Fashion Scoop: Alexander Wang x H&M

I mean can we just digest this information for a second please !
I thought I was excited about Spring time in New York but its nothing compared to how 
excited I am for November 6, 2014.  I can't wait to see images of this collection. I hope
they create some real leather bags for this collection. And I hope they make enough of
this collection and not sell out in like 5 minutes, which probably will happen because
hello it's Alexander Wang !

Splurge or Save: Chanel Espadrilles

Splurge vs. Save:

I wish I could buy some Chanel Espadrilles and not have a guilty conscious, but unfortunately
that's not the case for me. And probably for a lot of you out there still with student loans and
credit card debt too. If you don't mind not having those coveted double C's on your feet then 
you can just google or go to shopstyle.com and type "espadrilles flats" and viola! A whole
 bunch of options without having to worry about next months rent.

Lunch Break Craving: Jumpsuit Season

It's warming up out here in NYC, if you consider 50 degrees to be warm. For us it was like 
Summer  time last Saturday. I can't wait to buy a couple of things for Spring and Summer.
I am tired of these layers and would love to throw on a simple jumpsuit like the one above
with some sandals and call it a day. I'm going to LA next week for work and I am looking
forward to going outside and not have to be wearing a coat. I like you Winter but I think
its we took a much needed break.

And the Oscar goes to . . .

Loved watching the Oscar's last night because of the hilarious Ellen Degeneres and of course
the fashion. I think everyone was dressed amazing last night there was not one look I did 
not like but these are my favorite. 

Kate Hudson needs to tell us her secret like what type of water is she drinking because she's 
aging beautifully. Olivia Wilde looked tots-adorbs with her cute belly and even cuter fiance.
Lupita Nyong is a force to be reckoned with because she is both talented and her fashion 
sense is impeccable. Mrs. Timberlake a.k.a Jessica Biel brought sexy back in that stunning
Chanel number. I bet Justin Timberlake was drooling over his wife somewhere on tour.
Is any body watching The Fashion Police with the ruthless Joan Rivers tonight? 
because I am : )

Who were your favorites of the night?

NYFW: Anna Sui Fall 2014 Show

Better late than never. New York Fashion Week was a couple of weeks ago but I've been so 
busy with work and a little thing called "life" that blogging has taken the back burner. But slowly
and surely I will start to blog more once I settle into these new changes life has brought me.
So, here is an outfit I wore to watch the Anna Sui show (my first real fashion show I was able 
to attend as a non intern but as a "fashionista").
Boots: (Similar) Black Patent Combat Boots

Lunch Break Craving: Slip On Sneakers

I know I made it to work in this blizzard like weather here in NYC. Now I'm bored at work browsing
through the H&M website wanting to shop. As I sit here very nice and toasty I've decided slip on 
sneakers will be my Spring go-to shoes. Now I just hope it stops snowing long enough to wear one 
of these eventually.

Stay warm and safe !

Wedding Wednesday: Truly Zac Posen for David's Bridal

What bride would not love to have a designer dress and not have to spend the designer bucks?
Umm, this one here thank you very much. Zac Posen is a young talented women's wear designer
known for his beautiful constructed gowns resembling the likes of Dior and Balenciaga. The details
in his designs give a hint of vintage appeal but his colors and fabrics modernize them.

Zac Posen is not new to collaborations, he previous teamed up with Target for a ready-to-wear
collection. This collection for David's Bridal that launched this month features wedding gowns
ranging from $850 to $1,350. And social occasion dress for bridesmaids or prom ranging from
$195 to $225.

Above are a couple of my favorites. How gorgeous is that lavender one in the middle?!

Always Time for a Date Night

With Valentine's day quickly approaching I thought I'd post a "Date Night" outfit.
One of my favorite sites is ModCloth you can finds a complete outfit at a reasonable 
price here. Plus, their vintage inspired dresses are ADORABLE! Date nights I feel
give relationships a boost of confidence. If you're feeling down about yourself there 
is nothing better than quality time with the person that can always life your spirits.

Fashion Scoop: Peter Pilotto for Target

Target does it again !
I got my 3.1 Phillip Lim bag and now I need great Peter Pilotto printed piece. Which I will get
 my hands on come February 9, 2014. Just a little tip to you online shoppers like myself. For the
last designer collaboration with Target I went online at 12am thinking everything would be on sale
 but in reality nothing goes on sale until like 3am (12am pacific time) from my experience. So for 
those of you out there itching to get a piece from this collection set your alarms for 2am - 3am to
be safe. I'd much rather wake up and shop in the comfort of my own bed for an hour than go to 
a store hoping they have at least on piece of the collection in my size.

Can't wait to get a sweatshirt, and a skirt and maybe a bathing suit and some sneakers too !

Wedding Wednesday: You're engaged! Now what?

My first installment of Wedding Wednesday woop woop !
I don't think you guys know how excited I am to be able to finally write about wedding inspiration.
As exciting as wedding planning maybe if you're not organized and let planning take over your life it
becomes stressful. I've only been engaged a little over a month and I'm feeling the stress just thinking
about expenses and future plans. So, I just want to share my journey with you guys and if any of you
know of any cool helpful websites feel free to tell me, all the tips and inspirations are truly appreciated.

So, you've waited for this moment "The Ring", now what? Getting the ring was the easy part girl now
it's time to actually plan. But there's no need to freak out because engagements can be long and in the
course of a year or two you can definitely plan a gorgeous wedding without losing your mind. Listen to
me talking about this like I know, anyways after you tell all your loved ones the good news its
time you sit down with that lovely person that gave you that gorgeous sparkler and get to planning.

First, just agree on a wedding date range. You know like, are you more of a summer or winter
wedding girl? Picking a season is always good because you can start brainstorming possible decor.
Even getting down to the year is better because you have a specific time span. And if you can
agree on an actual date even better so start that countdown.

Next, budget. Don't freak out relax you have enough time to save no need to get hitched tomorrow.
Decide on a budget you're both comfortable with and then be sure to budget in a 10% to 20% overage
because usually lets be honest weddings go a little bit over and this way there will be no surprises.

And now, the fun part INSPIRATION ! I love me some Pinterest. Call me young, naive whatever you
want but I don't know what brides-to-be did before Pinterest. I know there're magazines and you can
tear out sheets which I have done so already. But having millions of images at your finger tips and just
having to 'click' and viola it's in your own wedding inspiration board is so easy. Don't get me wrong
magazines are great inspiration but don't sleep on those wedding sites and blogs there are so many
amazing ones. Just to name a few: Style Me Pretty, Once Wed, Snippet & Ink, Grey Likes Weddings,
Brooklyn Bride, and Enfianced.

Lastly, enjoy yourself and your significant other throughout the whole process because this is suppose
to be a fun time in your life. Ultimately something you will remember for the rest of your life and its
a blessing to have a beautiful wedding memory.
