A Knitted Story

I have been a bit obsessed with shoes lately. I mean, I have always love shoes but lately it just gotten really troublesome. Perhaps it’s a new season with all the new inventories tempting me everywhere I turn¬† or the additional shoe space tempting me to add more. Whatever it is, these Ivanka babes with its velvety soft suede, metallic shine and adjustable front crisscross straps was a pair I know will get a ton of love.

I live in the San Francisco bay area and if you ever visit this place you’d know the weather is a bit bi-polar. It can be hot one day in one city and cold in another. Therefore, I have learned to adapt to the unpredictable weather with the use of my trusted cozy knitted friend. The sweater. Whether it is over-sized, tight, long or cropped, it keeps me cozy enough for the cooler nights yet isn’t too thick for the warmer days. Of course, I also love a good sweater that I can throw on over anything.

Speaking of weather,  my heart goes out to everyone who has been affected by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. I cannot imagine how terrifying everything  must be and I just want you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

While the storm has passed, there are still millions without electricity, food, water and shelter. Please watch out for our neighbors as well as older people and single parents with young children who might need help and please, please don’t abandon your pets.

As you can probably guess, I’m a huge fan of all things girly… Pink, check. Pearls, check. Bows, check. Lace, check. Fun, feminine skirts, double checks! I made a similar skirt in green about a month ago, and as if it’s not girly enough, I’ve added more pleats and doubled up the bow. It seems like this love affair is not going to fade anytime soon.

Gosh is it Friday yet? The long awaited 3-day weekend is finally near. Do you have any fun plans? Also I know NYFW is right around the corner and I’m excited to go back to NY. I’ll be there for part of fashion week and to celebrate my girl’s last days as a single lady and where else is best to do that than in NY. The things to do are endless, the people are beautiful, the diversity in cuisine is amazing, and of course we can’t leave out the shopping. If you have the sudden urge to shuffle through clothes at the wee hours in the morning, Forever 21 closes at 2AM. :)

I’ve been meaning to wear these perfectly crochet neon shorts all summer and finally decided to take it out to play before the weather gets cold. Speaking of cold, I feel the air getting a little more crisp and the wind a bit more chilly in the evenings. I don’t know about you but I’ll be in some deep pooh when the weather gets cold. Everything I have seems to be shorts, skirts and more shorts. I guess it’s time to figure out what items I need to invest in for fall… Can’t summer just last forever?

Well at least it’s Friday! Don’t work too hard! :) xo
