When we think of summer, we think of rompers, well I do and this particular one I feel you ladies will love. Romwe is an online store that will no doubt have you feeling and looking fabulous for the hot months ahead. I know its hard to think that far away, especially with the winter weather in full swing but I hope these pictures can help you ladies envision summer and start planning ahead. So start now, there is nothing worse then missing out on something special, especially a new piece to add to your summer wardrobe. I can’t wait to wear this in New York this summer, maybe with a cute strappy heel but for now in Mexico’s cobbled streets, flats are my preferred footwear. The balancing act on cobbles is never a fun moment to have and there really is no need for it. Asos always have a good range of footwear, I have been wearing sandals every summer for as long as I can remember. My favorite designs would have to be River Island, who are continually creating fabulous footwear with an extensive selection to choose from. If your not fully convinced then Kurt Geiger surely will. For accessories, one designer I feel you need to keep an eye on every season not just summer is Joie, an amazing American brand that I discovered while living in New York. This flower bag along with many other Joie purchases are one of my favorite pieces for the summer time. Being that its in the midst of winter its nice to think ahead and maybe even plan a trip away to escape this polar vortex that we are having in New York, why wait. Visit www.romwe.com to find some of the most amazing summer pieces.
So this weekend I wore my amazing new spring jacket that I purchased at Family Jewel Vintage down in Chelsea on 23rd street between 7th and 6th Ave. I love vintage shopping simply because its one of a kind, you are not buying a garment that is massed produced and is seen in every magazine. Owning vintage pieces is basically owning a garment that has a story and mystery behind it. Lucky for girls like myself I find this alone has put a few of my friends off shopping for vintage clothing. Most faults they find are the same as there always questioning ‘Were has it been?’ or that it’s to worn. I have to be honest its only in recent years that I’ve started to venture into wearing vibrant colors. There was a stage and I think were all guilty of it was the ever growing wardrobe of black ensembles, thankful now I have moved on from.
Colors can be intimating for many but for me I love to add abit of vibrancy to my wardrobe especially around these months when we are consumed with constant blacks and beiges. Festive season is over and although its still very cold in New York doesn’t mean we cannot embrace spring. When I found this jacket a lot of my friends that didn’t particular like it and nearly put me off it. Its important to take friends advice into consideration at times but if you have a picture in your head of how your going to wear something Get it!! You will only regret it later. Its important to remember that one persons taste is different to another’s so take the risk to stand out. I love embellishments and really wanted to find a clutch bag that was heavily beaded to add more texture and vibrancy to the overall look. Luckily for me that soon changed when I found this amazing clutch bag in a shop called ‘Joie’ www.joie.com. It was double luck to be truthful, not only did I discover this chic boutique but also my bag was ordinal 250 dollars down to a whopping 37 dollars BBBAARGIN. So I was sold in a second obliviously. This entire look was just under 100 dollars so it pays to shop around but of course buy vintage. I hope I’ve convinced even one of you ladies that previously had doubts, you really are missing out.
