Weekend Rewind: August 14-16th, 2009

Let's start off the weekend recap with what I chose when I woke up,

Friday Morning:

*Black linen a-line shift dress-NY&Co.
*Black kidskin t-strap sandals-Colin Stuart
*Animal print epoxy pendant on chain-Forever 21
Now that's summer time class at my finest, the token

"Little Black Dress"

Although most of my workday dresses are easy like this, and would emit a bit of pulled-togetherness, we all know I'm just really 


And while my personality stays true to that saying, it never hurts to at least look the part of an organized work-woman...that would be why I have all these little dresses you've seen throughout the summer as my work wardrobe staple.

The fabric vendors, buyers, etc that I encounter everyday will never know the real never hurts to pull the wool over their eyes like that.
After work, I treated myself to a mani/pedi as my cuticles were in some serious need of help.  I thought I just got this issue taken care of like two weeks ago.  Whatever I've been up to, maybe all the hand sewing, beading, and pulling out staples from paperwork didn't really help the situation, but I was in desperate need to get myself back in tip-top shape.

As I may or may not have mentioned before, I'm sick of summertime.  While it's still so freakin' hot outside, there's not much you can do in terms of throwing oneself full fledged into FALL when the temps are till up there.  Except in the case of NAILS.
Choosing a nail polish shade in a new Fall color is one way to wave an early goodbye to summer, and usher in the well desired crisper cool days of Autumn.

I was DYING to test out my new Sephora/O.P.I. color:


It's a lovely inky dark FOREST GREEN with a look of almost BLACK.
What can I say, I'm a sucker for anything super dark like this!
And it's a welcome change to everyone's fall favorite: Lincoln Park After Dark.
I rushed home from Mani/Pedi fun, to throw on some new clothes, take care of my ratty hair by opting for a side ponytail and heading out to meet my BF and former roomate at our local haunt.
The bar outfit includes:
*Black cropped fitted blazer-H&M
*Black beaded tank-Express
*Barely boot-cut jeans-Express
*Black heels-Nine West
*Red flower in hair-H&M
And my best accessory ever--yellowing bruise on left bicep from last weekend's bike crash!

The group from Friday also included:

The Former Roomate
(check out his movie site for anything film related, from new releases to the obscure, I personally enjoyed his commentary on "Breakfast at Tiffany's")

Current Roomate (A.K.A. "The BF")


Let's just say I walked all over Brooklyn in this exact outfit.  And my 15 years of high-heel wearing came in handy.

Especially when Mel and I forgot the G train is so short, and had to run half the length of the subway station before the doors slid closed.  I'm sure it was a sight to the other passengers, but the 4-1/2" heels had nothing on me!
*Aqua/Black color-blocked dress-Topshop
*White vinyl sash-American Apparel
*Black sandals-Miss Sixty
*Fuchsia sequined suede tote-Tory Burch

When I say we walked all over, we indeed went far.  
-From 5th Ave in Park Slope, to Atlantic Ave, To Court Street in Carroll Gardens. 
-Then back to Park Slope on the already mentioned G train.
-Then down 7th Ave, turned and walked to 5th Ave., then a few more block until we decided on a restaurant.
Of course there was shopping in between, there were birthday presents for the BFF to be bought.
(yea Amy!  Hope you like the goodies I found)
Oh and a little Beacon's Closet shopping for myself-scored a cute little 70s tunic, a little girl looking vintage dress, and a sweet 80s Jordache top.  All perfect for October weather, another reason I'm soooooo tired of stupid summer already.  C'mon a girl wants to wear her new Fall threads--BADLY!

Now today is Sunday, sadly my weekend is coming to an end.  
Yet, I have not gotten up and dressed for the day.  I have to clean a bit, then I'll prepare myself for an awesome night of bowling at Melody Lanes in Sunset Park.
It's become our Sunday Night Thing!

So while I have no clue what the day has in store for me, or what clothing I may choose, if bowling turns out to be anything like last Sunday, then I have no doubt it will be great:
Last Sunday Bowling Night Attire:
*Turquoise Afternoon Naps (a Cleveland friend's band) t-shirt
*Distressed boyfriend jeans-Uniqlo
*Taupe heels-Urban Outfitters
*Mustaches (see below)-just hilarious!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Your weekend outfits are so cute! I just love the topshop dress and the H&M flower in your hair. I understand about the wearing heels and walking everywhere....I did that all weekend in Chicago (I just can't help it--I love heels!) and I am paying for it now!
