TGIF! What a week it has been…the year has changed, the holiday season has ended and I’ve stocked up on so many sales and deals my closet is nearly about to explode (not kidding). One of the struggles that always happens once the holiday season comes to a close is how to recycle all of those great holiday pieces into every day ensembles and today’s look is the first of many posts written with that idea in mind 😉If you missed it, I rocked this shaggy pink coat (available on my Poshmark here) for my New Year’s Eve post along with a beaded skirt and swavorski crystal covered heels…festive for the ball drop of course! But today I dressed down this coat with a simple Topshop for Nordstrom camisole and Hue ‘Leatherette’ Leggings perfect for a Friday night out!One of these accessories has also gotten a lot of use during the holiday season, and now it will be a great going out bag for happy hour…this Michael Kors Python Clutch which I wore here for a different NYE post.I LOVE these nude suede open toe booties year round. They match with everything and nude is always a safe color for when you are unsure of what to wear for a night on the town. I found similar ones from ZooShoo here (for under $50).I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I will be out shooting some more winter time looks (that’s if I decide to dress weather appropriate…it’s a toss up haha!) and prepping to get back to work in the Big Apple! Wish me luck 🙂| Click To Shop My Look |
The time has come for the last blog post of 2014 and I can’t believe that it has now been a year and a half since I initially began blogging! 2014 has truly been a roller coaster ride for me from a new career path to stepping up my blogging game to meeting tons of new people…2014 has pushed me outside of my comfort zone and has truly been a stepping stone leading to my soon to be empire 😉 (wishful thinking :p)In true ‘cliche‘ blogger fashion as my brother would like to say haha (my brother is quite the spit fire by the way and also writes a blog of his own ‘Pop Culture Died In 2009‘) we did a fun glitter filled photo shoot to ring in the New Year in style! It took a good 40 shots to snap the perfect pic of me blowing sequins/glitter…I don’t know how all the other bloggers do it but hey the outtakes are always funny as well 😉 I love to make a statement especially on a holiday so today’s head to toe look is pure glamour…but first…the aftermath of my sequin frenzy…sequins EVERYWHERE!These Gucci Swavorski Crystal Heels are actually available in my Poshmark closet now and are absolutely stunning! I received them as a gift over a year ago and have yet to find somewhere to wear them…so why not rock them for New Year’s Eve (just the shoot that is…no way can I ruin these babies at a club lol!)My go to party and night out bag is the Rebecca Minkoff Affair Bag available here. It is simple, chic and fits all of your essentials (the perfect NYE bag to fit roll up flats, lip gloss + more)Now to break down the rest of my party girl look. This shaggy pink coat is a piece I fell in love with the second I spotted it. I may not of had somewhere to wear it to but I knew I simply HAD to have it 😉 (available on my Poshmark here)To match the pink shaggy coat I decided a chic beaded skirt was a must. While I couldn’t find a skirt identical to mine, I found two similar options from Saks Off Fifth and Urban Outfitters here + here.I also needed a slight pop of color…so this Kate Spade necklace did just the trick:

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to holiday’s (like Christmas, Thanksgiving + New Year’s) I am occasionally a last minute planner and prepper. So if you missed it, I provided a few outfit suggestions: ‘LBD for NYE‘, ‘Top 10 Dressing Guide For NYE‘ + ‘Sparkle // Sparkle‘ but today’s post is all about all the little essentials needed for your New Year’s Eve night and morning after 😉 I got you girl! These shots are sneak peek’s of what’s to come on the blog tomorrow…let’s just say there was glitter and sequinsEVERYWHERE and I had a lot of fun shooting it 🙂 Plus I finally had an excuse to wear these Gucci Swavorski Crystal Heels…where better to wear them than to ring in the New Year!| Click To Shop My Party + Morning After Essentials Below |
Sparkle, Sparkle…it’s almost time for the biggest party of the year (and no I am not referring to NYFW or the Met Gala)…I’m talking about New Year’s Eve 2014! While I still have absolutely no clue about what I will be doing the night the ball drops, one thing I do have somewhat of an idea about is what I will be wearing…and it includes tons of SPARKLE!What I love about New Year’s Eve is the fact that it’s one of the few times you can wear as much glitter and sparkle as you want without anyone taking a second glance…it’s like I can be the bedazzled princess I dreamed of as a little girl without people staring stunned at what I am wearing…can you say dream come true? Well, any excuse to wear a dress and sparkly heels is fine by me 😉 I LOVE a sweetheart neckline (on a side not if and when I ever get married…mark my words, the dress will be a sweetheart design) and especially a fit and flare style like this glittery dress I found at Charlotte Russe! Nothing is better than glitz and glamour on a budget right?
If you are up for the splurge Saks, Nordstrom and Bloomingdales all carry this gorgeous Jill Stuart gold strapless dress (it is STUNNING) and can be ordered for express delivery with free shipping whenever you are ready! I don’t know about you but whenever I wear something without sleeves I always feel the need to pair it with a blazer. Whether it’s heading to dinner, the club or even just a house party, you never know when chilly air may strike and you don’t want to feel uncomfortable at a fun event. I think white is a great color for New Year’s so pair a white boyfriend blazer with a dress, a top and skirt or a top and pants is a great way to keep warm but also stay stylish.Now for the fun stuff…shoes and bag swag. My clutch is from Michael Kors…the hardware on the python clutch adds to the sparkle of the dress and the heels…plus the clutch comes with an attachable chain strap so you can wear the clutch as a shoulder bag to keep your hands free for drinks and h’orderves.My shoes make a statement all on their own. I got these Nine West glitter sandals two years ago and they have been my go to New Year’s Eve footwear ever since. They sparkle, shine and are actually comfortable! (they are currently for sale on my Poshmark here) I found similar options from Michael Antonio (here), Ivanka Trump (here) + Steve Madden (here) all on sale with quick shipping options just in time for NYE!You can’t truly shine on New Year’s without statement making bling like this Kendra Scott ring and this star necklace (simple yet chic).No stand out look is complete without a perfect red lip (my current favorite is this Elizabeth Arden lipstick…see more of my favorite Elizabeth Arden picks here). If you still need some more New Year’s Eve inspo don’t fret. I shared my ‘Top 10 Dressing Guide for NYE’ over the weekend here + a ‘LBD For NYE’ outfit idea here (PS You will LOVE the sparkletastic fun that hits the blog on New Year’s Eve…I shot it over the weekend and let’s just say glitter ended up EVERYWHERE…oops)| Click To Shop This NYE Look |
Sequins, glitter and tons of sparkle…sounds like one of my favorite Holiday’s is right around the corner…New Year’s Eve! I already began sharing some of my go to outfits for the big night (if you missed yesterday’s LBD For NYE post be sure to check it out!). The shot shown above was taken yesterday during a fun NYE shoot…and let’s just say I left my mark…sequins everywhere!
One of the reasons I love New Year’s Eve is because I get to stand out and wear fun and flirty pieces that can’t necessarily be rocked during family affairs for Christmas or Hanukkah…so I have a roundup of my top 10 favorite pieces to snag ASAP before the ball drops 😉 Hope you all have a fabulous weekend + Be sure to take advantage of all the ‘After Christmas’ Sales happening now (I definitely snagged some amazing deals yesterday…two blouses and one pair of OTK boots at Nordstrom Rack…Hell Yea!)| Click To Shop |
