urban sighting

I was literally on a waiting list for what seemed like eternity to get these Zara jeans. I love them. I practically live in them.  The denim is very soft and stretchy, with perfect rips. I have to admit I have paired them with Birkenstocks and White Ts more than anything, but this look is so badass.

Also worth mentioning, the Boutique 9 pumps I am wearing are the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I scored them last year at a Nordstrom Rack along with a slightly darker shade here. I have a friend who buys two of most things and I cringe at the idea, but these pumps I would definitely not mind having multiples of, in every color.

Hope you’re having a fabulous week!

My mom has been persuading me for some time to try High Rise Jeans as she felt they’d complement my body. I was reluctant, as I believed they only flatter the long legs, thigh gap kinda gal.

A few weeks ago I was inspecting the Denim table at the Zara store and I thought I’d give these High Rises a chance.

Last weekend I met my twin Frankie of Style Through My Eyes for drinks on Rush St. We ended up bar/club hopping until the wee hours of the morning after one of my best friends joined us. It was totally spontaneous, and SO MUCH FUN!

This dress is a millennial thing, know what I mean?

FEMME FATALE

I was delighted to find my favorite red lipstick featured in a recent NYMAG article as one of The 50 Best Cult and Classic Lip Shades of All Time. I love a bold lip. Red is daring, seductive, confident, and fitting of a Femme Fatale.
