TGIF Loves! What a week…between starting bartending classes, working on new blog projects and prepping for a busy weekend in NYC (I’m attending Simply Stylist and a blogger brunch!), I have been swamped! Did you know how many different types of shots there are? Because trust me…I sure as hell didn’t know there were shots named ‘Girl Scout Cookie’ or ‘China White’ but I’m learning slowly but surely…when I called to register for the course, I told the instructor I rarely drink (rare for a 22 year old I know) his response? Don’t worry my classes will drive you to drink…lol…quite the sense of humor let me tell ya!Today’s Lord & Taylor look is one that you can wear to the bar, club or just out to dinner…whatever your Friday night adventure is…this look is sure to turn heads. I am never one to shy away from showing a little leg, so this white quilted mini skirt is not just comfortable but also sexy for a night out. Once again rocking my Kendra Scott druszy ring…the perfect jewel to wear to make a statement any time! I am obsessed with this black faux leather top, also from Lord & Taylor. It’s sexy, stylish and super comfortable…a win/win for all! Now to break down my lower half…my nude chain crossbody bag is from Coach, but I found a similar bag from Tory Burch (I also found a similar bag from Vince Camuto on sale at Bloomingdales here). I love an oversized gold cuff to add a little something to any outfit. I’m not sure who makes this cuff or even where I got it…that’s what happens when your wardrobe can no longer even fit in your room…oops (insert monkey emoji covering it’s eyes here). My nude open toe booties are actually from the Simply Vera Vera Wang collection at Kohls…unfortunately they are from over a year ago and are no longer available, so I found a similar style from Chinese Laundry here. My necklaces are both from Nordstrom…similar styles I found are here (star necklace) & here (skull necklace) & my mirrored aviators are here (get them on sale this weekend at Bloomingdales). Now I’m off to go learn some more cocktails and a little flair Wish me luck…I’m a total clutz…I really picked a fun adventure to begin didn’t I!
Happy Wednesday Loves! What a week…in addition to a crazy amount of press appointments I decided to venture out and take bar tending classes…you know so I can finally be the life of the party haha kidding…but really…I’m scared, nervous and also a tad bit excited! Here’s to hoping I don’t make some horribly tasting cocktails! But besides this new little venture today I want to share my favorite fall beauty and fashion trends featuring Advanced Mineral Makeup and Ralph Lauren.My friends over at Advanced Mineral Makeup sent me their amazing ‘Luxury Lip Gloss‘ that comes in multiple tints and it is music to my lips. I LOVE this lip gloss because A) It is long lasting and B) Because it feels thicker than a typical gloss but not as heavy as a lip stick…it is the perfect in between! Mascara is always a difficult find…especially one that doesn’t clump and makes your lashes look semi-fake. Well the ‘Luxury Lash Mascara‘ is everything I want and need from a mascara and more! Smudge-proof, light weight and long lasting…now that’s what I’m talking about!While I was testing out these beauty products I got a little distracted by the October issue of Vogue along with the Ralph Lauren Fall 2014 Collection insert issue. I swear everything he creates is just stunning so I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces with you!
Happy Tuesday Lovers! Today I am the lady in the red…wearing Vince Camuto of course! I’m OBSESSED with this red wool coat for fall from Lord & Taylor. When I saw it in the store I fell in LOVE…like heart racing, butterfly kind of love…can you see why?It’s cozy, comfortable and eye catching…the perfect piece to turn heads this fall! A great coat is always essential for fall and this one takes the cake. As you all know, I love a pop of color and this baby does the trick! Let me flash ya all…under this great coat I’m rocking a black chiffon cami dress from Nordstrom. I love the fit and how it can be dressed up or down for any occasion…got to love a LBD! On a side note, the inside of this red coat is leopard print pattern…can you say AMAZINGGG! My taupe suede clutch is a clearance find from Last Call Neiman Marcus. A simple clutch is always a must, especially in a neutral hue that can be worn from season to season like taupe. Mirrored aviators once again…sorry not sorry. These babies are great to match with red, orange or yellow shades because of the warm mirrored tints. My black bedazzled T strap pumps are from Nine West, but I found a similar style from Michael Kors here. I love these pumps because they aren’t just full of glitz and glam…but they are also comfortable…bonus! I definitely plan on wearing this coat into Manhattan for all of my press previews this week…the Big Apple needs a little extra red don’t ya think? Shop My Look <3
Happy Monday Lovers! I had quite a busy weekend filled with outfit shoots, Long Island adventures and some fun new blog concepts…but I think I should run some of them by you guys to see what you think…but first let’s break down this little look I’m rocking today. Gingham is a great print for fall…especially when it’s affordable like this button down top from Target. My top and pale pink skirt are both Target Style finds…now that’s guilt free shopping! What I love about gingham is that you can dress it up or dress it down depending on the occasion…I love it layered with jeans for a casual look or for a more dressed up look, simply pair it with a light weight skirt like I did here. My monogrammed clutch is from GiGi NY and it comes it countless hues and is a great going out back that adds a pop of color to any ensemble. Pale pink pumps?…Umm yes! These beauties are from NYLA…unfortunately they are a bit too small on me so you can actually score these straight from my Poshmark closet for a fraction of the actual retail cost. Once again rocking my Kendra Scott druszy ring…I think I am slightly obsessed…oops! Now to share my idea with you guys…it seems that the wave of the future or rather now is being a video vixen (not in THAT way…) but rather stepping in front of the camera and chatting away rather than just taking pretty pictures. So after some talking with my brother aka my photographer we came up with an idea of doing an ongoing video series to accompany my blog…what do you guys think? Are videos the way to go? What kind of videos would you like to see?! Share your thoughts with me PLEASEOn a side note…I love this pose above and this pose below…gone with the wind fabulous captured = win for Missy <3 Shop My Look<3
TGIF! It’s been a long week my loves and the shot above shows exactly how I feel now…ready for a nice, relaxing weekend…sometimes after a hectic week it’s necessary to be able sit back and just live in the moment (so hard to do not going to lie…but I try). Fall means many things to me…one of my favorites? It’s finally time to wear my beloved faux fur vests from Karen Kane like the black one I am wearing today! This vest is no longer available from Karen Kane but I found a similar one from Express here. My white button down blouse and reptile printed pants are both from Old Navy! They are from a year ago so the styles have changed, so I found great alternatives from GUESS and Banana Republic here & here.Now to break down my shoes, accessories and bling…My black leather bucket bag is vintage Coach from my mama…I tend to enjoy raiding her handbag collection every now and then…oops (insert monkey covering it’s face emoji…can I just say I wish emojis could be inserted on the computer and within my blog posts…they would totally add to the tone of the post right?!). Payless always has me covered when it comes to footwear trends on a budget. Open toe booties with a wooden heel are very ‘in’ for fall…they are the perfect casual shoe for fall and I got them for a steal. I found similar ones here from Dolce Vita since I believe these Payless ones are no longer available.My gold Kendra Scott ‘Ivy’ bracelet was a gift from the Kendra Scott team at NYFW at the Reward Style party and it is stunning as you can see. I never tend to wear red nail polish but I caved in for one week only and I’m kind of warming up to the idea of red nails…for some reason red nail polish reminds me of something an older mature woman would wear…I’m mature butttt I have my immature moments Now I’m off to some weekend planning…and outfit shoot planning…blogging never sleeps and apparently neither do I haha But when you do something you love it doesn’t feel like work right?Shop My Look<3
Happy Thursday Loves! I often times take a bunch of outfit photos at a time and they pile up within my iPhoto Library sometimes not getting touched for weeks…this look is one of them. While browsing through tons of looks I came across this shoot from over a month ago…yea…I’m running a little behind oops! This shoot was a favorite of mine and not just because of this chic black and white ensemble but because of the great laughs that happened while Sarah shot me! The gal can always make me laugh which was a refreshing change from my typical serious poses I do when my brother shoots my photos. As you can see…we had a little bit of fun My black and white color blocked button down top was from a little boutique on Long Island, but I found a great top from Karen Kane here (one of my favorite designers) that looks just like this one! My black skater skirt with faux leather trim is from Kohls I believe but I found a similar one from Nordstrom here. I love a simple black skater skirt for fall…they can be dressed up or down and are flattering on almost everyone!My black reptile tote is from Last Call Neiman Marcus…I’ve been wearing it well before fall began and it will never go out of style…black is always in! I love these nude lace up booties that the team at Pink Basis so nicely sent me! Unfortunately they are no longer available, but I found a similar alternative from Nine West at around the same price point. Once again rocking my favorite Kendra Scott ring from the Reward Style NYFW party…isn’t it gorgeous…I’m a bit obsessed <3Now for a fabulous outfit out take…cue laughter…I was celebrating my love for blogging…or Sarah was telling a really funny joke…either or this happened. Shop My Look<3
Happy Wednesday Loves! This look features two of my favorite fall trends…cobalt blue and metallic…what more can a fashionista ask for? The lovely team at ShopMieux sent me these Zara metallic blue platform heels which are super comfortable and the perfect night out shoe (similar from ASOS here). I figured why stop the metallic moment at my footwear…why not add a metallic bag as well like my silver clutch from Carolinna Espinosa (similar from ShopBop here…use code FRIENDS25 for 25% off your purchase!). Now that we broke the metallics down…let’s get to the rest of this Humpday ensemble My cobalt blue blouse is from LC By Lauren Conrad AND you can score it now from my closet on Poshmark for a fraction of the cost! Like I mentioned earlier, from the bag to the shoes…I am loving metallic for fall…can you blame me? Metallic accessories, in my opinion really pull the look together…they add a little sparkle and shine (as if the sleeves on this top didn’t have enough of it..) and they can match with almost anything! My black scuba skirt is from Target, but I found a similar one available now from Nordstrom here. And to stay within the blue hues…mirrored aviators, my go to accessory! A little fun fact…while shooting this look at my local Tanger Outlets (what can I say why not shop & shoot at the same time haha!) a group of guys walked by and screamed out ‘Looking Good’ as I’m sitting there pretending to be a model…my brother aka my photographer just shook his head in embarrassment…sibling love at it’s finest Shop My Look<3
