†in the budget right now, so I went searching for a similar, less pricey option. You are welcome, readers… On the right you have an Anne Klein version, which is just $65! I will never stop lusting over Michael Kors watches, but a cheaper option is always welcome.

Splurge vs. Steal

These claw bracelets have slightly different gold tones, but the major difference between them is a price of about $900! Pause for a moment to take that in, because my mind is still reeling… The unbelievably gorgeous piece on the left, which is a cuff I have been lusting over for years now since I first saw it in her showroom, is a Pamela Love creation which carries the price tag of a mere $920.00! On the right is a version made by ASOS, which retails for just over $20.00. Seems like an obvious choice, no?

P.S. I’d like to wish the most amazing Mom in the world a¬†wonderful¬†Mother’s Day! I miss you and love you very much. XO
