Happy Weekend Loves! Time for another shopping list of what I am currently lusting after! Three of these pieces are actually from Old Navy (I’m obsessed with all of their fall goodies). ‘Sleep Is My Cardio‘ is what I plan on wearing to the gym just to piss my trainer off on cardio days I can be a wise guy every now and again.
These black coated skinny jeans fit like a glove and are a go to of mine for fall. Great for the office or even just a night out. The black floppy hat is something that made me believe in love at first site…it’s just gorgeous (I’ll actually be shooting looks with it this weekend…so that lust became a must which became a reality)!
Hello Lover…I’m having a Carrie Bradshaw moment today with this ‘Carrie-esq’ ‘J’adore’ look…if you are a Sex & The City fanatic like myself, you most likely remember that fabulous tulle skirt ensemble paired with a ‘J’adore Dior’ tee. While my tee may not be Dior, in my mind…I am Carrie. I borrowed this tulle skirt from my blogger gal pal Sarah…I saw it and right away envisioned Carrie aka SJP. I have always been a huge Sex & The City fanatic. I dream of being proposed to with a pair of Manolo’s and just having ‘a really big closet’…it may be a fantasy but hey a girl has to dream every now and again right? My clutch and shoes are both Michael Kors. I love the snakeskin print to add a little edge to this ultra girly look and of course I had to wear some pink bowed pumps to really make a statement and dress like Carrie. Unfortunately these beauties are no longer available but I found similar ones from Paris Hilton.My tee is far from Dior…it’s from Old Navy…so I am Carrie Bradshaw on a budget I also had to add a little bling with this pink and blue statement necklace!Now if you don’t mind, I’m off to plan some of my outfits for some weekend dress up Time for more outfit shoots and I am heading out to the vineyards Sunday to go grape stomping and make some wine…I don’t think Carrie would wear this to stomp grapes but hey who knows :p Shop My Look<3
Happy Thursday Loves! Time to share my current beauty obsessions with you guys. I am constantly trying new beauty products in search of the ‘end all’ for my skin and makeup routine…I think recently, I just about found it! To start, I am a firm believer that your scent remains in the room well after you exit…what does that mean? Make it memorable, and with Juicy Couture’s new ‘Gold Couture’ fragrance…you are definitely bound to leave a scent that is sensual, sultry and berry berry good (had to make a slight witty line…the perfume has a fabulous hint of wild berries).
My next obsession? Kypris Beauty products. I LOVE the Kypris Beauty Elixir 1…made with 1,000 organic Bulgarian Roses (perfect for Melissa Rose huh? My middle name is Rose…little fun fact), this elixir helps provide the right amount of moisture to aid in perfecting that dewy complexion us ladies are always after! The other fabulous potion I tried? The Antioxidant Dew. It helps rebalance your complexion…something that is well needed after all the pollution this fashionista experiences commuting in and out of NYC! I’ve discovered over the past few months that the key to flawless makeup really is healthy skin. That means using products that help well moisturize your skin all over…that’s why Boots Botanics Deeply Moisturizing Body Lotion and Boots Botanics Deeply Moisturizing Hand Cream are my current goto.
Once you make your skin baby soft, it’s all about fixing up that complexion. Boots No 7 CC Cream and Youthful Eye Serum are great ways to help remove discoloration, under eye bags and to brighten up your skin…making it ready for makeup application.
Any gal who loves makeup as much as me knows the struggle in finding the perfect concealer (to cover those pesky spots that all your skin products just can’t get rid of) and a great mascara for those fake looking lashes. Boots No 7 Stay Perfect Blemish Cover and Boots No 7 Stay Perfect Mascara are the answers to my prayers. I have such a hard time find makeup that actually ‘STAYS’ and these products really do!
Happy Wednesday Loves! Sharing a new fall look today with brand new nude lace up booties and a fabulous maroon skater skirt from Pink Basis! You guys know how much I love showing a little leg, but with this outfit it’s an easy summer to fall transition look…the weather in NYC isn’t quite cool enough to begin layering but it also isn’t nearly 100 degrees like the heat wave currently happening in LA, so what is a gal to do? Wear this look Duh! I love this maroon skater skirt…maroon is becoming my favorite hue for fall! I paired it with an embroidered ivory peplum top from Kohls (similar available from Forever 21) and I am ready to head off for a day filled with appointments. I am obsessed with this beige studded tote from Last Call Neiman Marcus…unfortunately it already sold out! (Can you see why? It looks identical to the Valentino Rockstud Tote) I found a similar tote…minus the studs from Fossil at Nordstrom! These booties are everything…comfortable, stylish and totally on point in regards to fall footwear trends. I think nude booties are going to be my signature shoe for the season. Had to layer a little bling with this look…of course some white on white action. A white triangle necklace matches with everything and adds a statement to any look. I don’t know about you, but this week has already exhausted me and it is only Wednesday…I’ve been working on some exciting new projects and have been updating my Poshmark closet…have your checked it out? If you haven’t you should, I’m selling everything from designer to everyday casual…Looks For Less in the palm of you hand Shop My Look<3
Happy Tuesday Loves! As you know, I have a slight obsession with bright ‘pops of color’, so it appears that in terms of jewelry, I have met my match…Kendra Scott! After seeing their fabulous set up and scoring this gorgeous druszy ring at the Reward Style party, I decided to stop by their showroom to check out all they have to offer!
Below each photo are the products…click each direct to purchase
I’m loving all the fab druszy jewels they have! They are so unique and if you ask me are a little ‘edgy’!
Their gold cuffs are great for fall…wear one to make a statement at the office!
Kendra Scott isn’t just known for great jewels, but also for their jewelry / cosmetic / travel pouches as well. The zipper is 14k plated gold and they are the cutest accessory!
I LOVE the Kendra Scott delicate bangles and rings for Spring 2015! You can stack them or wear them alone. Easy, chic and a hint of color…what else does a gal need? The pieces below are similar and currently available.
This is their winter collection / 70’s inspired disco vibe collection. The purple earrings in the middle kind of remind me of a disco ball!
I am obsessed with their ‘sea foam’ green pieces…aren’t they amazing?!
Last but not least, you can’t forget Kendra Scott’s signature ‘Skylar‘ earring, their signature ‘Danielle‘ earring and their signature ‘Alexandra‘ earring…both make amazing statements and celebrities have been swooning over them…I mean can you blame them?!
While all the jewels were exciting, I must say one of my favorite parts of visiting the Kendra Scott showroom was the lovely reps from the company…they truly have that southern charm (the company originates from Austin, Texas). They truly love the product and the fact that Kendra is an independent business woman who just came up with this massive idea is inspiring!
Happy Monday Loves! Finally about time I begin to wear some pants…what? I love skirts and dresses…don’t hold that against me! One fall essential I am in love with is ‘Tuxedo’ pants. These crisp white jeans with a simple black stripe on the side are great to wear to the office while also looking stylish and sexy! My jeans are from Kohls, unfortunately they are no longer available so I found similar ones from Neiman Marcus. I paired them with a simple black tank from Target…I always get hot in the office and during my morning commute so a tank is necessary. My classic black suede pumps are from Steve Madden. I’m still not sick of this black reptile print tote from Neiman Marcus Last Call…I love that fact that it looks like a Celine but for a fraction of the cost! My initial pendant was a BaubleBar sale find…you can never go wrong with a simple initial. On a side note I can’t believe how long and blonde my hair has gotten…that’s what you get from sunshine and summer activities…pretty sure the sunlight has given me natural highlights, my mom actually thought I got my hair colored! Shop My Look <3
Happy Friday Loves! Finally time for a new outfit post and in true casual Friday fashion…I’m rocking a casual beginning of fall look I’ve had this Old Navy beige cardigan for two years now and I absolutely love it! It’s comfy, matches with everything and in a way pulls any look together. While denim shorts scream summer (what can I say I really didn’t want summer to end), pairing them with a fall cardigan can transform it into the perfect September look. My white silk cami is from Top Shop, it’s my go to for nights out or just about any occasion because it’s simple, comfortable and always makes me feel sexy! I love this shot my brother got…he’s a creative one when he wants to be These rope wedges are from Payless and are one of the most comfortable pairs of wedges I own. Sorry but this is my favorite bag pretty much…Rebecca Minkoff Affair bag…one of my NYFW go to’s
My statement necklace is from Prima Donna…let me tell you it actually weighs a ton haha but I suppose the statement it makes is worth it. It is getting cooler in NY so I suppose I have to put the denim shorts away soon…I simply hate pants (no not in that way) but in general…I’m a skirts, shorts, dresses kind of gal! Shop My Look <3
Happy Thursday Loves! NYFW has been insanely busy…between shows, parties and events my head has been spinning! One of my favorite shows / presentations so far has been ‘Fashion Shenzhen‘.
The runway show held at Lincoln Center and the showcase held at the Hudson Hotel both showcased different Chinese designers: Lizzy, Ellassay and Haiping Xie…while I may not be able to pronounce all those correctly (my apologies) I definitely can tell you that I loved each and every last piece!
First things first…I am in LOVE with Lizzy…the Chinese Designer behind these beyond gorgeous dresses that took everyone at the show’s breath away. Embellishments, tulle, crystals and more were all used throughout the collection…I seriously want to wear one of these beauties to the Met Gala…that is when I am invited one day
This mermaid dress was a stunner…the photo doesn’t even do it justice…I’m obsessed <3
Next up…simple, chic and elegant with Ellassay…
I love the classic silhouettes and the ability to wear them to work! Last but not least…Haiping Xie…filled with tons of color, unique prints, textures and even some interesting frills and thrills in terms of attachments! And here are some shots from the presentation which featured the designers above as well as some additional Chinese designers…the print on the skirt below and bag I am in love with!
How unique is this look…I feel like I would see this ensemble in London back in the day.
A little punk rock moment…
My favorite color…purple! What do you guys think of the collections? Comment below <3
Happy Wednesday Loves! Finally sharing my NYFW diary part 2 from my day two adventures at NYFW! It was a busy day…there was the Storefront X RePop Room Brunch where I stopped by to see my friend Marrin Costello and her fabulous jewels…then I was off to Fashion Shenzen a runway show at Lincoln Center showcasing different Chinese designers and their impeccable designs. After visiting Lincoln Center I was off to the Kendra Scott showroom where I tried on some bling and even got to keep a beauty as well Lastly, the day wouldn’t be complete without an outfit change for my last event with Simple Skin Care and Caravan Studios at the Carlton Hotel! Wouldn’t be a brunch without starting off with a little green juice…in a shot glass I love Marrin’s pieces they are gorgeous with the druszy’s…I’m slightly obsessed. I actually connected with Marrin Costello through my blogger gal pal Cara…that’s what I love about blogging…networking and always meeting new people and making new friends, especially friends that are talented jewelry designers Next up Fashion Shenzen. They had a show at Lincoln Center and a presentation at the Hudson. Personally, while I love a classic runway show…for blogging purposes, presentations are so much nicer to snap pictures at! After some fashion came some more bling at the Kendra Scott showroom. At the Reward Style party, Kendra Scott gifted bloggers this gorgeous druszy ring and invited us to their showroom the next day for some more sparkle…naturally I had to take a photo of my bling. After getting blinged out it was time for an outfit change and I was off to the Caravan and Simply Skin Care party that took place in the penthouse of the Carlton Hotel on….Madison Avenue, Missy made her way back to Madison ;)!
