5 Easy Ways to Freshen up Your Blog

5 Easy Ways to Freshen Up Your Blog

Spring Cleaning isn't just for your home or closet but it can certainly be applied to your blog as well!  Sorry I have been on a bit of a posting hiatus but I have actually been doing some blog spring cleaning of my own.  Since starting my blog in March 2013 (wow exactly 4 years ago) I have given the interface a few facelifts and lived in two cities!  I started my blog in San Francisco and about a year and a half later moved myself and the blog to New York City.  What I've noticed about blogging over the years is that you as a person don't just evolve but so does your blog.  As I continue to freshen up and renew My Stiletto Life, I'm sharing with you 5 easy ways to freshen…

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…

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…
