A Day In The Life (And Lipstick) Of Kelly Framel

Style Bloggers may be a dime a dozen these days, but when it comes to raising the bar on daily sartorial awesomeness, The Glamourai's Kelly Framel has that market cornered. If you're one of her 12,000 twitter followers or half a million daily readers, you know this former designer-turned-digital fashion connoisseur has a lot to say about models, trends, must-haves, and, especially, her own unique make-us-want-to-copy-her style. As the third installment in our "Lipstick Diaries" series (thanks, Dior!), we tagged along with this Brooklyn-based ingenue for a very Glamourai day on the town...gosh, she makes it look so easy!
12 p.m.: Lunch & Coffee at ABC Kitchen — "I love meeting girlfriends for a super-fresh lunch at ABC Kitchen, then lingering afterward in their sunny window bay—sipping coffee, catching up on the papers, and replying to a few of my never-ending emails! For today's excursion, I wore my beloved scalloped, khaki, leopard-lined trench, a very vintage, Dior-esque circle skirt, which I scored on a recent trip to Las Vegas (it was the least showgirl of the shop's offerings), ladylike kitten heels, and Dior Addict Lipstick in Paris 762, a punchy-pink shade. I'm so excited about kitschy kitten heels for spring; at once they feel both whimsical and sophisticated."
ABC Kitchen, 35 East 18th Street (between Broadway and Park Avenue South), New York, NY; 212-475-5829.

3 p.m.: Blogging at Home—"A bit later, I popped home to check in on Bunny, my papillon puppy, and catch up on some blogging. Since I work mostly from home, I need my space to be both functional and inspirational. Luckily, I adore interior design, so the process of building that balance around myself has been an enjoyable challenge. I'm strict about not letting myself lounge around in pajamas; even at home, I want to feel like I'm dressed to take on the day. So, I slipped into a 1930s floral frock, heavy-heeled boots, and Dior Addict Lipstick in Perfecto 991...a great look (and inspiration) for writing."

9 p.m.: Drinks at The Jane Hotel—Quickly, I zipped into a favorite textured strapless dress, slouchy silk jacket, peppy grass-green heels and Dior Addict Lipstick in Miami 635, then hopped into a cab headed west. The final stop of the day was the Jane Hotel Ballroom, whose faded British colonial décor unfailingly sets a delightfully decadent tone for the evening's impending festivities...fun, fun, fun!"
The Jane Hotel, 113 Jane Street (near West Street), New York; 212-924-6705.
