From A to Zara

12th February 2014

While walking home from work last Friday, I popped by Zara to pick up blue suede shoes, but and found myself staring at leopard these pants. I wasn’t sure if I liked them or hated them, so of course I had to buy them…. (because that makes sense). So without even trying them on (I know, I was feeling super daring) I said YES to leopard ciggys and this oversized “chic” shirt!
Oh hey, have you heard about this crazy thing called Fashion Week? of course you have, but you may not know that I’ve teamed up with the amazing Claire Eliza over the weekend and today I’m sharing her amazing images. More to come from us later this week… so stay tuned, cause we’re awesome (well, Claire is, I’m just a wannabe).

Wearing more Zara than most would at once, and refusing to apologize for it:
From Zara: Coat (last seen here) // Tee // Pants // Shoes
Sunnies: Karen Walker // Bracelet: C.wonder // Lips: Wet&Wild
Necklaces: Jennifer Rex – Clover (also love this one) // Zodiac 
Bag: c/o Francescas (love this one, last seen here)
Shop for your own leopard moment:
At the time of purchase, I didn’t realize my tee was as massive as it really is, oops! but I managed to channel my inner Tim Gunn into a make it work moment by tying the top up a bit and adding a tailored coat… which surprise, surprise, also happens to be from Zara. The crazy thing is I only own a few pieces of Zara clothing, and apparently most of them seem to be in this post, birds of a feather? Oh well… Zara, I hope you enjoy your free add campaign starring the shortest girl in the room. #thinkingskinnythoughts

MBFW // Vivienne Tam

10th February 2014

I had a blast last night with Vivienne Tam & WeChat  – an awesome new app that provided front row and VIP access to everyone, read all about it here. My VIP Access granted me pre&post backstage access and made me feel like a celeb! Now I’ve stepped back down to earth and am sharing the highlights!

Throughout the show, fans & fashion-goes alike posted about their reactions, LIVE. It was an experience unlike any other, and I’m sure it made it extra special for those streaming at home. I loved being apart of this unique fashion feedback, and can’t wait to see how WeChat continues to create memorable moments for future fashion weeks and other events. 
Jumpsuit: Vintage // Shoes: Zara // Belt: Saks 5th via My Sisters Closet
Bracelet: C.wonder // Coat: Zara // Bag: Kate Spade // Rings: H&M 
Make sure to download the WeChat app to keep the convo going

NYFW x Claire Eliza

9th February 2014

Not to brag, My NYC group of gals is pretty cool. I have my life-long friend and former dance teammate turned blogger/Tommy Hilfiger designer Taylor, my High School Bestie and Stand-Up Comedian in the making Sheree and My Paris-obsessed Jetsetter slash Lawyer-to-be Sarah to name a few. Rounding out the group is an amazingly talented international photographer and the most amazing cook, Claire Eliza.
Fashion week has taken over NYC. I’m headed front row to Vivienne Tam tonight with WeChat, and Cynthia Rowley with Taylor next week, but spent yesterday morning at Lincoln Center with Claire as she captured some amazing street style pics, and today I’m sharing the highlights.
