HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

December 29, 2009

We’re running out of time, New Year’s Eve is only 1 day away…time to actually commit to those last minute plans. Will you be going to that chic loft party downtown ($125), or the open bar at the W Hotel ($120), having a cocktail party at your apartment with a few close friends (BYOB), or will you be dining in style with your significant other (nothing too fancy)? So many choices…so little time and SO much money to spend (if you choose). Obviously, what you’ve decided to do will reflect the outfit you’re going to wear. See below for some very trendy options that will not break the bank (everything’s under $150), for wherever your night takes you:

Chic Downtown Loft Party or Open Bar at the W Hotel:

Cocktail Party at your apartment:

Dining with your significant other (my choice – I don’t really feel like the hype this year, but still want to do something special and dress up a bit):

What are your plans?? Have a VERY happy new year! =)


Loving Black Lace

December 22, 2009

It’s cold out there, so long sleeves and covered legs are a definite must, but if you still want a sexy edge, a touch of black lace is the way to go! So many options for such a classic touch to a simple LBD, your favorite blazer or as an accessory to a simple dress…

Rent Designer Dresses for 90% Off!

November 12, 2009

Tuleh– Rent for $200 & Catherine Malandrino– Rent for $75


Herve Leger- Rent for $150 & Alice & Olivia – Rent for $50

With the holidays right around the corner, Rent the Runway couldn’t have come at a better time. Need a unique LBD for Thanksgiving with the fam? Or a sexy, head turning dress for the New Year? Now you can have it all and for 90% off the actual price!!

Rent the Runway allows you to rent designer duds for much less! You can search by occasion, designer (such as Herve Leger, Alice & Olivia, DVF), trend, style…

How it works:

1) Find a dress you love…

2) “Schedule a delivery date, and your dress will appear on your doorstep. Next-day and even same-day delivery (if you live in NYC) is available, for last-minute wardrobe crises. And we’ll send you a second, back-up size—just to be safe.” Also, if the item doesn’t fit, you have 24 hours to return it, for no charge (score!)

3) “Put your dress in our handy pre-paid packaging and drop in the nearest mailbox (we take care of the dry cleaning!). “

I mean, honestly, whenever I buy a “special” dress for New Years, I wear it once and it never sees the light of day again. Rent the Runway is actually the perfect option for me (and you?). A $1,500 Herve Leger dress, for only $150!! WHAAATTT??

Go to http://www.renttherunway.com/ now. There is a waiting list, but I was invited to join within the hour, so don’t get scared away.

What do you think? Will you give it a try? I will!!

The Emmys: The Bold, The Beautiful and The Just Plain Bad

September 21, 2009

This might have been my fav of the night! LOVE the color and it was different…nothing like anything else on the carpet…

Bold colors were seen all over Red Carpet. Real statements being made with reds, purples, blues and metallics


Pale colors looked amazing also:

What were they thinking?

It was honestly hard for me to look at Leighton Meester, she took it all WAY too far…with the knotted shoulder pads, to the messy hair to the almost clown-like makeup…And as for Mila Kunis, that dress looks like it has eaten her alive, not a wise choice. OOOPS

Fashion Week’s Most Wanted: BCBG

September 13, 2009

Two of my favorite looks in 2009 were asymmetrical/one shoulder and the colorblock. From the looks on the runway of BCBG those trends are not going anywhere in 2010. Blocking the colors with prints and sheer is pure genius, the perfect twist to this already great trend. I’m also LOVING all the color and the fact that most of these looks are completely wearable by people like us! No overdone makeup needed, the clothes speak for themselves.

Check it out! What do you think? Which fashion week designs do you like best so far?

Get this look: Ashley Simpson

The look:

The pieces:

Ashley is looking fierce. Sexy yet classy. It’s easy to look cheesy in a animal print like this, but I think she is pulling it off eloquently. Simple accessories are key to making this outfit work!

How the perfect pair of shoes can change your entire wardrobe!

August 18, 2009

From what you have read on my past blogs, I’m sure you can see that I own a ton of dresses, but I also have so many that I have not worn in years and some that even still have the tags on them (I know this is awful). A bunch of these dresses haven’t been worn because I’m too much of a wuss to wear heals to work all day and they don’t look cute with flats. But after much research and shopping I found the PERFECT pair at Ann Taylor Loft!*

Ever since the purchase of these shoes I feel like I have a totally new wardrobe…my friends think I went on a shopping spree, but I’m just finally wearing what I haven’t in so long! Who knew that 1 pair of shoes could add so much to a wardrobe?!
What piece in your closet could you not live without? What do you do to spice up what you already own and make it new again?
*They are no longer available online, but you can get them in your local Ann Taylor Loft store for $35! Hurry up because these are sure to fly off the shelves quickly!

What type of shoe suits your needs most? My pick: The low-heeled wedge

July 29, 2009

I’m 5’0″ tall, so you would suspect that I prefer high heels to make myself appear taller, but the truth is, I am very rarely caught in a pair of heels. It’s not that I don’t think they improve an outfit, they definitely do, but the discomfort they cause is just not worth it to me. I can’t comprehend the need for wearing sky high heels to the office every day. Most girls I’ve worked with do this and think I’m the crazy one for wearing flats all the time. Hey gals, at least MY feet aren’t bleeding!

I’ve decided that flats aren’t really cutting it either though, that my dresses all do look a lot better with a little addition to my height, but I’ve decided to go a different route, one that gives me both height and comfort. These low heeled wedges are exactly what I’ve been searching for. Basically, we are a match made in shoe heaven! These choices below are so chic, I can’t believe they’re comfortable too!

What type of footwear do you choose for work? Do you switch it up for a night out on the town? Do you choose fashion over comfort or visa versa? What shoe suits your needs most? Why do they work for you?

Looking for something a little unexpected? Try the exposed ZIPPER!

July 26, 2009


I just saw someone on the street wearing these sandals and I almost tripped over my own feet just to get another glance. I can’t believe I actually found them!! I am really drawn to everything and anything with zipper detail, it adds just the right amount of “edge” to any piece whether it be shoes, handbags, dresses or tops. I think what I love so much about this is that they are always unexpected, like the exposed zippers on the back of the pink/black colorblock dress and blue top below or the zipper on the pocket of the white t-shirt. The zipper always adds a little shock value; spices things up a bit. Are you as struck by these zipper details like I am? I mean, honestly, how can you not be?

Need a pop of color? Add YELLOW!

July 22, 2009

Any time I’ve ever needed to add a touch of color to my black and white wardrobe, I always grabbed something red, until now. All over the city my eyes jet back and forth at the vibrant yellows I see all around. There is something about yellow that just screams summer and I love it! The way it bounces off a fresh tan is flawless. I just bought myself a yellow cardigan and I feel so alive in it…like I have gotten 12 hours of uninterrupted sleep (wouldn’t that be nice?)How do you feel about yellow and have you been sporting it this summer?

Check out these options below. I wish I could buy them all, don’t you?
