9 to 5

Working at a hospital with a strict dress code could feel stifling for a fashionista.  However, I choose to welcome the challenge!  If you work in a conservative environment: layers, prints, color and accessories are your best friends. This is a comfortable look photographed by an aspiring photographer who is 6 years of age.  To my good fortune, he lives with me and is always willing to help.

Red (hair), White and Blue

An outfit post from a week ago. Just getting around to posting it now.
Blue Top: Baraschi; White Jeans: Citizens of Humanity, Shoes: DKNYC (old)

Looking mean and tough. Grrrrrrrrrr.  More importantly, a shot of an antique necklace that once belonged to my great grandmother.  Below, is a slightly better shot. 
 Ta Ta for now.

Copper Maven is Back!

After a year hiatus, Copper Maven is back my friends!  I'm still hopelessly obsessed with fashion and excited to share my new digs and ensembles with you....

Corset top: Anthropologie; Pants: J Crew; Sunglasses: very old Gucci    
This is what I wore on a City Lights Party Cruise around NYC last week.  You certainly can't tell from the too-cool-for-school puss on my face but it was a great night.  This is the best outfit shot I  could muster up......and a testament to my favorite Annie song, titled Your Never Fully Dressed Without  Smile.
Doing the peplum trend here and keeping it simple in my black J.Crew Minnies.  In the past year I've moved away from over-accessorizing and moved towards taking Coco Chanel's advice:  take one accessory off before leaving the home.  Note the antique art nouveau necklace gifted to me by my lovely mother -in-law, another trend of the season: art nouveau inspired jewelery.  

 I think I may need to take some modeling lessons from my pals here.......aren't they funny?

Aren't they pretty too?
