Cosmopolitan Chic

>> 17 December 2014


Vegas is always a quick trip fun getaway for me. I try to make my way there for a least a few days every year. The last time I went I stopped in to the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas and fell head over heels for the glamorous decor. Crystals were literally dripping everywhere. It is definitely where you will find me the next time around.
To be #cosmopolitanchic by the pool, a modern geometric print Mara Hoffman bikini. These crystal sandals by Miu Miu are a must, because sparkle is always a plus in Vegas.  I never go to the pool with out all my essentials aka good book, headphones, sunscreen, stashed in a cute KoKu tote.

Having ate at Scarpetta on my last trip to sin city I would certainly make my way back.  This time I would wear this off the shoulder black dress, paired with studded Christian Louboutin heels and Bottega clutch bag
I have officially daydreamed enough, I might have to plan a winter getaway sooner rather than later.

Would so love to hear what you are buying this year too!

What are a few of your favorite gifts this holiday season, that won’t break the bank?
  • H&M has fancy embellished clutches to dress up any outfit that can be worn any time of the year PS. Makes a great stocking stuffer too!
  • You can splurge on timeless staples, like leather boots or luxe cashmere pieces like sweaters
  • It’s the perfect season for outerwear, make a statement with a bold color like red
  • Petite jewelry is all the rage this season. Skinny rings, ultra thin bracelets and more. Julie Vos has this Acanthus bangle, which is one of their best sellers. Its easy for everyday. Inspired by the classic Acanthus leaf. Perfect for the season. Available in 2 widths, wear them together to create a stackable versatile look
  • The Julie Vos Mosaic Stone Cuff has 7 colors to choose from. It is an easy open cuff that fits most wrists. The pebble detailing around the stones makes for a playful look. It has just enough pop of color to turn into their new favorite bracelet.

  • Festive stocking stuffers, have some of the best surprises that come in the smallest packages Scarves and gloves are perfect accessories for style and warmth.
  • A trendy girl can never have enough lipstick; Maybelline has the best color choices for the holidays.  Maybelline New York Color Sensational Creamy Mattes dress up a holiday look with a bold statement. Made with a unique formula that offers a matte finish while giving lips a dewy, creamy fee. They add texture without drying out the lips. Available in 10 shades there is definitely a shade to compliment any woman’s skin tone.

  • Sparkling, glittery gifts are always exciting to find at the bottom of your stocking. Julie Vos’s Milano 6-Stone Bangle is delicate and hammered they are easy to pile on.  Wear up to 6 for a bold yet classic look.

Teddy Bear Coats


This whole fall season I have been seeing teddy bear coats everywhere. At first I wasn't really into them. The texture seemed overwhelming, but the more I see them the more I want one. I think because it is getting colder and they look so warm and cuddly hence like a teddy bear. Would you wear one?

Savile Row Society

>> 02 December 2014


Men deserve (and need) a little pampering, a little man time while shopping. Unlike women they often don't like to spend hours on end shopping for all the right pieces to make an outfit complete. Yet, not too often do they reach out to a fashion stylist for help.

Savile Row Society has stepped in and has made this process a breeze. Guys can now have their very own personal shopper available to create their perfect wardrobe.  For the guys fresh out of college and ready for their first job to established gentlemen looking for more refined pieces.

In a few simple steps they will be virtually assigned a stylist.  Then will be on their way to a completely personalized wardrobe.  Those who live close to Manhattan, have the option of visiting the showroom. While viewing the many pieces in the Savile Row Society closet, men can sip fine whiskey or choice of vino.  It is a new experience almost every guy would enjoy.

Vente Privee

>> 22 October 2014


I am all about finding new exclusive sites to shop designers. I have spent endless hours scrolling through sites like Gilt and Rue La La. Then I learned about Vente- Privee. It is an online luxury flash sale site. In french it means "private sale."  Essentially, each day  vente-privee has brands up to 70% off. That is incredible and worth a browse around.

Jimmy Thigh Highs

>> 05 October 2014


I am once again back on the Fall hunt for thigh high boots. I need appropriate ( not too hooker looking) but still stylish with a heel. They must also have a perfect fit around the thigh. I spotted a few. These Jimmy's still the ones.

Rolando Santana Spring 2015

>> 08 September 2014


There are certain fashion shows each season I am excited to see. First for the collection of course and second for  reuniting with fashion friends. Rolando Santana is that show.  Season after season his collections are dreamy and feminine. For Spring 2015 cool minty green color was Rolando's hue of choice. From slinky gowns and sparkle to light sweaters and dresses it was divine. I whispered to one of my dear friends, you might just see me wearing that sweet dress on tv.

Giulietta Spring 2015


Surrounded by the lovely chatter of Grazie Italia editors speaking Italian, I was in heaven admiring their impeccable style. Giulietta's Spring 2015 is one of my top favorites runways to attend. It takes me to Italy for just a few fleeting moments while watching the show. The collection was classic pastel for Spring with pops of orange and sultry black. Details like crystal necklines and lavender platform shoes literally elevated the pieces to another level. Spinning the music at the church turned runway was gorgeous girl DJ Harley Newton. I didn't want to leave. For a little peek, here is a glimpse into the show. http://instagram.com/p/sp57tJOB7v/
