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.

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

 

Yippee, Fashion Week is here!  Can you believe it? How it’s already September 3rd, I have no idea. But it’s an exciting time of year for fashion, and starting today all through next week, it’s going to be crazy, fun, fast-paced and my days will be filled with nonstop shows, events and parties.

And speaking of events and parties, I am proud to share that I will be hosting an event with Marimekko next Wednesday from 5PM-8PM at their New York flagship store on 5th avenue. There will be cocktails, special savings, and I will be giving styling tips and advice on how to incorporate fall trends into your wardrobe, plus how to mix patterns, which Marimekko is famous for. You should definitely stop by. :)

For those of you just joining us, here’s a quick recap of the collaboration I am working on with Forever 21. I was recently asked to create three looks that illustrate different parts of my day to day, so I decided to pinpoint the main aspects of my work life. The first look, which you can see here, is what I would wear to a professional meeting in midtown. The second outfit, shown in this post, is a perfect example of what I wear when working as a personal stylist, which is another part of my profession in fashion. When I’m consulting women and their wardrobes, or out shopping with them, I like to be comfortable in what I’m wearing. There can be a lot of walking and schleping clothing, which in the summer months, when it’s so hot in New York,  I love to wear loose fitting clothing, so a flowy dress like this one becomes the perfect uniform for me.

A couple weeks ago I got to partake in a really fun shoot with the brand, Donna Morgan, which is a great line of dresses that all retail under $200. The pieces are extremely versatile and easy to style for all sorts of occasions. So to help demonstrate this, I picked two dresses and styled them a bunch of different ways showing how to take a look from day to night just by simply swapping out a few simple items and accessories. One of the pieces I styled was this colorful maxi, which is perfect for the end of summer. What’s great about this piece is, although it’s super cute on it’s own with it’s playful pattern and beaded neckline, I wanted to change it up a bit for day time looks, so I opted for more casual accessories such as neutral tones to keep relaxed unfussy. For my evening looks I chose white pieces to layer with, which I think adds an immediate elevated feel and instantly takes a simple maxi to the next level.

Remember when I said I went a little crazy at J.Crew? I just couldn’t help myself, there were just so many cute items to pick up and add to my closet for spring. But in order to make this shopping spree worth my while, I decided to combine and remix a few of items I bought in a bunch of different ways, so I will be rolling out those looks throughout the week. Stay tuned!

I recently went a little nuts at J.Crew in order to give my closet a bit of a spring refresh, and ended up coming home with quite a few new cute things. I generally dress fairly casually when running errands and working from home, but sometimes I want to look a bit more polished than usual. These pants are the silkiest, most comfortable pair I’ve worn in a long time and I love swishing around in them – they have great movement, unlike a lot of suit pants I’ve tried in the past. I decided to pair them with a more casual piece on top and this camo sweatshirt was the perfect thing to dress the overall look down a bit. I kept my accessories muted by opting for grays and silvers and topped it all off with a bright coral lip.
