All About That Base, Bout That Base, No Treble

Dress & Blazer: Forever 21 + | Shoes & Clutch: AOSOS 
Jewels: Freida Rothman | Hair by: A La Mode Salon 
Nails by Rose 

The weather is FINALLY getting a bit cooler and believe me, I am so excited to bring out the blazers! This past Sunday I went to a broadway play (50 shades of grey, yes hilariously raunchy and amazing) and this was my daytime city look.  I am obsessed with this sleeveless high neck cut-out printed skater dress from Forever 21 +, I own it in a few different color ways and I always get a ton of compliments on it.  The white blazer with black leather trim is one of my wardrobe essentials and closet staples. This look is all about the curves and angles. I can't help but think of that song All About That Base… I'm bringing booty back. I think it has such a positive message to embrace yourself. I paired the look with these fun ASOS "Solar System" heels and black/white 2 tone clutch. I always wear a ton of Freida Rothman rings (mixing and matching my stacks) and of course some chunky mixed metal bangles.  The overall look kind of has a 60s vibes, which I've been really into lately.  I decided to go brighter red with short bangs for the fall season, my hair is by the amazing talent at A La Mode Salon in Brooklyn. (I highly recommend) And last but not least, a special thanks to my fab hometown manicurist Rose who kills all my crazy designs, she is sooooo good!

BELLA MAG NYC really knows how to throw a good party! This past Monday (September 8th) the Bella Beauties threw an amazing event and cool concept soiree for NYFW, a sunset cruise. Now you are probably thinking ok… maybe a yacht or water-taxi esq. boat drove us around the harbor NOPE correction, I am talking about a legit real-deal sailboat! Did I mention equipped with a full bar and fabulous hors d'oeuvres? We chatted fashion, Lincoln Center runway shows and editorial content for the next issue with a view of the Statue of Liberty and NYC skyline to the left.  It was a wonderful evening, thank you for having us! A very special thank you to BELLA MAG's Dana Prigge xo

Runway Recap: Angel Sanchez Spring 2015

I wore this fab royal blue ASOS curve gown with a beaded sleeve detail and side slit. 

Obvi designer Angel Sanchez (pronounced An-Hill) is known for some out of this world evening wear designs.  This season Angel went bright and light for Spring 2015. Just a reminder for all of my readers fashion week is always a year in advance. Even though we didn't hit winter yet we are already working on producing next Springs looks for the market.  Angel Sanchez's ready-to-wear collection focused in on the perfect afternoon daytime chic looks. I immediately thought of "effortless class" as I watched the collection float down the runway.  Every piece looked F L A W L E S S and the execution impeccable. The silhouettes started out structured and tailored in tones of gray and white with vertical and horizontal transparent prints. It then transitioned into bright pops of bubblegum pink and lemon yellow into a light baby blue and some intricate patterns. Can we say "ladies who lunch" are going to be ALL over it.  There was not one piece I didn't like, even the accessories were extremely modern and cool.  After the show we went backstage to congratulate Angel and his wonderful team. He is such a doll and genuinely talened and amazing designer. 

My Spring 2015 Runway Recap: It's going to be about lemon yellows and laser cut-outs

Last night the Freida Rothman Flagship NYFW VIP Press Opening was in full swing at 248 Mott St. in NY's Nolita.  The night was filled with lots of fun including an EXTREMELY talented fashion sketch artist Orin, my fav nail artist Rose (yes my hometown girl who always does my amazing manis!),  and a full on "ring gifting bar".  Guests actually got to create their own stack ring set and pick out their favs. Not to mention the mouth watering food and champagne by a private Brooklyn based catering company (Mr. Guttman you rock!).  Freida looked absolutley flawless in a custom gown made by her talented sister of Pink Tulle Designs... yes it runs in the family.  We had such a great time chatting with all of the wonderful editors and bloggers who came out to support. A very special thanks to the team at Women's Wear Daily and The Accessories Council for making our night! It is really something special to watch everything come to life. The whole FR team has been working so hard over the past few months to make the flagship perfect and it really paid off.  There will be MANY more events over the next few months including a special Brunch Shop Day for friends and family on Sunday, September 28th from 11am-5pm. You can come check out the boutique anytime you are in the area ;) The FR Flagship is located at 248  Mott Street in NY's Nolita. 

So let's raise our glasses (come on pretend with me) and CHEERS to the Freida Rothman Flagship Boutique!
