Missy wasn’t on Madison yesterday, she was in Manhasset! I was so happy to attend the opening of the newest Nordstrom Rack location on Long Island, Manhasset. I got to meet the fabulous Sheryl from ‘Walk In Wonderland‘ and shop some amazing steals before the official grand opening today!
I love Sheryl’s blog and I always love the chance to meet and mingle with other bloggers. They understand the constant need for photos, the best angles and what to show off…Sheryl even made sure both of our handbags were front and center for our photo 🙂 She was such a sweetie, in fact the entire event was! They had fabulous snacks to munch on…nom nom nom and of course amazing accessories, shoes and handbags that I fell in love with! I’m glad I wore a casual look because I wasn’t simply snapping pics but also shopping…oops 😉
Not going to lie, I was so busy shopping I didn’t even stop for a snack break, but I did stop to take a photo, how cute are these? And one of my favorites from Nordstrom Rack…all the Kate Spade jewels and bags…can you say ‘Live Colorfully’?!
Now to my outfit. Well I thought it was only suiting to pay homage to Nordstrom Rack by rocking this chambray top from them! I love a little chambray layered over a tank…it’s easy and fun! I am also obsessed with my new nude, studded handbag from Neiman Marcus Last Call. I spotted it and right away thought it looked like the Valentino bag I was lusting after and had to have it! Isn’t it great? I loved it so much I bought it in 2 other colors 🙂 Bling is always an essential, along with a great Essie manicure. This mani…Bikini So Teeny, don’t you just love the fun names of nail polishes! These shoes are an oldie but a goodie. I bought these from Steve Madden 4 years ago and they are still a favorite of mine. They match with everything and are super comfortable…every gal needs a great nude wedge! Every girl loves a little bling! I decided to play with layering and rock a hamsa hand, a star and a skull! Taking risks 😉
Be one of the first to check out the NEW Nordstrom Rack Manhasset location tomorrow at 8am and join them for breakfast, coffee, raffles and a chance to win a Nordstrom Rack gift card! 🙂
Happy Humpday loves! Not only is it Humpday, but it is #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday) and I am so excited to share this week’s crush with you, the fabulous shoe designer and fashionista Ruthie Davis! I had the pleasure of stopping by Ruthie’s showroom in Chelsea yesterday during a hectic market week in NYC and she was as fabulous as ever!
Just like Ruthie, her showroom was decked to the nines…I loved the incense, furniture, even the pillow! ‘The Higher The Heel The Better You Feel’…that’s one of Ruthie’s many mantras, but like she explained to me, the heel is great, but it is nothing without the right pitch. What makes Ruthie stand out amongst the sea of footwear designers in the industry is the fact that she creates works of art. She is a woman making gorgeous shoes for women…she understands the art of shoemaking, the work that goes into it and not only makes her shoes stand out with exquisite colors and designs, but with the fact that they are comfortable as well! Yes ladies, our prayers have been answered! 🙂Ruthie not only creates beautiful heels, but also fun and funky sneakers (she began her footwear journey with Reebok…so comfort and function are always key…even with sweet kicks like these!). I love how Ruthie is all about female empowerment. Girl Power all the way with Ruthie! She embraces the entrepreneur spirit, loves social media and embraces change within the industry….that’s why I have to admit I have a slight crush on her great spirit and the empire she has built!Ruthie has been a shoe lover since the age of 12 when she rocked her first pair of platforms to school. The other girls thought she was crazy, but in my opinion craziness breeds genius…and that is exactly what Ruthie is! I love how she takes inspiration from architecture and New York City for her shoes. Her heels are so unique that fashion lovers everywhere are flocking to her…including Lady Gaga and Beyonce! If you want to fit in, Ruthie’s shoes aren’t for you, they are for the modern woman who likes to take risks but look fabulous while doing it 😉Lady Gaga has been seen rocking Ruthie’s lucite heel design and she created a new spin on that for her upcoming collection which is top secret! Shhh 😉 Ruthie however gave me a sneak peak of one fabulous shoe (naturally she was rocking it herself…she is always the best model for her shoes!) from her newest Resort 15 collection, tell me the neon doesn’t make you want to dance on a cruise! And Ruthie of course had to snap a pic in front of her muse…Kate Moss, two boss ladies that know how to be strong, stylish women…now that’s hot!

Happy June Everyone! Can’t believe it’s officially a summer month! What better way to ring in summer than with a look at some fab swimwear and jewels from the Bikini Alchemy rooftop bash at the Hudson Hotel in NYC! I loved their beach inspired set up and all their fab pieces…I think I have some shopping to do 😉
I love the shot I took above, although I rarely drink, I am a firm believer that the glass of champagne made the photo 🙂
I fell in love with this piece the second I saw it! I loved all the swimwear at the event, but this piece reminded me of something Mara Hoffman would create and I’m simply obsessed with her style and design! While there was tons of swimwear at the event (kinda obvious given the name!) there was also some great jewels and sunnies from Bash and Bow in NYC! They have amazing accessories at low prices…just what every fashionista needs 🙂 Like I said, I loveddddd the cute decorations everywhere…they totally put me in the summer mood minus the random rain showers we had throughout the day in NYC! As always, it was another fun weekend of blogging events, outfit shoots and of course some R & R 🙂

Weekend Time = Game Time! Happy Weekend Loves! I decided to actually take advantage of our sport court for this little look. I dug my silver Chuck Taylor’s out from the back of my closet and decided to pair them with a preppy button down from Target and some simple denim shorts for a little outdoor fun! It’s rare that I anyone in our family gets out and uses the court (busy schedules mean less tennis playing time) and when we do…or at least when I do, I’m not afraid to admit I am far from coordinated when it comes to the game of tennis 🙂 Read more
Nothing like a relaxing weekend on Long Island to clear my head after a hectic week of appointments and blogging! One of my favorite Long Island spots is Huntington. It’s where my dad grew up, where my grandparents live and all around a great little town filled with unique shops, beaches, a marina and a cool ocean breeze.
I was so happy to show off another great goodie from Lucky Fabb, this Capwell + Co layered necklace…isn’t it fab? Just add a cute pink bag like the GiGi New York one shown and some sunnies and your ready for some fun weekend wandering…
