Vogue

Not much needs to be said other than:

(2) I have waited a year

I heart Vogue – and especially the September issue!!

Wanted Wednesday

Ok, so firstly EPIC FAIL!
Yes this weeks Wanted Wednesday is in fact being posted on Thursday. Sorry about that. Super busy bee this week…

Finally though, here we go.
This weeks Wanted Wednesday is this smokin’ pair of Helmut Lang leather pants.

Because honestly – who out there wouldn’t want these flattering, cropped, tight fitting, HOT pants that cost only a weeks rent??? No really – who??

Hope to see you in your leather.

Romance NYC Style

Romance is not dead – nor should it be.
Just take a look around Central Park. The couple on a picnic, the first date happening at the Boat House, the husband rowing his wife under the Bow Bridge.

Diane von Furstenberg coral creation adds its own romantic touch to this city escape.
The cut, colour, flowing fabric, the detail of the subtle pleating.

Wanted Wednesday

So here we are – Wanted Wednesday #2.

There may have been some controversy over WW #1 – specifically around the segment launching with a cuff and not my poison. Namely, shoes.
Fear not my friends – for this weeks wanted item is SHOES!

Christian Louboutin perfection – the Pigalle Spikes in Grenadine.
Pink, spiked and a 12cm (approx. 5 inch) heel.

Florals and corals

Summertime should not preclude you from wearing black.
Au contraire – you just need to make it feel more summery with some florals, or a splash of colour!

My favourite colour this season has to be anything in the coral family. I am finding myself drawn to anything coral spotted on the rack.
So pretty and feminine.

So here is my version of a summertime “black” outfit.

Love this Alex Perry top with a beautiful big floral pattern, an interesting vest-like shape at the top and flattering pleats.

Short Shorts

Forget the LBD (ok jokes) – but, what about the LITTLE BLACK SHORTS?

I love them in spring, I love them in summer.
I love them casual, i love them dressy.
I love them on The Hart Of Dixie and the resulting disruption they cause to the town of Bluebell.

This past Sunday, I channeled my inner Zoe Hart and took my favourite little black shorts out to Brooklyn.
Teamed up with a summery colour blocked tank – and my new Manolo Blahniks (their first excursion!!)

Pumps – Manolo Blahnik Kandita-Mod Sandal

While some perceive them to be casual, I disagree and believe you can make the little black short a dressy statement.

Bring out the legs for summer.

Ev & The City – Charleston Edition

I am pretty much ready to run away to the South!
After a few days, I have fallen deeply in love with Charleston.

DSC_0289 DSC_0240 DSC_0264 DSC_0272 DSC_0295 DSC_0306

The food (yes I tried grits, and no they are not for me!), the cute buildings running along cobblestone streets, the history, markets, horse drawn carriages…
Added to this, it was perfect warm weather every day.
Ohhh so dreamy – leaving me in a pastel frame of mind.

Under the boardwalk…

I was lucky enough to spend the Memorial Day holiday weekend in the South, by the beach.
The Isle of Palms, just twenty minutes out of Charleston, was beautiful. Long beaches, perfect weather – an amazing escape.

My tropic inspired dress comes courtesy of H&M – and their conscious collection.
So now you can feel good about a cute dress, at an incredible price, WHILE doing something better for the environment. Win, win and win.

Teamed up with some cute spring pumps, and my new venture the BIG HAT!
I have always been terrified of the large brimmed hat, but finally made the leap. Thoughts?
