Lady in Gray

by Jessica Sturdy on February 10, 2014

Happy Monday! (True Story: I just had to look up what day it was.) We’re in the midst of New York Fashion Week and all of the days are blending together at this point. As fun and exhilarating as this week is, it’s kind of starting to take a toll … Early mornings, jam-packed days, lots of parties and get-togethers, late nights, and barely any sleep. Exhausted is an understatement! If you were to sneak a peek at my dark circles, you would probably think that I’ve joined a boxing league. And if you were to take a look at my feet, you might think that I’m pregnant. #SwellingForDays Actually, I feel like my entire body is swollen at this point. Maybe because I’ve been living off of chips & guac for the last few days…

Anyway, enough about my physically fatigued state. Let’s talk my outfit for a second — I wore this monochromatic gray look to work last week before the NYFW madness began. Pink and gray has always been one of my favorite color combinations so I topped off all of the gray with my bubblegum pink coat from J.Crew. I kept my accessories simple… clear, silver, and crystal.

Pucker Up

by Jessica Sturdy on February 6, 2014

It’s hard to believe that we’re already about 1/4 of the way into February, but I have a feeling the rest of the month is going to fly by even faster. New York Fashion Week officially begins today and F/W 2014 looks have already started walking down the runways! [Sorry in advance to my friends & family... Talk to you in a few weeks.] The Olympic games in Sochi also start today and before you know it, February 14th will be here, too. Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, Galentines’ Day (I’ve got a hot date with Hallie & Ashley), or spending some QT with yourself, it’s always more fun to be a little bit festive, no?

When I spotted this lipstick print sweater, I knew it would pair perfectly with my Kate Spade skirt. You know what they say, “Too much of a good thing is… even better.” Do they say that? Who knows, but I do. When I got home and realized that my J.Crew hot pink pumps couldn’t actually match the sweater or skirt more if they tried, it was dubbed a meant to be situation.

To make my look even more literal, I went with punchy pink jewelry from Charming Charlie. A fabulous pair of two-tone earrings, a gorgeous pave link necklace that picks up the pink so well, a set of bracelets that will be the perfect pop of color in my neutral wrist stacks, and these adorable L-O-V-E rings! The best part about each piece? The price.

Superbowl Sweats

by Jessica Sturdy on February 4, 2014

I kept it casual and a little bit sporty for the Super Bowl this year. Since I could have cared less about who won (I mean, I was rooting for the Broncos purely because they have the same colors as the Bears), I stayed neutral — in black. In retrospect, wearing my pajama jeans was probably a bit too man-repelling for the occasion. Live and learn, I suppose. What did you wear for the game?

Grammys 2014: Forgot the Fashion

by Jessica Sturdy on January 30, 2014

Other than a few absolutely amazing performances — Beyonce & Jay-Z (we all know how I feel about it by now), Kendrick Lamar & Imagine Dragons, Mackelmore, and John Legend — I was really underwhelmed by the Grammys this year. The rest of the show kind of bored me… I mean, did they just forget the fashion this year? E! chose the 5 Best Dressed and I have to agree with their picks… These 5 ladies were my favorites, too.

Even if majority of the dresses were a snooze-fest this year, it’s still possible to draw some inspiration from a few of the frocks.

Katy Perry’s whimsical Valentino dress reminded me that I need to pull my ballerina skirt out again. Fashion Week, perhaps? I’m thinking of pairing it with something in the same blush color family for a head-to-toe look like Katy’s.

Subtle Sparkle

by Jessica Sturdy on January 27, 2014

Oh man, you guys. What a weekend! Hallie and I over-served ourselves, per usual. Or actually the bartender at Narcissa over-served us. #WineonWineonWine Sunday was spent brunching, recovering, and crying from laughing at Saturday night’s antics. And then judging live-tweeting the Grammys with Glam. Beyonce and Jay-Z? I died. May or may not have wet dreams about that one. #NotSorry

On a slightly more appropriate note, I’m happy to be ditching my layers and the brutally cold temps for the week! Heading to LA this morning… Follow along on Instagram!

Cap & Camo

by Jessica Sturdy on January 24, 2014

Another day, another baseball cap. Maybe I’m going through a late tomboy phase or something, but I can’t seem to get enough of any of my baseball hats lately. In my girliness’ defense, I did wear this outfit for a more sporty occasion — to the Knicks game last week. (When they actually won.)

All-American

by Jessica Sturdy on January 23, 2014

Kind of freaking out about this post today, guys. Sochi 2014 is just around the corner and as you may have seen on The Today Show this morning, Ralph Lauren unveiled the official Team USA Opening Ceremony Parade uniforms.

Getting Lippy

by Jessica Sturdy on January 22, 2014

Statement Necklace, Polka Dots, Cheetah Lipstick Print Skirt, Moto Booties

Happy Hump Day! I actually wore this outfit twice over the holidays… Once to a little get together with friends (shown here) and again to the PRIV launch party at the Capwell + Co Pop-Up shop. The second time, I switched out the jewelry I’m wearing in these photos for a neon/hematite Capwell + Co. necklace, this ring, and these bracelets. I liked the second time around much better… Photo here.

Also — Call me crazy, but I could have sworn that this skirt was a lip/stick print. Upon googling to find out where you could still buy it, it’s apparently a colorful animal print. Dying to know what it looks like to you…

Winter White

by Jessica Sturdy on January 17, 2014

Award season is here and I couldn’t be happier! For the Golden Globes this past Sunday, a few New York bloggers got together in a suite at The Lexington to watch the show see the dresses. We sipped Moet, ate way too much pizza, and not-so-silently gasped (both in horror and awe) at all of the red carpet fashion. Such a fun night! My favorite looks from the Golden Globes were Margot Robbie, Olivia Wilde, and Kate Beckinsale.

Feeling inspired by Margot Robbie’s simple white Gucci dress with crystal and emerald embellishments (and her emerald Louboutins!), I set out to create a similar look for work this week.
