If there are two things I’m always shopping for it’s tops and jackets. While a basic black blazer is always great to have, they often wear out easily from overuse and aren’t always great for spring and summer looks. As for tops, my shirts tend to wear out way before my jeans do so I’m always on the lookout for casual chic tops.
I recently discovered Lyst, a London-based fashion site where you can shop thousands of designers in one place. It’s super easy to use so if I’m not careful I could stay on Lyst for hours. With summer coming into full swing, I’m finding that I’m low on tanks and tees so I’ve been surfing my favorite sites looking to build up my summertime wardrobe.
For those dressier days and cooler nights, I’ve also been on the lookout for new jackets and blazers. I’m still amazed how the right blazer can dress up any outfit. Since you should always diversify your wardrobe like you diversify your portfolio, you can never have enough colors.
I’m pleased to announce that I now have a legitimate reason to use Pinterest. One of my best friends and Pi Beta Phi little (it’s a sorority thing) Tracy has asked me to be her bridesmaid and I said “I Do”.
Being the amazing bride-to-be that she is, Tracy popped the question with this beautiful bridesmaid gift that I’m absolutely obsessed with. Way to go Tracy! A bride with this much taste is sure to pick out gorgeous bridesmaids dresses. So I’m even more excited to be there for my friend on the big day.
In anticipation for the wedding, I’ve started shopping for my favorite bridal gifts and accessories. Naturally, they’re all kate spade.
When it comes to fashion, there’s nothing more exciting than the latest innovation or more on trend than the ever evolving world of social media. This week Style Coalition will be hosting the 6th Annual Fashion 2.0 Awards honoring the best digital campaigns, platforms, social media strategies and innovations in the fashion industry. Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors lead with the most nominations, followed by DKNY and Rebecca Minkoff. This year the founders of BaubleBar are being honored with the annual Visionary Award, legendary designer Sam Edelman will be delivering the keynote and I’ll be there to see it all.
On Christmas morning, my stocking is always the first place I go. Nothing gets me more excited for the gifts under the tree than digging through a stocking full of makeup, mini accessories and more. Since I’m stuffing my Mom’s stocking this year, I’ve been on the prowl for the best stocking stuffers. If you’re looking to spend a pretty penny, kate spade and Henri Bendel have some of the cutest stocking stuffers I’ve ever seen. But, if you’re on a budget I found some amazing mini gifts at ULTA Beauty and Old Navy.
For your shopping pleasure, here are some of my favorites. In case you were wondering, you can absolutely get a stocking stuffer for yourself.
What I love most about fall is breaking out my skinny jeans, boots and light sweaters. The comfortable chill in the air, gets me thinking about Halloween and apple cider. The changing leaves also play a huge role in my style choices during the fall months. In celebration of fall, here’s my shopping list of fab fall fashions:
3. Camel Detachable Fur Lined Hood Contrast Trims Cape: I’ve always wanted a cape and this one is to die for! Fall is the best time to wear capes as they can be a stylish alternative to a light jacket. With winter being so cold, they often get covered up. So take the opportunity to show them off during fall.
4. Sephora Favorites Draw The Line: I love black eyeliner, especially liquid. However, I don’t wear it much in the summer because the heat often melts it off. So in the fall, I kind of go crazy with the liner.
5. Vince Camuto ‘Karita’ Over the Knee Boots: There’s nothing sexier for fall than over the knee boots. Aside from being sexy, they keep you warm and go with anything. With all the walking I do around NYC, I wore out my old pair last year. I’m dying to get these.
