"I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern, very now - no one wears head-to-toe designer anymore."

And,
Some of the essentials: 
 
 So, I actually wore pants.
 Gasp! Frankly, I tend to find pants a bit restrictive...and just overall, a great deal of work. Sheesh. And especially when the weather heats up, and we're all sweating like crazy, looking sticky and unattractive, pressed up against one another on the subway? Forget it!  
Dresses are just easier! Breezier! But, I opted for a casual Friday look as I caught a matinee movie. Matinee movies are a treat for me. And the best part? I go to the AMC Loews theaters here in New York City, and any films before noon are just 8 bucks. 8 sounds great. Considering the absurd prices of regular movie tickets ($14), matinees have become my thing. A date for me and yours truly!  After the movie, I then headed downtown to the National American Indian Museum at the historic Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House downtown. Tidbit- this museum is free! Free! Free is fabulous, darling. Kudos for educational and cultural experiences for little-to-no cost. This outfit, though, was comfortable and just right for my day of wallet-friendly activities.
Since the pants and top are moderately simple--except for the unexpected backless nature of the tunic-- I chose to spice up the ensemble with some simple touches. Scarf? McQueen, and it's a done deal. This girl adores a good hat, and although turbans aren't for everyone, I find them uuuuuber chic. I threw on some tasseled loafers that could withstand a good trek around the city in a lemon-lime shade. Again, comfy and cute. Not over-done or trying too hard. Lastly, one more notable is the fuschia  pink lipstick that I myself am even shocked that I've been digging. I received this LAQA & Co lipcolor in this month's Birchbox that arrived in the mail, and I'm into the rich pop of color and creamy texture of this product, despite the fact that I'm not really a pink kind of girl.
 
Some times, I even surprise myself. Who knew?
