I've had this top for a couple years, but seem to keep finding new ways to wear it. I love it, because it's like wearing a beautiful scarf that you can tie multiple ways. For some reason, I felt kind of rockstar-ish in this outfit, though I definitely didn't act it on this particular evening. I drank too much wine at a bbq and wussed out minutes after arriving at Russia House maybe around 11:30 (though I don't even think it was that late). Lame.

Also to file under Lame: my arm is very sore from playing the sword fighting game in the Wii Resort. I swear our generation will have a definition for Wii elbow in the dictionary.

Forever 21 vest

necklace from a boutique in Hoboken
Hermes bangle


PS Ambar, thank you so much for the very kind shout out!

  6. Perfect! Just perfect! I have a top that I call a (clubbing top) that I don't wear anymore. Maybe if I put a vest or something over it to I could wear it during the day.
