  I've been quite naughty about updating my blog with outfits of the day and I apologize! When I'm popping out for just a few hours, I find it's easier to take a photo of my outfit for Instagram. Below are a compilation of the most recent outfits.

Equipment Sloane Crew neck Sweater, Alice+Olivia suede leggings, Celine Trio purse, Tom Ford Nikita sunnies and Charlotte Olympia Bite Me Kitty Vampire flats.  

This Zara faux leather moto jacket is probably one of the most smartest buys I've done this year. The weight and feel is wonderful and identical to real leather. Plus the price isn't too steep; I don't see the point in spending $$$$ for a trendy piece.

Zara faux leather motorcycle jacket, Equipment blouse with sequined birds,  Rag & Bone/Jeans, Christian Louboutin Jimmynetta suede boots in Bronze, Celine Trio purse,  Tom Ford Nikita sunnies.

Speaking of smart buys, I'm in love with this Tibi lace midi skirt. I have found my length in terms of skirts and I'm amassing a small collection of them. 

James Perse tank, Tibi lace midi skirt, Tom Ford Nikita sunnies, Michael Kors gladiator sandals and Saint Laurent Chyc purse.

For our annual Halloween party, I was inspired by Salem, MA and witches. "The Witch" is probably one of the most common Halloween costumes and why wouldn't it be? Who wouldn't want to be a beautiful, powerful and magical being? The costume is normally comprised of the usual suspects: pointy hat, broom and a combination of purple/black in. Some go the traditional route of warty and green while others try to sex it up. I wanted to do something more realistic, an ode to Salem times and the hangings that occurred (I used my hair as a noose) with a bit of modern flair. I don't think the witches of Salem would've worn Christian Louboutin booties but then again, they were known to push the envelope.

     For the past few years, my mom and I have gone to New York and we plan our trip around plays,  museum exhibits and the occasional shopping. This year, we decided to see "Kinky Boots" and "Motown." Both I'd recommend but "Kinky Boots" was the star! Wild, infectious and glitterific. A must see for anyone who wants to dance, laugh and feel empowered! "Motown" had a great story and music. It definitely has that "musical" feel with animated acting and fast pace energy. We also ventured through Central Park and the Met. museum. The normal exhibits and statues are always beautiful to see but I was quite taken by their "Found" photograph exhibit. 
       After New York, we visited Boston. I really wanted to see Salem so we spent one day there and the rest wandering around Charles Street, Newbury Street and the Boston Fine Arts Museum. I have to say, if you're a witches buff like me, Salem is a place to see. The history is both disturbing and interesting. If you go, visit the Witch Museum and Witch memorial for those who perished in the trials. It is somber and eye-opening. During the month of October, everyone who works there is required to dress up. It feels like Halloween every day, dare I say Halloweentown? We capped off our Boston trip with Dita Von Teese's "Strip Strip Hooray!" show at the House of Blues. If "Kinky Boots" was the star, this show was the "moon!" The sets and costumes of Dita's are amazing and the in between acts bring a lot of action to the stage. I especially enjoyed the emcee, Murray Hill. I suggest anyone who's into a unique, sexy time to see her show. Below is a mash-up of my trip photos. Enjoy!
