Fashion Magic

Rachel Zoe top, 7 For All Mankind jeans, BCBGeneration sandals

Here is my new favorite outfit!  I love this Rachel Zoe top so much – I bought it in white too!  And adding spandex to jeans is the most brilliant concept the fashion world has ever known.  These 7 For All Mankind cropped ankle jeans are so spectacular.  They totally move with me like a second skin.  My most recent purchase.  Lately, every time I buy something, I say to myself – okay, after this you don’t really need anything else.  LOL!  Needless to say, that thought is fleeting.

I also recently acquired these BCBGMaxAzria silk velvet cargo pants in teal – one of the major colors this season.  They are amazing in every way!  Soft, elastic waist, cropped so that they did not need hemming… OMG!  Love!!! ❤

And the Sloan fit pant from Banana Republic – I bought them in both garnet and charcoal.  The red ones were on some ridiculous sale because they were the last pair and happened to be in my size.  I think they ended up being only $20!

Here are the rest of my #ootd pics since school resumed.  Some are weekend shots.  I really love all my Rachel Zoe tops.  The fabrication is top notch.  I buy them on-line as no stores in Syracuse, New York carry her.  Same goes for Trina Turk.  Actually, shopping on-line is the way I prefer acquiring my wardrobe.  Sometimes I try on BCBG and other stuff while at Lord & Taylor.  I spent a couple hours in there trying on jeans last week so that I could ascertain my size and the best fit.  Turns out I am a standard size 2 across the board in Hudson, Joe’s Jeans and 7 For All Mankind (0 in Banana and XS or XXS in BCBG depending on the cut).  Yes!!!!!  And…I love it when something comes in the mail and it is a perfect fit.  It is just like magic!  Because, of course, fashion is magical.

I’m finally getting back to blogging now that I’m in summer mode.  I will post soon about more new encaustic paintings, once I get around to mounting them onto the chalk boards.  I have a dozen new heart paintings and a dozen abstracted baseball ones that I am loving.  They are currently residing on my kitchen table – and on the surrounding counter space.  No current plans for exhibiting them as of yet.

I still have artwork up at Kimberly’s Salon on James Street in Eastwood and at Syracuse Yoga down the street on Thompson Road.  Not sure what is up next for me, but that makes the journey so special.  I made the paintings for a purpose; just not sure what that purpose is as of yet, lol.

If I can get my friends to put up with doing the photography, I will try to post #ootd pics on Instagram during July and August.  Although I am usually the one who takes our obligatory selfie when we are all out and about, I am not a fan of those selfie pics where the fashion blogger cuts off her own head or shoots a foreshortened image from above.  By not a fan, I mean I really don’t want to do that.  So…we’ll see.

Here are some outfits from the past few weeks.  Kinda fell off the wagon with posting them here.  We were having technical difficulties with the lighting in the classroom.  I had to double edit the pics to adjust the brightness, so there are inconsistencies – I guess I will hold to that excuse.  We take dozens of pics in a short time and I swear I am always changing out the pose, but for some reason I like this crossed legged thing-a-ma-bob that I have been doing a lot.  It feels like the most natural and most comfortable position for me especially when I am wearing a dress or skirt.  My go-to vogue.  My work colleague Brad calls it my stance.

My new favorite things – Halston Heritage and everything by Rachel Zoe!  OMG, I love her!  I now own five pieces – two dresses and three tops.  I am on her site literally every day.  I want more!

I’ve discovered something called the Amazon wish list.  It is a public list of things I desire.  All I have to do is dream while on-line shopping and perhaps these things will actually materialize in my mailbox on the condition that fairy godmothers/Santa Claus/tooth fairy/Easter bunny/patron saints of fashion do exist.  That is wishful thinking at its finest.  How cool is this?
