Accidentally Audrey

9th July 2014

Today’s look was accidentally Audrey-Esque. I donned black and white stripes (per usual) and a red lip (of course) and spent a good 30 minutes on my hair (unheard of for this bun-loving-bedhead) before walking my thirty minute morning commute through the sauna that is currently New York City. Upon arriving to my office, I glanced in the mirror to see that my well orchestrated locks had somehow been magically replaced with a wild, frizzy fro — thanks New York. I didn’t panic,  but quickly tossed up my mess of a mane into a undone bun with bird’s-nest inspired tendencies. After using up my to “emergency” bobbies, I resulted to a few paperclips that hopefully no one will notice, or miss from the office viola … Accidentally Audrey.

The big shades and bow ring were the final touches, plus my low block heel sandals (that I simply wore because they are one of the few pairs I can do a whole twelve hour day in) were subtle nods to the film princess … I hope Miss Hepburn would approve

This look is actually surprisingly simple for me and I honestly wasn’t planning on posting it (I usually like to try and teach something in my outfits posts like “if you have a serious stripe obsession [hands up] here’s how to wear a striped skirt with a striped top” or “are you afraid of pencil skirts? me too but let’s conquer our fear together with this flattering piece“). But I had some time to kill between work and this amazing Capwell & Co event I attended last night, so naturally we had to fill it with a highline photoshoot, because what else could Paris and I possibly do with a free hour in NYC.
After meeting up with blogger babe Daisy O (who had borrowed these babies for the 4th) I switched into some Capwell & Co bracelets for the event. Oh, this event (sigh)….  it was one of the most beautiful blogger gatherings I have ever been honored to attend! Our hostesses with the mostess, Jessica planned a brilliant rooftop soiree held at the Maritime Hotel. I shortly met up with more blogger gal pals Elana and Melanie. Mel somehow convinced me to sip an Amaretto Cran with her, although I am strictly a “i’ll have half of a martini” kind of gal … so if I sound a bit off in this post or make some dramatic grammar error, blame Mel & the Amaretto (Just kidding … well kind of).

Anyways, we had a ball, stuffed our faces and left blinged out in capwell & co .. you know usual blogger business. Check out more of the fun on instagram by searching #capwellatsunset  & shop my Capwell favorites here:

Black Sandals via Nordies (similar here, here & love these bow ones)
What do you think of Capwell & Co? Are you a brand fan or just learning about it now? I love discovering new jewelry companies and have quickly caught the Capwell & Co fever… so I’m sure this won’t be the last you’ll see from this beautiful brand. XO

31st December 2012

welcome back to the third && final holiday style stalking post! today i’m taking on the queen of class, audrey hepburn && shaking up her b&w style with my own takes on the a timeless look.

for my look i got inspired by audrey’s timeless stripes, whether wearing them on a dress or a little basic tee, no-one wore stripes quite like audrey!
I started by piling on the pattern (surprise, surprise) by mixing polka dots && stripes!
this dress is perfect for a holiday party or summer soiree, but not quite right for a brisk day. to make it work for december, i layered a turtleneck underneath && paired with thick tights to keep me toast!
 Since I couldn’t do a homage to audrey without pearls on pearls on pearls, I layered three of my favorite necklaces && bedazzled with a bow brooch. 
need your own statement pearl necklace? check out this tutorial here!
&& I couldn’t be audrey without a little bit of leopard…
oh, && of course a red lip is required…
before you go…
bree of uptown tulips will also be posting an audrey-esque on her blog, so be sure to stop by uptown tulips to see how she channels audrey.
&& remember…

today I was a little inspired…
by the one and only audrey hepburn“my look is attainable. women can look like audrey hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying the large sunglasses and the little sleeveless dresses” 
– audrey hepburn

Everything old is new again, where black, bows, and big glasses never go out of style.
My newest kate spade celina dress oozes Audrey-ness. Adding the big glasses, bright lips and piles of pearls helped seal the deal. 
Although I like color, a two-toned look can also make a stylish statement. The creme and black throughout creates a chic and classic vibe while the massive amounts of pearls and girlie over-the-top accessories keep it flirty.
