Hi there!

For this week’s post I wanted to shout out For Love & Lemons for another perfect party dress that I’m so happy to be wearing for an occasion: my NYC farewell party as I leave soon to move to Los Angeles (but I’ll be back and forth)! This party dress called the Guilded Star Mini Dress was just on sale! I love that I can style it by day with nude wedges and my LV Speedy like I did in photos above, and for night I swapped out wedges for a black star boot from Free People and my YSL black medium Kate evening bag!

Who says sparkle can’t be worn by day? Fashion rules are made to be broken! 

Xo,

Hi there! 

With Valentine’s Day coming up many of us wonder what to wear (even when single like I currently am!) because I love holidays. Here is a really fun idea for you. I worked with Tobi clothing on the blog and I styled the Leila laced scalloped skater dress in a sexy vintage way with tan Cuban heel black back seam stockings and a classic black Louboutin Pigalle pump. I finished the look with my YSL medium Kate purse and messy wavy bed hair, a cat eye and a bright red lip. To me a woman in a classic red lip black pump and red dress will always look sexy, and the messy hair shows the look isn’t too fussy either. This dress is a little more revealing than most dresses I wear but I challenged myself to put on something a bit more daring for the occasion.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day no matter how it’s spent. With friends family a significant other or alone, there’s no right way to spend a day celebrating love.

Hi there! 

I recently started to work with Tobi clothing, and have fallen in love with some of the beautiful pieces they sent me. In this post I styled the gorgeous Bella Ribbed Bodycon dress - a perfect LBD for a night on the town- with my classic Christian Louboutin black pumps and YSL medium Kate handbag. I am also wearing Cuban heel tan stockings with a black stripe down the back because if I’m going to wear stockings I find these to be the most beautiful classic and elegant. So that’s how I finished off this classic look! Many stocking manufacturers will make this staple stocking. It makes me feel like a woman in the 1940s. My fashion might be a bit more updated but I always love a vintage feel! I feel like a classic woman in them. 

Another thing I just love about Tobi is how affordable their pieces are and they don’t look inexpensive.  Stay tuned for more Tobi looks coming up. So excited to share them with you!

Happy shopping!

Hi there! 

Continuing the vintage band tee trend (I love how versatile a great rock and roll band tee can be) we recently photographed another t-shirt from the TaschNYC vintage repurposed tee collection. This one was a Janis Joplin tee with custom heart cutout and studded detail in the back. All the tees have been custom redesigned in some way which I really love. I styled this with my Old Navy high-waisted Bell bottom jeans (a recent sale score!) and my Topshop teal faux fur jacket. I finished the look with my new Sam Edelman teal velvet platform sandals and my YSL medium Kate bag. I felt right out of the 70s with this look; a little boho rock and roll vibe!

I also worked with TaschNYC in the past with some of their gorgeous dressy looks including a beaded purple dress I had a blast shooting in and walking the runway in. They have some fun casual wear as well as formal ladies clothing!

Hi there! 

This week is devoted to the classic Rock & Roll band tee. I worked with designer Tasch on this post. I just love her stuff since she repurposes a classic band tee. In this look she has added holes and burnt others into the oversized black Nirvana tee I’m wearing. I styled it with my Blank NYC vegan leather leggings, H&M metallic ankle booties and Bebe leather moto jacket, finishing it off with my new YSL medium Kate purse in all black. 

I love the way a band tee can add edge to any outfit, and since this t-shirt is oversized I wanted to pair it with a legging and jacket and add an ankle boot. The all black edge gets funky with a metallic boot which is a huge trend at the moment. This classic yet edgy look is timeless. 

Hope you are having a groovy weekend!
