and a Happy New Year....


Dress: Adrianna Papell | Leather Jacket: Dallin Chase | Booties: L.A.M.B.
Jewelry: Light Years NC | Lipstick: Nars Velvet Matte Train Bleu

I decided to go with this brown, silver and gold sequin number I picked up a Loehmanns a few years back. Come to think of it..everything I'm wearing is from Loehann's from the Jacket to the Booties! I also wore this dress during FNO! I guess for New Years I'm all about this green sequin number I wore last New Years.
Have a great and safe New Years Everyone!

My Favorite Looks of 2012

this year has been a crazy one. I've done things and worked with people I'd only dreamt about. i love this blog so much and i thank everyone who takes the time to check it out everyday! here's a little compilation of outfit posts from each month this year including fashion week.

some of the highlights of this year for me was being in a commercial as the Hottest Fashion Blogger for Toshiba Labtops and visiting Barcelona Spain. I also had a ball going to fashion week in February and September. I am still so grateful every season just to get an invite and I know without this blog that would not be possible. I had a blast shooting a thrift segment video and doing whole outfits of thrift. Some of my favorite posts were this one, this one and this one...for all different reasons (but mainly because I secretly love writing). I also got to interview Elizabeth Benzing Shoe designer for L.A.M.B. which was in itself amazing. Needless to say this year has been so amazing and I know next year will be even better! So thanks so much for reading!
follow your dreams.

baby its cold outside

actually its freezing outside. the weather in NYC today was super rainy with ice and snow. good thing I got out before the snow came in and finally rocked my Michael Kors faux fur coat that I got for a STEELE at Marshalls. I paired in down with a top I got from Loehmanns (on sale) and my favorite pair of boyfriend jeans. it is quite possible to look fashionable even when its cold but I also love my very ugly down black bubble coat as well. its keeps me warm but it looks like hell.

Bag: Marc Jacobs | Shoes: L.A.M.B | Lipstick: NARS Train Bleu | Glasses: Thrifted

I hope everyone's holiday was rocking! I had such a great time. I saw the movie Django Unchained and I really enjoyed it. I then had dinner with friends. It was a great Christmas for me. I am sooooo looking forward to New Years! I already have my outfit ready to go. I will keep you all posted on what I will be wearing...think sequins!

tis' the season.... to dress fancy

I wish I could be home for Christmas but this year it wasn't possible so I'm spending it with friends. I'm actually really excited because on Christmas day I am going to bake my favorite apple pie and head to the movies to see Django Unchained! I am just in love with Kerry Washington as in actress ever since I got hooked on Scandal (every Thursday my twitter fam and I go nuts!). When this time of year rolls around I gravitate toward classic elegant looks with a twist. So it's no surprise I pulled out my vintage jacquard bell skirt for the day!


Denim Top & Necklace: Forever 21 | Skirt: Vintage (Thrifted) | Booties & Clutch: Zara
Bracelet: Top Shop

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Holiday!
ps...these red booties are now on sale!

NEW IN: Quilted Black Leather Jacket

yes...anything quilted please. ever since I scooped up this quilted Missoni skirt from Loehmanns...I've been on the hunt for a quilted jacket. As if I need another black jacket but I couldn't contain myself. While doing some personal shopping for a client at Century 21 last week I came across this beauty! And its from one of my favorite lines P. Luca. It fits perfectly, looks stylish and is super warm. It was also less than $60, a definite fashion STEELE in my book!

beaded blazer

Well it isn't actually studded but it has that studded look with the use of beading. I love love love this beaded blazer from Its eye catching and unique and the perfect topper to any outfit. I wanted to let the jacket shine so I went with a basic all black look with my new H&M jeans and also a great eye popping pair of red pumps from as well.


Blazer: c/o | Top: Alternative | Jeans: H&M | Necklace: Light Years NYC
Shoes: c/o get them in Black or Red

I'm so glad I got this blazer in time for all the holiday parties coming up. it will be perfect over sequin dresses or over a nice full skirt and top. These are a pair of jeans I bought from H&M after doing my True to Size denim trial. They fit great and I love the distressed look too.
