    Hollywood Happenings!

    Karen Kane MissyOnMadison Moto Jacket Neon Rebecca Minkoff Handbag Hollywood Sign Tourist Cali California Blogger

    Sad to say, but I’m writing this post not staring out at a gorgeous view in sunny California but looking out at flowers blooming back in NYC. That’s the thing about vacations they happen, they are amazing and then they end…back to reality. What can ya do!

    Kristi was such a great host when I was in LA and she made sure I saw all the ‘must see’ tourist attractions, which of course meant…heading to Hollywood! We stopped by the Hollywood Sign, the Hollywood Walk Of Fame and the legendary Chinese Theater!

    Mint & Polka Dots

    20140408-102114.jpg

    I love the fact that I can actually wear my spring and summer outfits here in LA 🙂 This look is from my first day here in sunny California when Kristi and I were running all around town for different fashion related events. As you may know, I love a pop of color and this outfit has two…my Steve Madden neon lime bag I scored at TJ Maxx for $20 and my mint green H&M blazer I found on the clearance rack for $10 two years ago!

    Funny how some of my favorite pieces weren’t ones that cost a fortune at a high end department store 😉

    Glitz & Glam!

    20140317-093311.jpg

    Happy Monday fashion lovers 🙂 This look is definitely not my ‘#OOTD‘, but it’s a look that is fit for a diva…which I admit, I occasionally like to be! This is the kind of ensemble meant for a night out in NYC, going from dinner to drinks with the girls or a date night…it’s sexy, fun and makes you stand out from the crowd.

    What I love most about this outfit is this skirt. Hard to believe it’s from the LC By Lauren Conrad collection at Kohls, scored on clearance for $8, but it’s true! Every time I wear it, I get nothing but compliments on it and everyone assumes it’s a ‘designer’ brand from a high end store…well the secret is out ladies, this skirt is from one of my favorite stores, Kohls! I have a thing for Lauren Conrad’s collection. All of her pieces fit me wonderfully and the prices are always reasonable…that’s a winning combination if you ask me 🙂

    If the skirt wasn’t chic enough, add a faux fur vest and you get instant glam! To add a little extra ‘oomph’ I paired it with some high black boots because if the look wasn’t sexy enough, these boots definitely helped do it!

    I wish I was able to wear this look to the office, but I think it may be a little too much, don’t ya think? Plus it’s back to freezing again in NYC…will this bitter cold ever end? 🙁 I want to bring out my spring wardrobe!

    My Vegas Trip Photo Diary!

    20140226-105719.jpg

    So as any of you who follow my Instagram may know, last week I went on my first ever trip to Las Vegas! First of all, it was my first time on an airplane since I was 5 so when I got to the airport not wearing socks and not thinking to weigh my luggage ahead of time, I was in for a few surprises haha!

    I went to Vegas for work and not play unfortunately, the FFANY gals were there to work on our charity venture QVC Presents FFANY ‘Shoes On Sale’ by meeting new contacts and soliciting for donations! May I just say everything in Vegas is over the top and huge including the trade shows, you can walk forever in the different halls.

    We even got to visit the Zappos headquarters…must say it was pretty awesome to see how they revolutionized downtown Las Vegas…all thanks to shoes and some other amazing items!

    Naturally my favorite part of the trip was the weather. Palm trees everywhere, sunny skies and an opportunity for me to wear dresses and sandals! 🙂 It was quite the escape from the bitter polar vortex in NYC! We stayed at the Bellagio, which made for tons of photos. Whether it was the botanical garden, the lovely shops or the fountains and pools, I was snapping pictures everywhere!

    Of course it wouldn’t have been a proper trip to Vegas without bringing home a little souvenier. While I left the snowglobes, pens and hats for my little sister, I opted to bring home a little something special…a new Tiffany and Co. bracelet I’ve been lusting after for a while. You can shop it –> HERE.

    In my mind, the best gifts are the ones you give yourself… 😉

    Winter Weather

    hphoto

    It’s a snow filled day in NYC today and while I try and always look stylish and never want to have just a ‘comfort’ look, this weather called for some drastic measures…Uggs.

    Now I have owned Uggs since I was in the 7th grade, and in middle school and high school on Long Island, they were a ‘must have’, but have ‘Uggs’ become just plain ugly? Is wearing them a sign of defeat…like you just don’t care about looking cute? I love to be stylish, don’t get me wrong, but when it snowing and freezing….isn’t the most rational thing to do to wear Uggs?

    This then leads me to my next question…Can Uggs be cute and stylish? And I’m talking the classic Uggs ladies, not all the new heeled styles they have recently come out with. Think about it, can a pair of Uggs really make or break an outfit? I guess that’s for you to decide!

    See how I styled Uggs for my Cozy Thanksgiving look: here
