    Chic In Pink!


    When I slipped into this outfit i fell in love…a flared out skirt from the Catherine Malandrino collection for Kohls, an elegant pink sweater, a chic quilted black bag and some classic black suede pumps…what more can a girl ask for to look classy, sassy and sophisticated!

    I love this skirt because of the lace insert details in the pleats…even though I bought this from Kohls (on clearance I may add!) you would never be able to tell that from looking at it. That’s something I love about designer collaborations with retail giants…although the clothing and accessories are created with a lower price point in mind, they never skimp on style or quality!

    In addition to swooning over this skirt, as always, I love a ‘Pop Of Color‘ (I think Brad Goreski is my fashion soul mate, bow tie and all) because even in the winter when women are seen wearing black from head to toe, I have a thing for standing out and making a statement 😉 so rocking this pink Old Navy sweater was a definite ‘Must‘!

    And the best way to pull any look together, especially once you add some color, is with simple accessories…a chic black Rebecca Minkoff bag and classy black pumps! You can never go wrong with black accessories!

    A Date Night ‘Must’ – Envelope Clutch


    My Perfect ‘Date Night’ Envelope Clutch from Target!

    While I am a big bag kind of girl (obsessed with my Louis Vuitton NeverFulls), there comes a time when a lady wants to be a little chic and carry a simply yet elegant bag that has just enough room for the ‘basic necessities’…I.E the Envelope Clutch!

    I believe the ‘Envelope Clutch’ is a fashion staple every fashionista should own. It’s simple and chic, perfect for your ID, Credit Card, Lipstick, Mascara and your keys…what else can a girl ask for? Now while I lust after some serious beauties…Prada, Chanel, Gucci, you get the idea, I certainly can’t afford them, so I scored my perfect clutch on clearance at Target months ago! Don’t fret, with the help of Polyvore, I rounded up some of my favorite animal print inspired clutches for the perfect girls night out or date night.

    While envelope clutches are chic no matter what the design, I love a fun animal print to bring out your inner diva! What fashionista doesn’t love a little animal print, come on!

    Here’s my roundup of great animal print clutches that are sure to spice up your night 😉

    Birthday Moment!


    Well in case you din’t know, today is my birthday! Yes people I’m the big 22…getting so old (yea right lol!) While I don’t have some big birthday bash like Howard Stern had planned, (by the way I’m a huge Howard fan, and that Birthday Show was insane)  I am excited to spend a nice night with my boyfriend and have a great dinner followed by a serious chocolate overload because we are heading to Max Brenner in NYC!

    If you haven’t heard of this place google it, I’ve passed it and dreamt of eating there and now is my chance 🙂 yay! They are known for their delicious desserts and gourmet chocolate and you know I’ll be having that as my appetizer, entree and dessert haha!

    Every year on my birthday I like to reflect back on where I am this year. At this time last year I turned 21…I was a senior in college, Free Lancing for Footwear News, single and working like a maniac two part time jobs to be able to afford my 21st birthday bash I was planning. This year: I’m a college graduate, I work full time in NYC doing a job I love and I have a great boyfriend who I love spending my time with…I’d say turning 22 has brought some pretty awesome things to me.

    Naturally, a birthday wouldn’t be a birthday without a cute outfit! Duh! So I’ll be wearing something similar to this look (Stay tuned for pictures from tonight’s outfit & full details on this look!) I found these Michael Kors shoes on clearance at Lord & Taylor and fell in love! Can’t wait to have my Carrie Bradshaw moment tonight in these beauties! 🙂

    Which brings me to the best birthday gift I got from my parents, my own Canon camera perfect for blogging 🙂 Thanks mom and dad! Can’t wait to snap pictures all over the place! Now just to find the perfect camera bag…hmmm always thinking of things to shop for 😉

    SuperBowl Sunday BBM Style!


    Happy SuperBowl Sunday everyone! Now while I am not the biggest sports fan except for the occasional Knicks game I end up watching because of my boyfriend, the SuperBowl is something I think every American watches because come on…do you want to be the only person at work the next day not knowing what funny commercials aired, what wardrobe malfunction happened during half time or how the lights went out in the entire stadium? I didn’t think so…So I will be tuning in for the sole reason of not being asked if I am living under a rock 😛

    As we all know the essential part of any SuperBowl watching experience is amazing snacks, duhh! So what better way to root for your favorite team than with limited edition ‘Denver‘ vs. ‘Seattle‘ minis from Baked By Melissa aka BBM (move over Blackberry, BBM is all about cupcakes for now 😉 )! I love these bite sized sweet treats!

    What do I love most about these little babies? I pay my photographer aka my little sister with them! She doesn’t request cash, she requests I pick her up Baked By Melissa once a week…now that’s what I call a sweet deal!

    If only this Melissa (me lol) could bake…I’d be one lucky lady 😉

    A Cozy Cardigan

    The key to surviving winter weather while still looking cute…you guessed it layers! And one of my favorite way to layer is to throw a simple cardigan over almost any look which gives an extra ‘warm and cozy‘ vibe! Although this look may not be suitable for the polar vortex NYC has been experiencing over the past few weeks, on a slightly warmer day with maybe some tights, this look is simply perfect for work or play!

    I also love the nice earth tones I get in this outfit! The navy skirt, olive green top, beige cardigan and taupe booties are great for fall, winter or spring and to add a little extra something, of course a pop of color with my red Rebecca Minkoff bag! It’s simply, comfy and casual and it can be dressed up or down depending on what the day has in store for you!

    I am not wearing this ensemble today, but the day I did wear it, was for a casual Friday at work, because who doesn’t love tees and cardigans on a Friday?! By the way, my entire look (except for my shoes) is from Nordstrom…I’ve officially become addicted to shopping their ‘sale’ section online because with Free Shipping & Free Returns, it’s my version of guilt free shopping 😉
