Happy Tuesday, everyone! I am so excited because I am flying to Seattle today for the holidays. I can’t wait to see my friends, family and of course, Barney! I packed this skirt with me and plan on wearing it on New Year’s Eve with Casey. Not sure what we are doing yet, but regardless, I always like to dress up a bit and this number is the perfect piece to work into my outfit. The tiny scallops, box pleats and silvery fabric add a festive touch and gives off a sweet and feminine vibe, which I really like. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to show you easy ways to style it up, simply by changing out the top and necklace, creating two different fun and festive looks!

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.

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

Cargo Leather Biker Jacket: All Saints / Sculptural Ribbon Cuff: Alexis Bittar / Turtleneck: American Apparel

I’ve been a fan of Alexis Bittar’s jewelry since 2005, when I was first introduced to it while working as an intern in the accessories closet at InStyle. I remember the pieces that the editors would call in for shoots and thinking how chic and amazing the rings, bracelets and necklaces looked. I continued to admire his jewelry whenever I would pass by this store on Bleecker, thinking how fun it would be to wear one of his amazing statement bangles. Flash forward to 2012 when I was working with a client and we were pouring over her collection of Alexis Bittar pieces that she had cumulated over the years, I was still admiring the style and shape of his jewelry. And now, here we are today, where I get to style up my very own selected pieces from Alexis Bittar’s collection and share them with you on my blog. Pretty exciting in my book!

The pieces I chose are very wearable and versatile, and I know I will be wearing them for years to come.

Just a fun little midday week announcement to let you guys know that I was asked to participate in a beauty challenge feature for New York Magazine’s The Cut! I’m very excited, as I am a huge fan of everything New York Magazine. The task at hand was to create three different looks with what product was given to me, which consisted of various eyeshadow sticks, colored eyeliners, mascara and lipstick. Then document the different looks through three step by step selfies. Each look also had to be worn to a New York Fashion event or show. It’s been really fun to play around with the makeup, and having never used Marc Jacob beauty products before, I have to say, I really like them. (I already know a few of them that will be living in my bag and on repeat during the fall and winter months.) Anyway, the challenge will go live on The Cut tomorrow, so keep an eye out. I will be tweeting all about it! As always, thanks for your enthusiasm and continuous support. xo

Dress: Donna Morgan / Necklace: J.Crew (old) / Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim (this color is no longer available, but this fuschia color is gorgeous! / Shoes: Casadei (I bought these heels on Gilt years ago, but they still have the style available in this lipstick red color. Perfect for fall!)

Earlier this summer, I did a photo shoot with the brand Donna Morgan, which is an online shop that offers a great selection of extremely versatile dresses that are easy to style, and retail under $200. I first shared about this project back in June when I showed how I styled this pretty summer maxi from day to night (also worn here). But now with fall upon us, I thought it was season-appropriate to share the second part of the shoot, which shows how I transitioned this little black dress from day to night by using pieces from my own closet.

Jacket: IRO (I scored this jacket majorly on sale but this inky-hued, deep purple version is also pretty stunning.) / Necklace: Bauble Bar (gift) / Bag: J.Crew / Shoes: Schutz (old, but similar options here and here)

The thing about a LBD is, it can be worn alone and still look amazing because it represents a polished, chic look, perfect for the office or happy hour, depending on the length and cut of course. :) But sometimes it’s fun to change it up a bit. So for instance, an easy way to create a daytime look is to try and keep the colors a bit brighter to lighten up the look of the dress. In this case, I used a punchy neon bag and pretty lavender shoes. Then for evening styles, I opted for more bold and striking pieces, such as a patterned leopard coat or an edgy maroon leather jacket. xo

P.S. Looking for some great versatile dresses for fall? You’re in luck! Donna Morgan is now offering 15% off the site with the code MSP0915, valid from 9/4-9/6! Happy shopping! xo
