I picked up this floral body suit yesterday and just knew I had to style it up for spring. There is something so 80's about the onesie but you all know I'm a sucker for anything floral print. 
We Love Colors so generously sent me these lovely ankle socks which I've been wearing non-stop with open-toed shoes.  I have to admit I was a bit hesitant to try this trend but now I'm on board 100%.  The blueish grey hue perfectly ties into the little floral details on the onesie.

in the pink

A few shots I found inspiring for Spring.  Beautiful airy neutrals look modern paired with pastel hair and neon pops of makeup.  I'm especially fond of the jaw highlight.  I think it's a defining feature of the face yet tends to be overlooked.

Last night we attended as well as djed Artvoice's (our local alternative newspaper) Best of Buffalo awards.  Shock & Awe started off the evening with the jams before everyones attention was diverted to the playoff hockey game (sports yawn).  There was plenty of free food courtesy of "the best" restaurants in the area. 


 I picked up this little number for $13.90.  It's well worth the cheap change as I see it transitioning from Spring to Summer.  I added a bit of the left over pink dye to my hair in hopes of enhancing the fuschia color.

My lovely dj partner and friend Jessa threw a delicious dinner party last Friday night.  The evening was filled with friends, wine, amazing food, board games, pool, and ping pong.  Jessa and her sister Julia really outdid themselves and put together a feast fit for a royal court.  The menu consisted of steamed muscles with fennel and capers, grilled Moroccan shrimp screwers, grilled zucchini stuffed with roasted red peppers and goat cheese, home made kettle chips, pizzettas, plus various spreads and dips.  I'm lucky to be surrounded by wonderful friends who enjoy the simple things in life, and have exquisite taste in cuisine. 

Runway 3.0



Runway 3.0 is upon us.  Only 5 more days and counting.  For those of you who aren't familiar, Runway is a yearly fashion event that showcases local designers (and ADAM LIPPES!), as well as student designers who are completing their degree at Buffalo State College.  It's headed by the lovely Erin Habes who has been working nonstop to make this the largest and boldest show to date.  
Tickets are selling fast so make sure to purchase yours soon.  
Jessa and I have been working hard to get the playlist finalized. 
OH AND don't forget about the 
Official After Party held at Soundlab 110 Pearl St at 11PM. 
Thanks again to Brandon Davis of Block Club Magazine for designing these beautiful fliers.

(forever 21 leather jacket, acid wash jeans, and wedge, h&m fringe bag)
This was the outfit I wore on Saturday to the Grand Opening of the revamped Krudmart store.  I decided to recreate the look yesterday because atmospheric lighting in the packed storefront made quality photos just about impossible.  These are the shoes I purchased last week at Forever 21.  They're super comfortable and remind me of several different Jeffrey Campbell heels rolled into one. I like the softness of the lace paired with the cropped leather jacket. Pastels and creams always look fresh for early spring.

Last Friday the friends and I hit the Grand Opening of Second Chic, a new boutique in the Elmwood Village dedicated to recycling "gently-used" clothing (something we desperately needed downtown).  My wonderful friend Lulu (check out her blog here) is a driving force behind this endeavor, and the party was a great way to combine wine, shopping for vintage clothing and seeing friends. I myself still need to drop off a bag (or two of clothing) and look forward to seeing what new items I'll find for trade.

(vintage blouse & dress, h&m scarf, nine west wedge, vintage & forever 21 jewelry)


I'm enjoying the look of soft neutrals and pastels for the transition of seasons.  Gold accents mixed with the various tones of beige is refreshing. Going ahead with the sock & open-toe'd sandal trend I paired my new Nine West wedges with knee socks, and was pleased with the result.  I'm hoping for more sun-filled days and grill parties after work.

I wore this outfit for weekly date night.  This time we chose to dine at Kuni's which is a delicious sushi restaurant in the village.  The meal was nothing short of spectacular, as to be expected.  We finished our date by buzzed (killer Saki!) shopping at Target and purchasing nightstand for our bedroom (we had previously been using a wall shelf, and a dilapidated vintage table).  I bought these shoes during our Valentine's jaunt in Toronto.  I think the subtle mint accents pair nicely with the neutrals and breathe a touch of spring into this casual outfit.

I've been wearing these thrifted Levis non-stop.  They are perfectly worn with the most amazing fit and have already become my staple (and signature) piece for the Spring.  This beaut of a jacket I snagged at H&M while in Toronto a few months back.  I've been hiding it in the back of my closet, but now that spring (and party season) is upon us, I had to break it out.
