I was asked to partner up with Rent the Runway and Pantene Pro-V to create a festive holiday post seeing that the party season is officially here. It was perfect timing because I had a very fancy soiree to go to at the Trump Soho with Casey and was really excited to get all dolled up.
The process:
When doing my hair for a dressy event, I like to keep it simple and straight forward by narrowing my products down three:  a dry shampoo, a flexible hair spray and hair creme to smooth down flyaways.


Since growing out my hair, I have really been into wearing it down and wavy. To achieve the look I wanted, I needed to create tight curls and then be able to brush them but have them still stay semi intact. Since I started with clean hair, I needed to create the texture and hold I wanted, so I sprayed my hair with dry shampoo and hairspray before using my curling iron.
After my hair was all bouncy and tightly curled, I sprayed it one more time with hairspray, brushed it through with a flat brush, then used the cream to shape the waves and tame any loose flyaways. Then, one final spritz of hair spray and voila, all done!
I had plans to wear the dress out later in the evening, but I knew the lighting wouldn’t be as good, so Casey and I trekked outside during the day in our ginormous sleeping bag coats and took these photos. It was about 25 degrees outside, and as crazy as it sounds and as cold as I was, we laughed our way through it. Because what else can you do? I am pretty sure the situation looked pretty comical – me in a strapless dress taking photos in the middle of the afternoon, freezing with no coat on. But it was worth it!
Later that night, I got all dressed up again, touched up my hair with all three products and bundled up to head back outside. Once we arrived at the party, we couldn’t resist taking photos out on the terrace. I absolutely love the one below that Casey captured. I was standing there posing and trying to look cute, and bam, a huge gust of wind came under my dress and almost blew it up! It was definitely my Marilyn Monroe moment, minus the subway grate. :)
 Thank you to Rent the Runway and Pantene for this great partnership and to Casey for braving the cold with me and taking these photos. xoxo

Ever since I got my ears re-pierced ( I now have two on one side and three on the other), I have loved playing around and mixing and matching with different studs. My usual go-to is Bauble Bar for fashion forward and wallet friendly pieces, so when I got hold of their Play By Ear Gift Set I was over the moon. Their gift box is full of so many various styles you can’t help but be inspired to mix and match and wear as many as you can. That said, I thought I would give it a whirl and do quick little earring remix for you guys!

Last week I teamed up with Gather & Gown, a new e-commerce bridal boutique, to style and remix a couple of their bridesmaids dresses. I think it’s so fun to take an item of clothing, in this case, a fancy party dress, and give it a completely different personality. I started with the dress shown above, which when worn traditionally as a bridesmaid dress, would look very elegant with silver strappy heels and a statement necklace. But instead I wanted to make it look a bit more edgy, so I slipped on a fitted black moto jacket and grabbed a pair of sparkly heels to give the look a bit of sass.



 All the pretty dresses. So many gorgeous styles and colors to choose from!

Founders Michael Shettel and Vincent Piccione launch their site in January 2015 and will offer beautifully tailored contemporary dresses for the wedding day and beyond, all for under $200 plus free shipping and free returns. The duo also wants their site to help girlfriends easily shop collaboratively together online no matter where they live or the distance between them.


The team took a handful of pictures on my iPhone while I was on set, so I thought it would be fun to share some behind the scenes photos of me getting ready, on camera with my gorgeous model (video to come soon!) and with one of the founders and designers, Michael Shettel. Seeing that I’m only 5’4, I had to stand on an apple box the whole time! Thanks, Gather & Gown for a great shoot. We shot some great footage and I can’t wait to share the final video with you all! xo
