Perfect Pearl


During our recent trip to NYC, we had been out all day and started to get a bit tired, so to fuel up we went to H&M and decided to purchase some treats for ourselves. Nothing says nourishment like clothes!

This pearl shirt seemed to be the perfect mate to my red skinny jeans and blood orange, ostrich Kate Spade heels!

Diane von Furstenburg sent a stunning outfit down her Fall 2012 runway. This shimmery, pearl shirt reminded me of my own! Which is fabulous because it means I can wear my little beauty this summer AND this fall! Yayyy!

Diesal Black and Gold even sent “my shirt” down the runway for their Spring 2012 collection!

Oh So Orange


The weather outside has been wild! One day it’s 45 degrees and the next it’s 82! Mother Nature is one silly chick. 

I’ve been resurrecting last years spring items and when I took out this magical, neon orange, sheer dress from H&M, my excitement for the warmer months was in full effect!

I have literally worn this dress to as many events, dinners, etc. as I possibly could and I plan on wearing it the same amount, if not more this year. It’s a summer staple!

Here I’m wearing it to the Camp Rock premiere in NYC. The Jonas Brothers thought I was quite a catch. And how Disney’ish do I look!?

These next two have me wearing my orange dream in Puerto Rico. The dress looks so Caribbean chic with a gold, petal necklace, a green, agate cuff, and gold sandals. 

Tangerine and neon oranges splashed the runway way for this spring!!


Check out this similar dress from Urban Outfitters!

Pleats Please


Weeks before Fashion Week, I have my outfits lined up on my clothing rack. I put a lot of time and effort into planning exactly what I will be wearing the day of a show. Do you think I can strut down the New York streets wearing just any old thing!? Never! 

While shopping in midtown, we popped into H&M and found some magical things!

I skipped to the register and purchased a pleated metallic skirt.

The fashion god herself wore a pleated green, leather skirt to the Victoria Beckham show last week!

Quite an appropriate skirt to wear to lunch at the St. Regis…

And to the Marchesa show at the Plaza.
