Without a doubt, one of the best things about working downtown is the potential for great lunch dates. Places to go, people to see...
Today I met up with my little brother for lunch, and he told me I looked like a Power Bitch. (Have I mentioned how awesome it is to have a gay brother? It's like having a sister but they don't steal your clothes, and instead always want to dress you up... case in point, we were lounging around my yard on Sunday with the kids when he persuaded me to put on my faux Valentino shoes and a gold belt with my jersey dress and have an impromptu photo session).
Anyway, I do like the look here of the blazer with skinny pants, a bauble necklace, and severe red heels. It feels very New York chic. In fact, I think I'm going to start buying blazers instead of my tried and true cardigans. A good blazer can instantly elevate a look and make it more structured and chic. Currently, all my blazers are part of a suit and come in colors black or gray. BO-RING. Need a red or cobalt blazer in my life, me thinks. Hmm.
I am wearing...
Forever 21 black and white striped tee
The Limited gray blazer
The Limited Exact Stretch skinny pants
Sole Society Reanna pumps
Forever 21 necklace
Fred Flare Carrie sunglasses (they fix everything!)
Pink yesterday, stripes today - the couple that blogs together, stays together! My lunch date today was with the fabulous Connie, a co-worker from my last firm. (Does it feel like musical firms around here? It kinda is.) And Connie and I had a last lunch because she is off to greener pastures in Century City... Connie's outfit today was killer, I should have blogged that. But in the meanwhile, my fun friendship with Connie is a testament to how my friendship with Paloma will also keep on keeping on, even after the offices grow farther apart. Dim sum in Chinatown, always a midday win.
This outfit is neither here nor there - I just wanted to wear this Martin + Osa shirt again, five years later. Don't know why I decided it would go with a tan skirt, but lately, I'm not much for matching. The more it clashes, the better. I've eschewed a shot of the shoes in favor of a better look at this trusty tote.
