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.
Let’s not forget the orginial…!
Although it is the start of my favorite fashion season, Fall, I still am missing summer time! I decided to share a fun photo shoot I did this summer in Brooklyn, NY. The set was in DUMBO, which is an area of Brooklyn overlooking Manhattan. The beautiful bridge is right behind me and I had an amazing time soaking up the sun, the views, and most importantly the summer time! You will be missed, summer ❤
I kept my outfit flirty and fun to go with my mood of the day. H&M neon green tank tucked into my favorite mid-waisted shorts from Forever21! (such a great find) I accessorized with colorful bangles I got from the boutique store, Steps, in NYC and bright cobalt blue nails. (Love this color, easily adds a pop of color to any outfit) Also, a gifted handmade necklace from Ghana and my mirrored blue sunnies.
:) Until next year ❤
In honor of National Bikini Day I thought it would be fun to look back in time at the time-less, vintage bikini’s. On July 5, 1946 the first two piece bathing suit was named and born into the world! How cool! I love learning about interesting facts like those. The story behind the bikini is super cool too. Louis Réard, a former automotive engineer and designer of the bikini, was working one day in his mother’s lingerie shop and got inspired to create this bathing suit. This took place, of course, in Paris, France. The name “bikini” came from the atomic bomb that US dropped in the Pacific Ocean at a place called Bikini Atoll. Kind of a strange way to come up with a name, but hey it fits! Since July 5, 1946 this bikini has made an appearance in all sorts of trends/ways.
I love mixing and matching my suits, there are some many options on how to rock your bombshell bod. Take a look at some of my favorite iconic bikini’s from the past and a few of myself in some vintage inspired looks! 🙂

Last night I attended an event at the Piperlime SoHo Pop UP store featuring “Song of Style” blogger and fashionista, Aimee Song. (www.songofstyle.com). The event was really fun and unique! I had a great time mingling with PopSugar and other fab ladies at the event. Aimee was super friendly and chatted with everyone.
Also, they had the cutest little treats for us to nibble on while we were shopping/mingling. A churro (fried dough sprinkled with sugar and cinnamin) hanging from an umbrella! Strawberry, rhubarb popsicles and rosemary flavored ice-cream sandwiches were just some of my faves from this Piperlime Event in SoHo. Oh, cannot forget the oyster cart with fresh oysters ready to be served. My blogger friend, MDoll, loved that part! Check her out on http://www.mdollnyc.com
I kept my outfit fun and chic- pairing my favorite American Apparel striped top with my neon pink trousers from H&M. Love the stripe simplicity with a bright, pop color! Accessories I kept simple with simple studs and two yellow bangles. Of course, my neon jelly’s were on my feet, keeping me comfy and pulled the look together!
This weekend my good friend did a feature of my style on her blog, http://www.lexlovescouture.com ! I had such a blast doing it and I think it came out really nice! Be sure to check out my style spotlight on her blog and the rest of it as well! Super cute!
Here are some images from the fun photo shoot 🙂
To all my naturalista fashionista’s out there keep on shining and growing throughout this new year ! Hope it was a fab. one! Mine was super fun; enjoyed a lovely dinner with my ladies then went out in the village for some more fun. Kept my outfit with my mindset for 2012- bright and bold! H&M floral print dress and gold accessories 🙂 Can’t forget my velvet black boots though! 😉
Well, it’s finally here..almost..the 50 piece collection of the VersacexH&M lookbook features dresses, skirts, leggings, scarves, handbags, shoes, belts, jewelry, etc. The palette is characteristically Versace: bright pinks, metallic sheathes, black cocktail frocks with gold embellishment, gold embellishment on everything, cutouts, leather, studs, Hawaiian and leopard prints and much, much more. Most of the pieces are not as RTW as I would think but overall, the collection seems like a perfect blend. Still, keeping with the Versace palette yet making it more chic friendly. I really like the dresses and adore the prints! It seems like there is a great variety with all the different pieces and accessories. This is definitely an exciting collabo!
Here are some of the pieces from the lookbook: (1st dress is DEF. on my wish list) :
