    Bringing the Bergdorf Holiday windows to Life!

    The holiday window displays in New York City are some of the most anticipated of the year!  Equally gorgeous and creative displays are always a guarantee.  Wandering the streets and admiring the windows is a fun holiday activity that doesn’t cost you a dime. The theme this year at Bergdorf Goodman (or Bergdorfs) is #Bergdorfgoodies which features sweet treats and cotton candy statues. This pink candy colored theme was my favorite! Funny thing about this post.  My friend Laura from abouttheoutfits and I wanted to do a really fun and glamorous holiday look.  We planned our coordinated pink fur outfits weeks before the Bergdorf Goodman holiday windows were unveiled.  To our shock and excitement,…

    The Statement Coat- Two Trends in one!

      The statement coat is a not just a coat.  It is a piece that carries itself.  It’s like the ultimate accessory.  It’s attention grabbing and steals the show.  The statement coat never goes out of style.  It will always be stylish to have a warm and beautifully unique coat.  What I love most about the statement coat is that all you need is a simple outfit underneath.  Jeans and a thin cashmere sweater are perfect for a chilly day.  Choose a bold pattern or color to elevate your outfit! Color Choosing a color and pattern are important.  You should be comfortable in both.  By definition, the statement coat should…

    Maggy London’s Little Black Dress

    Holiday dressing season is upon us! This time of year has to be the busiest for festive parties and dressier events. I immediately think of little black dresses, beautiful textures, and sparkly details!  I also think of Maggy London.  Maggy London has such a beautiful selection of dresses that suits any style, personality, and body type. Having a dress that I can rely on really saves me when it comes to multiple party and event invites.

    The New Workwear

    Workwear doesn’t have to be boring.  And it certainly doesn’t have to be reserved for work.  I used to separate my closet by my “workwear” and my “weekend wear”.  I would never ever look on the “workwear” side if I wasn’t going to work.  Once I started working from home more frequently, that side of my closet hardly ever got any use.  I was tired of having all those clothes that I didn’t love, taking up space in my closet.  Plus, it is super wasteful.  Workwear should be work appropriate, but it should also reflect your style.  Just because you are going to work, doesn’t mean that you have to leave…

    Gift Ideas for the Lover of Fashion

    The holiday season is quickly approaching and I don’t know about you, but I love to give personalized gifts.  Personalized gifts don’t necessarily mean they have to be monogrammed, but they should reflect each persons individual style.  I like to put a lot of thought into what my receiver will like.  I was so lucky to discover Chic on Paper which specializes in custom fashion illustrations.  This is a perfect gift for the fashion lover in your life, of any age. Chic on Paper is definitely very chic! Nina, the founder, has a knack for details that truly makes her designs stand out. She was kind enough to create a custom…

    The only Brunch outfit you need

    Brunch is a special meal. I always love brunch occasions. For some reason, they are as exciting to me as attending a wedding. That might sound over the top but it’s true. It’s the perfect excuse for having coffee too late in the day (I never have coffee past 10:00 am), mixing eggs with some Chicken Marsala, and having chocolate covered strawberries.  I love styling brunch outfits too. Something about brunch just says “dressy” to me. You might be wondering what you should wear for brunch?  It’s always best to be a little over-dressed than under-dressed, in my opinion.  Plus, it’s a fun to have an excuse to get a little…

    Sezane and new friends…

    The Sezane apartment in New York City sets the scene for a first meeting with one of my Instagram friends. One of the aspects of blogging I love best is meeting people with similar interests.  When I first started this blogging journey, the road seemed very lonely.  Instagram (IG) makes networking very easy.  You can find and follow those with similar interests or styles and develop a relationship by commenting on posts.  But because IG is global, it is rare that you actually get to meet these people who become your friends. Well, I did recently get a chance to meet one of my IG friends, Laura from @abouttheoutfits.  I’ve been following Laura since…

    Matching sets and why you need them!

      Matching sets are your new best friend!  We’ve all been there right? A closet packed with clothes but the never-ending dilemma of having nothing to wear? Let’s get to the bottom of this. You get sucked into the friends & family coupon you have received in your inbox. You browse the site and start adding things to your cart. Nothing you need right now, but these are all things that you “might need someday”. I remember specifically buying a dress with the thought of wearing it at a cafe on the Italian coast. I pictured myself sitting there drinking a coffee overlooking the Mediterranean. It was the perfect dress…
