Lusting for Leather

A little bit of leather goes a long way. Don't you agree?

I have to say, I'm kind of obsessed with this dress. It's the perfect little black dress to wear to work or an event.I love the chain neckline detail too. This little added touch is great because you don't have to worry about adding any jewelry.

Pink Camels

Happy Fourth of July to all my fellow Americans! I'm being a bit of a rebel and going away from the typical red, white, and blue look and wearing some pink camels today. Does that make me any less patriotic? You be the judge of that.

I just had a fantastic four day weekend! I wandered around one of my favorite areas of Brooklyn, watched lots of soccer, hung out with friends, brought Rocko to the new dog park in the neighborhood a few times, and ate the best fried chicken I have ever had (my husband agrees too!). All in all I can't complain!

Tonight I'll probably watch the Macy's fireworks from my apartment window. I'm going to stay home and give Rocko extra cuddles as fireworks scare him a ton. Poor guy!

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend!

Puffy Parka

I hope you all in the northeast are staying warm and surviving this insane blizzard we are having. I seriously didn't know if we'd get the amounts they were calling for. But when they got on the news and started increasing the total amounts for the area I realized this storm meant business. The NYC area was calling for 20-30 inches and tons of blowing and drifting snow. I'm not really sure how much is currently out there...but it is a lot. And the snow drifts are nothing to laugh about. I saw people on my block in waist deep snow. All I can say is that the city better get this mess cleaned up by the time we go to work on Monday morning...or I don't know how I'll get there. Ugh!!!

I'm in the need of a new winter coat, and the blizzard outside my window has me doing some serious online browsing. Here are some of my current favorite puffy parkas.
