Re Your Holiday Wish List

your holiday wish list

  The holiday season is in full swing and as I noted in my last post -- my velvet crush is very real and it has been a staple of my holiday dressing.  Holidays are not all about parties and velvet dresses (well actually they are) but they are also about gifts and presents.  Let's be honest, everyone's always like "it's the season of giving" but aren’t you really more concerned with what you're going to receive this year (rather than give)? I know we've all received those gifts where we have to smile enthusiastically on the outside but on the inside we're all "what the what, does this person know me at all!?"  Case in point: all I have wanted for the holidays, essentially every year of my life, is every single episode…

Velvet Crush

Velvet Crush

I have a crush.  You may have noticed.  Yes, I have a crush on Velvet.  Luscious Velvet.  You've seen Velvet on my Instagram, in a previous blog post and now here again.  Velvet does not disappoint!  I think the holidays could have something to do with it – since Velvet brings such richness and warmth to every look.  And darnit! Velvet is sexy. Ok, I'll stop pretending Velvet is a person (if only!).  No, Velvet is the fabulous fabric that I have been donning myself in all holiday season.  There are so many amazing velvet pieces for your holiday dressing, there's no reason you shouldn't also have a crush on Velvet. This low cut velvet dress was the perfect piece to shoot in Chinatown.  Ever since I got back from Japan, I have been wanting to…

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  I am truly soaking up Thanksgiving this year as it's one of my only days off between now and New Year's Day...so here's to dreaming about 2017!  Since I returned from my Japan trip (I know post coming!) I really got thrown right back into my life in NYC (it is the city that never sleeps right?).  From work, to moving (yay!), to transitioning from fall to winter and then bam: the holidays are upon us.  As a result of all of this, I haven't had much time to post, but I'm hoping, as I start to acclimate to my new place and am not living out of boxes, I'll get back into my posting groove. Today, I’m sharing this ASOS velvet midi dress, which I received a slew of compliments on…

Wine Colored Dresses for Thanksgiving

wine colored dresses

In honor of Throwback Thursday today, I am revisiting a look from a year ago that is the perfect wine colored dress.  With Thanksgiving around the corner it's the perfect opportunity to introduce those rich wine colors like red, garnet, maroon, and bordeaux into your wardrobe.  It's a such an exquisite color that works particularly well this time of year. The color is not just rich but it lends itself to rich and intricate fabrications such as: lace, wool, and velvet.  The below dresses are perfect for a casual Thanksgiving or a fancy one...just make sure you let everyone know you match the wine! Here's a couple shots from last year and you can see the entire post here! Photos by Andrew Morales. Shop more wine colored dresses: [show_lookbook_widget id="317236"]  

That Off the Shoulder Top

   You may have noticed that the off the shoulder trend is one that fashion mavens cannot get enough of. It really is an adorable and sexy trend that transitions well into fall and winter looks as well. There are plenty of sweater and long sleeve options that are perfect for the cooler months. The particular off the should top I’m wearing (at a great price!) works well for summer, fall and winter. In these fall months, adding a colorful and chunky scarf is the perfect solution to cover up a bit. Considering you will probably be indoors most of the time when wearing this, I don’t think you’ll have to worry too much about covering up. I created a more casual look by pairing it with denim and simple stilettos and the Flatiron…
