The Jimmy Choo sample sale was in full swing today once it opened to the public at 2pm. My source reported that most of the shoes were worn and were going at prices as low as $90 and others were $250. If the shoes were damaged which quite a few were, then they were $90. Most people were more than willing to purchase the worn/damage shoes and of course the acessories were huge a hit as well. The last day for the sale is tomorrow so head over on your lunch hour to grab your own pair:

One of my absolute favorite places to shop is J Crew. In fact, most of my work-drobe consists of J Crew pieces. I rely heavily on that random pop of color, super cool print and their excellent fit. It’s the perfect option for those moments when I feel a bit adventurous for work and I’ll wear a full on J Crew look and so was the case this past week when NYC experienced a couple days of mild weather.
This window pane and tweed pairing is by far my favorite print on print combination. What do you think of this combo?
For the last couple of fall/winter seasons, I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect pair of decorative boots straps to add a touch of edge to my boots. I was psyched to wear my beloved YSL boots yet another season, but I was even more excited after the lovely Yeni from Pimp Your Shoes sent me a pair of leather decorative boot straps with studded embellishments. Whether you’re sporting casual riding boots, flat dress boots or over the knee boots these boot straps are the perfect accessory for an added touch of edge to any look.
Pimp Your Shoes offers leather studded embellishments in gold or silver, single, double or triple row straps for the ultimate rocker chic look. You can snag your own pair of leather studded boot straps by visiting http://pimpyourshoes.nl/shop/
Ladies stay tuned for my next post to see how you can add a touch of glam to your heels.
Similar to my love for mixing prints, from time to time I like switch it up and mix and match textures. And so it was with this Alice & Olivia blazer which was a steal at a sample sale in December. I paired it with a knit pencil dress and added metallic gold polka dot tights to allow the eyes to dart from top to bottom. Maybe a little unconventional but it worked.

One of the latest trends that is still seemingly popular is the metallic trend. Whether worn in major or suttle ways, metallic can add a touch of your glamour to your day or evening look. Whether your metallics are tops, blazers, accessories it’s important to choose pieces that are refined to maintain a sophisticated look.
My preference has always been to avoid the metallic trend. But I loved the sophisitication and suttle glam Diane Von Furstenberg added to this steel grey/blue pencil skirt by adding the metallic gold band. I added a geometric print navy/magenta sweater to give the steel gray skirt some life and added the patch work clutch to compliment the sweater. Instead of adding a metallic accessory, the metallic gold polka dot tights was my clever way of topping off this look with the addition of the fur vest for an added touch of chic.
What do you think of this look?
When I wore this outfit a couple weeks ago, literally everyone asked me if I layered my clothes on top of a full body suit? I chuckled within myself every time the question was asked because this clever outfit look was created accidentally. It’s simply a sheer polka dot top and tights with dots the same size from top to bottom which created that head to toe bodysuit look.
Have you ever put a look together and by complete accident, it turned out to be a clever outfit?
This is the last post of this amazing Outfit Builder (J Crew Sequins Polka Dot Top). Pairing this dressy sequins top with denim creates a whole new dimension to this look. This look works perfect for a casual Friday in the office or Sunday Brunch.
This is Part 2 of how I paired this perfect outfit builder, the J Crew Sequins Polka Dot Top, with leather leggings to create a texture blocking look. Sequins and leather is always a fun way to mix textures by combining something pretty against a tough edgy palette.
Will you try mixing textures?
When I bought this polka dot sequins top over the holidays in J Crew’s holiday sale, I immediately realized how many different outfit ideas one can create just with this top alone. So I coined the term “Outfit Builder” to describe this awesome investment piece. This week’s posts will feature 3 different looks surrounding this J Crew Sequins Polka Dot Top.
I layered this top with a pussy bow chiffon top to add that ultra feminine feel and paired it with a pink pencil skirt, which served as a great color choice against black sequins. Polka dot tights was a great addition to dart the eyes from top to bottom.
Would you add this Outfit Builder to your closet? Stay tuned for Wednesday’s post to see what else I paired this sequins top with.

Happy New Year Everyone!!! I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and are excited for the new year. The last month has been a busy one for me with some transitions and now that everything is settled I’ll be blogging more frequently.
While the last couple of weeks have been freezing here in NYC, I managed to brave the temps to snap this look last week. While I’ve always been and probably will always be in love with pencil skirts, I have a new appreciation for a-line skirts. Not sure why I’ve never ventured to add this lady like classic to my closet, but I’m in love. My true size in a-line skirts sits right at the waist and looks like a swarm of material that’s just hanging off my body with no true shape. The trick to finding the right fit, is to size down so the waistline sits right on top the belly button. It then has the perfect flare because the skirt naturally falls higher on the waist.
When I want to wear my over the knee boots, an a-line skirt is the perfect go-to while managing to maintain that classy sexy look. Whenever you opt to wear anything with bulk on the bottom, it’s always best to pair it with something fitted and cropped on top.
If I’m not the only one late to get hip to this fashion staple, will you try pairing it with OTK boots?
