Did I Miss the Red Jeans Thing?
That was my Facebook status and a tweet the other day. In some ways I feel like the Lady of Bath legs looks is so last whenever. But the other side of me is thinking that red jeans will make a great transitional item for late March into April. At first I avoided the color denim thing for fear of calling too much attention to my bottom half, but the more I think about it, the more I think red jeans could be a welcome addition to my piles of denim. They’d look great with my bow top from Tibi, my leopard print sweater that I’ve lived in all winter and my adored black blazer. I can also pair with my leopard ballet flats, awesome boots Husband got me for Christmas and ooooh! those amazing little booties by Ash. Of course, they’d also pair well with the perfect chambray shirt that has been alluding me for years…
What do you think? Should I opt for purple or a teal instead? And by the way, follow me on twitter @srajennamahoney

Paris Versus New York

As with living in NYC, I go through phases with Paris. Sometimes I think it is so overly lauded and other times I want to move there. Thanks to my quickie weekend trip last year at this time, I’m fully in the latter camp these days. Paris, even when gray, has a certain allure that February in NYC just doesn’t have. So it would seem fitting that during my daydreams and realistic quests for how-in-the-heck-are-we-going-to-live-in-Paris-when-we-haven’t-the-slightest-skillz-at-parlez le français research, I’d see this the interwebs going crazy for Paris Versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities, a new book of 100 city images by artist Vahram Muratyan.
The simplicity of the images are impactful, artful and—hey, guess what—sort of true.
imageAlthough, some super fashiony people may take umbrage with the Superheros one, as it features Karl V MJ, who actually spends most of the year living and working in Paris. JS.
Of course, the travel writer in me adores the CDG V JFK print. I’d love to frame it over that bar cart I’m going to get, someday.
