Lizzi’s Look of the Day

03/12/2010


(Erika/Mom) We think spring is finally here. At least this week. Temperatures actually reached 60 a couple of days and the mood around here is decidedly brighter. Lizzi put together an outfit that celebrates the hint of warmth yet acknowledges that winter is not quite gone.

Lizzi found a great pair of cropped pants a few weeks ago at our new favorite store, Rosana in Princeton. She paired them with a black shirt from Old Navy and ballet flats. Wrapped around her neck is the lucky scarf I actually found on the ground (our first post!) last winter. It’s a gorgeous striped cashmere that I took to the cleaners and has been a soft staple for us all winter long. Her headband was a Christmas gift.

Lizzi (Bennett’s) Look of the Day

02/23/2010



(Erika/Mom)
Any of you Jane Austen fans out there will get my clever title. Lizzi and I dressed up last Saturday to see lots and lots of handwritten letters of Jane Austen at The Morgan Library. We took this shot whilst waiting for the train in Hamilton NJ. (Notice how I used the word whilst? aahhh)

I called the afternoon downright thrilling–Lizzi probably called it something else. She really, really liked the tea afterwards, though, especially the cheese toast. She ate three.

Anyway, Lizzi looked smashing in her black pleated skirt, thin-knit sweater, and moccasin boots. Oh yeah, she’s always reminding me to label everything properly so here goes:

Black skirt: H&M
Patterned thin-knit sweater: Urban Outfitters
Leather jacket: Baby Phat/Macys
Tights: American Apparel
Boots: Urban Outfitters
Bag: TJ Maxx

Lizzi & Erika’s Look of the Day

01/31/2010

Last night, I went to a movie with my dad and sister and decided to dress up a little for no particular movie. We saw “When in Rome” which was very good! I wore a cream ruffled DKNY top from Macy’s, a pair of black jeans from Nordstrom, a pair of brown Steve Madden boots that I recieved for Christmas, and a brown cardigan bought from Nordstrom.

While I was out seeing a movie, Mom went to a country western concert and dinner with some of her girlfriends. She wore a black cardigan with a faux-fur collar bought from Greene Street consignment, a deep pink silk top from Greene Street consignment, a pair of cool dark-wash jeans from H&M, and a pair of black Chinese Laundry fringed boots (which are rather hard to see because they’re black).

Last night was a real fun and fashionable night for both of us!

Here is Lizzi, early on a Thursday morning, with a great outfit for winter. Although the pink skirt is gauzy, it is warmed up with a dark gray sweater that has a 1940s silhouette. Paired with black tights, ballet flats, and a fun floral necklace, Lizzi’s ensemble is feminine and sophisticated. (Shoes from Aldo; tights from Nordstrom; skirt from H&M; sweater from Forever 21; necklace from Macys).

Lizzi’s Look of the Day

This week has been a cold one in New Jersey. We’ve had to tack on a few extra minutes in our morning rush to find gloves, scarves, and to keep the fire going. Lizzi wore this outfit on Tuesday, actually. She is wearing a soft floral dress from Urban Outfitters that we both love. It is cinched with a leather wraparound belt she bought in Paris. Tights are from Old Navy and boots are from Target. Even though the fabric looks springlike, the dress itself is a thick knit and very soft. Cozy, you might say.

Lizzi Look of the Day Oct 23 2009

This was actually yesterday. The NJ weather has been very fine this week so Lizzi is wearing skirts while the sun shines. Her outfit is a Forever 21 skirt that I love–full, in a B/W pattern. Top is a basic magenta T-shirt from Target. Tights in eggplant, shoes bought in Paris :), and a long necklace (borrowed from me) complete the look.

Lizzi's Look of the Day-October 13, 2009(Erika/Mom) Lizzi is very diligent about lining up her clothes the night before. I used to do that, and probably should again. I helped her put this outfit together and we were both pleased with the result. The Club Monaco jacket was something I bought for her last year in NYC. It was a great deal but we had to get it altered. She’s paired this jacket with a fine-knit sweater from Urban Outfitters. Lizzi rolled the cuffs into the jacket for more of a “boyfriend” look.

The Guess jeans from Macys are one of her favorite back-to-school purchases. The color is really beautiful. Paired with studded boots from Target, they complete the look.
