Bright beaded pom pom sandals that lace up to the knees are so going to be the must-have item of the summer. They’re the perfect addition to a beach day look or to your favorite city sundress. Luckily, for all of you sun worshipers and aspiring California girls, there are pom pom sandals in every price range. These are two of my favorites.
Now that the weather is getting warmer, but not exactly hot, it’s time to trade in knee high boots for shorter booties. Luckily, when it comes to shopping for ankle boots, there’s a pair for every budget. Here are my top shortie splurge and steal picks for early spring.
Though it still doesn’t feel much like spring in NYC, the season is in full bloom in the store windows with florals, sundresses and bright colors. As much as I love my over the knee boots, I simply can’t wait to trade them in for a pastel pair of heels or some strappy sandals. Whether you’re in the market for a spring neutral or something a little bolder, here are a few of my favorites:
This time of year, one of the many things I wish for is a fabulous designer pair of suede over the knee boots. I just love how they can be sexy without revealing anything at all. Plus, they’re super warm and go with almost everything. This fashionable dichotomy is what makes OTK boots a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. Lately, I’ve had my eye on the “Lowland” over the knee boots by Stuart Weitzman. However, with a price tag of over $700, they are regretfully not a part of my winter wardrobe.
Knowing that a number of fellow fashionistas were being faced with the same footwear dilemma, I decided to search for a more affordable pair. During my search, I found a practically identical pair for nearly a third of the price at Goodnight Macaroon. Happy holidays (and shopping) to boot lovers everywhere!
The best way to prepare for the holidays is by finding out what’s hot for the season. Between shopping, entertaining and finding the perfect dress for that Christmas party or New Year’s Eve soiree, the holidays can often be more stressful than jolly. Luckily, I got the scoop on everything that’s hot this holiday at the Celebrate in Style event hosted by Single Edition Media and InStyle Magazine at the The Glasshouses in Chelsea. With braids, red lips, bold eyes, bejeweled sweaters and pieces that transition perfectly from day to night all on trend for Holiday 2014, it’s going to be an excellent holiday season! After the event, it was great to come home with Rap Protein Gummies, Beautiful Textures hair products, Alassis Candles, holiday home accessories from Balsam Hill and much more. Here are just a few of my fav picks for the 2014 holiday.
No holiday get-together is complete without wine. As an avid white wine drinker, I’m now a big fan of Brancott Estate’s Flight Song Wine in Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc. Not only do they have a smooth finish, they’re also crafted to be 20% less calories. Happy Holidays to me!
As a vegetarian, I’ve recently become a huge fan of Gardein and their line of delicious meatless foods. Choosing not to eat meat can often make you feel left out over the holidays, especially on Thanksgiving. But, Gardein’s meatless choices are so tasty that even meat lovers will flock to them. With less fat and calories than their meat-filled counterparts, they’ll satisfy dieters too. Serve Gardein at your next holiday party and you’ll make everyone happy.

According to the Creative Director of Bulova Watches, winter white is going to be hot for women’s watches this holiday season. After seeing this stunning watch, I can see why.
