Legally Brunette and Fantastic in Check

Marvellous March,
Yet it feels like my January; my year is just beginning right on the verge of my tax season nonetheless.

IMG_8527I spent 6 of the first 8 weeks out of the country. Ten days of which, was a much-needed baecationso not a completely sad story.

This season check prints are all the rage. Everything from gingham dresses, to check suits and plaid schoolgirl skirts are all an ABSOLUTE wardrobe YES this season. I’ve never really been much of a plaid person. As much as I love prints, it’s never been hot on my list. However now that I’ve tried it, I’m amazed as to how much fun check prints and plaid can be. If you haven’t thought of trying it before, I’ve added so many fun pieces to my closet that I’m sure you are bound to “check-out” sooner or later.

Here’s a little story about the best part while shooting this look on Madison Avenue. All the elegant ladies walking by in their mink and sable coats, toting their Birkins and Ostrich Ralph Lauren Ricky bags were obsessed with my look.IMG_8532More importantly, my fuzzy pink purse. Again proving that it’s not the cost of the outfit but IF you own it!

IMG_8505IMG_8621Girls will always be girls, no matter how old or how sophisticated. Pink, cute, soft and fuzzy translates into an obsession in the typical female mind.

Now here’s a little something extra.

How many of you were obsessed with the image below,

thumbnail_image2of Shionat Turner captured by @missmelanie_  in a perfectly pink Fendi coat at NYFW? This was my fave look from NYFW this past February. It was perfectly pink and also perfectly proportioned considering she was wearing a crop top too.

Meanwhile at Topshop

thumbnail_image3This little darling is currently in store for $150 bucks! Yes under $200 and it’s pretty warm too. Thank me later lovies.


The coat our Fabulous Shionat is wearing retails for a hefty $3570. OUCH!


Definitely a SERIOUS splurge!

IMG_8516If it’s lucky enough to make it to sale this summer, then 60% off may be something to consider for a designer wool coat. However at the current price I will have to gracefully bow out of this purchase. Then again, at $1500 I probably still would not buy it, I could own 10 Topshop coats at the same value ,LOL.  #DontJudgeMe

IMG_8525Here’s  another little secret?  I was actually wearing the back of the skirt on the front the entire time. I just didn’t like the idea of the skirt having a hook in the front. Although, the hook does lay really really flat. I guess I just like a little quirk or madness to my method. Also how do you guys feel about my curly hair? I’m really enoying how easy breezy it is. I’d love to hear your thoughts in my comments.

IMG_8651Happy Sunday and Happy Shopping!
