I am not usually one to be late for the party, but for Reed Krakoff, the creative director of Coach’s new line, I was very tardy.
Reed Krakoff was launched in 2010 and has absolutely blew up, especially this week when the bag that Michelle Obama wore sold out in only a few days.
I personally love this Reed Krakoff bag (right) for the dainty size and the soft beige leather. It has a dreamy, girlie feel to it.
What do you think?

This Saturday, the Greek and the Italian (also known as my roommate and I) are venturing off to Hoboken, NJ to celebrate the annual Hoboken St. Patty’s Day, on a day that isn’t St. Patrick’s Day…seems almost fitting.
So as my roommate and I get ready for tomorrow’s festivities, I began to wonder what to wear to look chic yet laid back. I decided on a loose fitting t-shirt, a pair of tight pants, booties and gold accessories…casual and girly…perfect-o!
What are you planning on wearing for St. Paddy’s Day?

There seemed to be a few trends on the red carpet of the Academy Awards last night;
Ladies in Red
Nude at the Oscars
Lavender also seemed to make quite a showing at the red carpet as well (see below).
I may not be Joan Rivers, but I am going to provide my opinion for the dresses at the Oscars last night…
I absolutely LOVED Mila Kunis’ lavender Elie Saab dress, the lace detail, the sparkling earrings and the loose bun, AMAZING. She knocked it out of the park and would be my choice of best dressed for the night.
Scarlett, Scarlett, Scarlett! Although I hate to say this, because I think she is soooo beautiful in anything she wears, Miss. Johansson’s ensemble was not cutting it for me this awards show. Her hair was cut too short in the back and was too messy and her dress was, for lack of a better term, blah. Too much lingerie look, too little elegance.
Gwyneth Paltrow looked like an Oscar herself in this gorgeous Calvin Kline dress. Although her performance may have been a bit off key, her dress was spot on.
Oh boy…where to begin with Cate Blanchett’s Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci dress. Although I do love the color…what is going on with the beading? It looks like my great-grandmother’s throw pillow, yuck. Nice idea, poor execution.
And now to leave this post off on a high note…
I was sitting on my roommate’s boyfriend’s couch last night, watching the Oscars when all of a sudden the above walks onto the red carpet. I think simultaneously, all of our jaws dropped, and all we could say was “WOW Jennifer Hudson looks great!” Although I would have preferred a little less cleavage…she lost so much weight and this dress hugs all the right curves. Way to go, Jennifer!
Who is wearing your favorite Oscars Dress?
Sorry it has taken me so long to post another entry, but unfortunately life got in the way of my blogging.
With the exception of the past two days (gosh has the weather been B-E-A-UTIFUL in NYC), this winter has definitely thrown a few mighty cold days at us. The cold, however, has not gotten in my way of wearing my shorts and skirts around town. The only problem I have been having is finding tights that are not at all sheer to wear under my short shorts and skirts while keeping the thinness of tights. BINGO. We Love Colors has these great tights that come in 51 different colors. With that many colors you can have the perfect tights to match each and every outfit you have in your closet. These are perfect for under your short shorts or with their neon selection, perfect for that 80’s party your friends want you to go to. Stop make excuses and pick up a pair.
