    Black & Blue

    20131007-072827.jpg
    Happy Monday fashion lovers. Time to ‘Rise & Grind’ as Justin Timberlake would like to say and get back to the office.
    (If you haven’t seen his hilarious video with Jimmy Fallon about hashtags go watch it now!)

    Today is a very odd weather day in the Big Apple. It’s warm, muggy, humid and may or may not rain, so what’s a girl to do when she has no idea what they day will have in store for her? Go with a simple yet chic outfit of course!

    For this dreary Monday I decided to dig in the closet and wear something I haven’t laid my hands on in a while. This cobalt blue top with black puffed sleeves and embellishments from LC By Lauren Conrad. Hey, gotta start the week with a bang and what better way to do that than with some retro looking sleeves that are bedazzled?!

    I paired this fun top with a simple, black lace skirt from Target and classic black pumps from H&M. Voila! The perfect Monday ensemble, and if it happens to rains I have my trustee ballet flats in my bag at all times because when your a city girl, you have no clue how the day will turn out and there is always a new adventure!

    I also decided Mondays are meant to be bold, so I spiced up my look with a nice red lipstick called ‘Red Haute’ from Ulta. I love this color for day or night and red lips are a fall essential!

    Happy Monday!

    Recap of My First FFANY ‘Shoes On Sale’ Gala!

    20131003-081026.jpg20131003-080650.jpg
    Tuesday night marked the 20th Anniversary of one of the biggest charity events in the footwear industry, QVC Presents ‘FFANY Shoes On Sale’.
    Year after year my company partners with QVC to host an annual gala in which we sell high end designer shoes for half off the suggested retail price at the Waldorf Astoria and all the net proceeds go to Breast Cancer research and awareness. In addition to the gala, QVC sells thousands of other brands that donated free shoes to us on QVC Live & QVC.com. This year the LIVE broadcast is Oct. 10th from 6-9pm est (I will be live tweeting during the program on the @FFANYShoeShow twitter and Instagram accounts!)

    Back to my gala experience! What’s not to love…discounted shoes, a great dinner, star guests and of course tons of treats and dancing.

    This year out Spokesperson was Julianne Hough who hosted the evening and was an absolute doll! We also had guests like Beth Stern, Star Jones, Kristina Bowden and Aerin Lauder.

    As for my shoe scores? Yes, I snagged a pair of Gucci heels covered in Swavorski Crystals and a fantastic pair of Coach heels I’ve been lusting after for a while.

    The evening was fantastic and you can relive my evening with all my photos below!

    Be sure to Shop QVC.com the whole month of October to support the event and tune in to the live broadcast Oct. 10th from 6-9pm EST!

    Mani Monday OPI Style!

    20130930-105416.jpgIn my opinion you can’t start the work week off on the right foot without the perfect manicure and this week was no exception.

    Although I love the new dark fall colors, I had to rock a little pink with sparkles this week in preparation for my company’s huge charity event gala we have tomorrow night; QVC Presents ‘FFANY Shoes On Sale’!

    My company partners with QVC to sell designer shoes half off for the whole month of October and all the net proceeds go to breast cancer awareness and research! My nails had to be all about ‘Think Pink’ just like the event!

    This week’s color is one of my favorites: ‘Mod About You‘ from OPI. It always looks good with my bling and I love how it’s simple yet cute!

    For Details on the event & how to shop ‘Shoes On Sale’ and support a great cause:

    Feelin Warm & Fuzzy

    20130926-072659.jpgNothing is better to throw over your outfit on a brisk fall day than a cozy faux fur vest. The one I’m wearing in today’s OOTD is a recent buy from H&M. While typically I wait to score most things on sale this one I couldn’t resist.

    For a day you don’t feel like wearing a coat, a great faux fur vest is a mint option. It keeps you warm, looks stylish and doesn’t over heat you like a coat or jacket sometimes will.

    The key to finding a faux fur vest is to go for colors that can go with everything; neutrals, white, black, gray, beige. This way you get plenty of wear out of it and they make any ordinary outfit instantly glamorous.

    I threw this H&M vest over a casual black top from Target, LC By Lauren Conrad blazer, Target skinny jeans and my Old Navy black booties. It’s such a fun and easy look that I can dress up for work or wear on the weekends going shopping, I love it!

    Happy Thursday Fashion Lovers & Shop my OOTD below:

    Top: Target $10
    Blazer: LC By Lauren Conrad $28
    Jeans: Target $10
    Shoes: Old Navy $25
    Vest: H&M $60 20130926-072645.jpg20130926-072652.jpg

    Fall Ready, Mani Monday!

    20130923-173515.jpgI finally decided to venture out of my normal nail color palette to try something dark and devious for fall!

    This week’s mani Monday is all about ‘No More Film‘ from Essie. I not only love all the great colors Essie comes out with, but the creative names too. How long do you think it takes them to come up with ‘Butler please or Boom Boom Room’? That must be one hell of a job!

    As always, my bling helps show off the mani! Love my Michael Kors Gold link watch and my skinny Marc Jacobs bangle bracelet. They snazz up any outfit and compliment each other!

    I also had to take this opportunity to show off my fabulous black suede Steve Madden pumps. They are the perfect fall shoe and look exactly like Manolo Blahniks at the fraction of the price!
