Out on the Weekend

Hey guys!

Once 6:00 hit this past Friday my mind was off work! Everyday for me this week has been go, go, go so I couldn't wait to finally sit back and do absolutely nothing...or absolutely everything this weekend.

Friday night I caught up with my friend Steph, we chatted about work, fashion, boys, and life. We were watching The Knicks/Celtics game. 

She couldn't get over my Iron Man case lol she got a shot of Iron Man during halftime:

Saturday I took it easy it was great for once, I worked out, napped, then met my friend Aiesha to stop at Loveday 31, our favorite vintage spot. I have been eyeing this dress when Loveday posted it on instagram a few days ago:

Ivona the owner of Loveday 31, was nice enough to take the dress down for me to try it on. I didn't want to take it off! I love the 70's vibe, I can rock it with boots or platform sandals. It is the perfect dress for spring/summer hijinks that I am sure to get into.

Aiesha ended up with two items with some urging from me. One was a skater dress, and the other is a sequin top I love the oversize tshirt inspired fit!

We ended up meeting our friend's later at a beer garden nearby. It was an awesome time as always, we laughed, danced, took shots, and watched the game. 


Off to work I go tomorrow but I'm excited for the week ahead: prepping for fall 13 press, shooting resort 13 at the Lower East Side, shooting for the blog, and seeing the Knicks beat the Celtics at the Garden on Wednesday ha!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

I'm your National Anthem

Chaser LA Tee, Madewell Leather Shorts, Topshop pumps, Pucci Scarf,  Muubaa Leather Jacket

The sun is out and the city was calling my name on Sunday! I have been feeling amazing now that I am working out more often, showing off the curves, and eating right. There is nothing like a lazy Sunday where I can breathe and explore!

There is always a song during the springtime that always gets stuck in my head, right now it is "National Anthem" by Lana Del Rey. I know I'm a little late but it's a cool song to have on repeat exploring the city!

Scarf down

Hey guys!

A few weeks ago, I stopped by Eleven C Consignment shop in Park Slope. The boutique focuses on big names in great condition.

My purchase: An authentic Pucci 100% silk scarf. The a price for a 100% silk Pucci scarf in department stores/vintage store is can be from $350-$600. For those not familiar with the designer brand Pucci, it is was on the most iconic brands of the 20th century. Designer Emilio Pucci was born to one of Florence, Italy's oldest and most noble families. His designs first caught the eyes of fashion insiders during the 1940's.  

I got the scarf below for $120, an yes it's authentic! A lot of people sell the knock off version on eBay, ioffer stating the scarf is authentic.I usually wear scarfs in the winter time but lately I have been trying to get out of my comfort zone and try new things in regards to my style: adding more color and purchasing more staples in my closet. 

Eleven C boutique has a flagship store, located at 1st Avenue and 11th Street in Manhattan, the boutique is in its third year of buying, selling, and trading high-end apparel and accessories. Their section location in Park Slope opened a month ago.

The price points, are reasonable for the labels. Customers can expect to find jeans from J Brand to Burberry ($35-75), dresses from Diane von Fustenberg to Chanel ($250).  Designer handbags depending on the brand, will run you up into the thousands typical of consignment shops.

Besides wearing the scarf around my neck, lol for the money I paid I made sure there were a few places where I can wear it:
Using the scarf to add color to my black bag
lol new hair accessory!

I am excited about my purchase as a Pucci scarf is a staple to have in every closet, they are timeless! As I get older, I rather invest in timeless pieces than trendy pieces that last a season or two.

My thoughts and prayers go out to anyone affected by the bombing that took place during the Boston Marathon.  Postings of sadness and anger swept social media/blogs yesterday and today.  
I was feeling the same way, but instead of me doing a post saying "how sorry I am" I figured I can post ways for people to help.  I did have a post scheduled today but didn't feel comfortable with what was going on right now.

Social media
People often turn to Twitter for quick ways to connect. If you are in the Boston area and are looking for organizations seeking volunteers, or if you are far away but want to keep up with ways to help, follow the hashtag #BostonHelp on Twitter.

Boston Children's Hospital
Ten of the victims were taken to Boston's Children's Hospital. The hospital is updating its website with news as it becomes available. Follow @BostonChildrens on Twitter for updates. The Children's Hospital website also has useful resources for guidance on how to talk to children after a tragedy. Donate to Boston's Children's Hospital

One Fund Boston
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston's Mayor Tom Menino says the city has established 'One Fund Boston'. "At times like this we are one state, one city and once people," Governor Patrick said. Boston based insurance company John Hancock has already committed $1 million to the fund, which will raise money for families most affected by the bombings.  Donate to

Give Blood
Governor Patrick said there is a need for blood on a sustained basis. Anyone wishing to give blood should keep checking with local hospitals and organizations like the Red Cross in the near future to see where the need may be and where to donate.

Anything aside from that mentioned above is a scam. One Twitter account went live within an hour of the tragedy, claiming to donate $1 for Boston Marathon for every retweet. 

I will do regular posts and an outfit one sometime this week stay tuned and stay safe.

Dress Shoutout

Hey everyone!

Happy Monday and April fools! The next few weeks for me will be filled with market appointments back to back my full time job, so I wanted to give a quick shoutout to my Prabal Gurung For Target® Nolita Shirt Dress. This dress has been getting me through a lot of appointments: it's comfortable, modern, and the print is SICK!

I added my own twist to the dress by adding a statement necklace, fishnet tights, and my Rag & Bone pumps

I have been slowly getting into wearing more color, it's been a work in progress lol!
