That Bogart influence

To my own surprise, my today's outfit has a slight 40-s feel: I guess all those Humphrey Bogart movies that I have been watching the whole winter are finally starting to sink in. I do realize that to pin that style down, I would need, among other things, a hat and a pair of gloves (and they were also very pro-small purses back in the 40-s) but as I said, the outfit has a feeling rather than complete resemblance.

The bag (by Maddalena Marconi) arrived yesterday; luckily, I forgot to put it away so this morning, I didn't have this "last accessory" dilemma as I so often do.

Mood plaid

With the gloomy weather for like the third day in a row, I felt a strong need to brighten it up. I really had to do that, ASAP, before my mood reached the below zero level! For an immediate effect, red was chosen; besides, it was a nice opportunity to try and combine it with bordo - something I always wanted to do but never actually did. Until today.
Also, I just received these absolutely insane plaid tights ( by Ellen Tracy) from barenecessities and it seems like I need more of those!

Rainy Sunday

It's rather gloomy out there today, one of those days when you have to keep drinking coffee all day long just to stay barely awake.

Wearing Stewart Weitzman boots (denim + studs + cowboy look + the whole shebang); I bought these at Bluefly a couple years ago but so far, have rarely got a chance to wear. I still can't figure them out! But I have to admit, they are extremely comfortable.

Coat - Zara
Dress - Victoria Secret

You're in the army now!

It seems like military trend is planting itself firmly in the world of fashion this upcoming season and I'm so glad that it is! Even if I've never had anything camouflage in my wardrobe (the closest approximation being a summer tote that was part of some promotion at Neiman last year), I always loved a 19th century-inspired cropped military jacket - with embroidery, of course! It makes an istantly fab outfit if combined with tight pants, tall boots or even classic pumps. So many things to try (on)!
My take on military trend (leather pants from Blank, jacket from La Rock - both bought at Cusp, belt from Nanni and my long-loved booties from Goffredo Fantini)

Antonio Banderas mood: Z vor Zappos!

Blanc Noir, or spring is taking a detour again

It's cold again! Gee, I just can't believe this weather. But on the bright side, I just received a new shearling (Blanc Noir) from Overstock - that site is amazing, totally recommend to anyone.
P.S. I was on the phone most of the time while shooting so it somehow made its way into some of the pictures. Wazen't planned, though!

Keep experimenting with our new camera. And my almost-new leather leggings (ordered two more pairs from Bluefly but UPS combined with USPS... gee, I just hope I will get my package one day, maybe even this week).

I bought the cardigan from La Redoute. Too bad they closed their US operations - they always had cool stuff and sales. The boots are Rene Caovilla and the top is also La Redoute (almost vintage) - I totally forgot that I even had it until today when I found it in the drawer. The belt is my favourite Nanni.

The fashionista dog

My fiancee got this T-shirt a while ago from one of their clients. Apparently, the guys wanted to make a large gesture and gifted accordingly - all the T-shirts ranged from XLarge to XXLarge.
Here, Babay (171lb) is modeling it (for a small renumeration).

What, you never seen a dog in a T-shirt before?!

Warm days, Central Park, Manhattan

Guys, thank you all so much for your comments, it's always such a pleasure to read them!
The latest: we finally got a better camera and took it to a test shoot to Central Park right away. It was 65F yesterday  - a true summer day -and just a few days ago, the appropriate outfit for going outside included a serious sweater and a winter coat!

Eventually, it got a bit chilly. Wearing a faux fur cardigan from Overstock (they always have great stuff if you have time to browse the site)

Roger Vivier sandals. Love'em!
