Cyclist

Yesterday, after much humming and hawing, I purchased a bike. It’s a lovely cream-colored Linus Dutchi 3-speed, perfect for traipsing about the city. I was deciding between the Linus and the Public J Bike (which I believe has been replaced by the C bike), but ended up with the Linus because they began offering a new “Small” size that was ultimately a better fit for my height.  Now I’m looking forward to leaving my car parked and enjoying the summer and fall days on my bike!

Alexander Wang Resort 2012

Sorry for so many collection posts, but I couldn’t save this for later. The moment I saw this headline on vogue (click to see entire collection), I was in love. Seriously, my closet would love to marry Alexander Wang’s collection, and they would be satisfied for life.

Athleticism and structure combined with Wang’s signature edgy and wearable style make for a brilliant collection. It was SO difficult to pick my favorites, but here they are:

Look for Less: J Crew Sandals

Cathay and I both agree. The J Crew sandals for this season are amazing, lust-worthy, and …expensive.

I mean, just look at them! Perfect nude, tan, and brown shades of luscious leather. An updated version of the “gladiator” sandal. The right number of buckles and details, so as not to look overdone or tacky. Wide, bold, masculine straps to complement Spring and Summer trends of flowy tops and floral dresses.

assorted images can be found at Jcrew.com

If you’re like me, you probably agree that shelling out 100-300 bucks is unrealistic (AKA never gonna happen). So I decided to find some similar looks that are guilt-free:

Delias. Blowfish Casita Sandal, $44.50

Delias. Wanted Picnic Cut-Out Sandal, $44.50

Aldo Litecky Sandals, $34.98

Aldo Sanie Sandals, $20

Topshop Hot Tan Strappy Sandals, £22


Loving these Zara color blocking sandals!

Too bad they don’t have more pictures of the color I like! So, if you may, please imagine these beauties:

Zara Three Tone Flat Sandals, $49.90

In this color scheme: (which I prefer!)
