Post Round-Up

Hi readers! As many of you know, my blog’s email subscription feature was not working for the past few months, so while I continued to post, none of you received an email. I am rounding up a few of the posts in case you missed them! Links to shop the looks are in the actual posts, not this round-up post 🙂

This round-up includes several looks from holiday parties back in December- feels like ages ago! It also includes a charity gala, my company’s Great Gatsby themed holiday party, a NYE wedding look, and a photo shoot for a collaboration with ALLY shoes.

 

Balloon Sleeve Sweater & Pearl Embellished Sandals

The weather has been so up and down in New York lately. It was almost 80 degrees earlier this week, and now it is cold again. I paired an almost all-black look together the other day, with a few of my favorite recent trends: balloon sleeves (bubble sleeves) and pearl-embellished shoes. This cashmere sweater is by Magaschoni, and I was particularly drawn to it because of it’s unique interpretation of this season’s balloon sleeve (trend alert!). I love that the balloon sleeve detail is more of a bubble at the elbow…Snow White style! I kept the look simple with black leggings, and black sandals with pearl embellishments (trend alert). I loved these sandals so much, that I also bought them in a blush-nude hue, too! My bright blue nails are the finishing touch, I had so much fun with them. The color is “Butler Please” by Essie.

Valentine’s Day: Blue Hearts & Pearl Booties

I can’t believe it is yet another Valentine’s Day! As a child, I loved to wear red and pink on this holiday. Today, I still like to stay in the festive spirit with whimsical heart prints. A few years ago (hard to believe) I styled the pink and red version of this heart print button-down on the blog. This year, I am styling the blue version! I paired it with a faux fur navy sweater, and white denim. Who says you can’t wear denim after Labor Day 😉

My favorite part of this whole look, however, are the pearl booties. They are Jeffrey Campbell and it took three orders to get the perfect size and style. However, I LOVE them. The gold in the heel complemented the gold buttons on the blouse nicely.  The heel is the perfect height, and the pearls add such a nice surprise detail in the back. I wore these with my friend, Nicky, into Jeffrey’s over the weekend, and the sales people were all squinting at my boots and asking if they were Chanel (HA!)

I am off to Copenhagen tonight. Happy Valentine’s Day, loves!

All Black: Sleeveless Belted Vest & Quilted Peep-Toe Leather Booties

I hope this blog post publishes! I have been having a lot of issues with my blog posting and emailing my subscribers, so thank you for bearing with me! I had so much fun shooting this sophisticated all black look the other weekend when it was slightly warmer. I decided to go for bigger hair and bright blue nails (Essie “Butler Please”) to complement this all black look (how New York…). I recently swooned over the black belted vest at Zara. I paired it with Halogen black leather peep-toe booties that are SEVEN years old. I love the zipper and quilting detail on them. I felt very edgy, downtown, and vampy during this shoot! Thanks Nicky for taking these pics!!
