Daily Covet: Ralph Lauren Wool Cashmere Poncho

Let’s face it, ponchos have come a long way since their vintage sisters made their way onto the style scene.

This Ralph Lauren Wool – keyword Cashmere – poncho looks so cozy and warm and perfect for fall.

I’d pair it with knee boots and jeans or or a wool mini skirt. I’d totally wear it to the pumpkin patch with my kiddos or to run errands in high style. It’s such an easy piece, I could throw it on to get the mail or pick the kids up from school. And it comes in gray and olive – the first I have loved always and the second is my new favorite neutral.

Like most things I love, it’d go almost anywhere!

Killer Heels In Brooklyn

alkgrace:

I just had to share this cool post from one of my favorite blogs. And you know how I adore chaussures?!

Originally posted on what we LIKE NYC:

Yesterday saw the opening of Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe at the Brooklyn Museum.  With over 160 beautifully designed pairs of high-heels, the show is a trip through every iconic shoe imaginable alongside many important historical pairs, dating back as far as the seventeenth century.

There’s the famous purple Vivienne Westwood sky-high-heeled shoes that had Naomi Campbell trip most graciously on the runway during the designer’s show in the 90s, a pair of silver Chanel boots with a pearl sole that might be the most beautiful pair of boots we’ve ever seen, as well as recent designs such as the fabulous Prada lipstick heels. For die-hard fans of more recent designs, there’s just about every pair of infamous Louboutin shoes, Céline fur pumps from last season and United Nude’s Lady Gaga boots.

Brooklyn Museum. 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, NY 11238. Tel: 718 638 5000. On Show until…

Daily Covet: J.Crew Barrett Suede Ankle Boot

Is it fall yet? I mean, no one loves summer more than I do, but if we can’t be sleeping in, playing at the pool or going on vacation – bring on the cooler temps already!

I’d also like to pull out my fall wardrobe and start picking out some nice investment pieces to get me through the year, if not the next few. These J.Crew Barrett suede ankle boots are totally gorgeous and the fact that they come in navy (black and grey too!) was super exciting for me.

Navy is the new black, after all! (Follow me and get shopping info on lilblacksweats on Polyvore.com)

Daily Covet: Prabal Gurung Bow Front Top

To say my tastes in fashion are eclectic is an understatement. Schizophrenic might be a better term.

If you don’t believe me, take a gander at my last post about boyfriend jeans.

But not a lot of choices could be less boy and more girly-girl than this ice blue bow front top from Prabal Gurung (a fave for sure!) It showed up in a Harper’s Bazaar article about boob-minimizing tops – their words, not mine. While I would like a little minimizing from time to time, it’s the asymmetry and pseudo-ruching that I love. The peplum with skinny black pants or a pencil skirt would be gorge on just about any body type.

And Prabal Gurung is just one in a long list of designers you’ll be seeing ice blue from this fall/winter. Doesn’t hurt that blue happens to be one of my most favorite colors. I love all shades – navy to the palest shade of blue, so it’s no wonder this top jumped off the page at me.

Now, how to finance it… hmmm.

Daily Covet: Rag & Bone Dre in Bradford Jeans

It’s time for jeans. New Jeans.

Last year, I was two days out from giving birth and still in the “little black sweats” phase of post-pregnancy. I wasn’t even thinking about wearing my old jeans… much less close to fitting into them.

This year, I’m still a few pounds away, but hey it’s only July (almost August.) But there is an end in sight and to celebrate I’d love to invest in a hot, new pair of I’ll-look-fabulous-most-days-in-these-jeans jeans.

I have a few pairs of fab jeans already… a really, lovely worn-in-perfectly pair of Joe’s boot-cut jeans. I have two great pairs of dark skinny jeans. And I also have a great pair of low rise, frayed jeans, which are the original Seven for All Mankind when they weren’t made in China… buuuut, I might be a little further from wearing those.

I do not, however, own a cool pair of boyfriend jeans with the perfect fade. That’s why these Rag & Bone jeans are perfect for this girl on the hunt for jeans!

But honestly, jean schmean, I’d take just about anything Rag & Bone has to offer! #newfavedesigner
