Gisela's Saturday on 5th Avenue

This is what I wore Saturday on my "day off." Hubby took baby to Brooklyn and I stayed behind for some good ol' me time.. I'm not a shorts person by any means but I saw this adorable "Skort" at F21 and I figured it'd be perfect for summer and fall..I paired them with an AA tank, JC Ann Tie boots, Raybans and Chanel jumbo.

Strolling on 5th ave I decided to see if the Burberry store had those awesome fw09 platform lace up booties I want but unfortunately the sales clerk said they're not in yet but would call me once they are..sigh.. So I headed to Barney's to check out my second choice... the Alexander Wang booties. I tried on a few pairs. I snuck some pics on my blackberry, sorry about the quality :-(




Right now I'm still undecided until I try on the Burberry boots but I would definitely not get the last pair, the ones you have to lace up and tie yourself, too much trouble. The others had zippers in the back, much easier.

I had to take a pic of this graceful woman sporting a marvelous hat that Schiaparelli herself would be proud of.

Afterwards, I stopped at the Zara on 5th and picked up this knock-out Balmain inspired jacket! Only one left , and it was my size, lucky me!!

Also checked out H&M, which I haven't been too in a while since I spend my time at both F21 and Zara, but I picked up one of their FW09 dresses. Planning on stuffing the sleeves with some tulle I have.. maybe..

As you can probably guess, Maury and I are over the moon about the
Barney's Warehouse sale finally starting this Thursday! This is where
Maury and I get most of our gems. Check out the info below for dates
and times..

    ♥ Hannah

  3. That skirt is hot (and haute!)

  4. Ooh bootie shopping ;-) And thanks for the incredibly sweet comment! :)

  5. sale is like music to my ears.... : )

  6. Sexy shorts outfit! Love the pic with the horse in the the background, especially.
    I really would like to have that Zara jacket too for fall!
    Thanks for sharing your day!

  7. Hi Gisela!
    Love your entire outfit and can't help admiring the purse! I'm so itching to get one for myself now but I have to restrain myself. Not yet, patience, patience! So for now, I'll just enjoy looking at yours!
    And about the Barney's warehouse sale, I'm so jealous! Wish we have one here. =(

  8. OMG!! That H&M dress is beautiful sweetie. I really wanted one for myself. You look really chic. I love your mini floral skirt ;)
    Please tell Maury I say hi ;)

  9. ahhh those a. wang boots! divine.. it seems everything that man touches turns to gold!

  10. Sweet skort! :) I used to love wearing those!! Love the lace up boots too... :)

  11. that blazer is amazing. i love sharp cuts in the shoulders like this. i currently posted the blazer i own on my blog. i love blazers and may have to get one of these zara jackets myself! thanks for sharing this great piece! also love the print on the F21 skirt. x

  12. Mmmh Actually I am always mesmerized by the "Fashionista's trying her Fetish Fineries" posture . . . especially when her high-arched bare feet gives us such a (so Bewitching) "natural/carnal Stiletto" illusion !!!! Just like a powerful gracefulness' allegorial illustration . . .
    à Bientôt, Antoine

  13. Good luck at the sale. Hope you get some great finds...

  14. Ooh, more purchases! I have yet to see the Zara blazer in person.. I keep forgetting to drop by a Zara. And I can't believe that dress is H&M! I'm still totally undecided which boots I want for FW. It doesn't help that the Isabel Marant booties are everywhere here, but I don't like spending so much on Suede, which I'll undoubtly ruin in Europe's rainy climate. Great shopping outfit by the way!
    Oh, and so awesome you're going to Edinburgh! Are you joining your hubby? Definitely also check out the area around Armstrongs. It's such a lovely part of town with many more vintage shops. And if you have a sweet tooth, you have to try some of the fudge in the Fudge Kitchen (it's on the Royal Mile). Have fun!

  15. Gorgeous, darling!
    Love the skort!
    And I am sooooooo excited for the Barneys sale too!

  16. Cute skort! I love your shoes too. So fab. :)

  17. You're so lucky about the Zara find. Cannot wait to see what you wear them with.

  18. oh! I love NY! and you look so amazing! Love this short/skirt so much! Your shopping was also so well done!

  19. Bonsoir Gisele, Mon Amour ;)

Wooow ;)

  20. Hi Gisela,
    Your shorts are so adorable and of course i love the H&M dress!
    hmmm, i would be very confused about which pair to get because i like both the Alexander Wang and Burberry boots! It's going to be a hard choice Gisela ;)
    I look forward to finding out which ones you will go for in the end!
    Anna xx
