This past weekend, Casey and I celebrated our one year anniversary! (If you follow me on snapchat at mystylepill then you would have seen all of our silly videos.:) We started with brunch at Extra Virgin, then made our way up to The Met, where we planned to celebrate with a glass of bubbly on the rooftop, but unfortunately it doesn’t open until May 12th. So we decided to just take a long stroll back through the park and take in all the amazing scenery that Central Park has to offer, especially during the spring. The cherry blossoms were out of control beautiful.
Later on in the evening, we got all dressed up and went to dinner The Dutch, then afterward headed over to the bar where we first met. It was fun to reminisce about that first weekend together and laugh at the silly photos we took that first night.
We have done so many great things together this past year and had some really awesome experiences. I love you, Casey, thank you for the best year of my life! xo
So you know when you have that kind of week when you are constantly one day off? I thought yesterday was Tuesday and then last night when I was editing my YouTube video, it was past midnight as I was scheduling it, so I guess the computer read it to go live on April 22nd not the 21st. Awesome.
Anyway, I did actually catch it in time and got it up around 7pm, thanks to my Godmother who texted me about it not showing up earlier in the day. Thank you, Margret! :) Regardless of that small snafu, I do in fact have a new video ready in case you guys didn’t catch it yesterday, so take a look if you have a moment ! xo
Hey guys and happy Tuesday! Today’s post is all about what I wore down to Dallas this past weekend! I went courtesy of Mary Kay, to learn more about the brand, visit their headquarters and attend the 50th Anniversary of the ACM awards! (They were one of the official sponsors.)
For those of you that follow me on YouTube (you can subscribe here!) I made a packing video last week, which shared everything I brought with me on this trip, and I mentioned I was going to share the outfits I wore. I didn’t get as much footage as I wanted because the trip was such a whirlwind and we got caught in a tornado watch!!! But at least I was able to document (both on video and in photographs) two different looks, one of which I wore to the awards ceremony!
I have owned this gorgeous silk shift dress, which was a gift from Calypso, for months now but it has just been too darn cold to wear it! So I was over the moon that I finally was able to in Dallas this past weekend. I wore this look to my meeting at the Mary Kay offices and then to lunch afterwards.
P.S. For those of you that have commented on my hair – I did in fact color it again! I worked with Arrojo on this and am planning on sharing my “hair color plan” with you guys soon. Hoping for it to eventually look like THIS!
Casey and I spent this past weekend in Dallas on behalf of Mary Kay to attend the 50th Anniversary of the Academy of Country Music Awards, which was an absolute blast. I should be getting more photos from the weekend soon and will share them once they arrive, but in the meantime here are some iPhone snaps from the past few days.
What I wore to attend the ACM Party For A Cause. I love these cowboy boots…I found them in a vintage shop years ago and unfortunately never really wear them, but they were definitely perfect for this weekend!
Casey and I just before they evacuated us from our seats due to a tornado watch. Yep. That happened. We spent the next few hours huddled wherever could find some shelter from the crazy blowing wind and rain. Sadly, we missed the show all together because they didn’t resume until 11:30PM. Such a bummer, but an adventure nonetheless!
And finally, all dolled up for the 50th ACM Awards! We all got our hair done at Era Salon and the very talented Luis, who works on Project Runway, did my makeup. I was thrilled with the outcome.
I will have more outfit shots of what I wore this weekend up tomorrow as well as a new YouTube video, so make sure to check back to see all of that. But if you want to see more behind the scenes from this weekend, find me (or sign up if you haven’t already) on Snapchat and follow me at mystylepill. I snapped a bunch of live music by Garth, Reba and more!
Hope you guys had a great weekend and I’ll see you tomorrow!
And thank you Mary Kay for having us, it was an amazing weekend! xo
One of my favorite things about going to the salon is getting my hair washed. I love having my head rubbed, the warm water is so soothing and having someone else wash your hair just feels so luxurious. Don’t you agree? It’s really the best thing ever in my book.
Well, on Tuesday, I was lucky enough to experience a hair treatment (the Emergencée Restorative Strength Conditioning Treatment was/is amazing) and styling session at the new Nexxus hair salon in Tribeca. I not only had the hair washing and head massage of a lifetime (their wash chairs recline and are made by the same company as dentist office chairs!!!) but I was walked through a personal hair diagnosis via an interactive touch screen mirror by Nexus’ Creative Director, Kevin Mancuso himself, then whisked away to a styling chair for a blow out complete with a touch of beachy waves for my final look by the lovely and talented Patrick.
This ingenious interactive mirror walks you through a texture matrix based on the type and diameter of your hair (you upload a photo of yourself before you get your hair cut) and based on your answers, it helps you choose a color, style and product regimen. What?! Genius. I was so impressed.
The other great thing about this system is, it remembers exactly what you had done by saving your photos and data so you can always get exactly what you’re looking for each time you come in! Again, totally sold.
These chairs recline all the way back, as you can see in the photo below, which totally eliminate neck cricks and discomfort altogether. You basically feel like you are lying in a soft and comfy bed. Thumbs up in my book!
I had just sat up from getting my head massaged and hair washed. If you can’t tell, I was one happy and relaxed girl!
The final look!
My outfit: Top: Equipment / Pants: Rag & Bone / Boots: Rag & Bone
I got to hang with these cute girls all night, feeling all pampered and pretty, for the second portion of the night, which was the cocktail party with Cosmopolitan! (Far right, Jeannine from BeautySweetSpot, far left, Jordan from Ramshackle Glam, and Amber from Rouge18 (not pictured).)
The salon officially opens in June, but they are doing a soft launch now so you can schedule an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 212-219-8635. You can view all their treatments here.
The Nexxus Hair Salon is located at 39 N. Moore in NYC, so if you are locally based or visiting this summer, I definitely recommend checking it out! xo

Hey everyone and happy Thursday! Aren’t you so happy the weekend is just around the corner. I know I am because tomorrow I am escaping the city with Casey for a quick weekend to Dallas, where the weather is supposed to be 70 degrees! I will be down there with Mary Kay for the Academy of Country Music awards (more on that to come) but in the meantime, if you have a moment, take a minute to check out today’s video. It is all about what I am packing to bring with me and I will be debuting how I styled everything up on next Tuesday’s video, so stay tuned.
Hello everyone, and happy Tuesday! We had pretty amazing weather in New York this past weekend, and even though it was still a bit on the chilly side at times (silly wind), the sun was actually out and shining, which was a huge plus in my book. So I thought I would share some fun photos showing you what I wore on Saturday and Sunday, and if you would like to take a look at the video I created around these outfits, hop on over to my YouTube channel and take a peek! xo
(Outfit details are listed at the very bottom of the post.)
Weekend, you were grand. You were the perfect mix of indulgent fun and relaxing moments, and I thank you for it. I am also happy to report that I was able to get a lot of outfit (both photo and video) footage this past weekend, so I will be sharing what I wore tomorrow, not only on the blog, but on my YouTube channel as well!
To that end…I also am going to start a second channel – a vlog – which will be about my personal life and anything else that doesn’t exactly fall under the category of fashion – we are talking more lifestyle, food, my cat, Casey, travel, family etc. So, if you guys are into that and would want to watch, please let me know because I am hoping to start it sooner than later! YAY! xoxo
P.S. I changed my hair up (again!) over the weekend at Arrojo thanks to the talented Francesca, and am really happy with it! More to come on that soon, but in the meantime, what do you guys think? I absolutely love it. :)
