NYFW Style with Lulu*s

15 September 2014

This Fashion Week I mostly kept things simple in the form of separates, prints and color. I wanted easy, wearable pieces with their own pop of pizazz and personality for each day I was there... 

So when I teamed up with Lulu*s to throw together a couple of NYFW outfits I immediately knew that I would reach for a playful skirt, cropped top and layers, my current uniform, naturally. Though I will say their current selection made it hard for me to narrow things down, talk about awesome Fall pieces!

As far as Day 4's look goes, the {midi} skirt spoke volumes on it's on with a playful new take on typical stripes in the form of sheer and metallics. Topped with a cropped top and leather jacket it fit together perfectly, I grabbed my larger bag for toting my camera and heavier items but switched it out for a clutch for dinner...

Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy Gold X TfDiaries

12 September 2014

When it comes to gold I’m probably one of the firsts to layer it on when I’m getting dressed, there’s just something about that bright metallic hue that does something to me. Eyeshadow, accessories, and jewelry, you name it - I’m all for it. So when Juicy Couture launched Viva la Juicy Gold Couture I thought it was only fitting to give it a try and head to the launch where I was doused it all things gold, including my ensemble for the evening. My vintage {french connection} gold sequin dress paired with a smokey eye seemed fitting for the occasion, am I right?
After walking in to Goldbar (how fitting), I was quickly spritzed with Viva la Juicy Gold Couture and sent on my way to grab a drink, indulge in their ice cream bar and of course try my hand at the photo booth, like any blogger would do. We spent the night watching the bartenders craft custom Gold Couture inspired cocktails with just a touch of pink with chambord and raspberries to keep things in theme with the brand and fragrance. Which was then followed up with chatting about our favorite shows and trends from the tents this week. As we ended out our night in the rooms adorned in fragrance bottles and the right amount of sparkle we were handed glitter gift bags filled with midas infused accessories, beauty products and of course, a purse sized rollerball of the fragrance for on-the-go application...
I’m sure by now you’re wondering about the scent, so as far as the fragrance itself goes, it has quickly taken a (dominant) spot on my dresser with it’s rich vanilla, caramel and amber aroma paired with decedent berries. I’ve found it light enough for everyday use with just a touch of decadence. Viva la Juicy {Gold Couture}!

Medina II Day To Night

11 September 2014

It’s really no secret that I play favorites with Fall, there’s just something about the crisp feeling in the air that feels almost like magic to me. Of course, the loads of layers and the stylish boots don’t really hurt. Which is why I’m alway on the hunt for functional yet stylish fall additions for my closet. Because, you should never have to sacrifice style for function, right? Absolutely, which is exactly what I thought when I first set my sites on SOREL’s Medina II, original yet modern with a touch of elegance and edge. Now, you might already be a fan of SOREL’s winter boots, but after seeing their new Fall collection, you’re going to love them almost all year around... 

The Medina II isn’t like other all weather boots, they can be worn dressed up or down and worn for just about any occasion. Be it work, shopping, brunch or even date night with their luxe attention to detail and function. Plus, the pop of metallic with the gold plated heel? Perfection. Which is exactly why I’ve teamed up with SOREL to share my new Fall favorite boot and how to style it from day to night. Now, as you might remember my long standing rule of finding at least 3 different ways to wear an item before adding it my closet to guarantee that it will get worn, and of course keep the cost per wear down. If you missed my #1boots3ways Instagram posts, check them out. If not, here’s two more ways to wear Medina II....

Obviously, it wouldn’t quite be Fall without some sort of denim involvement which is why jeans and a white flowing blouse with a few loose accessories were the clear way to go for day. Put together yet laid back and not stealing the show from the boots.

As far as night goes, layering is key. A flirty little skater skirt and graphic tee with a leather jacket to give the entire look a tough feel . This time around I removed the leather cover (yes, it’s removable!) to keep things monochromatic. When things get cooler you can be sure that I’ll be adding textured tights to this ensemble.

Christian Siriano Spring 2015

For me Christian Siriano is one of the shows I look forward to most each season.  I love his modernized, old hollywood glamour esthetics paired with his ever pleasing feminine silhouettes. Christian always opts for fun textures, cutouts and hemlines so of course it was no surprise when the first of many gorgeous dresses strutted down the runway with playful sheer overlay, feather and cut outs. I personally found myself partial to the cut out / sheer overlay cropped top and maxi but was also enamored with the strong feather presence as any feather lover would be. While white was dominant this season there were also spottings of black, metallic navy and the aqua on the runway for Spring 2015. I guess I'll be stocking up on white and feathers for next year...

NYFW Style Day Two: Pop Of Neon Sparkle

10 September 2014

For day two I went a little feminine (read, Carrie Bradshaw) in this ballerina esque dress, ridiculously comfy (and awesome) heels with just a pop of color and sparkle to pull it all together. I've been obsessed with this Lulu*s bag this season at fashion week, so stayed tuned for more appearances...

Mara Hoffman Spring 2015

09 September 2014

Taking a {slight} break from her tribal esthetic, Mara Hoffman whisked us away to the desert for a Spring Get-a-away equipped with perfectly constructed bathing suits, playful cut outs, lots of prints and surplus of stylish head gear. Obviously I found myself partial to the flowing maxis and cut out jumpsuits, but the cheery {almost} kaleidoscope print is what really caught my eye in the Spring/Summer 2015 collection. I couldn't help but fall in love with the print on everything from suits, coverups and dresses.
