WILD THANG














Wild Cargo Jacket #WA9890: UMGEE USA
Plaid Twill Dress: Old Navy (now on sale!) | Cross body: Remi & Reid 
 Mercer Cross Necklace: Freida Rothman | Sparkle Oxfords: Kate Spade, Nordstrom

What screams "HOLIDAY" more then plaid right? I love this twill shift dress by Old Navy, it's a really comfortable silhouette and the sleeves are 3inch quarter. Perfect for a day at the office, and easily transitional into a holiday party. I threw on this WILD navy cargo jacket by UMGEE USA over the dress. My friends joke around and call it my "artist smock", I love oversized cargos and the back detail is just too perfect.  Deep down inside I am a free spirit so I think it's really fitting, plus I can't get that damn song out of my head every time I wear it! haha I paired this look with silver and black sparkle oxfords by Kate Spade, yes I know how freaking cute are these?! I like to add in a little bit of my eclectic fun and these babies do just that.  

What do you think of my look? Show me your WILD style #blazersandbellinis

Frosted Fairytale #HolidayStyle













Dress (Little Mistress): ASOS | Boots: Report Signature, Neiman Marcus | Earrings: Freida Rothman 


There are two main things I think of when I see this dress: 

1. I feel like the princess from Candyland (Frostine)
2. That line from Taylor Swift's song " Darling Im a nightmare dressed like a daydream" 
hahaha! 

I FELL IN LOVE when I tried this dress on. I literally feel like a princess, and I NEVER usually wear light colors (especially pink), but there is something about it that's so feminine and glamourous. I feel like I'm floating and the fabric is just so sweet and delicate. I also love the sheer sweetheart top with embellished bell sleeves. I like to wear long sleeves in the winter and it's usually hard to find a cute dress with them.  The cut out in the back brings a little sexy detail to the sweetness.  Now let's talk about these Pave Slice Earrings, a new edition to the Freida Rothman collection. They are dressy enough for evening, but can also be worn with something casual. I am obsessed with them, and I usually don't wear earrings. I paired the look with dark black tights and black booties, because really… I'm not all that sweet! lol I still need to have a little edge in my look. One more thing I want to mention, this is such a great "holiday" dress because it is not the cliché red or green. I am attending my very first Hanukkah party tonight and I think it's perfect for celebrating ANY holiday. 

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season and serving up some fierce #HolidayStyle. Email me anytime for style tips or advice BlazersandBellinis@gmail.com xo

A Few of my Favorite Things #HolidayStyle










Metallic Gold Head Wrap: Karma for a Cure
Leather Zipper Leggings: UMGEE USA | Shoes: Kenneth Cole | Handbag: Michael Kors
Necklace, Rings & Black Enamel Bangles: Freida Rothman | Black/Gold Cuff: Forever 21 


This is a very special post for me because I am literally wearing all of my favorite brands and pieces in my wardrobe. The holidays mean a lot to me and I love to dress for the season. For those of you who do not know, I am a Christmas baby! (born December 25th) Everyone's usual response is, "man that must suck", but actually quite the opposite. I LOVE celebrating my birthday with my entire family, everyone is always in good spirits, I am always off from work for my birthday (SCORE! hehe), and it's  full of excitement.  This has been such an amazing and eventful year for me and Blazers & Bellinis. 

I am wearing some pretty classic holiday colors and styles, but with a twist. I'm really into big patterned 
 oversized plaids and large silhouettes with skinny pants. The jacket and T-Shirt are by one of my fav go-to brands ASOS. I think they have such a wide selection of pieces with great prices, and their clothing is really good quality.  The "Believe in Your Sefie" T is so much fun, it reminds people not to take fashion so seriously. It's my FAV T in my closet right now and can be worn with pretty much everything.  My leggings are by UMGEE USA, and they have been such an important staple in my blogging career. I became a Brand Ambassador for UMGEE a little over a year ago and was one of the 1st bloggers to promote their curve line to the wholesale apparel industry and specifically to buyers. This look also shows off all of my favorite accessory pieces, can't live without my staple Freida Rothman rings and bangles, and these are my beloved booties for the winter season. 

Last, but not least, I am wearing a very special gold "Healing Halo" head-wrap by Karma for a Cure. Not only is it a trendy way to dress up a look, but you can actually wear the wrap almost 4 different ways or use it as a belt! The best part about Karma for a Cure is the brand's inspiring and heartfelt story. I met the President of Karma for  Cure, Margaux Mintuolo, about a year ago at a Neiman Marcus holiday blogger bash and was immediatley drawn to her vibrance and amazing energy. (not to mention her GORG head chain) Margaux then shared her story and reason behind her business.  Both of her parents were diagnosed with cancer, her father specifically brain cancer, and she wanted to create fashion with a purpose. Karma for A Cure's Healing Halo collection donates directly to brain tumor research.  Her story and mission really touched me and makes you appreciate everything you have, especially your loved ones. 

So in simple terms… these are just a few of my favorite things. I wouldn't trade them, and they really help me get into the holiday spirit.

Back to Basics










Striped Dress: Old Navy | Vest: Donna Karan | Sunnies & Jewelry: Freida Rothman
 (Sunglasses coming Spring 15) 
Watch & Booties by: Michael Kors

Sometimes you gotta take it back to the basics for holiday, simple black and white with a small pop of color. This striped fit and flare dress is by Old Navy, and they have a lot of amazing options and styles for every body shape. (I am pear shape so fit and flare works best for me) Not only do they have great pieces, but at an even better price. Check out Old Navy's full dress selection for holiday here


I paired this look with a long vest by Donna Karan, black ankle booties, gold jewelry, and bright red lips. With my days being extremely crazy and busy I need to wear outfits that are functional and comfortable for work, yet cute enough for a holiday party from from the office to the city.  Can we talk about these amazeeee sunnies? They are the first peak at Freida Rothman's "Margaux" style sunglasses in black with matte gold available for Spring 2015 at the Freida Rothman Flagship Boutique.
(248 Mott Street in Nolita). 

What do you think of this look? Would you wear it?

Neon Trimmed Hooded Jacket








Jacket: UMGEE USA | Dress: ASOS | Tights: ASSETS by Sara Blakely | Gloves: Calvin Klein
 Jewelry & Sunglasses: Freida Rothman


The weather here in New York has been having some major mood swings over the past few days. First it's freezing, then it's warm, and now tomorrow it's suppose to be the first snowstorm of the season. (YIKES!) All of these weather changes mean lots of light weight layers for my wardrobe. This orange neon trimmed cargo jacket is by UMGEE USA. I love it because of the hood, and the fact that it's so lightweight. I've been pairing it with dresses, skirts, and leggings … it pretty much works with any look in my closet. This printed swing dress is by ASOS and is currently on sale ladies! (Did I mentioned it's really forgiving in all the right places?) I wore plain black tights under my dress which are Assets by Sara Blakely, I SWEAR BY THESE TIGHTS.  They don't snag easily, there warm, they have a great COMFORTABLE control top, the only catch is they don't come cheap (but well worth it). I think I own about 15 pairs of them lol I completed this casual eclectic look with black and gold booties, tan gloves, a navy knit beanie, tortoise sunnies, and a rabbit fur trimmed handbag. (sorry PETA)

There are some REALLY sunny days coming (aka peace out NY hello Miami) so stay tuned!
