Hello Strangers. So, seeing that it has now been over a year since I, Laurel McKay Luckey, have moved to Manhattan, successfully procured a job, an apartment, not had more than two hands worth of nervous breakdowns, survived one winter and am about to battle out polar vortex number two (Winter is coming...), and have … Continue reading Things I have learned since moving to New York
As many of us "New Yorkers" (I have officially lived here a year, I can now associate myself in this class of people) know, the weather in this part of our fair country can be quite unpredictable. One day it's 88 degrees when the day before it had been in the 60s so you spend … Continue reading Fall is upon us!
Hello blogging world. It is I, the elusive writer who posted at least once a week for 4 months and then just disappeared into a black hole of lingerie never to be heard of again. I'm not sure if I had regular followers but if I did I apologize. This working stuff has taken up a lot … Continue reading No white after Labor Day
A couple of weeks ago, my friend of a very long time, Ashley Gunkel, reached out to me about us possibly doing a collaboration to celebrate the release of her new jewelry line. Not only was I ecstatic that she considered me a good enough writer to do a post for her but I was … Continue reading Designer Highlight
I apologize that it has been about two weeks since I have posted. After the rush of amazing feedback I received for my last post (which I wrote most of after a couple glasses of wine and the rest on my break at work the next day so color me shocked), I didn't have any … Continue reading Introduction to next article

Since I have lived in New York, I've really learned the extent of how truly different weddings are in the South as opposed to the northern area of the country. The first time … Continue reading But what’s the etiquette on that?
Yesterday, I partook in one of every New York fashionista's favorite past times: the sample sale. I realized that hey, I have been living here for almost a year and had yet to go to one and all of a sudden began to feel very, very sad. I could have been finding a whole trove … Continue reading Kiki de Montparnasse Sample Sale
*Before I start writing this, yesterday, I was informed of the lack of paragraphs in my writing. While this may have been followed with a comment about how I'm the Jack Kerouac of fashion blogging, it still made me realize that despite of my hatred for paragraphs in that they interrupt my artistic thought, they … Continue reading Caudalie, my lips feel like a baby angel’s. Thank you.
If you've been reading my blog, or let's be honest even if you haven't, you know that I love to shop. My first few daily thoughts go in this order: #1. "Dammit how is it 9 am already? I can "sleep" my alarm just once... #2-5. I can "sleep" my alarm one more time #6. … Continue reading Shopbop Sale!
I'm obsessed with Kate Bosworth. If I could trade closets with any celebrity (and was able to magically become a size 0) it would be her. So when I saw this photo of her at the airport, my obsession was rekindled instantly. I love her mix of the orange Etro blazer with the silver Prada … Continue reading The look for much less.
