Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street. Fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. -Coco Chanel

If you ask anyone who knows me well, they’ll tell you that I can’t resist a good bargain.

My sister, the one in Paris, introduced me to the wonderful world of Anthropologie when she started working there a few years ago. Since then, I’ve only fallen more in love with everything I see in that store. And even though she’s studying in Paris, I will casually browse through the website, identifying my favorites with a profound sigh to follow, since I can’t afford them without her discount. If she were here, this is what I would want.

Today and tomorrow, the Northeast is getting pounded with more snow, rain, and other silly winter weather. When you’re living in as wet a winter as we’ve been having, you must have proper footwear!Enter Hunter Wellington rain boots.
Hunter is a Scottish company that produces boots of incredible quality, especially rain boots. My favorites are the Original Gloss Tall Boot, mainly because they’re shinier and brighter, and I like obnoxiously colored rain boots. They’re a great way to brighten up a dark, damp day. Don’t forget about the liners to keep your feet warm!Pictures from nordstrom.com

If you read my last post, it’s no secret that I’m going to Paris in April and I’m incredibly excited about it. My fashion-forward sister is studying abroad there, so for the first 12 days of the month, I will be roaming around the city with her. With Paris on the brain, I came up with my dream outfit to wear while wandering around the Louvre, the Jardin des Tuileries, and the other beautiful sites I will see. Hopefully it’ll be warm enough for my pick c’est parfait!Quel est votre costume parfait pour Paris? (roughly translated: what would your perfect Paris outfit be?) Dress and shoes from modcloth.com

Double wammy here. Help the environment by snatching up one of these reusable totes from Forever21. I love them because some are Paris themed, et j’aime Paris! I’ll be visiting my sister who’s studying abroad there in April *squeals of excitement*, AND they’re only $1.50. Can’t ask for a better price than that!The totes also have different themes but all have to do with love, which I think is cute. They’re great for shopping of any kind, especially at the food store, and will make great beach bags when summer comes. How can you pass these up? I know I can’t All photos from forever21.com

Sarah Jessica Parker is debuting her 6th fragrance called SJP NYC. And while her thought process behind creating a new fragrance is nice enough- stylelist.com quoted her saying, “It’s like when they ring the recess bell, that excitement of the beginning if summer”- it’s the dress in her ad that I’m obsessed with.

I’m venturing into New York City tomorrow for drinks with various friends, so what better to wear than a great stand out top matched with wardrobe staples? This slip tank from Free People is one of my favorite shirts and will be paired with a great black blazer from Anthropologie, my favorite pair of Joe’s Jeans and flat black boots. Will post pictures of the whole outfit after the weekend is overPicture from nordstrom.com

Oscar de la Renta presented beautiful jeweled tones in his fall 2010 runway show this week. My favorite one? The emerald green we saw in several of his pieces. Not only is it a beautiful and striking color, but it’s also my birth stone, so double win Be sure to check out the entire collection. Not only did he show the emerald green, but there were also several pieces in fuchsia, deep orange, and cobalt blue. Amazing colors for the fall.All images from nymag.com. The first look is my absolute favorite.
