Welcome to our website !

There is always a thrill to sit front row of a designer runway show you love. Ever since Marissa Webb launched her signature collection I have been attending her presentations and runway shows. This season I was snapping aways picture of my favorite pieces. Marissa Webb’s designs blend elements of architecture and nature by mixing tailored pieces with whimsical softness and flow. It was hard to pick just a few, since the entire selection was wearable. The blush pink tones obviously were stand out styles for me.

It's the season for fashion again in New York. The Fall 2015 New York Fashion Week shows just ended and it is always a whirl wind. The past few season's I have been invited to attend the Giulietta show. Designed by Italian born Sofia Sizzi, it is always infused with her passion for 1960's cinema.  Before the show even starts I love admiring all the Italian fashion girls at the show. Their particular style is an eclectic mix of designer brands. As the lights went down and the show began the dark glamour inspired by Bernardo Bertolucci's "The Conformist" walk out.  There were sharp geometric prints, chevron patterns and touches of crystal sparkle. As always I was drawn to the glimmering embroidery on the militaristic dresses and coats. The final walk ended on a airy high note of soft rose and jade tones. Giulietta is a show that truly inspires me with every new collection
              
It's almost the start of another New York Fashion Week, they always seem to come around so fast. My first look is warm in all sense of the word. Wearing a cozy knit sweater with an unseen ruffle in the back and a fitted ivory pencil skirt with flecks of gold metallic.  Finished with tights of course and my boots of the season.




I am always working on fashion segments for TV and previewing a ton of clothing to possibly feature. A site that has been my go to as of lately is Lulus.com. I can always find the perfect piece that is on trend. Most recently I chatted to Meredith Vieira about how to mix and match prints. This striped skirt completed the outfit perfectly, and everyone fell in love with it.  On Better TV I brought along these slip on sneakers that are practically a must have right now. I personally had to have the most adorable pink dress, I paired with a little crop top. There are just too many fab finds not to shop!

I am not the biggest fan of cold weather and lots of layers. Living in the state of New Jersey kind of forces me to do it. I like to try to find stylish pieces that will last year after year. This sweater seemed like a great deal. It's navy blue chunky knit and can be dressed up with a skirt or down with dark denim. That is until I put it on, to say it was itchy would is being nice. It was practically unbearable. I had to put a long sleeve top underneath it which in turn made the arms feel snug. Needless to say you will find this on Poshmark or being donated.

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.
