Instagram Round-up plus NYFW

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…

Orange you Glad to See Me?

Orange you glad to see me?!  I hope so!  Since you're here reading MSL, I'm guessing that you read my 2017 Goals and Resolutions post, in which I so humbly suggest that one of your resolutions should be to read more MSL! So now that we're into the swing of 2017 (we are right?!) I'm sharing my first outfit post of the year!  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me in this bright orange sweater.  With this freezing cold weather I couldn't have asked for a better winter piece.  There's also something really cathartic about wearing a bright color when it's absolutely freezing out -- it really brightens up your outfit and your mood! I found this sweater at my new favorite store: & Other Stories, which is actually a higher…

Six Ideas for 2017 Goals and Resolutions

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you’re having a great 2017 so far. I’d like to kick off my first post of 2017 to say: thank you. Thank you for following me through this journey called blogging and my adventures (sometimes misadventures) in style, travel, food, and life. Having my blog has been an incredible creative outlet for me and I very much appreciate you reading and being a part of the process. If this is your first time reading my blog, I have a great New Year’s resolution for you: read more My Stiletto Life! Ha! In any event, now that the holidays are over – phew! – life can resume.  I know some people love the pomp and circumstance of the holidays but I personally am most satisfied when I am back…

Winter Ready

Winter Ready

New York City was very cold this past week and we got our first proper snowfall on Friday night, which means just one thing: Winter is here!  Yep, remember Winter?  She came late last year, but this year she's right on time and I for one am making myself winter ready.  An oversized scarf, like this plaid one from Banana Republic, is one of the many pieces that is keeping me warm this season.  (Also see booties, large coat, tights, and gloves!)  This particular scarf is rather large and allows you to wrap it around your neck multiple times -- adding some extra layers. I've also been looking around for another pair of booties to wear everyday (I am eyeing these Steve Madden ones), the ones I'm wearing in this look are from Reiss…
