DAVID KIND Specs

May 13, 2014

Finding the perfect pair of glasses for my face shape has always been sort of a lose-lose struggle. I’m a picky girl! Finding a good middle ground when it comes to a pair of glasses that are trendy but also classic is not an easy task. Not only trendy and classic, but also quality without that designer price. DAV/D K/ND is my latest discovery in the world of fashion-forward eyewear. What’s cool about how DAV/D K/ND works is that it gives you options before making a decision with their try-on-at-home system, complemented by the help of online stylists to guide you. You are sent a box of six styles that are tailored to suit your lifestyle and sense of style. From there, you can feel free to purchase any out of this selection . . . all at amazing prices for their designer quality, of course. You send the box back with your selections noted (the box comes with pre-paid postage), and your frames will be sent to you with your prescription soon afterwards. Super easy. My selection was the Ace style because I liked its wider frame across the front, and the horn-rimmed look. It’s just the right amount of quirky and classic at the same time. What do you guys think of my pic?

Spring Awakening

May 12, 2014

Marc by Marc Jacobs trench from Crossroads Trading Co. East Village, Free People tank, Koral skinny jeans, Modern Vice boots
NYC is shining bright. Cheek to cheek smiles all around 🙂 The weather is still mild enough to call for light layers, and this playful plaid trench fits the bill. The color combination reminds me of a pair of overalls I had when I was around age 5, but the shape is sophisticated enough for me to rock it at age 26. The kitsch of the plaid turns a little punk against black. Surprisingly, I find myself in all black quite often in the springtime. Contrasting with the environment is an easy fashion statement.

Bougainvillea

May 9, 2014

Artisan De Luxe top, Paige white denim boyfriend shorts

Throwback to Palm Springs. Me in front of my favorite type of foliage. Bright and in your face. Pretty, pretty bougainvillea. Sooooo California. Gosh, I miss home. The act of throwing on a white on white on white ensemble seems like the most logical thing to do in the hot, hot desert heat. Anything to help those rays bounce right back at itself. Plus, doesn’t it make the fuchsia just pop out at you even more? The color makes me want to do a little dance. I always find myself being inspired by nature more than anything else. I’m either inspired to imitate it or to just complement it. Literally blooming. Opening up. Taking in the elements that surround you and thriving off its energy. Nature’s lessons can’t be taught in school.

Starry Eyed

May 8, 2014
The city and subways are already starting to feel sweaty again, and memories from last summer are rushing back at a torrential pace. The official season of the summer dress is just around the corner. I remember my very first real summer in NYC, when I was just 15 years old. In the midst of a sticky July. The pavement vibrating with rising heat. Newspapers used as fans rather than the bearer of news. The sound of the air conditioner becoming such a constant hum that it works its way into the music playing from the boom box sitting on the stoop down the street. Those are the NYC summer memories I have. Childish, starry-eyed dreams of play and laughter and then more play that never seem like they will ever see the day it might all cease. Endless summer. That one Alice Cooper song. 
Excited to throw on a dress, not just for the memories, but also for the statement. Diesel’s D-Thara dress from the brand’s Stars and Indigo collection knows exactly how to get noticed. Dressing to dream. Dreaming to dress. This is what this dress tells me. A layer of tulle better suited for ballet class than a stroll through Central Park, and a cluster of denim stars that keep on rising upwards because there is no reason for them to be looking down. 
Summer is the time to keep our heads in the clouds and the stars in our eyes, or in this case, on what we wear.
