Kimberly Ovitz Harold Knitted Linen Tank - Snagged off for $217 (Retail: $310)

Vintage Wrap Cuff Bracelet in Black/Gold - Snagged off for $24

I can't help but wear my ASOS over the knee socks with these Giuseppe Zanotti wedges every time I pull them out.  It seems like the leopard print stands out on the wedge heel, while the black ankle strap and top of the shoe blends in with the black socks.  They were made for each other.  I finally found the perfect little black slip dress for layering courtesy of Revolve Clothing.  Who knew Anna Sui could make such a lovely little black dress?  I layered a loose knit Kimberly Ovitz tank over it.  Next time I wear this knit I will make sure it stands out more and pair it with something white.  I like knits that are long enough to be a dress, but entirely inappropriate as a dress on their own.  Everything I own for the top of my body either has holes or is sheer.  To me it seems normal, but I remember there was this one girl in my speech class in high school who everyone was mean to because she wore white tees with black bras.  I always liked this girl's style because she was different.  It's funny how times change.  I snagged this vintage gold and black wrap bracelet from Rumi of Fashiontoast.  It is easy to put on at the last minute when you are going out.  Well, I am full of scrambled eggs and banana pancakes so I think I am going to lay down and watch a murder mystery now. 




Alexander Wang Iridescent Striped Tank



Alexander Wang Iridescent Striped Tank in Multi - Snagged off for $347.50 (Retail: $695)

CALi DREAMiNG The One-Piece Swimsuit/Body Suit in White/Medium Beige - Snagged off for $64.80 (Retail: $154)

Siwy Jeans Madeline Studded Short in Gypsy - Snagged off for $95.90 (Retail: $195)

Miu Miu Patchwork Wedges in Brown - Snagged off for $274.03 (Retail: $680) and worn before here with Jimmy Choo bag and Binetti blouse

I've wanted this Alexander Wang tank for so long and I finally took the plunge when it got marked down on the Shopbop website.  I can just see myself wearing it over and over with different things and layering throughout the fall.  Surprisingly, my boyfriend really liked it as well, even after I shocked him with the price.  This CALi DREAMiNG one-piece is great for those days when you don't want to wear a lacy black bralette.  I know you guys are sick of seeing me wear that same old one from Only Hearts, but I am telling you it is the most comfortable one I own.  I just like the idea of using my swimsuits in everyday outfits if I can get away with it.  Studs will never get old in my book.  I like how these denim shorts by Siwy ensure that the studs are not so symmetrical and matchy matchy. 

Yesterday I went on a 20-mile mountain bike ride that was probably the hardest ride of my life due to the heat and crazy Fargo-like winds.  Today I gave my two toy poodles a bath and trim.  I love to groom them and I am pretty good at giving them a great cut.  They lead a sheltered life and I would not want anything bad to happen to them so I do all the work myself.  We went out tonight for sushi at Sushi Den and I made sure my edamame had extra salt because that's the way I roll.



Derek Lam Odesa Lace Up Sandals


Derek Lam Odesa Lace Up Sandals in Gray - Snagged off for $395 (Retail: $790)

Free People Dreamers Seamed and Strappy Dress in Purple- Snagged off for $138 Retail

Anguillan Beach Vendor Magnetic Bead Necklace/Bracelet/Etc. - Snagged from beach vendor Michael in Anguilla for $10

This dress had been hanging in my closet with the tags still attached for over a year so I decided it was time for it to see the light of day.  It is really the perfect summer floral dress made of breathable cotton sateen, the softest kind of cotton.  Purple seems to be a great color for me, but as I get older I notice myself choosing things in mostly blacks, grays, and whites.  I remember when I was younger I wanted everything in pink.  It was a sick obsession of mine.  My mom brought some of my clothes from home here to Denver with her when she visited and I was appalled by all the pink items I had accumulated.  My very first designer purse purchase was a baby pink Juicy Couture satchel that I used to death.  This thing had bubble gum stuck to the bottom by the time I was done with it and trust me, the bubble gum wasn't mine.  I say wear pink while you still can and enjoy wearing it.  

These Derek Lam Odesa sandals had been on my mind for a long time before I finally took the plunge.  The problem was that I could not see them in person to investigate the cork heel.  I try to stay away from cork as it isn't very durable.  However, these are almost a faux cork.  The heel is made of leather with a faux cork laminate.  The color gray is a neutral color perfect for most outfits and the shoes are unbelievably comfortable.  This necklace I am wearing actually unwraps into a long string of magnetic beads.  You can basically make it into whatever you want, a bracelet, anklet, etc.  When we stayed at Cap Juluca in Anguilla there was a really sweet guy that came by selling all kinds of jewelry.  Knowing me, I never let a shopping opportunity pass me by, even when laying on the most perfect stretch of pristine beach I had ever seen.  Needless to say, Michael made a lot of money off of me or should I say, off my poor boyfriend.
