Welcome to my very first blog post…ever! It took a bit of convincing by my dear friend Rachel to get me to create a style blog. My sources of inspiration are infinite, but my mission is to add an elegant and spirited point of view to the blogosphere.
In the beginning, I will post a daily photo, aiming for 5 days per week and random weekend days. I will let you know what I am wearing and where I am going. Most days, it will be to the office or volunteering at the MoMA. Occasionally, it will be a Boardroom to Ballroom (B2B) day. This means that I have to attend an after-work event that requires an in-office update of hair, makeup, shoes, and clothing. The “Ballroom” may be a charity event, a date, or drinks with co-workers. I’ll discuss theories, inspirations, products, On B2B days, I will post two photos and highlight the changes I made.
Later in the year (once I have a feel for where this is going), I will debut some new features and content.
Today’s outfit (given that it is New Year’s Day) is relaxed and casual. (Apologies that this is an iPhone photo – apparently, my camera needs a new battery, which I will remedy tomorrow.) Top: JCrew. Sweater: Nordstrom (similar). Earrings: diamond studs from mom & dad. Lips: Clinique Black Honey. Face: BareMinerals Pure Transformation Night Treatment. Eyes: Victoria’s Secret mascara
Inspiration: A winterized (and less red-carpet) version of this photo of Revenge‘s Emily VanCamp:
