For all you ladies with or without dates on Sunday: don’t wear pink. Do wear lace and a sexy bun. Be pretty.

After this bloated weekend of social, fashion and blog events is OVER, I plan to unwind by overloading on Bloody Mary’s with Shannon at my favorite secret spot this Sunday. Then stumble to various West 4th shops and treat ourselves to some leather and diamonds, or should I say, pleather and dildos (and pointing and laughing). Just kidding. Just kidding. I love my neighborhood. Love love love.

shirt: Nordstrom? (it’s so old there are no longer tags)
ring: my mom’s
belt: Urban Outfitters
jeans: American Apparel
song on my mix: Fuck You, Lily Allen

Also: I went fishing in my mom’s jewelry box! Luckily, she’s always pretty willing to give me her costume jewelry and allows me to borrow the good stuff. So this past weekend I took another look at her extensive collection, which ranges all the way back to… um, I won’t give away ALL of her secrets. Let’s just say it hits some of the best decades. Below are some photos of what I snagged and took back to NYC. Some of the items are already inspiring outfits and personalities – they all exude femininity. Stay tuned for how I use some of the items.
