    Killer Cobalt


    This is one of my favorite outfits on the blog to date! As you know by now…color is a key part of my wardrobe and when I am feeling extra glamorous, I have a thing for faux fur, so when I put this outfit on I was in heaven!

    I looked in the mirror and had a Carrie Bradshaw moment thinking all I needed was a girls night out with some cosmos and I am ready to go 😉 I have been walking a fine line this winter between wanting to dress warm and cozy but also wanting to look sexy and trendy…this look went for the later. I can assure you that I can’t walk out of the house in just this (yes, I actually have to wear a coat ugh, but as long as it’s Michael Kors I suppose I’ll survive lol), but once I get to where I’m going, this outfit is simply stunning.

    One of my favorite things about my wardrobe and this outfit is that every piece is affordable…I never splurge except for on handbags ( hence my Louis Vuitton obsession), but when it comes to clothes, in order to have more options, I often times shop the sale and clearance section and that’s how every piece in this outfit cam about (minus the clutch…that’s a slightly different story 😉 )!

    This clutch was given to me by my mom who received it from her mother as a gift from Louis Vuitton in Paris so it’s pretty legit, every time I wear it my mom never hesitates to remind me the history of it and ‘You better not loose it’! Well so far I haven’t and because i love it so much I had to add it to the glitz and glamour of this outfit!

    Mellow Yellow

    20131208-090113.jpgHappy Sunday Fashion Lovers!

    I’m feeling quite bright and cheery this Sunday morning for a few reasons:

    1) I’m loving these neon yellow ‘Hue’ jeggings from Bloomingdales, showing that neon can be worn year round because come on, who wants to hide this in the back of your closet? Not me!

    2) I’m beyond excited to see my amazing boyfriend today! He’s been in Israel for 2 weeks and I’m getting him from the airport later today…that whole feeling of a giddy school girl with butterflies in her stomach…well that’s me today because I am thrilled to finally see him in person rather than just face timing every night 🙂

    3) I’m well rested from this hectic week at the FFANY Shoe Show. Although looking at all the FFANY social media it may look like fun and games, glitz and glam, and a shoe lovers dream…trade shows can definitely be exhausting when your running them, so a little R&R is always necessary!

    What I love about this look is that it shows you can mix and match seasonal pieces year round. Yup, my mom definitely thought I was nuts when I ordered bright yellow jeggings, but paired with basic flats, a blue bag and an oversized sweater, I’m thinking this is a perfect fall outfit, don’t you?

    ‘Lust VS. Must’ – Quilted Blue Bag

    Screen Shot 2013-11-08 at 1.28.55 PM

    I spotted this cobalt blue beauty on a few fashion bloggers and I instantly fell in love. Naturally I have taste for the finer things in life, however I certainly don’t have the budget to buy them, so on this week’s edition of ‘Lust vs. Must’ I bring to you the cheaper yet still chic version of the cobalt blue Chanel bag I fell head over *heels* for!

    While I couldn’t find an exact price on this Chanel show stopper, I’m sure it’s in the thousands, so I found a few great options to try!

    My ‘Must’ piece I actually purchased myself. It’s by the brand ‘Paradox’ available at Lord & Taylor and with all the sales and coupons only cost me $99! See how I styled it: here.

    Some other great quilted blue bag options I found are also reasonably affordable. I happen to have a love for Rebecca Minkoff, especially her handbags, so I fell in love when I found her ‘Affair’ bag in blue! You can get the large version with studs at either Nordstrom or Zappos, or the ‘mini’ version without studs at Nordstrom!

    If your a Michael Kors fan your in luck! Michael has a great quilted blue bag on sale at Piperlime for $213! I love the metal closure on the front and it’s also a perfect going out bag since it’s small and compact!

    A Bit of Blue & D’Orsay

    TGIF! I don’t know about you but I am thrilled its Friday and that means time for a 3 day weekend (since Monday is Veterans Day)!

    Today’s outfit once again breaks fashion rules. In the spirit of wearing white after Labor Day, I chose to rock these white ‘Rockstar’ skinnies from Old Navy. I love the fit of these, not to mention the fact that they only cost me $6 on clearance!

    A little piece of advice, always stock up on spring and summer clothes in the fall and winter season and vice versa. The sweater I’m wearing today I got at Old Navy two summers ago for $10…yes a total steal.

    I pulled the look together with casual black D’Orsay flats from the Nine West outlet (see link below for identical ones from Chinese Laundry at Nordstrom).

    To top it all off I rocked my new cobalt blue quilted leather bag I got on sale at Lord & Taylor! (Stay tuned for a lust vs. must post featuring the bag that inspired this purchase!)

    Now I’m off to another day in the chilly big apple!

    Happy Friday Fashion Lovers!
