You either love them or hate them but they are popping up everywhere. So it sucks for you if your not a fan of the warrior sandal considering people will still keep wearing them at least until next season. Fashion icon Betsey Johnson once said, “Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves and, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys they’d just walk around naked at all times.” Betsey hit the nail on the head with this one considering most males see this look and think of a girl lacing up for the movie 300. I on the other hand would love to be labeled a badass Spartan but that’s another story.
The love/hate reaction of the shoe came to my attention yesterday while sitting in a nail salon. The notorious nail artists that talk about you and SWEAR that you cannot comprehend what they are saying. Your right I can’t understand what you are saying, but I can however read body language. One woman says to the other something about my boots and actually goes to touch them. If this does not give me the hint that you are speaking about what I am wearing or me then you must think I am absolutely oblivious. I don’t know how many handbags or shoes I have brought to nail salons over years and watched as they actually tried on or touched and made comments to each other about it. So I guess Betsey was once again right am I dressing for other women? Apparently I have to be dressing for the nail artists. They are going to critique the hell out of me so I should always be looking my best. However, back to my story I watched as one explained to the other that she liked my boots and the lady responded back to her “NO NO TOO HIGH.” Thank god a pedicure is relaxing because playing the role of my Spartan self yesterday I almost wanted to kick her in the face for that comment. And scream, “Tonight we dine in hell.” Yes, 300 is available on demand so I obviously saw it and needed to quote that. That being a little aggressive, but I mean she did have my feet in her hand. So basically the rest of the appointment was just plain awkward.

Love them or hate them but don’t forget to pack your Spartan attitude if wearing them out in public. You may need to protect yourself from the gladiator hater.

I of course LOVE my gladiator sandals from LF Soho that are Sam Edleman’s circus collection.
My shorts were perfect for yesterday’s extremely humid weather found at Oasis Boutique in Montclair, NJ
Tank from Aritzia (extremely comfortable I could literally sleep in that.)
Bag is Prada thanks to my grandma for letting me rock it 900 times.

The most glamorous goddaughter

Meet my goddaughter Emily Lauren. Her hobbies include: dancing, singing, dressing up, and most importantly watching Frozen as many times as the day allows. We put a collage of Polaroids together today to show a couple of her favorite bite-sized purses (that look so much better on her.)
The Diva In Training is wearing: A Chanel Camellia Wallet On Chain and a Prada Saffiano Lux Small Tote. It isn’t easy to be this trendy at three!

WHO THE HECK SAID I CAN’T WEAR WHITE BEFORE MEMORIAL DAY?!

WHO THE HECK SAID I CAN’T WEAR WHITE?

Are you one of the many believers that you can and should only wear white between the times of Memorial Day and Labor Day? Have you heard the whispers of others or have whispered to your friends yourself? “Why the HELL would they be caught dead wearing white before Memorial Day are they for real #Icanteven.”

As the white pants and shorts started flooding the racks at my favorite places to shop the gears started to turn. Who ACTUALLY told me I couldn’t wear white until this day? As a June baby I am easily attracted to white clothing (my birth stone is a pearl) and I am a cancer so I am pretty emotional. This explains why I seem to be almost bipolar about my white clothing purchases. So I can buy it and have to wait to wear it? So I am supposed to hang these perfectly wearable white skinny jeans in my closet and look at them until MDW strikes 12am? Should I purchase the countdown for an event app on my iPhone not for MDW activities rather just how many days, hours, and minutes I have left until Simon says I can wear white?

I began to do my research on what member of the fashion police actually said this. Turns out, no one seems to really know the true culprit of who made this ever lasting rule. There are many different theories of where the rule actually came from. Some believe it started in the early 20th century. Some believe it began in the 1950s and the standards of more people coming into the middle class and trying to fit in. When the upper classes vacationed they were often seen in white attire. I mean I guess I understand that they didn’t exactly wear their crop tops and high waisted ripped shorts in the early 20th century. White seemed to be associated with lighter clothing. So those trying to blend in to society tried to follow these trends as well.

So to all you fashion forward folks breaking the old society norms and wearing your whites before told more power to you. For those of you like myself that still have a hard time breaking the habit petrified that Kathleen Turner from Serial Mom will come out of your closet and take your life for not abiding by the fashion rule it will be ok. Perhaps just take a selfie in your whites alone somewhere behind closed doors. However, POST AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Here I am finally back in the big apple and I couldn’t be more happy. My two roommates and great friends of mine inspired me to get to work with tapping into my creative side and composing this post. It started off as a gloomy day and to no surprise my blankets seemed to be calling my name to stay wrapped up in them watching Netflix all day. However, the love for this blog, the motivation from my true blue babes, and the sun coming out (Vitamin D does wonders) had me up in the streets of SoHo getting a little salty. Climbing on scaffolds (yes I googled the correct name for those things they put up when they are working on parts of the street) was pretty fun. I mean I had tourists snapping pictures of me like I was a real celeb/model/crazy person.

So here are more details of my rainy day that turned rad:

Romper: LF specifically from LF SoHo check that place out bloggers the staff is amazing and they have items worth making the trip for from wherever you might be coming from.

Confession: I hate rompers! I think everyone has a type of clothing they feel they can’t wear because it doesn’t flatter them. My fear of fabric consists of rompers. I love the way they look on everyone else but myself. However, remember how I said the staff at LF SoHo was fabulous. They encouraged me to give this romper a chance because it actually looks like a dress on and to my surprise I loved it!

Jean Jacket: I packed a light jean jacked to throw over the romper incase it got a little chilly later on. Mine was from the clothing company Blank which can be purchased in many different stores and online.

Shoes: My thigh high suede boots are from Stuart Weitzman which can also be purchased in stores or online.

Bag: Prada tote in Cameo

Happy Friday everyone I hope you enjoyed the end of the week post as much as I did!

photo5 I Swear on Prada I Didn't Do It!

Happy Sunday funday fashionistas! Today I chose to wear all black… DL Jeans and a BCBG Suede blazer over an American Apparel onsie. This gives my Alexander Mcqueen silk scarf a chance to really pop! My studded Valentino pumps dress up the skinny jeans paired with an Hermes black leather belt. Matching the hardware of the bag, belt, and shoes helps the look flow together. That precious eye candy on my arm is an emerald green Prada bag.

prep in my step.

Adding a statement necklace can spice up any button down! I got mine from Jcrew!
