whiskey dog

My cousin Emily is the creator of WHISKEYDOG WARES - Handmade clothing consciously built one piece at a time.  I remember a few years ago she sent me the CUTEST pinafore dress she made from fabric she found - and now she is creating a little empire all of her own.  She made me this velvet dress in black and red and my sister and I alternate who gets to play in which color.  Each piece is made with love and you can sure tell.  Its so fun to see women build these amazing businesses and watch them grow from day 1. I loved pairing this dress with my Faryl Robin for FREE PEOPLE boots - the black velvet in the shoe totally added to the look!

the arrivals

the thing about trench coats is - well - IM OBSESSED.  I love ones that hit the floor, but its hard to find since im a shorty.  They either drag on like a wedding train or they hit in a weird short spot that makes me look like a box.  This one from THE ARRIVALS is the perfect length AND has removable sleeves (which you will see now that its warmer) talk about the perfect transition piece!

brunchin' in TOBI

When it starts to feel like spring, all I want to do is WALK all over NYC and eat brunch outdoors.  It was perfect weather last week to do just that.  I slipped on my new dress from TOBI and a little leather jacket just in case (which i really didn't even need yay!) and we walked down to brunch.  It was a nice walk, about a mile - and we took pit stops on the highline and on some adorable side streets in Chelsea.  I discovered a street I don't think I had EVER walked down before, which was awesome, too. We ate at COOKSHOP which was SO good, had always wanted to try it -and i'm so glad we did.  Sitting outside was a nice little plus, too. Where are your fave brunch spots in NYC? Looking to try some new spots all summer long!

Refresh your closet with my TOBI favorites:


members only

these rad pants were part of a collection i picked out for dusty rose vintage.  i always love going there and digging through bins and bins of sick vintage.  you always find such incredible things, only problem is you want IT ALL.  there's also something so satisfying about digging through all of these huge garbage bins filled with clothing, and finding a real gem.  i paired these pants with my new members only varsity jacket, which is totally vintage inspired! 




always in black

You can literally never have enough little black dresses.  I am a firm believer in this.  Its hard to find ones that are unique, and not have a closet filled with 100 dresses that all look the same.  When I found this dress at TOBI, I knew I needed to add it to my collection.  It has the perfect amount of flowy-ness, and has a freakin TIE.  It allows me to still feel like im wearing menswear, while wearing a cute dress.  Paired with my new booties from GREY CITY, this was the ultimate outfit for one of the first "warmish" days of Spring here in NYC!

With wedding season upon us, I teamed up with ASOS and PAINTBOX to create my ultimate wedding guest look - from outfit to manicure.  I'm not really into dresses so much lately - so I chose an amazing flowy romper, with the cutest tie in the front (obsessed) and some chunky black platforms, because AWESOME.  I wanted my mani to match the blue/black vibe I had going on with my outfit, and luckily PAINTBOX has every color you could ever imagine, and the coolest designs too! I chose a light blue base with a cool sort of rectangular pattern coming down the nail, in black, of course! I wanted some black in the mani to accent the black tie on the romper and the black shoes, and to give the feminine blues some edge!
