Happy Tuesday! Last week I attended a Juicy Couture event thrown by SheKnows for the launch of Juicy’s new perfume, Viva La Juicy Couture Gold. It was held at Gold Bar downtown, which was the perfect venue since not only was the name fitting but the decor was extremely decadent and dripping with gold embellishments. There was champagne to be drank and perfume to be spritzed, plus a super fun photo booth that Casey and I beelined for where we draped ourselves in a pink boa and funny accessories. The night was quite a success and I’ve actually been wearing the perfume nonstop. It has notes of vanilla, golden amber, berries, honeysuckle and caramel. Super sweet, but somehow not overly so. Casey sure seems to like it, so that always helps. :) If you pass a Sephora or Nordstrom anytime soon, stop in and give this perfume a try and let me know what you think! xoxo
I haven’t worn this whimsical skirt since this post back in 2011, but thanks to Helena who spotted this adorable version at an Anthropologie in Palm Beach, I was reminded of how much I love my own tulle skirt I bought at H&M years ago. I had recently sent it home to live at my parent’s house since I didn’t seem to be wearing it much, but after pulling it out from way back in the closet, I happily styled it up and had my very own Carrie Bradshaw moment. xo
I’m excited to share that I will be hosting a festive event with two of my favorite gals —Lindsey Calla and Keiko Lynn—this Wednesday night at the 5th Avenue store. Would love to see you all, so come on out for some champagne and holiday shopping! xo
This is the faux fur collar that came with this jacket, which I also wore over a bright pink blouse in this video, which you can also see here (just click the box that says #1).
I used the collar as a simple touch to glam up this simple but cute cozy knit cardigan (also seen here). Try this easy trick with any faux fur neck piece that you might have to spruce up an old sweater or in this case, a camel cape.
My dear readers, this week, I’d like you to join me in spreading the word about National Women’s Business Week, which runs through this Friday, October 22nd. And, when I recently learned that The (lovely) Tory Burch Foundation is also a part of this movement, I knew I had to post about it.
The foundation, that was launched in 2009, is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization that provides economic opportunity to women and their families in the United States, which helps women access financial tools to improve their lives. As a woman who works for herself and can identify with the trials and tribulations that comes with balancing the financial aspect of being your own boss, I wanted to share with you all, the wonderful things that Tory’s foundation does. Read more about it here!
To kick off the week, I decided to wear my very bold and patterned Tory Burch denim to get into the spirit of things! I love the design…it’s like the title says, zebra print crossed with crazy zigzags. I felt very daring walking around my neighborhood in them, and loved every minute of it.
I hope you all have a happy Monday, and I’ll see you tomorrow! xoxo
My outfit of the evening: East Village Frames / Equipment Blouse / Urban Outfitters Skirt / H&M Bag / Juicy Leather Jacket (gifted) / Steve Madden “Caryssa” Heels
Fashion’s Night Out Recap:
Met up with Vanessa, Keiko and Kim at the Coach store uptown, where I finally got to meet the lovely Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere…then we headed over to the Juicy store where we were interviewed by the glamorous Kelly… then we finally headed back down downtown, where we navigated the streets of the West Village and Meatpacking, which were chock full of blogger friends, fashionistas and fun parties.
I remixed my Equipment Tank Blouse, by tying it up and wearing it with my skirt I grabbed on sale at Urban Outfitters, paired with my favorite nerd chic specs. I eventually headed home, grabbed a couple slices of pizza, and fell into mbed. I must say, FNO was quite the success! xoxo
On Tuesday night, I had the extreme pleasure of attending a celebratory dinner for Erin Fetherston, who is Juicy Couture’s new creative consultant. I got to meet the lovely Miss Fetherston herself, as well as drink pink champagne and catch up with some of my favorite blogger girls, Audrey, Carolyn and Kelly. The rest of the evening was filled with eating, drinking, chatting and shopping…they let us loose in the Juicy store for an after-hours mini shopping spree! I felt very lucky and was floating on a cloud all evening.
