Ombre! and other stuff...

While searching for something to wear for the video intro, I tried on these at Macy's Herald Square, second floor Broadway side.

INC
Why do I prefer ombre ($59) that goes from light on top to dark on bottom, instead of dark on top to light on bottom? And why do I dislike grinding black peppercorns so much? Unsolved mysteries of my universe. The cuffed shorts are $59, and the purple top is DKNY ($49).














More DKNY
blue knit top ($79), and butterfly gold top ($69) w/faded peg legs ($69), that I really liked at first because of the back pockets...














until I tried on these ABS jeans which so knocked me out I almost asked if Macy's had layaway (they are $189). For one of the first times, I didn't think that almost $200 was ridiculous pricey for jeans. Perfect fit, super long, really soft, and they make me look really good even though they are a size too small. The blue Plastic Island origami top is cute, too ($108).

More mind-boggling ABS
this pencil denim skirt ($155) REALLY wanted to be put on layaway, too (seriously, I have to find out if this still exists). It's sexy, sexy, sexy. Orange, ruffle one-shoulder top is BCBGeneration ($72), and pretty but if your clam stash is low, put the 72 towards the ABS.















Ben Sherman
polka dot blouse (on sale for $47.40) with the hot little ABS number, looking very 1950's, and the YSL homage, $139.
















Macy's Herald Square,
151 W. 34th btwn Broadway & 7th

The faded cropped jeans fit you perfectly.

All these outfits look wonderful on you- I love the faded blue jeans on you too! Hope you don't mind me asking-what is layaway, I've not heard that phrase before!!

CoutureCarrie said...

Ombre that goes light on top to dark on bottom is better because it's slimming, so right on!! Loving the polka dot blouse and pencil skirt look too!

Kira Fashion said...

The Seeker said...

Dear, I love how you look in the polka dot blouse and pencil skirt.
You look sooooo sexy, and pretty.

I also prefer ombre that does from light top to dark bottom :)

I agree with you, flying just ain't what it used to be...

though i've heard white's not what you're supposed to wear when you're on camera, i sure do love that option that fades to blue. so fresh!

fashion herald said...

Lovely finds at DKNY! I ne3ed to check out the store asap.

Imelda Matt said...

va va voom, who knew Ben Sherman could be so sexay!!!!

Francis Girard said...

Why do I shiver with disgust when I see a stearing wheel lock? The universe is a weird place I tell you. Ben Sherman still surprises me, I once thought he could only do a stripe shirt. xf

bowerbird said...

Adore the polkadot blouse. You look completely stunning as usual

INSPIRE THE STARLING said...

I'm loving Ombre at the moment (on women, not myself :P) and it's soooo on trend for this spring/summer. The 1950's polka dot is also lush, and gives you a unique look. I'd head for things like those to make you look that little bit different from the rest of the crowd! Cx

enc said...

Alright, this is just plain not fair: how do you manage to make EVERY look look so good?!

fashion herald said...

you know, enc, if you give me one more nice compliment today, i'm going to have to trade in my husband for you. Or maybe you can give him compliment lessons?

In Yr Fshn said...

My fave is the polka dot and pencil skirt combo. I hope you are heading back for it, because it looks amazing on you!

Always In Style said...

First: I want that origami top -- so chic. Second, that Ben Sherman 50s outfit is DIVINE. Get it. Now.
