BirkenSTOP





Summertime in NYC houses some of the most stylish of airy ensembles; but It can also be home to some of the most unfortunate outfits this side of the East River. As if the stench of body odor lingering from a cut-off Tee on the L train wasn't enough, i've had the displeasure of seeing every female in this city rocking some Birkenstocks. I'm sorry, but I just can't board this train. When I think of Birkenstocks, all I imagine is some string bean, flower child in denim bell bottoms and a Free People crop top. Don't get me wrong, I love some tie-dye blankets and patchouli scented oils, but Birkenstocks would be my final choice in "fashionable" footwear.

But, my worst nightmare?  Imagine this—the Birkencroc. 
Thats right. A horrifying hybrid of ultimate comfort and sheer terror. Here are a list of things I would rather wear than a Birkencroc.

-Chipped nail polish
-Denim underwear
-Wet socks
-Old Navy flip flops

...you get the point.

New York City!



To say that i've neglected this blog is an understatement. My lack of inspiration and tedious daily routine was eating me alive; so I did what any girl would do. I sold everything I owned and traded in my suburban lifestyle for a less than spacious apartment in New York City.

You're Out Of My League

(Christian Louboutin- Very Riche Nude Strass heels. Approximately $4,000)

It's one of those late nights where I cant help but be distracted by the urge to write about something. With a nasty case of writers block plaguing me for the last few days, I found myself seeking solace in the television. One would think with hundreds of channels, I could find something to entertain myself but there are only so many re-runs of Millionaire Matchmaker a girl can watch. That's when I came across the comedy flick, "She's Out Of My League" and it had me thinking about things that are, well, out of my league. You can scan pages of magazines and browse the sales section of Blue Fly, but with a very average household income, how many people can really justify purchasing a pair of $2,000 shoes that are on the current path to trendiness? Don't get me wrong, I love a good trend, no matter how ridiculous it may be, but is my refusal due to future un-trendy circumstances or just cause I can't technically afford it? Given my current income, I can justify buying a pair of classic Louboutin's in say, nude or black, by telling myself that they will always be in style. Now, what about the classic Louboutin that's strassed in rhinestones? Would you buy them if you could, or are they just essentially out of your league?

Sweatshirt Chic


This Fall/Winter I've been living in sweatshirts. Be it American Apparel, DIY bejeweled or in this case, a five dollar Wal-Mart find. It is just way to cold to sport anything other.
