Where: Hester Street Fair + Dinner at La Esquina

What: White eyelet dress (Forever21), sandals (Payless), bangles (H&M)

The weather was absolutely gorgeous yesterday!  Not too hot, not too cold… but juuuust right. 

I decided to seize the opportunity and check out the Hester Street Fair that I keep hearing so much about.  It certainly did not disappoint, and I will update you on my purchases and give a full recap in a later post. 

Since the day was so lovely, I went with one of my favorite sundresses. This is definitely up there as one of my top Forever21 purchases.  The construction is great with full support up top, and it’s fully lined—very important for a white dress (unless you enjoy flashing people). It’s also stood up to several washings over the past year or two that I’ve had it.  I think it can easily hold its own against much more expensive dresses that I own.

I don’t know about you, but I love it when I get a quality item at a bargain basement price!

Closet Raid: Halter Ego

Uncategorized

Closet Raid: Halter Ego

Even though the weather’s been up and down, I’ve drawn a line in the sand and officially made the wardrobe switch (leaving out a few cardigans and light jackets, just in case). 

It felt so good to see my cute sandals, springy tops, and especially my beloved halter dresses again.  I can feel the sun on my shoulders already.  

I love weather dressing because it’s so easy—just slip on a dress, grab a cute pair of sandals, put on some sexy shades and GO!

If you’re like me and pressed for space (tiny apartment in the city), you’ve probably come up with some pretty unique solutions for storing extra clothing.  Over the years, I’ve become a pro at cramming lots of stuff into small spaces (without it looking messy, cuz I HATE clutter).  So stay tuned for my video tutorial on how I organize my closet, and some super-sleuthy techniques I use to store my shoes.

When: Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

Where: Hangin’ out in Brooklyn (again)

What: Dress (Forever21), jacket (H&M), shoes (Strawberry)

Originally I had the day all planned out.  I was going to wake up, make some breakfast (pancakes and bacon, YUM!), head to the Hester Street Fair, and later on use my free tickets for the Beast Speedboat Thrill Ride.

Unfortunately, I didn’t wake up until noon (nixing breakfast), and the weather was extremely crappy (ruling out the street fair and most certainly a boat ride).

Instead, I finally dragged myself out of the house at 2pm and headed out to Brooklyn for the second time this weekend to return this truly awful skirt I purchased from Target a while back (not sure what I was thinking) and to chow down on some truly delicious BBQ from The Smoke Joint.  If you’re ever in the neighborhood, you should definitely check it out and try the Black Angus hotdog topped with pulled pork.  YUM-O!

P.S.
It’s Tumblr Tuesday… So if you like what you see on ClosetConfections, help spread the word and recommend me in the Fashion Directory!
