Gotta admit I haven’t been a fan of Versace’s work for the past couple of seasons but this Spring Summer 2012 collection has instantly changed my views. Wearable? not so much….but a piece of art? absolutely!

From the cinched in waist line, circle skirt silhouette, to the perfectly pretty pleats….you cant get any more womanly than this!

What has been your favorite collection so far from New York fashion Week?

Chains & Stripes

posted by on 2011.09.14, under Outfit Of The Day

Funny how sometimes things come in full circle…actually is it safe to say that it always does?

Today my assistants and I will be at FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising), the college where I graduated from, styling one of their campaigns! Im sure I will be  reminiscing of those sleepless college nights and freshman 15 days. haha

and I think it’s about time for me to switch up my regular jewelry mix! So I decided to experiment with layering on some of my favorite chains from Kate Spade & Express. Sometimes we all get so caught up with our regular routines..it’s always nice to experiment and get re inspired!

She Shimmers & Glitters

posted by on 2011.09.13, under Lovely Obsessions

Pretty much obsessed with anything that shimmers and glitters these days and may I add a  rekindled love affair for anything sequins.

A couple of snapshots of some of my collection  of glitter & sequins. 

Decided to tone it down by adding a more conservative cardigan from Lanvin to  this glammed up sequins Roberto Cavalli mini. 

And of course my absolute favorite pair of heels by Jimmy Choo. Shining from a mile away is an understatement when wearing these babies. 

Practically lived in the bathroom of our hotel at the Royalton in New York…Although I must admit it is quite awkward to see your body in every angle possible.

Scored this Zara skirt in New York…fits like a glove and shines like a disco ball!

Ecstatic that the holidays are just a couple months away! Sequins and all that glitter gets me in that oh so jolly holiday mood! ( Am I getting a little ahead of myself? lol)

And like I promised…here’s one of my childhood School photos! Love how my mom styled me in a peter pan collar printed blouse layered with a white eyelet dress. Seems like mama wanted my face to be framed with those buttoned up collars. Looked like I learned a thing or 2 from my mom!

So…To Smile Or Not To Smille??? Obviously I was too timid to smile back then! and YES I was quite the shy one growing up! :P

Wanted to scan more images for you guys but all my school photos are at my parents house in the bay area. So maybe next time I will show you some more!

Hope you guys learned a thing or 2 from this tutorial and you got a good laugh from my timid little school photo!

Dance In The Rain

posted by on 2011.09.07, under Outfit Of The Day

I have officially greeted the unexpected showers in the city with my (new) 3.1 Phillip Lim Coat! I have been patiently waiting to rock this coat ever since I scored it at the Barney’s Warehouse Sale last month!!  The Giraffe print had me at hello but it was really the stitching and leather lining that swept me off my feet. We’ve been having so much fun in the city and we simply cant wait for Fashion’s Night Out tonight! (Here’s where you can find me tonight).

“ANYONE who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain..”

Like I always say trends come and go but classics are here to stay! So here’s living proof of just that- Coach is bringing back their Classic “Duffle” bag from the 1970s! Yes…I just said the 70s!

so heres 3 reasons why I adore this bag-

1. It’s chic, sleek, practical and timeless!

2. It’s sooooo roomy that it fits my (oh so complicated) life  in it!

3. I’l be celebrating the Duffle’s return with Coach & with other uber stylish individuals!

Im proud to announce my collaboration with Coach for Fashion’s Night Out alongside with Hanneli, Man Repeller, The Glamourai, Into The Gloss, Tales of Endearment,  and The Blay Report.

So I would love to invite all of my fellow fashionistas/ fashionistos to join me this Thursday (Sept. 8th) at 7 pm at the Coach store- 595 Madison Avenue in New York City! Lets celebrate the biggest night of fashion together in style this year! We’ll party the night away back in time to the 70′s!

Cant wait to party & meet yall!
