Short Week--not feeling fancy at all

This is a short week for me because I am off to Miami to visit my sister and partake in crazy Halloween South Beach activities. YEAH!! Much needed vacation.
Problem is, I need to make it through these next three days before I get there.

Given that, let me insert my caveat for these outfits here by stating up front that I am so not inspired for work outfits this week. I am already picturing myself laying on the beach and enjoying sun, sand and liquor!

How do you get inspired when you feel SO uninspired?

Monday: Grey suede blazer, white sleeveless shirt, navy straight legged slacks, purple suede YSLs, purple necklace

Tuesday: Black pinstripe suit (slacks and vest), taupe silk shirt, beige/pinkish large pearls, black & white spectator pumps

Wednesday: Bleu & white striped long sleeve shirt, black pencil skirt, beige wide belt (will pair with black opaque tights and black suede pumps)

As always, remember to keep it FANCY!

Fall Dressing

Fall is officially here in NYC. As much as I like changing closets (its like a shopping spree without the expense), this time of year is a bit weird to balance the in-between look.

Here are my outfits for the week. Last week was a short week for me, so I gave you guys and my camera a break.

Full week ahead and hopefully, some fancy fashion!

Tell me which is your favorite!

Monday – Purple dress, black chunky bracelets, black patent Pigalles.

Tuesday – Black & White wrap dress, red patent belt, black patent heels

Wednesday – Maroon long sleeve t-shirt, brown tweed mini skirt, maroon tights, brown & white pumps

Thursday – Camel turtleneck, black pants w/ skinny camel belt, camel suede peep toes, wood necklace and chunky bracelets.

Friday – Rust dress, leopard peep toes, beige ethnic jewelry (two necklaces worn as one)

Confident vs. Arrogant

I always hear friends say " I love a Confident man, but I can't stand arrogance!"

Seriously, what's the difference between confident and arrogant?

Is being confident when one carries themselves with a sense of self and arrogance when they are just trying way too hard?

And when does that arrogance cross over into narcissism (Oh, when they start getting annoying)..but arrogance can be annoying, too. And what's the line between arrogance and cockiness?

Are you confused yet? I am...So, while you ponder these life-altering questions: here's my outfits for the week!

My outfits for the Week of 3 October (DRUMROLL!!! apologies for the poor quality…I was snapping while watching the Giants game)..

Mon: Black blazer, a cream mini dress with a ruffled bottom, opaque black tights, worn with a black patent skinny belt OVER the jacket. I have black patent Biancas in the office that I’ll wear these with.

Tuesday: Pumpkin & Cream patterned skirt, Pumpkin blouse, taupe blazer, thick dark brown belt over blazer. I have to figure out what shoes I am going to wear with this outfit because ironically, I don’t own a pair of plain dark brown pumps. I do have a pair of taupe patent pumps (that are close to the blazer ) at the office.

Wednesday: Beige cardigan, Mustard blouse with bow detail, brown patterned skirt (the skirt has a tweedy print, but is light weight wool), skinny beige suede belt, Burberry pumps or Leopard peeptoes –VOTE NOW!!

Thursday: I am still playing with this day’s outfit..I have plans for after work, so I need something sexy, but professionally..and trying to work in my Maggie’s!

Friday: Greige silk shirt (with sleeves rolled up), brownish- grey vest (this fits like a corset when buttoned up), pencil black pants (LOVE ZARA!!), Hot pink peep toes…

I have not pulled accessories yet, but since this week’s outfits are busy, I probably won’t wear much except my black ceramic Rado watch, diamond studs and right hand diamond ring.
