sorry for the late monday post! i have a lot to discuss. it was a long day at work and there was nothing better than having jane come over, opening a bottle of wine, and playing dress up. jane and i explored through piles and piles of clothing and put together some really fun costumes. first up as seen above. of course everything vintage is from my mother (except the shoes and jewelry – well get to those in a minute) my sister left for paris on thursday and right before, she went home to clean out my mothers cedar closet and brought back to the city all of her special vintage pieces. this is the most amazing cropped stretch calvin top, off the shoulder, so chic, so sexy. i paired it with these velvet slouchy giorgio armani 80′s style pant. i need to wear this outfit every single day. to fully complete the outfit, i used this amazing gifted necklace from send the trend. thanks alix! i wanted to pair it with every single outfit but jane had to intervene and put a stop to my obsessive behavior. i never thought i’d be able to have so much fun on a rainy and cold new york evening. there is so much more to come this week!

    that top is incredible. I wish my mom had the same style as your mom back in the day, I would have a lot more vintage clothes to wear!
    So cute.
    don't you just love when you have a "can't live without" outfit!
