That Off the Shoulder Top

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…

Have you Stocked up on the Best Fall Colors?

Best Fall Colors

Fall is here and that means warm autumnal colors are in!  I have some exciting plans for travel coming up this fall...post on that soon, but in the meantime I am working on updating my wardrobe for this transitional season and recommending the best fall colors. Fall is a great season to play with those rich colors.  There are days when it can be warm and other times when there is a chill in the air.  For these kinds of sporadically warm and cold days I prefer to mix and match my summer and fall pieces, as I have done below.  I combined a summer skirt with an olive green top.  The skirt is cream so it works very well with fall colors.  I was lucky, the day I wore this look it happened to…

Wanna Brunch with J. Lo?

Brunch Guide NYC

You may be thinking: what do brunch and J. Lo have in common?  Right.  Well, normally I wouldn't know, but it just so happens that I was out brunching myself last weekend (as I do) at Laconda Verde and spotted (with my quick celebrity eye: seriously I have a gift for spotting celebrities) Ryan Seacrest at a two top.  Initially, I was pretty excited just to see Ryan Seacrest and then as I looked more closely I noticed that he was sitting across from a top knot wearing brunette woman.  Now there is only one diva who slays a top-knot bun like no other: yes, it was indeed J. Lo.  She was dressed exactly as you would think: bodycon dress, hair slicked into a top knot bun and looking flawless.  I was giddy.  Ryan…

NYFW (and Life?!) Survival Guide

NYFW

Surviving NYFW is a tricky task! So, every year, I develop a new plan of attack. In this plan, I include every tip, trick, and tool I might need to hop from show-to-show and party-to-party like a boss. (Wearing: Lovers and Friends Dress, See by Chloe shoes -- since we're moving into fall try these booties, Marc by Marc Jacobs purse.) Flats I’m a stiletto gal, but I always carry a pair of sandals or flats in my purse. They are key for making it through the day without having to amputate a foot! Luckily, fancier flat sandals and flatforms are trending this year, which means one can be fashionable and comfortable (gasp!) at the same time. However, since it’s the best time of the year to show off that expensive pair of Louboutins I’ve never worn—and…

Staying Cool in Summer Dresses

Wow -- it is hot in NYC and lately, the AC unit is my best friend.  Luckily, I have been able to wear all my perfectly lightweight summer dresses to minimize the temps!  Banana Republic just came out with this blue pleated pocket dress that I'm wearing in the photos below and it's the perfect summer dress for several occasions.  I have been opting to wear it to work mostly.  It can be tough to find a dress that is work appropriate (and you know you've seen some dubious work outfits) and one that is still cooling in the summer. I initially was drawn to its rich blue color but I also enjoy its loose fit and length: making it easy for all the day to day activities. In general I would say that Banana Republic…
