Sammy B. crop top

This summer I’ve been wearing my vintage Sammy B neon green crop top. It’s perfect for the heat and fashion-forward enough to get you noticed. She makes a lot of fun clothes but pay attention, they sell out fast. Sammy B. did Project Runway and has been churning out exciting fashions ever since. Would you do a crop top?

Sabo Skirt Palm Trees and Neon Shorts for Ty Hunter’s No Basics Brunch

DSC01884Yesterday, I went to the No Basics Brunch hosted by Ty Hunter at Corner Social in Harlem. The music was great and the food made my belly happy. There’s nothing like a good brunch to relax on a summer Saturday.

I wore vintage Sabo Skirt palm tree shorts, a black crop top and neon pumps (similar here). It was a perfect outfit for the near 90 degree weather! Ty Hunter hosted the brunch and I had the opportunity to chat fashion with him. He wore a sequined leopard print top that I just adored! You all know that I love my sequins.

Anyway, I had a great time. Check out the photos below!

Montauk Beach House Pool Party and Milly Resort 2014 Fashion Presentation


Last weekend I got plenty of sun in the nearly 100 degree weather at the Montauk Beach House. Michelle Smith showed her Milly Resort 2014 Collection in a beautiful fashion presentation by the pool, part of a summer-long music and fashion series hosted by the Montauk Beach House. It was an absolutely gorgeous day and last weekend, I was on the beach or by the pool for 80% of the time!

Singer-songwriter Natalia Kills performed and we enjoyed great drinks and music all Saturday afternoon. I just loved the bright, bold colors in the collection, not to mention that much of it looked really comfortable. Artwork seemed to influence Milly as some of the fabric seemed painted like that on the model above. Crop tops kept cropping up in Milly’s Resort 2014 Collection as well. I don’t think they’re going anywhere.



I wore a pink neon Eres itty-bitty bikini along with an exclusive purple hat from couture milliner Ellen Christine’s Spring 2014 Collection. By the way, if you want a couture hat of your own, she’s giving a 10% discount to blog readers. Just call her showroom and mention the blog.

While there I met a few from the Milly team, spotted some great poolside fashion and ran into Cannon Hodge of Bergdorf Goodman. She and her friend were wearing amazing kaftans from Camilla Franks that should be available at Bergdorfs in a few months. She showed me that this particular kaftan could be tied multiple ways for a causal or dressy look. Looks like it will be available soon at BG for about $500 or so.

Milly’s collection isn’t quite available yet but for some of the looks here, check out my Summer is in the Air Collection or Shopbop’s Best of Summer 2013.
