It’s Like Riding a Bike…with Raleigh Bikes

Raleigh Bikes

You know how the old adage goes…it’s like riding a bike, and does that saying sure ring true!  Experiencing the thrill of riding a bike with Raleigh Bikes' freshly debuted and newly stylish “The Superbe” model has never been so sweet! My bike riding skills and days have had a somewhat dubious past and I probably haven’t ridden a bike in about 3 years, maybe more -- full disclosure: I didn’t even learn how to ride a bike until I was perhaps 7 or 8!  (I know crazy but I lived on a hill to be fair!)  So when I received this adorable and stellar bike from Raleigh Bikes, I was a little hesitant to jump right on and start riding, but once I did – you couldn’t get me off the bike --…

Red and Lacy in Michelle Mason

Michelle Mason

I recently ventured over to Brooklyn for a blogger brunch hosted by The Regal and Hooch and I couldn't resist wearing this red lace dress by Michelle Mason.  Yes, it's a bit much for brunch but I really wasn't too worried about that because a dress like this deserves to be worn anytime, anywhere! There are a few versions of this dress on the market -- but this exact version is a little hard to find.  Scroll down to see links to similar pieces and to see the rest of my look! Similar versions to the dress: option 1, option 2, option 3.  Boots: exact pair here, option 2. Hope Everyone has a great week!

NYFW Recap

Now that New York Fashion Week is behind me (yes, I know I was being a bit of a whiner about it last week, in my Instagram round-up post), but I must say, I did enjoy the fashion week events I did attend.  Below is a photo recap of my whereabouts and what I wore! First up: a blogger brunch with Twiirly at a new West Village hot spot: While We Were Young. Enjoying a NYFW mimosa... Shop my sweater here: it's a great oversized piece that's super versatile! Here are some other sweater options: 1, 2, 3. Chicken and kale waffles bites were served... Like my shorts and boots?  Shop them here: boots, shorts. There's always room for some bubbly too! After brunch, I headed to the ShopStyle Social House where I mingled with…

Chinese New Year

It's here again, that hellish, err I mean heavenly and divine time of year where the city is packed with fashionistas running (in stilettos) from show to show and party to party.  Believe me, I am not excluding myself from my acerbic assessment of NYFW, I too am one of those "fashionistas!"  I even wrote about surviving this epic week back in September.  NYFW is great, so many parties, people to connect with and lots of cool street style but I can unequivocally say that NYFW in the winter is actually a little bit hellish.  Primarily, because of the awful freezing cold weather.  This this around we are expecting a snow storm coming in late tonight and continuing all day tomorrow which also happens to be the first day of fashion week.  OY.  So with…

How to Wear Bras that are Meant to be Seen

bras that are meant to be seen

If you haven't noticed, bras are not just bras anymore...they are bras that are meant to be seen:  fashion pieces.  More and more brands are making bras not just to serve their basic function (support) but also to add a little something extra to an outfit.  I have taken this trend head on for the last couple of years as you can see in some of my other looks where my bra was a main component in the outfit.  More recently Boohoo sent me this adorable mesh bodysuit (another trend I have taken on with full force as well) and it's completely transparent.  So you have to have the right bra to wear with it to make sure it adds to the look.  I just so happen to work in the bra industry so I have…
