Lizzi & Erika’s Look of the Day


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!


Lizzi’s Look of the Day


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.

Last Day of School!


Monday, June 22nd is the end of 6th grade for me. I can’t believe how fast the school year has gone! I’m going to miss everyone and I’m actually sort of disappointed that today is the very last day I will see my friends before the summer.

Anyway, I have absolutely no idea what to wear. I’m out of new clothes, and to make it worse, it’s been the worst weather the past month. Rain. Thunder. Humidity. But, it’s hot.

I have no fresh ideas.

At all.

One bit.

I am uninspired and totally clueless.

I was talking to some of my friends yesterday asking what the heck they were wearing. None of them know, neither do they care. I’m just guessing that they will be wearing their typical preppy Abercrombie & Fitch uniform.

But, ahhh, finally, I have found a classy, in style store to buy clothes that will actually fit my tiny little body. And it’s on the way to the shore… where we might be going tomorrow (if the weather doesn’t turn out bad).

I’ve liked J. Crew for a long time, but was never able to fit into their items. I knew they had a children’s line, but little did I know they had my size. Crewcuts! Cute name for a much-needed, small-sized line of kids that will actually fit me.

Therefore, besides my other needs, I will buy something small that will complete an outfit that I already have. A graphic t-shirt:

(Erika/Mom) School’s out for summer……School’s out for ever……

WB8188~Alice-Cooper-Schools-Out-PostersI don’t remember what I wore on last days of school. I just remember some particularly peculiar first day of school oufits–but I’ll save them for another post. I do remember when Candies were all the rage. My best friend Carla wore a pair on the last day of 11th grade, and used them to fend off some hostile girls who were out to get her for some forgotten reason. They were pretty lethal, too, with those long, wooden heels. Debbie Harry from Blondie made them super famous:


Wow, couldn’t find any. Amazing. Here’s a nice updated version, though. If I were still in school, I’d definitely wear these:
