The Best Scarf EVER

There’s nothing better than finding something you love rather serendipitously…

Cue this scarf from Urban Outfitters.

Urban Outfitters Oversized Geo Blanket Scarf

A week, or so, ago I was at the one on 14th street and 6th avenue returning a shirt I bought that I later realized was defective. (Not good.  Hint:  Wardrobe Malfunction.)  It was one of the first days of the city being really cold this season, and I was only wearing a leather jacket.

When I entered the store I saw these pretty scarves hanging on a wall.  As we know, extreme discomfort makes humans do irrational things like confessing crimes they never committed, eating an entire pint of cookie dough ice cream at 4 am on a Tuesday, and throwing down $40 on one scarf just because it’s “chilly” outside.

So—on a whim, I decided to exchange my shirt for a black and charcoal one.   And it’s one of the best fashion decisions I’ve ever made.

This Week Social Media Made a Mockery of My Body

What I’m about to say, I’ve been thinking about for awhile, but haven’t had the time to really explore on MO.  However, now that all hell broke loose last week surrounding Calvin Klein’s new underwear campaign featuring “plus size” model Myla Dalbesio, I feel there’s no time more appropriate to come forward and outright say this…

This is my body. Deal with it.

Vince Blanket Sweater, Central Park NYC

Today James and I spent the day at Central Park unwinding after a jam packed weekend full of events.  (Let me tell you, you have not lived until you’ve partied at the Waldorf Astoria and played beer pong on the same table the Big Four held one of their peace talks at.  More of that on my instagram.)

It was such a beautiful fall day, I had to bring my camera and capture it.  I know the leaves will be falling within the next few weeks, and I want to be able to remember the most beautiful time of year when everything gets gray and cold.  I hope you enjoy the photos!

Try These 8 Shopping Tips Now, Thank Me Later.

It’s that time of the year again— Your inbox is probably blowing up with “Veteran’s Day Sale” emails as we speak.

Love sale season or hate it, you can’t deny that it is the best time of the year to get the items you’ve had on your wish list for ridiculously good prices.  However, if you’re anything like me, you prefer staying away from the hedonistic death trap that is the mall anytime between Thanksgiving and December 31st.

In my opinion, online shopping is the easiest way to take care of everyone on your list as well as get the best deals on those special pieces you’ve had your eye on all season.

After all, wouldn’t you rather be warm at home in your pajamas rather than standing outside in freezing temperatures at 5 am?
