Fuzzy Wuzzy

If you’re living on the East Coast, you know that winter is still very present. I’ve learned over the years to try and make friends with this horrible cold and dress more appropriately. Luckily, there are some cute trends out this F/W that are inspiring to me. My favorite trend that works with my personal style is the “fuzzy” sweater. Besides the warmth, the fuzzy look gives it a very cozy and angel- like feeling. I’ve seen these sweaters all over the place but the ones below are some of my personal favorites. So, this winter you can stay fashionable and warm. 🙂

Ciara looking lovely in pink 🙂 Personally, I like these types of sweaters in more pastel colors or even just a white. It adds a more innocent look to it.

Winter White Trend

One of my current Fall/Winter trend obsessions is Winter White. There is just something so chic and elegant about wearing white that I just love. I always used to think of wearing all white in the summer time (All-White Parties!) but after seeing so much of this trend on the runway and translated into winter wear, I’m starting to be a believer. 

I absolutely love color (especially in the dreary winter months) but for me, white is even more powerful than a bright color sometimes. Pair it with a really dark lip color and gold accessories and you’re all set.

Some Winter White Inspiration:

NY Fashion Week Recap 2013!

Hey Naturalista’s! After a whirlwind of NYFW events I finally was able to compile some of my fav. looks and times from the shows I was able to attend with my dear friend and Blogger, Martha Luna (www.mdollnyc.com) Check her blog out!

NYFW was everything I imagined and more! It was a jam-packed day full of shows back to back and many, many familiar faces in the fashion industry. Super great place to network, too. I met a lot of designers, bloggers, videographers, models, and more!! Everyone was just so friendly and super sweet. Really just trying to get their business card out there and get their name out to as many ppl possible.

Besides the free goodies and VIP, my favorite part was def. the actual runway shows. The music and papparazzi really set the vibe to the show. As the models walked out on the runway wearing some of the most beautiful designs for Fall I began to feel what living out a dream really feels like. It was truly everything I had anticipated and more! My favorite show was the Monique Lhullier show, I didn’t get good pics b/c I was so just so intrigued and in the moment. PS. the shows are super short! They last about 8-12 minutes. So can you imagine? Working on a line for about 6 months for a 10 min. presentation with a million ppl watching?? Talk about pressure!

Check out some of pics. to give you a bit of what I felt on Day three of NYFW at Lincoln Center, NYC.

My evening with Rachel Zoe, Fashion Stylist/Designer/Editor

On Wednesday night in SoHo, NYC I got to meet one of my favorite style icons ever!! Knowing people in this industry is always major, I received the invite/RSVP from one of my dear friends and was lucky enough to bring a plus one with me 🙂

The event was everything and more! Located in SoHo in the store of PiperLime.. The store was shut down and only the best of the best fashionista’s were there! Mingling, open bar with spiked hot chocolate, baked by Melissa signature cupcakes, and of course the main event- Miss Rachel Zoe. Rachel is the fashion editor for Piperlime now, so a lot of her clothing was in the store. I got to browse and shop the latest collection along with other amazing designer pieces.

Rachel did a styling segment and brought out models with her fave holiday season looks. She gave us all little tips and tricks for dressing up and out! It was “MAJE” But my fave part? Meeting her in person and take a quick pic! I told her she is such an inspiration to me and I was just thrilled to meet her! All in all, the night was perfect and I’m so happy I got the chance to meet one of my style icons!!! RACHEL!!! Go team Zoe! (Did I mention her hubby and entourage were there too? Brad is gorge! in person) 🙂

Army in Style

This season the military look is everywhere! From the combat boots, to the vintage flair jackets, camo pants, and even some army inspired accessories are coming from runways to stores. Combat boots have always been a staple  in my closet but this season I’m all about the jackets!! For men/women this style is just perfect. Over a chunky sweater, layer it with scarves, big earrings and jeans tucked in your boots- perfect Saturday brunch outfit if ya ask me.

*My hint– working in NYC I’ve found all the little gems and secrets and I’m sharing this one with my naturalista’s .. Google “ARMY STORES” around your hood.. These spots are wayyyy cheaper than those jackets you will find at high end stores. More authentic and vintage too 😉

Take a look at some of my inspiration for this post!

Hello October

Welcome October. Welcome the season change and the bright, fall colors. The new, sleek looks from the hair color change to the booties on our feet. Inspiration is everywhere around us in this month, leading us to everything that fall has to offer. This season I want to do more. New York City is absolutely beautiful with the leaves changing. On my list will be apple/pumpkin picking, Central Park picnics, boating, Brooklyn adventures, lots and lots of fall shopping, and trying anything pumpkin spiced! I’m embracing this new season with a new mindset and am constantly evolving. It’s newness that restores our soul and lifts us up. No matter what has brought you down, this season is here to bring us back up. Keep that in mind and our wings will soar. Happy October and welcome newness, Naturalista’s!

Sneaker Diva Fly

As much as I’m obsessed with summer and the gorge weather, one of my other fave seasons is FALL. Mostly because of the amazing fashion and NYFW, of course 🙂 The hottest trend right now is the wedge sneaker. I must admit that although I always like to be fashion forward, not all trends are suitable for me. I pick and choose what I like the best and add my own flair to it. Being confident within yourself is the best way to rock a trend 😉

This new twist to the sneaker is an inspiration of the fab Isabel Marant. Totally puts the chic and edge into a sneaker. Every store is re-creating them for a range of decisions for us fashionistas. Steve Madden, Aldo, Urban Outffitters are just some of the major stores you can find them. With different colors and textures the possibilities are endless!

I have my eye on leather black for this Fall.. check out some of my faves and how celebs we love rocked them:
