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.
When it comes to dressing up a pair of jeans for a day of shopping or a little black dress for a dinner party, nothing is more fun than a faux fur leopard print coat. Since leopard prints (especially coats) aren’t really meant for everyday wear, this isn’t something I would recommend splurging on unless of course you have deep pockets. Steal or splurge, a leopard faux fur will be the most Samantha Jones item in your wardrobe.
After experiencing snow in October for the first time ever on Saturday, it’s safe to say a crazy winter is most likely upon us this season. Which means every socialite needs a good pair of stylish winter boots. What could be better than a pair of boots from Canada? Originating in Canada, Cougar Boots are made to be worn through the harshest of elements with the most fashionable feel. As a genuine Canadian brand, all of the packaging is in both English and French. Since I’m all about multitasking, I’m starting to see Cougar Boots as a means to learn French while shoe shopping. Which is great if you’re planning a trip to Vancouver anytime soon.
New York City isn’t exactly the great outdoors, but that doesn’t mean that fashionistas living in the Big Apple don’t need heavy duty winter boots to navigate the city’s icy streets during the upcoming months. New York is a walking city so shoes are very important. I’ve never seen such great waterproof and temperature technology. With Cougar Boots, your feet are guaranteed to be warm, dry, and stylish. I’m so excited to be the most stylish/hottest socialite in the snow in winter.
Disclaimer: I was gifted a pair of Mirage Cougar Boots (a $250 value.) Thanks Cougar Boots! I love them and look forward to wearing them everywhere this winter!
I was pleasantly surprised to see that the craze for plaid blouses and shirtdresses have made their way from last winter into this one. From Bloomingdales to Forever 21, rustic-inspired plaids have returned to the mainstream to keep us warm and stylish as the temperature drops. If you still think plaids are only for lumberjacks, remember that in high society nothing is ever as it seems. After all, a rustic Adirondack vacation in a so-called “log cabin” can have all the features of a 5-star hotel and more. For this reason, us New Yorkers choose to accompany plaids with our choice of leggings or skinny jeans tucked into over the knee boots. This uniquely spun mix of the metropolitan and the provincial is quickly becoming a classic among prepsters. I personally am in the market for a festive red plaid shirtdress to wear at my appearances at this year’s holiday parties.
For those of you looking to add a new plaid shirtdress to your wardrobe, consider this Gauze Plaid Shirt Dress (pictured left) by kensie on sale for only $39.00.
