New York is an ever changing place. From it’s inception New York and has been changing and evolving, be it good or bad it does not stay the same. And New York’s most recent facelift in downtown Brooklyn is the newly minted shopping mecca—City Point. My friend Angela and I decided to check it out this past Saturday, and it is, as one of my coworkers would describe it—a millennial paradise. Take that as you will it was fun place to shop and stroll about. Stay tuned for a video on that.

It was quite hot and humid so I reached for a maxi dress almost the only thing I can wear when it is super hot. I picked this one up at The Loft, I love their maxi dresses as they are made from a very light weight wrinkle free material. This one has a wonderful floral pattern and I also picked up a pair of trousers in the same pattern.

I love the color and it is made from a water resistant material that kind of looks like leather but not quite

The sunnies I picked up at Forever 21 they look a lot like the pair I lost from Quay Australia—still bitter about that. No wear near the quality of Quay Australia but they will do in a pinch. And the bag is also from Forever 21. I do not generally shop in Forever 21 but I popped in to one the other day on my lunch break as it was super hot and I needed an excuse to get out of the sun.

I spied this over-sized shopper and was surprised at how expensive it looked. I love the color and it is made from a water resistant material that kind of looks like leather but not quite. It is huge, I was able to fit my DLSR camera, an extra lens and my new Canon G7X vlogging camera in it, along with all the usual things I keep in a bag. Perfect for a day out shooting. Looking chic while getting things done—priceless.

Today’s post is a mix of old and new where I mixed older pieces with some newer ones. This weekend I headed to a town on Long Island called Huntington and met up with the blogger behind the blog Shy Biker. Huntington is a lovely town on Long Island which is quite different from the town where I grew up. It has more of west coast city vibe to it with subtle hills and lots of boutiques, cafes and restaurants, and it is super pedestrian friendly which is nothing like the more working class south west shore, which is all about strip malls and driving.

It is a nice town to escape to and I had wonderful time meeting up with Ralph who treated my friend and I to a wonderful lunch at a local Indian Fusion restaurant. After lunch my friend and I shopped a bit and I scored a BCBG cross body for $39.00, and you can be sure this lovely gem will be making an appearance on the blog in the not too distant future. I was going to wear a pair of jeans with an over-printed star pattern and a striped button down blouse. But it was a bit too warm for that so I opted for this sheer midi skirt from & Other Stories and this super comfy tee from GAP. Perfect for the warmer weather—not to clingy.

I then added this acid washed denim jacket from I Love H81 and the ankle boots from Crown Vintage and a slouchy boho bag from Sondra Roberts

I added this J Crew necklace which I wrote about last week. I then added this acid washed denim jacket from I Love H81 and the ankle boots from Crown Vintage and a slouchy boho bag from Sondra Roberts. The aviator sunnies are from Loft. I usually do not like this style on me but these frames are small so they work on my face.

We managed to get this shoot in before it started to pour. I wanted to also shoot some video but the weather was just not cooperating. Oh well. I hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as I did mine.

Confessions of a Bargainista and Sales at Ann Tayor & Loft

Fashion - alimackin@gmail.com - March 27, 2017

Yes I am sticking to my black ban—so far. Granted it is only March but so far so good. Color and patterns, yes please! Prada, Miu Miu, Gucci?

Yes I am sticking to my black ban—so far. Granted it is only March but so far so good. Color and patterns, yes please! Prada, Miu Miu, Gucci? Nope, these fun and super on trend pieces are from Ann Taylor  and the The Loft. I can’t wait to wear them. I can layer them, mix and match them and pair them with other patterns. Such a fun way to dress and quite a step away from donning a head to toe all black ensemble.

I also purchased a pair of chartreuse colored trousers and a fabulous non-body con mixed patterned spring coat.  I am more then ready for spring and to step out in a plethora of sans black looks. And the best part? Everything was on sale. The dress is from Loft and was %40 off the lowest price, and the trousers and vest are from Ann Taylor which were also %40 off the lowest price. So in the end I ended up paying %60-%70 off for all of these pieces. The sale is still going strong, so if you are interested pop in to your local Ann Taylor or Loft or you can head to AnnTaylor.com and Loft.com. And happy shopping!

A Loft Dress and a day in the Hamptons

It’s summer, I live in NY, the sun is shinning so where to go? Why the Hampton’s of course. If there is one thing you can say about Long Island—after California and Florida it has the best beaches in the US. And I am lucky enough to live within driving distance of this much sought after get away destination.

This past Saturday a friend and I set out for the Hamptons with our goal being to make it to south Hampton but unfortunately we only made as far as West Hampton due to the over whelming traffic, it was bumper to bumper traffic for miles upon miles. We finally bailed and settled for West Hampton. But all was not lost, we found a semi-private beach that was refreshingly not crowded. With it’s wide sandy beaches and ocean views it was the perfect place to catch some rays and relax. After hectic busy week working in NYC a day like this is exactly what the doctor ordered.

They predicted rain for Saturday but there was not a rain drop in sight and it turned out to be a beautiful day. With our original plan to head to  South Hampton or Sag Harbor to shop in town rerouted because of traffic jams, and with the blazing sun overhead we ended up at the beach. I was not wearing a bathing suit as I had not expected to be at the beach, instead I chose to wear this floral maxi dress I picked up at The Loft a few weeks ago. This Loft dress was originally $79.99 and had been marked down to $69.99 and then they were having a 50% off the lowest price sale (and it is still going on) so I ended up paying $35.00 for this versatile frock.

With an impromptu photo shoot on the beach I didn’t have time to worry about my dress

I have worn it to the office, out for drinks with friends and now—to the beach. What I love best about this dress besides the fun floral pattern and how comfortable it is, is that it does not wrinkle. I was literally rolling around in the sand and there was not a wrinkle to be had. With an impromptu photo shoot on the beach I didn’t have time to worry about my dress. As I struggled to find my inner sex kitten getting sand in my hair, and pretty much any other place you could think of, this dress soldiered on and remained as fresh looking as did when I first put it on that morning. Seriously how cool is it to not have to worry about rumpled wrinkled clothes? Cool right?
