when tomboy style asks you to do a Q&A, you do a Q&A.

OMG SHE'S TALKING about me.

My Q&A with Tomboy Style is finally up and #confession: I was so nervous! Will people think I'm interesting? Am I interesting? I guess I'm interesting? But when you hear your own stories told, you never sound as interesting as someone else and their new stories. Right? 

Sigh, What do you think? Click to read the full Q&A!

tomboy style: j brand red skinnies + ben sherman men's chambray shirt

REMEMBER THAT TIME I called out the blog Tomboy Style for being one of my style inspirations? Well, I also tweeted that ish and guess m-fing what? Lizzie Garrett, author of Tomboy Style, reached out to lil' ol' me to be featured on the blog for a Q&A session! Whaaaaa? Me? You think I'm interesting? Cool. Giggle.

my fashion's night out: drinks at ben sherman, chats w/coco rocha and the man repeller and my favorite jumpsuit

I'M GOING TO just come out and say this: MY FNO WAS THE BEST. It wasn't glamorous, it wasn't crazypartyscene, but it was the best. I peeked in Ben Sherman first (do you like what I bought?) and weaved my way through the crazySOHOcrowds to stop in TopShop.

And then I died. Literally. Actually figuratively. But I 'EEKED' so loud when COCO ROCHA walked in, I thought my heart was going to explode. I was so nervous! I ran up and blurted, "Coco! Can you take a pic with me!?" And OhMyG, she said yes! Sigh. Beautiful and an inspiring voice in the fashion industry, she's truly an icon.
Off to REALM Boutique to catch a glimpse of one of my favorite style bloggers, Leandra of The Man Repeller. And she was so sweet! And she's hilarious. So, read her blog. DO IT! It makes me smile thiiiiiis big:
Meeting two of my personal fashion icons has lit a fire under this girl's cutie tushie. I want big things for myself, BIG THINGS. More on that later...

Anywayyyy, do you like my jumpsuit!? It's the jumpsuit, the myth, the legend from my ABOUT section. Yep, the one I stalked for 3 days and finally found in West Yorkshire, UK. These pics are darkish so I imagine I'll shoot this number again as I don't feel they do THE JUMPSUIT justice. But for now, isn't it the bestestbestest?
And I don't have to tell you how mfing incredible these shoes are. YOU KNOW.

fashion's night out: what i'm wearing?

THE QUESTION MARK is meant to draw attention to the fact that I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I'M WEARING TONIGHT.

You know when you build this perfect outfit in your brain and it's just the perfectest most bestest outfit ever, of all time? And then you excitedly try it on and it's... womp.womp.womp? Yeah, I just did that. DAMNIT.

So, back to square one. Luckily I have a few more hours before I have to decide. Oh, what's that? There, off in the distance? A torn apart closet with TornadoJaKenna wreaking havoc in the middle? Sigh.

Here's what I wore last year:
You've seen these Michael Kors platforms and the TopShop shirt before, they're definitely go-to staples. And shout out to my boos, Marilyn and Lynx!

Anyway, hopefully I'll look as cute this year! Wish me luck :-)

your new favorite fall color: anything eggplant, wine or chocolate

IT ALL STARTED with a rainy stroll past the Rag & Bone store on Houston + Elizabeth (so hot for those jeans right now) and ended with an obsessive internet scour for awesomelycoloredeverything. Must have delicious color trends... 

I don't think it's fair to have the description for Essie's Velvet Voyage be "an intense chocolate amethyst." I now want to eat the nail polish. #oops #dangerous


SIDEBAR: OhMyG Fashion's Night Out is tomorrow! I'm making a list and checking it twice: what I'm wearing and where I'm going. Full details tomorrow!

how to: choose labor day weekend attire

I LOVE ME some brightly colored denim. Since Labor Day marks the beginning of my FAVORITE SEASON EVER, I can't imagine this trend fading during Autumn (ohpleaseohpleaseohplease don't go!), so I'm riding this train as long as I can.

I'm also slowly checking these items off my to-do-need-to-wear-immediately list. I've got the TopShop top already and I'm coming for you next SUNNIES!

I'M ALSO TRYING to wear all of my peep-toes before it gets too damn cold outside and I have to cover up my pedi with tights. These booties are puurrrrrrfect :-)

And loving the long sleeve dress for Autumn. I still get to show leg, but I'm not absolutely freezing in the chilly air!

Sidebar: Must have fox wrap ring. MUST HAVE.
