I’ve degressed to my adolescent self as of late – listening to impossibly cheesy playlists (finally ready to share my boy bands one), dancing and singing around my apartment/hotel room like a fool, and even revisiting old fashion favorites from the era. Enter - the overalls.
Let me preface this by saying the last time overalls were the big thing, I wore mine for a near decade (from age 12-20). I probably still own them, tucked in a random box at my parents’ house. The same may happen again – fair warning. I feel very strongly about this trouser-style version from ASOS – I feel as if it’s the sartorial summary of me. Efficient, polished, and yet just a bit cheesy.
They’re also really comfortable, and the perfect thing to throw on during an “I-have-no-clue-what-to-wear-my-life-is-over” panicked moment. Which happens often.
What’s an old-is-new trend you’re loving? And a more important question – which boy band of the 90s was your favorite? I was a diehard *NSYNC fan, all the way. COMMENT below and let me know!

Happy 2013, everyone! I’m back home in NYC after flying from Thailand yesterday. It’s good to be back.
A long-standing style resolution of mine has been to establish a signature look or uniform. I’m not alone – Victoria blogged about this same quest.
And like Victoria, I’m a firm believer that the classic silk shirt is the signature piece I’ve been looking for.
Over the past month, I’ve amassed a small collection of silk blouses (from Joe Fresh and Hunter Dixon) that I’ve been wearing non-stop. Whether worn alone with skinny pants, tucked into a skirt, or paired with jeans and a sweater on top, the outfit always works.
And while I’m pretty set on the silk blouse front, I’ve identified my next signature piece – the iconic H bangle from Hermes (and in my case, a personalized piece).
What is a signature clothing staple for you? I’d love to know!

During the holidays last year, I was all about vintage dresses and chic suits for my party looks.
This year, it’s all about the accessories.
In addition to my casual, jewel-laden look, I am dressing up my favorite LBD with some of my favorite accessories – a vintage fur stole, a sparkling cuff, a statement clutch (and lip). Finishing the look are my new favorite shoes – the Maree heels from J.Renee.
They are, quite simply, the perfect shoe. The nude color elongates the leg, the silver accents add a formal touch, and their incredible comfort means I can wear (and dance!) in them all night long without complaint.
So…this is yet another blogger contest (when it rains, it apparently pours). I would love your vote – you can vote for me here. I really appreciate your support!
