I wanted to dress casually for this year's holiday party because when I purchase fancy outfits I never wear those items again. This year I'm relying on my accessories to dress up my look. As a year-end treat for myself I purchased a pair of Cole Haan wedges which I plan on wearing to all holiday dinners and upcoming weddings. Lastly, to pack a punch, I'm whipping out my favoriteKate Spade statement necklace.
I'm looking forward to seeing how I fare against others' holiday attire. My fingers are crossed that I'm not totally off kilter!
Nothing says summer like a meal outdoors on the water. As we New Yorkers enter in to the colder months I wanted to remember a warmer time.
This summer my family and I ate at the Bay Kitchen Bar. The food was good but it was the location that really won me over. The restaurant sits alongside a body of water and the windows and doors are left open so you can feel the breeze and look at the view as you eat.
It is the epitome of indoor outdoor dining.
I was impressed by the ceviche appetizer but found my seafood pasta entree lacking in taste. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit, if not for the food, then for the stunning vistas.
I am shocked by the price of clothing. I'm not sure if my taste has gotten more expensive or if clothes are actually going up in price. I had been lusting after the IRO Delfina sweater, however, the steep price tag made my heart skip a beat. I even found the Outnet'sdiscounted price of $168.75 too high. Feeling down in the dumps, and constantly refreshing the Outnet to see if there were any promotions, I was getting nowhere.
When I first came across the Delfina I had checked Forever 21 for more reasonably priced alternatives. Unfortunately the site didn't have anything that looked similar to the sweater. Just yesterday, however, I was browsing through the holiday sale on Piperlime and I came across the JOA sweater featured above. I could not believe my eyes, the resemblance to my beloved Delfina was almost identical. I had absolutely no hesitations when I purchased the JOA sweater - I'm still in awe of the deal I scored!
