I stumbled across this coat over at ebay fashion outlet a few weeks ago.. not sure if it was the fear of the cold weather I was about to travel back to that week, or because it was a ebay find, that made me click it home asap..

the fact that it was an ebay listing, my senses sent signals to my brain to automatically click on the 'buy it now' button, but my point here is that the glory of the outlet is that they have large stocks on most of the items.

A little bit of promotion is hopefully allowed, as I happen to be involved with the new launch of ebay fashion outlet! Remember this behind the scenes post? I actually saw the glossy printed look-book just a few days ago and dare I say that I am even on the cover? crazy cool, more on that later!

I wanted to pretend that it was chilly by layering but who am I kidding, it was over 80 degrees in California and I was secretly burning up inside. Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful for this beautiful weather, but I just simply really wanted to wear this sweater.

Baseball Attire


Loving both of these outfits from head to toe! Especially the varsity jacket with the embellished cropped sleeves (possible DIY?!) and what about the matching houndstooth clutch and pumps?
The second image (need that sweater and the satin pumps!) reminds me of Sex and the City when Carrie dates the Yankee player and the girls are all dressed up to the max at the stadium.

What Started as Picking Flowers

(Free People blouse, Koshka cords, Dolce Vita boots, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Accessorize ring)

I love days that are completely spontaneous, and whenever I'm with Claire, they always are! Walking around our neighborhood in the village, we stopped to act like complete dorks and sniff the flowers and admire the pumpkins, before ending up at the local park...only to find a BREADED figure. Sooo yes, we asked a random dude to take our photo. Turns out he was a super sweet road biker from California! Eventually we befriended three really awesome road bikers (we're talking bicycles not motorcycles haha). Being the overly friendly chicks that we are, we brought them to our favorite Israeli cafe before making our way to Williamsburg. There we played guitar and sang our own versions of everything from the Beatles to the Red Hot Chili Peppers! THINGS GET FUNNIER. To ease our hunger pains, we opted for mini cheeseburgers at (off all places) WHITE CASTLE, which was the only place open at 2 in the morning. All I can say is, it was a totally random, fun night meeting new people, making music, and eating at the most legendary fast food restaurant on the planet. I swear this kind of stuff only happens in New York! Oh yeah, I wore a really awesome Free People blouse and boyfriend cords. These pieces always bring me back memories of that evening!

Last weekend, during my quick trip back home I could not pass on the opportunity to take some photos in the perfect fall weather! I wore a gorgeous dress from my friends new online store Christing c. that stocks some of my favorite brands, be sure to check it out..

I picked up the coat last weekend when I visited helsinki horse show, it's one of those traditional english wax coats that I will attempt to make suitable for the city. My mom thinks it's funny and I agree, we have been wearing these in the stable since I was a kid. But you know, horse coat spray for my hair and a traditional wax coat to keep my dry, you got to work with what you have.

I also got myself a cute dalmatian because the print is so hot right now!
joking of course it's my sisters overly dramatic dog who just loves the attention.
