Drive In {the Outfit}

Drive InFashion Trends & Styles - Polyvore

Drive In by downtownsusiebrown featuring Paige Denim jeans

Best to stay with the retro vibe and who does that better than Kate Spade {top} and Tory Burch {sandals - told you I love 'em}. Can't get too dressed up for the drive-in so I chose to wear them with my Paige Denim boyfriends {from Violet's of Saratoga}. A cardi {J.Crew} is a must when the sun goes down. Don't forget the homemade popcorn {I found re-usable containers in the classic popcorn motif at Target}, bug spray and blankets to snuggle in and on!

Loving my....

Tory Burch "Miller" Sandals. Unfortunately, I did not find them downtown Saratoga, but on a recent trip to Las Vegas. I'm a big fan of Tory Burch. Much of her inspiration comes from her {former actress} mother, Reva {which she named her very popular ballet flat after}. She plays tribute to her mom's exceptional style, love of travel and her socialite standing in many of her designs. The catch is... her price points are attainable to those of us who want to buy "designer wear" but at reasonable prices. You get quality and style. I've had my Reva Ballet Flats for... let's see... my youngest was in pre-school... 4 years! And counting. Looks like these Miller sandals will get me through a few summers.

The Real Housewives of Saratoga Celebrate a Birthday and the Return of SATC!

OK - we are more than housewives... Artist, teachers, designers, sales women, lawyers, nurses, and most of all... moms - but hear us roar! We went out to celebrate the return of some old friends.... Samantha, Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte and the birthday of a very stylish local friend - Janet. The perfect night started at the Wilton Mall {who needs Vegas?}, followed by cosmos {of course} at Tiz Now and some nibblies at Bailey's. we did our best to not let the SATC girls down in the style department - Janet treated herself to a dress from Rent-the Runway, where you can rent a dress for a special occasion and it will only cost you $50.00. One friend referred to it as Janet's "net flix dress" - works about the same way!
Nothing like a night out with the girls!
