It's Leonie :)


I LOVE LOVE LOVE that necklace <3

I don't think I have formally introduced my really really good friend to you all. I mean, I have mentioned her several times but never really had a post about her. So here goes...this is Leonie :) and she is amazing and awesome and she is just IT for me. I love her to bits! She recently just graduated so a BIG, HUGE, GINORMOUS Congratulations to her...again :) She wore this outfit to a friend's graduation lunch. It's  casual but with a Leonie twist.

My week, in a nut shell, was amazingly amazing. I went to an intern event in Houston, met a bunch of interns and networked with some important people from the company. It was fun and informative so "yay!" to that :). Im back in Nola and I'm worn out from the week's events. I know I said I would do all the touristy stuff but I'm so so so so so tired. However, I think I might make a trip to the French Quarters tonight and then go for some beignets and cafe au lait from the famous Cafe Du Monde :)

Leonie is wearing:

Top: Express
Jeans: Zara
Necklace: Aldo
Shoes: Sam Edelman c/o Nordstrom
Bag: Aldo
Lipstick: MAC "rebel"

It's Sunday :( and that means tomorrow is Monday....obviously. As much as it pains me say, HAPPY MONDAY :)

Yours Truly,

Marcie and Leonie <3

Spring Sophistication

I can finally say I am completely settled into the new city and the internship. It's been a busy couple of weeks, I don't even remember last week passing lol. Well, I'm back on my blogging thing and for the next week or week and a half Faith and Leonie will be helping me out with posts. Good news is I have made plenty new friends so the next step is asking someone to do the honors of the taking the pictures of me. I'm hoping a get a few this weekend :) Speaking of which, I haven't had the chance to see New Orleans yet so this weekend I'm going all out on the tourist-y stuff and I'm definitely sharing the picture I take :)

Anyway, this week the company I work for is flying me out to Houston for an intern conference and I'm pretty excited about that. I get to see all the people I worked with last summer PLUS I get see my "home" city again. Yea, Houston!!!

Faithie, looking as sophisticated and elegant as always as she sports a casual look for spring. Cut-out shirts are definitely in this season. She is wearing:

Shirt :  BB Dakota via Ideeli
Pants : American Apparel
Necklace : Kigali, Rwanda
Shoes : Zara
Bag : Zara
Sunglasses : Michael Kors

Leonie will be featuring next on the blog :) So keep an eye out. The next post should be up sooon :)

Hope you enjoy! :)

Yours Truly,

Marcie (and Faith)

PS: Special thanks to Faith for featuring and Obinna Ukwuani for taking the pictures. He super talented and took some the first professional photos of me :) You can check out more of Obi's work on his Flickr and his Facebook page

Lady in Red

watch as I strut for Faithie lol :)

I'm in New Orleans now and I miss Boston terribly. It feels like the first day of school and I'm the new girl...I had butterflies and everything lol. Wish me luck! First day of work is usually the most important, first impressions and all, and I think I made a pretty good first impression. Once again, I find myself being the only female on my team, its not bad but it would be extra nice to have a woman to talk to once in a while. lol.

I have avoided "tight" dresses since the end of high school but this dress spoke to me and it said, elegant. Forget the little black dress, this summer be fearless and rock that red :)

I have one more post for you guys until I go MIA. But Faithie and Leonie will help me keep the blog running until I'm to find someone to take the pictures.

So it's Monday and it's pretty much over but...HAPPY MONDAY :)

Yours Truly,
