Episode 1: The Burberry Look
Wednesday, February 27, 2008
If you've got the dough, then spend it at Leigh & Luca. They are makers of beautiful scarves and because of them, I'm now a lover of scarves for all times of the year. Their oversizes scarves have amazing patterns and motifs. I agree that they are "luxurious wearable art." The greatest thing about their amazing hand-woven scarves is that they will serve you also as shawl, sarong, or travel blanket. I think I need to invest in one.

Hmmm? Was my dress always this short? I don't remember that. With the extreme weather we had today, it would have been better to be more covered up. Though it was a simple outfit, I wanted my shoes to be the standout of the outfit. I love their play on androgony. Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman.

If you are like me, you've enjoyed the Geico commercials with the cavemen. If it weren't for the commercial with the caveman going through the airport, I probably wouldn't have discovered Royksopp. My first tempation is to post the video for "Remind Me" but I'm sure you've heard the song plenty of times so I will post another favorite.

I have to say... I haven't gotten as excited about a Target Go International Collection as I have for this one. I got a few pieces here and there from the Proenza-Schouler and the Libertine line but the last few designers have left me feeling nothing but blah. Erin Featherston had some cute pieces, but in real life, they were nothing to waste your money on. I'm hoping that it won't be the same with Jovovich-Hawk. Ugh... eight more days and counting. BTW, where can I find the cute boots they paired with most of the outfits?
These three outfits are on "my must check out" list. As mentioned in an earlier post, I want little dresses for spring. I also love the vest/ leggings combination. It's a put together outfit without the fuss.

I wasn't feeling too cute in any case but hitting snooze on the alarm didn't give me the luxury to play around with the outfit. I made it to work just in time. After the fact, the dress would have been complemented well with a belt. I did think about it but adding a belt would just hike up the dress a bit and it's already a bit short. Okay... I got it! Next time, I will wear the dress as a tunic and pair it with a belt and leggings. Look out for that outfit in an upcoming post.

I'm not sure why I keep wearing all black. I used to wear all black. Then maybe three or four years ago, I started feeling more comfortable in color. Then this past fall, I started to wear all black again. Maybe it makes me feel more chic. I definitely don't believe that black makes you appear thinner (if it does or not). To me, it's more about the shape of the clothes you buy to suit your body type.

I can't get enough of the jewelry offerings from J.Crew. This is only one piece that I want from their current selection.
J.Crew Kaleidoscope $65
I'm all about scarves and shawls. Lightweight scarves are a great accessory for spring. They will brighten up any outfit.
I’ve been wanting a cardigan/ wrap top. They are versatile and create a fabulous drape.
Tank tops are my summer/ spring staple. I love the ones by Vince. The quality and construction is worth the price tag.
Vince Athletic Tank $48
I've been wanting a Burberry trench. At its price point, I will just continue wanting.
If you want it to or not, skinny jeans are not going anywhere. They make anyone look FABULOUS! I love the ones by Rich & Skinny. They are uber comfy and lightweight.
Little dresses are a must for spring (or any season really). They make your legs appear longer and they are effortless.
Gladiator sandals are stronger than ever! Flat or heeled, they will sexify (Do you like that word?) any outfit.
