What I Wore on a Windy Day

While walking around Williamsburg on a particularly windy day, I was caught off guard by a gust of wind...resulting in petticoats all aflutter! It's gotten chillier since these photos were taken, but I'm happy to showcase me new(ish) dress from Goodwill. A mere $8, this dress fits my laid-back 50's style to a T. I have a deep fondness for these kind of vintage house dresses that can be dressed up or down. As long as I can eat a mountain of brunch pancakes and still feel comfy and stylish, I'm all for it. 
Oh my...

My Life in Instagram

My short, but sweet rained out stoop sale
A peek at a photo shoot styled by Jaclyn Bethany that I recently helped out with. 

Jason brought me flowers and fancy tea for our one-year. <3
I took care of this adorable pooch for a couple days before Sandy hit. 
I finally made crowns! I'm off to the dollar store right now to make a possibly sparkly crown for my birthday in two weeks!
Hope you all are having a wonderful week! 

What I Wore To Central Park

These photos were taken the day before Sandy hit. My boyfriend and I wanted to to head to Central Park before all the autumn leaves were blown away. My look is all about the cat shirt, but I like how the collar from Lonely as a Cloud brings the fall elements together. I'm also really into victory curls these days. In a way, it feels like cheating on my love for the 50's, but this easy hair-do makes me feel fancy and polished.

Today, I'm happy to see the sun shine as the snowy Nor'easter comes to an end. This storm-weathered city has really held it's own and my heart swells in admiration for the people working so hard to get this city back to normal. I also couldn't be prouder and more excited for our country as Barack Obama enters his second term. Yay!

On a side note, I'm currently looking for a full-time gig. I have experience in a plethora of things so if anyone has leads on something I might be into, let me know at kuriegasreyes@gmail.com. 

Thanks guys! xo

Fantasy Fall Wishlist

November is my favorite time of the year, from pumpkin-spice everything to the gluttony of Thanksgiving and, of course, my birthday! When it comes to the holiday season, I love buying presents for others (and for myself!), so I thought I'd put together a collection of some of my favorite items of the moment, many from adorable Etsy shops I recommend exploring. Hopefully they can give you ideas for Christmas shopping to come!

My first items are these fanciful, handmade pastel oxfords. All the pastels are completely covetable, but I'm really digging the pink ones. I haven't found replacement pink shoes since my sad saddle shoe days. The lavender are definitely a close second though. Best of all, they are seriously well-priced for handmade leather shoes!

Rabbit Tote by Fill it With Diamonds, $40, by Fillwithdiamonds
How cute is this rabbit tote?!
Cat-Eye Polaroid Sunglasses, $99.74
Polaroid makes sunglasses?! Yep! Who knew?

Recommended by Vixen Vintage, these petticoats look oh so soft. All my petticoats are the itchy, scrunchy kind and this one seems so luxurious. I was a little confused which inch length I'd use the most though.
I am officially obsessed with illustrations by Caitlin Shearer. Her style is fantastically twee, girly and adorable. Here are some of my favorites...Chocolate Milkshake , Print, $15
Tea Party, Print, $15
This would fit right into my home!
 Sunday Stroll Silk Scarf, $50
I have a similar style scarf of pretty ladies or I would've convinced myself to buy this long ago.
This Biscuits Dress is probably my favorite item of the Caitlin Shearer bunch. I got really excited when I thought it came in my size and then realized Australian sizes are completely different/smaller than U.S. sizes. Ooh well.. seriously, how cute is it though?
Issue 15 of Lula Magazine
I have yet to snag this issue!
How amazing does this book sound? Perfect for my new tea obsession!

Bass shoes galore! 
I'm constantly in love with every Bass/Bass Loves Rachel Antonoff shoe that appears, but I curse myself for not getting these polka dot saddle shoes when I could!

These two lovelies are still available though!

Picasso Cats Scarf by leahgoren, $96
Cat tote by Cat Vs. Human, $20
It's a cat..in a bowtie! What's not to love?

LMC Nebula Skirt by ShadowplayNYC, $138
This is such amazing fabric. 
Of course it reminds me of my friend Nacho's fantastic galaxy photos.

Galaxy Scarf by ShadowplayNYC, $85
Cat pillow by Jessicaleighjones, $15
Ok..i know..I like cat stuff way too much..the odd thing is that I'm a dog person!
Bow Tie by flappergirl, $18
I love girl scout style, I really do.
This too is one of those things I wish came in my size, but it's ballet chic none the less. Anyone have any suggestions where to find a plus-size tulle skirt?
Vintage Slingback Open-toe Ferragamos from vintagegogirl, $62
I love Ferragamo sling-backs! They are oddly more comfortable than the regular heel. 
I hear that I need to own these volumes. 
Oh Bill. Even during Sandy, there you were
Lastly, I just realized these Keds I'm into are totally men's shoes. No fair!
