Getting ready for the warmer weather with strappy sandals! This great chevron dress is a great light weigh chiffon. This is my favorite jacket. I like it because it is also lightweight and looks like poodle fur. Paired with this beautiful leather bag, the look is complete. I love the wooden handles and the hardware on the closure.
Both the bag and the sandals can be found at iBoutiques!

It’s finally a little warmer. Hence the 3/4 length sleeves on this cable sweater. But wearing the bejeweled embellished tank underneath may have been wishful thinking. I definitely had to keep the sweater on. It’s not THAT warm yet. However it did add a bit of sparkle to my layers.

I added a little glam to this casual look with metallic accessories. I love this gold collar and don’t wear it as often as I should. I’m sure we all remember when Louis Vuitton did these collars for the fall 2011 collection. I continued with the gold theme with these great pointy gold cap toe pumps.

I paired my classic Black and white tweed jacket and camelia brooch with a men’s red and white button down and black leather leggings in a menswear meets Lagerfeld amalgam. Black and white tweed pointy-toes bow shoes tie the look together.

These winter white micro velvet pants are super soft and warm. Paired with an embellished navy top. The little bead clusters all over the front ad a festive sparkle that is much needed in this gloomy NYC weather. Navy and white striped cardigan. And black equestrian knee high boots with gold buckle.

Can’t wait for the winter to be over. Ready to bust out the Spring stuff! Who’s with me?!?!

Thanks to Yuji from Zation for snapping these pics at the Mahna Mahna event during Fashion Week.
Its a fashion company specializing in renting high-end clothes, shoes, and accessories to stylists and celebrities. The company was established in April 1991 and opened its first showroom in Tokyo, Japan. This place was amazing! What a fun party full of fun people.

I wore this great Tracy Reese sequined fleur de lis top in chiffon paired with a brown menswear print blazer and black leggings. Brown and black leather and rubber riding boots for rain and snow… because it’s cold out there. And this great oxblood burgundy patent leather Coach bag.

Today… I wear nothing ;)

At a Vogue event for New York Fashion Week. Amazing wall of Brahmin bags. I really love this one. Beautiful croc detail down the front. 

This amazing smoking jacket-looking tuxedo jacket is a great burgundy velvet with black satin lapels by Lauren Conrad.

Today was the first day of New York Fashion Week. Yaaay! I was backstage at the Tome show. Taking pics and taking in the excitement of Tome’s first Lincoln Center show. Just fantastic.

Then off to the MTV party at Highline Ballroom with a nice table and some prosecco. Got to strut my stuff down the runway. Good times!!

For the occasion, I wore these great burgundy leather motto pants with fun quilted details at the knees. My fave Milly classic white button down with pearl buttons. Belted at the waist. A cute leopard calf hair headband for my bouffant. And these killer velvet heels.

I played up the burgundy with my new Coach bag. Not on sale in stores yet though. But soon, I’m sure :) Super cute. I love!

Had the pleasure of being photographed by a number of sites, blogs, and mags today at Lincoln Center. Cute pic on socialbliss. Great fun!

Feeling festive today in my green! This post is part two: Day look to yesterday’s night look. The green matelasse top is actually the dress from my party look that is a little too short for work ;)

I wore this amazing black body con skirt over top. It has a beautiful texture to it. Very intricate! The tweed jacket, of course, with the classic black tweed Chanel camellia added a layer of warmth.

I accessorized with great gray suede pumps with patent leather pointy cap toes. And this lovely sparkly green necklace. Looks like it could be a Yosca piece, but it’s not. 

Instead of a day-to-night look, I’m going to post a night-to-day look. Get dressed for your party… then add the day elements in the morning :) You can see the day look in the morning.

I did my hair in this great bouffant with a clean bun at the nape of my neck. Added a sweep of green liner along the bottom for a fun and surprising pop of color. And rocked my gold glitter peep toe heels. Ta Da!

Happy New Year!

Happy Holidays! This is my festive party look this year. I’m sure you remember when Prada did these great rose pieces. They really do make a beautiful, bold, yet feminine statement. 

The dress is a little burgundy and dark navy strapless number with bustier construction up top and lovely pintucks and pleat at the waist to give the skirt part some nice volume. The jacket is a great modern cut with sharp shoulders. 

Paired with gold cap-toe pumps, this look is perfect for the holiday party season.

Winter is in the air. And that means… mink! This stole was my grandmothers as you can see from the lovely monogram on the lining. And something so lovely needed to be the center of attention. So I chose this tweed number in a demure nude shade. But the gold chain and velvet ribbon detail give it some swag… refined as it may be. 

Creamy quilted leather pumps. Gold headband. Nude nail. South Sea golden pearl ring. Black poodle. The perfect accessories!

It was a little chilly in New Orleans. But thankfully it was tights weather and not full on pants weather. It was nice to get out of NYC and shrug off the coat for a few days.
I love the fullness of this skirt in contrast with the form fitting long sleeved shirt. Little brown mary janes and a skinny brown headband from Henri Bendel finished the look.

I love this vintage top. It is a stiff cream silk with delicate ruffles all along the cap sleeves and the plunging neckline. I draped the scarf and tied it at the neck with the know off to the side. 
Sweeping romantic updo with tons of little red pins and a pearl barrette on one side to hold back the swoopy part.
Paired with leggings with seam details down the front and back with brown knee-high riding boots.

Lots of lightweight silky scarf prints and sparkles today. This tie neck polka dot blouse is such a classic piece. I played with some pattern mixing and threw some fun textures in the mix with the quilted leather pumps and the tights.

For warmth, I layered opaque black tights under sparkly black fishnets. I topped it all off with this beautifully beaded angora and cashmere sweater and this little beret.
