Yesterday I bumped into a lovely follower while I was holiday shopping, and she asked, ” You are always so dressed up in your outfit photos, do you actually dress like that everyday?” I paused for a brief moment, and answered, “Yes, I actually do.” Although, I have to admit, sometimes I swap out my flats for a pair of heels, but for the most part I like to glam things up. It also has to do with the fact that I live in LA, where the sun is out 99% of the time, where walking doesn’t exist, and living in your car is completely the norm. With that said dressing up in feminine dresses bare legged and all , and to {minimally} walk around in 5 inch heels is completely doable in LA.

But when in New York I find myself a bit more practical when it comes to my outfits. Running to catch a cab to make it to my 9 am meeting, while holding my coffee, all while answering that urgent email is usually what my life looks like in the city. Therefore it’s entirely essential to have the right purse, so you could be hands free, and of course the right shoes! When it comes to practical yet chic purses nothing can really beat this sporty yet structured Elizabeth & James drawstring backpack. Finding a pair of shoes that is just as comfortable as it is chic, without sacrificing the height, can be quite tricky if not impossible! Luckily I got my hands on these Isabel Marant velcro wedge  booties (now on sale) ,from Forward By Elyse Walker,  just in time for my recent NY trip that kept me running from meetings to meetings comfortably & stylishly.

It’s great to hear the differences between LA and NY. I’ve always felt that it’s hard to wear heels all around NY (everyone looks so fabulous though!). Those IM boots are gorgeous!

Agree…LA weather’s more inviting for glamorous fashion! It’s more effort in NYC!
But this look is very stylish too…NYC chic! ;-)

Love to see glamor in everyday life. It’s always better to be over than under-dressed.
With that said, I’ll take cut-off shorts over most things haha.

Love your coat….I prefer coats without collars as I have a short neck and round face…they are hard to find!
