This outfit was so easy to put together. I actually wore this for an Independence Day get-together-type-deal-thing last week. I wanted a casual, comfortable, and simple outfit to wear. I didn’t want to do the whole red, white, and blue thing… because that’s not my style.






I can never find destroyed/distressed jeans that are made the exact way I want, so I made my own. I found these old Wet Seal jeans in the depths of my closet as I was cleaning it out and I thought I could do something to them… and I did! I took some scissors and went crazy! I cut out the back pockets because I didn’t want the “W” on them and then destroyed them a little lot in the front. (I actually received a lot of compliments when I wore these jeans out last night.)

P.S. I’m so obsessed with that oversized straw clutch! I can fit EVERYTHING in there. I’m on the hunt for another oversized clutch. Any ideas?

What I’m wearing:
Tee with pocket & Earrings- Express
Jeans- Wet Seal (and some DIY magic)
Shoes- Steve Madden
Chain necklace- Thrifted
Charm necklace- H&M
Ruby/diamond necklace- An ex-boyfriend 😉
Leather belt- Thrifted
Oversized straw clutch- Thrifted

As we all know, Sex and the City 2 comes out tomorrow today!!! But I have to be honest… the only reason I’m excited to see the movie is for the fashion. They should’ve stopped at the first one to preserve the greatness of it. Or at least called the new movie Sex and Abu Dhabi by the looks of the trailer. I’ve been a fan of the series for a while, mostly because it highlights fashion and the New York lifestyle… but I digress.

So lately, we’ve all been harassed with the SATC2 teaser trailers (and Mercedes and HP commercials) which includes the amazing new fashion! I think it’s a different kind of fashion this time around. It all seems sexier and of course more mature. All the latest fashion trends are featured in the movie including maxi dresses, harem pants, turbans, and cut out dresses.

One of the styles that I instantly fell in love with just by watching the trailer is Samantha’s Keith Haring for House of Field dress. It is H-O-T! (It’s actually been on the Patricia Field website for a while.)

And of course, we must pay recognition to the numerous Halston Heritage dresses that dominate the movie for some reason. I mean, it’s not like SJP designs for HH. Oh, wait she does!

These are only a few of the dresses that make an appearance in the movie:

I’m très excited to see it! I feel like the clothes and accessories should be credited at the end of the movie instead of the actors! 😉

I was on Net-A-Porter looking at dresses and came across this beautiful Notte by Marchesa fuchsia silk mini dress. (I’ve been in a frilly mood lately.)

The only problem is… I don’t have Marchesa money. But, guess who makes a similar dress? Zac Posen for Target! His new line for Target features a two-piece ruffled dress that comes in red and black/blue. It’s no fuchsia silk… but I’ll take it. Plus, it’s two dresses for one price; it can be worn without the ruffles to create a completely different look. And it’s only $79.99!

Selma Blair looks amazing in the dress at the Zac Posen for Target 24-hour shopping party in NYC.

This is how I would wear the black/blue dress:

Sooooo… let me just confess. I love, love, love getting dressed up and couldn’t imagine my wardrobe without stilettos and makeup and whatnot. But… I don’t see how some people are able to wear makeup every single day!

I usually “put on my face” about 3 days out of the week. I want to be recognized as myself on days when I’m not wearing makeup, so I make sure people see me without it. You know that friend who wears makeup religiously? It’s a scary sight when you see her without it, huh? I don’t want to be that girl.

The main reasons why I do wear makeup are to complement an outfit and to try to look my age (because I look like I’m 5 most of the time). Alternatively, my rationale for not wearing makeup everyday is that it takes too much time to apply and I’m lazy. Putting on makeup takes about 45 minutes from my sleep that I can’t get back. Apart from laziness, I also like to let my skin breathe for a few days.

I think you can still look put together when not wearing cosmetics, even though on most occasions celebrities have demonstrated otherwise. There’s a difference between looking torn-down and fresh-faced. Example: Heidi Klum. She’s in People‘s “Most Beautiful People” issue sporting an au naturel look and I’m loving it!

It looks like going bare has caught on as a profit ploy trend. Jessica Simpson is on the cover of Marie Claire‘s May issue without makeup and Kim Kardashian is in Life & Style makeup-free.

So this outfit I wore last week was totally out of the blue. I went into my closet with the intention of throwing on jeans, a tee, and some Chucks but I just starting grabbing things off of the hanger that I haven’t worn in forever… and I couldn’t stop!

Dress- Heritage 1981
Belt- Nine West
Shoes- Some cheap boutique in Miami last year
Necklace- Vintage (my great grandmother’s)
Flower headband- ? I forgot
Shirt- ? I forgot
