There’s nothing more glamours than freshly fallen snow in Central Park. Recently Winter Storm Jonas turned it into a magical winter destination clad in over two feet of snow. When walking through the park the day after the storm, I felt like I was vacationing at a ski resort in Aspen rather than strolling through Midtown Manhattan.
The necklace is from Rocksbox, a subscription service where a stylist provides you with unlimited jewelry samples for $19 a month. You can buy the pieces you want just by holding onto them and send back what you don’t. It’s basically the Birchbox of jewelry. Sign up using the code “aspiringsocialitexoxo” and you can get one month free. Renting jewelry is truly the way of the future.
Fall is hands down the best time of year to be in New York City. Between the cool, yet comfortable air, changing leaves and holiday finds just entering the stores, you simply can’t beat Autumn in New York. A while ago, I came across this fab fall trench by bebe at a random store on 45th St. At the time, I was holding off on buying a trench coat until I found one that made me feel like I was strolling through the streets of London and this was it. I just love how the contrasting sleeves and asymmetrical zipper make it one of the most fun and unique pieces in my wardrobe.
Today, May 12th beginning at noon, bebe is having an awesome promotion going on in stores all across the USA. All you have to do is stop by a participating bebe store anytime after 12 noon, take a picture of yourself in your favorite look (which is always more accurate than a mirror,) and upload it to the bebe Facebook Page for fans to vote on the best look.
Aside from how much I need to go shopping for summer clothes, this contest made me realize just how much any beach-going socialite needs a Vespa in her arsenal of accessories. Not only are they ultra European, but you can hop from place to place quickly as your hair blows in the summer breeze on one of these fab bikes. Though I regret that I have a previous engagement and will not be able to participate in this competition, I trust that the Vespa will go to a very stylish home. In the meantime, I will just have to add the Vespa S 50 4V to the list of items I aspire to own.
