Unlike most of my post wherein I’m rambling on about my ensemble and/or whatever activity I’m up to…..this post is straight to the point.

I joined a friend for what turned in to a sunrise, sunset brunch. Have you ever been out with friends and completely, utterly lose track of time? Like 10 hours in the day? Well that actually happened. Now that I think about it, it wasn’t the first time.

What’s my casual brunch look? This right here. Jean shorts I’ve had for too many years to count, a basic tee and a boyfriend blazer, (one of my best purchases of all time). These are pieces I live in, brunch or no brunch.

If you’re wondering why my bag looks a little odd, it’s because the long straps were replaced back 2013 which I posted about last October. Believe it or not, it’s taken that long for them to darken (patina). Have no fear, I would never purchase a fake and I don’t believe it purchasing pre-owned pieces either. At least not when it comes to designers such as LV & Gucci. Not saying others shouldn’t, its just a thing with me and my bags. I want the fun of going to the boutique to pick it out, wearing it in myself and also to know that if it did need to have work done to it, it was done at the hands of an LV specialist, not some leather master. (Though there are some amazing leather masters out there. Especially here in NYC).

Wait, I guess I ended up rambling again even though I said I wouldn’t. Oops, sorry ladies. LV Refurbish Cabos Alto I also love this tote because you don’t see girls walking around with it. Fortunately it’s out of production. I mentioned it before, (and I usually repeat myself more than I should), I hate the LV Neverfull tote. Even homeless people are carrying it. Its like Groupon sent out one of their blast and so everyone purchased it. It’s really odd. But good for the design team for coming up with it.
