i feel like a Lulu

during New York Fashion Week I attended a little soiree for fashion bloggers at the Lulu's Style Studio
in Soho. It was really fun to catch up with some of the members of the
 NYC Fashion Bloggers Meetup Group as well as other bloggers I hadn't seen in a while.
There were also amazing goodies and we all even got to take home a piece of Lulu's merchandise.
I chose this little blue romper.

Romper: Lulu's | Shoes: Charles Jourdan
Hosiery: Opaque Tights | Belt: Thrifted
I actually feel like my name should be Lulu while wearing this perfectly sweet romper.
can't wait to wear it in the summer without the tights.
I also got to pair it with one of my favorite belts that I picked up during a thrifting adventure to the out door brooklyn flea market!

Style Stalker you slay me....

This is the story of the Style Stalker lace up, leather knee patch legging.
There I was on my weekly browse through the Loehmann's on 72nd St.
When all of a sudden I round a rack and see these perfect perfect leggings that I'd seen a few times on a few fabulous bloggers I follow. I knew they were around $200 but hey..this is Loehmanns...
so i check the price tag.
I then gag.
I then take a photo and tweet them.
I then try them on.
I then proceed to buy them......and have never looked back.

Top: Ali and Ro | Leggings: Style Stalker | Shoes: L.A.M.B.
Purse: Mini MAC c/o Rebecca Minkoff | Sunnies: Ray Ban
So yeah pretty much this entire outfit came from Loehmanns. I think this might be the first time I wore an entire ensemble where everything was bought at Loehmanns..everything except this fabulous purse that I won at this event.
I think these leggings are so rocker and they kinda have a lot going on so pairing them with a plain top was a no brainer.
But what was awesome is that they were only
down from the $200 pricetag they are on Style Stalker.
fashion STEELE!

there they were Green and Furry

so there i was..perusing the designer racks at Loehmanns. There was a huge sale going on and I was hoping to score some serious designers for less. Well the $600 Valentino dress in dusted gold
was 50% off but that was out of my price range. I do still need to buy the essentials in life such as groceries.
I was just about to call it a loss when I saw something. Something green and furry.
To my surprise it was a pair of Missoni Shorts with green inside furry lining.
You will NEVER guess I much I got them for either!

Top: Vintage from Finderz Keeperz Boutique | Pleated Cotton Shorts: Missoni via Loehmanns
Boots: Pelle Moda via Loehmanns | Sunnies: Dolce & Gabbana via Loehmanns
Blue Ring: Top Shop
These shorts clocked in at $38!
This has to be the best fashion STEELE so far!
They were marked down and then marked down again and then 50% off.
I scurried so quickly to the dressing room that I think I knocked an old lady over.
They fit.
They are mine.
always and forever....
Missoni Shorts.
I know I'm always getting on my Loehmanns soap box but lets be real here...they are kicking these
chain stores a$$es. They are always the first place I look for amazing deals.

big round peepers

Ummmmmmm hello!
Saw these Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses at Loehmanns and positively could not handle myself.
I waited for 2 weeks before I purchased them because they we well over $100
 (my limit for sunglasses)....but..well...they won.
They were still a fashion STEELE compared to the normal $300 price tag.

Aren't they amazing. The reader frame in white crackel, the oversized only tinted at the top round frames..... I have died and gone to sunglass heaven. Hurry to Loehmanns before they are all gone.
These will definitely be a summer staple for me.

Song: A Real Hero Drive Soundtrack
here's a quick video of this outfit in action


This is my favorite dress is my wardrobe. I love it because it fits me perfectly and is so fun! I wore it here during the summer topped with a bowler hat. I just got these boots at Loehmanns for just $45 fashion STEELE!
Thanks to their awesome winter boot sale these babies are mine! I paired them with my new favorite socks that I wore here duirng New York Fashion Week.
They are super comfortable and make anything frilly outfit a little more edgy.
