Post Thanksgiving day food coma I'm a little weary of "baring all" - which is why I know I can turn to my commando tights to save the day. I'm telling you guys, I will swear by these tights up and down that they are the best stockings out there. Not only are they the perfect shade of black opaque, but the tummy control top shows no lines and hides all. If you don't believe me, go try them yourself. Hope everyone has a happy digest.

Just because it's cold outside, doesn't mean you can't wear a dress. And, just because you wear a dress doesn't mean it has to look girly. I'm all about changing the expected norm in fashion - and creating a look that people respond to as "wow I would not have thought to put that together."
It's always a nice getaway when venturing into Brooklyn for whatever excuse comes my way. This time it was a visit to the Nifty Thrifty HQ that took me on the L train to Bedford Avenue - the avenue of the oh-so-cool and oh-so-Brooklyn. I had the chance to check out the thousands of pounds worth of vintage clothing Nifty Thrifty has in their archive, and you bet there's an awesome collaboration coming up with us two in the near future. BTW - if you haven't yet, sign up here. I topped of my day with a salted caramel macaroon from an oh-so-brooklyn-cafe Toby's Estate.
Boy do I have something special for you today. Introducing the official launch of a Brooklyn based company (just as it should be), Nifty Thrifty (click to sign up). So here's the breakdown - it's specially curated vintage collections where each piece is better than the next. This entire outfit I'm wearing is from their first collection that you can find online. Big things in store for this company guys... On a side note, I just wanted to point out that sometimes I do wear vintage fur pieces that have either been gifted or handed down to me, and I never mean to offend anyone by doing so. I will definitely try to stick to faux when it comes to any clothing because I too love animals (and have two dogs of my own) but, please note that I respect everyone who is against this.
