What’s New to MSL in 2018

MSL

2018 has already been a doozy: it’s raining in Los Angeles, which is a virtual enigma, the Northeast endured what they called the #bombcylone (a glorified name for a snowstorm) and Tonya Harding the (sympathetic?) antagonist of I, Tonya and the 1994 Winter Olympics, attended the Golden Globes, sitting opposite Margot Robbie.  Might I say: WTF? Ok I digress.  With the new year comes new ideas, excitement and that somewhat double edged word: resolutions.  Personally, I don’t do cut and dry resolutions for myself but rather push myself to continue working towards goals that I’ve previously started or am going to start. Since I started MSL in 2013, I made a commitment to myself to continue my blog and beyond that to add new elements to it. With that said here are some content series…

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

Well it's the last day of 2017 and it's been such an incredible year that brought so many exciting opportunities and life changes!  It's hard to believe that I started the year living in New York City and I am now ending the year, living a new life in Los Angeles (with a man and a pup!).  (Although, I'm currently ringing in the New Year in St. Louis as you may have seen on my Instagram!) As I begin 2018 in my home state of California, I am very excited to pursue more personal and professional endeavors. As I close out this short New Year's post, I want to thank all the My Stiletto Life readers for all the support and kind words I have seen all year on the blog itself and on…

Holiday Gift Ideas

holiday gift ideas

How is everyone spending these holidays weeks? Still in need of some holiday gift ideas (and if you're still looking for something to wear this holiday season check out this post!)? Well before we dive into all the great presents and gifts there are out there I’m recapping my Sunday! Sunday was my boyfriend’s birthday and I surprised him by getting our Christmas tree (his tradition is to get it on his bday every year) and having a little tree decorating breakfast with his brother and seven year old nephew, which was a really fun way to spend the morning. Sidebar: let me just say: if you go to a Christmas tree lot and there is a man standing there grabbing his private areas several times and making untoward gestures while you’re trying to…

Holiday Wear for 2017

holidays

It's that time of the year again, where holiday parties are upon us (I already went to one this past weekend!) and you're most likely looking for the best holiday wear for 2017.  I've already picked up some great pieces for the holidays and I have a few go to online retailers that I am very loyal to for various reasons: Fast Shipping Asos and Shopbop have two day shipping: Asos you can pay $19.99 for a year of two day shipping (totally worth it!).  Shopbop you can link with your Amazon Prime account and get 2 day free shipping but even without that they offer 3 day free shipping!  Nordstrom is fairly fast as well but they don't offer a specific program. Free Returns I won't shop somewhere that doesn't offer free returns --…

Venice Beach

Venice Beach nights -- what a treat.  As much as I miss having a crisp morning with a hot coffee, during the holiday season in NYC,  romping around Venice Beach, in November, in a slip dress, barefoot, is sort of unbeatable.  Venice is seriously adorable from the main drag of Abbot Kinney with its cluster of shops and colors to the beach boardwalk, there is so much to do and see. While I was there I met up with blogger pal Laurie Ferarro of The Rue Collective while she was out in LA for a visit from freezing NYC and we shopped on Abbot Kinney, drank coffee, and walked the palm tree lined streets. Also...you may have noticed that the slip dress in the below photos has clearly become my favorite dress (I tend…
