Happy Thursday Loves AND Happy Fashion Week! As the fabulous Carrie Bradshaw once so eloquently said ‘Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future… this is known as Fashion Week.’ I for one am excited for all the chaos…events, parties, shows and tons of new fashion for Spring / Summer 2015! Don’t worry I’ll be sharing all of my fun times with you guys…While the chaos begins today, my appointments and events all start tomorrow! So while I am prepping myself for the festivities I figured I would share my picks with you…even if your not heading to Lincoln Center, these necessities are must haves for day to day activities and appointments!I LOVE my Graphic Image NY Planner…while all my event invitations are usually sent via e-mail, I still prefer to hand write down what I have going on so I don’t forget anything…I’m a firm believer in visualizing things rather than just allowing the notifications to pop up on my phone! My other essentials? A great black tote like this one from Last Call Neiman Marcus, my iPad Mini (for better organizing e-mails, photos etc.), some bling like my gold cuff and my gold Timex, portable Apple charger for my electronics, my Rebecca Minkoff business card holder (only suiting a monogram pouch to hold my MissyOnMadison cards) and last but not least…my mirrored aviators (told you I wasn’t loosing them for fall!).
Happy Wednesday Loves! I’m so happy to share this brand new look with you and to share the newest company I’ve partnered with, NYLA shoes! We know I have a slight shoe obsession and now I can share my favorite picks with you…the best part? They are stylish, affordable and 15% off when you use the code ‘MISSY15‘ at checkout! So I already shared where my fabulous heels are from (NYLA) so time to break down the rest of this girly look! My skirt was a Target clearance find. I love a great floral skirt for spring, summer or even fall…pair it with a cute blazer like my mint one from H&M and you are in business! My lace floral crop top is from Pink Basis…all the trendy pieces you want at affordable prices…now that’s what I like to hear…don’t you?! These NYLA shoes are called ‘Symphony‘…doesn’t that name just roll of the tongue? They come in black, blush and bone…the pair I am wearing are the ‘blush‘ tone. I love this hue for year round…don’t hesitate to wear certain colors just because it’s ‘out of season’ make it work with the proper ensemble!My bag? Of course it’s from Rebecca Minkoff…we know I’m a bit obsessed…what can I say when I find a designer I love I stick with them! It’s called the ‘Mini MAB Tote‘ and while I’m holding it has a little accessory in these photos, it also comes with a leather strap to wear it as a cross body…perfect for a night out! And sorry guys, but I had to rock some retro inspired sunnies for this look…yes I am slowly getting used to not wearing sunglasses for every outfit post, but sometimes they just make the look…like they did for this one 😉Shop My Look<3
Alright, Alright, Alright…Happy Monday Loves! If you couldn’t figure it out by the beginning of this post, my look today is 70’s inspired and figured I’d share some of my favorite lines from one of my favorite movies as well…Dazed & Confused!Nothing screams retro 70’s like bell bottom jeans…I got these Juicy Couture wide leg beauties when I was in high school and they still fit…isn’t that amazing? I kind of love when that happens! ‘That’s what I love about them high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.’ (Another Dazed & Confused quote from sir Matthew McConaughey) My houndstooth halter top is from ASOS. I’ve been dying to style it for a day time look…normally I pair it with a black bandage skirt for a night of dancing, and when I dug out my wide leg jeans I thought…PERFECT! My bag is the Rebecca Minkoff ‘Affair Bag’ from Neiman Marcus Last Call…never pay full price 😉 These black suede and wooden wedges which my mom calls ‘Buffalo Sandals’ are from Payless! Yes ladies, another Payless find <3 Still rocking the mirrored aviators…#sorrynotsorry. Sunglasses are year round accessories, right? Shop My Look Below<3
Happy Throwback Thursday Loves! I’m sharing another fab look from my trip to the Hamptons a few weeks ago…this neon Charlotte Russe shift dress, Rebecca Minkoff Affair Bag & my forever favorite Steve Madden Espadrille Wedges!If you are a Kardashian fan you will love to hear this…1) This photo was taken right in front of the Dash Pop-Up Shop in Southampton & 2) While I was shooting outfits in the village of Southampton, Kim, Kourtney, Kris & Khloe were having lunch, literally around the block from their pop-up shop…pretty awesome no? I knew it had to be them when I spotted guys with huge cameras everywhere…too bad they weren’t there to shoot me 😉 I love this neon dress. It’s simply gorgeous…while Charlotte Russe no longer has this exact dress I found a similar one from Dolce Vita at Zappos! My bag is from the fabulous Rebecca Minkoff…a cognac bag with neon trim? Count me in Rebecca 😉 In love with the ‘Affair’ bag! My wedges were a #FabFound find from Marshalls years ago. I love beige wedges for spring and summer…they are timeless and match with everything! That’s a win win in my book! I found a similar pair from Jildor by the fab Jimmy Choo (and they are on Sale!!)Every outfit…even neon requires some fab bling! I love layering jewels like my star necklace and skull pendant. Shop My Look Below <3
Happy Wednesday Loves! Ok, so this is really odd for me to admit and say, but I found this outfit shoot in my photo library from 2 months ago and boy was I shocked. Yes, I LOVE the red bag in this look and of course my outfit, but it kind of hit me about how big I was getting without realizing. You know when those pounds kind of creep up on you and your not sure how they got there? Well…looking at these photos and knowing what I know now, action had to happen and so glad it has. I went on a strict paleo diet and have been hitting the gym everyday and the pounds are shedding, inches shrinking and I’m feeling better than ever…these photos were a reminder of how far I’ve somewhat already come. Now to break down my look rather than my personal journey haha! My skirt is from Kohls…LC By Lauren Conrad to be exact. My top is from Nordstrom…a clearance find of course 😉 The real show stopper…my bag. It’s from Neiman Marcus Last Call…I loved the nude one so much that I bought it in red…great for my closet not so great for my bank account haha! However I rationalize it by the fact that it’s identical to the red rockstar tote from Valentino…at a fraction of the cost!My shoes are an oldie but a goodie from Coach. They go with everything and dress up any look! You can never go wrong with black strappy sandals…right ladies?Shop My Look <3
