testing iPad app

So I am pretty psyched that I have finally managed to download an app for my blog on this iPad!!! My mom was the one who said, "Jess- I'm sure there is an app you can access in 2 seconds". My reply was, "Mom- you KNOW how pathetic I am in this department.". She went on about how I should "go to my local Apple store in NYC and take a free tutorial". My mom actually did this and was amazed with the capability of her new toy. She is obsessed with the iPad and has it mastered- a million times more than me. I use mine to check email, search ridiculous (in my dreams) real estate and to occasionally read a free book- IN BED. Clearly I am undeserving. I should only be allowed a library card. But tonight- again in bed at my hotel in D.C.- I think I have made a tiny advance in my life with technology. I (hope) i am about to press "save and post" all to tell you that THERE ARE ZERO CHERRY BLOSSOMS left in this district!!! But- I did get some photos of me looking like an American flag all day long. I swear I wore (not on purpose!) a red and white striped dress (Alicia Bell from the store) with a navy blazer. I sent ange a photo of me in front of the White House this morning with the caption "I am a theme dressing LOSER".
Anyway- let's see if this post/app works... ??? Here goes...


Loeffler Randall

before i head out of NYC en route to the cherry blossom explosion in D.C. (we're taking the train- love trains- i find them so romantic!) i had to share my new score that just shipped this morning! i make it no secret that i am completely obsessed with Loeffler Randall boots and shoes. BOOTS especially! i recently splurged on the perfect "Kenton" that i think are great for spring. these guys were out of stock EVERYWHERE- BUT good old eBay came to my rescue. miraculously i found them in my size and brand new. (ange will be so jealous). the color (honey) is in the nude family and will work with just about anything- even my new favorite Sheridan French tunic dresses that are all packed and ready to go.

the lovely Kenton

i'm also coveting these beauties called "Fawn" at Barneys now. kind of awesome, right?

once again- i beg of you- Jessie Randall (how cute is she?! AND she's from WORCESTER) bring back your ready-to-wear collection! i'm dying over here!

Have a great weekend! I'll report back Tuesday!


grocery list: loafers and sequin

i've had a hankering for an old-school pair of penny loafers lately.  i recently tried a pair on- but did not pull the trigger.  i've been seeing SO MANY Stubbs and Wootton ones (and the copied variety) EVERYWHERE- and although i think they are playful-  i'm leaning toward a less animated version.  i remember wearing loafers in college like crazy- but this time around i will steer clear of pairing them with anything plaid.  there is something very un-chic/chic (you follow me?  ya- i'm not sure i do either) about the classic brown leather loafer and i'm itching to wear them with something glam.  like a sequin blazer.  yep.  throw in a beat up pair of jeans, a white tank, and a soft, pastel spring scarf?  i'm feeling it- and i'd totally sport it tonight if i had all the ingredients.  



short is beautiful

speaking of kaftans- the shorter variety is just as cute and may be an easier length for those a little unsure of the to-the-floor look.   the "Beatrice" that i featured yesterday also comes knee length- and i will make sure i have both versions in the shop for you to try! 

i'm also loving the traditional bat wing style below.  i'd contrast all those yummy pinks and style it with  turquoise and gold.  pops of neon (that hat ribbon and bracelet!) make it feel o-so-current.  i'd wear this  look on the street or the beach.
