Out and about in the LES in my coral colored dress from LF! (I was told the color suits me).
Last week I went to LF Stores annual sale. I am talking about 60% off their ENTIRE merchandise. Brands like Jeffrey Campbell, Sam Edelman, Steve Madden and Dolce Vita can be found there and YES it is 60% off too! Hurry though, because once they clear out their merchandise…. well you know, that’s it! It’s done! The dress was originally $178 and I got it for about $60. I also purchased a pair of J. Campbell shoes and a mullet skirt. I love LF! They have stores in New York in Cobble Hill-Brooklyn, SoHo-Manhattan and Chelsea-Manhattan.
No boring silver or gold expected accessories.. And this Aldo necklace is anything but boring.
Close up of accessories from Aldo Stores. Necklace is called Midgette and the clutch is called Lanosa. Click items below to take you to purchase the items. Necklace was part of the 2 for 1 deals and is on sale for $20. The clutch is $40. It is spacious, modern and gorge!
Zara had their semi-annual sale and I was all in their racks and stocked up! I purchased this Peplum skirt for $40, among a few other items. We had a girls night out and saw Magic Mike and chowed down at Negrils in the West Village section of NYC. So it only made sense to dress somewhere in between casual and a notch or two below dressy. Throwing on my comfy wedges instead of stilletos and a cotton tank to pair with the skirt created that comfy look and feel that I was going for without looking like out of place and overdone.
I have a guest Blogger! Please welcome Chris Classiq. He will be working on a Men’s section for the blog and I am happy to have him on board. Keeping true to THE FASHION CLONES, he will be bringing deals, steals, high-end and vintage finds for all you men.
We recently went out to the Chanel exhibit in SoHo, NYC and here is what we wore:

We found this gate with yellow rope on Wooster Street and Spring Street for anyone looking for a cool place to shoot.
Firstly, I am a big believer wearing shoes I love on the regular. These Steve Madden shoes have got to be the most comfortable shoes I have ever purchased! Walked in them all day, yes I did! I could have worn this fab tulip dress from Zara with red shoes and be typical but wanted to go for a cute stepford wife meets Michelle Obama.. . This dress cost $100 but you can find similar dresses at ASOS (one of my favorite stores) for less. This one below is on sale for $28.00
For my girlfriend/cousin’s birthday (we have known each other since we were 11), I decided to throw her a bash at Vodou Bar. Well, to be honest it wasnt supposed to be a bash, more low key than anything, but it turned out a lot bigger and actually A LOT of fun! As usual, drinks and food were on point. The music was great and the crowd was nice and ready to party. Most importantly, Shaniece (the birthday girl) had a great time!
I had alot of options that night to wear, but decided on shorts. I am not much of a shorts kind of girl until recent, but I couldnt pass up the tuxedo shorts. So I said ehhh why not.. I think it turned out cute.
