Attitude is Everything- DVF













Blouse: DVF | Skirt: Calvin Klein | Shoes: ASOS | Jewelry: Freida Rothman | Watch: Michael Kors

This post is about my personal business style AND attitude evolving. Someone recently reminded me "When you realize how much you're worth, you'll stop giving people discounts.", and this statement really stuck with me.  Over the years I have worked really hard to get to where I am today. Every experience (whether good or bad) has been a learning opportunity and life lesson for me. My main goal as a woman has always been to be independent, and not rely on anyone else to make things happen for me.  I have truly learned that nothing in life comes easy and if you want something you better go out there and get it before someone else does. One of my main fashion role models Dianne von Furstenberg says it best, "You do not have to be a bitch to get what you want".  Your kindness, positive attitude, ability to relate to others and work ethic is what will set you apart. Not the fact that you are a bitch. I believe in professionalism and how you make others feel after an experience with you is truly our own personal branding statement.  I am ready for some BIG THINGS this year. 

"Beware of your thoughts for they become words, beware of your words for they become actions, beware of your actions for they become habits, beware of your habits for they become character, beware of your character for it becomes your destiny." - DVF

Textured Cut-Out Keyhole











Dress: metrostyle | Sunglasses & Bangles: Freida Rothman "Serena" | Boots: Michael Kors 


You know that fabulous Friday feeling? The one that brings a smile to your face, and you can't help but be happy because it's the weekend! I am looking good and feeling even better, it's all about confidence  in your own skin. I've made a conscious effort to change my lifestyle by eating heathy and working out (basically taking better care of my physical well being, even on a spiritual level.)  I still love my curves, and this gorg textured cut-out keyhole dress by Metrostyle fits all of the right places.  I have officially become a Brand Ambassador for metrostyle and I LOVE their pieces. The brand has some killer office options with a fashion twist. Every look is easily transitional from desk to dinner, with a slight edge. Not only do I feel sexy and confident, but I can wear this outfit to work with a blazer any day.  I paired my outfit with FR "Serena" sunglasses, a black/gold bangle stack, my favorite MK booties and a bold purple lippy by revlon. 

One of the most important lessons I am learning and trying to implement:
NEVER GET SO BUSY MAKING A LIVING THAT YOU FORGET TO MAKE A LIFE!

Clear Vision








Glasses: Max Cole | Dress: Forever 21 | Boots: Kenneth Cole | Jewelry: Freida Rothman 
Chunky Knit Scarf from the Blazers & Bellinis Closet Vault 

I have always loved fun glasses and cool frames. This was a pretty hard decision, as my eye doctor told me I need to start wearing glasses A LOT more then contacts to give my eyes a break. I probably spent over an hour trying on frames in the optical store, (haha) and finally I decided on these Max Cole clear front and textured stem glasses. I love them because you can wear anything and they will look great! I also love them because they are different, I hate going with anything ordinary.  

This flirty fun black faux leather skater dress is from Forever 21 (and already sold out online),  if you love it then I suggest getting on the wait list! I topped off my look with my fav printed pony hair booties by Kenneth Cole, a chunky knit scarf and bold jewels by Freida Rothman. 

What do you think of my new glasses?

POP CHAMPAGNE













GET THE LOOK
DRESS: ASOS | FUR: Adrienne Landau | BAG: Aldo from ASOS | JEWELS: Freida Rothman


This look is all about elegance and class, with a slight sexy edge. Last night I attended a wedding at the Wilshire Grand in NJ for a hometown friend I grew up with. It was a winter evening wedding, a long dress and fur only seemed right (and appropriate, despite what other people may think). My number #1 rule when it comes to dressing is if you feel comfortable and sexy, it will show. This dress is simply FABULOUS and how could I resist a navy + black cut-out combo? Navy IS the color of this season DUH! I am sick of wearing all black,  (boring) so I switched it up.  Did I mentioned this ASOS CURVE exclusive maxi dress with pleat front and cut out is currently on mega sale? I highly suggest adding this to your wardrobe before it sells out, also this garment can run a bit big so keep that in mind.  
I have been lusting for a new fur all winter, so I finally treated myself to this stunning Adrienne Landau cropped rabbit in white/brown. It is so soft and I am obsessed, the ONLY thing to keep in mind is that white fur sheds, especially on dark colors. (I carried a mini lint roller with me lol).  If you are against fur, or think it's "too much" then don't look.  #hatersgonnahate 

I accessorized my fierce evening style with jewelry by Freida Rothman, exclusively from the Spring 2015 collection which will be available in stores around March. These flat cut mother of pearl and pave earrings were to die for. Lastly, how freaking cute is my champagne cross body bag?! I was so excited to wear it, I always like to bring a little bit of humor to fashion. Who says it always has to be so serious?  It actually fits a lot more then it looks! If you have a few events coming up, or possibly a wedding I think it's the perfect evening bag with some sass. 

What do you think of my look?

Asymmetrical Influence









 Jewelry: Freida Rothman | Boots: Report | Handbag: Blazers & Bellinis Vault 

This is my very first blog post of 2015! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with their family & friends, most importantly getting some time to reflect on the previous year. I spent the past week away from the city up in the mountains with someone special, it's exactly what I needed after a few months of consecutive stress and a crazy schedule.  Just because I was up in the middle of nowhere doesn't mean I didn't pack a full wardrobe! haha A girl's gotta have options right?! I found this pencil skirt dress on ASOS.com and really loved it for work/fashion events/a night out on the town. It reminds me of that asymmetrical skort we all fell in love with over the summer (but a little more high end).  I threw on this Calvin Klein fur sweater vest, I especially love the gold details and buckles. I literally had to throw down in Century 21 Brooklyn to snag this bad boy as it was the last one. (Brooklyn girls are really serious about their vests, apparently).  I topped off my outfit with one of my fav Christmas presents, this half moon Gypsy Warrior beanie. 

I've set a lot of goals for myself this year and I am not letting anything or anyone get in my way. My official New Year Resolutions are: to do more things that make me happy, surround myself with people that make me smile, be fabulous EVERY DAMN DAY! Bring it on 2015 

What are your New Years Resolutions?
