POT OF GOLD – last post of 2009

Happy New Year folks! I wish everyone a new year of happy love, wishful thinking, big steps, brag worthy accomplishments and good health.

Here’s a dress that has nothing to do with December 31, 2009… just a pretty little thing to prance about the new year in:

grey matter

Another way of easy dressing without looking lazy, is utilizing the color grey! Grey is so underrated. A few key, grey pieces and you’re pretty much set because almost every color goes well with grey (except brown, in my book)… and of course, black is like grey’s older sister. Here are some of my favorites.

lace gone right

I’m not a usual lover of lace but when it’s fabricated in a certain non-lacey, non-old lady way, it can just all come together and make perfect sense. I love these lace pieces:

ready to work

Although work attire is simple and relaxed here in the Middle East, I remember back in my NYC days, it was an entirely different story. I at first ran around to job interviews wearing my sister’s black, Jcrew, pant suit. Then later after scoring a job, I had to keep up with my stylish workmates who shopped waaaay more than I did. Of course, work dress code depends a lot on which field you work in and what position you might hold, but overall, New Yorkers are known (amongst a billion other things) for their fabulous work getups.

These days, I not only work in the high tech industry, which is notorious for it’s relaxed work attire, but I work in a country that doesn’t enforce any kind of work dress code. (or any kind of code code period.) It’s such a breeze! You wake up, shower or not shower and throw on a pair of dog haired jeans and a crumpled up top you grabbed from the dirty laundry. Who cares?

Well, sometimes I do. I can miss those L train fashion packed commutes, rallying uptown in the morning then back out to Billyburg in the evening, peering over at a girl’s skirt impatiently swishing around while waiting on the platform, or a boy’s sneakers planted directly below my subway seat gaze. Each day was truly a full day of fashion inspiration.

In my work wear daydream today, I picked out some work pieces that I could wear just about anywhere. Shopping on: opening ceremony, urban, anthropologie and shopbird.

a proposal to tsumori

I’ve been drooling over Tsumori Chisato for a little while now, feeling nothing but utter admiration and love for everything she creates. I honestly feel like I could be happy wearing only her designs and no one else’s for the rest of my life, so let’s make this official. Tsumori Chisato, will you marry me?
