A Tale of Two Cities: Part 2.

yes, please.

As February’s unofficial mascot, I tend to take my birthday month for all it’s worth. I started the party with a trip to San Francisco, aka my sister city, for a stay in the lap of luxury! In order to arrive in style with easily interchangeable pieces, this vacay involved some serious outfit preparation time! I tend to OVER pack in general, but I had quite a few events on the agenda ranging from cocktail parties to play dates with my nephews. To focus my inspiration I chose to style stalk my current muse Olivia Palermo, and I took hints from her playfully eclectic-meets-urban sophisticate signature look. I jumped way out of my silhouette comfort zone and raised all hemlines to mini’s (plus black hose of course), and I ditched my military parka in favor of a city sleek leather jacket. My suitcase was maxed with funky flats (maybe even a ‘hook or two!) and fancy daytime layers. In the end my pocket book ached from a couple of impossible to pass up investment pieces… but sometimes the birthday girl just needs to OWN it! Oh snap, Toots!

daytime dazz included.

    Mare this is fabulous! My obsession with gray, textures, luxe fabrics, etc. is totally reflected in this post. I want to see these investment pieces you speak of and decide if I need some of my own – a day time shopping event with you and Thai Basil Rice is needed ASAP!
