What I’m Wearing
* Vintage cropped floral blazer ….seen here
* American Apparel oversized tank top
* J Brand black skinny jeans
* Guess buckle heels
* Vintage 80′s chain necklace {grandma’s} …seen here
* Silver hearts and hoops earrings …Farmer’s Market
* Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses ..New! ….at Bloomingdales …I got them in blue
* Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag

…a few things

* I realized a bit too late that my tank may look better tucked in/or half tucked in
…next time.

* I cannot stop listening to Lady Gaga “Paper Gangsta” …it’s so effing good I cannot stand it!

* I am having a love affair with my front french braid today which I’ve never done before …however, my hair is still wet so it’s got a little frizz goin’ on but I don’t really mind. I have to admit that I got the idea last night while watching Don’t Mess with the Zohan …lol …the scene where his love interest gives him an updated version of the hair book. The woman on the cover has a front braid but her hair is down and wavy …I just ran with that.

    That braid is fierce! I was just thinking about how to do an “outy” french braid this morning – never done it. Your outfit is fierce, too… luvin’ the blue and black combo!

    Love it! You look gorgeous! And that necklace… it gives me the strong urge to go cut up one of my old shirts and start DIYing… I don’t know, braiding strips of fabric?

    See what you do to us?! lol

    You know, I was really sad when SITC ended because I couldn’t get my fix of Carrie Bradshaw style that was so rockin’ but I’m never brave enough to attempt…
    You, my lady, are my new Carrie Bradshaw fix!

    The tank top looks fine the way it is. Love the blazer and granny’s necklace. You crack me up, where you got the braid idea from. You’re so lucky to have such long hair. xo

    Your hair is amazing. I am quite obsessed with it. Of course, this would never be possible to pull off with my hair because it’s too short and too fine. But goddamn! I wouldn’t be surprised if pretty soon there were celebrities copying your look!
