Hello friends, I hope Sandy passed you by safely! The hurricane largey spared the DC area; my neighborhood didn't lose power or got any major wind damage (my roof sprung a leak but we quickly fixed that).

Onto the outfit, today I wore a professional taboo: the cropped top. I thought there was no approapriate way to make one work for the lab (office) but that's nothing I couldn't solve with a pair of high waisted pants and a blazer. I wouldn't normally be so adamant about wearing a defective top to work but Alexander Wang knows what he's doing with a tee - it feels like a second skin so once I put it on in the morning there was no way I'd take it off.

Have a great weekend! And yes, it rained all over my bag just as I started with the photos. Poo.

  1. I'm glad that you're safe. My sister is in DC and had a power outage for a short while.

    Love the handbag.

    Making a top work for two environments is always a score.

  2. Glad to hear you are safe after Sandy's storm. I am not a crop top girl, but high waisted pants is a great idea! Heather

  3. I'm glad that Sandy bypassed your area! I love the bright red coat (and still drool at the sight of your beautiful bag) - the saturated colors of fall are so lovely. Sometimes, I wish it could be fall all year :)
